Alola Forms Are Coming To Pokemon GO! Vulpix Hype!

Niantic, the makers of Pokémon GO, announced on Monday that Pokémon from the Alola region are coming to the wildly popular mobile game.

Alolan forms of Pokémon first appeared in the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games featuring unique versions of Generation 1 Pokémon from the Kanto region.

I am so excited. The Alolan Vulpix literally took the world by storm in its elegant white form when it first came out and is now one of the most popular Pokémon ever!
