But how to find rare Pokemon in Pokemon GO? Where can you find them? We haven’t figured it out yet, but we are sure some player or the other will soon get their hands at one of these elusive creatures and will let us know how they caught it. We guess these Pokemon might appear after crossing a very high level in the game and after collecting loads of experience, but that’s just a guess.

In case you don’t know about it, a stampede was recently caused in Central Park, New York City due to a rare Pokemon. Apparently, a player shouted out that he had spotted a Vaporeon, an evolution of Eevee, in that area. Following this, a massive crowd of Pokemon GO players rushed there, some even jumping out of running cars. As you cannot choose which Pokemon Eevee will evolve into, it is a big deal to catch any of its evolution. Hopefully, no one was injured.
