Regional variant is a concept introduced in Generation VII. Some kinds of species of Pokémon had immigrated to another region a long time ago from their original region, and this caused them to change their appearance and their type due to the change of their habitat. These Pokémon with different appearance and type, however, only live in the region they migrated.

List of Normal Forms

These Pokémon with original native forms.

Trivia

  • Unlike their normal form counterparts, regional variants don't have gender differences.
  • As Generation VII consists only of regional variant counterparts of Generation I Pokemon, Generation VIII’s regional variant counterparts of previous Pokemon expands to beyond Generation I, the first one being the Zigzagoon line from Generation III.
    • Additionally, Generation VIII marks the first time for certain Pokemon’s regional variants to have exclusive evolved forms than their normal counterparts. Obstagoon of Galarian Zigzagoon Evolution Line is the first example.
  • The Dark-type and Ice-type are tied for the most regional variants, both having 8.
    • In contrast to this, the Grass-type and Fighting-type are tied for the least regional variants, both having 1.
  • Some regional variants are stated to be the original form of a Pokémon. For instance, Exeggutor are stated to have originated in Alola and Zigzagoon are stated to have originated in Galar.
  • So far, there are no Bug, Flying, or Water-type regional variants.
