If you’re still playing Pokemon Go, you’re probably getting close to catching them all and completing your regional Pokedex. Of course, to do this you need to find all 142 Pokemon in your area, which means you need to track down a few that are very hard to find. We’ve walked you through a few of these already, including where to find Snorlax, Dratini, Abra, and Gastly. Now we’re gonna try to help again with one that was particularly tough for me and a lot of other players. Here’s our guide on where to find Porygon in Pokemon Go.
As usual, here are the caveats. Nobody has access to definite spawn info, so these are all helpful tips, rather than exact locations. Pokemon Go is a very random game, so anything can and will happen. Hopefully these tips help, but don’t take them as gospel, and if you have any help of your own to provide, please do so in the comments.
OK, now the easiest, though still extremely hard way to find a Porygon is to simply hatch him from an egg. Porygon hatches from a 5km egg, which most players are finding to be the most common in Pokemon Go. You’ll probably have to buy a bunch of egg incubators though, because the chance of hatching a Porygon is still extremely low, think sub-5%. I had to hatch over 400 eggs to get a Porygon myself, but a friend hatched his within the first week of the game. It’s totally random, which can be good or bad, depending on your RNG luck.
But where do you find Porygon in the wild? Well, that got a bit easier recently, if you can believe random players on the internet. According to most players, the best place to find a Porygon is near a large, government building. Head to the DMV, or the local court house, or something of that nature, and you might get lucky. As a Normal Type Pokemon, Porygon doesn’t have a specific biome where you might expect to find him, so this is as close to a definite spawn pattern as we’ve seen. Give it a shot, and let us know how it goes.
And that’s all the info there is right now on where to find Porygon in Pokemon Go. It’s only a little to go on, but it’s the best info we have at this time. If anything changes I’ll be sure to update this guide, so check back if you’re still having trouble tracking down your Porygon in Pokemon Go.
