Pokémon GO is an augmented reality game that is fun and easy to play. You get to meet, catch, train, and battle with your favorite Pokémon by your side. Literally!
There are more than 200 Pokémon in Pokémon GO, and all of them are scattered in different places, in different parts of the world.
Some Pokémon are harder to find than others, like Tropius.
Tropius is a grass and flying type Pokémon , with a brown body with a long neck, and green leaves for wings. A number of Pokémon are exclusive to certain parts of the world.
Tropius is one of them and can only be found in the regions of Africa, Southern Spain, and Crete.
This Pokémon is vulnerable to ice, fire, flying, poison, and rock moves and is therefore considered to be a rather weak Pokémon .
Though being a flying type, it is good against fighting, bug, and grass types.
So while some Pokémon GO enthusiasts are not usually on the lookout for this rare Pokémon , it can still be useful in fights, as long as you give it a good moveset.
To catch a regional Pokémon such as Tropius, you either have to travel to their location in real life, or make international friends and possibly do a trade with them.
Either way, here's a short list of coordinates where you can find it:
You're probably wondering if your options are limited to just traveling and making friends.
Traveling can be quite expensive, especially with the restrictions and guidelines being imposed because of COVID-19.
And making friends doesn't happen overnight, so it'll be awhile before you can get your Tropius.
Well, don't lament just yet because even if physical travel is out of the question, you can actually still go to the coordinates we listed above... and travel virtually instead.
You can do this by using a GPS spoofing app such as MockGo, which can teleport you to any place in the world.
Apps like MockGo are great if you like playing location-based games. Here are a few reasons why:
If you're interested, here are the steps on how to teleport using the MockGo app:
Step 1. Start by downloading the MockGo app on your computer. Then, begin and complete the installation process.
Step 2. Once done, open the app. Go to the main page of MockGo, and connect your iPhone to your computer.
Step 3. Next, make sure you are in the teleport mode which is activated by clicking the first button in the upper right corner.
Step 4. Then search for the location where you want to be teleported by typing in the desired coordinates in the search bar. Select the location, and then click Go.
Step 5. Then, drop the location pin map on the screen and click the Move Here button.
Finally, once you are able to pin the exact location where you want to teleport, close the software and open Pokémon GO. Your character should be in your new location.
Let the fun begin! But be warned. Spoofing your location is considered cheating and can result in a soft ban on your account.
To avoid this, you can adjust the speed of your movement in MockGo, so that Pokémon GO will think that you are legitimately playing the game.
Now that you know how to teleport to the locations where you can possibly locate Tropius, here are tips on how to catch it.
Now, if you were unable to get to the location physically or virtually, then your only option left is to do a trade with your friends. For your guidance, here is a list of Stardust costs when you trade Tropius:
Catching a regional Pokémon like Tropius is possible, you only need a bit of patience, and the help of an external app like MockGo to help you reach your desired location.
