Regional Exclusives map in Pokemon GONiantic

There are loads of regional exclusives in Pokemon Go that can only be caught in specific locations around the world, so here’s a list of every region-locked Pokemon and tips on how to get them all.

Catching ’em all is the name of the game in Pokemon Go. While this often involves taking part in special events or searching different environments like parks and cities, some Pokemon can only be caught in specific regions in the real world.

These are known as regional exclusives, imitating the mainline games like Scarlet & Violet where some rare Pokemon only spawn in specific locations. Each generation has a few region-locked Pokemon, so we’ve listed them all right here.

What are regional exclusive Pokemon in Pokemon Go?

Regional exclusives are Pokemon that can only be found in certain parts of the world. This could be a single country, like Relicanth only appearing in New Zealand and its surrounding islands, or an entire continent, such as Mr Mime spawning across Europe.

Most of these region-locked Pokemon are available as wild spawns in their region, although some of them can also be hatched from Eggs obtained in those regions. Occasionally, regional exclusives will appear outside of their usual locations for limited-time events.

How to get regional exclusives in Pokemon Go

The main way to get regional exclusives in Pokemon Go is to travel to the location that they spawn and search for them yourself, but of course, this isn’t possible for most people as there would be a lot of time and money involved in truly catching ’em all this way!

Another way to get regional exclusives is to trade with a Friend who has visited a location where the Pokemon you want spawns. The main problem with this method is that you can normally only trade with a Friend who’s in the same location as you.

If it’s starting to sound like regional Pokemon are out of your reach, here comes the good news: Many regional Pokemon will eventually appear globally for a limited time during events such as Pokemon Go Fest or the annual Tour events, so keep an eye out!

A good example of this was the recent Pokemon Go Tour: Hoenn event in February 2023, during which Relicanth, Torkoal, and Tropius – who are normally locked to certain regions – could be hatched from 10km Eggs no matter where you were in the world.

One thing that has never appeared globally is region-specific forms like Furfrou trims or Vivillon patterns. This is likely because you can still technically complete your Pokedex without them, as these forms are purely cosmetic variations of the original Pokemon.
