We've explained how to get Oricorio in Pokemon GO.

With Pokemon GO's Season of Alola well underway, trainers have seen several previously unreleased Alolan species make their way into Pokemon GO. One of these is Oricorio, the "Dancing" Pokemon that has several forms based on several different dance styles. Each form has its own primary type that pairs with Oricorio's secondary flying-type label.

Pokemon GO trainers were able to find Oricorio in the wild thanks to the recent 2022 Festival of Colors event that ran from Mar. 15-20. Since then, this species has been appearing more frequently in the wild—though not all trainers have encountered the same form across the globe.

Here's how to add one to your team in Pokemon GO.

How to Get Oricorio in Pokemon GO

Trainers can get Oricorio by encountering it in the wild. As a flying type, it is partial to wooded areas like the local park or reserve. No Incense or Lures are necessary to attract it.

Oricorio, the "Dancing" Pokemon, has four distinct forms based on four different styles of dance:

  • Baile Style Oricorio is based on the traditional Spanish Flamenco style of dancing originating from the Andalusia region. Its name, "Baile" directly translates to "Dance" in Spanish. This is the fire-type form.
  • Pom-Pom Style Oricorio is meant to reference cheerleading routines sporting pom-poms on the ends of its wings and near its feet. This is the electric-type form.
  • Pa'u Style Oricorio is based on hula dancing, a style of significant cultural importance in Hawai'i. The word "Pa'u" is a reference to the traditional type of skirt worn by dancers. This is the psychic-type form.
  • Sensu Style Oricorio is meant to represent a traditional style of Japanese Kabuki dance that focuses on the fan prop—of which this form's feathers have morphed to mimic. "Sensu" is another name for that very folding fan. This is the ghost-type form.

Trainers will encounter different forms of Oricorio based on where they're currently residing. Each form corresponds to a real world region:

  • Baile Style can be found in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
  • Pom-Pom Style can be found in the Americas.
  • Pa'u Style can be found in African, Asian, Pacific and Caribbean islands.
  • Sensu Style can be found in the Asia-Pacific region.
