encounter rate

Postby nkenneth » Wed Aug 29, 2018 11:01 pm

what is the chance of encountering a pokemon instead of saying "Couldn't find anything."
and does the map contribute on that chance??
i got significantly low encounter rates on magma lagoon than in water tiles

it varies roughly with how many pokemon are available on that particular map

its very sad because.. i get encounter 14+ pokes for every 30 steps on grass... while in volcano i only get 7-8 on every 30 on average.. that make some players (including me) be more inclined in going to grass more than volcano...
and am i right to assume that legendaries are more frequent on grass since more pokemon appears there?
maybe you could consider this if ever you have an update. thanks

Say Map A has 10 pokemon, and Map B has 30. It is set up so the chance of finding a specific pokemon is the same. So the spawn rate on Map B will be 3 times as much as on Map A. If Map B throws up one pokemon every 3 steps, chance of finding a specific pokemon is 1/90. To match that, Map A throws up one pokemon every 9 steps to make the chances of finding a specific pokemon 1/90.

That is as simply as I can explain it.
