Developer Niantic announced that Alolan forms of classic Gen 1 monsters are coming, and they’ll be here in time for summer.

“Whether your forecast calls for rain or shine, we’re celebrating all around the world by introducing some special Pokemon from the tropical Alola region to Pokemon Go,” Niantic said on the official Pokemon Go website. “Get ready for some of the Pokemon originally discovered in the Kanto region to appear in their Alolan forms!”

Niantic hasn’t announced when the update will roll out but we know it will be in the coming weeks.
