First debuting in Pokémon Sun and Moon, certain Kanto Pokémon have adapted to life in the tropical Alola region, and have completely changed. They have become so-called Alola form variants. Alola form Pokémon share the same Pokédex number, but have a different appearance, as well as a different Type and moves they can learn.

Essentially, Alola form Pokémon are the same Pokémon, but with very different characteristics. So a bit like distant cousins. Unlike some other Pokémon forms, you cannot change a particular Pokémon from their Alola form to Kanto form or vice versa.

Alola form Pokémon do not exist naturally in the Kanto region, but you can obtain them by trading with certain NPCs (non-playable characters) found in specific Pokémon Centres. These NPCs will ask for the original Kanto form, and you can trade with them as many times as you want. Just in case you wanted a different Nature, or even a shiny…
