List of generation VII Pokémon
The seventh generation (Generation VII) of the Pokémon franchise features the addition of 86 fictional species of creatures to the core video game series in the 2016 Nintendo 3DS games Pokémon Sun and Moon and the 2017 3DS games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, with two further species introduced in a 2018 update to the spin-off mobile game Pokémon Go alongside the 2018 core series Nintendo Switch games Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, adding to a total of 88. Since Pokémon X and Y, all Pokémon have been designed by a team of roughly 20 artists, led by Ken Sugimori and Hironobu Yoshida. Sun and Moon take place in the tropical Alola region, composed entirely of islands. Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! are set in the Kanto region, the same setting as generation I. Pokémon Go is an augmented reality mobile game which uses the GPS and camera functions on the player's smartphone to display wild Pokémon in the player's surrounding environment. Pokémon number 722 Rowlet to number 802 Marshadow in the National Pokédex were released in Sun and Moon in 2016, and number 803 Poipole to number 807 Zeraora were released in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in 2017. Two Mythical Pokémon, Meltan and Melmetal, appear in Pokémon Go in 2018; Meltan appears in the wild in Pokémon Go when a Pokémon is transferred to Let's Go, Pikachu! or Let's Go, Eevee!, while Melmetal is only obtainable by evolving Meltan in Pokémon Go when the player collects candies. Some Pokémon species in this generation were introduced in animated adaptations of the franchise before Sun and Moon.
In addition to the new species of Pokémon, two new formes of Zygarde appeared in Sun and Moon—having previously appeared in the Pokémon anime: the dog-like "Zygarde 10% Forme" and mech-like "Zygarde Complete (100%) Forme".
Design and development
Pokémon Sun and Moon introduced "Alola Forms" of various generation I Pokémon. These versions are to represent "the different microclimates in the Alola region". The Alolan versions of Pokémon like Vulpix and Exeggutor have different appearances and types and were introduced alongside generation VII Pokémon. Alex Hern of The Guardian suggested that the developers likely decided to redesign various generation I Pokémon because, according to him, "fan connection with the original 150 Pokémon is as strong as it ever was, [while] the number of people who can tell a Pancham from a Swirlix is much smaller."
