Pokemon GO Nesting Species List

Pokemon nests can be difficult to keep track of. Reddit user u/Zyxwgh has here a rundown of Pokemon nesting habits. 

Assumptions:

  • Babies, legendaries and Absol and Mawile don't spawn in the wild and therefore they don't nest;

  • Babies' first evolutions count as "unevolved adults" that may nest;

  • Evolved species (except for direct evolutions from babies) don't nest.
