We now have a Location guide online for B2W2, which contains all the basic "wild encounters" in grass, double grass, surfing and fishing.

The guide doesn't have gift Pokemon, trades or 'interactable' Pokemon (e.g. legendaries), so I've opened this thread for anyone that wants to help out!

If you spot any Pokemon missing from the guide - in any game not just B2W2 - post it here. Make sure to include details:

  • the game it appears in
  • the Pokemon (and its form if appropriate)
  • the level(s) it appears at
  • the location (route or town name)
  • more exact location if appropriate e.g. the floor number or room in a cave (check the route in our guide to see if there are sub-routes listed)
  • any special conditions needed (e.g. items/Pokemon you need to have in your party, or in the case of in-game trades, the Pokemon you trade away)

I would like to simplify the guide in places as well. For example if you look at Twist Mountain some of the rows can be combined. Boldore is listed as appearing in Black in Spring, Summer and Autumn, then a separate row for Winter, then exactly the same again for White. That can be combined into one row: Boldore/B/W/all seasons/common/lvl 28-31. If you see any more when browsing the guide, let me know.

Do Hidden Hollow Pokemon count?
1) Pokewalker?
2) Safari Zone Pokemon?
@Miles07: (1) We already have a Pokewalker section, but I will probably fold that into the regular location guide soon; (2) Yes we need to add Safari Zone Pokemon, feel free to post any additions.
can the guides include roaming Pokemon?
If you'd like to simplify the tables, can we only have one table for Solaceon Ruins? The exact same Pokemon are in every room.
What about Mirage spot Pokemon?
You get Solgaleo from Lillie in Pokéomn Ultra-Sun on Mahalo Trail Lvl60 all I know. (sorry if this is kindof spam for you)
@SmartYoungsterLorika please post answers, not comments.

In Emerald, you also receive a Johto starter from Professor Birch, but only after catching every Pokemon on the Hoenn Pokedex. Also, I'm pretty sure the Camerupt and Sharpedo gifts are exclusive to OR and AS respectively.

I have decided to post all errors that I found into one post:
The page about Altering Cave says that Pokemon other than Zubat can be found there. They are unreleased events, and cannot be encountered without hacking.

In Platinum (I'm not sure about DP), Rotom can only be encountered at night.

(fixed) Rotom's encounter rate in the Old Chateau is limited, not common.

The page about Lake Verity has two identical tables.

In Mt. Coronet, Feebas can be encountered in B1F using any Rod. The levels and rarities for all Sinnoh games are 10-20 and limited.

The Fuchsia City page is missing information about the Pokemon located there in Crystal. Since there's only water there to house Pokemon, the Pokemon there should be the exact same as those in GS.

The route 119 and 120 pages are missing information on Kecleon found by interact.

(fixed) Every page still says, "Hint: Black/White 1 & 2 are Generation 5, other DS games are Gen 4." Please update this.

The Great Marsh page says that Drapion and Toxicroak are "pre-National Dex" when they should be "post-National Dex".

Roselia and Staravia can't be found in the Great Marsh in Platinum.

In DP, there's a Happiny and an Eevee in Hearthome City. Both are gifts that can only be received once. They're levels 1 and 5 respectively.
In Platinum (only, not DP) there's an Eevee in Hearthome city and a Porygon in Veilstone city. Both are gifts that can only be received once. they're levels 20 and 25 respectively.

There are many caves where the same wild Pokemon with the same encounter rates and level are found throughout the cave. These include the Artisan Cave in Hoenn and the Solaceon Ruins in Sinnoh. If all of the tables on the same page were reduced to one table, the page would load much faster.

The Solaceon Ruins have different Unown in different places so I've marked all these now. Merged Artisan Cave. Feel free to suggest any others.

In Sun/Moon and Ultra Sun/Moon you can get a Gabite by having a Pókemon call for help in the Haina Desert. In US/UM only you can get Golett through the same process, except it is much easier to find.

In the Dividing Peak Tunnel in US/UM, you can get a Wimpod.

You can find Goomy in Sun & Moon on Route 17 and in the Lush Jungle (when it's raining), yet the page says you have to trade/migrate it from another game. These locations are the same for the Ultra versions as well, though there may be more I don't know about since I haven't finished UM yet.
