I'm POSITIVE that's true. Pkmn at their final evos have a -33.9% recruit rate, so you can only recruit them if you're Lv90 or higher with a Friend Bow. Pkmn like Kirlia, Charmeleon, and Vibrava, which are all Pkmn in their middle evos, have a -10% recruit rate. Nuf said.

You can't recruit fully evoved pokemon like Gengar or something.I think you can recruit from the dojo Team Hydro(That is what the percentage you got from LilCharles).The second evolved forms (Kadabra,Kirlia) are in the negatives so yes they are hard to recruit.But it is IMPOSSIBLE to recruit fully evolved pokemon.

No, fully evolved Pkmn have .1% if you're Lv90 and up w/ a Friend Bow, but, I guess you can say impossible, since the recruit rate is equal to Keckleon's, but I recruited him tho.
PS:Charles isn't my name, it's Matthew, but my last name starts with a Z.

There are a few exceptions to this; Blastoise, Feraligatr, and Swampert are possible to recruit at -33.9% (as hard as Kecleon) and Tentacruel, Golem, Octillery, Shiftry, and Cradily are possible to recruit at -30% (notice that all of the above are bosses at the Makuhita Dojo). I'm almost positive that all other final evolutions are impossible to recruit so don't waste your time.

I said in my first post you can recruit at the dojo.

I must have missed that :oops:. However you can't recruit at the Dojo but you can recruit the Team Member Boss pokemon found at the Dojo at different places.

EG. Swampert can be recruited at the Western Cave

Are you ABSOLUTELY sure; maybe your brother was lying or just was mistaken :susp:? If he actually did then it must have been a glitch. I know that you cannot recruit pokemon at the Dojo just like how you can't recruit at Purity Forest or Tiny Woods. It is impossible.

Oh yeah. Everyone makes mistakes.

You can't catch them in the Dojo but you can catch them in Western Cave. Feraligatr is 32, Swampert is 37, and Blastoise is 38 when recruited. I wouldn't bother recruiting them though since they have the lowest recruit rate: -33.9%.

You get an additional 20% added to the Recruit chance.

For example, if you wanted to recruit Groudon, who has a -10% chance at base, you would now have a 10% chance of recruiting him.

-19.9%

You need to be a Level +90 with a Friend Bow to recruit it.

They actually are possible but have a base of -33.9 to recruit. So you need a 90+ pokemon with a friend bow for a stunning chance of 0.01.

Flat out, there's a -10% chance of getting him to join your party, and he will not join the first time you fight him no matter what. XD

That doesn't include level bonuses or the friend bow.
