#7490 Yesterday i found a boss Magnemite. It had a yellow name so if Jack_Attack12 is correct it was the semi-most rare one. It seemed noticeably bigger than the normal ones and it had the lvl of 32, whilst the normal ones seem to be between 10 - 15.
It was very hard to catch, with half it's hp pool left i wasted half a stack of ultra balls. It seemed stronger than usual but not strong enough to compete with a pokemon that was around lvl 40.
I wasn't able to catch it and study it further since my game crashed and when i logged back in it despawned.
Bosses are extremely rare. After around 3 days of active playing in 2.0 this is the first one i have encountered.

Do they maintain higher stat growth over regular pokemon?

you can catch them yes, i would kill them though to get the rare drop (unless you still get it when you catch it but i doubt it) and their stats are normal from my knowledge

#7860 Today i found another boss magnemite with yellow text by the same location as the one that despawned. This makes me believe that they have fixed spawn locations and aren't purely random. I also found a ekans with a blue name, although the amount of minor mobs in the same evolutionary chain surrounding it was very few. This makes me believe: "The higher tier boss, the more minor mob spawns around it".
