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.
