Built for mobile phones, Pokémon Go uses augmented reality features to give players the feeling that the creatures really do walk among them.
The definition of rare Pokémon is different. So, one list of rare Pokémon from one area may not necessarily be considered rare in another area.
Keep in mind however, that the higher your trainer Level, the more likely you are to come across the rarest of Pokémon.
Some examples of rare Pokémon include:
Charizard, Ditto, Omastar, Charmeleon, Dragonair, Muk, Vaporeon, Machamo, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Blastoise, Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Vileplume, Poliwrath, Alakazam, Weepinbell, Victreebell, Slowbro, Marowak, Lickitung and others.
Rare Pokémon are generally not so easy to find, leaving some people wondering if they even exist at all. There are a number of tricks you can do to catch these Pokémon.
Tips for catching rare Pokémon:
First understand where you should be looking for rare Pokémon.
So called nests spawn rare Pokémon over and over again in some areas.
Keep exploring public spaces.
Pay attention to eggs that you collect from Pokestops, as some of them could have rare Pokémon inside of them.
Large urban areas will yield certain results, whilst smaller ones will hold certain rare Pokémon too.
In Niantic’s last game, Ingress, areas highlighted as having relatively high cell activity are also areas where you’ll be able to find more groups of rare, powerful Pokémon.
Use incense and lures to get rare Pokémon. You should also hatch eggs.
Keep an eye on the nearby Pokémon tab in the bottom right hand corner of your screen. This will alert you to rare Pokémon you have an opportunity of catching.
Use Pokémon Go tracker apps. These apps offer a simple way to catch rare Pokémon, saving you a lot of time in the process.
