and the Master in HeartGold and SoulSilver
The Master of the Dragon Tamer clan appears in Pokémon Crystal, HeartGold and SoulSilver. When spoken with for the first time, he will perform a quiz on the player to evaluate their care for their Pokémon. After the quiz, the Master will reward the player with a Dratini, which will know the move ExtremeSpeed if all questions are answered correctly. In Pokémon Crystal, this is the only way Dratini can learn this move. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, this Extreme Speed Dratini can, if male, pass on the move to offspring Dratini as an Egg move, and can still pass it on if transferred forward to Generation V. It is obtained at level 15 in all games.
Two of the Master's descendants are Lance and Clair. Both of these Trainers are capable battlers who also use the Dragon type. Sometimes, they will come to the cave and visit their relative.
