Many players of Pokemon Go have been frustrated by only finding common Pokemon, but the people at Wanderu have figured out which cities in the US have the rarest Pokemon. Unsurprisingly, larger cities seem to be the best bet for finding rare Pokemon. The top six cities for rare finds are Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, New York City, Boston and Orlando.

Los Angeles is the cream of the crop, offering the best mix of rare Pokemon. Dratini, Hitmonlee, Electabuzz, Lapras, Snorlax,Chansey, Kabuto,Porygon,and Aerodactyl have all been spotted in LA. The City of Angels is now the City of Pokemon.


Wanderu reportedly collected this data by using Twitters API to find hashtags containing the names of rare Pokemon. By doing this, they were able to find reports of rare Pokemon sighting and note which cities they were most sighted in.

Other cities with a high amount of rare Pokemon sightings are Houston, Texa and San Jose, California. In addition to Los Angeles and New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia and Indianapolis are the best places to find mythical Pokemon. Reno is also one of the best places to find special Pokemon.
