    How are locations of Pokemon Monsters determined?

    This ties in with my last question about Poke Stops and Poke Gyms. But how are Pokemon's located? Who decides where they'll pop up? Is it determined by algorithm?

    On NPR this morning, a professional in video game programming stated that an algorithm, rather than a human, places the characters in each city around the world; and that the algorithm determines the length of time characters stay one place and to where they move next.

    That's all I know about it - what I heard on NPR.

      That's funny Patty Inglish - I listen to NPR 99.9% of my day but somehow I missed this! I must have been in the shower after my workout. Thanks.
