Data-miners for the newest code updates to Pokémon GO have discovered that Legendary Pokémon will, unsurprisingly, be rather hard to catch. How hard? They have a 2% base catch rate (before any modifiers like Curve Balls and Golden Razz Berries). For comparison, Tyranitar has a catch rate of around 5%.
Furthermore, if you want to power them up, you’ll still need Candy. To gain a single Candy by having it as your Buddy Pokémon, you’ll have to walk a whole 20 kilometres. It is not yet known if Rare Candies will work on Legendary Pokémon.
What do you think of these settings? Too hard, or maybe even too easy given they are Legendaries?
