Alolan Forms

Vincent Lau

Normal Vulpix are Fire-type, but Alolan Vulpix are Ice-type.

During your travels in Alola, you may come across Pokémon found in earlier games that have changed drastically to adapt to their Alolan habitats. These Pokémon are classified as Alolan Forms .

Alolan Form Pokémon share the same Pokédex number as the original Pokémon, but may have different stat distributions or types. Because Alolan Form Pokémon have become this way to match their surroundings, they cannot suddenly change to their originally discovered form and vice versa.

Note : Hidden Abilities are denoted with an asterisk (*).
