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.
