Pokemon Nest locations in Kuala Lumpur

PokemonGo has been phenomenon in Malaysia with flash mob of trainers flocking popular areas to hunt for Pokemons. Hatching an egg is not a guaranteed way to hunt for a rare Pokemon. The best way is still to catch and evolve them. Are you looking for candies to evolve your Pokemons ? To save you some time as a trainer, here are some known Pokemon nests in Klang Valley including Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya and it’s surrounding areas.

What should players focus on getting?

Personally, trainers should focus on evolving the strongest Pokemons. At the time of writing, Dragonite, Snorlax, Lapras and Exeggutor are some of the most powerful Pokemons that you can add into your inventory. These Pokemons are great at capturing and defending gyms. Other Pokemons such as  Gyarados, Arcanine, Flareon,  Jolteon, Vaporeon and Charizard are not so bad either.



This creature comes in handy when you are planning to evolve a Dragonite, one of the strongest Pokemon creature so far.

As of latest Niantic updates the Dratinis here have reduced in Klang Valley. We are still looking for locations with plenty of Dratinis in KL.

Kuala Lumpur 

Titiwangsa Lake : There are still Dratini and Dragonair here but much lesser after spawn change

Pasar Seni & Masjid Jamek facing Klang River

Mines Wonderland: There is one that spawns regulary at the cannal.

Dataran Merdeka , Setiawalk





Eeveen can be found at Publika & Sunway Pyramid. Other known places are Dataran Merdeka and TheCurve. Don’t worry too much about Eevee as they are not too hard to find. The tiny little Pokemon comes in handy when you want to evolve into Vaporeon, Flareon or Jolteon. You need only 25 candies for such evolution, perhaps one of the easier ones to evolve as compared other strong Pokemons. Besure to keep a lot candies as you will need to evolve them 3 times for 3 different Pokemons.





Growlithe candies are important for Arcanine evolution. One of the best attackers so far. Do not expect a huge number of Growlithe spawning at one time as this Growlithe is quite rare

There new Growhlithe spawn location is at KLCC. Not exactly a nest but one spawns there regular.

There is a known Growlithe nest at Ikano, The Curve and Ikea. 




Hunting for this rare Pokemon is not easy. Snorlax is one of the best gym defender and tanker available. Snorlax doesn’t spawns at the same exact spot however rather randomly at specific location. Snorlax has been spotted before at Sunway Pyramid, 1Utama , Klang (particularly on the road to Banting) and Midvalley, . You might need to camp there the whole day just for single spawn of Snorlax.




Everybody wants a Dragonite.  We cannot pinpoint the exact location as it does not spawn on the same spot, as such we believe that the best way to get a high CP Dragonite is still to evolve them from Dratini.

Spotted Locations

Wangsa Maju : Areas partcularly nearby LRT stations ( Sri Rampai and Wangsa Maju)

Dataran Merdeka 






Unverified information stated that the new Charmander nest is at   Laman Seri business Park,  Section 13 and Persiaran Sukan, Shah Alam

As of September mass nest migration, Charmander does not spawn at Dataran Merdeka anymore.



Magikarp can be found abundantly near the waters. However the suggested place for Magikarp is at Titiwangsa Lake.  Magikarp is one of the easiest ways where a trainer can evolve a Gyarados. You can probably get a Gyarados (400 Magikarp candies) by just camping at Titiwangsa for a day. Desapark City , SetiaWalk, Klang River from Pasar Seni to Masjid Jamek and Putrajaya Lakes  are also known good locations for Magikarp hunting.



Exeggcute can be found at Bukit Bintang areas. Exeggcute will evolve to Exeggcuter which is quite awesome. Exeggcuter with Solar Beam is even more devastating.



This is one Epic Pokemon. I would think twice to attack a Gym defended by a 2000CP Lapras even if I have 3 Dragonites. It is just not worth it especially when the Lapras comes with some dangerous moves. Lapras has been spotted before in Tanjang Harapan, Klang.

Update: Our friends in Penang claims Lapras can be found at Karpal Singh Drive (KSD)



As of September migration the new Pikachu nest in at KLCC Park and KLGCC

The best place to capture Pikachu is at Taman Jaya,  Amcorp mall, specifically behind TNB building. This location can be accessed easily via LRT.  Sunway Pyramid is also a known place for Pikachu. Pikachu is essential for Raichu evolution.




Clefairy  has been spotted abundantly at 1Utama area.



LectaBuzz can be found at Tasik PKNS at Shah Alam, particularly nearby Sirim area




The new Rhydon new is at Bangsar area near Bangsar Shopping Complex.



Bulbasaur can be found at Setia Alam Mall, Cyberjaya along the Persiaran Multimedia and Putrajaya Sentral





The best areas to hunt for SlowPoke is at KLCC Park



Midvalley Fountain area, Taman Tasik Titiwangsa.



Vulpix candy is important for Ninetales evolution.

Vulpix spawns regularly at Shah Alam Stadium, Sekyen 13. Particular area to look for is at Bulatan Stadium and near the Pokestop area




The new Onix nest is at Persiaran Sukan, Seksyen 13, Shah Alam, .




Magnemite a Electric, Steel type Pokemon will evolve into Magneteon

Magnemite can be found at

Jalan Tempua 14 ,Bandar Puchong Jaya, September new nest .This area is gated residential. Please be weary




The new Machop nest as of September 2017 is at Taman Tasik Perdana.




Chansey is said to spawn in areas near to hospitals.

Some areas where Chansey was spotted

HKL , Prince Court: Dont expect a nest , Chansey is rare where you may have to wait a whole day just for a few spawns




Gastly spawns just like Zubat. It can only be found when nearer to evening or during evening.

Some Ghastly spawning areas

Central Park Bandar Utama, 1U new wing





Cubone is a ground type Pokemon. Thanks to our readers,  Cubone can be found at

Taman Tasik Permaisuri




Seel nest can be found at

Shah Alam Public Library and Sultan Abdul Aziz Golf Club area




There is a Magmar nest in front of Indonesian Embassy in KL




The new Voltrob nest is at Jalan Temua , Bandar Puchong Jaya. This area is gated residential. Please be weary




Meowth nest can be found at  Pelangi Damansara and Bandar Utama Golf course area.




Farfetch’d is a region exclusive Pokemon that can be found in East Asian region. Don’t believe in rumours saying Farfetch can be found in KLIA. This rare Pokemon has been only spotted a few times in Singapore but can easier be found in countries such as Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan.  As such we conclude Farfetch is not available in Malaysia yet.


How to find the exact location of spawning area? 

The best ways to find these exact spawning areas is to follow the crowds. Do not worry too much as Pokemon Go draws large crowd of trainers into public places such as parks. Look for places the lure modules are placed non stop as these are popular Pokemon hunting spots
