Trainers, there’s a trick to get Zygarde Cells, and it appears to work like a charm every time. It’s incredibly simple, so you’ll definitely want to give it a shot. Here’s how you can master this Zygarde Cell hunt.
First off, if you haven’t yet encountered Zygarde, you’ll need to complete the third segment of the “From A to Zygarde” Special Research. Just claim the rewards, and you’ll get an encounter with Zygarde in its 10% form and a handy Zygarde Cube. Once you have the cube, you’re geared up to gather more Zygarde Cells.
These Cells can be found using the newly introduced Routes feature in Pokémon GO. As you meander down a Route, look out for the Cells, they’ll stand out as small, shiny, green-yellow icons.
Now for the trick that could make your Zygarde quest a walk in the park, literally. When you’re about 100m away from the end of a Route, pause your journey, close the game, then reopen it and restart your Route. Take a little stroll in circles and you should encounter a Cell.
Remember, each Route provides only three exclusive spawns, which could be either Pokémon or Zygarde Cells. Any additional Pokémon you see are just the standard spawns and not specific to the Route.
