Oricorio is the dancing themed Gen 7 Pokémon which can now be added to your Alola Pokédex in Pokémon Go.
There are four Oricorio styles - each one taking inspiration from a different style of dancing from around the world.
Each Oricorio style, however, is regionally exclusive, so, if you want all four, you need to either organise a trip or trade with a player who has the Oricorio you're hunting for.

How to get Oricorio in Pokémon Go explained
Oricorio, the dancing Pokémon, is a Gen 7 Pokémon which was released into Pokémon Go during March 2022.
You can catch Oricorio through a variety of means during the Festival of Colors event:
- In the wild
- Complete the Festival of Colors Collection Challenge
- Event field research task - Catch 10 different species of Pokémon
The easiest way to catch Oricorio is to find it in the wild, so make sure to keep an eye on your Pokémon Radar and, if you're having trouble finding one, use Incense to attract Pokémon to your location. You only have to catch one since Oricorio doesn't evolve, making this a quick task if you're lucky.
It's important to note that you have to catch an Oricorio to complete the Festival of Colors Collection Challenge, so, even though an Oricorio encounter is one of the rewards for doing so, you'll have already added this Pokémon to your Pokédex.
If you decide to go down the field research task route, it's important to remember that each PokéStop gives out a different task everyday and the one you receive might not be related to the Festival of Colors event. Due to this, we recommend joining a local Pokémon Go since another player might have already found the correct PokéStop.
Though Oricorio will be available in the wild once the event has ended, we don't, at the time of writing, know what its spawn rate will be after the Festival of Colors. Looking back at other recently released Pokémon, however, there's a good chance it will be a rare Pokémon.
Currently live is the Test Your Mettle event, and along with it the debut of Togedemaru and Mega Aggron. Recently, we've seen the arrival of Season of Light and special research quest A Cosmic Companion. Elsewhere, be sure to use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. There's also a new special research quest - A Mysterious Incense. Finally - don't forget about the new Prime Gaming rewards every fortnight.
Regionally exclusive Oricorio forms in Pokémon Go explained
Oricorio is a regionally exclusive Pokémon whose form, in a similar manner to Furfrou trims, differs depending on which region you reside in. There are four Oricorio forms in total, with this form determining both the appearance typing for Oricorio.
You can find each Oricorio form exclusively in the following regions:
The Middle East
|Fire / Flying|
|Pa'u Style||African Islands|
|Psychic / Flying|
|Pom-Pom Style||The Americas||Electric / Flying|
|Sensu Style||The Asia-Pacific region||Ghost / Flying|
Oricorio being a regionally exclusive Pokémon in Pokémon Go mirrors how - in Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon - the Pokémon's style differed depending on which Alola island you caught it on. The Sensu Style Oricorio, for example, could only be caught on Poni Island, while the Pa'u Style made its home on Akala Island.
While, in the mainline games, you could change Oricorio's style by using specific types of nectar, this method is not available in Pokémon Go. Instead, you'll have to either visit the different locations Oricorio appears in or trade with a player who has.
Good luck catching Oricorio!
