Do you think Mawile and Absol should be available in wild in the future?

    Self-explanatory.

    These two Raid-only Pokémon has never been spawned in wild, but Mawile's counterpart, Sableye, has been spawned in wild for a while since Halloween event.

    Do you have opinion on when and why should Absol and Mawile should appear as wild Pokémon?

    I suspect these two are going to be Gen III Raid staples. But as soon as Gen IV is released, I guess they'll get rotated out of Raids and become available in the wild, with some new Gen IV Pokemon taking their place.

    Maybe. But what Pokémon do you think will replace them in raids, then?

    But personally, I would want to see Absol as Field Research rewards. Battling it alone is very disgusting for me.

    Not sure. Probably some other non-evolving species introduced in Gen IV.

    That would also be a nice way to include them in the future, if they absolutely don't want to release them wild.

    Would you mind Pachirisu, Carnivine, Spiritomb or Rotom be Raids-only?

    Spiritomb and Rotom are quite likely, considering they are special encounters and you can't just find them in the wild.
    Pachirisu I seriously doubt, it's analog to Plusle/Minun if anything. Carnivine seems like a possible wild encounter too.

    I'd be happy if they included Mawile and Absol in eggs. I'm pretty sure that Sableye is still available to hatch, although I don't know why they put it within the ten kilometer egg group. I like the idea of Absol being a Field Research reward too. I haven't been able to find a Mawile Raid Boss yet, but I would be able to beat it and capture it most likely. Since Absol is at a higher level, I'd have a pretty hard time defeating it alone.

    Sableye is also available in the wild, and if I remember correctly, it's down to 5km Eggs now.
    Absol is absolutely not soloable, under any circumstances, as all Level 4 Raids. It has been tried with maxxed out perfect Machamp in Cloudy and the best said player can do is to drop its health bar to red in the given time. It is the easiest Level 4 Raid Boss to 2-man, however.
