Default Tips to finding Articuno

So recently I acquired a Sapphire Shard and attached it to my starter and started searching random maps and I have done this for about a whole 24 hours now and I'm posting this because before my search for Moltres and Zapdos only took about 10 minutes for each too to be found. I was wondering if Articuno has a particular map that increases it's spawning. Or am I doing something wrong that hasn't been updated on the wiki? Thanks! Also how rare is the drop rate for a EXP Freeze on Articuno?

Articuno should be found the same way as the other 2. I guess you are just unlucky with the Articuno :s

First tip:Be pateint. Honestly, it's just random. It took me an hour to find one. I also think the odds of dropping exp in the first turn are 1/10th? However, I got mine in the first try. :3

i took 3 days (I wasn't playing 24 hours, I was playing in my free time) to find moltres and i found articuno in a 10-ish minutes. I haven't found zapdos cause I'm triggered by the 3 days :')

Tbh these legnedaries shouldn't be that random or rare to appear. All three birds are relatively easy to get to and the battle isn't really a challenge. The challenge is finding them! I could probably get the shards faster than the pokemon. I just feel given their difficulty I feel the battle should be harder, but discovery rate should be more common or at least uncommon or rare. Rn Articuno is being more scarce than Victini. :/

The drop rate iirc is 10% Spawns are completely random, finding the bird could take 10 minutes or 10 years (a little exaggerated), if you find you're spending too much time and getting super unlucky, you may have more luck trading for one c:

I wish you luck. I have beat him at least 10 times and have not received EXP freeze yet. Beyond frustrating
