The Lapras spawn might have been tracked down!
Tons of trainers on reddit have been discussing the frequent spawn point in Hong Kong that has shared key characteristics across the world for the Lapras spawn. It seems as if Lapras spawns near the electric biome.
According to myckol a Hong Kong resident whose experienced frequent Lapras spawns in his town, has mentioned that this electric biome is associated to coastal areas, but are not as frequent as regular water biomes. They seem to occur on headlands, peninsulas and some piers (but not all piers), basically areas of land that bulges out to the sea.
In these Lapras ‘Hot Spots’ there are frequent spawns
According to myckol these frequent spawns include:
- Magnemite and magneton
- Voltorb and electrode
In Hong Kong, there is a dratini hotspot in a coastal shopping mall (around 5-10 spawns per hour) which at least a 100 people per day camping this area. This area is full of water spawns and some regular city spawn points. Yet, Lapras has never spawned in this area. So I set of to understand why this is the case.
There are a hand full of Lapras hotspots in Hong Kong, these areas are all by water, yet, the biome differed from the said shopping mall. Although there are still water spawn points, these Lapras hot spot areas are also electric biomes – myckol
He also mentioned that these Dratini hotspots never spawned a Shellder. In Hong Kong its been said that there are numerous Lapras hotspots.

Another redditor from Australia named juniiii on another reddit topic about this Lapras spawn has discussed specific times for his Lapras spawns. It seems as if his frequent spawns were around 4:30-7:00AM for his timezone. More specifically 7:13/7:14 AM, this reddit topic can be read here if you would like more information.
That’s all for today, I hope you all have a wonderful day!
