‘Pokemon Go’ Cheats, Tips & Tricks: Rare ‘Porygon’ Spawn Location Found?

 The hunt for rare “Pokemon Go” creatures continue and while previous posts have focused on the likes of MewTwo, Articunos or Zapdos, there are of course more rares to hunt down.

One “Pokemon Go” critter is Porygon, a mythical creature that is probably hard to come by. Expect perhaps for the ones who are well-educated with Pokemon, this is one elusive rare to go for. But the question is how and where?

“Porygon” loves courthouses?

According to Pokemon Go Hub, the spawning spot of Porygon was reportedly near several courts and/or administrative buildings. Before migration, the “Pokemon Go” rare was frequently spotted along the State Division of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation (SEPAI) and/or the Department of Agriculture, Livestock and Supplies (MAPA) in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

For those who are unaware, MAPA and SEPAI are two different locations but are only 15 minutes apart. Analyzing the sightings of Porygon even more, it would, later on, be found that the “Pokemon Go” critter had about a 0.03024% chance of spawning, a useful tip for the ones over in Brazil.

Moving ahead, could the trend for Porygon be applicable in other regions as well? The best thing to do is for “Pokemon Go” players to figure that out for themselves, meaning players may want to be more alert when they find themselves around courthouses or government buildings.

With the aid of some deciphering from Open Street Maps, it seems that he returns from the readings support the claim. But the thing to note here is that Porygon spawns ‘near’ the buildings and not actually inside them.

Why is this important?

For “Pokemon Go” players, these could be useful moving forward. Changes are forthcoming and it does clarify that folks don’t need to be inside buildings to capture Pokemon, particularly Porygon in this case.

Ideally, the way Niantic programs the “Pokemon Go” spawns are technical and presumably at random. This could be a coincidence but just the same, players may want to draw their devices and scan their surroundings in case they are near such buildings.
