As these are regional variants of existing Pokemon, they aren’t technically considered ‘new’ species in the Galar region. That’s why they’re listed under the same Pokedex number as their original forms.
Having said that, most of these Galarian forms will have alternate types and attacks to choose from, so you’ll need to pay attention to their differences before using them in PVP Battles or Raids.
That’s everything you need to know about the Gen 8 Pokemon in Pokemon Go! We’ll keep this list updated as more species make their debuts, so make sure you come back soon.
