Introducing Pokemon GO Catch chance calculator

Hey trainers!

We’d like to take this time to introduce this newly built and deployed Catch chance calculator. It’s a shiny new piece of tech that helps you understand what chance you have at catching a certain Pokemon.

Let’s get technical a bit. The calculator uses the GUCT formula discovered by researchers at Gamepress. GUCT stands for Grand Unified Catch Theory and it encompasses everything we know about catching mechanics in Pokemon GO.

Catch bonus calculator

As you may read elsewhere, Pokemon GO catching bonuses like Curveball, Throws, different kind of balls and medals, have a lot of influence while catching.

Fundamentally, they grant you a percentage chance to throw a second hidden Poke ball at your target. We managed to devise a formula that converts that chance in a flat increase, which is more understandable for many players.

This calculator is the prime example of this formula, showing off how various throw and medal bonuses increase the chance to catch a Pokemon.

This is the example output you can get from the calculator:

Ball

Normal

Nice

Great

Excellent

Ultra Ball

20.43%

20.95%

22.06%

23.03%

Poke Ball

18.44%

18.76%

19.48%

20.16%

Great Ball

19.48%

19.92%

20.87%

21.72%

You can use the calculator to check how likely you are to catch a Pokemon at your Level. We have some nifty configuration options also:

  • Activate Curveball
  • Use Berry
  • Set Medal Bonus

Obviously we are very excited to show you this tool.

There were previous attempts at building a Catch calculator, namely at PokeAssistant and similar sites, but this is the first Catch chance calculator that uses the correct formulas and probability.
