Pokémon Go regional exclusives list for 2024 and their locations explained

How to catch each exclusive regional-locked Pokémon.

Pokémon Go regional exclusives tie a handful of Pokémon to specific locations around the globe.

Each new Generation in Pokémon Go has their own regionals - whether it's spawning only in that region, continent or hemisphere or having their forms spread out across the globe, encouraging players to travel and trade to catch 'em all.

Since their release, by and large the creatures have remained locked to their specific regions, except in a handful of special events or regional swaps.

So unless you travel a lot - or have Friends willing to Trade them - you might have to be patient for them to arrive on your shores.

Here on this page we'll run through the entire Pokémon Go regional exclusives list, as well as providing all regional exclusive locations of course, so you can get out and find them.

Pokémon Go regional exclusives map and how regional exclusives work in Pokémon Go

Each generation of Pokémon has several creatures you can only find in specific regions. These can be specific countries (such as the USA's Tauros), entire continents (Europe's Mr. Mime), certain regions (Corsola in the Tropics), the postcards from the region (the various Vivillon patterns) and even 'halves' of the planet (such as Lunatone and Solrock).

Kartana was one of two regional exclusive Ultra Beasts, appearing in raids in the Northern Hemisphere on its debut.Watch on YouTube

These creatures are fairly common spawns in these regions, so if you are visiting for a short period, it won't take long to find them.

Regionals can be found spawning in the wild - so don't expect them in gyms or in nests. From September 2019, regionals have also been made available in Eggs - but only from their respective regions. This is also the only way to get Mime Jr., the Gen 4 pre-evolution to Gen 1's regional exclusive Mr Mime.

December 2022 introduced Scatterbug, Spewa and Vivillon to Pokémon Go, with the selection of Vivillon patterns all being connected to different regions across the world. To earn a Scatterbug encounter, you need to pin a number of postcards sent with Gifts from a specific region and, once caught, this bug can be evolved into a Vivillon with the pattern for that region. To learn more, visit our Vivillon map and pattern guide.

If you don't travel, then don't fret. Gen 3 has shown these creatures can swap round occasionally (such as Zangoose and Seviper) or drop regional exclusivity altogether (Plusle and Minun) and as mentioned above, shift temporarily for special events, such as Farfetch'd during Pokémon Go's 2017 Travel Challenge.
