Dratini (Japanese: ミニリュウ Miniryū) is a serpent like Dragon-type Pokémon. You can obtain one in HeartGold and SoulSilver by talking to the Master in the Dragon's Den after you obtain a TM from Clair.


It has a white circle like gem on its forehead, and its eyes are light purple. It has two developing wings at the sides of its head, which grow to be enormous as it evolves. It has a white belly, and is light blue the rest of the way. Dratini looks like some sort of snake or sea monster. Dratini are born large, and as they shed their skin, they grow larger. They have a massive amount of energy rapidly increasing inside of their bodies, hence, they have great strength which grows exponentially as they evolve.

Special abilities

Shed Skin- Every turn there is a 1 in 3 chance of removing a burn, paralysis, sleep, poison, or frozen condition.

In the anime

In the anime, Dratini first appeared in the episode "The Legend of Dratini". This episode is set in the Safari Zone, and sees Ash and the Safari Warden protect a Dragonair and Dratini Dratini. This episode was banned outside of Japan due to the Warden and Team Rocket threatening several characters with a gun.


Dratini evolves into Dragonair at level 30, who then evolves into Dragonite at level 55.
