Simple. What Pokemon would live near where you live.

For example, I live in the country on a pond so I think Lotad, Seedot, Magikarp, Goldeen, Pidgey, and a few others would live near me. What about you? discuss.

I live near the beach, so I think i'd see lots of krabby and kingler, wingull and pelipper, goldeen and seaking, magikarp and gyardos, Pokemon like that. But also where I live there is quite a bit of plants, vegitation and reserves. I think i'd see lots of flying pokemon and lots of bug, normal, and dog like pokemon. Don't forget a few poison pokemon, after all I live in Australia XD

Lots of Sawsbuck. Sawsbuck everywhere.

Tons of Swanna in the summer. We actually get a crapton of swans in the lakes around here.

Tons of Pachirisu/Emolga. And the typical Pidgey and crap. Probably a decent amount of Water-type Pokemon too becos yeah, aforementioned lakes.--------------------

I walked outside to think about some more I would see. Poliwag and its family, wooper, Pikachu, Caterpie and Weedle families, some other generic bugs and birds also would live near me.

I live in a desert.





Judging by the amount of earthquakes we get, I'm guessing that we probably have a Groudon too.

Definitely Pidoves,I've seen pigeons everywhere just walking around pecking at crumbs. There would be Lillipups stray or tamed and it's evolutions along with Glameows and Purrloin.

In the local park you'd definitely see some Butterfree,Caterpies,Weedles and the occasional Beedrill or two.Ponds would contain Magikarps,goldeens and maybe the odd Politoed.

Hmm and some Trubbish hiding in the bins as well. So that's probably my neighbourhood n_n

I live opposite kew gardens, there'd be some awesome Pokémon in there I bet. Also, the River Thames would be full of grimer

I’d say there’d be a fairly wide range of Pokémon around where I live.

Since I live in an ex-sword making village which borders an ex-iron mining town, there would probably be a couple of steel-types, most likely Pawniard and Aron.

With the rivers and the ridiculous amount of rain, there’d be quite a few water-types. Since frogs and toads are pretty abundant, Poliwag’s and Tympole’s families would be pretty common. A few Psyduck wouldn’t be unusual either. We don’t get too many fish, but there would probably be the odd Magikarp or Goldeen, with a couple of Gyarados in the nearby reservoir. There would also be a few bugs, like Surskit, Masquerain and Yanma, who live around water, and also bat Pokémon like Zubat and Woobat.

There are plenty of forests, so bug-types and grass-types should be pretty abundant. Lotad would be common around the water; Pineco would be fairly common too. Butterfly and moth Pokémon would be very common, along with their caterpillar forms, plus some Combee, Ledyba and Beedrill during the warmer weather. I doubt Shroomish or Foongus would be rare, given that there are plenty of fungi around. We also have a few deer, so Deerling and Sawsbuck would be around too. Hoppip’s family would be pretty common, with the amount of dandelion we get.

There’s some pretty varied bird life around, so there would be plenty of flying-types too. My neighbours have a problem with crows, so there would be Murkrow along with the common Pidgey, Pidove, Tailow and Starly. There would likely be a fair few Hoothoot, too.

That’s all I can think of right now when it comes to Pokémon around my area, apart from the obvious.

Considering that I live in a Canadian neighborhood now, it's safe to say that the common beginning Pokemon, such as Starly, Pidgey and Patrat, are around my area, with the occasional Pachirisu and Murkrow. In the winter months, Snover and Sneasel may be a bit more common.

Well I live in Ireland, I'm in the countryside but I live about a fifteen minute walk from a small town.

I started listing out the pokemon and realized I was typing out a lot of pokemon. I feel like most types would be found around my area....with the exception of Poison, Ice and Dragon types. Also sea based pokemon like Tentacool/Finneon or exotic grass types like Carnvine/Maractus, they likely wouldn't be found where I live whereas pokemon like Magikarp, Swanna, Oddish and Hoppip would be more likely water/grass types to appear in my area.)

It would probably be easier to list out the pokemon I absolutely would never expect.

I suppose it's because a lot of the land in pokemon games is like countryside.

I live in a city in the Philippines. There are many Askals(street dogs, mix-breed) here, so there might be some Houndours. There are also some dog pet owners here, so maybe also some Poochyenas and Growlithes. Many rats, definitely, so, Rattata. Also some birds; Pidgeys and Spearows. At my school, many dragonflies; Yanmas. Also alot of cricket making noise at night, Krickitot.

So lets sum it up: Houndours, poochyenas, growlithes, Rattatta, pidgeys, Spearows, Yanmas and krickitots.

Basing on the animals that I typically see we would probably have the following in our area:

Pachirisu
Buneary
Durant
Ponyta/Rapidash
Murkrows
Vullaby/Mandibuzz
Ducklett/Psyduck
Sandshrew/Drilbur?
Stunky/Stuntank
A good chunk of bug pokemon (Wurmple, Caterpie, Beedrill, Spinarak, Nincada, etc etc)
Miltank

and several more. Including ones that would be domestic such as Purrlion, Growlithe, etc. But that is pretty much the gist of what you'll see around here.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

I live near the Rocky Mountains, so probably a lot of Rock pokemon, a lot of Zubat, possibly even Larvitar or maybe even a Legendary hiding around the Front Range.

Love is the Law, Love under Will.

I live in what we South Africans call veld (Pronounced: Felt) or the equivalent of Savannah. We'd have Pidove, Blitzle, it's evolution, Vernipede, Caterpie, Ariados, Spearow, Pidgey, Woobat, Palpitoad, Girafarig, Buneary, Patrat, Venonat, Venomoth, Cascoon, Silkoon, Dustox, Wurmple, Beautifly, Cacnea, Beedrill, Turtwig, Grotle, Torterra, all the Nidos, Eevee, Joltik, Galvantula, Honchkrow, Torchic, Combusken, Blazekin, Snivy, Arbok (lots and lots), Ekans, Skorupi (lots), Seviper, Zangoose, Taillow et cetera. If you think about it, Africa isn't so bad after all for the animal lovers.

Meowth, Skitty, all those cat-like Pokemon. In 1/10 chance a neighbour has a Houndoom or Dog-like Pokemon. Theres lots of birds around my place. So expect birds such as crows, pidgeons, myna and all those birds that live around the tropical area. Around at the jungle/nature parts there's lizards, snakes, monkeys and spiders which can be represented by Kecleon, Totodile and its evolutions, Krokodile (spelling?) for lizards, Serviper (spelling?) Arbok and Ekans for snakes, Mankeys for the monkeys and as for spiders, probably Ariados. Not forgetting those Ants that are in my house, oh man they bite. They are represented by Durant, but smaller.

I guess I live close enough to some farms for there to be Miltank and Tauros. And plus, given the nature of Boulder, perhaps a few Poochyenas and Meowths. And a Mr. Mime or two on the Pearl Street Mall.

Love is the Law, Love under Will.

I live near a giant open area that in in from of my house that has a few trees in it, so probably some Houndour/Houndoom, Poochyena/Mightyena or maybe even a ponyta or rapidash as well (we actually have had a fire in the open area about 10 years ago). Near the back is dense woods though, so probably some bug pokemon like yanma, Caterpie evo line, Weedle evo line, etc. but nothing exotic like Scyther or Heracross.

I live on a block where a bunch of empty houses sit around the area; I'm not sayin' my house is the only house where peoples live, but majority of the houses on my block...are empty. :\ Hell, there's one right next door ours. Cats, birds, and squirrels are always seen running around or going inside the houses. so, I would say:

Taillow
Pidgey
Meowth
Glameow
Kricketot
Spinarak
Caterpie/Wurmple
Beautifly/Butterfree
Yanma
Snivy (Garden snakes)
Rattata
Trapinch
Zigzagoon
Beedrill (Wasps and Bees)
Pachirisu (Just because it's a squirrel)

I live in the city, so...I expect a lot of Rattata and Grimer. Probably some Pikachu and Joltik. Definitely lots of Pidove. Though...I'm not sure about having so many Pikachu and Joltik around the city. I'd most likely be running around trying to catch them all.

Living in London, there sure as hell would be lots and lots of Rattata, with a few scattered Raticate in the down-and-out areas, for sure. As well as the aforementioned Grimer and Muk, there'd also be loads of Pidoves stealing people's scraps of food, as well as some Pachirisu here and there to eat all of the nuts. Apart from that, there wouldn't be many wild Pokemon, per se, but there's probably be lots of domesticated Lillipups and Skitties and the likes. But probably not wild ones.
