Alolan form Pokémon from Kanto are coming to Pokémon Go
It’s coming up to summer in the northern hemisphere and the regionally-blind Niantic has a summer themed event for Pokemon Go about to kick off. We might not have the sun, but least we still get this event.
In the coming weeks, the Alolan forms of Pokemon originally from Kanto region will start to appear in the game. From the promo image, we can see the likes of Diglett, Meowth, Vulpix, Marowak, Exeggutor, Raichu, Muk, Rattata and more.
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!
Interesting to see that Niantic has skipped Gen 4 and gone onto this, but why the Kanto region again, and now?
