What pokémon are rare?

4 votes

Factually speaking, and not including the legendary ones.
One good example of the rarest pokémon I've ever known is Milotic.
So, is there any other pokémon that has to be trained or encountered by an odd way?
This could be useful for people who want to get good pokémon at the GTS.

Pokémon rarity is changed by version you´re playing. Eg, in Diamond, Palkia is much rarer than Dialga. In Pearl, it´s reversed. In Diamond, rare is Shieldon. In Pearl Cranidos. In HeartGold, Ekans is rare (but may be gained at Safari Zone). In SoulSilver it´s Sanshrew. But you are right that some Pokémon have same (or almost same) rarity in all games. Those are eg. Milotic, Honchrow, Mismagius, Gallade, Froslass... In I and II gen and Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald it were Pokémon evolving by stones. And some evolving by trading. And, until IV gen, fossil - Pokémon were rare. But I think, that Pokémon evolving by trading are less rare in IV gen than they used to be. In Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, fossil Pokémon aren´t so rare.

A really rare one is Zangoose.  You can only get it in Ruby.
Ruby, XD, D/P/Pt while Ruby inserted and Safari Zone in HG/SS.

well it mainly depends on what version you're playing, but for me, pokemon which are considered rare is eevee i know it's easy to get it from a person but if you want to have all eevelutions it's actually kinda hard but i got it all,for pearl you can get a rare bagon but can't get a rare larvitar, on the other hand in diamond you can get a larvitar but can't get a bagon i think, you see it all depends on your game,yes you're right about milotic but i have one know but it took so long to catch it fishing in every square of that lake
