Pokemon Go is still one of the best games of all time because of its augmented virtual reality. Pokemon lovers find it very fulfilling to be able to catch their own Pokemon.
But as the game progress, players manage to catch more and more Pokemon. With that, many hunger for more characters and are aiming to catch the rare ones like Snorlax and Lapras.
How To Determine If A Pokemon Is Rare?
Players always want to check the rarity of a Pokemon and one way to do it is by using the Global Nest Atlas. This is a map made by The Silph Road which shows Pokemon spawn points. This will give you a hint on which character is rare.
Apart from its rarity, the performance of the Pokemon during battles should also be considered before catching them. Not all rare Pokemon can be useful in gym battles.
Another good way to check if a Pokemon is rare is the handy chart from Reddit user RotomGuy. It shows which Pokemon is rare and which are common.
To get a rare Pokemon, one needs to level up, use the Buddy system, hatch more eggs and always check the available Pokemon nearby. Who knows, there might be a rare Pokemon near you.
Pokemon Go Best Catches
According to Mic Network, Snorlax and Lapras are the best catches. Both are the rarest and are the most effective during combat. A possible way to catch Snorlax and Lapras is by hatching 10km eggs.
Aside from the two, Dratini and Eevee are also best catches if you are looking for Pokemon that can evolve into tough fighters. Dratini evolves into Dragonite while Eevee could turn into Vaporeon.
Digital Spy mentioned that there are also continent-exclusive Pokemon like Mr. Mime which is only available in Europe, Tauros in North America, Farfetch’d in Japan, and Kangaskhan in Australia.
But the rarest ones are still missing in Pokemon Go. The most powerful Gen 1 Pokémon are Mew, Mewtwo and the three Legendary Birds- Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. These aren’t released in the game yet but if it happens, these will surely be the most sought after Pokemon.
