[[File:Orange Islands Butterfree.png|thumb|A [[Valencia Island]] Butterfree]]
There are certain Pokémon of the same type that have variations prior to [[Generation VII]], but they are purely aesthetic and does not affect the Pokémon's type, moves, Abilities, or height and weight.
* The [[Generation I]] {{DL|Arbok (Pokémon)|Pokédex entries}} for {{p|Arbok}} state that there are six variations of its face-like hood markings that differ between areas. Eight designs are known, but only four have appeared in the games, and only three of which appeared in main series games. In [[Pokémon Adventures]], Arbok gains a special ability depending on its pattern.
* In [[Sinnoh]], {{p|Shellos}} and {{p|Gastrodon}} have different appearances on each side of [[Mt. Coronet]]. East Sea Shellos and Gastrodon only appear east of Mt. Coronet, whereas West Sea Shellos and Gastrodon only appear on the west side.
* {{p|Mantyke}}'s Pokédex entry in {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s|Pokémon Pearl}} says that the pattern on its back varies from region to region. While it has the same appearance in all [[Generation IV]] games (due to using the same sprites), the "face" in the [[Generation]] {{gen|V}} and {{gen|VI}} games appears wider; however, all Mantyke look the same within each game, regardless of origin.
* {{p|Vivillon}}, which was introduced in [[Generation VI]], has a different appearance depending on the real world location the game it was created in is from.
* In the {{pkmn|anime}}, in the episode ''[[EP083|Poké Ball Peril]]'', a number of alternately colored Pokémon were seen on [[Valencia Island]], including {{p|Butterfree}}, {{p|Raticate}}, {{p|Nidoran♂}}, {{p|Nidoran♀}}, {{p|Vileplume}}, {{p|Paras}}, and {{p|Weepinbell}}. [[Professor Ivy]], the [[Pokémon Professor]] inof the [[Orange Archipelago]], studies these variations.
