Pokemon Go API – Nesting Pokemon List

This post talks about the latest API I have added to PoGoAPI.net, the Nesting Pokemon API.

What the Nesting API can be used for

In Pokemon Go there are specific locations that are marked as nests. These are typically around parks and other geographical landmarks. Areas that match the nesting criteria will have a specific pokemon associated with it. This Pokemon will have a high chance to spawn each time the area spawns a new Pokemon.

Every two weeks all nests will change to be another pokemon in the nesting pokemon rosta. So far there has been no pattern found in nesting pokemon so knowing what nest something previously was will not help you finding which nest it is going to be in the future.

However once you know what Pokemon is nesting in the specific area you know that it will continue to spawn multiple of these during the day. This can allow easy collection of specific Pokemon once you know an area is a nest and what the current nesting Pokemon are.

Getting the Nesting Pokemon names and ID’s

Only specific Pokemon will nest and this API lets you get the name and ID of all Pokemon known to currently nest.

GET /api/v1/nesting_pokemon.json

Returns a JSON dict with the keys being the Pokemon ID, the values are an array containing the pokemon name and ID.

Example data

{ 1: { id: 1, name: "Bulbasaur" }, 4: { id: 4, name: "Charmander" }, 7: { id: 7, name: "Squirtle" }, ... }

The full documentation is available on the PoGoAPI.net documentation page.
