Gen VIII Catch Rate Calculator

Other catch rate calculators: Gen I, Gen II, Gen III/IV, Gen V, Gen VI/VII, Gen IX

This tool will calculate your chances of capturing a Pokémon in the eighth-generation games. If you want to know how it works or more about what the results mean, you want the Gen VIII capture mechanics page.

Note that Sword and Shield will not allow you to catch a Pokémon above a certain level determined by the badges you have, as explained here. The calculator will show you the numbers for what happens if you do throw a Pokéball at it; if you can't do that, obviously you can't catch it regardless of what the calculator says.


Approximation of current HP:


Your Pokémon's gender:

You can find this under "Host/Non-Host Catch Rate" on Project Pokémon.

If checked, you will see the results for each possible HP IV if they would yield different results; otherwise, you'll see the overall chance assuming you know nothing about the IV. This is only very meaningful at full or exactly 1 HP, since the approximation of the Pokémon's current HP is not exact.
