The conversation regarding Yungoos being a "Gen 8 Pokemon" is definitely reading into the Pokedex entry way too much. Zeta is basically right--the animal Yungoos is based on, the small Asian mongoose, indeed is extremely invasive to Hawaii; if you don't believe me, just follow that link. Or you could just think about it: what land mammal could possibly reach the extremely remote Hawaiian islands without the help of humans? The answer is actually none: there are no land mammals actually native to Hawaii, so Game Freak is going to have to take some creative license and go beyond the specific ecosystems that areas represent, which they have done many times before.The animal Yungoos is based on originated in Indonesia in real-life and was imported to Hawaii (Alola)
Corphish is based on the Signal and Louisiana crayfishes which originated in America (Oregon and Louisiana) but are now invasive to Japan.
