Although Pokemon Let’s Go revisits generation one and the Kanto region, it does take some content from games past such as the Alolan Pokemon introduced in Pokemon Sun and Moon.
Alolan Pokemon are back in Pokemon Let’s Go but instead of being everywhere in the wild you have to obtain these Pokemon through a different method entirely.
There are numerous NPCs hanging around in Pokemon Let’s Go looking for the Kantonian version of Pokemon of a certain Pokemon. All you have to do is go there with that Pokemon and trade it for the Alolan version of that Pokemon.
There aren’t many Alolan Pokemon up for grabs in Pokemon Let’s Go so it won’t take a whole lot of time to track them down if you know where to look.
All of the NPCs willing to give up Alolan Pokemon can be found in Pokemon Centers across Kanto. Here are their locations and what you’ll have to trade to get an Alolan:
- Rattata – Cerulean City Pokemon Center
- Geodude – Vermillion City Pokemon Center
- Diglett – Lavender Town Pokemon Center
- Sandshrew – Celadon City Pokemon Center
- Raichu – Saffron City Pokemon Center
- Marowak – Fuchsia City Pokemon Center
- Grimer – Cinnabar Island Pokemon Center
- Exeggutor – Indigo Plateau Pokemon Center
There’s also another method you can go through too that’s much easier depending on if you’re a Pokemon Go player. Players have to get to Fuschia City to the Pokemon Go Park before they can transfer from Pokemon Go.
