"Pokemon Go," the insanely popular AR mobile game from Niantic is known to have a total of 151 Pokemon with some of them being Rare Pokemon. Rare Pokemon do not show up as often as other Pokemon do.
Mew, Mewtwo, legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres are some of the Rare Pokemon that are known to exist in this sensational game.
Legendary Pokemon Mewtwo has recently attracted a lot of interest among gamers. The first question would be can players find Mewtwo in the wild.
Players need to understand that Mewtwo is the genetically altered clone of Mew and recent data mining has revealed the existence of Mew as only a "Mythic" type of Pokemon. Whereas, Mewtwo is without a Base Capture Rate but only a Flee Rate, which means Mewtwo might not be showing up in the wild, Bustle reported.
Mew is also known to make itself invisible and is rarely seen. Mewtwo on the other had has been "engineered" to be the best Pokemon in battle and its only intention is to defeat its rival, making it one of the strongest battle Pokemon.
So, it is more likely that Rare Pokemon like Mew, Mewtwo and others are made available only via special events, as the original trailer for the game revealed. The video had shown players running to catch Mewtwo near Times Square in New York.
Niantic could host a special Pokemon event at a popular location and players might have to rush to the spot to be able to catch them.
These special events might not be available to everyone, but only to those who have completed their Pokedex, so players were advised to catch as many Pokemon they can in the game.
Meanwhile, Reddit user, ftb_hodor has revealed that he completed the North American Pokedex, which includes a total of 142 Pokemon out of the 151. This Level 31 Trainer was unable to catch Farfetch'd, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, Ditto, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo and Mew. He has reportedly caught 4,269 Pokemon.
One way of finding out if there would be such special events is at the ongoing San Diego Comic Con, according to reports.
