Visible size variation!
XXL and XXS Pokemon are visually larger or smaller than their standard sizes when you observe them in an encounter or adventure with them as your buddy.
Sizes will now be tracked in the Pokedex
Once you catch at least three of any one Pokemon, your Pokedex will begin to showcase your records for the largest, smallest, heaviest, and lightest specimens that you have caught
New celebratory message for breaking records!
Trainers who catch XXS or XXL Pokemon – or find smaller XS- or XL-sized Pokemon than they caught previously – can enjoy a new celebratory message when they break their record.
Trainers need to catch at least three of any particular Pokemon to set a record for that Pokemon.”
