How to catch Tauros in Pokémon Go
Ordinarily, Tauros is a regional exclusive in North America, where it will spawn in the wild.
It has, however, since its debut in 2016 appeared in various events so other players have had access in their own region.
One such opportunity is during the Tour Kanto event in February 2021, which tasks players with catching all 150 Pokémon within the span of eight days.
At the time of writing, this is the only way to get Tauros before the Raid Collection Challenge deadline on February 28th, 2021 - so be sure to prioritise catching it on the day before the opportunity disappears.
Tauros is currently appearing in raids in North America until Monday, 1st March at 8am (local time). This means if you're lucky enough to have a friend who lives in this region and a Remote Raid pass, then they can invite you to a Tauros raid.
Trainers, Mr. Mime, Kangaskhan, Farfetch'd, and Tauros are now appearing in raids in their respective regions! They will be leaving on March 1, 8AM local time.— Niantic Support (@NianticHelp) February 23, 2021
