Alolan Forms are Coming to GO!

You heard us right – Alolan Forms are coming to Pokémon GO!

Originally discovered in Pokémon Sun & Moon, Alolan Forms of Kantoian Pokémon such as Alolan Raichu, Alolan Marowak, and fan favorite Alolan Exeggutor, will be made available in the “coming weeks”. No specifics yet on how the Alolan Form mechanic will work in the game.

Alolan Forms coming to Pokémon GO was inevitable, but with the incredibly popular mobile game only having Pokémon up through Generation III available, their introduction seems somewhat premature. Although Niantic seems to be marketing their inclusion as a celebration of the sunny, summer days just around the corner, could this be part of TPCi’s plans to put an emphasis on Kanto across all their channels for Pokémon Switch? Guess only time will tell…

Which Alolan Form are you most excited to catch irl? And how’s your Pokédex coming along in Pokémon GO?
