Rarest Pokemon to catch

Recommended Posts

Don't know if it's the correct place to write it but here my top 10 rarest Pokemon to catch during normal gameplay (I'll add special gameplay later):

-N°10 Stakataka in UM and Blacephalon in US (only 2 of both in one version each, quite rare but there's so much rarer)

-N°8 Skuntank in Diamond (whereas Purugly can be found in ORAS and Pearl Skuntank remains exclusive to Diamond)

-N°7 Hitmontop in Colosseum Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan in XD (only in one example, very hard to catch, it's the only way to shinyhunt Hitmontop)

-N°4 Togetic in Colosseum (only one at the end of the game, only way to shinyhunt it) or in B2W2 during event Funfiesta mission in Japan

-N°3 Celebi in Crystal (VC or Japanese Cartridge during an online event, only one, only way to shinyhunt it legally)

-N°2 Mew in Emerald (legally only in Japan during an event, only way to shinyhunt it legally)

-N°1 Scizor in Colosseum (only one, in Japan with e-reader cards, honnestly which one of you really caught it?)


Special gameplay:

-Old Man glitch in Gen1 Venusaur, Charizard, Aerodactyl, Alakazam (cannot be shinyhunted)

-Emerald  Battle Pyramid : Villeplume, Jolteon, Ludicolo, Shedinja, Flygon, Shiftry, Exeggutor, Alakazam, Omastar, Armaldo, Cradily, Aerodactyl, Machamp, Flareon, Blastoise, Charizard, Arcanine, Vaporeon, Porygon2 (can be shinyhunting by glitching)

-XY demo: Exeggutor

I would think Deoxys would be roughly equivalent of Celebi for rarity. A mythical that can has a one exception game (OK OR/AS is technically two) with unlimited one per save capture. So just one step lower since the old events are not exclusive to Japan. It just sucks that it can't be shiny outside of old events.

Are you going to include stuff like non-mainline games like Mew being permanently available in Pokemon Ranch?
