    There is a Pidgey, Jigglypuff, Charmander, Inkay, Samurott, Chatot, Meowth, TyranitarCroagunk, Combee, Grovyle, and Gengar around the Sydney CBD. There's a Steelix at Central station, a Plusle down at Redfern, an Umbreon at Pyrmont, and a Torterra at USyd. Can't be bothered searching for more as they're clearly everywhere.

    Edit: I think it must be based on your location. So they spawn around the nearest city.

      Here's a linked list.

    There seems to be a bit of a refresh issue - I picked up 24 in and around the Sydney CBD (out as far as Newtown and UNSW), but they seem to phase in and out of existence depending on what you've loaded. I also didn't find any at sites that you would expect to be common such as Bondi or anything North of (or at) the Harbour Bridge.

    I also couldn't find the ones at Redfern or Sydney Uni as were referenced above, and found some on a swipe back that weren't there originally - so they may be on a layer that loads at a different rate to the maps.

    There seems to be several of each pokemon around the world. I've caught a couple of porygons and munna already.

    Found so many at Tokyo Tower, Minato, Tokyo, Japan search around the area .... Don't know how to post the pics

    And found all 150. Had to criss cross the globe to do it but totally worth it.

      dude can't find oshawott and venusaur

        Hint hint: They are in California in a green area, just upright from the house :3

      Got the 151st pokemon yet?

    When you find one Pokemon, there's usually other Pokemon near by.

    Took me like 2 hours to catch them all. Here's a list of all 151 Pokemon locations: http://gumballbrain.com/all-151-pokemon-locations-google-maps/

    Venice
    Cook county jail Chicago
    A few in Dubai
    Los cabos Mexico
    Great pyramids of Egypt
    A bunch in Sydney
    Niagara Falls
    Paris
    Versailles, France

    Pasay City, Philippines for Spritzee
