Thanks to Pokemon GO players that have been researching and collecting data from the very day the mobile game has been released, hoping they would understand the spawn patterns and nests timers, they came up with some interesting things for the fanbase.
Even after the full year release, they still find and learn impressive things from the community data every day. The most current Pokemon GO discovery is a data gathering that suggests a certain list of species have a decreased spawn rate during daylight.
So far we know that Pokemon have a rotating timer for spawn nests, but the rest of the details are presumed to be leaned on speculations and interpretations of the user’s gathered data. Apparently, the recent study suggests that there are 14 Pokemon species that are spawning far more often after sunset than during daylight hours.
The “nocturnal” Pokemon are monsters from Generation I and Generation II. For those players who are still trying to complete their Pokedex and have only been hunting during daylight, this is really favorable information. To clear a possible confusion, these Pokemon do spawn during daylight as well, just at slower pace than the rest of the monster that have comparable rarity.
The monsters are the following:
GENERATION I – six monsters
- Zubat and Golbat
- Gastly and Haunter
GENERATION II – eight monsters
- Hoothoot and Noctowl
Ninatic, apparently, seems to change the spawn patterns quite often and without letting anyone know, in particular, so there may be a chance in the near future, that this pattern could suffer some modifications.
Pokemon GO is accessible in select regions on both Android and iOS devices.
Did you manage to catch one of these “nocturnal” rare Pokemon? I wish to every Pokemon player good luck and “gotta catch’em all”.
