There are two ways you can catch an Oranguru in Pokemon GO.

  • Encounter it in the wild: Since Oranguru is a Normal Psychic Pokemon. You can find it pretty much anywhere due to its normal typing. But because it is also a Psychic-type it is worth trying to catch them at night, or in areas that are near water or beach. The best way to encounter it is using Lure Module and Incense.
    • Lure Module: Find a Pokestop where you feel there is a high chance of this Pokemon spawning and use a Lure Module there. This will also be useful to other players.
    • Incense: Unlike the Lure Module the incense only spawns Pokemon near the player. You should also know that due to the latest changes it will now spawn one pokemon every 5 minutes.
    • Be sure to spin Pokestops frequently to stock up on Poke balls. This will help in improving your chances of catching an Oranguru by not running out of Poke balls when you encounter one.
  • Hatch it from a 7 KM egg: Start Hatching any 7 KM eggs you get from the Sustainability Week. Hatching older 7 KM eggs won’t be of much use. To speed up the process you can use the Super Incubators as they hatch eggs faster than the unlimited and limited ones. These are the Pokemon that you can hatch from the 7 KM egg of Sustainability Week.
