Pokémon world locations

The Dragon's Den (Japanese: りゅうのあな Dragon's Hole) is a location in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver.

It is inaccessible before defeating Clair in the Blackthorn Gym, as it is blocked off by a man in front of the cave, and then it must be traversed to finally obtain the Rising Badge.

In Crystal, HeartGold and SoulSilver, many strong Trainers can be found within the cavern. The Master of the Dragon User Clan is located here, and he will quiz the player on their attitude towards and treatment of their Pokémon. If the player gives compassionate answers, the player will be rewarded with a Dratini that knows ExtremeSpeed (though this requires speaking to Clair on the way to the cave exit, and then returning to speak with the Master once more).

Silver can be found here, contemplating his training on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Clair will visit to reward the player with the Rising Badge she refused to award in the Gym, as well as TM24 (DragonBreath)GSC or TM59 (Dragon Pulse)HGSS.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, after the battle against Silver at Mt. Moon, Lance and Clair will appear to challenge the player and Silver to a Tag Battle.

It is a prize for correctly answering the questions given by the Dragon Master in the Dragon Shrine. If any wrong answers are given, the player will still receive a Dratini but it will have Leer instead of ExtremeSpeed.

After completing the quiz, the player will then need to receive the TM from Clair. After this, returning to the Dragon's Den elder will result in him giving the Dratini to the player.

In the anime

Dragon's Den in the anime

The Dragon's Den appeared in Fang's For Nothin', where it was reduced to a series of tunnels leading to the Dragon Holy Land. The Dragon Holy Land takes over for the Dragon's Den's other roles, including the location of the Shrine and Dragon Fang.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Dragon's Den is featured in Debonaire Dragonair. Clair battles Suicune here but fails to defeat it. According to Clair only the Pokémon that have been living on the site with her family are allowed there.

Trivia

  • While the Japanese names of the Trainers battled in the Dragon's Den are the same in both generations that this place is featured, the English names for those Trainers are different.
