Regional Pokemon are difficult to get in Pokemon Go, and many players don’t know their locations in the mobile game. So here’s a list of every region-exclusive Pokemon Go species and where to find them around the world.

In the quest to catch ’em all in Pokemon Go, the community is often left with gaps in their PokeDex due to many Pokemon being region-locked.

These specific Pocket Monsters are found in different parts of the world, and knowing their real-life locations is essential to register them in the Pokedex.

To help you find these elusive species, here is a complete list of all regional exclusives in Pokemon Go, as well as their locations, to try and capture them as soon as possible.

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 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 also allow players to catch these region-locked Pokemon in other parts of the world for a limited time.

Some of these Pokemon have expanded their locations over time, while others have had theirs changed many times since Pokemon Go came out, giving players in other regions a chance to catch them.

It’s also worth noting that all Furfrou, Flabebe, 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, the February 2024 Raid schedule includes Mega Latios and Mega Latias from January 31 until February 15, giving players an excellent opportunity to catch Latias and Latios no matter which hemisphere they’re on. Also, all Oricorio variants will be boosted in their respective regions during the upcoming Carnival of Love Event.
