Pokémon GO Tips: How to Get Electabuzz, Jinx, Lapras, Magmar, Scyther, Aerodactyl, Kabuto, Kabutops, Omastar and Omanyte

We’ve got more Pokémon GO tips and tricks if you’re looking for help finding specific rares, or if you’re tired of catching yet another Pidgey or yet another Rattata. Yes, you’re going to bump into those two, as well as a few other commons, more often than most other Pokémon, and finding duplicates is always good for additional Candy, and more evolutions as a result of said Candy. But at the end of the day, it’s far more satisfying to collect a Rare Pokémon or better. Previously, we gave you some general tips on how to find these Pokémon, and also provided some specific strategies for certain rarities in the Pokémon universe. We’re going to give you more of the latter in just a bit.

Just what are we going to talk you through in this new Pokémon GO strategy guide? First, we shall be dealing with some of the more powerful, more effective rares from the original Pokémon games, namely Electabuzz, Jinx, Lapras, Magmar, and Scyther. And since talking about five rares may not be enough, we shall be moving on to the Fossil Pokémon, namely Aerodactyl, Kabuto/Kabutops, and Omanyte/Omastar.

How To Get Original Pokémon Rares

How To Get Electabuzz

Forget the seeming lack of “r” in this character’s name. Electabuzz is still what you think he is – an electric type Pokémon. And since electric types are more common on school campuses or nearby, you should have an easier time finding one if you’re a student…or possibly a teacher. You can also find Electabuzz in places that are paved, including industrial parks and shopping malls. For the latter, you’ll want to do most of your hunting by cell phone stores or electronics stores. Additionally, you can get an Electabuzz by hatching a 10km egg.

How To Get Jinx

Jinx is one of those Pokémon with two types – in this case, Jinx is an ice and psychic type. For the former type, you can use that clue to conclude that he’s more common in icy and snowy parts of the world. He can also be found on wetlands and on the grass, so there’s no need to fret if you live in a warmer country or don’t have any snow or winter months to speak of. As a psychic type, Jinx is also partial toward farms, grasslands, and hospitals, and can sometimes be found on the beach. When all else fails, you can hatch Jinx from a 10km egg, and do all the necessary processes to make sure that 10k egg hatches faster.

How To Get Lapras

Among the select group of original Pokémon rares we shall be discussing, Lapras is one of the rarest. But finding a Lapras always pays off, as many consider him to be the top attacker in the franchise. He also has one of the highest CP ratings out there, so finding a Lapras should make you quite formidable in the gym battles. Typically, you can find Lapras near lakes, rivers, beaches, and other sources of water, and your chances of finding one go up as you level up in the game. And while Lapras isn’t necessary a regional rare, he is also an ice type, which means the chances of finding him go down if you live in a warm area; he’s far more common in countries with colder weather. Still, that doesn’t mean you won’t find Lapras in grassy areas, and that doesn’t mean either you won’t find him in the eggs; commonly, he hatches from 10km eggs.

How To Get Magmar

Conversely, Magmar is a fire type, thus making him rare in icy weather, but more common in dryer and hotter parts of the world. If you live in California, for instance, then you can expect a better chance of catching a Magmar. Likewise, there’s a chance you’ll find Magmar hatching from a 10km egg, so keep on hatching those eggs, as they’re always a great way to add to your rares.

How To Get Scyther

Like Jinx, Scyther is a dual-type Pokémon; this time, though, he’s a bug and flying type. Given that real-life bugs do often fly, you can find them in common locations such as grassy areas and wooded areas. Try looking for Scyther on a golf course, at your nearest park, or at farms, forests, and the woods. Like the others, you can hatch 10km eggs in hopes of getting a Scyther, and since this Pokémon can be more common at the park, you can also go there, especially if there are countless Pokéstops and opportunities to drop lures.

How To Get Fossil Pokémon

How To Get Aerodactyl

Aerodactyl, as the name suggests, is partly a flying type, which means you can see it appearing in parks or in forests. But it also shows up on land, particularly in desert locations, farms, and combining the two, farms that are located in the desert. These are rare, but not that rare, though if you live in an area that doesn’t have too many of the above mentioned spots, you can try your luck by hatching a 10km egg.

How To Get Kabuto Or Kabutops

There have been quite a few sightings of Kabuto near bodies of water, including rivers, beaches, lakes, and other similar sources. That’s a bit strange as it’s a rock type, meaning you can also expect to see it near deserts, or near farmlands. You can also see Kabuto most commonly in the evening, and not in the daytime. You can also get Kabuto by hatching a 10km egg, which applies to most of the other rares in this strategy guide.

Kabuto’s evolution Kabutops is quite rare as a standalone Pokémon to catch, and you are going to need to drop a lure module in the nighttime, doing so by a water source with PokéStops. Even then, that’s not a rock-solid guarantee that your efforts will result in a Kabutops showing up. There’s also the old-fashioned way of catching multiple Kabutos, getting their Candy, and evolving your Kabutos into Kabutopses.

How To Get Omanyte Or Omastar

Fortunately for you players, Omanyte is rare, but not extremely rare. Its being a water type also allows you to hunt for it by the ocean, and on the beach, for instance. And it’s also a dual-type Pokémon, being a water and rock type in one; taking its being a rock type into account, deserts and farmlands are good places to look. They’re also common sights among rares when hatched from a 10km egg.

While Omastar is a water type that can be found near a water source, the problem here for most gamers is that this is a Very Rare Pokémon, based on most listings. They’re also likely to appear at Pokéstops with multiple individual stops that have lure modules. You can also hatch multiple Omanytes, convert your extras into Omanyte Candy, and evolve the target Omanytes into Omastars.
