@vorgriff3 That’s a fair point, but since the majority of the depicted catches were in Raid Battles, the impact of taking out the Field Research Encounters minimally affects the overall ratio, really. Truthfully, aside from the Birds and Beasts, I only caught two or three of Lugia or Ho-Oh, and only one Regice and one Regirock outside of Raid Battles.
The ones most effected would be the Beasts as I didn’t have much of a chance to catch them in raids at the time. Here are their stats:
Raikou: 2/3 (66.7%)
Entei: 2/5 (40%)
Suicune: 5/8 (62.5%)
The birds are trickier to track, as they were out a total of three times, but I can make a slightly rough guess based on how many videos I have of them, in addition to my memory of what the stats were before the special event days last summer–and I pride myself in having an excellent memory, especially with math. Based on that, here are their stats.
Articuno: 20/22 (90.9%)
Zapdos: 30/38 (78.9%)
Moltres: 16/24 (66.7%)
Take away about three of each for Lugia and Ho-Oh, the one each from Regirock and Regice, and you get the following total catch rate for all Legendaries/Mythicals:
Total: 556/629 (88.4%)
As you see, it didn’t even affect it a full percentage point. While this difference might not hold true for anyone else on here, it holds true for my statistics keeping. Overall, since the difference is so miniscule in overall ratio, I often overlook it. I traded for a Legendary only once as well, and that was taken into consideration and removed.
For everyone else, I really don’t care how you present your stats, as long as it’s accurate to your Pokedex and your considerations about it. If anything, this is a great place to brag about how many of a certain Legendary you’ve caught.
