Regional Exclusive Pokémon Are Spawning FAR More Frequently Today Than They Normally Do

Back in my day, regional exclusive Pokémon used to be rare. Hell, in all my time playing the game I’ve encountered exactly 1 Kangaskhan, and even that was from an egg. Up until yesterday, I’d seen a grand total of 0 in the wild. But today? I’ve seen (and caught) 4.

Something very big is happening in Pokémon GO right now. Players from all over the world are reporting that their respective regional exclusive Pokémon are spawning far more frequently today than they usually do, and nobody really knows what’s causing this.

It all started around 7 hours ago, and that’s when the first post was made on the Pokémon GO Dev subreddit. The OP had this to say: “I’m from France, so it’s normal that Mr. Mimes are spawning there, but the spawning rate increased substantially. For now, 36 Mr Mime spawned in less than 2 hours (to give you an idea, I usually get 1 Mr. Mime per day.”

A similar thread appeared shortly after on the The Silph Road subreddit, asking fellow members if they too had experienced a sudden increase in regional exclusive Pokémon spawning in their area. One player replied with this: “There is a heap of them, since the morning in Sydney, Ryde area. Same in Parramatta. Normally they are about as rare as Blastoise/Venusaur.”

There are many other threads on Reddit describing the same phenomenon, as well as countless posts to various Facebook Pokémon GO groups reporting the same thing. It seems that all over the world, regional exclusive Pokémon are spawning far more frequently than normal.

But what is the cause of this? Is it a permanent increase to the spawn rate? Could it be due to a new bug that will (probably) get patched in the next few days? Or is it just a “weekend event”; a way for Niantic to keep us interested in the game while we’re waiting for new features?

Whatever the answer is, one thing’s for sure: Today, while it’s still possible, we need to get out there and catch as many regional exclusive Pokémon as we can, before it’s too late.
