Pokémon Go region exclusives – how to catch Tauros, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Farfetch’d
Pokémon Go features all 151 of the original Pokédex, from Bulbasaur right through to Mew and Mewtwo. But whilst we have a pretty good idea of where to find those Legendaries, including Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres – and Ditto – some Pokémon remain elusive.
Tauros, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime and Farfetch’d are the Pokémon in question, and the prevailing thought now is that these four are region-locked to specific locations. That’s because whilst all of those four Pokémon make an appearance in datamining efforts – which also uncovered a great deal more about the Pokémon Go’s hidden mechanics – actual encounters with these Pokémon four in the wild seem to be incredibly rare.
How to catch Tauros, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Farfetch’d in Pokémon Go
We’ve put together a table below with everything we know on the region exclusive Pokémon, including where abouts within their respective regions you can hope to catch one.
|Tauros||North America||Normal||Generally everywhere, some reports of it appearing in expansive, desert-like or rodeo-related areas||The general word is that this includes all of North America, but whether or not it appears in South American countries is still up for debate.|
|Kangaskhan||Australasia||Normal||Generally everywhere, with reports indicating it’s appearing in cities and parks in particular||There’s some debate here over whether Kangaskhan is exclusive to just Australia, or Australasia as a whole, with some differing anecdotal chatter from people in New Zealand.|
|Mr. Mime||Europe||Psychic/Fairy||Generally everywhere, including city centres like London||Yes, the UK still counts as being in Europe; we voted out of the EU, not the continent.|
|Farfetch’d||Asia||Normal/Flying||Generally everywhere, being a normal type. Reports of Farfetch’d appearing in city centres and parks in particular, likely due to its part Flying typing.||Japan and South Korea seem to be particularly abundant places. There are some pretty large numbers of people reporting Farfetch’d appearing en masse in Japan since their servers went live. It’s not clear at this point if the entirety of Asia will be benefitting from the same kind of numbers.|
