'Pokmon GO' cheats, tips, tricks: How to catch Dratini, Magnemite, Lapras, Snorlax, Mew, Mewtwo


The widely popular augmented reality game “Pokmon GO” is currently rolling out in different parts of the world. Some players are more than willing to share their secrets on where and how to capture the creatures to help fellow gamers on their journey to become Pokmon masters.

A Reddit user made an updated chart of all the Pokmon based on their rarity and exclusivity known appear in certain areas. It also features those which have not been sighted anywhere in the globe yet and those that are seemed to be found only in specific regions. These apparently include Farfetch’d in Asia, Kangaskhan in Australasia, Mr. Mime in Europe, and Tauros in North America.

According to Heavy, chances of the finding hard-to-catch Pokmon may increase if the users are looking at the right places.

Of the rare kinds of Pokmon, Dratini can sometimes appear in locations associated with water, such as near lakes, rivers, beaches and even parks with a lot of fountains; Magnemite, an Electric/Steel type, can be found in most industrial areas and power plants; Electabuzz can be spotted in urban environments where there is a lot of cables and electric wires; Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee can be found in areas associated with exercise including parks, gyms and stadiums; and Lapras, a combination of Ice and Water type, can be sighted near lakes, beaches and piers, specifically at the Santa Monica Pier in California.

On the other hand, Snorlax and Porygon are deemed to pop up randomly. In order to get them, players can hatch 10km and 5km eggs, respectively.

Meanwhile, the absolute rarest of them all are Mew, Mewtwo, Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno. Although they have yet to be seen, some fans have discovered that they are in the game’s source codes. This has led to speculations that they may appear later on, possibly in special events and tournament gatherings, since the last three are whom the team Valor, Instinct and Mystic are based on.

During a panel in this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Niantic Lab’s CEO John Hanke promised that, “There are a certain set of Pokmon in the game right now. There are some rare ones that haven’t showed up yet that will be showing up.”

“Pokmon GO” is currently available for both iOS and Android devices.
