    Default Pokemon rarities

    OK, so in every Pokemon article, it's supposed to say how rare it is next to the locations, right? Like, "common", "uncommon", and "rare", correct? How exactly is that determined? I wanted to go start adding these to some Pokemon articles, but I want to be sure that I know what I'm doing first. My guess would be as follows.

    If the encounter rate is 50% or above, it's "common"

    If the encounter rate is anywhere between 49% and 11%, it's "uncommon"

    If the encounter rate is 10% or lower, it's "rare"

    Am I close?

    With a mustache?

    i think thats a lingering effect on the old days when we didnt have percentages. the dex pages just stayed that way. so to answer your question, no, not with a mustache.

    Those rarities have always bothered me. I think it would be best if that section changed to method. So grass, surfing, fishing, deep sand, gift, roaming, encounter, etc. For the Pokémon that have multiple methods (there are a lot of them), we could modify the template to have multiple rows.
