Drayden in the Anime
Drayden made his first unofficial appearance in a flashback of Iris in Iris and Excadrill Against the Dragon Buster!. He congratulated Iris for her victory and gladly accepted a challenge from her. (Iris having said: "The next battle's our 100th win and it would be awesome to win against a Dragon Master at the same time.") However, he appeared to be a very formidable opponent winning in just one move. Drayden and The Elder exchanged a knowing look, implying he was the
Iris challenging Drayden.
one who asked The Elder to give Axew to Iris when she starts her journey.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • His Japanese Leader title is スパルタン メイヤー / Suparutan Meiyaa. "Spartan Mayor"
  • Drayden slightly resembles Reshiram, while Iris resembles Zekrom.
  • Drayden is Iris' mentor and he plans to let her run the Gym when he retires (in White).
  • His name slightly resembles the word dragon.
  • He offers to teach Draco Meteor to the player after the Elite Four have been defeated the first time in White.
  • Drayden and Iris use the same teams but have differences in gender and the ability of their Druddigon. Drayden has an all-male team with a Rough Skin Druddigon, while Iris has an all-female team with a Sheer Force Druddigon.
  • In Pokemon Black and White, Iris and Drayden's Haxorus was underleveled as Fraxure does not evolve until Level 48. This was changed in Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, with Drayden's Haxorus matching the exact level it needs to evolve from a Fraxure.
  • He does not battle Ash as the eighth and final Gym Leader of Unova in the anime, as his gym is closed.
  • He is the oldest final Gym Leader yet being older than Kanto's Giovanni and Blue, Johto's Clair, Hoenn's Juan and Sinnoh's Volkner.
