- Solrock is currently a region-exclusive Pokémon of the Western Hemisphere.
- Solrock was originally a region-exclusive Pokémon of the Americas and Africa. It swapped to the Europe, Asia and Australia on June 21st, 2018.

- Solrock swapped to the Eastern Hemisphere on June 23rd, 2020.
- Solrock swapped to the Western Hemisphere on June 20th, 2021.
- Solrock and Lunatone are the first shiny region-exclusive Pokémon in the game.
- Initially, it was vaguely stated by Niantic for which particular regions Solrock is exclusive, as it had been publicly announced that it didn't appear in the same region that Lunatone does.
- It was speculated that Solrock spawns more frequently between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM local time, which could be the opposite of the spawn pattern for Lunatone.
- In Hoenn Celebration 2019, Summer Solstice and Enigma Week, Solrock and Lunatone appeared in raids all over the world.
