Pokemon Go has just launched perhaps its most-awaited patch. However, it seems Niantic Labs has more plans for its fans. With more than 200 Pokemon out in the wild, just what should trainers catch? This Pokemon Go guide will help trainers catch the rarest creatures in the game.
The augmented reality (AR) mobile game has become an instant hit since its July 2016 launch. Fans and players all around the world have transformed into trainers to finally catch their favorite monsters in Pokemon Go. However, like in the original titles, the massive amount of creatures may overwhelm some new gamers. This Pokemon Go guide will help get them up to speed.
Interestingly, Pokemon Go affords a lot of opportunities to capture Pokemon anywhere. A lot of fans refer to the app as their go-to exercise program as, after all, walking is a primary mechanic in the game. With this in mind, this is the Pokemon Go guide for creatures to watch out for.
Pokemon Go: Gotta Catch ‘Em All!
This guide is courtesy of Silph Road, the official Subreddit of the Pokemon Go game. The community is filled with players dedicated to solve the various “mysteries” of the title. In fact, it was Redditors in Silph Road that discovered the code for various upcoming features before they were launched.
In this case, the community has released an updated list of Pokemon that can be hatched by eggs after the latest update. This increases the total Pokemon count to up to at least 200. However, players may need this handy guide to check just which creatures are the most common and the hardest to hatch.
Ultra-Rare Pokemon have hatch rates of 1/315. These include Grimer, Lickitung, Lapras, Porygon and Omanyte. Fan favorites such as Snorlax, Lapras and Wobbuffet are part of this list as well. However, it may be important to note that other Pokemon such as Aerodactyl, Girafarig, Misdreavus, Shuckle, Qwilfish, Sneasel, Skarmory and Miltank are also here.
Rare Pokemon have an increased hatch rate of 2/315. These include Pokemon such as Seel, Onix, Chansey and Tangela. Some stronger Pokemon such as Pinsir, Sudowoodo, Remoraid and Mareep are also here. It’s important to consider that the odds of hatching a Rare is just as hard as hatching Ultra-Rare Pokemon. In fact, one may catch these in the wild instead of eggs.
Meanwhile, this section of the guide focuses on Pokemon that are a bit easier to catch via eggs. According to WWG, “experts” from the Subreddit said that these lists may actually be the same list of common to super rare Pokemon in the game itself. This is because the labels “Ultra-Rare,” “Rare”, “Uncommon” and “Common” are just used as temporary classification for Pokemon depending on how hard they are to acquire via hatching.
It is also worth mentioning that Niantic Labs has not released an official “list” of common to super rare Pokemon for the game itself. However, it doesn’t mean all eggs lead to the same set of monsters. There are still Uncommon and Common creatures to be caught. Here are some of the most common Pokemon that appear via egg hatching.
Uncommon Pokemon have hatch rates of 4/315. These include starters Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander. Fan favorites such as Vulpix, Eevee and Cubone belong here as well. It can be noted that baby Pokemon such as Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff and Togepi are part of the list.
Common Pokemon have the highest hatch rates of 8/315. These include Ekans, Sandshrew, Zubat, Oddish, Paras, Meowth and Psyduck. Interestingly, these are Pokemon that are also fairly easy to find in the wild.
Players can get their hands on these new Pokemon by getting the game for free for the iOS and Android devices.
