  • This is the first Pokémon game that doesn't feature gyms.
  • Solgaleo and Lunala are the first legendary Pokémon to have devolved forms.
    • They're also the first legendary Pokémon to be owned by another character before letting the player character catch it, originally belonging to Lusamine before taken by Lillie.
  • The shaking grass feature has returned.
  • Every time a Pokémon is caught or evolves, the Pokédex will register it automatically.
  • This is the first game to stop having dex entries for transferred Pokémon, since the Bank has been upgraded to have the National Dex feature.
