In the core series games

Generation VII

A total of eighteen Alolan forms were introduced in Generation VII, all for Pokémon introduced in Generation I. In Pokémon Sun and Moon, if a Pokémon evolves from a species that does not have an Alolan form to one that does, such as Cubone, it will always evolve into its Alolan form and cannot evolve into its original form. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the Pokémon will evolve into its Alolan form while in Alola itself, but can also evolve into its original form while in Ultra Space.

While Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! take place in Kanto, players can import Alolan forms from Pokémon GO or receive them from in-game trades.

Generation VIII

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Alolan forms of Pokémon present in the Galar Pokédex are unavailable by normal means and can be obtained by transferring them from other games. Alolan forms of Pokémon included in The Isle of Armor expansion are available as rewards for finding hidden Alolan Diglett on the Isle of Armor, and Alolan Exeggutor and Marowak can be obtained from in-game trades with Regina in exchange for their respective Kantonian forms. In The Crown Tundra, certain Alolan forms can be obtained from Dynamax Adventures. An Alolan Meowth also appears in the NPC Pokémon Camp on Route 7.

Alolan Pokémon are not present in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, an Alolan Vulpix can be obtained after completing Request 83.

Generation IX

In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Alolan forms of Pokémon present in the game can be obtained by transferring them from other games. In addition, Alolan Exeggutor, Alolan Vulpix, Alolan Sandshrew, Alolan Diglett, Alolan Dugtrio, Alolan Grimer, Alolan Muk, Alolan Geodude and Alolan Graveler are all found in the Terarium as part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero's second expansion, The Indigo Disk, marking the first time Alolan Pokémon have been obtainable in the wild since Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. However, due to the Terarium being located in the Unova region rather then Alola proper, Alolan Pokémon bred without the use of an Everstone will result in the offspring being their Kantonian counterparts, and Exeggcute and Pikachu will evolve into their Kantonian forms rather then their Alolan forms.

The player may also trade most Pokémon they've caught themselves with Salvatore for an Alolan Meowth once they've invited him to the League Club Room.

In the spin-off games

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Alolan Raichu, Vulpix, and Exeggutor appear as Pokémon that can appear from Poké Balls in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Pokémon Shuffle

Alolan forms appear in Pokémon Shuffle. They all have different Skills and types from their original version - with the exception of Alolan Exeggutor, who uses the same type as Exeggutor.

Pokémon GO

Alolan Pokémon first appeared in Pokémon GO on May 30, 2018, with the appearance of Alolan Exeggutor. Initially, Alolan Pokémon were exclusive to 7 km Eggs and Raid Battles, but have occasionally reappeared in the wild since their debuts. In addition, the rest of the Alolan forms, first Rattata, Diglett, and Geodude, then later on Sandshrew, Vulpix, Meowth, and Grimer, have also infrequently appeared in the wild as well as in 7 km Eggs. Alolan Raichu appears exclusively in level 3 Raid Battles. Alolan Marowak initially was also exclusive to level 3 Raid Battles, but has since become a Research Breakthrough reward for the month of April, 2022.

On April 16, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time, players could evolve Exeggcute into an Alolan Exeggutor that knows Draco Meteor instead of a Kantonian Exeggutor, as part of the Limited Research Day, An Egg-cellent Spring Surprise.[1] This marks the first time in Pokémon GO that a Pokémon that is not a regional form can evolve into one that is a regional form. Similarly, as part of the "Alola to Alola" event running from May 25 to June 1, 2022, Cubone could evolve into an Alolan Marowak that knows Shadow Bone, instead of Kantonian Marowak.

Main series

A Kantonian and Alolan Exeggutor in the anime

Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon

Alolan Pokémon were present in Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon since the first episode. Ash first learned about them in The Guardian's Challenge!, where his class discussed the difference between Alolan Exeggutor and Exeggutor from other regions.

An Alolan Persian nicknamed Pershie first appeared in ‪That's Why the Litten is a Scamp!, where it was shown antagonizing a wild Litten. It reappeared in Dummy, You Shrunk the Kids! and We Know Where You're Going, Eevee!.

Multiple Alolan Rattata and Raticate appeared in To Top a Totem!, where they were harassing a farmer on Melemele Island, stealing his crops. Hala tasked Ash with finding a solution to this problem that doesn't involve battling the pests. Instead, Ash chose to battle the Verdant Cavern Totem Pokémon, Gumshoos, and enlisted its help to scare the Rattata and Raticate away.

Lillie received a Pokémon Egg in Lillie's Egg-xhilarating Challenge!. It hatched into an Alolan Vulpix she nicknamed Snowy in Racing to a Big Event!. After capturing it in the following episode, Lillie took her first steps towards overcoming her fear of touching Pokémon.

Racing to a Big Event! also featured the debut of Alolan Raichu and Muk. Raichu appeared under the ownership of Nina, while multiple Muk appeared to eat the pancakes dropped during the race.

In Getting the Band Back Together!, an Alolan Dugtrio appeared under the ownership of Professor Kukui's old friend, DJ Leo. Their musical performance drew the adoration of a wild Alolan Diglett, who later joined as another member of their DJ group.

In A Team-on-Team Tussle!, Team Rocket fought a trio of Team Skull Grunts over a Darkinium Z protected by a Totem Alolan Raticate and Ally Alolan Rattata and Raticate. While Jessie and James are ultimately unsuccessful in defeating the Totem, Meowth is able to steal the Z-Crystal while it is distracted.

An Alolan Geodude debuted in Treasure Hunt, Akala Style!, where Ash attempted to catch it. After a short battle, the Alolan Geodude punched Ash's Poké Ball into his face with a Thunder Punch and then ran away.

In A Crowning Moment of Truth!, while Ash and his classmates were visiting Wela Volcano Park for the Wela Fire Festival, the festivities were interrupted by a wild Alolan Marowak, who stole the Wela Crown used in a ceremony. While Kiawe and his Turtonator were defeated by it during their first challenge, they were able to defeat it in a rematch thanks to Turtonator's newly learned Shell Smash. After being defeated, Marowak gave back the crown and asked to join Kiawe's party.

Alolan Sandshrew and Ninetales debuted in Getting a Jump on the Competition!. The Sandshrew appeared as wild Pokémon native to Mount Lanakila, while Ninetales appeared under the ownership of Cerah.

A wild Alolan Meowth appeared in Acting True to Form!, where it came to Team Rocket looking for a worthy master. It manipulated Jessie and James into turning against Meowth by showing off its abilities, and also earned their favor when they realized it could use their Darkinium Z. When Giovanni and Matori contacted the trio for a report on their activities, the Alolan Meowth became intrigued by them. To this end, it slipped away, stole Meowth's savings, and flew to Kanto to reach Team Rocket HQ, where Matori made it her assistant due to its craftiness.

An Alolan Grimer appeared in a flashback in Turning Heads and Training Hard!, under the ownership of Tupp.

More Alolan Sandshrew appeared in Not Caving Under Pressure! in the caverns underneath Mount Lanakila. Lillie befriended a particularly large Sandshrew, and helped it reclaim its territory from an aggressive Tyranitar. After the battle, Sophocles's Charjabug found an Ice Stone, which the Sandshrew promptly used to evolve into Sandslash. Sandslash rewarded Lillie with an Icium Z as a token of gratitude.

An Alolan Golem and Muk appeared in A Young Royal Flame Ignites!, under the ownership of members of the Revengers, a heel wrestler group.

Alolan Geodude and Graveler appeared in Sparking Confusion! at Wela Volcano Park, having been driven out by rock hunters attempting to mine the caves in the area for the food the Pokémon eat. The hunters were attacked by their leader, an Alolan Golem, who began attacking indiscriminately. Thanks to the Ultra Guardians' Metang, however, Ash, Kiawe, and Sophocles were able to calm the group of Alolan Pokémon and stop the magnetic interference coming from the Park. The leader Golem later joined a trio of Hikers who volunteered to help with future patrols of Wela Volcano Park.

Pokémon Journeys: The Series

An Alolan Exeggutor appeared in That New Old Gang of Mine!, where it was caught by Goh. An Alolan Dugtrio also appeared in the same episode.

An Alolan Ninetales apperared in Leaping Toward the Dream!. It had wound up on Mount Coronet after being kidnapped and accidentally lost by Pokémon hunters. It was later caught by Goh after he calmed it down and gained its trust, after which Project Mew members took it back home.

A Trainer's Alolan Sandshrew appeared in Aim For The Eight!.

Pokémon Horizons: The Series

An Alolan Muk first appears in The Pendant That Starts It All: Part Two as a Pokémon that is aboard the Brave Olivine and regularly appears in episodes afterwards. Its main job is garbage disposal.

  • According to an interview with Shigeru Ohmori, regional forms were inspired by cases of speciation induced by region isolation, specifically mentioning the Galápagos Islands as a direct inspiration. In addition, Ohmori mentioned that Alolan Exeggutor was the first regional form of a Pokémon to be designed, and inspired the creation of other Alolan forms.[2]
  • In Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon, when a Pokémon undergoes evolution into a regional form, the background in the evolution animation is green, as opposed to the blue background used for all other Pokémon. Conversely, when a Pokémon Egg hatches into a regional form, the background is blue instead of yellow. Additionally, a different arrangement of the evolution music is played in both of these situations.
  • Alolan forms are the only regional forms whose original forms were all originally introduced in a single generation (Generation I) or region (Kanto).
    • Alolan forms are also the only regional forms where no member has a exclusive evolution.
  • Alolan Raichu is the only regional form of a Pokémon to have access to an exclusive Z-Move.
  • Alolan Geodude's evolutionary line is the only three-stage evolutionary line in which all members have a regional form.
  • Alolan Marowak is the only regional form to not share at least one of its types with its pre-evolved form.
  • Meowth is the only Pokémon to have:
    • More than one regional form with them being for different regions, as it has both an Alolan and Galarian regional form.
    • Both a regional form and a Gigantamax form.
