It’s best to look for Pokémon near their habitat. For example, if you’re on the beach or at a pier, you’re likely to find Water-type Pokémon. However, if you’re in a desert climate, you would be much less likely to find Water-type Pokémon.
You can see the kinds of Pokémon that might be found near your current location by using the Nearby feature. Note that Pokémon already in your Pokédex will appear in color, while those not in your Pokédex will be grayed out.
Collaborate with other Trainers to find out exactly where certain Pokémon have been found!
