From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
This is a list of Pokémon by their catch rate, from the highest rate to the lowest. This means that the Pokémon which are easiest to capture are listed first, and the Pokémon that are the hardest to capture are listed last.
In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the catch rates of Kyogre, Groudon, Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, and Zekrom, the game mascots made obtainable in those games that did not already have a catch rate of 3, were changed to 3, while the catch rate of Rayquaza was raised from 3 to 45.
In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the catch rates of Buzzwole, Pheromosa, Xurkitree, Celesteela, Kartana, Guzzlord, six of the Ultra Beasts previously available in Sun and Moon, were all changed from 25, 255, 30, 25, 255, and 15, respectively, to 45, while the catch rate of Necrozma was raised from 3 to 255.
Generation I held items
In Pokémon Yellow, four Pokémon will have different held items than their Red/Blue counterparts when traded to Generation II. The starter Pikachu's "catch rate" value is set to 163 (as opposed to 190), which causes it to hold a Light Ball when traded over. A wild Kadabra's catch rate value is set to 96 upon capture (as opposed to 100), which gives it a TwistedSpoon when traded over. A wild Dragonair's catch rate is 27 (as opposed to 45), which gives it a Protein when traded over. Finally, a wild Dragonite's catch rate is 9 (as opposed to 45), which gives it an Antidote when traded over. However, wild Dragonite cannot normally be obtained in Pokémon Yellow.
The gift Pokémon from Pokémon Stadium will have exclusive held items when traded to Generation II. If obtained in Round 1, they will hold the Normal Box; if obtained in Round 2, they will hold the Gorgeous Box.
