Pokemon Rarity List

Pokemon Rarity List

Below you'll find the list of where you can find each species of Pokemon. However, this list is broken up by terrain and rarity. While the staff of Alternia knows how things are distributed amongst us, you as the member may not so below is a key to just help you understand what a few things mean. Also, you'll want to know that this list does not include the evolution/pre-evolution of the Pokemon, and it is assumed that they are either the same rarity or one level higher in rareness then the stage provided. If the Pokemon evolves by Item, they are equal to the level of staff needed to spawn the item. (Pokemon that evolve by Stone i.e. Clefable is Umod+ in the wild. Other wise, normal evolutions is the same rarity as the Pokemon it evolves from.)

Pokemon who's names have been Italicized are Fakemon.

Pokemon under the common category can be spawned by all members of staff with the ability to ref.

Pokemon under the uncommon category can only be spawned by Global Moderators and up. You must show some effort in your posts if you are looking for these. These are less likely to just be given to people that do not have above average posts.

Pokemon under the rare category can only be spawned by Universal Moderators and up. These Pokemon may be quested for or plotted. You can mention that you are searching for one, and a Umod+ will take care of the rest.

Pokemon that are gold and/or bolded can only be spawned by Admin. These Pokemon also typically require a quest to acquire due to their rarity. If you would like to get a quest, PM an admin, preferably the one you would like to put you on this quest. They will then talk to the other two admins, and all three of us must agree that the person asking for this deserves this quest Pokemon. In order for you to be put on a Gold rarity plot, the character you are using for the quest must have at least 3 pages in their journey. Your posts should exceed the minimum and be considered very good, because we need to know that you're actually working hard to get the good stuff. The admin will respond to your request telling you if you're getting the plot or not. If you're not, you will be told why so that you can try to do better so you can try again some other time. Also, if you got a rare Pokemon somehow or another in your journey, it is best if you wait two pages before you request a quest for an uber rare Pokemon, as we don't want members getting a lot of rare Pokemon quickly.

Pokemon marked by an asterisk (*) can only be found in certain specific areas, listed at the bottom.

Without further ado, these are the terrains:

Sky - These Pokémon live in the very reaches of the atmosphere, much of the time out of the reach of the ground.
