GO Fest 2019 Map
|Buckingham Fountain Spawns|
Buckingham Fountain is featuring Water-type Pokémon and is giving an emphasis upon starters. If you wish to encounter some Shiny Pokémon like Lotad, Horsea, Psyduck, Wailmer, and more, or would simply like to prepare for future Community Day events, you should really dive into this spot.
|Spooky Woods Spawns|
Spooky Woods is featuring Ghost-type and Dark-type Pokémon while also including a few Poison-type Pokémon. If you wish to encounter some Shiny Pokémon like Duskull, Houndour, Drifloon, Shuppet, and more, then this is the best biome for you to lurk.
|Winter Forest Spawns|
Winter Forest is featuring Ice-type and is giving an emphasis on upon more “woodsy” Pokémon. If you wish to encounter some Shiny Pokémon like Buneary, Pinecro, Snorunt, Lapras, and more, then you should take some time and cool down at this biome.
|Sandy Desert Spawns|
Sandy Desert is featuring Rock-type and Ground-type Pokémon. If you wish to encounter some Shiny Pokémon like Larvitar, Geodude, Sandshrew, Aron, and more, then grab your sunscreen and get ready to fight off the sun.
|Fairy Garden Spawns|
Fairy Garden is featuring Fairy-type and is giving an emphasis on upon more “fantasy” Pokémon. If you wish to encounter some Shiny Pokémon like Luvdisc, Caterpie, Swablu, Snubbull, and more, then grab your sunscreen and get ready to fight off the sun.
*Eevee is encountered in its limited Flower Crown form
|Grant Park (All Biomes/Locations) Spawns|
The entirety of Grant Park is featuring Unown, Pikachu, and Pachirisu.
*Pikachu is encountered in its limited Flower Crown form / Unown forms available are ‘W,A,K,E,U,P’, and ‘!’
Before heading off to the location of the Pokémon you are searching for, consider a few things; Grant Park’s GO Fest is hosting many Pokéstops, because of this and the limited area, many Pokémon from specific biomes will cross over to other biomes. The list above isn’t strictly saying that those Pokémon shall only be found in their respective biomes, but that their spawn rates are considered higher in said biomes.
Please note that this list may be incomplete, as there is no strict guide up until now outlining the location of many Pokémon spawns that have been reported from the event.
Have fun, and stay safe, Trainers!
