In Pokémon Go, walking and traveling are important components. As a way to promote traveling in Pokémon Go, they made certain Pokemons only available in some specific regions. It can be an island, a country, a continent or subcontinent, or even coastlines around the equator. To find these regions’ exclusive Pokémon, the player needs to go there.

Rise of Gen 6 Pokémon

With Niantic releasing more Pokémon across the globe, some Pokémon have proven to be harder to locate. These are scattered around the globe. Thus, the dedicated trainers need to travel to locate these regional exclusive Pokémon. The pandemic has also made meeting trainers from different countries more challenging. As a result, obtaining regional Pokémon is not as simple as it used to be.
