Since the release of the second generation of Pokemon in Pokemon Go, one question has remained the most elusive: where is Corsola?
As more and more players began to catch Corsola, and others failed to locate it, what soon became clear is that there are parts of the world that the creature spawns in and parts that it does not. But this isn’t like the other region-exclusive Pokemon that are available in certain countries and not in others.
Instead, the region Corsola seems to be exclusive to is anywhere on the globe between 31°N and 26°S or so, which includes the very south end of Texas and Florida, in addition to the north of Australia.
It would make sense for Niantic to give this part of the world its own Pokemon. There are already region exclusives associated with North America, Europe, Australia and Asia, and so Corsola would cover Mexico, South America, Africa, and India, which did not previously have any exclusive.
There has actually been some debate, though, about whether Corsola is a regional Pokemon at all. Another theory is that it is associated with seasons. After all, the Pokedex entry for Corsola notes that these Pokemon congregate in warm areas and migrate south for the winter, and so perhaps the only reason it’s not currently available in the north is because of the weather. The only problem with that theory is that Corsola is currently showing up in quite a few places where the weather is still cold, and not showing up in other places where the weather is warm.
Another generation two Pokemon that appears to be region-exclusive is Heracross, though once again it’s not limited to one country. Heracross has been spotted in Mexico, all of South America, The Bahamas, and Southern Florida.
