Dratini is based on salamander larvae (presumably the Chinese giant salamander Andrias davidianus).
🐉
There is some confusion in the pokémon literature over whether Dratini is based on an amphibian larvae or a sea serpent. Many of Dratini’s pokédex entries refer to how it continually sheds its skin - a feature characteristic of snakes.
🐉
However, many amphibians also shred (and eat!) their skin as they grow. Additionally, the pokédex mentions that Dratini shelter behind waterfalls during this process - further evidence that Dratini is based on a freshwater amphibian larvae rather than a sea snake.
🐉
Dratini resembles the limbless larval stages of the salamander life cycle. Its large head ‘fins’ are based on the larvae’s external gills. Dratini is extremely rare, reflecting the critically endangered Chinese giant salamander. Species classification as a giant salamander is supported by characteristics of Dragonite, which will be further explored in a later post.

Anemones belong to the class Anthozoa which also includes corals and sea fans. These animals are solitary polyps who mostly live attach to hard surfaces such as rocks, corals, shells and man made structures. Some types of anemones are very famous for the symbiotic relationship that they develop with anemonefish like the famous clown fish (Nemo). By allowing these fish to live around its body , the anemone is able to get rid off parasites or dying tissue that the fish enjoy eating. In return the anemonefish gets protection from the anemone tentacles and food scraps from the anemones left overs.
