If he is a major member of your team then I prefer not.
But if you are using him as an HM slave then sure!
Here is a set that might help you, It includes Fly & Surf.

  • Surf- Coverage, Requested move, Good Accuracy
  • Fly- Helps Flying to different towns + STAB, Requested move
  • Strength- Good HM to use on a Slave
  • Substitute- Stalling + Protection

For In-Game, it is fine.
For Competative Play, no. Only Surf would be a viable move.

Here are some other choices:

  1. Mew
  2. Lugia
  3. Pelipper
  4. Latias
  5. Latios
  6. Rayquaza
  7. Arceus
  8. Ducklett
  9. Swanna
  10. Hydreigon

Dragonite is under the "other" choices? Just saying...and maybe subtract the legendaries/Ubers from it if you are suggesting good HM slave to use, but I understand you just put down a list of pokemon that can learn Fly and Surf.

If you are earlier into the game, say you start over, I suggest catching a Ducklett. You can evolve it into Swanna, to make it a worthwhile pokemon. You can go with the Dragonite if you want, but it is quite a good pokemon to be slapping HMs on. Hydreigon is an alternative choice to Dragonite, because it is almost a remake, (both are very powerful pokemon.) The safest you can go is to pick Swanna/Ducklett.

So you're main answer is don't teach it to Dragonite?
