    I'm sure you guys remember the odd hassle it was to obtain this item that aluded to Alola back in Kalos, but what exactly IS this item? What was it's purpose in X/Y, only to hint at the new region? What purpose will it serve now that we have it in its native land? I haven't completed the game yet so I hope I find out later, for now I have some expectations!

    I have two right now, one man gives it to you and I bought one, I hope it makes it easier to catch the tapus.

    This is very easy. They are souvenirs that are not normal. So they are strange. Very simple! very easy. Used for memories.
    I haven't got one yet, but if they're a key item, I imagine it's for an event. If not, maybe an alternate form for one of the Tapu Pokémon (to be released through an update maybe)?

    They are normal items, but they may still be a normal holding item, like the orbs for certain legends.

    When I saw one for sale I was like "Ohhhh yeah! I remember this." and instantly bought it. Hopefully it ends up doing something.

    I'm getting the same notion, maybe that Marshadow Pokémon coming up even?
    If not would it unlock new Tapu forms or something??

    I realy have no idea... I bought four of them at a 50% discount in that one mega store near the Battle Royale facility. I figured they have something to do with the Tapus (maybe having them hold them triggers something?), so I bought a bunch just in case.
    I didn't even know they also existed in X/Y lol oops

    I bought it early in the game thinking it would have to be something I needed in order to battle the Tapus. Afterwards though, it doesn't seem like it has a purpose and is just a filler item like the pretty wing introduced in B/W. "Though this feather is beautiful, it's just a regular feather and has no effect on Pokémon."

    @[member="❀Bloom❀"] That could very well be the case, but the fact it has an alolan air about it and was such a hassle to receive in X/Y speaks something different to me. I think it's something for an event Pokémon that will be revealed later! Otherwise, Gamefreak whatchu doin

    It did...FREAKING NOTHING.
    I mean, I bought one, and every time some tapu or UW showed up, I was like 'Yes! Strange Souvenir time!'
    IT.
    NEVER.
    HAPPENED.
    Goddamn WASTED POTENTIAL! I mean, Unown was bad enough, but this?! NO. Just...no.
    I'm really kind of raging over here.
    *Gira used Rage! It hurt itself in it's confusion!*

    ​There is no confirmed anything that this Strange Souvenir will do. It is completely useless. The most I could find is to put it on a Pokémon with Item Swap or Fling to get rid of it in a battle.

    Yeah, its possible that the Strange Souvenir is based off of the Tapu Statues (the statue thingies right at the altar thing in the ruins), but I'm not sure what it's for its useless, at least for now. Maybe its for an event, or maybe players with the Souvenir could get some special bonus or Pokémon.

    I'm pretty sure that it was just originally used to tease the new games. Having it return is strange however. Maybe it will be used to do something with the tapus

    It might be similar to the members card in platinum to get Darkrai, maybe it'll unlock a new area that'll let the player encounter Marshadow or another legendary released or unreleased

    So far it is a useless thing that is taking up space in my Bag. I wonder if it really has a purpose or Game freak is trolling.

    I think it was just an easter egg. I didn't do anything or unlock anything, and you can buy as many as you want. I guess it was just a nod toward the man in X and Y who gives you one.
