15 Min Read

Lately I contemplated the query, “What's the Rarest Pokémon in Pokémon GO?” and needed to determine this out. By way of a survey on my social media, folks might choose which Pokémon (out of a listing of 57 Pokémon) they've of their assortment. Right here's a take a look at the ultimate statistics (as of September twenty seventh 2023) and outcomes of the survey:

NOTE: This text doesn't embrace Shiny or Costumed Pokémon. There could also be articles and surveys for these individually in future.

Prime 15 Rarest Pokémon

1. Frigibax, Arctibax & Baxcalibur

20.1% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Frigibax

10.2% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Arctibax

8.9% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Baxcalibur

  • Frigibax

  • Arctibax

  • Baxcalibur

Frigibax was solely just lately added as a particularly uncommon wild spawn in the course of the Paldea Extremely Unlock in September, so its first place spot on this record is comprehensible. After the occasion, it has develop into out there in 10km Eggs, within the fifth rarity tier, which can have presumably made them simpler receive. I anticipated loads lower than 20% for Frigibax, so there have to be plenty of fortunate folks or onerous grinders!

To evolve Frigibax into Arctibax requires 25 sweet, and evolving Arctibax into Baxcalibur requires 100 sweet. Reaching 125 sweet purely from wild catches and egg hatches in only a few weeks appears humanly inconceivable, so just below half of the Frigibax house owners have seemingly already used 100+ uncommon candies to evolve it utterly. Spectacular!

2. Volcarona 

15.3% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Volcarona

  • Volcarona

Volcarona is at the moment very tough to acquire resulting from its rarity in Eggs and its evolution necessities. Larvesta is on the market in 2km, 5km and 10km Eggs, nonetheless its hatch stage is Degree 5 (the toughest stage). Even if you're fortunate sufficient to hatch a Larvesta you continue to want 400 candies to evolve it, which is extraordinarily unlikely with hatches itself so Uncommon sweet and Buddy strolling sweet are wanted.

Volcarona is essentially the most just lately launched Pokémon on this record, in order time passes there can be extra trainers who hatch sufficient Larvesta or receive sufficient Uncommon Candies, making it much less uncommon. Given it's a 400 sweet evolution, it might be no shock to see Larvesta have its personal Group Day or featured occasion.

3. Gholdengo 

15.7% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Gholdengo

  • Gholdengo

Gholdengo is without doubt one of the most tough Pokémon to acquire within the sport. To start with, trainers should personal a replica of Pokémon Scarlet or Violet and a Nintendo Swap to get its pre-evolution, Gimmighoul. Then Postcards have to be despatched 5 days consecutively to get a Golden Lure Module, which is used to get Gimmighoul cash, which you want 999 of to evolve Gimmighoul.

If trainers organise Golden Lure Module meet-ups and all assist one another get the coin requirement it turns into comparatively straightforward. Nevertheless, as a result of most trainers don't have a robust sufficient area people or don't have the Swap video games themselves, Gholdengo is a really uncommon Pokémon.

4. Hawlucha

20.6% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Hawlucha

  • Hawlucha

Hawlucha is a Pokémon unique to the nation of Mexico. That being factored in with it being the 2nd most just lately launched Pokémon on this record (added March 1st, 2023) explains why it's so uncommon. Sooner or later I imagine Hawlucha may be very more likely to get a characteristic in a GO Fest or Safari Zone occasion, however for now it stays within the Prime 5 rarest!

5. Comfey 

21.1% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Comfey

  • Comfey

27.7% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Galarian Articuno

29.6% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Galarian Zapdos

27.7% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Galarian Moltres

  • Moltres (Galarian)

Galarin Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres are among the most wanted Pokémon within the sport. Their shock debut occured alongside the Day by day Journey Incense's addition in July 2022. Regardless of being out for over a 12 months, they're extraordinarily onerous to seek out and catch. The chance of 1 spawning on a Day by day Journey Incense may be very uncommon, and for those who do discover one they've a catch price of 0.3% and a flee price of 90%. Even with using Extremely Balls, Wonderful Throws and Golden Razz Berries, they had been extraordinarily onerous to catch for a very long time after their preliminary debut.

Nevertheless, the Grasp Ball was just lately added in Could 2022 and to this point trainers have had two probabilities to acquire one. With the Grasp Ball giving a assured catch, many trainers have used them on these uncommon Galarian Legendary Birds, making them loads much less uncommon over time.

7. Sigilyph 

29.8% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Sigilyph

  • Sigilyph

Sigilyph is unique to the international locations of Israel, Greece and Egypt.

Klefki, an odd Pokémon resembling keys, is just encounterable within the nation of France. It has been out there for two and a half years, since December 2nd, 2020, however few trainers have the chance to journey to France and catch one. Klefki has been out there for a number of years although, so it being featured in a GO Fest or Safari Zone occasion quickly is kind of seemingly.

9. Pawmot

33.4% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Pawmot

  • Pawmot

Like Frigibax, Pawmot turned out there a couple of weeks in the past in the course of the Paldea Extremely Unlock occasion in September 2023. Though Pawmi was extraordinarily widespread within the wild, evolving Pawmo (Pawmi's evolution) into Pawmot requires trainers to Stroll 25km whereas it's their buddy. Many trainers are but to finish this evolution requirement, which explains it present rarity, however as time goes on extra folks will full the duty Pawmot will now not be uncommon.

10. Keldeo

33.6% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Keldeo

  • Keldeo

Keldeo was launched in December 2022 as a part of the Mythic Blade, and was out there by means of a $7.99 USD ticket referred to as “One thing Extraordinary”.

This ticket was very frowned upon by the Pokemon GO Group and many individuals believed Keldeo's analysis didn't reside as much as the eight greenback price ticket. Many individuals didn't purchase the ticket, making Keldeo one of many Prime 10 rarest Pokémon in Pokémon GO.

11. Salazzle

35.5% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Salazzle

  • Salazzle

Salazzle debuted in April 2022 as a part of the All-Palms Rocket Retreat occasion. To be able to receive one, trainers should hatch a feminine Salandit from 12km Eggs and evolve it with 50 candies. Salandit has a 1/8 (12.5%) likelihood of being feminine which makes it very onerous to hatch the right gender to evolve it. Mixed with having to stroll 12km every time and that you could beat a Staff GO Rocket Chief to even get one egg within the first place simply makes it extraordinarily tough. Salazzle has been out there for a 12 months and a half now however the necessities to get one and have the right elements to be out there to evolve it causes it to be one of many video games rarest Pokémon. 

12. Maractus

37.6% of trainers who accomplished the survey have a Maractus

  • Bouffalant

Bouffalant was launched in August 2020 as a part of the Unova Week occasion, and was featured at Pokémon Worlds 2022 in London in analysis duties.

Nevertheless, it was solely out there in 1-Star Raids or in Discipline Analysis with the duty “Catch 25 Water‑kind Pokémon”. Because of the rarity of the duty and spending on raid passes being seen as pointless to many trainers, most individuals didn't catch a Sandygast. Even when they did, most didn't get 50 candies to evolve it into Palossand and could be required to used uncommon candies.

Nevertheless, its rarity will seemingly drop over the subsequent few months as it's out there as a featured spawn close to ‘Seashores & Water' in the course of the Season of Adventures Abound. Many trainers have just lately seen Sandygast has develop into out there as a uncommon Day by day Spawn so fortunate trainers might discover that shock too!
