Wild Pokémon rarity

I was using Harrison's GSC Wild Pokémon Editor for changing available pokemon on routes. But I had this feeling that some Pokemon are encountered more often than others. So I made such experiment:

After 36 battles, the lvl 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Hoothoots fought me respectively 8, 10, 8, 8, 0, 1, 1 times.
Then, I changed the order of their levels in Editor so the Hoothoot lvl 1 was on the top of the list and lvl 7 was on the bottom.
After 34 battles, I fought lvl 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Hoothoots 0, 1, 2, 3, 9, 8, 11 times.
The conclusion to me is that the pokemon on the bottom of the list in Editor are more rare.

I didn't find any bytes at 2B378-2B3A6 (Route 30 wild pokemon bank) which could indicate rarity for Route 30 (I do not mean the encounter rate)

1) Can anyone tell me, if this "order" of rarity is same to every map, or 2) each map has its individual pokemon rarities? Where to edit these rarities (or at least, what are their constant values in case 1) is true)?
And except for that, does every pokemon have individual rarity value (I guess not)?

Re: Wild Pokémon rarity

Thanks for reply, you gave me a nice clue... I'm going to check rates of pokemon of different routes on Bulbapedia and then compare them with lists in Pokemon Editor

Re: Wild Pokémon rarity

It seems that the rarity rates for pokemon are (in percent): 30/30/20/10/5/4/1. That sums up to 100%. I based this conclusion only on Bulbapedia, I didn't dig into data of the game. It would be nice if someone confirmed this.

Is this correct? Makes sense, but can someone confirm it? And in case of some routes where are less than 7 entries for wild pokemon, does the order of rarity (less rare on top, more rare on bottom) stays the same?
