Pokemon GO: Pokemon Rarity chart compares the common with the rare


In Pokemon GO certain Pokemon tend to be pop up more commonly than others. There is no confirmed rarity tier in the game like the mainline Pokemon games as far as we know as different Pokemon show up in different areas. This rarity chart however compares which Pokemon you’re more likely to come across in an average playthrough.

The Pokemon GO Rarity chart was created by Redditor r/RotomGuy who sorted the Pokemon available ranging from them being available virtually everywhere to mythical once in a blue moon sightings. The chart is missing Duduo but that should fall in the virtually everywhere category as per my experience.

Do note that the chart is not 100% accurate as everybody’s experience is different due to their location but it should be close.

  • Mike Sharpe

    I’ve only been playing 3 days and have snorlax, dratini, staryu, chamander, squirtle, bulbasuar, machop, pinsar, lickitung, venomoth, koffing, voltorb, golduck, growlithe and a few other so called rare, are these really considered to be hard to find ones? Wonder why their popping up around me so much lol

  • Benjamín Joel Fleet

    Pinsir would but my biggest disagreement here. Maybe it’s regional, but Pinsir is as common as Poliwag or Krabby.

  • Natte

    I got the green one who is listed as specialy, insantly in my bedroom rofl.

    • Amishu

      …thats because it’s one of the starter ones… you can it when you start the game, and “it” is a bulbasaur, how can you not know something so popular??

      • Natte

        well to be honest, I just downloaded the game, have no real idea about pokemon at all hehe, but now been playing some and it is quite intresting :p

  • Thezachoftoday

    Where is diglett on the chart, I got him but I don’t know what rarity he is

    • Common.

    • MrMinish

      I never saw anyone getting him atm so I think he’s around rare.

  • Stacey Treu

    I’m from South Africa and Geodude, Rhyhorn etc are everywhere. Some of the Pokemon on your common lists I’ve not yet seen.

  • Michael Nolan

    Diglett isn’t on this list, and I have one.

  • Tapsa

    Had a small walk outside the urban area and got Aerodactyl, it was yellow difficulty to catch. Also, Rhyhorns are regularly spawning to my bedroom. Likitung appeared just outside of my workplace, it was red difficulty, escaped ball instantly and then ran away. I have not seen one since.

  • dylangiantsfan

    voltorb and magnemite show up down my street every day so I dont know how thats very rare or epic.

  • FazoolGAMING

    I’m currently playing in the Middle East. Can I get a regional pokemon?

    • Thezachoftoday

      The regional Pokemon is a myth you can actually catch them all where ever you are, seriously it’s not regional exclusive

  • Zarphus Aran

    this list is a joke. i know people in the US who have seen kangaskhan, it’s also missing some (Mankey, doduo, diglett, seel, maybe more.) and i have caught 24 hitmonlees, seen 30+. far more than even most of the “very common”

    • Benjamín Joel Fleet

      I’ve never seen a Hitmonlee, but have caught many Hitmonchans.

  • Melissa Smith

    I have, according to that chart, a Special one Bulbasaur. He was in my living room lol.
