Favorite Alolan Variants

    So with powercreeping being a constant problem, one of GameFreak's solutions to this is to introduce Alolan Variants. However some people consider this as just another form of powercreeping of older Pokemon as they play more like new Pokemon, some resembling very little of their older Kantonian counterparts playstyle. The anime and Adventures manga have also touched on this, showing a huge difference in terms of personalities between Alolan and Kantonian Pokemon. Regardless, for most fans opinion tends to be either commonly positive or negative based on each Alolan variant rather than as a whole. For example, a popular one is Alolan Meowth who has quite an electrifying personality lol in the anime and currently serves as Sun's strongest battler in the Pokemon Adventures manga. Thanks to the manga and the anime, Alolan Meowth has cemented as one of my personal favorites. So what's your favorite Alolan Variant?

    Sun's Alolan Meowth, Cent, absolutely pissed for what Guzma's Golisopod did to his coin.

    Ninetales, it is incredibly majestic and elegant, has a great Hidden Ability, and its typing is unique. I also really like Sandslash and Marowak, although the only regional variants I actually dislike are Dugtrio, Raticate and Persian.

    Alola Golem. It's not too badass nor elegant nor "memey". It's the most underrated one but it looks amazing and its signature Ability is fun to mess with

    I have to say Alolan Raichu. Psychic/Electric is a nice combination and it's adorable how it plainly looks like a doll.

    Ninetales has a very majestic appearance in its Alolan form. I also like the colorful look of Muk. Marowak is cool too.

    I like Alolan Exeggutor, not necessarily for the Pokemon itself but the jokes around it's heights that both GameFreak and the fans make. For example in Let's Go, you can't see Alolan Exeggutor's head on-screen. In reddit posts I believe there was this funny thing they did where they stack Alolan Exeggutor's necks into a thread post.

    My favorite Alolan Forms would have to be: Raichu, Marowak, Ninetails, and Sandslash.

    My first thought was Rattata and Raticate.

    For some reason i enjoy Rattata's mustache and Raticates Chubby Cheeks :D

    Plus the one i used in my first Playthrough of Moon was Pretty Strong.

    I like Alolan Persian. I don't know about you but I do like his garfield-rounded-face look but I also like some other little details such as his blue gem. I always thought that was a cool little detail.

    Alolan Ninetales is my favourite in just about every aspect, design, typing, Pokedex entry, everything.

    Then: Vulpix, Sandslash, Snadshrew, Marowack, Exeggutor and Rattata (not Raticate)

    The rest are terrible in my opinion.
    Did they have an episode in the anime yet were Team Rocket's Meowth impersonates an Alolan one by having Jessie and James paint him purple?

    They had an episode where an Alola Meowth is using TRio to get to Giovanni but Meowth doesn’t like it taking his goal

    Proof that Alolan Meowth's are the most badass Nyarth's to ever live.
