Pokemon GO players think the newer Pokemon are too hard to catch

As Pokemon GO is evolving, a window opens for new Pokemon to arrive in our blissful Pokemon world. Catching Pokemon is easy, but are the new ones easy too?

Many players feel that the Pokemon that have recently joined Pokemon GO are actually hard to catch, in comparison to older Pokemon, with higher CP. I also witnessed of this when a Fuecoco with low CP managed to escape my PokeBalls at least two times. To be honest, it was infuriating.

Some even say that Niantic secretly lowers the catch rates of the Pokemon, especially after they hid all the catch and flee rates from dataminers. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is true though. It really is annoying to players that play the game everyday. Almost all of us struggle to catch Sprigatito or Quaxly, while a glance is enough when it comes to catching “older” Pokemon.

Have you noticed this? What Pokemon are you struggling to catch? Tell us in the comments below.
