Some Pokémon of the same species may appear in different forms due to weather conditions, being from different regions, or other reasons. The difference between forms of a Pokémon species may be only visual, but can also present different evolution options, availability, types, moves, base stats and height and weight. Different forms are recorded in the corresponding Pokédex entry under different Pokémon form switches.

Trivia

  • On May 22nd, 2018, Alolan forms of Pokémon, originally discovered in the Kanto region, were stated to begin to appear in-game.[1]
  • Some Event Pokémon also count as different forms rather than costumed Pokémon in game, thus they count towards the Special Trades if one of Trainers don't have such Event Pokémon.
  • Shadow Pokémon and Purified Pokémon are also treated as different forms in game.
