One Trainer recently discovered Alolan Dugtrio on a tropical island in the Pokémon Sun & Moon demo while zooming in with the Poké Finder.
This isn’t your typical Dugrio; unlike the original creature found in previous games, its region variant form has one helluva hairdo. Alolan Dugtrio has wavy blonde hair that seems to bounce effortlessly in the warm ocean breeze.
And if you think the above image is fake or Photoshopped or painted, think again. When Twitter user @ruiisuD first posted images of Alolan Dugtrio on Twitter, many people called him out. That’s when he published a video.
Not too many people playing the Pokémon Sun & Moon demo have encountered Alolan Dugtrio. But there’s a female NPC that appears on a beach in Ten Carat Hill who says, “There are some Pokémon that have different forms here in the Alola region.” She then asks the player to fire up the Poké Finder to see what she’s talking about.

Worth noting, @ruiisuD is using an upgraded version 2 Poké Finder, which enables players to zoom in on targeted Pokémon to take pictures — a new feature in the game that uses similar mechanics found in Pokémon Snap.
How do you like the looks of the new region variant Dugtrio? Are you, you know, digging it? Feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or on our social media channels.
