What are regional exclusives in Pokemon Go?
Regional exclusives in Pokemon Go are Pokemon that can only be found in certain regions of the world. Some of these creatures might be exclusive to a single country, like the recently added Hawlucha in Mexico, or an entire continent, like Mr. Mime in Europe.
These regional exclusives are usually wild spawns, but they can also hatch from eggs obtained in those regions as well. Some big Pokemon Go events, like Go Fest or Go Tour, also allow players to catch these region-locked Pokemon in other parts of the world for a limited time.

It’s also worth noting that all Furfrou, Flabébé, and Oricorio share the same number in the Pokedex, so the differences between each version or style have to do with their typing and look.
How to get regional exclusives in Pokemon Go
Since you can only find regional exclusive Pokemon in specific parts of the world, the main way to get them is by traveling to those real-life places. Of course, nobody expects you to travel the whole world to achieve that goal, and you have other options.
The most popular one is trading with friends that visited other parts of the world, but there’s a catch as you can only trade with friends that are less than 100 meters away.
Not all hope is lost though. Pokemon Go‘s biggest events usually give players a chance at catching or hatching regional exclusives for a limited period of time. For example, Pokemon Go Tour: Hoenn let players all around the world hatch Relicanth, Torkoal, and Tropius from 10 Km Eggs in February 2023.
Many players expect the same will happen in the next Pokemon Go Fest event, so keep an eye out for official announcements.
