More Information About Drednaw
Drednaw’s jagged teeth are strong enough to bite through rock, iron, and everything in between, as evident from the Pokémon Direct video, showing it taking a bite out of a Gigalith in battle. Despite having a heavy shell, its muscles are well-developed, preventing it from hindering its speed.
It takes a skilled Trainer to tame a Drednaw and there are many stories of Trainers unable to handle the fierce nature of Drednaw having no other option but to release them back into the wild.
