There are MANY mysteries in the world of Pokemon, and one I've always wondered about is - "Why are Pokemon Starters so rare?" When you start your Pokemon journey and get to choose your travel buddy, we learn that starters are difficult to find in the wild. Today Austin is going to uncover the secrets of Pokemon starters and why they may be going EXTINCT!

  • Y'know, I have a little theory. Starters are *canonically* endangered. That's why they are the *starters* . It's a worldwide program to promote these Pokemon's survival, by getting you to care about them. By writing them as your partner to end, the professors ensure that their survival never ends.

  • I will say Pokemon Let's Go kinda changed this. You can catch starters out in the wild. Sure you start with either Pikachu or Eevee in these games but you can still catch them as well as Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle (even though you are given 1 of each in the game). The spawn rate is just low, Charmander being the lowest (at least in my game. I haven't actually checked spawn %). Doesn't change the theory really, but it's interesting that Nintendo made changes to the updated 'Gen 1" game (though there were several changes made to the game from the original story so...)

  • Also there is some funny stuff about this, so the pre evolution of that water bunny I forgot it’s name has a 50 50 chance of being male or female but it’s evolution has a 75 25 chance lol so that means your Pokémon can change gender it’s a 1 in 4 chance so every 4 Pokémon of that species is born, 1 of them is going to change gender when it evolves

  • you can find every single Pokemon in Gen 1 games, but it has no link with Bill's house! You need to do these steps: 1: get a Pokemon that you want to do the glitch on (the thing that matters is its Special stat, it translates into different Pokemon, and even Trainers: for example, 31 is Missingno, 152 is Starmie, and 235 is Misty) 2: walk in sight of a max range trainer that doesn't face south and get out by any means necessary (fly, teleport, escape rope or even death) 3: go to fuschia by flying or wrong warping using the PC (or cinnabar in yellow) and encounter ditto. Lead/switch to your test subject, and let ditto transform, then just run away or fight the Ditto (bear in mind that the obtained Pokemon's level will be the opponent's attack modifier, so if you growl it, the result will be a level lower) 4: fly back to the glitch's location, and go back near the trainer that you escaped. Your start menu will pop up, so close it, and suddenly, THE FIGHT BEGINS! (and then just masterball the Pokemon you wanted and you're good)
