Dratini is a rare dragon-type Pokémon that, if raised properly, can be a great addition to your team. You can find these elusive Pokémon in the Safari Zone, or loot your piggy bank to buy Dratini at the Rocket Game Center. Skip to Step 1 to learn how to add Dratini to your Pokédex without breaking a sweat.

Steps

Method 1 of 2: Catching Dratini in the Safari Zone

Catch Dratini Pokemon Fire Red Step 1

Step 1. Get a Super Rod

To catch Dratini you will need the best rod in the game. You can get the Super Rod on Route 12, in the house where a Fisherman lives. Talk to him to receive a Super Rod.

Step 2. Go to the Safari Zone

You can only catch Dratini in the Safari Zone. You don't have to worry about the Pokémon you will encounter, because there are no battles in the Safari Zone. You can reach the Safari Zone from Fuchsia City.

Step 3. Start fishing

Dratini can be caught in any of the four areas of the Safari Zone. Cast your rod into any body of water to start fishing. The chance that you will catch Dratini is 15%.

  • Once you've hooked a Pokémon, press the A button to confirm the hook; if you don't, the Pokémon will escape.
  • The chance of getting Dragonair, the evolved version of Dratini, is 1%.

Step 4. Throw a Rock

When you start a battle in the Safari Zone you have four options: you can throw Bait, a Rock (stone), a Safari Ball, or you can choose to run away. Throwing Bait decreases the chance that the Pokémon will flee, but it also decreases the chance of being caught. Throwing a Rock makes it easier to catch the Pokémon, but it also increases the chance that the Pokémon will flee.

It makes no sense to throw Bait first and then a Rock. If you want to increase your chance of catching you can either throw one Rock or a Bait followed by two Rocks

Step 5. Throw a Safari Ball

If Dratini doesn't catch the ball right away, Dratini gets the chance to flee. If Dratini flees you will have to go fishing again to catch another one. If Dratini doesn't run, you can try to throw a Safari Ball again when it's your turn again.

Step 6. Train your Dratini

Once you've caught Dratini, you can start training so Dratini will evolve into Dragonite. Thanks to his speed and dragon-like attacks, Dratini can be used in multiple team compositions. To get the most out of training, read this manual to learn how to train your Dratini to your liking based on EV (effort values) - this can have a big impact on the way your Dratini fights.

Step 2. Gamble or buy the credits

You can use the slot machines to earn the credits you need. If you don't have the time for that but have enough money on hand, you can also buy the credits. If you want to gamble on it, you should know that certain slots have better odds of winning than others - which ones, however, change each time you enter the room.
