Alolan Marowak in Pokemon GO is the alternative form of original Marowak, the evolved form of Cubone, found in the Kanto region.

Alolan forms were released within the mainstream titles Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. Centering in the Alola region, specific Pokemon from previous games were selected to have unique region-specific forms in these paired installments. Marowak was one of those chosen, alongside Vuplix, Ninetails, Raichu, Exeggcutor, Grimer, Muk, and more.

While Kanto Marowak evolves from Cubone using 50 candies, Alolan Marowak cannot be evolved the same way. The only way trainers can add this form to their team is via raid victories, wild encounters, and completed research.
