Last month we showcased some incredible photos for our Hoenn themed AR showcase, so I was very excited to see what was submitted for our new theme, regional Pokémon! Whether that is a Pokémon that is currently regional, is a former regional (like Plusle and Minun), or something like Scatterbug available via the postcard system, there are a lot of different regional Pokémon to choose from in GO.
