Dragonair may also be based on the imugi, a proto-dragon that resembles a snake and lives in water or caves, much like Dragonair. After an imugi lives a thousand years, a jewel (called a Yeouiju) will fall from the sky. If the imugi catches it, it will become a true dragon.

The jewels on Dragonair"s neck and tail might also be a reference to Chinese dragons"s associations with pearls.

You can see the snake-like Dragonair has this jewel as part of it"s design on it"s neck. (And may I just say Dragonair and it"s shiny are beautiful?) Dragonair is also part of the Water 1 Egg group, which further ties into it"s possible Imugi origins.

Dragonite also looks like common depictions of Dragons, hence the "True Dragon" part.
