The official Pokémon GO website has released information concerning the arrival of Alolan forms to Pokémon GO.
Originally introduced in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, Alolan forms take on the same names as the Pokémon that they are modelled after, but they have unique quirks to differentiate them from the Kanto forms. For example, while Vulpix is usually a Fire-type Pokémon, in Alola, Vulpix is an Ice-type.
Sunny days are ahead! Whether your forecast calls for rain or shine, we’re celebrating all around the world by introducing some special Pokémon from the tropical Alola region to Pokémon GO. Get ready for some of the Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region to appear in their Alolan forms!
These unique variants were first seen in the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games, and they will make their way to Pokémon GO in the coming weeks.
Keep an eye out for news related to this exciting change—and don’t forget to tell your friends!
Stay safe, and happy exploring!
