How to Get Dragonite in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

First, it is good to point out that the only way to get a Dagonite in both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl can be done by leveling up your Dratini all the way into one. With that said, you can get a Dratini in two places, on Mt. Coronet, and on the Grand Underground. But be advised, as Dratini will only appear after you defeated both the Elite Four and Cynthia, and get the National Pokédex, which you can get by visiting Professor Rowan on Sandgem Town after completing your Sinnoh Pokédex. If you haven’t already, check out where to catch Dratini in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl for a step-to-step guide on where to find the Dragon-type on all locations available.

Once you get Dratini, you can evolve them into a Dragonair by leveling them up to level 30. After that, you just need to level your Dragonair all the way to level 55, and he will evolve into a Dragonite.
