What about "Very rare"? Some pokemon, like Wailord, are listed as "Very rare" on this site, but this page doesn't mention it. -Buddy Christ

There's also "Few" on some articles such as Gloom. Why is this? Carrottime 03:49, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Definitions

Is it possible to have percentage definitions here? More importantly, who decided that x% was alpha Rarity? — THE TROM — 09:05, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Are you talking about the encounter rate? --☆Kevzo8 09:14, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Uh, maybe. The common/rare/uncommon thing that you get on the Pokemon's articles in a fancy colored box... Third column along... — THE TROM — 09:21, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm echoing the above question, since it seems to have been forgotten about. What % encounter rates qualify as Common/Uncommon/Rare? If a Pokémon has a 1% encounter rate in one route and 50% in another, is it Common or Rare? Do we have a system in place for deciding these things? Bikini Miltank 14:47, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Update?

Curious as to if this page should be updated in terms of the Rare section with the inclusion of ★H, ☆ , ☆ex, and ☆H. Frozen Fennec 21:33, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
