a way to track forms collections both in dex and when capturing

It would be incredibly nice to be able to tell if you have a specific form of a pokemon, rather than just whether you have that pokemon at all or not. perhaps this could be accieved by either having the pokeball icon be given a third possible state (such as maybe turning it blue or something to indicate that you have that species but not that form) or by having a separate icon which would indicate if you have that specific form of that pokemon, or else by having an option to make the default be for the pokeball icon indicating whether you have a givin pokemon treat different forms as different pokemon entirely. this would be incredibly helpful for people like me, who want to collect not just every pokemon, but every form of every pokemon; while with some of them it can be easily checked whether you have the specific form by searching the name of the pokemon in the box, for pokemon with a lot of forms like unown, arceus, sylvally, and especially alcremie, there are so many forms that it is kind of rediculous to have to search the box to see which ones you do and do not have every time you encounter one of them

you can do it on map by clicking on the pokemon name and seeing the mini pokedex. Example you encountered a alolan vulpix, and you have a normal form of it then it would show a pokeball but if you click on the name then the mini pokedex will appear and you can see it in that whether you have the alolan form or not

true, but it would be nice to be able to tell at a glance, especially when it comes to the normal form (or the form which the game considers the normal form), since that page doesn't actually limit itself to just that particular form (for instance, normal form rotom will show ALL rotom in your box on its mini dex page)ImageImage

this problem is also becoming increasingly relevant with each new set of regional variants introduced, where the different forms might as well be entirely different species of pokemon
