Find Out What Has Changed in the New Pokemon Go Nest Migration


If you’ve played at least a bit of Pokemon Go, then you might know what nests are. For those unfamiliar with the term, Pokemon nests are a certain area on the game’s map where you can find a certain species of Pokemon spawning very often. Needless to say, Niantic Labs are trying to keep things interesting and competitive, therefore every two weeks nests migrate, and some of them disappear for good.

And now, on May 3rd, the twentieth nest migration took place. If you thought that you’ve discovered a good nesting spot near you, then you might want to brace yourself, because it’s changed or gone now. If you want to keep up to date with nest migrations, you can simply visit The Silph Road.
