Pogo - Alolan Forms Coming!
Well, this is certainly an interesting development.
In game and email notifications went out earlier regarding Alolan forms of Pokemon found in the Kanto region (GEN 1) will be making their way into the game soon. I don't think will mean new Pokedex entries to fill, but different forms similar to how castform works.
Here are images of all the Alolan Kanto Pokemon. Not sure how this will change the current meta, but I can't wait to get myself an Alolan Golem!
