Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have been out for about two months, and these games have revolutionized the main series Pokémon play experience.
Tera raids, mass outbreaks, an open-world setting, and wild Pokémon behavior have transformed the Pokémon formula in ways that would have been unexpected just a few games ago. Scarlet and Violet picked up Pokémon that could be found in every previous game.
Players who have been playing the game for a while, or even those just looking for some of their new or old favorites, will have found that some Pokémon are much harder to come by than others. While the list of “rare” Pokémon in this game can be subjective and take a while, we’ve rounded up some of the rarest.
Skeledirge, the Singer-type Pokémon, is a busybody with a caring personality. 🎤🔥
His singing voice, full of vitality, soothes the hearts of the listeners. Enemies who hear it are left with feelings of warmth and fulfillment, losing their will to fight.

In no particular order, these are five of the rarest Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet:
Encountering these new Tauros forms has proven to be very difficult as, like many of the other Pokemon on this list, they will be found in very limited spaces. What makes these two specific forms harder to get compared to the normal Tauros form is that these Pokémon only spawn one in a group of Paldean Tauros.
Iron Valiant (Purple exclusive) and Roaring Moon (Scarlet exclusive) are pseudo-legendary paradoxical Pokémon that only appear in a cave off the beaten path in the Great Crater of Paldea. Only one will spawn and if that one is defeated or caught it will take a while for another to spawn.
This Ghost and Dark-type Pokemon has been hard to hit in every game it has appeared in, but there are very few set locations for a Spiritomb to spawn in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Even then, only one area will spawn there until they respawn, which can take what feels like an eternity.
Dusk Form Lycanroc, one of the three Lycanroc forms available as an evolution of Rockruff, is also the most distinct form, being only found during Dusk in the Northern Province (Area One). This time window is very specific and it can be difficult to get to this area within this time frame with the in-game clock.
Mouse Hold is a new Normal-type Pokémon that evolves from Tandem Mouse upon reaching level 25. It can evolve into either Family of Four or Family of Three variations, and players don’t know which form they’ll get until their tandem mouse evolves. The family of four form is statistically much more likely, with the family of three form having a 1/100 chance of being the one the player gets when evolving their tandem mouse!
Meowscarada, the Magician Pokémon, can plant its pollen-filled flower bombs in a variety of locations and trigger them at a scheduled time.
Using clever deception, it equips enemies with Flower Bombs and sets them off before the enemies realize what’s going on. 🪄🍃

There are many other Pokemon that could be included in this list, but playing the game will reveal that many Pokemon are rare for some and much more common for others.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were released on November 18th.
