One huge limitation to players completing their Pokedex is how a number of Pokemon are Pokemon Go regionals. What this means is that they only appear in certain regions of the real world, so as you'd expect, they can be rather tricky for some players to obtain without flying all over the world. As nice as that would be for Pokemon Go, it's not exactly feasible for most. Here are all of the Pokemon Go regionals in the game as of October 2019. When more Pokemon Go regionals are released, this guide will be updated.
Regional Pokemon Go trading costs
So maybe you aren’t planning on travelling any time soon but your friend has just got back from a round the world trip. The excellent news is that you can absolutely trade regional exclusive Pokemon in Pokemon Go. Here’s how much stardust each trade will cost.
- Good friend - 20,000 stardust
- Great friend - 16,000 stardust
- Ultra friend - 1600 stardust
- Best friend - 800 stardust.
Of course, this does depend on your friendship level to add each others friend codes and share that first gift. As you can see, it absolutely pays to be Ultra or Best friends so holding onto the Pokemon a little longer and building your friendship will definitely save you some stardust.
Catching region exclusive Pokemon in Pokemon Go
Before we get into the specifics, it’s worth noting that regional exclusives in Pokemon Go can arrive on lures and incense, so if you are only going to be in one place and can’t keep an eye on your ‘nearby’ options, consider cracking one or both of these to maximise your chances.
As ever, to increase your chances of catching without anything fleeing, use Razz Berries and Golden Razz Berries, and make sure you are using curveballs and aiming for the smallest possible bullseye. Your Pokedex will thank you.
