My friend REALLY wants a shiny Dragonite (Personally I think it's gross) as a Christmas gift. After hours in the Safari, I finally find a shiny Dragonair but there's a problem. It's ability is Shed Skin/Inner Focus and it's Nature is Docile. I check it's IV's and I get HP and Def. She's not a competitive player but I want to make this work.
What kind of Moveset and EV spread should I go for?
Without Multiscale, is Dragon Dance worth it? Maybe play to it IV's and go 252 HP / 252 Def ?
Yeah, you're probably gonna want something offensive. You could run a bulky support set with Thunder Wave/Light Screen/Roost/Dragon Tail. It would be inferior to any multiscale sets, but you would have the advantage of your opponent expecting multiscale. As far as offensive goes, you could try a scarfed rain sweeper with Hurricane/Thunder/Draco Meteor/Ice Beam. With thunder wave or sticky web support, it can be a pain to deal with.

DO NOT touch that Dragonite, i repeat, do not touch it. Keep it in your box and let it be, for now. Mega Dragonite is inevitable, so knowing that, it's ability will change regardless upon it's mega evolution. Which is perfect for this shiny Dragonite, exactly what it needs. Obviously, Multiscale would have been perfect for switch ins, but this alternative is better than nothing if you think about your situation.
