Updating Pokemon section to add better examples of block and upgrade mechanics
TheMany Pokémon are found belowin arethe safari zone with no additional ofteninput impactedneeded by the player. Other Pokémon will only appear if certain block objects are placed inwithin theeach area. For example, Fearow will not appear in the Peak area unless there are five Forest objects placed in the Peak area. SphealSome willPokémon notneed appeartwo intypes theof Peak area until the Peak Watersideblock objects havein been upgraded, because it requires 35 Waterside objects, and each area can only contain 30 objects of each kindorder to start with. Also, Pokémon can need two types of objectsappear. For example, Vigoroth needsrequires both Plains and Forest objects.
The area upgrade mechanic within the safari zone is key to being able to encounter the more rare Pokémon types. For example, to encounter a Bagon within the Swamp area, the player must have unlocked the block capability and received enough notifications from Baoba that both Peak and Forest block items are available for placement. The Swamp area must then be made an active area within the safari zone for 110 days. This quadruples the block score for each forest and plains block placed within it. The player can then place 14 Peak blocks (14*4=56) and 9 Forest blocks (9*4=36), which achieves the required scores of 56 and 35 respectively to enable Bagon.
In all zones, there are 10 encounter slots which give to the Pokémon present a 10% chance to appear. All the Pokémon that appear due to blocks have a 10% chance to appear; however, some Pokémon can be in two slots, which gives them a 20% chance to appear.
