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, we’ve listed where to find each of these regional exclusive Pokémon.

Pokémon Go regional exclusives list

It makes sense that a tropical Pokémon like Tropius is only available in tropical areas and that the kangaroo Pokémon Kangaskhan 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.

  • Farfetch’d: Eastern Asia

Pokémon Go migratory Pokémon list

There are also migratory Pokémon, which swap places during certain times of the year, mostly during events.

  • Seviper: North America, South America, and Africa
  • Zangoose: Europe, Asia, and Australia
  • Solrock: North America, South America, and Africa
  • Lunatone: Europe, Asia, and Australia

Other regional forms in Pokémon Go

Furfrou is not regional, but you do need to go to specific places in the world in order to get specific Furfrou trims. If you’re a form collector, you’ll need to travel to loads of different places to grab all the different trims (or trade).

Vivillon’s forms are also dependent on region, but you can collect various forms just by collecting gifts from players in those regions.

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.
