Question for Pokemon FireRed

Whats a good move set for dragonite? Mines at level 55 and it knows ice beam, thunder wave, dragon rage, and wing attack. When does it learn dragon claw, outrage, and hyper beam?

A Dragonite does not learn Dragon Claw naturally, but I think he learns Outrage at Lv. 65, me personally, I don't like Outrage, I don't think that it's a good move, much less a good Dragon Move.
But, I think that a good moveset for a Dagonite of the Advanced generation would be:

Dragon Claw (To keep the fellow Dragon Types at bay)
Flamethrower or Iron Tail (To melt or smash the ice types that come your way, and to flame broil a few other types, and Steel is Super Effective against Ice types, this will allow you to bypass the other types of all Hybrid Pokemon out there)
Thunderbolt (Electric is a good type, plus, a majority of the Ice types out there are hybrids, more specifically Water/Ice type hybrids)
I think that Wing Attack is a good move, and Thunder Wave is also a considerable move, Dragonite is already a fast Pokemon, and Thunder Wave will assure his/her first strike, good moves to have until Hyper Beam comes your way at Lv. 75.

CrystalTitan1, out!

This is what I would have...

Ice Beam
Arial Ace
Dragon Claw

It doesn't learn Dragon Claw this is tm 02 (Found on Victory Road.)
Outrage- lv. 50 Dratini**** lv. 56 Dragonair**** lv. 61 Dragonite
Hyper Beam- lv. 57 Dratini**** lv. 65 Dragonair**** lv. 75 Dragonite

Hope this helps.

Personally, I would chose these moves.

Dragon Rush. It Dragonite's special move and it is one of the 7 pokemon that learn it during leveling up, and it is a very powerful move, guaranteed to KO or or lower HP very quickly if you fight a Dragon pokemon your level.

Dragon Claw. It's one of those backup moves if you get tired of using Dragon Rush or run out of PP for it.
Outrage. Even though this causes confusion after the user uses Outrage for 2 to 3 turns, it is still a very good move to wipe out an opponent's team.

Surf. Dragonite, even though water doesn't effect it much, can learn water-type moves. This is a very huge advantage over rock type pokemon (one of Dragonite's weaknesses)and fire types as a bonus.
Thunder. Amazingly, Dragonite is only x1 affected by electric type moves even though its a flying type. It can also use electric type moves. So, if you already used your Thunderbolt TM, Thunder is a great substitute. It has less PP and accuracy, but it deals more damage.

Fly (or Areial Ace/Wing Attack). Fly is another great move, and so are Areial Ace and Wing attack. You should have only about one flying type move in your arsenal, because there are still room for some other good moves. I would only choose at least one flying type move because you can easily KO fighting type pokemon.

I hope this helps,
A Dragonite Fan.

Dragon rush sucks. All you people on super cheats don't know what you're talking about.

Noob, how you could say sufr is a good move? Best move for Dragonite are physical moves (because attack is the best stat, not spec. Attack). So best use have Earthquake, Outrage, Fire Punch and Brick Break. For defense against other Pokemon you can choose thunder or flamethrower, but do do not surf please.
