In the [[Alola]] and [[Galar]] regions, certain Pokémon species have regional forms known as an '''Alolan Form''' (Japanese: '''アローラのすがた''' ''Alola Form''), previously '''Alola Form''' in Generation VII, or a '''Galarian Form''' (Japanese: '''ガラルのすがた''' ''Galar Form''), respectively. A Pokémon in these forms are described as Alolan or Galarian—for example, {{p|Meowth}} in its Alolan Form is referred to as Alolan Meowth and Meowth in its Galarian Form is referred to as Galarian Meowth.
When {{pkmn|breeding}} Pokémon whose offspring has a regional form, the offspring's form depends on its parents.

In all other cases,as the offspring will always hatch in its regional formparent. When breeding a regional form outside of said region without holdingWithout an Everstone, the offspring will hatchtake ason the regular form or (in the case of Meowth), as thata region'sdifferent form.
