Pokemon GO is getting ready for the warmer summer months with an upcoming celebration that will introduce Kanto Pokemon’s Alolan Forms to the wider world.
These special Pokemon have unique typings and abilities from their original Kanto counterparts, and originally appeared in Pokemon Sun and Moon. Niantic has yet to detail which of the Alolan Forms will be coming to Pokemon GO, although a teaser image shows silhouettes of the Alolan Forms for Pokemon like Raichu, Dugtrio, Vulpix, and Exeggutor.
Niantic’s jumping ahead a few generations here, though we can’t deny that the Alolan Forms will make for some excellent summer fun. Pokemon GO is going big with summer events this year. Not only are we being treated to new Pokemon, Niantic is bringing back Pokemon GO Fest (hopefully things will work out better this time around), and a slew of other outdoor events to bring players together around the world.
