[Pokemon GO] Personal List of Hotspots, Banned and Must-Catch List

Personal journal for PoGO. Just to keep a record of some stuff, in case I need to counter-check one of these days :3

 

Nice Pokemon Spots

Simply places I’ve visited in Sg so far that have interestingly high appearances of specific Pokemon, as well as the occasional rare. Please note that Niantic is known for changing Pokemon locations (or Pokemon Nests) from time to time, so this list may be outdated come a few weeks later, but you never know what is really considered a nest and what is not.. so, I’ll try to keep this in view.

Ranked from “Abundance” (spawns faster than you can catch sometimes) to “Rare” (appeared only once throughout my stay). I will leave out Pokemon like Pidgey, Weedle, Caterpie and Rattata for obvious reasons.

Vivocity:

– Abundance: Magikarp, Psyduck.
– Common: Tentacool, Staryu, Goldeen.
– Uncommon: Golduck, Tentacruel, Dratini, Horsea, Poliwag, Krabby.
– Rare: Pikachu, Dragonair.

– Notes: One of the best places for Pokemon hunting, especially at the rooftop. Access to most of the 10+ Pokestops in the area from just walking along the rooftop, and lures on most of them :O If you want a Gyarados please do visit this place! No problem getting 1 Gyarados per day at the rate karps spawn. Do remember to bring enough Pokeballs though cos you definitely use them quicker than you can receive!

East Coast Park (Hawker centre to Jetty stretch):

– Common: Cubone, Rhyhorn.
– Uncommon: Shellder, Jigglypuff, Voltorb.
– Rare: Electrode, Geodude, Mankey.

– Notes: Entrance to Jetty has 2 Pokestops placed close together, common place for lure. Not many Pokestops along this stretch though.

Parkway Parade Starbucks:

– Common: Magnemite, Voltorb
– Uncommon: Exeggcute, Bellsprout, Goldeen, Oddish
– Rare: Magneton, Electrode, Dratini, Ponyta, Vulpix, Jigglupuff, Scyther, Abra.

– Notes: Only 1 Pokestop at Starbucks, but Pokemon like Voltorb and Magnemite do spawn regularly. Parkway Parade is horrible for PoGO despite its popularity and crowd.

 

Banned List

So there are certain Pokemon we no longer wna tap at when they spawn now. Such are the notorious or unwanted ones. We no longer need them to Pokedex since we have already seen and owned one of their brothers, and we definitely do not need their assisstance in fighting gyms. Also, some are just so bothersome to catch it’s a waste of time and balls. Of course, they also do not belong to the EGGVOLVE catergory of power-leveling through Lucky Egg Evolving. Hence, we avoid when these Pokemon appear and Professor Willow stops getting them too 😛

– Zubat (Known to fly high and far and be stupidly hard to land balls at)/Golbat
– Venonat (High candy count to evolve)/Venomoth
– Spearow (High candy count to evolve)/Fearow
– Tentacool/Tentacruel
– Jolteon (PoGO needs to change how speed Pokemon operates in battle, or how Speed factors into combat really. Pokemon that focus on speed stat are currently trash tier)
– Pinsir (Bad skills and surprisingly common after a while)
– Raticate
– Ekans/Arbok

List will be updated when I can think of more to add.

 

Must-Catch

Completely opposite of the previous list. These Pokemon are much sought after and it is best to grab one whenever they appear! They are either mostly rare Pokemon that you have to obtain candies to even scrape to that 50 candy count, or are powerful Pokemon that you need to farm for that superb IV and skillset combination to add to your best team.

– Magikarp (400 candies needed to evolve, if resulting Gyarados has poor skillset, farm again)/Gyarados
– Snorlax
– Vulpix (Rare)/Ninetales
– Ponyta (Rare)/Rapidash
– Growlithe (Arcanine is one of the most powerful Pokemon in the game now, be sure to get the coveted Fire Fang/Fire Blast on a good IV Arcanine!)/Arcanine
– Eevee (Never enough Eevees! Flareon and Vaporeon are very good Pokemon considering the ease of obtaining them)
– Flareon/Vaporeon
– Lapras (If you can even meet one in the wild)
– Slowpoke (Slowbro is pretty powerful)/Slowbro
– Staryu (Water Gun/Hydro Pump Starmie is powerful)/Starmie
– Abra (Rare)/Kadabra/Alakazam
– Gastly (Rare)/Haunter/Gengar
– Starter Pokemon
– Pikachu/Raichu
– Shellder/Cloyster
– Omanyte/Omastar
– Kabuto/Kabutops
– Dratini/Dragonair/Dragonite

List will be updated when I can think of more to add.
