Dratini (Japanese: ミニリュウ Miniryuu) is a Dragon-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Anatomy

It has a white, circular, gem-like object 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.

Natural abilities

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

Evolution

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