Hardest Pokemon to Find
The Top Ten
I have one in Let's Go, but that is just because of my Poke Ball Plus.
This shouldn't have even existed, it was secretly added at the last minute.
I can see why they made Mew extremely rare. If we could get a Mew in the wild, Pokemon would be about the easiest game to finish. I know Mewcan learn any move but I still don't know how that beats a Pokemon that can be any type. - Lickytung
You can only get him In red for the game boy in a event in Japan
I'm pretty sure that Arceus is the hardest to find. Is there even any way to still get him? Because I want one! Also by the way Mew is very easy to find. There is a very easy to perform mew glitch as well as mew being the number one most released Pokemon by special event. He was very infamous in gen 1, but he is quite common nowadays.
I believe that Arceus is the most rare Pokemon because you can not get it usually in any game except for Pokemon Conquest but that was a bad game anyway and you only get to battle with it once. - Lickytung
I can’t see one ever in the wild... This beats mew. I want a stronger hack game I need it.
You just use cheat codes but in light platinum (hack version) its easy to catch by using timer ball...
Any one who actually plays Pokemon knows how hard it is to get since you can only catch it on 5 tiles of a massive lake and requires you to fish Legendaries shouldn't even count because of course they are hard to find there is only one of them and most of them you needed to go to a Japanese event to get them
Anyone who has ever had a Milotic knows how worth it it is to find this elusive and ugly fish. In the Emerald/Ruby/Sapphire games they were only on 2/600something toles on one river. This is a legitimately difficult pokemon to get.
Yes, Feebas is the most annoying Pokemon to find. When I played Emerald I find out that you can catch it like a year later and it take me a lot of time to find. And the worst part is that it's a horrible Pokemon! Unless you evolve it of course, but the evolution of Feebas is another annoying part. Legendaries doesn't count.
Near impossible to find gen 4. Deserve 1st more than mew and arceus.
In many Pokemon games you are given an Eevee egg. Then you can breed them with Dittos for infinite Eevee's so, its not that hard to find.
You know what's even harder to find? A FEMALE Eevee. - Staruli
I got Eevee on my first night of playing it
Eevee is hard to find in the wild.
Very rare legendary. Two of the games I have are remakes. Celebi isn't available in Sword and Shield, which is the only non-remake game I have.
Celebi is a Pokemon that I still can't find out about. People say that you can find it in certain places of different games but I have done everything to get one and I can't. I can get one using my hack but that causes bad eggs. - Lickytung
I have always wanted one for my grovyle... Ha Mystery dungeon lol sorry... anyway it sucks because it's adorable and powerful which I love, bit none of my games have it
From all the pokemon here, celebi is the only pokemon that I still didn't know where to find it. Even in pokemon hack I couldn't find him
You find him in every cave in most games
Um... you find it in every cave
He will haunt your dreams
I have never even seen one of these things in the wild
Once I found one in pokemon go I cried when it ran away.
Rock smash in Dewford Cave
That Pokemon is pretty much the easiest to find in Pokemon black 2
Magneton is easy to get - koopatroopaandgoomba4ever
It is easy to get.
Very hard to find in grassland.but you
Can catch in zados thetory
There are so many videos on YouTube that show you how to get a Darkrai but almost all of them are videos that they edited. One shows you that you can get a Darkrai but it involves walking millions of steps into complete black. I am pretty sure that you don't have to waist about 2 hours of your Tim doing that - Lickytung
You can walk those steps to get darkrai but you cannot transfer that darkrai to black/white
This has had a few events, but that's it.
Mewtwo isn't that rare because in most games you can obtain him at the end or near the end of the game usually using a master ball
Mewtwo I do not find as rare because you can find it in a couple games just like that. You can easily find it in X and Y and its easy to get it in Heart Gold and Soul Silver. - Lickytung
IT IS THE BEST POKEMON EVER!
In heartgold, there was a cave path to safari zone (i think it was there, or some other cave, I don't know, its been ages). anyway, I found like 5 dunsparce there its not that hard 2 find
Well you were just lucky to find that many as it is only a 1% encounter rate - Pikachu7586
It has sparce in the name 1% chance in every game I think correct me if I'm wrong.it's based off of a tisuchinoko a 10,000.000 us dollar fat jumpy rare snake and it makes sense.
It is only available through hacks and only a few people have them, it has not been revealed in any events so far and is unobtainable without a power save or something.
It has only just been revealed and there has been no event yet.
This is only available from hacks and an obscure Japanease event (yet). It will soon be much more common, but at the moment, it's the rarest Pokemon in existance.
A PAIN in x and y
Phanpy is kinda hard to find...
That's a shiny
I personnaly think their hard to find
What even is this they are everyhwere
I'VE GOT ABOUT 7 (WHY ON THE LIST? )
I have a skarmory...
In ORAS it's complicated u have to solve sealed chamber puzzle then go to the route with the scorched slab then head to the ancient tomb then use fly in the middle of the room then the door will open registeel is in that room
Usually you can find it in special places but in black and white you have to have both to get all three. - Lickytung
Correct! It is really really really really hard to find it
Registeel Doesn't Even Evolve
I encountered like 4 in white
In Oras you have to first get X orY and then transfer it will anyoing to do that. Someone traded me her for a Ralts.Quite funny in my opinion.😆
It's mad hard to catch to. I know why you put it on here lol.
In Gen 1 you can only get Tauros through the safari zone in one specific area of the Safrai zone unlike Chansey who can be found in Ceurlan Cave. In Gen 2 it was easier to catch. However in Gen 3 you have to go through the Safari Zone and catch it agian. Gen 4 onward it is now easy to catch
False why is this on the list
This is an easy find!
He's is a big fella I can't find this beast
! % chances in Ruby
There is so much illumise! I can't even find this thing!
Is this even a Pokémon?
It's an event...
There are lots of shadow Pokemon people describe but they all pretty much don't exist. - Lickytung
They are exclusive to one game, why are they on here.
Shadow Pokémon is Kind of vague. :/
Combee is hard enough, now finding a female combee is simply imposible
Especially if your using your newly caught caterpie. :3
It's hard to get pidgeot - koopatroopaandgoomba4ever
Pidgeot has a chance of 1% to appear in Viridian Forest of Pokémon Yellow.
Why is this not #1 they are not only impossibly hard to find they are also equally difficult to catch.
Pikachu is similar to Katsuma
I literally used 68 poke balls and I still haven't caught it
It took me 69 poke balls to catch it. I think that's lucky
Took me 13 ultra balls...
Same as last one - Lickytung
Really? Ralts!?!? That Pokemon is so easy to find in every game! You must've been pretty unlucky to not find Ralts I suppose.
Very difficult to find in the game it was originally released in (Emerald/Ruby/Sapphire)
I caught a Ralts in Pokemon Sapphire! - beatles5
Ralts is in RSE and ORAS. Literally like the second route. Not hard to obtain AT ALL.
Holy crap I tried at least 3 different times and probably used at least 100 total balls and still didn't catch this. Not hard to find but a pain in the neck to catch.
Regirock is so easy in ORAS just solve sealed chamber then go to desert ruins and at the middle front of the room use dig the door will open
Come on now guys. Manaphy was only ever able to find in a one-time event back in diamond, pearl, and platinum. At least Arceus is in multiple events, but manaphy was only in one.
Manaphy and Phione are butts to get... you need a NEW copy of the first Pokemon Rangers game. which is next to impossible to find now a days... just to get started on these two
This would be extremely hard to get for me, but I got one from a wonder trade.
Does he even exist anymore? He is so hard to find. I think he is only in one game
Just go to space in ORAS
1 event in 2005 to get deoxys
This Pokémon is so hard to find. Also it has fights with one of the best pokemon
To even fight him, you must find the three Regis, which already takes up way too much time.
Why people don't vote this this is at least 10
Pain, but not too hard.
Have all three, Regice, Regirock, and Registeel with you and go to a certain place (because in each game its a little different) and wake Regigas. - Lickytung
Had to go to a mirage spot In ORAS
This is the hardest Pokemon to catch MAGIKARP
Wasted 100 ultra balls on a single shiny 'carp didn't catch it
Magikarp is too mlg to be found.
Still trying to this day I even needed to hack in master balls 999 of them but wouldn’t stay in...
So hard to find, what makes it worse is how your rival sends it out on a double battle against team galactic and you have to go out of your way to kill it because it does absolutely nothing besides stockpile...
In diamond pearl and platinum you have a 1% chance of finding it at four random trees which you have to wait 6 hours to find out if it even appeared
In its Diamond and Pearl debut, Munclax earned the title of the hardest Pokémon to obtain. Period. In my opinion anyway. In these games there was a feature where you could slather honey on a tree (there were about twenty of these trees in Sinnoh), check back after six hours, then find a Pokémon. Four of those honey trees were known as "Munchlax Trees." Which ones? It's completely random. Or, more accurately, it's determined by your Trainer ID and invisible Secret ID with some complex equation I'm not really familiar with. Anyway, even if you manage to figure out which trees are Munchlax trees, Munchlax only has a 1% encounter rate. That is just mean. A 1% chance of every few steps is one thing, a 1% chance every few hours is completely different. This means that if you lather honey on a random tree in the region, the odds of finding a Munchlax are less than.2%. Every six hours... Also it knows Metronome and might explode in your face. Good luck.
Yeah, I got him but only because I got him at the ONE event they gave him to people
EVENT. enough SAID.
I have one
Pinsir is a pain to find, and to catch in safari park in RSE (just like Heracross)
I caught one in Antgua
I've Spent A Whole Year Trying To Evolve Seadra But It Still Hasn't Evolved!
This Pokemon is almost impossible to catch without a master ball tried but I ended up using the master ball
Come on now you guys admit mesprit was a bitch to catch, it flew all around sinnoh and you needed mean look to keep it from fleeing!
Just go to nameless cavern...
Mesprit used teleport.
