Pokemon Let’s Go Rare Pokemon

Categorized mainly due to the extremely slim chances of encountering them, Rare Pokemon cannot at all spawn in the wild. Moreover, these do not show up on the Pokedex either.

The reason you know about them in the first place is because of an instance. This happens in the Viridian Forest where the sighting of a Bulbasaur is reported by a trainer.

With that said, there are ways you can increase the chances of their spawn. Utilizing different types of lure items including Super and Max will see to the increased spawn rates. Additionally, performing a Catch Combo will also let you find rare Pokemon more easily.
