Top 10 Rarest Pokemon in the game
And How To Catch Pokémon
Seeing who the top 10 rarest pokemon out of every pokemon game there take a little research and a lot of bubble media luckily I did that so you don’t have to and found for you all the 10 pokemon that can contest the title of the rarest pokemon in all of the pokemon.
It is true that some pokemon take additional difficult steps to obtain to encounter their overworld sprite and that even things like mystery gift events for special pokemon are discontinued but with both of those the pokemon is guaranteed to show up at the end and we’re focusing on what’s rare in the wild these 10 rare pokemon are not guaranteed to be found regardless of the method you use and will definitely make you a little frustrated with the number of encounters you’ll have to go through.
We’re going through every game to see which locations in which games have the toughest pokemon to find in a wild battle and what those exact chances are we won’t be including shiny pokemon or pokemon forms ” sorry antique forms dynasty and white flower full baby” but we might go into those in a future post if you’re all interested in that but today let’s find out who are the top 10 rarest pokemon to encounter in all of the pokemon games.
Here is the Top 10 Rarest Pokémon in the game:
#10: Chimecho ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
While it was very common to see this little guy in the anime with James having one on his party it was actually much harder to encounter a Chimecho during your playthrough of the original generation 3 games than to see it more than once in the anime, this is because Gimeko is only in one location in the entirety of Owen and with only a two percent chance to encounter it.

On the summit of mount pyre right at the top in the grass, the encounter rate was up to five percent in omega ruby and alpha sapphire with the same exact exclusive location to help out any trainers that might be giving up but Chimecho in the original generation 3 games managed to be one of the toughest pokemon to find even if you just had to walk through the grass.
#9: Dreepy ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
Dreepy is a pokemon that’s probably fresh on the minds of anyone who played sword and shield it’s probably also fresh in the minds of people who boycotted sword and shield because for some reason it seems like they happen to know a lot about this game without playing it nevertheless dripy manages to make it to number nine as its rate of encounter fluctuates between only 1 and 2% it might seem tied with chimecho.

As you can get at the same percent of encounter in the wild but to get that additional one percent added on to dreepy’s encounter rate you need to make sure the lake of outrage is going through a thunderstorm or is dealing with heavy fog this is easy to create through time manipulation but you’re still going to have to sift through the pokemon as it doesn’t go any higher than a two percent rate of encounter the added mechanic of weather does in street be slightly ahead of chimecho as chimecho will naturally be at 2% no matter what you are given the option to catch an overall dracklock in the wild to breed a dreepy which i recommend as is much easier but in terms of the rarity of encountering a pokemon in the wild over just owning one in the game dreepy edges it out just a bit as you’ll need to harness some weather bending to have a better yet still rare chance of finding one while walking through the grass.
#8: SAFARI ZONE ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
The safari zone is home to many pokemon we have struggled to catch from the step meter to choosing between rocks or bait before throwing a ball based on the rotations of the moon it’s been a memorable layout to be stuck in while trying to find the right pokemon, there are pokemon in the safari zone that has a one percent chance of encounter.
You can find ALL POKEMON Here
however, all of those one percent pokemon have a second location in the safari zone with a four percent encounter rate as well but even though that sounds pretty rare what if i told you in the original generation one game there are pokemon outside the safari zone that contains the rarest pokemon in all of the generation one that you can encounter.
The most difficult pokemon to find is actually a tie with gold duck and pokemon red and dojo and pokemon yellow gold duck and pokemon red can only be found in the seafoam islands on the first floor at a one percent chance of encountering, it the reason we’re matching pokemon red is that in pokemon blue gold luck has two locations a one percent chance on the bottom second floor and a four percent chance on the fourth bottom floor this makes the gold like in pokemon red and not blue the rarest pokemon to encounter with only one exclusive one percent location throughout the entire game.
along with that, however, comes dojo and pokemon yellow with the same rate of encounter dojo can only be found in a patch of grass on route 17 with an exclusive one percent chance this is the only location you can find a fully evolved dodger on this game and at such a rare chance of encountering it’ll take some time before you get to see one an even more interesting part is that there actually isn’t a pokemon to compete with gold duck and dojo in pokemon blue as although slobro is similar to gold duck specifically in the seafoam islands it’s actually obtainable in the wild in the cerulean cave and on route 23 at a 25% chance by fishing it up with the super rod.
i tried to find a pokemon for pokemon blue that’s exclusively one percent like a gold duck and dojo and the closest I could find is dugong and the seafoam islands but it also has a four percent chance in both red and blue so if you know which pokemon is supposed to fill this spot of exclusively being one percent in pokemon blue then let me know in the comments and I’ll give you a little reward like a little heart on your comment or something but for now number eight goes to pokemon red’s gold duck and pokemon yellows dodrio.
#7: Abomasnow ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
Snow while Abomasnow in generation 6 is also a pokemon you can only encounter at one percent in one location.
You can find POKEMON Here
but its location makes it a bit harder to encounter Abomasnow can only be found on calluses route 17 in the thick snow meaning you have to ride on your mammoth swine to walk through the snow for any encounters it’s a bit slower to plow through the snow on a mammoth swine to get a single encounter compared to just biking through the grass or caves and while it’s a very small change in encountering these pokemon it does make Abomasnow a bit harder to encounter as all of these pokemon still only have a one percent chance.
#6: Feebas ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
Feebas is a pokemon that will constantly be brought up as a contender for the rarest wild pokemon to run into however this section is for encountering a generation eight and not generation three in a generation.
You can find POKEMON Here
three fibas does have a requirement to be found on six fishing tiles in the route 119 lake however once you’ve found one of those tiles it’s easy to catch it is randomly generated and changes with time which adds to the difficulty but there aren’t too many tiles to look at and the tiles that have feedbacks in them actually have it officially labeled as a common pokemon to catch in generation 8 however catching in the wild requires you to fish on route 2 with only a 1 chance no matter what they did put more spots with slightly higher chances in the dlc but in terms of just the base game with a one percent chance of fishing and a two percent chance of spawning in max raid battles it would take longer to fish one out with the animation and encounters needed over walking through the snow on a slow mama swine even with all the prep you could do for max raid battles it is rather rare and difficult with these low chances at least i think so now i did say they gave you more spots to fish and surf with higher chances in the dlc but seeing as we’re separating versions getting a feedback in just the base games of sword and shield would be the hardest wild encounter for a fee bass out of any games if you did want those extra chances you’d have to buy the dlc and the dlc is sort of its own continuation game even if it’s added onto the base game.
#5: Dragonite ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
Dragonite it’s pretty rare to find a full blown fully evolved through the legendary third stage dragon in the wild and.

it’s no exception as Dragonite pushes the boundaries of what the one percent could be dragonite can be found in the wild in the fifth generation in pokemon black one and white one you can find in the dragon spiral tower at one percent what makes this rarer than the rest is the fact that you have to fish it out in rippling water there isn’t a set way to manipulate the rippling water to appear but you can surf with max repels or walk around the area until you see one and then fish in it to try and get yourself a dragonite this is another layer to the wedding cake of rarity that we have going on here as some of the last few pokemon have been exclusively one percent with dragonite joining them and then needing some rippling water to occur just to have that chance even come into play it is a nice indicator however seeing as you’ll know the spots to go to when they show up but the wait for the rippling water the fishing animation and making sure you reel in a dragonite without messing up adds more time to the rare pokemon speedrun split.
#4: Volcarona and Salamence ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
Volcarona and Salamence – pokemon sun and moon introduced sos battles ultrasound and ultra moon managed to use this mechanic to create some pokemon that might shock you when they were called into battle these two pokemon being salaments and volcarona the chances of each appearing are the same so while that might sound appealing it just means that they have an equally low low chance to obtain either of these pokemon in the wild you need to go to the area that contains their pre-evolutions larvesta can only be found in ultra sun and moon in the lush jungle with a one percent chance of encountering it and.
You can find POKEMON Here
bagon can be in two locations in these games on route 3 and calais bay it has a 10 chance of being encountered on cali bay but a zero percent chance of it calling for his elements so they’ll have to get the one on route 3 where its rarity is up to having a one percent chance due to these bagons being able to call for hell from a settlement now we bring you back to this where you might also be wondering what makes these one percent chance pokemon even rarer than the last and that’s because you need to proc multiple sos calls from either pokemon to get your volcarona or salamance to appear in the wild you can use your adrenaline orb and lower the health of the bagon or larvesta to make it more likely to appear but the fact that you have to encounter.
the pre-evolutions at such a rare chance to then have an uncommon chance of its fully evolved version showing up means that there’s a layer of chant on chance what’s also rare in a different sense about salamance and volcarona is that you can catch them at a level lower than what they fully evolve at this is only able to be done with very few pokemon and while it’s not rare in the sense of chance it’s rare to see pokemon like lance’s under level dragonite show up in the wild volcarona can be found from levels 41 to 44 and solomon’s can actually be found from levels 9 to 12 meaning you can get an elusive level 9 settlements in terms of chance solomons and volcarona are both the same but in terms of which is cooler a slightly under-leveled volcarona or a level 9 salamance then i’d have to give that trophy to solomons.
# 3: Hidden Grotto pokemon ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
Hidden Grotto pokemon – this part contains a number of pokemon from pokemon black 2 and white 2 as hidden grottos have managed to add another layer onto finding rare pokemon the pokemon that are exclusive to this method of catching.

have a one percent chance are granble in the grove on route 2 lombre in the grove on route 3 and murkrow in the grove and pinball forest they can only be exclusively found in hidden grottos in the generation 5 sequels madicham and haryama also have a one percent chance but it depends on the version of the game you have medi-cham has a 15 encounter rate in white two but a one percent chance in black too haryama has a 15 chance in black two and a one percent chance in white two Dragonite can also be found in hidden grottoes with a one percent chance but it can still be found in the rippling waters in these sequels as well so its rarity stays the same.
at number four hidden grottos make these exclusive one percent encounters a lot harder as you have a general five percent chance of having the grottos themselves regenerate after every 256 steps you take you can increase the five percent chance of encountering a pokemon with the hidden grotto pass power this method of finding a wild pokemon requires a significant amount of patience as to get
- maddie cham
- and hariyama
depending on the game you’ll have to keep checking after 256 steps to then only get a one percent chance of any of these pokemon showing up after the generally five percent chance of it regenerating as such these are some of the hardest pokemon to meet in the wild.
#2 Lostlorn Forest ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
One fun fact about the hidden grottos that no other game has is that they contain two pokemon that have a less than one percent chance with the same method.
You can find POKEMON Here
The hidden grottos in Los Loren forest can contain her across and pincer and depending on the game you have found them in the hidden grotto will always be less than one percent in black two haircuts has a 0.25 chance where pincer has a 0.75 percent chance however in the games where they have a 0.25 Grado chance you are able to find them in the grass of lost lord forest and route 12 with a 5 chance but in their counterpart games you’ll be forced to only encounter them in the hidden grottos with a 0.75 percent chance making pins for the rarest pokemon of pokemon black 2 and her across the rarest pokemon of pokemon white to but the other 1 from this method still deserves their spot.
#1 Munchlax ( Rarest Pokémon in the game )
Munchlax and generation 4 is the biggest pain to encounter in the wild of any game now there are ways to manipulate the game into making the chance higher but in our naive must have everything natural Herbalife sense much lax is the hardest.
You can find POKEMON Here
Rarest pokemon to encounter in the wild it can only be found on honey trees with a one percent chance there’s a nine percent chance for nothing showing up so you getting nothing is more common than getting a munchlax to even get a pokemon from a honey tree you would have to go buy honey find a tree slather said honey tree with honey wait six hours and then come back to check on it if anything even managed to show up if you forget about it and leave it unchecked for 24 hours both the honey and the pokemon will be gone changing the ds’s clock will also have no impact on the honey tree’s timer so at minimum you’ll be waiting six hours which is significantly more time than it takes to encounter and catch any of the previous pokemon on this list munchlax brings another challenge on top of that where only 4 out of the total 21 honey trees throughout cinno will be capable of drawing a munchlax this is calculated by your trainer id and secret id which chooses the four trees you can even get the rare chance on even more time is added on to encountering munchlax as getting to the trees with a fly animation is usually even longer than walking through grass for any other pokemon essentially this is a one percent chance with additional time consuming steps you can’t even get a snorlax anywhere to breed this little guy so to get your first snorlax you have to go through this method of catching a munchlax to evolve it into one this makes the generation iv munchlax the rarest possible pokemon to encounter in the wild and obtain out of all pokemon of any game at least out of pokemon that aren’t.
