Pokémon Picture Details

Drayden used Haxorus in his battle against Iris' Excadrill. It has many powerful attacks including Dragon Tail which it used in order to defeat Excadrill. It was then later used in Drayden's Gym Battle against Iris where it once again faced off against Iris' Excadrill. In this battle, things got even more tense than before with Haxorus not managing to withstand Excadrill's attacks. However, with its Giga Impact move, it ended up falling in battle at the same time as Excadrill.

Drayden used Druddigon second in his Gym Battle against Iris. Used against Iris' Dragonite, it managed to hold its own in battle with moves such as Double Team, Dragon Pulse and Dragon Claw. Being able to survive most of Dragonite's attacks, it managed to try and confuse Dragonite. However, Dragonite saw through it but eventually Druddigon won with Dragon Tail.
