Encounter rates for wild pokemon:

  • There is an encounter rate boost when mining of x1.25, this is for all Rocks except Dark and Rainbow. 
  • There is an encounter rate boost of x2 when mining a Dark Rock.
  • There is an encounter rate boost of x4 when mining a Rainbow Rock.

Notes

When mining, you may sometimes get two gemstones instead of one. When two gemstones are mined at once, the EXP gain doubles as well.

The chances varies by the Pickaxe quality:

  • Old Pickaxe: 0%
  • Good Pickaxe: 1%
  • Super Pickaxe: 5%
  • Steel Pickaxe: 10%
  • Master Pickaxe: 15%

Gold Rush

All rocks (except Rainbows) have a small chance to respawn as a Gold Rock, which always gives a Gold Gemstone and extra experience. Every 6-12 hours, a Gold Rush will start on a certain random area, similar to swarms. During Gold Rush, all rocks in the area have a very high chance to spawn as Gold. Said Gold Rushes last for one hour. To know when a Gold Rush is active, check the top left of the game, under the Blessings announcements.
