Pokemon are now appearing in more locations worldwide in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go players will find more Pokemon in areas where they were previously scarce.

Pokemon in Pokemon Go will now appear in more locations worldwide.

Niantic Labs said Trainers will now encounter the creatures in more places than "ever before," and in areas where they were densely populated, they will be more spread out.

This migration of Pokemon has doubled the number of locations around the world.

"As a result, Trainers might be seeing more Pokemon in places where few Pokemon encounters occurred previously—or even in places where Trainers didn’t encounter Pokemon at all," reads the blog post (thanks, Nintendo Everything).


"This Pokemon migration should help encourage Trainers to get out there and explore, as exploration is one of the core principles that drives everything we do at Niantic."

December’s Pokemon Go Community Day kicked off today and will span two days. Players will have the chance to catch Pokemon from previous Community Day events.
