All Gen 1, Gen 2 and Gen 3 Nesting and Non-Nesting Pokemon in Pokemon Go

Lately, a lot of Pokemon Go Trainers have been asking the questions, “What Pokemon nests?” “Does Delibird nests?” “Does Ditto nests?” “But what about Feebas?” and to be honest, that “Feebas” is getting out of control.

For this matter, a Pokemon Go Trainer, from Germany, who goes by the name Zyxwgh on Reddit, has decided to make a list of nesting and non-nesting species. This has been proven to be right, and thanks to Zyxwgh, I hope this will make it easier for the rest of the Pokemon Go community.

Here is the list of all unevolved adult species that can and can’t nest:
