Kanto Spawn Testing

From Pokemon World Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A complete re-assessment of the spawns in all maps of the game has been taking place since the beginning of 2014. Kanto was completed in June 2015. The active page for the spawn testing project is now the Johto Spawn Testing page.

Stages of the testing included:

  • Research of existing and appropriate spawns and levels for each map.
  • Staff pretesting of new spawns chosen.

On this page will be highlighted not only the spawns for the finalized blocks of maps that have been released, but also other notable changes that have occurred alongside these releases.


Key to spawn rates:

Tier 1, marked as #1 - Easiest to find, will appear in under 20 minutes on average.

Tier 2, marked as #2 - Slightly more difficult. Should appear on average, 20 minutes to 1 hour apart.

Tier 3, marked as #3 - 1 to 5 hours average time between spawns.

Tier 4, marked as #4 - 5 to 15 hours average time between spawns.

Tier 5, marked as #5 - Anything over 15 hours average time between spawns.
