Spawn rates and tasks


#1

It seems like the best way to stop running into a particular type of pokemon is to draw a task to catch 3 of 'em. For what seemed like weeks I had oddishes coming out the ears (several dozen per hour, seemingly everywhere I went). As soon as I got the task to get 3 bellsprouts or oddishes, that stopped, and I haven’t seen even one since then.

Not a complaint, just an observation.


#2

Yeah, a rumour I had in my head as well, without pronounciation…


#3

Probably just a coincidence. Because that would mean that you would be affecting OTHER player’s spawns by the quests you complete, as well! They wouldn’t do that.


#4

Your completely shure to see the same spawns as others?

At least lower level players see other spawns than the higher level…


#5

Murphy’s Law for Pokemon GO:
No matter how common it may be, you won’t encounter the Pokémon you’re actually after.


#6

Yes, but each pokestop usually gives out same tasks during certain times a day. When my kids and I spin disc consecutively, we get same task.


#7

Ok I’ll go pidgey, ratta etc hunting


#8

Nope, everyone sees the same spawns. Below level 30 gets different IV’s, but its the same pokemon.
Except if you have a shadow ban. Then you dont see certain pokemon, but you dont see different ones.
