the tricky part about this is that most (i think all) dragon type moves in gen 3 were special attacking moves, and dragonite's physical attack is better than its special attack

Mod note: We no longer allow questions of this style, and ask that any new contributions for Gen 3 movesets be made on the main thread linked below.

Just dump EVs in SAtk.

Dragonite @ w/e
Inner Focus
Mild/Modest nature.
252 SAtk/ 160 HP/ 88 SDef
- Draco Meteor
- Fire Blast
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt

sorry I can't remember off the top of my head what all wasnt in Gen 3 so I left items alone.

Draco meteor isn't gen 3.
Fix Draco Meteor for Dragon Pulse and you're good.
Dragon Pulse is Gen 4.
Come on people. Gen. III
Dragon Claw is good :)

Because almost everything Dragonite can learn are special moves, try this set,

Dragonite @ anything you want
Inner Focus
252 Sp. Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP

Outrage- This attack will serve you well! With 120 base power and the because dragon type moves have the best neutral coverage in the game, it is a must in 3 Gen games for taking care of the few other dragon types around.

Fire Punch- Roast Grass, Bug, Ice, and Steel types today! This is a great move with 75 base power and 100 acuraccy it is perfect against ice types, Dragonites bane!

Waterfall- And with a crashing impact the water fall hit! A great move on Dragonite. It will make sure all those ground(because they usually have rock typ moves) and especially rock type die before they hit you.

Substitute/Protect- And watch them attack to no avail! If you have Leftovers or Shell Bell use Substite, if not then use Protect to avoid damage if you predict a powerful move or priority or simply to annoy your opponent.

This will definitly help you progress through any Gen 3 game!

All 3 attacking moves are Special...
There. I fixed it.
What's the point of investing SAtk on a Physical set? He won't be using SAtk with Physical moves!
Man, even Outrage won't OHKO Bagon...
ErickHill, in Gen 3 all moves, physical or special,  were judged based on their type, not their own characteristics

well because there aren't many dragon types in gen. 3 I would recommende these moves:

Because it's a very powerfull move that can be used to destroy entire teams!
Also it's good for when you do come across another dragon type.

I will give my Dragonite good elemental moves so it can take on EVERYONE:

Ice Beam

With these moves you will have no attack weakness
