THE POKEDEX NOW TELLS YOU WHICH SPECIFIC PATCH OF GRASS POKEMON ARE FOUND IN
The Pokedex has always told you where a Pokemon’s habitat is, but in Sun/Moon, the Pokedex goes a step further- if you zoom in on the map while trying to track a Pokemon’s habitat, it will go as far as telling you the exact specific patch(es) of grass that that Pokemon is found in. This means that you no longer have to wander through the route aimlessly, battling waves of useless wild Pokemon while you wait for the low encounter rate one you are tracking to appear- you can now restrict yourself to a specific area, and make your search more efficient.
