Trivia

  • Dratini's prototype name was "Dragoon," meaning a European military unit, but was probably used as a play on the word "dragon," or as a combination of "dragon" and "lagoon." Coincidently, Dragoon is the name of a craft used on Kirby Air Ride
  • There is a Digimon that was mistakenly given a dub name based on Dratini's name. The English writing team for the Digimon 02 dub were having a chat with fans and asked for ideas for the name of a Digimon that would debut in the last episode. One of the members attempted to type out "Dratinimon" (either as a joke, or out of not understanding copyright laws) and misspelled it as "Datirimon". The name was ironically accepted and used in the show as the localized name of Pipimon. [1].
  • Controversy on an episode where Dratini is introduced, was banned from American audiences due to a character placing a gun in Ash's face (among a few others).
  • Dratini's Red, Blue, and Green sprites looked more like snakes or worms than dragons because of the stripes on its underbelly (which were removed in Yellow).
  • Dratini is the first Dragon Pokémon in National Dex order.
  • Dratini and its evolutions share the same species name with Horsea and its evolutions and Salamence. They are all known as Dragon Pokémon.

Origin

It appears to be based upon sea serpents or lóng, traditional Chinese dragons who bring good luck.

Name origin

Dratini's name appears to be a combination of dragon and teeny, meaning small. Despite this, it is fairly large for a Pokémon, being nearly six feet (1.8 meters) in length. Its Japanese name, a combination of miniature and 竜 ryū, dragon, has a similar meaning.

In other languages

  • German: Dratini
  • French: Minidraco - Comes from miniature and draco, which is Latin for "dragon".
  • Korean: 미뇽 Minyong
