  • 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.[5]
