We finally made it to the final part of our 3 part Where To Find Pokémon on 'Pokémon GO'. In this last piece - we will update it with new Pokémon - we'll be discussing the locations of our favorite: Ghost, Steel, Fire, Dark, Ice, and Rock-type Pokémon.
Granting that there are many apps out there showing the exact location, it’s nice to know where exactly to look. On top of that, Niantic Labs CEO John Hanke is not a fan of these apps as they take the fun out of the augmented reality game and is against their terms of services. As a result, these websites and apps may not be working in the future. So you better get used to - AGAIN - running around for these magical creatures.
Ghost Type Pokémon
You might think this is pretty simple Ghost Pokémon spawn everywhere where ghosts appear, partly right. These mystical creatures occasionally spawn around churches or other places of worship. However, from personal experience, they spawn everywhere but in the nighttime. Currently, there are only three Ghost-type Pokémon in the game, Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar. But, you can collect all three types in one go if you catch a bunch of Gastly - through evolution.
Steel Type Pokémon
Steel Type Pokémon were introduced in Generation II to balance the other types. This subclass was added to only to Magnemite and Magneton, which were only Electric-type. Like their kind already says these creatures can be found where there is a large body of steel. Therefore, you may find a Magnemite or any future Steel-type Pokémon at large buildings. And like Ground-type in Pokémon GO you can find them near train stations or railways.
Fire Type Pokémon
Please DO NOT GO to a volcano to catch a Fire-Type Pokémon the guys at Niantic know the dangers of fire so you should also. Where you can actually look for these blazing creatures is where you live, a.k.a. residential areas and neighborhoods. However, the spawning probability is higher in warmer places. For now, Pokémon GO has only these Fire-type Pokémon: Charmander, Charmeleon, Vulpix, Ninetales, Growlithe, Arcanine, Ponyta, Rapidash, Magmar, and Flareon.
Dark Type Pokémon
Although the game has not released any Dark-type Pokémon YET - they are in the game code. Unfortunately, these light fearing creatures will not come in one update. So we will have to wait for a long time for them.
Ice Type Pokémon
Just like Fire-type Pokémon you don't have to go to some place cold to find Ice-type Pokémon. But, the next best thing is to look near bodies of water. Nevertheless, for those who live in cold areas you're lucky as Pokémon such as Articuno - although not released - have a bigger chance of spawning at these locations. But, then again, if you don't live in any of those places Dewgong, Cloyster, and Lapras have been spotted in grassy locations though not very often.
Rock Type Pokémon
If you can find a stone, you'll definitely find a Rock-type Pokémon. However, an exact location would be more useful, just walk around the city and you'll find a Geodude. These stone creatures have spawned at shopping centers, parking lots, and even at large buildings. If you're going to the mall, please be careful with those electric escalators you don't want to become a Pokémon GO victim. Rock-type Pokémon include Geodude, Graveler, Golem, Onix, Omanyte, Omastar, Kabuto, Kabutops, Aerodactyl, Rhyhorn, and Rhydon.
There you have it all Pokémon types that the game has to offer. While many of us have not captured all of them, we can't wait for the next generation of Pokémon.
