Trivia

  • Initially, the task of Alolan Vulpix was "Hatch 7 Eggs". A bug disabled shiny form to be encountered in Research task.[1] Niantic later removed this Research.[2]
    • After the bug was fixed, the task was changed to hatch 5 eggs only and released again.[3] It was changed to hatch 4 eggs only 2 days later.[4]
