Sure the frequency of each Pokemon in Pokemon GO, is more or less based on the frequency they used to have in the original Pokemon games, but some cases are different. Sometimes, it might happen for gameplay purposes, but that’s not always the case.
The ones that are more common in Pokemon GO...
Not THAT common in Pokemon GO games, but not the unique Pokemon it used to be back in the day.
There was a time, when you found an Electabuzz or a Magmar out in the wild, you were like OOOOH!!! But now you are like “meh”. There are even Electabuzz and Magmar nests out there!
A Pokemon that normally appeared only in the nighttime, now appears in the Daytime too. And not only that, it’s among the Top Ten of the second Generation, when it used to be fairly uncommon.
Another uncommon Pokemon appearing only during the nighttime. Now more common and also available during the daytime!
One of the least memorable Pokemon of the second Generation, is currently being among the Top Ten Pokemon found in the wild!
Back in old games, those Pokemon were unique. But there are certain areas where those Pokemon are very common! Who would thought about it?
A very popular Pokemon in the cities. Unfairly popular though, because it’s among the strongest Pokemon when it evolves into a Rhyhorn! Used to be less common back then.
Just remind me, how common Slugma was in original Pokemon games? But, look at it now!
It wasn’t the rarest Pokemon for sure, but now it’s even more common than Pidgey, Sentret and Rattata. I’m not kidding.
They are not common in Pokemon GO, but not unique anymore. Of course this happened for gameplay reasons.
And the ones that are less common...
It was never a common Pokemon, but Grimer has been stated as the most difficult Pokemon to be found. Even harder than Snorlax or Lapras and such.
Not much like its “friend” Grimer, but it’s one of the rarest Pokemon to be found in Pokemon GO. Even rarer than the likes of Dratini or Larvitar.
Well, currently there is an event going on, so they are more common now. But in general, Magikarp are only fairly common in waterside areas. In cities they are really rare. In old Pokemon Games, if you used an Old Rod, then it was 100% sure that you’d get a Magikarp!
Can you believe that Mareep are being hatched from…10 km eggs? Personally not. To be as rare as Chansey, Snorlax or Sudowoodo? What Pokemon Go creators are up to?
Why Ice Pokemon should be so rare in Pokemon GO…hmph. One of the toughest Pokemon to be found in the wild, no matter where you live.
