Today we’re looking at the latest update to Pokemon GO with special emphasis on the list of Pokemon attracted by the Magnetic Lure Module. This lure was given a kick in the pants this week as it’s part of the latest Pokemon GO event. Now that relatively massive numbers of Pokemon GO trainers have a Magnetic Lure in their possession, naturally there’s a greater call for a Magnetic Lure list of Pokemon – what’s this thing do, anyway?
The Lure Module (Magnetic Lure and other lures included) are Pokemon game items exclusive to the game Pokemon GO. In Pokemon GO, a standard Lure Module is “attached” to a PokeStop and, once attached, remains active in the game for 30 minutes. During that effect time, a Lure on a PokeStop will increase spawns of Pokemon in the nearby area.
Each Lure is effective for every person in the game, not just the player who placed the Lure. Only one Lure can be placed on a PokeStop at one time. Where a standard Pokemon Lure attracts random Pokemon, several more specific lures are more targeted, attracting smaller lists of Pokemon and/or Pokemon types.
Magnetic Lure Pokemon list
As of August 27, 2019, the Magnetic Lure Module increases nearby spawns of the following Pokemon. Alolan Diglett, Alolan Geodude, Magnemite, Onix, Voltorb, Electabuzz, Mareep, Skarmory, Nosepass, Leiron, Electrike, Beldum, Sheildon.
Standing in-range of a Magnetic Lure Module also allows a player to evolve a Magneton into Magnezone and a Nosepass into Probopass (assuming they’ve got the requisite amount of Pokemon Candy).
Glacial Lure Pokemon list
When within range, Glacial Lure allows Eevee to evolve into Glaceon. This evolution overrides other Eevee evolution setups – even if you’ve walked your Eevee long enough to make it your buddy and intend on creating Espeon or Umbreon – so watch out! See more about Eevee evolutions and Shiny business for more on each different “Eevolution.”
The Glacial Lure will boost spawn rates of a certain set of water/ice type Pokemon when attached to a PokeStop. These Pokemon include Seel, Shellder, Magikarp, Sneasel, Swinub, Wailmer, Feebas, Snorunt, Spheal, Clamperl, Piplup, Finneon, and Snover.
Mossy Lure Pokemon list
The Mossy Lure works a lot like the Glacial Lure with Eevee, but here turns the Pokemon into Leafeon. The Mossy Lure attracts spawns of a different set of Pokemon – mostly grass types. These include Butterfree, Beedrill, Oddish, Bellsprout, Exeggcute, Tangela, Scyther, Yanma, Schuckle, Roselia, Gulpin, Combee, and Cherubi.
These lists will very likely change by the end of next month, when the 5th generation of Pokemon is launched. Learn more about “A Unova Unveiling” in our recent Shiny-centric article All 17+ Shiny Pokemon GO releases for Ultra Bonus Week.
