Pokemon GO: How To Find Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite

Pokemon GO features more than hundred Pokemon from the first generation. Unfortunately, the first generation only had a single Dragon type Pokemon called Dratini that can be evolved into Dragonite.

There are a few ways to get your hands on a Dragonite, which is the last form of the Dragon type Pokemon. He looks rather bad ass and can be classified as a rare type of Pokemon.


There are different ways to capture Dragonite and one of them includes trying to hatch a 10 KM egg. You can refer to this guide here on the type of Pokemon that can be hatched with 2 KM, 5 KM and 10 KM eggs. Needless to say, Dratini is one of the 16 Pokemon that can be hatched with a 10 KM egg so there is a 1 out of 16 chance that the player will get a Dratini from a hatched egg. They can be then evolved to a Dragonite by feeding them Dragon Candy as seen below.

The other method to capture a Dragonite is to evolve a Dratini or Dragonair to Dragonite. This Pokemon hangs out near Parks or Wooden areas and can be captured from there. It then requires 25 Dragon type Candies to evolve to the next form, Dragonair. It can be then further evolved to Dragonite with 100 Dragon Candies.

Dragon type Pokemon can also be located in big cities near Pokestops with a lot of Lures. There is a good chance that you might be able to capture a Dragonair or Dragonite from such a location. You can then try to capture it using this simple trick that can help in conserving Poke Balls.

Pokemon GO is available now for the iOS and Android.

    I fucking hate all of you guys,you catch 10 dratini’s each day while I’m level 22 and don’t have a SINGLE FUCKING ONE!!!

    It’s not a dumb mistake at all. Gyarados’ design was based off of a dragon. In mythology there was a kind of fish who only had one goal in it’s life: to swim up a waterfall.

    If this fish ever succeeded, it would turn into a dragon. They just never gave him a dragon typing until he got a mega evolution. The fact that his mega evolution is dragon kinda helps your case a bit too. He even origionally had access to moves like “Dragon Rage”.

    A few days ago when I was only a level 11 I was on bus back to my hometown at about 4:00 PM and I decided to play some pokemon go. About 5 minutes in the bus came to a red light, I looked down at my phone and saw a wild dragonite, I quickly tapped on it and caught that son of a bitch, CP 988.

    I managed to find a dragonite IN THE WILD in a hotspot in my town. There were about 4 or 5 poke stops all with lures right next to each other, and it spawned late at night. As expected, all 200 or so people in that area all ran towards it excitedly

    He isnt the only dragon-type pokemon. Isnt gyarados a dragon type too? Or am i wrong. im pretty sure he is. Or is he flying water not dragon water. I know its one of those two.

    • David Guerreiro

      Gyarados is water/flying, so yes these three are the only dragons at the moment.

      • Daniel Howell

        Oh ok, i knew it was either water/flying or water/dragon. Thx

    • Bradley Letourneau

      • jackietheboss23

        • Bradley Letourneau

    • jackietheboss23

      Gyrardos is a water type if its a dragon type it would be as a flying type but its a water type pokemon

  • Lolserus

    You know dratini hatches from a 10km egg, not dragonite… A simple google check before posting an article would be nice.

      Sorry for the mistake, it has been corrected now.
