Pokémon Nests are areas in specific geographical locations where an increased number of the same species of Pokémon appear.

With the introduction of Pokémon from the Sinnoh region, a greater variety of Pokémon species will appear over time and at different rates in each area. Additionally, certain areas, such as parks and nature reserves, now contain more varied Pokémon species.[1]

Nest migrations

Nest migrations are regular events in which a Pokémon nest changes from one location to another location. A migration occurs every other Thursday between 0:00 UTC and 0:30 UTC. The 135th migration is scheduled to occur on November 26th, 2020.

In the early weeks of the game, the migrations occurred about once a month. Since October 2016, migrations have occurred bi-weekly on a regular schedule. When a batch of new Pokémon species are released, nests are usually changed immediately.

Below there is list of nests migrations that have previously occurred.

  • Pokémon Nests are not clearly visible during the gameplay, but they share their locations with Exotic Matter in Ingress, making it possible to see nests via Ingress.
