According to this user, it’s easier than ever to catch Porygon around government buildings.


”Two days ago we had five Porygon inside SEAPI and yesterday there was two I could count inside MAPA, one at 8h09PM and another at 9h09PM. The buildings are not located in the same area, they are in (more or less) 15 min ride away each other.

I see a lot people trying to figure out Porygon’s spawn areas and I though this might be a pattern. I will keep monitoring, of course. “
