Pokemon Go regionals list: Where to find these exclusive Pokemon

If you’re trying to complete the Pokemon Go Pokedex without any help, then it isn’t going to happen unless you’re a keen traveler. Various species from each generation can only appear in certain regions across the world. These are known as regional exclusives.

If you really are going to complete the Pokemon Go Pokedex by yourself then traveling is your only option. However, there is another method, which is getting those regionals by trading.

This, of course, does cost precious Stardust. If you are going to get them via trading, then try and make sure you’re Best Friends or live close to each other, as this will give you a big discount.

Special regional events

Sometimes Niantic creates Pokemon Go events that let you catch previous unobtainable regional exclusives. These events are only temporary however.

For example, the Gen 1 regional exclusives could all be found in eggs as part of the second week of the Ultra Bonus Rewards from GO Fest 2019. There are other examples too, and there will almost certainly be future opportunities as well.

List of all regional exclusives

For the moment though, some Pokemon can only be found in certain regions. The full list of these, divided by Pokemon generation, is as follows:

Kanto exclusives

  • Tauros – North America
  • Mr Mime – Europe
  • Kangaskhan – Australia
  • Farfetch’d – Eastern Asia
Pokemon Go Regional Gen 1
Gen 1 regionals have been made available all over the world in special Pokemon Go events…

  • Heracross – South and Central America
  • Corsola – Near the equator

Hoenn exclusives

  • Torkoal – India and South Asia
  • Zangoose – Europe, Asia, and Australia
  • Seviper – North America, South America, and Africa
  • Solrock – North America, South America, and Africa
  • Lunatone – Europe, Asia and Australia
  • Relicanth – New Zealand and surrounding areas
  • Illumise – Europe, Asia, and Australia
  • Volbeat – North America, South America, and Africa
  • Tropius – Africa

Sinnoh exclusives

  • Pachirisu – Alaska, Canada and Russia
  • Shellos – East of Prime Meridian Pink, West of Prime Meridian Blue
  • Chatot – Southern Hemisphere
  • Carnivine – Southeast US
  • Uxie – North America, South America, and Greenland

  • Throh – North America, South America, and Africa
  • Sawk – Europe, Asia, and Oceania
  • Basculin – Eastern Hemisphere Red, Western Hemisphere Blue
  • Maractus – Central America, South America, and the Caribbean

These can change at anytime but for the moment the above are regional exclusive Pokemon. Alternative, if you really don’t want to wait for events or trade with other Pokemon Go players, you can just transfer them over from another Pokemon game via Pokemon HOME!


When is CodeMiko back on Twitch? Virtual streamer plans custom Pokemon game after ban

Twitch sensation CodeMiko has revealed when she will return after being banned for the third time, and she’s got plans for a custom streamer-baed version of Pokemon. 

Twitch streamers are always looking for a way to stand out from the crowd, so, some go above and beyond when it comes to production value – giving themselves a set to work with as they play games or chat with viewers.

In the case of CodeMiko, she’s taken things up a notch with her virtual streamer character – gaining over 300,000 followers in less than a month. 

She was banned from Twitch for the third time, however, on January 19 – with viewers being left to speculate as to the reason why and just how long she’d be suspended from streaming.

When is CodeMiko returning back to Twitch?

On January 23, the streamer explained that she wasn’t banned for using the word simp or being drunk on stream as some viewers had speculated. Instead, she was banned for leaking a streamer’s private information.

“Guys, I didn’t get a suspension because I was discussing harassment, but for accidentally leaking someone’s email that contained a first and last name. It was an overlook on my part. Although it was an accident, it was still my mistake,” she tweeted, alongside a Twitlonger about the ban.

On top of that, though, CodeMiko did reveal that she’ll be returning to streaming on Friday, February 5 at 12 pm PST/3 pm EST/8 pm GMT/9 pm CET. 

CodeMiko teases Twitch streamer-themed Pokemon game

While she will likely return to continue her interview streams – bringing on different content creators for a chat about a whole range of things – the streamer also has other plans too.

“Hey guys, currently creating a streamer Pokemon game,” she tweeted, asking if any streamers wanted to get involved and be used as Pokemon so she could catch ‘em all. 

It wouldn’t be the first time Twitch has seen such a custom game, mind. Disgraced streamer Fedmyster played a similar game back in June of 2020 using streamers like Myth, Sodapoppin, and xQc as trainers. 

There’s no telling if her Pokemon plans will be in place for her return, though, plenty of streamers have registered their interest.

We’ll just have to wait and see what Miko brings out when she returns in early February. It’s sure to be interesting, regardless.
