Rarest Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, like every Pokémon game, taps into the collector in all of us. And who doesn’t like to collect the rarest of the rare? While hunting down all Shiny Pokémon is often the end goal of Pokémon collectors, some Pokémon are rare in and of themselves and can make this a difficult goal. Here are the rarest Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.
Which Pokemon are the hardest to find in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?
For the purposes of this article, we’re not including Legendary or Paradoxical Pokemon as they can be assumed to be rare.
Dudunsparce (three segment shape)
While the addition of an evolution for Dunsparce in Generation IX felt like a meme, Dudunsparce has been a fun Pokemon for players to collect, particularly because it has a rare form. Most dunsparces evolve into a two-segment form of dudunsparce, but there is a one in 100 chance, as estimated by Serebii, of dunsparce randomly evolving into a three-segment form. Combine that with the odds of getting a Shiny Pokemon in the first place, and the odds of getting a three-slice Shiny Dudunsparce are probably close to zero.

Maushold (family of three)
Much like Dudunsparce, Maushold has a unique form that it can randomly evolve into, with similar odds estimated at around one in 100. Although the rarest form of Maushold, rather than getting larger, is a family of three as opposed to a family of four. Maushold’s Shiny version is frustratingly beige and hard to spot, so owners of a Shiny Family of Three Maushold have a rare prize indeed.
Polteagiest (Ancient Form)
While from an earlier generation, the ancient form of polteage remains a very rare find. You must first find the ancient form of Sinistea in the wild, which will take time. Again, it is rare, and the only way to tell if a Sinistea is of the ancient form is by a stamp under the cup, which is often not seen. Once you have it, you must give it the Chipped Pot to evolve into Antique Form Polteageist.

Lycanroc (Twilight Form)
Lycanroc has three forms it can evolve into, but the rarest is its twilight form. It requires the Rockruff it evolves from in order to have its own pace ability. Finding this special ability in a Rockruff can be a chore, as it can wait until evening, which is the only time Rockruff can evolve into its twilight form. Fortunately, a Rockruff with the Self Speed ability cannot evolve during the day or night. So once you’ve got the Rockruff you need, all you have to do is level it up and be patient.
Tauros (Blaze Breed and Aqua Breed)
While perhaps not as rare as some of the other Pokemon on this list, the version-specific Paldean forms of Tauros, Blaze Breed, and Aqua Breed, don’t appear nearly as often as the generic Combat Breed. If you’re looking to find one, you’ll generally find a Blaze or Aqua Breed Tauros in the middle of a pack of Combat Breed Tauros. Blaze Breed Tauros is specific to Pokémon Scarlet and Aqua Breed Tauros is specific to Pokémon Violet, so you may need to trade or play with a friend if you don’t have the right version.
