    No really, I haven't stumbled upon one single jack and i've been farming for two days (around 100 levels), I even saw a legendary !
    Is it just me ? I could be unlucky...
    Someone else?

    As of right now, I've come across 10 light jacks, caught 9 of them. No dark jacks sadly :cry:

    I spend around 200 energy in Pagos coast and encountered 3 Monas and 2 variants before meeting an evo3 (light) which I could not catch. After that spend another approximate 50 energy without any encounter.
    After reading in the ingame chat a statement that on reddit there is a analysis concluding that best encounter probability is the sanctuary, I gave it a try (on normal).
    After around 5-10 rounds in the sanctuary I encountered a dark evo3 which I could catch this time.
    Not sure yet about the statement about best chance to find a Jack is correct and it is really the star sancturay, but like to share my experience (biased due to anticipation) here. Will let you know if I find more there...

    100 energy used today in the sanctuary without meeting any Jack I would conclude there is nothing special about the chances to meet him there.

    Another 100 energy without any encounter. I tend to think a map where a Jack is found once does not work anymore?!

    I've seen 2, caught 1..... I would think if you were gonna make a serious run at any real quantity of old jacko you should play normal level of whatever stage your capture rate is highest..... And just plan on keeping your energy full by exchanging crystals for energy...... That seems to be what people who want to max out are doing.

    I second what Lostboy is saying. I'm currently at 1400 normal stage runs and 11 Jackos caught (6 failed to catch).

    I feel like unless you get really lucky, you should probably expect to invest some gems in energy refills to be able to evo3 Jacko especially considering you probably won't even catch every Jacko you encounter.

    got my dark jacko as my first sighting and caught him at 2nd try. Caught my first light just a few minutes ago.. but to be fair, i havent been aiming to farm them, i was just power leveling my D kraken but now i'm thinking of farming it :)

    hopefully they'll show up now as i look for them

    Where are you guys finding all your Jacks?
    Why is Phantom Forest the best place to grind? Because they're low levels?
    Or are you guys grinding on "normal" mode?

    I'm doing Star Sanctuary extreme mode and encountered Jack 5 times. 3 caught and 2 fails.
    Over 1100 energy used. This is ridiculous lol

    Around 500 energy spent after last encounter of a dark Jack I met one again in the sanctuary. Strangely immidiatly after selecting a normal level without boosts. I selected it more or less given up to see Jack again soon and rather focussing on looking for a chance to find a variant robot or cosmo altogether there. And what happened? In the first riw the dark pumpkin face showed up right after changing from the gold boost level to a normal type. But guess this is complete random and just a incident. Yes, indeed I tried so many different level that I believe the perceived higher population in certain levels are just hot statistic streaks. The dice does not know what happened before and this leads to either hot or cold streaks. Just a very high number of attempts would show us more details about a rough probability to find a super rare. At the moment I guess the probability is something between 1-2%. Any other ideas or comments about the odds?

    I've seen around 2 people in-game with the 3rd evolution of Jack but they just won't share where they grind or give any tips.
    Me too, I've been searching in gold boost places. Currently spent 330+ energy today (4 times refill) and have NOT SEEN ONE JACK.
    I went to Phantom Forest and Star Sanctuary gold and exp.
    Nothing.

    I'm feeling really discouraged haha

    @Elric - I'll try to grind non-boost stages and see if that works out.
    Have you tried boss stages?
