To obtain the Dratini with ExtremeSpeed in Pokémon Crystal, you must give a specific set of answers during the Dragon’s Den trial. You can do this right after defeating Gym Leader Clair in Blackthorn City.
She’ll tell you to head into the Dragon’s Den and find the Dragon Shrine if you want the Rising Badge. There, a monk will ask some questions about Pokémon.
There are a few different answers that’ll get you approved by the Master, but only the following answers will get you the Dratini:
|Perfect Dragon’s Den Quiz Answers
|What are Pokémon to you?
|What helps you to win battles?
|What kind of Trainer do you wish to battle?
|What is most important for raising Pokémon?
|Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. Which is more important?
Note: Be sure to re-enter the Dragon Shrine again after Clair hands you the TM24 DragonBreath and talk to the Master – that’s when you’ll get your Dratini with ExtremeSpeed.
Finding the Dragon Shrine to Take the Quiz
The Dragon’s Den is right behind the Gym in Blackthorn City. You’ll need a Pokémon with Surf to cross the lake behind the Gym and reach the Dragon’s Den.
Note: This Pokémon or another one in your party should know Whirlpool too.
Head to the westernmost point of the coast to begin working your way down.
Use Surf and go straight down until a whirlpool blocks your path.
Use Whirlpool to remove it and cross to the other side.
Follow the water and you’ll soon reach dry land.
The Dragon Shrine is a few steps away from the coast.
Talk to the Master inside to begin the quiz.
Remember to choose only the answers listed at the beginning of this guide to get the ExtremeSpeed Dratini.
What’s Special About a Dratini with ExtremeSpeed?
|ExtremeSpeed Move Details
|Strikes first against most moves.
ExtremeSpeed is Quick Attack’s older, Dragon-type sibling.
Just like Quick Attack, it gets priority over almost every other move. This helps you go first even if your Pokémon is slower than your opponent.
Tip: The only moves with higher priority are Detect, Endure, and Protect.
On the other hand, it has much more Power than Quick Attack. It’s also Dragon-type, so Dratini gets same-type attack bonus (STAB) damage when using it.
ExtremeSpeed on a Dragonair or Dragonite is a massive asset when challenging the Elite Four or the Battle Tower.
