So how do you get Ekans or Arbok?

#1BridgemanzPosted 10/28/2013 4:03:40 AM
I've spent at least thirty minutes cruising through the grass on Route 19, no Arbok. I've used at least two dozens of Honey when it finally wasn't raining on Route 14, no Ekans hordes. Just Bellsprout and Skorupi, every single time.

I tried GTS, but naturally people only want to trade them for Yveltal, Xerneas, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, or Feebas.

So anyone tips on how to get them? Or are they just really this rare and am I looking at a few days of mindlessly running through the grass?

Got mine there, sweet scent pokes are your friend. But yes, it does take forever.

Unfortunately, yes they are rare. I'll hunt quickly, got nothing better to do. I'll post my FC if I find one for you.

Alright, I guess I'll keep trying.

I used sweet scent in the grass on route 14, did take me forever, but I've finally met one ekans horde.

Have been breeding them so if anyone want, just send me PM with you're Friend Code and I can trade you one. Male or female, you're choice ! :)

You could also use the GTS. I put up a Shinx and asked for an Arbok. Ten minutes later, I had a Arbok. So far, Shinxes and Vulpixes have gotten me everything I asked for, except legendaries (didn't try).

Hah, I literally just bred an Ekans for dex data so I was gonna offer to give it away, but I was beaten to the punch ;P

It takes a while but just keep using Sweet Scent and stay at it.
