New female shirt, bag, hat, shoes and bottoms

A yellow Pokéball bag that fits on your avatar’s back, white shorts, orange t-shirt with floral pattern, sandals (no socks) and a wide hat with a flower. Looks great!

New male shirt, bag, hat, shoes and bottoms

A black and orange Poké bag, combined with the same colored sandals and hat, followed by a teal tank top and white bottoms. Interesting, to say the least!

This cross promotion has been confirmed by the following Niantic Tweet:

We don’t know if any of these forms will become available in Pokémon GO, but we sure would love if they did. ghost / fire green flame Marowak? Sign us up!

What is the Alola region?

The Alola region is a special island region, introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. Aside from it being a wonderful and beautiful area to explore and advance the core games story line, Alola features several special Pokémon variants, titled “Alola forms”.

These Pokémon are special forms of Generation I Pokémon that adapted to living in the island region, changing types, visual appearance and moveset. Here are all the Alola forms in Pokémon Sun and Moon:

    So, we’re just waiting on Gen 3, and they give us useless Alolan related stuff, which is currently very unrelated to the game… I’m starting to questioning why I still keep playing

    • Igglybuff!

      “useless”
      not so useless for Game Freak, it’s great marketing trick in their eyes :^)

      • Heydavid17

        Damn! You know what, you’re right! :O
        I suddenly feel like buying a 3DS with the games, with the money that I don’t have at all.
        Totally makes sense, for why I started to play a free mobile game. Well done Game Freak, you’ve convinced me! 😀

        • Igglybuff!

          *sarcasm detected*
          Well, I know few people who started playing main games because of GO, and I guess there are more

          • Igglybuff!

            In less than year, over 15 million copies of Sun/Moon were sold, which is almost as much as X/Y (around 16 million copies) in 4 years.

          • Kai von Hagen

            but x and y was sooo much better :<

          • Igglybuff!

            Although you can see what influence Pokemon GO had (and probably still has) on main games

        • Simone Amoruso

          You’re not the only person on Earth, you know that, right? Jeez, shut up, stop complaining. You’re embarassing yourself.

          • Partysaurus Rex

            Shhhhhh. Don’t wreck his world…

          • Joel Jensen

            Hahaha

    • S-GUTZ

      i dont know if you heard the news, but theyre doubling down and are releasing info this week. Have some patience jeez

      • Cooper McCollum

        This just better not be the new things that niantic had for this week. If so, It’s time to cry yourself to sleep.

      • Leo Luo

        If they don’t……………………..

      • Rob Freeman

        Lol

  • William Kelly

    Serebii owned you guys on this one, was shared almost 30m ago

    • AlphaOkami

      Serebii is the best Pokémon site on the internet, period.

      • Joel Jensen

        Exactly. Enough said.

  • Zappy-N

    i would kill to have alolan forms in go. most of them are pure meme magic (dugtrio, persian, sandslash, raticate, and exeggutor)

    • Storta

      *MEME MAGIC*

  • Partysaurus Rex

    Those shorts for guys… I just can’t. Who wears shorts like that?

    • Jack Harmsen

      I would, just to piss of poeple 😂😂

    • CrisFrancisco

      Basketball players?

  • hkmaly

    That would become useful in like, half year, in summer … now, they would do better if they release some winter clothes.

    … what the f-? Seriously the shorts and whatever is under them is single piece?

  • Greg

    That’s cool. We’ve just received first batch of snow here, the all new bottom looks so sexy.

  • Alaska Stark

    I don’t want my avatar to run around in a muscle shirt when it’s freezing cold here – how about a nice thick jacket? xDD

  • Christopher Andrew Moore

    Any ideas why it’s freezing and avatars walking around in t-shirts and shorts?
    Also is there a reason gyms and pokestops are not giving potions, revives,max potions or max revives? Had to feed 60 razz to a gym just to free up bag space thrown hundred pokeballs

  • Partysaurus Rex

    Bro tank ftw!

  • Dominic Perez

    Alolan clothes… *sighs*. I can’t wait for the next important update. :/

  • Leon119

    I love how people keep complaining about free stuff 😐
