Regional Pokémon are a thorn in the side of all monster collectors in Pokémon GO – this guide shows you where you can find all the hidden creatures in 2022.

Pokémon GO: regional and location

The Pokédex is an ever-expanding compendium of all existing pocket monsters – filling it is the end goal and ambition of every trainer in Pokémon GO, as in all the mainline games of the series. In the main games, there are version-exclusive Pokémon that can only be obtained by trading with the owner of the other edition. In Pokémon GO there is a different restriction – a regional one.
If there are no wild kangaroos in Germany, why should it be any different with Kangaskhan? At the same time, you can hardly expect a monster named Tropius to actually live in Northern Europe. In short, some Pokémon only exist in certain regions of the world – these are called regional Pokémon.

To catch them, you either have to travel to these places yourself or trade with someone who has visited them. Sometimes events remove the regional restriction and the exclusive Pokémon appear worldwide in raids or eggs, but this rarely happens.
Currently, there are a total of 36 regional Pokémon in Pokémon GO – here are all their locations.
