Farfetch’d pops up all over Japan, supporting location theory

Brodie Fogg 22 July 2016 NEWS


Farfetch'd has popped up across Japan, supporting the theory that it's exclusive to Asia.

Region by region, Pokémon GO has slowly conquered the globe over the last week. A lot about the game remains a mystery. We've managed to resolve a lot of these questions, including over 50 basic tips and tricks, what you're expected to do when your battery runs out and what rewards levelling up brings. However, it's becoming more and more apparent that certain Pokémon are region specific. Mr. Mime looks to be exclusive to Western Europe, Kangaskhan to Australia and Tauros to North America.

Farfetch'd, a Pokémon that stupidly carries it's own side dish, is rumoured to be unique to Asia. We have uncovered some data that strongly supports that theory. When we launched our Pokémon GO maps in USA, Austria, Belgium and Australia, Farfetch'd was notably absent. Since creating a Japan map for Pokémon, Gyms and Pokéstops, we've found the fleeting Farfetch'd has appeared in Osaka, Kobe, Yokohama and Tokyo. This supports the aforementioned theory that Farfetch'd can only be found in Asian regions.
