Rarest Pokemon in Pokemon Go (2022): How to Get Arks, Tirtouga & More

The rarest Pokemon in Pokemon Go will be difficult to catch even for the most dedicated trainers. So if you have any of these in your collection, you must be doing something right!

In the story-driven Pokemon games, the rarest creatures you can add to your team are pretty much always legendary ones, since there’s usually only one available and you often have to complete the game to encounter them.

But things are a little different in the non-linear world of Pokemon Go. Some Pokémon can only be caught during special events, some only spawn in certain regions of the world, and others must be defeated in raids before you have a chance to catch them.

Below we’re going to look at some of the rarest Pokemon in Pokemon Go in 2022, like Archen and Tirtouga, along with some tips and tricks on how to find them so you can get one step closer to completing your Pokedex.


The rarest Pokemon in Pokemon Go in 2022

11. Galarian Lord Mime

Pokemon Go Galarian Mr Pantomime

Galarian Mr Mime made his Pokemon Go debut as part of the ticket “Tap…Tap…Tappity-Tap…” special research story in December 2020, meaning it’s long been an event-bound species (a practice that’s received quite a bit of backlash from players).

Luckily, it was available for free during the Holidays 2021 event, but it was still quite difficult to get since there was a Trading Collection Challenge to complete. Now it’s locked again until Niantic decides to unblock it again, which could be one long Away away.

10. Goomy

The rare Goomy in Pokemon Go

Kalos region Pokemon are all pretty rare in general, but Goomy has been nearly impossible to find since the Luminous Legends X event, where it made its Pokemon Go debut, ended in May 2021.

With wild spawns being so uncommon, the only way to ensure you get a Goomy now is to hatch a 10km egg, although it’s one of the rarest hatch alongside Noibat, so chances of getting one are there , Good very slim.

9. Sandil

Sandy Pokemon GO

You might not think of the ground/dark-type crocodile Sandil as a particularly coveted catch, but in Pokemon Go it’s gained a reputation for being incredibly difficult to obtain. As a result, many trainers spend countless hours trying to get one.

The only way to get Sandile right now is to get her from a 12km Egg (aka a Strange Egg), and it has one of the lowest rates of any potential hatch. Let’s not even get into how long it will take to fully evolve one into crocodiles!

8. Melting Metal

Melmetal in Pokemon Go

Despite being the first and only Pokémon to make its debut in Pokémon Go, Meltan is certainly not easy to find. Players must either use the Let’s GO, Meltan! Special research – which only rewards a single Meltan – or activate a Mystery Box for multiple encounters (we have instructions here).

While getting a Meltan is difficult enough, it’s actually its evolved form, Melmetal, that earns its place on our rarest Pokemon list because you need a paltry 400 Candy to evolve it. That’s quite a lot of Meltan to catch, something that can take months – or even years – to accomplish.

7. Salazzle

Salazzle in Pokemon Go

Salandit made his Pokemon Go debut during the All-Hands Rocket Retreat event in April 2022, which added it to the 12km egg pool – but there are plenty of other species that can hatch from eggs instead of Salandit, so there’s no guarantee you’ll ever get one.

As if that weren’t bad enough, trainers must hatch a female Salandite in order to evolve it into Salazzle, and the chance of getting one is only 12.5%. All in all, the chances of you ever being able to evolve a Salazzle are very slim and require one much of patience.

6. Tirtuga

Pokemon Go Tirtuga

Fossil Pokémon have always been hard to come by, no matter what game you’re playing, but in Pokémon Go, the word “rare” takes on a whole new meaning. One of the most recent fossil additions, Tirtouga, is now almost impossible to find.

The Water/Stone type debuted in January 2020 and was briefly available to hatch from 7km Eggs in February 2020 fossil event. Since then it has only been available in the wild, but the chances of it spawning seem to be off most trainers.

5. Arks

Pokemon GO Arks

Another rare Fossil Pokémon on our list is the Rock/Flying-type Ark, which also debuted alongside Tirtouga in January 2020. As with this Pokemon, the main way to get Arks used to be in 7km Eggs, but now it’s only available in the wild.

Just because it’s available doesn’t mean you can actually find one. Its high rarity means it will be incredibly difficult to catch enough to evolve into Archaeops, and you may have to spend your rare candy instead.

4. Axew

Pokemon GO Axew

Eventually evolving into the intimidating Haxorus, the Axew of the Unova region has a reputation for being one of the rarest non-legendary and non-mythical creatures in Pokemon Go, thanks to its incredibly low spawn rate in the wild.

Axew can hatch from a 10 km Egg, but it is in the highest rarity level, so the chances of this happening are very slim. It also doesn’t help that 10k eggs aren’t exactly common. Still, it might be your best bet.

3. Pikachu for free

Pikachu for free

This specially costumed Pikachu may not be region-limited or exclusive to a specific event, but what makes it so rare is how difficult it is to obtain. As a result, you probably won’t see many of them.

To get Pikachu Libre, you need to reach rank 20 in the Pokemon Go Battle League. Trainers who manage to reach this rank in a single season will be rewarded with an encounter with this rare Pokémon.

2. Every single unknown


Unsurprisingly, the mysterious Unown is one of the rarest Pokemon in Pokemon Go, and you get a full set of every Unown available (there are 26 of them!) can often seem like an impossible task.

Unown appears in special events, like the last one Go Fest 2021 where players could catch tons of Unown F and Unown G. Outside of these events, however, your chances of finding them are ridiculously slim.

1. Azelf, Mesprit and Uxie

Azelf Mesprit Uxie

Our number one is technical three Pokemon, but that’s part of what makes them so rare. Each only spawns in specific regions, and they don’t spawn very often at all. Getting your region’s Legendary is hard enough, but getting the other two is even harder.

To find Azelf you need to be in America and Greenland. Mesprit only appears in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India. Finally, Uxie is exclusive to the Asia Pacific region. That means you’ll need friends around the world or big travel plans to catch them all.
