This post talks about the latest API I have added to PoGoAPI.net, the Pokemon Form list.
What are Pokemon Forms?
Some Pokemon are available in multiple different forms which may have different stats and abilities. The majority of Pokemon will always be available in the “Normal” form which is typically the most common.
A small number of Pokemon will have no “Normal” form which may occur when their forms are unique to that Pokemon.
Common forms are as follows:
Normal – The standard Pokemon form
Alola – A form of Pokemon from the Alola region
Shadow – Pokemon which have been caught from Team Go Rocket encounters
Purified – Pokemon that have been purified using stardust after being caught as a Shadow Pokemon from Team Go Rocket
