Pokémon Sun and Moon Evolutions for Alolan Forms and other new Pokémon

How to evolve both fresh and familiar faces in generation seven.

The first thing you want to do with any new Pokémon game is catch and see as any new creatures as you can, and generation seven is one of the most interesting to date.

Pokémon Sun and Moon's evolutions give a new spin on classic first generation creatures with Alolan Forms such as Marawak, Exeggutor and Richu, while many new creatures require certain steps in order to see their evolutions, from the time of day to levelling in specific locations.

Here's a list of every new Pokémon that can be evolved in Pokémon Sun and Moon, and how to get them.
