List of Pokémon by catch rate (GO)
This is a list of Pokémon by capture properties in Pokémon GO. Pokémon with higher base capture rates, more commonly known as catch rates, have a higher probability of being successfully captured by a thrown Poké Ball. Note that the base capture rate value does not entirely determine the probability of capture, but rather is one of several variables used in calculating it. The flee rate is the probability that a wild Pokémon will flee after breaking out of a thrown Poké Ball. Movement type dictates how a wild Pokémon may move around during an encounter and possibly dodge oncoming Poké Balls.
Some species of Pokémon that are never meant to be encountered in the wild, such as Baby Pokémon, are not assigned any catch rates. Mew and Celebi, which are encountered after completing all tasks for a Special Research, are guaranteed to be captured after a certain number of Poké Balls are thrown.
Abra is a Pokémon that will always flee after breaking out of a Poké Ball, akin to how wild Abra always immediately use Teleport in the core series. On the other hand, certain Mythical Pokémon like Mew, Celebi, and Meltan are programmed to never run away.
Due to how catch rates are calculated in Pokémon GO, the base capture rate is nearly equivalent to the probability of capturing a Pokémon at a Power Up level of 14, without any bonus multiplier.
