Chart uses 100 million data points to determine Pokémon spawn percentage and times

Creators of the Pokémon Go radar site Poke Radar has compiled a list of all 151 Pokémon in Pokémon Go to determine the likelihood of them spawning. Using approximately 100 million historical data points the radar developers were able to determine how often a Pokemon would appear out of every 10,000 spawns, and at what time of day.

The best way to interpret the chart is to find a Pokémon you’ve been searching for to determine your likelihood of finding them at certain times. For example, if I’m on the hunt for Magikarp I can see that there’s a 4.78% chance of encountering one, which is relatively high, and that my best bet is to head to the local river around 2:26pm.

Unreleased Pokémon such as Mewtwo, Mew, Ditto and the legendary birds sit at 0% spawn rate, as you’d expect, while regional exclusives like the Mr Mime from Europe have a very low spawn rate worldwide, but are clearly more common if you live in that region.

Outside of Pokémon hunting the chart is an interesting reference tool to work out which Pokémon should be considered the amongst rarest in the wild and which ones are the most common. I’ll give you a hint about that last one – it’s Pidgey. It’s always going to be Pidgey.

The ‘Most active time’ is local to the user, so there’s no need to take time zones into consideration when looking at the chart.
