Pokémon Go player defies odds with lucky hatchling

Gaston Cooney

A Pokémon Go player stunned everyone by bringing out Hondo (IV 100) for one of the rarest and most sought-after Pokémon in the game, a feat that only a few lucky trainers have achieved.

Adding all available Pokémon to the Pokédex is not easy for Pokémon Go players, as some species can only be obtained by hatching eggs. It gets even more complicated because these egg-exclusive Pokémon are often metagame relevant, making them excellent for PvP and PvE battles.

The trainer, named “SpumScum” on Reddit, shared a screenshot of Pyronille IV 100 spawning in Pokémon Go and wrote: “What are the chances? I think I win.”

The extremely rare hatching stunned many Pokémon Go fans who joined the comments section to praise the perfect stats.

Others called the hatching “ridiculous” as they celebrated the author's “crazy luck” for not only getting the ultra-rare Pokemon, but also an IV of 100 to top it all off, like what he said: “Damn, I can't even hatch one and you have Hondo?! Jealousy and curses.”

As one player mentioned, it took him “600 hatches to get one [Pyronille]”Others have pointed out that the chance of Peronella hatching from eggs in Pokémon Go is less than 1%, making Hondo even more rare and impressive.

One user did the math and revealed that the opportunities are there “1/21600 for the Hondo Peronella specifically”leaving others dumbfounded by the absurdity of scarcity.

It should be noted that Peronil cannot be found in the wild or in raids, and can only be obtained from within 2km, 5km and 10km of eggs, and is the rarest of the possible hatching pool. Additionally, Pyronille requires at least 400 candies to evolve into Pyrax, one of the best Bug and Fire-type Pokémon.

Meanwhile, you can also take a look at how to get other extremely rare species in Pokémon Go like Frigodo and Zygarde.
