G2G Media presents, Willow’s Almanac!

You may have noticed that there is a TON to keep up with when it comes to Pokémon GO. 

Whether it’s monthly Research Tasks, Raid Bosses or, Team GO Rocket, we’ve decided to house it here, in Willow’s Almanac, for convenience purposes. 

Don’t forget; we do have our dropdown lists of current items conveniently located on the Homepage!

**Please Note: We will be periodically working on these lists…we decided, why deprive you of this butt load of info waiting for us to complete it…so here ya go!! However, we appreciate and thank you for your patience in the meantime!**

List of NON-NESTING Species

While any Pokemon absent from the main list below should be considered “non-nesting”,  these are a few categories that generally exclude a Pokemon from being able to nest in the first place. While Niantic could change this at the drop of a hat if they so desire, these qualifiers have been observed to be true since the system was discovered

  • Current or former regional exclusives
    Examples: Mr. Mime, Heracross, Corsola
    If a Pokemon only exists within a specific geographic region, no matter how large or small it may be, that Pokemon has not been observed to be a nesting species.

  • Most 10km eggs
    Examples: Dratini, Beldum, Gible
    If a Pokemon hatches from a 10k egg outside of special events, then it will generally not be able to nest.
    *Note that some species have left the 10k egg pool over the years and can now nest.

     

  • Some former 10km eggs (now 5km eggs):
    Examples: Pineco, Mareep, Trapinch
    If a Pokemonhas left the 10k egg group, it can still remain a non-nesting species.

     

  • The Hitmons
    Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Hitmontop
    Despite being a first-form after a baby Pokemon (Tyrouge), the Hitmons are still considered rare Pokemon and cannot nest.

     

  • Egg, Research, or Raid exclusives
    Mawile, Absol, Shinx, Lucario
    Their unique status of generally not being available in the wild outside of special circumstances has lead them to being unable to nest.

     

  • Special cases
    Togetic, Ditto, Unown, Delibird, Smeargle, Nincada, Chimecho, Clamperl, Spiritomb
    These Pokemon all have something that makes them unique. Be it holiday-status, event availability, unique in-game function, or research-exclusivity, these Pokemon have not been observed nesting as a result.
