Gyarados has a reasonably large habitat in the Paldea Region and can be found in almost all water-based areas within the entire map. Though the habitats it lives in are highlighted in yellow on the map below, these areas cover a wide area of the map, so it can be a little difficult to pinpoint the exact location of a Gyarados. To make this search a little more convenient, and help you narrow down specific spots for your hunt, here’s a complete list of the areas Gyarados can be found:

  • East Paldean Sea
  • North Paldean Sea
  • South Paldean Sea
  • West Paldean Sea
  • Lake Casseroya

If you’re having trouble with your search, give Lake Casseroya a try, as Gyarados may be a little more common and easier to find in this location. This is indicated in Gyarados’ Pokedex entry, which mentions that it is often seen at this specific place.
