Pokémon Go has been the hottest topic in the last couple of weeks and players from all over the world are assaulting the Internet with their dilemmas. The obvious question on everyone’s lips is where are the rest of the Pokémon Go Characters?
Everyone has a Pikachu, but what about a Mew? Reasons for this inequality of Pokémon distribution range from conspiracy theories to facts confirmed by Niantic. For example, the most powerful Pokémon will probably be released at special events, giving only to an elite the chance of capturing.
For other rare Pokémon, the answer is less obvious. This article will answer all your questions and offer a great source of information for where to find the 11 rarest Pokémon Go characters. We promise to include no cheat and to stick to the traditional way of catching those little monsters.
It’s not enough to want to catch them all. You need information, skills, and a healthy dose of good luck. Happy catching!
If you put this photo in the hands of a zoologist, he would describe this rare Pokemon as pink, bipedal creature, with mammalian features, which has a tail ending with an ovoid tip.
A less scientific approach would make us say that Mew is a cute gerbil-like being, which is currently wanted by all Pokémon Go players.
Scientist still argue whether this mythical Pokémon exists, and no claim of being captured appeared in the media till this day. Mew is unique because his DNA contains fragments from all other Pokémon, making it something like an ancestor.
Mew belongs to the first generation of Pokémon and it is expected to appear in Pokémon Go soon. In fact, anxious fans dug Niantic’s code and discovered clues that suggest this should happen quite soon.
Snorlax can be best described as one huge sleeping Chinese guy, although an approach derived from biology would make its identification easier.
With a huge belly that requires incredible amounts of food each day, this Pokémon contains an incredible amount of fat. Two colors dominate its body, a dark blue-green, and cream for the face and the belly.
Snorlax is one of the few Pokémon which are considerable hard to catch. Although apparently docile and sleepy, Snorlax has an incredible stamina and can easily withstand your efforts. Just like any other Pokémon, this one can be hatched from eggs, which are easy to obtain from Pokéstops.
However, you would have to walk 10 km to see it hatch, a big stretch for the casual Pokémon Go player.
Pokémon Go players are always excited when talks reach the area of rare and elusive creatures.
Moltres is a legendary Pokémon bird that has the ability to control fire and which thrives whenever dipping its body into hot magma or other substances. Colonel Sanders would twist in his grave knowing that there are birds who are not harmed by his hot KFC oil.
Reports of players seeing this rare Pokémon are summing up from all over the world. The official version states that the guys at Niantic did not release the legendary Pokémon yet.
The Pokédex contains 151 Pokémon, and some of them are indeed quite rare.
There is a growing concern that some Pokémon can be found only on some continents. Kangaskhan for example, has been caught only in Australia, although reports include sightings as far as New Zealand and South-East Asia.
Pokémon Go players would do anything to catch ‘em all, and buying a plane ticket to a remote place in the world falls into that category. There are reasons to believe guys at Niantic can soon develop a travel agency, getting fans closer to those little monsters.
A walkabout in the Australian outback might just get you that fabulous Kangaskhan.
Lapras is a water/ice Pokémon, which is somehow special in the game.
Not evolving into or from other Pokémon, Lapras is also a mythical creature. Just days ago, thousands of people gathered at the Santa Monica Pier in hopes of catching a Lapras.
Of course, the lazy man’s way of catching a Lapras is by hatching a 10 km egg. However, we recommend you to take some time to find one in the wild. The satisfaction of seeing a majestic Lapras in his natural aquatic environment is unique.
We warn you that living in an arid or desert area makes that impossible.
Along with Zapdos and Moltres, Articuno is one of the three Legendary birds of Kanto, the ones. Colored in shades of blue, this Ice and Flying Pokémon is one very hard to catch.
Articuno lives in cold, isolated locations, such as mountain peaks, although we are not sure how that information can help Pokémon Go hunters. This bird is also the mascot of Team Mystic, adopting the wisdom as its gameplay philosophy.
Like with any other rare Pokémon Go, there are players who claimed they caught one, although it is quite easy to counterfeit evidence
Conspiracy theories suggest a glitch in the system that brought the bird where it should not suppose to be, or users hacking the game to their advantage.
According to the creators of Pokémon Go, there are many Easter Eggs included, and that it is a bit early for the game to reveal all of its secrets.
Ditto is not a powerful little monster, yet players report a hard time finding it in real life. Different from other Pokémon in our list, Ditto is a normal-type.
The possible explanation behind this strange absence is that Ditto can transform, and therefore can appear like any other Pokémon in the game. Another theory suggests that Ditto is a Pokémon native to South America, a continent that still awaits the official release of the game.
It would fall in line with the rule that some of the Pokémon monsters are assigned exclusively to a continent. Beware of Zika if you plan to hunt there!
Zapdos is one legendary Pokémon that proves to be quite hard to find.
Having the ability to control electricity, its flight is known to cause thunderstorms and other atmospheric turbulence. Together with Articuno and Moltres, Zapdos forms the famous trio of birds from Kanto which resides at the top of the Pokémon trophic chain.
Again, we are talking about a lot of controversy governing this Pokémon’s presence in the game at this stage, and about presumed captures. With its catch rate having a very small value, it would usually take a skilled Poke Ball thrower to bag this one.
Aerodactyl is a dual-type Rock/Flying Fossil Pokémon that looks quite scary seen from close distance.
The monster is known to be able to evolve into a Mega Aerodactyl using the Aerodactylite Mega Stone. However, the Mega feature is not yet available in Pokémon Go, so you will have to settle for a normal one.
Like all the other Pokémon from the age of dinosaurs, it was resurrected by extracting genetic material from amber. The name has a clear source of inspiration and any Pokémon Go player should take some time to read about Pterodactyls. No Poke Ball could ever be big enough to catch one of those.
We don’t know the exact reasons, but it seems this Pokémon is harder to catch than others, and we are not talking legendary, mythical, or Mew here. Just one of the features that make the game more enjoyable.
When you are complaining about some Pokémon being impossible to find, you should consider your geographical location.
No, I am not talking about searching for water-type Pokémon near water bodies. For reasons which are not yet clear, the game creators decided to exile a few of the creatures in some continents alone.
Reports are very consistent in indicating that Tauros can be found only in North America, where he ranks as a common Pokémon. Being a normal-type Pokémon, Tauros lives in open areas like fields, deserts, and other landscapes that would create a perfect ambiance for a rodeo.
Its violent nature makes it hard to find a Tauros standing still, and chances are you will stumble upon one fighting a tree or an electricity pole. We advise caution.
Mewtwo is by far the strongest character in Pokémon Go and his introduction in the game would be the highlight of the year.
A short preview of how a fight against Mewtwo would look like is given in the official trailer of the game. Thousands of people are gathered in Times Squares, as their efforts are united to defeat this villain Pokémon.
According to the story, Mewtwo is a genetic experiment that took Mew to a whole new level, making it stronger, smarter, and almost impossible to capture. His humanoid figure suggests that this Pokémon plays a vital role in the franchise.
