What if Pokemon GO got its own variants?

Would anyone else like to see some Earth regional variants released via Pokemon GO?

Just thinking, since they're catching up on adding all of the current pokemon now, and their event pokemon have only become progressively more of a useless novelty (and rarely were more exciting than a hat anyway), it would probably benefit them if they were given their own variants to release on occasion instead. And unlike the dumb costumes, have them be transferable and able to be used in other games.

I think that would be a nice addition to extend the longevity of that game, and it would give us all more new pokemon designs to look forward to. Also fewer event pikachu- seriously, I do not need more of them.

As someone who doesn't play GO, nor any mobile games really, I wouldn't exactly be happy to see GO variants. Melmetal and Meltan are already of reach for me outside of trading--I really wouldn't like to see more Pokémon that are GO-exclusive outside of trades.

Edit: Though I guess the ability to breed these variants would make that less of an issue in contrast to two Mythicals.

XD I actually play GO more than I play the main series games and it was still kind of frustrating to me that Meltan and Melmetal are so out of reach because it requires Let's Go to obtain them (save for one measly Meltan they're willing to give us via research, and then it'll be nearly impossible to evolve) so I can get the disfavor there. But yeah, I figure variants wouldn't be so annoying due to breeding, and at least GO pokemon can be transferred to other games. You can't transfer anything in to GO.
