Differences of the Original and Galarian Forms

The original forms of a Pokemon go through a change in appearance, type, abilities and even the moves they can learn in regional forms.

Some Pokemon get an additional type; some are changed completely. As the type changes, the abilities also change.

In some special cases, regional forms have a third evolution that the original does not. Take Linoone as an example, that has Obstagoon evolution. The tables below show comparison between the Orginal and Galarian Forms.
