If you're still somehow playing Pokémon Go (guilty), chances are you've started figuring out where some of the more elusive Pokémon are nesting around the city. But ever since our Niantic overlords shut down Pokévision and other third-party tracking sites, things have gotten a little trickier. So until they fix the tracking glitch and introduce upgraded gameplay features like player-to-player trading (how else would you get a Mr. Mime?), we'll be stuck running around town to fill up the blank slots in our Pokédex. Obviously, for the best general results, level up as much as you can with the basic Pokémon, then hang out anywhere with tons of Pokéstops and take advantage of other people's lure modules—think Central Park, Bryant Park or Union Square. But if you're looking for a specific Pokémon, here's a guide to 20 key Pokémon sightings in NYC that may come in handy. Happy catching!
