These regional forms were introduced in the seventh generation.

For years Pokémon fans have been clamoring for Game Freak gave it a twist to the design of some creatures, since, as it happens in real life, there were many who were eager to see known Pokémon with variants that adapted to the different climates of the planet.
Said and done, the seventh generation gave us alola formsbeing these regional variants of known Pokémon that adapt to the geography of the archipelago where the Island Tour takes place, while in it we can see that they gave us more than fifteen species known by many with a change to their skins, types, and stats.
Alolan Forms breathed new life into some long-forgotten Pokémon
On this occasion there will be no discarding, since, contrary to what happens with the paradoxical forms of the past, in this case we will not find any Legendary or Unique Pokémonbeing so that we can go quite quickly in this aspect, although it does not mean that there will be automatic discards, since, to give two examples, Raticate from Alola and Dugtrio from Alola have not even had opportunity to enter the top.
For all this, taking into account that we are going to take into account the performance that these Pokémon have in battles, you only have to continue reading so that you can discover what are the best alola ways that you will find in the different Pokémon games taking into account the trajectory that they have had:
Persian de Alola
we start with a Alola form that caused quite a bit of controversy at the time, since the incredible aspect that the regional variant of Meowth had made many have faith in the evolution of this Pokémon, which is by far the one that differs the most from the original due to the head and face it presents. Be that as it may, we cannot deny the obvious, since Alolan Persian is an amazing Pokémon.
This is something it achieves thanks to the fact that it is a Dark-type Pokémon that is able to resist quite a few physical attacks thanks to Thick Fur, which doubles its Defense. On the other hand, his high Speed makes him a good user of support movements that allow him to weigh down the opponent, either use Last Word, Hypnosis, Scream, Taunt, Foul Play among many others that allow even with lower statistics to battle the opponent.
In fact, the set in which it uses Hypnosis and then Machination can be devastating, although it doesn’t reach a higher level because the passage of time has made this Pokémon fall into disuse, Incineroar being a slower Pokémon, but one that does almost the same, but much better. Yes indeed, this does not take away this position at all from Alola Persian.
Raichu de Alola
When we talk about Alolan Raichu we talk about a regional evolution that manages to surpass its original by an abysmal difference, being so that although the Psychic type that it acquires gives it certain weaknesses that the Kanto variant did not have, the reality is that we are facing an amazing pokemon because it has better stats than this, being its Special Attack and its Speed the ones that get the most out of it.
In fact, it was not uncommon to see him with Chosen Spectacles or with the Life Orb to get the most out of moves with Lightning, Voltswitch, Lasso Grass, Surf, Psychic, Psycharge, and even True Wave. However, if Alolan Raichu shone for something, that was without a doubt his Tail Surf Skillwhich gave him double Speed in the Electric Field.
This has a double importance, since, on the one hand, in the seventh generation it managed to shine even with Tapu Koko being the definitive Electric Pokémon that outshone all the others, since as a partner He managed to be faster, power his Electric movements and cover himself well. On the other hand, in Generation 8 it was enough to use Dynamax and an Electric move to pull off this bonus on its own, giving us an incredible Pokémon in many ways.
Marowak de Alola
If in the two previous posts we have had a support Pokémon and another that is a Special Attacker, now we can see how Alolan Marowak shines as a physical marvelobtaining a combination of types that gives it several immunities and seven resistances, which makes it a Pokémon that, although it is slow, has Nitrocharge to correct thisSo it can do a lot of damage.
On the other hand, giving him the Thick Bone causes his Attack to become incredibly high, which combined with his high Defenses means that we can see a Pokémon that resists rival movements well along with the possibility of protecting teammates in the case of having Lightning Rod, which although it increases its Special Attack, it is not that it will use it too much.
Be that as it may, as star movements it has Igneous Blitz, with which it can devastate while not suffering recoil damage in the case of having the Rock Head ability, while with Shadow Bone can lower the opponent’s Defense. And if this was not enough, Earthquake, Sword Dance, among others make it a Pokémon to take into account.
The second best Ice-type Pokémon could not be missing from this top, being that with Snowfall it is capable of summoning Hail / Snowy Landscape. This might seem like something negative, since, after all, we are talking about a Pokémon weak x4 to Steel and with the worst weather of allbut the reality is that Alolan Ninetales has become even better than its original Kanto variant.
And all this is because he is able to invoke the Veil Auroraa move that is essentially the same as activating Reflect and Light Screen in the same turn, so if you have a Light Reflector equipped you can cause the opposing team’s moves to do half damage for eight turns, which can be equivalent to practically all or half combat.
All this is made possible thanks to being a very fast Pokémon with a great Special Attack, so once this task is accomplished, it will be able to use Blizzard, which will not miss thanks to the weather, as well as Lunar Force and other moves with which it can excessively deplete the opposing team. In fact, he may have the Life Orb to get more power out of it. Be that as it may, if this were not enough, It was the Pokémon that managed to bring to light the Ice types.
Muk de Alola
Ninetales is going to have to settle for second place once again, since Alola Muk is the best regional form from the seventh generation, whereas with its Poison / Dark combination it is only weak against Ground-type moves in exchange for being immune to Psychic-type ones.
However, it is not limited solely to this, since, after all, Muk has very good statisticsbeing Defenses and HP the ones that stand out the most compared to his poor Speed, which he doesn’t even use, since with Curse he can become much more powerful and stand out in Trick Room teams, this being where shine brighter.
And if all this were not enough, count on Gluttony to activate berries early, so the strategies that can start from this are multiple. And if this were not enough, we have a Pokémon that can make it with Noxious Puya, Disarm, Fel Shadow and other similar movements to get the rival trembles. In fact, if he had Poison Point and used Noxious Puya, the status change on the opponent was almost a given.
