A handful of creatures in Pokémon Go are exclusive to certain regions in the world. Finding these Pokémon means physically traveling to those spots in the real world (or making international friends and trading with them).
In this Pokémon Go regional Pokémon guide lists where to find each of these regional exclusive Pokémon.
It makes sense that a tropical Pokémon like Tropius is only available in tropical areas and that the kangaroo Pokémon is only available in Australia. But the list of regional Pokémon is always growing, and it can be hard to keep track of what you can find where. With help from GamePress, we’ve compiled the list of where to snatch the regional Pokés you might be looking for.

Any Pokémon Go player who wants to catch ‘em all must travel or trade with travelers. In the past, the game has also had events that allowed players to find regional Pokémon outside of their respective areas. So even if you think you’ll never make it to Australia for that Kangaskhan, there’s still hope of completing your Pokédex someday.
