Pokemon Let’s Go: All NPC Gift Locations & Pokemon Alolan Variant Trades | Pokemon Guide

Just like with the past Pokemon video game titles, players can run into NPCs who may be interested in trading. These trades will require you to have a specific Pokemon in your party but unlike the past video game titles, the Pokemon trades within the Let’s Go series will feature Alolan variants. Likewise, there are NPCs scattered throughout the game which will give you a new feature or item. If you would like to track down Alolan variant Pokemon or specific items given out by an NPC or an aide to Professor Oak then check our guide down below.
