Based on the terrain you cover, you will find a specific kind of Pokémon for that terrain. You can pretty much find Pokémon anywhere but we really enjoy the solitude of the local Sarasota parks and preserves. Parks with large bodies of water as well as saltwater beaches are wonderful places to go for rare finds. Ready to go out and search for Pokemon? Check out these tips first…
