Known Facts:

  • Tauros is considered the “North American” regional Pokémon. However, in reality, it spawns only in southern parts of Canada and most of the continental US.
  •  Pachirisu is already confirmed to be the “Northern regional” and is spawning in places such as Northern Canada, Alaska, and northern regions of Russia.

There is a line where Tauros spawns stop and Pachirisu spawns begin, but where is that line of latitude? As part of the analysis, I will be looking at screenshots of catches of Tauros and Pachirisu from primarily Canada. I will examine the geo-tag on the screenshot (location of where the Pokémon was caught) and put that location into Google.

If there are no screenshots available, I will be looking at posts from The Silph Road Reddit Page regarding the release of Generation 4 regionals (link here) or discussions with local members on Discord. I will get the coordinates of that place, and compare the coordinates with other spawns to see if I can find the line of latitude.

  • Canada is now home to two regionals: Tauros and Pachirisu.
  • Pachirisu spawns begin generally after a latitude of 52° N, which is also where Tauros spawns end.
  • The longitude does not seem to matter, as it is evident that Pachirisu is spawning in the west (Can/US) and the east (Russia).
