What are Alolan Pokemon?

Alolan forms are regional variants of certain Pokémon species found in the Alolan region, which were originally introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon for Nintendo 3DS. Since the Alola region is a remote island separated from the mainland, certain Pokémon species adapted to the different environment and look a bit different from their Kanto counterparts. These Pokémon have different types than the original versions, so having both forms may put you at an advantage when assembling your team for certain important battles.

How to Get Alolan Pokémon in Let’s Go

There are two ways to obtain Alolan forms of Kanto Pokemon in Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! The simplest way is to trade for them via in-game trades with NPCs throughout your adventure. Various NPCs you encounter throughout your journey will offer to give you an Alolan Pokémon in exchange for its Kanto region counterpart. Most of these trades are available in both versions of the game, however there are two exclusive Alolan Pokémon available for trade in each version of the game.

The second way to obtain Alolan Pokémon in Let’s Go is to transfer them from the Pokémon Go mobile app. This option requires you to have reached the Go Park in Fuchsia City in game, as well as to have captured the Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

Alolan Pokémon In-Game Trades Available in Both Versions

There are six Alolan forms available from in-game trades in both the Pikachu and Eevee versions of Pokémon: Let’s Go.

Alolan Rattata Type: Dark / Normal

Level: 12

Alolan Geodude

The next Alolan Pokémon available for trade is Alolan Geodude. It is offered to you by a trainer at the Pokémon Center in Vermillion City. All he wants in exchange is a run-of-the-mill Kanto Geodude in return.

Alolan Diglett

Alolan Diglett can be obtained by trading with a trainer in the Lavender Town Pokémon Center. Give her a regular Kanto Diglett, which can be found in Diglett’s Cave, and she will give you an Alolan Diglettt in return.

Alolan Raichu can be obtained from a trainer at the Pokémon Center in Saffron City. You will need to give her a Kanto Raichu to make the trade.

You can trade a Kanto Marowak for an Alolan Marowak with a trainer at the Pokémon Center in Fuchsia City. You can find a Cubone in Pokemon Tower in Lavender City. Evolve a Cubone into a Marowak by raising it to level 28, and trade for the Alolan variant.

Version Exclusive Alolan Pokémon In-Game Trades

Alolan Sandshrew / Alolan Vulpix

In Let’s Go Pikachu, you will have the opportunity to trade a standard Kanto Sandshrew for an Alolan Sandshrew. Give a Kanto Sandshew to a trainer located at the Celedon City Pokemon Center to make the trade.

Transferring from Pokémon Go

The other way to obtain Alolan Pokémon in your Pokémon Let’s Go game is by transferring them from the Pokémon Go mobile app. To do this, you need to go to the Go Park, which is located in Fuchsia City. This replaces the Safari Zone from the original versions of the Gen 1 Pokémon games.

This feature allows you to get some of the Alolan forms earlier than you would otherwise. It also lets you complete your collection by transferring Pokémon that aren’t available in your version of the game. You may also want to do this to have extras of your favorites, or if you want to create a “living Pokedex” featuring each Pokémon alongside their evolved forms.
