Despite Pokémon GO being focussed around collecting as many Pokémon as you can, effectively encouraging its players to locate and 'catch 'em all', the game frustratingly makes this almost impossible for most - not unlike the core series titles. Some of the lovely critters, such as Kangaskhan and Farfetch'd to name a couple, can only be found in particular areas of the world meaning that you'd have to travel to a different continent just to catch your virtual, leek-holding duck.

Pleasingly, though, players have found that two Pokémon previously restricted to certain regions have just swapped locations. Seviper (previously available in Europe, Asia and Australia), and Zangoose (America and Africa) have now switched places, allowing players to finally get their hands on the second of the two.

Interestingly, this seems to be a nod to the Pokédex entries for these two Pokémon from the mainline games. Every single game in the series, from their debut titles Ruby and Sapphire, right through to the newest entries, talk about how Seviper and Zangoose are in a constant war with each other. It would appear that this shift in position relates to how these two Pokémon would find themselves squabbling over territory which is a very nice touch, indeed.
