    Urgh, don't even get me started.

    I will just say this: I've spent way too much time trying to find Ralts and Feebas on my Emerald and Pikachu on my LeafGreen which was a real pain!

      Honestly 5% is the sweet spot. Rare enough that you have to stop and look for it, but common enough that you don't have to waste a whole day looking.

      Febass was the worst. Randomized, individual tiles to fish in? And the evolution method... GAR!

      Also, ANY rare Safari Zone pokemon. The Safari Zone mini game never made sense to me.

      Instead of throwing food and rocks, we should throw food and compliments.

        I feel your pain, Feebas= Impossible to find. Also, trying to find Taurus or Schyter were a real pain aswell since the chances to encounter them, even if you were trying to find a shiny version of them was a nightmare.

          It took me an elapsed time of about 8 hours trying to find and catch a Kanghaskan in pokemon Blue version...finally I decided: I'd cheat. I used the blue missingno. effect, multiplied my masterballs, went to Safari zone, picked up the scent of the Pokemon there, and then went on looking near Blaine's Island. Finally caught one...after about an hour of looking there. >.>

            Agree with you there, 1% is just tedious... However it still won't stop me from searching for it unless I can find it later in the game with a higher encounter rate (if I don't want it on my team).

            I must admit, I've never tried looking for Feebas in R/S/E though. I find rare Pokemon really tempting to go after, looking for and eventually catching one is rewarding really.

            I wonder how long it would have taken if you didn't cheat! o.O'

              Depends on the mood, due to the reason that I'll also search for the right nature if I find that pokemon interesting. If it is more than an hour and still no luck, I'll probably give it another try some other time.

                I don't bother with natures if looking for a rare team member, I'd rather breed it. Ain't nobody got time for that! ;P

                *sigh* At the moment I'm hunting a Mantyke in Platinum, taking a while, it's encounter rate is 10% ... At least Rotom is getting some good training.

                    The longest I've ever took to find and catch a Pokemon was like around an hour? It was on Pokemon Ruby or Emerald, one of which, I was looking for a Chimecho at Mt. Pyre...

                    But when you do finally catch the Pokemon you're after, it's such a great feeling I'll admit! ^_^

                      Definitely Tynamo in Chargestone cave in White. Feebas also seem inmpossible to catch in DPPT. Not super rare, but Ditto are kind of hard to catch too.

                        I love this about Pokémon games! It makes the journey of catching them all feel like a big achievement.

                        and now I'm playing through Diamond. Sunday just gone I went into Wayward cave and spent hours wandering lost looking for Gible only to find I WAS IN THE WRONG DARN CAVE. *mumble grumble* "Sorry Mario, you're Gible's in another cave that you can't access right now. But lol look at how nooby you are running around lost in here" :/

                        Tell me about it! I spent 9 hours on a Saturday night looking for a Feebas in Diamond/Pearl--don't ask how or why but I legitimately counted those hours--only to realize I was in the wrong cave.

                        Though most need not worry about it as you can get this Pokemon from in-game trade or other games much more easily, Beldum in HGSS Safari Zone is worth a mention. Not only is it rare but it also comes with a measly catch rate of 0.3% that you have to use a Safari ball in couple of turns for.

                        Also regarding Feebas... I got very, very lucky and found it around 5th or 6th tile I was looking for. I caught a box full of Feebas as soon as I found that spot.
