Pokemon GO Rarest Pokemon

Pokemon GO has now been a well-established game for several years and in order to reach this status, the developers have always updated the game by adding new Pokemon and events to participate in. To date, there are many Pokemons present in the game, but not all of them are easy to catch. In fact, some of them will be difficult to add to your Pokedex.

In this article, therefore, we will tell you which Pokemon GO rarest Pokemon you can encounter during your adventure as trainers.

PS: this list is constantly updated and takes new additions into account.

Pokemon GO Rarest Pokemon

Being a Pokemon trainer is one of every child's biggest dreams and Pokemon GO, like other games in the series, has managed to capture this very essence. However, it is certainly not an easy job. Not all Pokemon will be easy to catch, some will require considerable effort. But which Pokemon are these? Let's find out together.

Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres

These Pokemon are not at all easy to catch. The first thing you need to know is that you only have a chance of encountering them when you use your Daily Adventure Incense. This means that you only have 15 minutes available per day to catch them. However, their spawn rate is very low and their flee rate is very high. These two characteristics mean that these are some of the rarest Pokemon to obtain in Pokemon GO.

Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf

Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf are the only three legendary Pokemon that can be found in the wild, but that doesn't mean it's easy. In fact, their spawn rate is very low and is also linked to the region you are in. Uxie is available only in Asia, Mesprit in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India, and Azelf in America.

Larvesta and Volcarona

Larvesta can be obtained from 2km, 5km, and 10km eggs; however, it is one of the most difficult Pokemon that appears, so it is not that easy to obtain. Furthermore, even if you are able to obtain Larvesta, in order to evolve it and add Volcarona to your Pokedex, you will need 400 candies. Since Larvesta is not easy to find, it will therefore not be easy to get that amount of candy.

Frigibax, Arctibax, and Baxcalibur

Frigibax (and its evolutions) is another of the rarest Pokemon to obtain in Pokemon GO. Although it is possible to find it in the wild, its spawn rate is very low. The best alternative is to hatch 12km eggs, but even then it doesn't have a very high spawn rate. Furthermore, to perform its evolutions, you will need 125 candies, so it will take some time before you can add all three forms to your Pokedex.

Wiglett and Wugtrio

Wiglett is a Pokemon that can only be obtained in beach biomes, which means that if you don't live near a beach, you won't be able to catch it and to make matters worse, it also has a very low spawn rate. Consequently, for these reasons, its evolution is also not easy to obtain since you will need 50 candies.

Charcadet, Armarouge, and Ceruledge

Here we find ourselves faced with a Pokemon that can be evolved into two different forms based on specific requirements. So, the first step is to capture two Charcadets, which, however, is not easy to do. This Pokemon can be found as a reward within the 10km eggs, so you will have to be prepared to walk for a long time. Once you've found two specimens, it's time to decide which version to evolve them into. To get Armarouge, you will need to have 50 candies and have defeated 30 psychic-type Pokemon with Charcadet; To get Ceruledge, you will need to have 50 candies and have defeated 30 ghost-type Pokemon with Charcadet.

Noibat and Noivern

Noibat is a Pokemon that can be found in the wild, although its spawn rate is very low. As if that wasn't enough, in order to obtain his evolution, you will need to be in possession of 400 candies. As a result, adding these two Pokemon to your Pokedex will be a very time-consuming mission.

Yamask, Cofagrigus, Galarian Yamask, and Runerigus

Yamask (and consequently all its evolutions) is only available during the Halloween period. As a result, you cannot get this Pokemon whenever you want. Luckily for you, during the scariest holiday of the year, this Pokemon is quite easy to find, so we advise you to capture as many as possible in order to obtain the various evolutions.

Pikachu Libre

If you are interested in obtaining this Pokemon, prepare for a real odyssey. In fact, you will have to reach level 24 in the Pokemon GO Battle League in just one season. This is certainly not a mission suitable for everyone.


Although there are several ways to obtain this Pokemon, its spawn rate is decidedly low, and there are many variations. For this reason, you will have to be very lucky if you want to add this Pokemon to your Pokedex.

Obtaining Zygarde in itself is not difficult (you can do it simply by completing Research Tasks), however, the difficult thing is obtaining its final form. In fact, once you have obtained Zygarde, in order to reach 100% of its form, you will need 250 Zygarde cells. These cells, however, can only be obtained by completing player-created courses. So arm yourself with patience and expect to have to walk a long time to get this Pokemon.

Keldeo, Zarude, and Hoopa

Keldeo, Zarude, and Hoopa are part of the Mythical Pokemon and, as such, are not at all easy to obtain. They cannot be traded and the only way to obtain them is to complete the Special Research quests. However, at the time of writing, there are no quests that allow you to obtain them, so there is no way to add them to your Pokedex.

Armored Mewtwo

This variant of Mewtwo was only available during two events in 2019 and 2020. This means that it is not possible to obtain this Pokemon except through trading with some other player.


This Pokemon could only be obtained if you logged into the game in 2021 during a dedicated event and were able to start the Special Research Story. If this were not the case, there is now no way to obtain it.
