In Pokémon Go, some Pokémon are exclusive to one country in the world. These are “regional” Pokémon. To capture them, it will be necessary to travel to different countries of the world. Only this way will you be able to complete your Pokédex to 100%.
However, there is an alternative solution: become friends with a foreign player, and exchange his country's regional Pokémon for one of your monsters. From time to time, certain one-off events also allow you to obtain eggs containing regional Pokémon from other countries.
La list of regional Pokémon continues to expand over time. This is the reason why we offer you in this file the complete list of regional Pokémon, regularly updated as well as the countries in which you will have to go to find them.
