Boss Pokémon are rare types of Pokémon.
They are stronger and larger than normal Pokémon, and fight more aggressively than normal Pokémon when in battle.
Totems, setted NPC Trainers and the Team Rocket Grunts are also a different type of Bosses.
Bosses are meant to be middle/end-game foes, so stay away from them until you have a good team!

They cannot be captured in any way.

Bosses can spawn in every Biome in Overworld, with the only limitation of the Spawn Location.
They won't depend on their Base form spawn Biomes.
(i.e. Even if a Venusaur can only spawn in Plains, M. Plains, Savanna, Meadow, Grassland and Prairie, a Mega Venusaur Boss will not be limited to those Biomes)

Defeating your first Mega Evolved Boss will let you gain access to a Mega Bracelet, an accessory required to trigger Mega Evolution. Mega Evolved boss Pokémon can also drop the corresponding Mega Stone required for the Pokémon's Mega Evolution.


Boss Pokémon levels are scaled based on the highest-level Pokémon in the player's Party.
They do not display the level above their head (like happens with normal Pokémon), but instead they will display their Rarity.

The rarity will be shown by two different factors:

- The color of the tier above the Boss head (as shown in the table below);
- The shininess of the Pokémon, Legendary and Ultimate tier Bosses will in fact spawn as the shiny variant of the Pokémon.

Bosses will not spawn naturally in their Uncommon and Ultimate varieties, these rarities can only be found if spawned by Spawners or via Commands.
Mega Evolved Bosses will always spawn in the Rare and Legendary varieties.

Uncommon Green 5
Rare Yellow 10
Legendary Red 20

Boss Pokémon can drop several rare items after they are defeated. Many of those are unique and can't be obtained in any other way.
They are also the only source of Mega Stones.

In addition to the drops listed below, boss Pokémon will also drop same items that are dropped by their non-boss equivalent (e.g., a boss Mega Venusaur can drop vines).
