List of Pokémon with form differences

Some Pokémon have major variations between individuals, known as forms (Japanese: すがた form). These variations all have differing appearances and are recognized by the Pokédex. Some Pokémon with form differences can change between their forms (e.g. Castform), while others are fixed and cannot be changed (e.g. Unown). Other form differences include: gender differences, regional forms, Mega Evolutions, and Gigantamax forms.

Various forms of Unown

Overview

Form differences were introduced in Generation II, in which Unown was the only Pokémon to have them. All subsequent generations have introduced multiple Pokémon with form differences. Pokémon able to change between their forms were first introduced in Generation III.

At times, these differences are purely cosmetic and have no bearing on the Pokémon's attributes besides its appearance; however, several Pokémon differ in stats, type, Ability, moves they can learn, etc. depending on their form. Among these are several Legendary and Mythical Pokémon, whose alternate forms are usually named using the French word Forme (Japanese: フォルム Forme) instead.

Starting in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, every official different form has a name given by the Pokédex, though Arceus, Genesect, and Furfrou's alternate forms were not recognized separately in the Pokédex until Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. In Generations II, III, and IV, whichever form is encountered first will be the sprite displayed in the Pokédex by default; for example, if West Sea Shellos was encountered first, its sprite will appear in the Pokédex by default, whereas if East Sea Shellos was encountered first, its sprite will. In Generation II, the Pokédex has a separate Unown Mode to show the forms of Unown. In Generation IV, the "forms" section was added to the individual entries of each Pokémon, showing form differences that have been encountered, as well as gender differences. In Generation V, the forms section returns and displays Shiny Pokémon as separate forms (if they have been encountered); additionally, the sprite displayed in the Pokédex can be changed using the forms section. In Pokémon Black and White, the forms section is only available after interacting with Cedric Juniper in Mistralton City, while in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, it is available from the start. Starting in Generation VI, the Pokédex does not have a separate forms section; instead, a Pokémon's forms (including Shiny forms and gender differences) that have been encountered can be switched between in the Pokémon's entry, and this changes the image shown in the Pokédex.

Additionally, there exist form-like transformations and technical forms that are not recognized by the Pokédex, but otherwise appear or behave like unique forms or are treated as such in game code.

Pokémon with technical forms

Some Pokémon have forms which are only distinguished internally within the game's programming. Most of these forms are not visually distinct from one another, but may still have an impact on gameplay.

Pikachu and Eevee

The partner Pikachu and partner Eevee given to the player in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! are each considered separate forms internally. They use higher quality models, have higher base stats, and are unable to evolve, along with many other minor differences.

In other games

Pokémon Shuffle

Main article: List of Pokémon by Pokémon Shuffle list number

In Pokémon Shuffle, Pokémon with different forms have different Skills and can have different Attack Powers and max levels.

Most Pokémon with forms in the core series games also have those forms in Pokémon Shuffle. Many Pokémon have a "Winking" form, notably including most of the first partner Pokémon. There are also a few Pokémon with a "Spooky" or "Holiday" form. Pikachu has a large variety of forms, mostly unique to Pokémon Shuffle.

Pokémon GO

Main article: List of Pokémon with form differences (GO)

The majority of Pokémon in Pokémon GO have their forms determined at the time of capture and impossible to change, with the exceptions of Shaymin, Furfrou, and Hoopa. Although every species has one Pokédex entry each, a Pokémon is considered different from any of its alternate forms; this means that even if a player has one form of the Pokémon species registered in the Pokédex, an alternate form will still appear as a silhouette in the Nearby screen, and receiving one in a trade will be considered a Special Trade.

Trivia

  • As of Generation IX, four Pokémon have form differences that remain unobtainable. These are:
  • Some of the Pokémon with form differences have unique distinctions:
    • Darmanitan and Tauros are the only Pokémon whose regional forms have further form differences.
    • Urshifu is the only Pokémon whose Gigantamax form has form differences.
      • Although Toxtricity and Alcremie have multiple alternate forms, they each have only one Gigantamax form.
    • Koraidon and Miraidon have the highest number of forms that are obtainable in some capacity yet unusable in battle, as they each use three forms solely for travel and are obtained in their fourth 'low-power' forms, yet can only battle in their ‘high-power’ forms.
      • Rotom has five forms that are unusable in battle (Pokédex, Phone, Bike, Rotomi, Drone), but Rotomi and Rotom Drone are completely unobtainable.
