Alpha Pokémon are a special, stronger variety of Pokémon.
They can be easily spotted: they are bigger than its non-alpha equivalent, are covered by a reddish aura and have a Alpha label on their head.
Alphas are really aggressive Pokémon, they will attack you directly if you try to approach them carelessly! Prepare your team and challege them in a battle when you spot them.
This special type of Pokémon will always spawn with some unique traits:
- - a random move from its Tutors movepool;
- - 3 guaranteed Perfect IV stats;
- - from 6 to 10 levels above their species max spawn level.
Alphas are meant to be middle/end-game foes, so stay away from them until you have a good team!
In addition to the drops listed below, Alpha Pokémon will also drop 1-2 items from the same drop pool of their non-boss equivalent (i.e.; a Alpha Pikachu can drop Electric Seeds).
