Pokémon Sun and Moon Pokédex: How many new Pokémon are there?

According to Pokémon fan site Serebii, there are 80 new creatures in Pokémon Sun and Moon. However, that doesn't account for multiple forms and style.

For example, flying-type Oricorio can transform into four styles with significant differences. By sipping in the nectar of various flowers in Pokémon Sun and Moon, it can become Baile Style (fire-type), Pom-Pom Style (electric-type), Pa'u Style (psychic-type) or Sensu Style (ghost-type).

Pokémon Sun and Moon Pokédex: Don't forget Alola forms

Pokémon Sun and Moon also brings back some old favorites with new "Alola form" designs to match the game's tropical theme. That includes new versions of Rattata, Raticate, Raichu, Sandshrew, Sandslash, Vulpix, Ninetales, Diglett, Dugtrio, Meowth, Persian, Geodude, Graveler, Golem, Grimer, Muk, Exeggutor and Marowak.

Pokémon Sun and Moon Pokédex: Add one more for Marshadow?

Before Pokémon Sun and Moon was even released, rumors of Marshadow started leaking online. We still don't know much about this Pokémon, and the company won't even admit it exists. However, we're pretty confident it will turn up eventually, so we're adding it to the list, making the grand total 105.
