And make sure to actually look things up before you answer.

And I need a for sure answer, not people guessing. That includes people of other sites guessing.

If you are not sure what the question is talking about or if you are not 100% sure your answer is correct, DO NOT ANSWER

One word: Hackers. That's probably how we'll find the answer to this question.
I think the weaker ones are easier to find, as in more common, not just available sooner.
@starmarx39: I agree. I found N's Joltik, Ferroseed, and Klink, at an average time of ten to fifteen minutes between each encounter, but then it took me about half an hour and maybe even LONGER to find N's Boldore, so... either I have really bad luck, or that your theory might be correct.
:/
If you have a strong guess or theory, comment it, but don't answer. If its wrong, don't post anything.
I have a friend whose uncle took us to game freak before to demo black and white 2 maybe I should ask him to take me there again to ask this question

It is a random generator the Pokemon can have a 1-5% to appear for example purrloin can have a 3% chance to appear while boldore can have a 1% chance to appear. It is random for every game though so darmanitan could have a 5% chance in your game but 1% in someone else's game.

Source: My friend's uncle took us to gamefreak studios(nintendo america) and I got the privilege to ask a person that works on wild Pokemon this question.

(AND IT WAS AWESOME :D)

Woah.
Dang. Finally, a legit answer.
Nice, TechnoBlast.
And I think you meant Random Generator.
You deserve an up vote bro!
AWESOME/FINALLY/ABOUT TIME! :D I FLING DA UPVOTE!
I'll also add this to Bulbapedia later.
OOOOOOOOHHHHHHH YYYYYYEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!
THIS guy deserves BA.
you went to GameFreak Studios????
Amazing!!!
I wish I was there!
Awesome friend with an AWESOME Uncle!! :DD
Good for you!
Finally, no more guesses. You need to introduce me to this friend's uncle sometime.

It says the only studio is in Japan...
LMFAO. HE'S LYING MEHEHEHEH. xD
No I'm not :(
Then how did you talk to the guy?
There is an American game freak place thing not the actual game freak but almost like
I was actually in Nintendo america
Which had a game freak place
I am doubtful.
Until I recieve cconfirmation, this will not recieve best answer.
Thats fine
Nintendo America does have several buildings round the country, but I've found no records of a Game Freak place.
Fail answer:P
So technically an answer with 14 votes does not resolve a question? roflolmao!
Oh my gosh did you seriously go to Game Freak. That is totally epic i wanna go super badly like all you guys i am a total pokemon fanatic so it'd be an honor to meet one of the people that actually helps make the game!!!!!!!!!!
*Huff-Puff* Wow.  I spoke a lot right there.
Spaces ._. use them next time
I don't really think he went, because there is no Game Freak offices in Nintendo America buildings..
Lol so did he lie to us T-T?
Look at the upvotes he got. Even I would've lied for that xD
Well maybe he didn't lie? There could be a Game Freak place in America. I'm still searching, but the answer looks legit.

I really don't want this to be permanatly in the unanswered page. A threat to hide it? :/
hahaha it IS a legit question..
Looks can be decieving. I can answer:

The probability of finding one of N's Pokemon is (p-b^r), where p=number of Pokemon of the same species you have caught, b=8-number of badges you have, and r=the rarity of the Pokemon in that area. This number cannot exceed 40%.

Source: I asked Game Freak.
really?? oh no wait u're pulling our legs. still, IS it true?
I'm still sure this is a fake answer.
trachy that is completely wrong. I had never caught a Klink before, so p would be 0, and I had 8 badges, so b would be 0,  ergo b^r regardless of what r is would also be 0, indicating that my chances of finding N's Klink would be 0. Yet, I found N's Klink. So sorry, but you either didn't ask Game Freak OR someone at Game Freak really didn't know what they were talking about.
That equation is wrong; trachy was just quoting it to show how answers can be deceptive in their trustworthiness.
