It was thought that there were four region-exclusive Pokemon in Pokemon GO. It seems this is not the case.

Since Pokemon GO was officially released, it was thought that Mr. Mime, Taurus, Farfetch’d, and Kangaskhan could only be found in Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia, respectively. However, this train of thought seems to have been proven wrong, as some players have managed to hatch these Pokemon from eggs.

BBC News has spoken to Sam Clark from the U.K., who has caught 143 of the available 145 Pokemon, including Taurus, who was thought to be exclusive to North America, by hatching it from an egg. Eurogamer has spoken to a California-based player who has captured all 145 Pokemon, including those that were thought to be region-exclusive by hatching them from eggs.

The only Pokemon left to be found in Pokemon GO are Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Ditto, Mewtwo, and Mew.

A device meant to compliment Pokemon GO, called the GO Plus, is set to release later this year. The GO Plus is a Bluetooth device that is worn on the wrist, and will glow and vibrate when the player is near PokeStops and Pokemon. It can also be used to collect items and catch Pokemon already in the Pokedex without requiring players to pull out their phones. The device was supposed to release in July, but was recently pushed back into September.

Pokemon Go is available on iOS and Android devices.
