Pokémon GO: How to Catch Normal-Type Pokémon

Find all the Normal-type Pokémon in the massive world of Pokémon GO.

by Connor Christie


The world of Pokémon GO is overflowing with Normal-type Pokémon, with many friendly faces from the series out in the wild wherever you are. While these plain old Pokémon are probably the easiest to find and most widely available, it still helps to know where to start. In this guide, we’ll break down the best tips and tricks for finding Normal-type Pokémon somewhere near you.

Catching Normal-Type Pokémon in Pokémon GO

Unlike the Water-type or Grass-type, Normal-type spawns are less dependent on location. As a result, you’ll find plenty of the Pokémon you’re looking for in urban, suburban and rural areas. It’s only really the obscure and off-the-beaten-track locations where you’ll be lucky to find any Pokémon, let alone specific types.


With the standard and frequent spawns of Normal-types already active in Niantic‘s AR world, the best way to catch more is by using Lures and Incense Modules. However, due to the sheer amount of Normal-type Pokémon in the game, it’s also worth checking and completing all possible Research Tasks for the occasional wild spawn reward for helping the professor.

There are also a couple of Legendary Normal Pokémon in the game. Regigigas, leader of the Regi type Pokemon, has been available before and might reappear. In addition, Pokémon god and Normal-type Arceus is in Pokémon GO. Though not currently available, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a tie-in event with the forthcoming Pokémon Legends: Arceus release early next year.

That’s everything you need to know about catching Normal-type Pokémon in Pokémon GO. As you might have noticed, this is one of the more accessible types to get your hands on, but if you’re looking for something a bit trickier, check out our Pokémon GO page for all the latest news and other dedicated types guides.
