How to catch Dratini in Pokemon Let's Go? Catching a Dratini in Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee can be difficult compared to the methods of getting it in the previous Kanto games. No Coin Case means players cannot buy a Dratini in the Celadon City Game Corner and are instead required to find one in the wild.


Here is a guide on how to catch Dratini in Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee. 

​​How to catch Dratini in Pokémon Let's Go

The most important thing players must do to catch a Dratini in Pokémon Let's Go is to make sure their Pikachu or Eevee learns the move Sea Skim from the Lapras trainer in Fuschia City's GO Park. Sea Skim is this generation's replacement for the HM move Surf, which Pokémon use to help the trainer surf across bodies of water.


After teaching Pikachu or Eevee Sea Skim, the player must go to Route 10 and use Sea Skim on the waters outside of Cerulean City. 


Route 10 will be filled with Tentacool and Magikarp, but players should find a Dratini in the water, too, though it won't be easy. Dratini only has a 4 percent spawn rate, so it will be helpful to use a lure in order to increase the chances of getting the Pokémon.


Dratini will evolve to Dragonair at level 30 and will reach its final evolution, Dragonite, at level 55.
