Pokemon GO Spinda
Spinda is somewhat of an oddity in the pokemon universe. It is pretty unremarkable in terms of strength or unique abilities, but does feature an interesting quirk in which it has a wide variety of forms. These forms differ in the marking found on its body, presented and arranged in different patterns for each pokemon. There are near billions of possible forms in the mainline pokemon games, so many had begun to doubt whether Niantic would end up putting Spinda into Pokemon GO. Well, it seems that they have, though it has significantly reduced the number of forms that trainers can encounter. Let's take a look at Spinda in Pokemon GO.
