As the Pokémon Go craze sweeps the world many of you have been left wondering how to find rare Pokémon (and stop spending your days catching Rattatas). We’ve put together a pictorial guide of all 151 Pokémon, what each one evolves into and details of where you can find the rarest of the bunch. Our guide to every Pokémon will help you catch ’em all in no time at all.
Bulbasaur – #001
One of the three original Pokémon monsters (alongside Charmander and Squirtle). You can find these all over the place – one of your base Pokémon catches.
Where you can find them: Literally, everywhere.
A grass type that’s an evolution of Bulbasaur. Can be costly to evolve when you manage to catch it though.
Where you can find them: Think grassy areas – so parks, woods, open fields.
Venusaur – #003
The final form of a Bulbasaur but far harder to catch. You can evolve your Ivysaur of course, but it’s much sweeter catching it yourself.
Where you can find them: More grassy areas, but fans have reported finding them in obscure parks, so think outside the box.
Charmander – #004
This little dude is a Pokémon legend and one of the original starter catches. First appeared in the video game Pokémon Red but now a bonafide legend in its own right.
Where you can find them: As above, these are everywhere and one of your first catches.
Charmeleon – #005
The second phase of a Charmander and if you take this one to a battle, Blaze is its prefer method of attack.
Where you can find them: Being classified as a fire-type, you’ll need to think warm places. The beach for example.
Charizard – #006
The big daddy of this fire lineage, evolving from Charmeleon. If you somehow see this one in the wild, it will put up a fight – so come prepared.
Where you can find them: These can pop up in most places in populated areas, but if you wander in the desert you might have some luck there.
Squirtle – #007
The last of the starter Pokémon this one, so a fairly easy catch that you can keep evolving with a bit of investment.
Where you can find them: A starter Pokémon, so you’ll see these all over the place.
Wartortle – #008
The second stage of the water beast, evolving from Squirtle. Valuable in battles if you can use the Torrent move.
Where you can find them: By water is your best bet – streams, rivers, etc.
The final form of the Squirtle. A slow mover that tends to use force rather than speed to beat other Pokémon.
Where you can find them: Water again, but particularly by the sea or lakes.
Caterpie – #010
A common bug-type this one, if you’re in marshy countries like the UK – they’ll pop up all day.
Where you can find them: Common as muck these, but they’ll also be found by lakes and watery locations.
Metapod – #011
If you get your Caterpie to level 7 it’ll start evolving into a Metapod. Surprisingly hard to catch in the wild, with a catch rate of 15.7%.
Where you can find them: Check out local ponds, and even the smallest streams.
Butterfree – #012
The final form of your Caterpie and Metapod. If you’re breeding it via an egg, you’ll need to walk between 2800 – 3100 steps to crack open this bad boy.
Where you can find them: Found sparsely, but if you’re lucky your local garden centre or even back garden might be worth a look.
Weedle – #013
Weedle is a bug type that may not look like much – but when using its favourite abilities like Dust Shield and, er, Run Away, it can be handy in a battle.
Where you can find them: Bug types are found in woodland areas and by the water, so start in the forest and work out from there.
Kakuna – #014
It looks menacing, but Kakuna in fact specialises in defence, so if you’re taking a beating in a battle this creature might be a good call.
Where you can find them: Can be quite rare, but your local park’s bushes or woods will be your best bet.
Beedrill – #015
After it evolves from a Kakuna, this one turns into a lethal weapon that specialises in using its Stinger. It’ll also turn into Mega Beedrill if you manage to apply beedrillite.
Where you can find them: Surprisingly, this one can pop up anywhere – including your house. Make sure you’re stocked up on Pokéballs then!
Pidgey – #016
A tiny bird breed that looks innocent, but are devilishly difficult to evolve at points. You’ll have to work it up to level 18 to send it to the next phase.
Where you can find them: Have been known to pop up just about everywhere, even in your Uber home after a night out.
Pidgeotto – #017
A quick bird that evolves from a Pidgey but will win battles for you using speed alone. A strong one to have in your collection.
Where you can find them: Open spaces are the favoured positions for these. Probably have to leave the house for this one.
Pidgeot – #018
The final phase of the Pidgey and Pidgeotto line is hard to catch but definitely worth it. Employ its hidden ability of Pecks to beat your opponent.
Where you can find them: Keep an eye out in cities – they have been known to show up throughout large locations.
Rattata – #019
Not very exciting this one, mainly because everyone has managed to catch one. Still, good for bumping up your XP.
Where you can find them: Everywhere, just keep your eyes peeled.
Ratticate – #020
It might look small, but the evolved Rattata will fare well against a bigger Pokémon – so don’t be scared to use it in a battle.
Where you can find them: Again, very common. Your office, the toilet, McDonald’s. Basically anywhere.
Spearow – #021
A fairly basic Pokémon, but don’t let that fool you – its speed is one of its key skills.
Where you can find them: A normal-type, so stay alert wherever you are, chances are you’ll come across it quickly.
Fearow – #022
When you get your Spearow to level 20 you can start working it into a one of these big, terrifying birds.
Where you can find them: Common places, so wherever you are in the world it’ll keep popping up.
Ekans – #023
A purple snake-like creature that thrives on intimidation rather than actual battle.
Where you can find them: Marshlands are known to be full of them, so keep that in mind on your next hunt.
Arbok – #023
You can evolve this one from an Ekans when it reaches level 22. Bigger, scarier but not much harder to catch.
Where you can find them: Those boggy areas seem to work as well as industrial areas of large cities.
Raichu – #025
Pikachu’s final form, which will be leveled up when Thunder Stone is applied.
Where you can find them: Schools, industrial areas and generally concrete-heavy places are the best places to catch a glimpse of these.
Sandshrew – #027
A common sand-type Pokémon that thrives upon using its dusty exterior to win battles.
Where you can find them: Muddy places, car parks and railway stations have proved to be reliable places to catch them.
Sandslash – #028
This sand-type Pokémon that evolves from Sandshrew can be caught quite easily or hatched from eggs in approximately 5,500 steps.
Where you can find them: Supermarkets and in your driveway have proven to work for some players.
Nidoran – #029
A female only creature that has high HP – meaning it can take a beating before fainting during battles.
Where you can find them: Ponds, marshes, lakes.
Nidorina – #030
This will evolve from Nidoran if you manage to train it to level 16. A loyal and tough accomplice.
Where you can find them: Similar places, but don’t be afraid to go to dry, concrete places like your local high street to have a look for them.
Nidoqueen – #031
The final form of the Nidoran, but will only evolve with the help of Moon Stone.
Where you can find them: These are extremely rare so you’re probably going to have try every kind of location mentioned to try and nab one.
Nidoran (male) – #032
Male equivalent of Nidoran with similar strong attacking tendencies.
Where you can find them: These are usually found in parks as well as town centres. An easy catch if you can locate.
Nidorino – #033
The next phase of a male Nidroan is a solitary but aggressive Pokémon, one that will thrive in battles if caught and trained.
Where you can find them: Due to its solitary ways you probably will have to go to secluded locations like forests to spot them.
Nidoking – #034
The final incarnation of the Nidroan and Nidorino is one of the most feared poison and ground creatures in the game – worth going out your way purely for its aggressive nature.
Where you can find them: Wet areas seem key to those who have managed to find them so far. Your village pond, maybe?
Clefairy – #035
A friendly Pokémon that won’t attack well in battles, but will withstand brutal assaults better than you think.
Where you can find them: These have been spotted at tourist spots and landmarks, so take a day-trip to local landmarks and try and catch them there.
Clefable – #036
Slightly more timid that its previous form as a Clefairy – so if you see one, you better act swiftly before it disappears again!
Where you can find them: These little pink fluff balls have been known to hang around local churches and cemeteries.
Vulpix – #037
A fox like fire-type Pokémon that uses its deceptive speed to its advantage during battles.
Where you can find them: If you’re in a drier climate you’ll come across these often, in deserts and on beaches.
Ninetales – #038
The next stage of a Vulpix is extremely rare and uses defence often alongside its sharper agility in battles.
Where you can find them: Hot, dry places are ideal but grassy areas like fields are known to be a popular spot to catch them.
Jigglypuff – #039
It might look soft on the outside, but it is a surprisingly durable creature considering its smaller stature.
Where you can find them: They’re also fans of big landmarks, so when you end up by a tourist attraction just take a quick glance around for one.
Wigglytuff – #040
The upgraded version of a Jigglypuff becomes even stronger at deflecting blows when exposed to Moon Stone. A must have for defensive battlers.
Where you can find them: Town centres, city centres and big crowded places.
Zubat – #041
A fairly easy creature to catch and takes just over 4,000 steps to hatch from eggs. A fast and sharp creature.
Where you can find them: As it’s classified as poisonous Pokémon, think outside in open spaces and by water mainly.
Golbat – #042
The Zubat successor takes perseverance to catch but use its immense speed to advantage in battles better than most.
Where you can find them: Known to be found in a variety of places as long as they’re in rural locations.
Oddish – #043
This blueberry-looking little creature struggles with deflecting attacks, but its fast moves offer a fair counterbalance in clashes.
Where you can find them: Farms and forests have proven to work well for other users.
Gloom – #044
It uses a smelly odor to deflect attention in the games but you’ll have no such problem in real life. It evolves from an Oddish meaning and a commonly found Pokémon that is essential to all collections.
Where you can find them: A walk in the garden is usually all it takes to land this little creature.
Vileplume – #045
The poison/grass type, which evolves from an Oddish and a Gloom may not look tough, but it thrives in battles by using its quick speed attacks to beat opponents.
Where you can find them: Large parks in in the city in particular are the most common locations for those on the hunt for these.
Paras – #046
A weak Pokémon for battles, but is a relatively easy catch for both novices and experts.
Where you can find them: Grassy areas have yielded results for many players.
Parasect – #047
When evolved at level 24 from a Paras, it gains several abilities such as speedier attacks and also strong defensive tendencies.
Where you can find them: Open areas with grass is a prime spot for them.
Venonat – #048
A poison/bug hybrid that thrives on its quick and defensive reactions mid-battle.
Where you can find them: Nature parks and small footpaths.
Venomoth – #049
A rare poison/bug insect that relies on speed for evasion and during tense battles. It will level up from level 31 and can progress quickly.
Where you can find them: Woodland areas in particular are for prospective captors.
Diglett – #050
Not rare in the slightest, but an essential part of all collections if you want to catch ‘em all.
Where you can find them: In the car or on the road could prove lucky for prospective hunters.
Dugtrio – #051
Evolves from Diglett when it reaches level 26 but rarely caught in the wild with a catch rate of 6.5%.
Where you can find them: Hard places like mountain ranges, steep walls or hills.
Meowth – #052
A speedy creature that uses Unnerve to beat its opponents in battle.
Where you can find them: No particular location, so you should be able to catch it on your way to work.
Persian – #053
The fast creature that levels up from a Meowth at level 28 and is counted as a common Pokémon – but rather tricky to actually catch. Be prepared for a fight.
Where you can find them: These are found in very common places like parks and even by your local shops, regardless if you’re in a city or a more rural area.
Psyduck – #054
As you’ve probably guessed from the name, this little dude uses psychic powers against his opponents. There’s some debate about how effective the big-billed fellow is though, so proceed into battle with caution.
Where you can find them: A water type, so check ponds, lakes and the seaside.
Golduck – #055
This evolved Psyduck is far superior than its predecessor, however it is far rarer and requires more skill to catch.
Where you can find them: Lakes and rivers predominately.
Mankey – #056
It’s a fighting-type creature, so it’s tricky to catch but very useful in battles if you can nab one.
Where you can find them: Being a fighter – gyms are a good bet to scout in.
Growlithe – #058
Loyal, attacking and relatively easy to catch – this is a staple for all good Pokémon battlers’ arsenal.
Where you can find them: A fire-type will be found easier in hotter climates, but dry plains or even overground trains have proved successful for some.
Arcanine – #059
The evolved version of a Growlithe will use Flash Fire to scare opponents and matches especially well with grass Pokémon during tense battles.
Where you can find them: Inner cities on summer days or even by the beach have provided players with great success so far.
Poliwag – #060
A water type that’ll struggle in battles due to its relatively small stature but easy to catch in the wild.
Where you can find them: Down by water-based locations – so rivers and streams are likely locations to start searching at.
Poliwhirl – #061
The creature evolves from Poliwag at level 25 but is immensely faster, making it stronger in fights.
Where you can find them: Slightly more difficult to find, but try searching at a local harbour if there is such a thing near you.
Poliwrath – #062
The Poliwag’s final form relies on defence as opposed to speed in tough battles.
Where you can find them: Water locations, but these are rarer than previous incarnations so think about seaside locations that most people don’t go to.
Abra – #063
These can be surprisingly rare creatures, but they offer very little apart from stealthy attacks during battles.
Where you can find them: Grassy areas have proved fine locations for these creatures to be hiding.
Kadabra – #064
An extremely rare monster that will struggle to withstand attacks but very efficient at dishing it out using its Synchronise ability to confound opponents. Might be easier to level up your Abra when it reaches level 16
Where you can find them: Grassy and residential areas – but usually at night.
The final form of an Abra and a Kadabra uses its top-tier speed attacks during battles – a must have for serious players.
Where you can find them: Nighttime locations usually yield success as do hospitals for some reason, much to players’ confusion.
Machop – #066
Despite its small stature, the fighting-type Pokemon makes for quite the monster to have in your possession, due to its surprising strength.
Where you can find them: Gyms, sports stadiums and athletic tracks are known to yield results for those on a Machop hunt.
Machoke – #067
You might think he looks like a pro-wrestler – and that’s not a bad assumption, as Machoke is twice as strong as its previous form (Machop) and very handy in battles.
Where you can find them: Similar places – active and fighting locations. Just don’t go getting yourself in any scraps to snatch one.
The four-armed monster which evolves from a Machoke is one of the strongest Pokémon in the game – but extremely difficult to catch in the wild for most players.
Where you can find them: Outside places work best, with gyms large and small proving good locations.
Bellsprout – #069
An ugly Pokémon that is remarkably easy to catch – but nonetheless can prove handy as a poison monster in duels.
Where you can find them: As is common for poison Pokémon, industrial areas like cities are where they are usually found.
This will evolve from a Bellsprout at level 21 and expertly uses the ability Chlorophyll to stun and perplex opponents.
Where you can find them: Cities and town centres usually work, but they are far harder to catch than you’d expect.
Victreebel – #071
The final form of the Bellsprout is one of the deadliest poison Pokémon available, but nearly impossible to catch.
Where you can find them: Your best off to wait and evolve your Weepinbell using the Leaf Stone item. If you’re desperate, cities and towns will be good locations to search.
Tentacool – #072
A semi-rare water-based monster that will use its speed to make up for below-average defence in battles.
Where you can find them: Streams, smaller rivers in woodland areas.
Tentacruel – #073
Not just the slightly more evil version of its previous form, but also a remarkably faster and stronger Pokémon that will win you battles. If you can catch yourself one, that is.
Where you can find them: Water locations will work best, but think outside the box. Local swimming pool maybe?
Geodude – #074
Aggressive looking, but in fact a monster that relies heavily on its above average defence skills. Excels at absorbing strong attacks.
Where you can find them: Shopping centres and car parks will be a good start for your hunt.
Graveler – #075
The evolved Geodude is simply remarkably strong on defence during battles. One to use when resting other creatures mid-battle.
Where you can find them: Train stations and road side spots have been known to be a prime location.
Golem – #076
Some fans have called Golem one of the sturdiest Pokémon on the game. Following it’s evolution from a Graveler it also becomes an accomplished attacker too.
Where you can find them: Deceptively difficult to catch, but quarries and pebble beaches will be a good location to scout.
Ponyta – #077
One of the few fire-type Pokémon in the game that is not only rare, but puts up a fight when you cross paths in the wild.
Where you can find them: Dry locations like car parks and fields will be a good place to start in your quest.
Rapidash – #078
The flame-covered creature evolves from a Ponyta at level 40, and uses speed to its advantage during battles and finds itself capable of disarming opponents using the ability Flash Fire.
Where you can find them: Uber-rare these ones, but have been known to appear in the desert.
Slowpoke – #079
The loveable pink creature combines its water and psychic skills to become one of the most durable creatures during battles in the game.
Where you can find them: Large lakes and rivers have proved worthwhile for prospective owners.
Slowbro – #080
This will evolve from a Slowpoke at level 37, so will prove easier to level up than catch this wily creature.
Where you can find them: Large rivers that run through cities often provide results for players.
Magnemite – #081
A relatively simple catch for a Pokémon with low attributes, but the trouble first is finding it.
Where you can find them: Schools and colleges have been a favoured place, so if you’re not in one of those, you’re going to be doing a lot of wandering.
Magneton – #082
It’ll level up from a Magnemite at level 30 and is immensely more powerful than its previous form, with a special move proving to be catastrophic to an opponent due to its Special Attack power.
Where you can find them: As before, schools and college campuses, but these have been known to lurk in hospitals also.
One of the only Pokémon that does not evolve from or to another creature, making it a rare find in the wild.
Where you can find them: You could be searching for a while, but grassy locations like farms and woods have will be a good starting place.
Doduo – #084
A wild creature that thrives on speed and its aggressive nature to best Pokémon in battles.
Where you can find them: Forests, fields and wide green spaces.
Dodrio – #085
Similar to above – but with an extra head. Turns out that the third brain is a crucial weapon that improves its speed and attacking nature. An unusual but successful creature this one.
Where you can find them: Wide spaces, specifically far out of the city to catch this rare bird.
Seel – #086
No points for guessing which creature this is based on. It looks a bit silly and it reflects that in its lackluster battle abilities.
Where you can find them: By the water, of course.
Dewgong – #087
Slightly tougher than its previous form (Seel), but also tricky to find. A worthwhile catch if you cross paths, for sure.
Where you can find them: Again, by the water. But as it is a rarer and tougher catch, bigger water areas like the seaside may prove worthwhile.
Grimer – #088
A fan favourite almost purely based on its hilarious face, but it’s also a hardy and absorbing Pokémon ideal for patient battlers.
Where you can find them: Marshlands are a known location, as well as small streams and rivers.
Muk – #089
Not quite as friendly looking as Grimer and rightly so. If you manage to stumble across one it’ll put up a fight that novices might struggle to corral.
Where you can find them: Larger water areas like lakes and reservoirs are good places to start searching.
Shellder – #090
A water-based Pokémon that uses its shell as a key part of its surprisingly tough defence strategies.
Where you can find them: Rivers and lakes prominently.
Cloyster – #091
Mightily strong and predictably rare monster that evolves from a Shellder, but its main ability of Shell Armour can repel some of the toughest battle foes.
Where you can find them: Lakes, harbours and swimming pools are good spots to try and nab one.
Gastly – #092
The poison Pokémon has been known to use its frightening appearance to stave of prospective battles in the wild, but its Special Attacks are some of the best for this level of monster.
Where you can find them: Night-time is the preferred time of day for them to appear, so bide your time, wait in a car park and a few will likely appear.
Haunter – #093
These can be rare in the wild, so if you can evolve your Gastly at level 25 – you’ll be remarkably less stressed searching for it.
Where you can find them: Night-time ideally, with Churches and graveyards being known locations. Spooky.
Gengar – #094
The final form of Gastly and Haunter, its Special Attacking ability is one of the game’s highest, with Levitate being a known weapon.
Where you can find them: A rare catch in the wild, but the usual locations for ghost-type Pokémon applies – forests and fields.
Onix – #095
A dual type rock/ground monster, one that uses defence to its advantage during prolonged battles.
Where you can find them: Dry, hard places are a favourite – so car parks and train stations are susceptible locations.
Drowzee – #096
This lethargic psychic-type uses dizzying abilities like Insomnia during battles, but will struggle against stronger Pokémons.
Where you can find them: Very common in all locations – so won’t have to play for long before encountering one.
Hypno – #097
Does much of the same of its primitive stage as a Drowzee, but to a higher and more battle-worthy level.
Where you can find them: Residential areas like your own house will be a hotbed for them, particularly at night time.
Krabby – #098
A water-type that thrives on weaker Pokémon in battles, and uses Hyper Cutter in particular to best its opponents.
Where you can find them: Lakes, rivers and even smaller streams will be ideal locations to search.
Kingler – #099
Slightly stronger than the earlier stage as a Krabby and surprisingly easy to catch – so act fast when spotted in the wild.
Where you can find them: Common by water, but have been found in cities and fields as well.
Voltorb – #100
An electric-type that is incredibly rare to find in the wild, but is a valuable asset if you cross paths with it.
Where you can find them: Industrial locations and places with plenty of concrete will provide results.
Electrode – #101
The Voltorb’s final form uses its speed immensely in battle and will best most Pokémon when using Static.
Where you can find them: Cities, car parks and pylons are prime locations.
Exeggcute – #102
A rare monster than can struggle under sustained pressure during a battle – but worth collecting to get all 150 though, right?
Where you can find them: Grassy areas like fields and gardens.
Exeggutor – #103
When leveled-up from Exeggcute with the help of Leaf Stone, we’re left with a strong psychic creature that will contend well in battles.
Where you can find them: Fields and parks most likely.
Cubone – #104
A common Pokémon that thrives on using defence strategies like Rock Head to stave off attacks in battle.
Where you can find them: Ditches and streams have been successful locations for many users.
Marowak – #105
The enhanced Cubone uses many of the same methods to deflect attacks, but does so with more conviction as well as a sharp bite on attack.
Where you can find them: Roadside locations and car parks are known spots.
Hitmonlee – #106
A fighting-type Pokémon that makes itself a difficult capture due to its aggressive exterior.
Where you can find them: Gyms and football stadiums are their hangouts of choice.
Hitmonchan – #107
The male-only evolution of Hitmonlee is a creature to be reckoned with and uses its knowledge of the Iron Fist to pummel opponents in battles.
Where you can find them: Parks and other athletic areas in towns.
Lickitung – #108
The pink monster can look soft and adorable in pictures, but is in fact an extremely hardy monster that’ll withstand heavy pressure mid-battle.
Where you can find them: Rare creatures but usually found in obvious locations like your own home.
Koffing – #109
The poison-type uses its pungent chemicals as a defence mechanism in battles with usually good results.
Where you can find them: A rare creature found in grasslands – but it won’t put up much of a fight.
Weezing – #110
The evolved version of Koffing thrives on dirty locations and uses the chemicals to its advantage in battles, albeit slowly.
Where you can find them: Urban areas like the city and sometimes out in the countryside too.
Rhyhorn – #111
Ground/rock-type that will best its opponent through patience and solid defence movements like Rock Head.
Where you can find them: Reported so far as a very rare creature, but rocky areas have proven successful places for captors.
Rhydon – #112
The Ryhorn’s evolved stage is one of the toughest Pokémon currently available to players and also probably of the hardest to catch.
Where you can find them: Car park, basements and garages have been known to play host to the rocky creature.
Chansey – #113
A normal-type creature that is one of the rarest in the game despite its relative ineffectiveness during battles.
Where you can find them: As a normal-type, they will just pop up out of nowhere – you’ve just got to be lucky to catch it.
Tangela – #114
Grassy-type that is much coveted for its intriguing appearance, but is unlikely to become one of the strongest creatures in your Pokédex.
Where you can find them: Farms and forests in particular are known to be visited by these messy creatures.
Kangaskhan – #115
An usual creature this, one that has not evolved from anything and will not evolve to anything else, aside from Mega Kangaskhan using the specific Kangaskhan potion.
Where you can find them: Currently can only be caught in Australia’s rocky parts, but will likely come to other regions soon.
Horsea – #116
A water-type creature that is fairly susceptible to attack but can dish it out as good as it gets with enhanced Special Attack abilities.
Where you can find them: By the sea and large rivers.
Seadra – #117
The evolved Horsea will thrive in certain battles by using its water-based attacks, but its defence can leave it vulnerable to attack.
Where you can find them: By watery locations mainly.
Goldeen – #118
An aggressive water-type that levels up easily at a fast rate and learns new abilities quickly.
Where you can find them: Ponds, lakes and streams all have been known to possess these creatures.
Seaking – #119
Smarter and rarer than its primitive form, but still a difficult one to locate despite its lacking battle skills.
Where you can find them: By large swatches of water – the ocean for example.
Staryu – #120
Another water-based creature – a handy one that uses speed to dodge attacks in battle and evade captors (like you).
Where you can find them: By wet locations – rivers, streams, etc.
Starmie – #121
Evolves from Staryu when exposed to a Water Stone, which almost doubles its speed ability and makes it far more durable than before.
Where you can find them: Oceans, lakes and rivers.
Mr Mime – #122
Creepy-looking creature that uses psychic attacks to best its opponents in battles.
Where you can find them: Currently available only in Europe for now but still super-rare in the region anyway.
Scyther – #123
Very rare bug/flying type Pokémon that is both attacking and speedy in nature – handy in battles against slow foes.
Where you can find them: Nature reserves and playgrounds mostly.
Jynx – #124
Fast-becoming a fan favourite for its looks, but the icy-type monster can entrance opponents with ease and uses it to evade capture too.
Where you can find them: Quite uncommon to find, but those in snowy spots tend to see them more often that those in dry locations.
Electabuzz – #125
Electric-type that uses its Static ability to perfection in battles – however it has been reported to be nigh on impossible to find though.
Where you can find them: Industrial estates will be obvious locations for these types.
Magmar – #126
Rare to catch in the wild, but the monster uses its Flame Body ability to best weaker opponents like grass-types.
Where you can find them: Deserts and dry locations like car parks in warm climates are locations where you’ll likely have success.
Pinsir – #127
Very rare creature that goes on the offensive quickly to snip at foes. A great battle Pokémon to obtain.
Where you can find them: Golf courses in particular have been working for fans all over the globe.
Tauros – #128
A normal-type that utilises skill and aggression to be one of the premier fighting Pokémon in the entire game.
Where you can find them: Currently only available in North America. In particular, dry, green areas.
Magikarp – #129
A common water-type Pokémon that struggles with attack and is found to best response to foes with a defensive strategy.
Where you can find them: Rivers, lakes and seaside towns have all worked so far for players.
Gyarados – #130
A dual water/flying-type creature which is pretty unheard of and even harder to find and then catch with a regular Pokéball.
Where you can find them: Wet locations like beaches and harbours if you’re lucky.
Lapras – #131
A rare one to locate in the wild, but its above-average durability in battles make it worth a catch when possible.
Where you can find them: Large rivers and lakes will be your best bet to find these.
Ditto – #132
It may look harmless and that’s because it mostly is. A strong defender and durable at times, but not much going for it apart from that.
Where you can find them: These normal-types will pop up in any locations, but the Ditto will appear scarcely.
Eevee – #133
Ultra-rare, but for a reason. When caught it has the ability to evolve into various different creatures, including Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon depending on the stone applied.
Where you can find them: Your garden or even bathrooms will be prime locations for these much coveted creatures.
Vaporeon – #134
Evolves from Eeevee when Water Stone is applied, but it’s unlikely you’ll catch one in the wild.
Where you can find them: Houses and water based locations may prove fruitful.
Jolteon – #135
An Eeevee that is exposed to Thunder Stone will give you this result – a wickedly fast and powerful Pokémon.
Where you can find them: Concrete areas like cities are a good place to start if you’re going to catch in the wild.
Flareon – #136
The final path for an Eeevee, which is the result of exposure to Fire Stone.
Where you can find them: Hot, dry climates will be the easiest, so don’t expect to come across this in your garden any time soon.
Porygon – #137
A unique looking creature that might not appear like much, but it does offer good alternatives for attacking and defending.
Where you can find them: These will pop up anywhere, but how frequently? Very rarely, so be ready.
Omanyte – #138
A rock/water-type monster that will withstand the strongest attacks during battles – an essential for serious players.
Where you can find them: Water locations or rocky places seem to do well. A pebble beach will be the prime location for it.
Omastar – #139
The evolved version of the Omanyte is probably the most defensive-minded Pokémon in the game and known to withstand attacks from even the strongest foes.
Where you can find them: Beaches and large lakes are a good place to start.
Kabuto – #140
A rock/water type catch that will offer very little outside of stubborn defence and not much else beyond that.
Where you can find them: A mixture of rocky locations like cliff sides and water will be a good place to look.
Kabutops – #141
The evolved Kabuto offers more focus on attack than defending, but still can hold its own against larger foes.
Where you can find them: Pebble beaches in particular have been known to spawn the wild creatures.
Aerodactyl – #142
A rock/flyer that doesn’t evolve any further – but its wicked speed and attacking ability means that it doesn’t really need to.
Where you can find them: Quarries and shopping centers in particular.
Snorlax – #143
A friendly monster that doesn’t possess much attacking prowess, but makes up for it in durability.
Where you can find them: Very rare to catch, but places like schools and workplaces definitely a good place to start looking.
Articuno – #144
It is not known to evolve into any further Pokémon but is one of the rarest in the game – so good luck coming across it any time soon.
Where you can find them: Snowy and icy locations ideally, but very small chance of actually encountering one in the wild.
Zapdos – #145
Another ultra-rare bird that if caught will be the best of your collection, most likely.
Where you can find them: Farmlands, nature reserves and unsurprisingly, bird aviaries.
Moltres – #146
A fiery flying-type that you’ll struggle to find in the wild. Worth a look though, as its attacking skills are insanely good.
Where you can find them: Very few have caught this one so far – but hot locations will obviously be key.
Dratini – #147
A dragon-type that will best its opponent using the Shed Skin ability during battles. Not as rare as you’d expect though.
Where you can find them: City landmarks have proven fruitful for prospective owners.
Dragonair – #148
The evolved version of a Dratini, but very few have actually found this creature in the wild so far.
Where you can find them: Landmarks are a primary guess, but little to no chance of actually finding it there.
Dragonite – #149
One of the strongest attacking Pokémon in the game that has been known to be caught in the wild by players, but scarcely.
Where you can find them: More landmarks, but try some of the lesser-known and unconventional spots.
Mewtwo – #150
The most powerful creature in the game by some distance – but yet to be found in the wild by players.
Where you can find them: Your guess is as good as ours, really.
Mew – #151
Another Legendary monster but have not been found in the wild by players just yet. We can pray though.
Where you can find them: Sorry, but very little chance of that.
