Dratini is a Tier 1 raid boss in Pokémon Go and is a part of the Pokémon Go Ultra Anniversary event running from Wednesday, July 6, 2022, at 10:00 am local time, to Tuesday, July 12, 2022, at 8:00 pm local time.
Being a pure Dragon type, it is weak to the Dragon, Fairy and Ice types.
Dratini goes on to evolve into the powerful Dragonite, a fan favorite and pseudo legendary that has remained meta relevant in both PvE and PvP for years now. A Dratini raid is a great way to possibly get a high IV Shiny for yourself. Get that little pink dragon, y’all! Just a note, it is a full odds shiny (roughly 1 in 500), so it is a tricky shiny to get.
Dratini can be caught with the following CP values:
- 529 – 574 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
- 661 – 717 CP at Level 25 with Windy weather boost
It is an easy solo.
