Pokémon, also known as Pocket Monsters, are fictional creatures that are central to the Pokémon franchise. Currently, Pokémon GO contains 239 Pokémon, all of the Kanto Pokédex Pokémon plus 88 Pokémon from Johto. They can be obtained by either catching them with a Poké Ball, by hatching an Egg, through Evolution or Raid Battles.
Some of the Pokémon are region-exclusive, which means they can only be caught or hatched in a certain region of the world. These Pokémon are: Farfetch'd (Japan), Kangaskhan (Australia), Mr. Mime (Europe), Tauros (USA), Heracross (South America), and Corsola (equator).
Shiny Pokémon[edit | edit source]
Sometimes players may find a Shiny Magikarp. When evolved it it will become a Shiny Gyarados. This was added with one of the recent updates. If a player catches one, it will only be shiny for them.
