Pokemon Go, an augmented reality title from Niantic which allows players to catch Pokemon in real life. From Pidgey to Dragonite, almost every Pokemon is available in the game for you to catch except for some Legendary Pokemon.

In the game, there will be a time when you will encounter some strong Rare Pokemon. Though you will have to reach a certain level to do that, but you will encounter them at some point. Capturing a Rare Pokemon can be pretty challenging since they rarely appear on the map. However, when they do appear on the map, you have to be prepared for that moment from the start.

How To Catch Rare Pokemon In Pokemon Go

Before catching a Rare Pokemon, you will have to find its nest first. There are many ways which can help you in locating Rare Pokemon. The Pokemon Spawn chart, for example, can help you locate the spawn points of various Pokemon. The chart can provide you information such as when and where a specific Pokemon will spawn. Another way to catch Rare Pokemon in Pokemon Go is to use Insta-PokeGo bot. The bot basically makes your smartphone think that they’re in a different location, thus giving you the chance to catch Pokemon which are restricted in your area.

Now, after you find out the location of a Rare Pokemon, its time to prepare yourself to capture it. Below are the ways which can help you catch Rare Pokemon in Pokemon Go.

Stock Up Pokeballs and Great Balls

The first thing you need to do is to get your hands on as many Pokeballs and Great Balls as you can. If you ask why Great Balls and not just regular Pokeballs, then you should know that Rare Pokemon tend to be strong Pokemon. Even if you manage to capture one by using a regular Pokeball, it will most likely escape. So it would be wise to use Great Balls only on strong Rare Pokemon.

Also, keep in mind that getting your hands on Pokeballs isn’t an easy thing to do, so you will have to use them with care. And try not to waste a lot of Pokeballs while trying to catch a common Pokemon.

Practice Your Pokeball Throwing Skills

There is no benefit in encountering a Rare Pokemon when you don’t even know how to throw a Pokeball properly. Rare Pokemon are fast and strong Pokemon. They can easily doge the Pokeballs you throw at them, so you will have to know the proper way of doing it.

There is an application which can help you practice your Pokeball throwing skills in Pokemon Go. It is titled as ‘Ball Practice For Pokemon Go’ and is available for free to download.

Stock Up Razz Berries 

Now, the next thing you want to do is stock up Razz Berries. Most of you will be familiar with what they do. For those who don’t know, well they kind of calm down the Pokemon your trying to catch. So feed as many Razz Berries as you can to the Pokemon. This will make it easier for you to catch it. Also, try not to feed it too much since you will be wasting your Razz Berries on an already calmed down Pokemon.
