Where to Catch Dratini in Pokemon Let’s Go
Here’s everything you need to know about where to catch Dratini in Pokemon Let’s Go.
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee allow you to relive the journey through Kanto first seen in the original Red and Blue. This time around, however, you’ll be accompanied by either Pikachu or Eevee instead of the original starter Pokemon. After gathering your things and heading out of Pallet Town, it’s time for the journey to begin.
You’ll have to search high and low to collect all 151 Pokemon in the world of Kanto. Some of these monsters you’ll find all over the place like Rattata and Pidgey. Some of the other Pokemon can be more elusive. Whether you’re new to the game or have been a veteran to the series, Dratini is a Pokemon you’ll certainly have your eye on. Mainly because its final evolution, Dragonite, is such a powerhouse that you’ll want it on your team.
Where to Catch Dratini
First, Dratini can not be obtained prior to learning the secret technique Sea Skim, which is Let’s Go’s version of Surf. Sea Skim can be taught to either Pikachu or Eevee in Fuchsia City at the southern most point of the map. You will find a man standing next to a Lapras outside of the Pokemon Go Park who will teach Sea Skim after engaging in conversation with him.
Once you have this ability, it’s time to head back to Rock Tunnel, which is located just east of Cerulean City. This is the cave you traveled through to reach Lavender Town just a few badges ago. Before entering Rock Tunnel, you’ll notice an area of water in the top right corner of the map, use Sea Skim and move along the water. Dratini can be found in this small river, but its chance of appearing is only 4%, and you can find its evolution Dragonair, but that is only 1%.
Use a Lure or Super Lure from your inventory to increase the chance of one of these Pokemon appearing. It may take some time to find one of them, but be patient and you’ll eventually find Dratini.
