Alola Form Pokemon
We've been getting a plethora of news in the past couple months on the upcoming new entries to the main Pokemon series games. We've seen character customization return, the professors and some protagonists, new Pokemon and the bad guys we get to deal with in Team Skull.
While these are all awesome and exciting things to learn, it's hard for me to not be totally stoked for the upcoming Alola form Pokemon! They are taking some of our favorite Pokemon and giving them a completely new look and typing for the new region as it is their way of adapting to the area. I absolutely love this idea and can't wait to see what other Pokemon get new typing and look.
So far we've seen the following Pokemon get new typing and looks...
- Sandshrew (Ice/Steel) along with Sandslash (Ice/Steel)
- Vulpix (Ice) along with Ninetales (Ice/Fairy)
- Exeggutor (Grass/Dragon) : It remains to be seen if Exeggcute gets a redesign or not. I don't think we'll see that.
- Meowth (Dark) : It remains to be seen if Persian will get a redesign but this one is very likely to get one as well due to the pre-evolution being different.
- Marowak (Fire/Ghost) : It remains to be seen if Cubone gets a redesign. I'm hoping Cubone does because they are by far one of my favorite Pokemon in the series and this Marowak makes that even more true.
- Raichu (Electric/Psychic) : It remains to be seen if Pikachu gets a redesign. I'm guessing no due to Pikachu being the main icon of the series.
These all have completely taken me by surprise and I cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us. I'm curious as to what happens when you bring in one of these Pokemon from another game. That'll be something we learn as more info is released.
