Via the new 7KM Eggs, Alolan Grimer, Meowth, Sandshrew and Vulpix families are now available in Pokémon GO. Alolan Exeggutor and Rattata are now spawning in the wild.
Alolan Geodude, Diglett, and their evolutions are currently unavailable, but Niantic have confirmed that they will start spawning in the wild at GO Fest next month. Alolan Raichu and Marowak are also unavailable, but the in-game announcement did mention Alolan Raids (likely the way these two Pokémon will be released).

Niantic also confirmed that the other two members of the Legendary Golem trio, Regirock and Registeel, will appear later in the summer. SOURCE: Niantic

8. WEEKEND TRIVIA
This Pokémon gazes into a flame to reach a state of focus. That focus allows it to use psychic powers to create a fiery vortex of over 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Who's that Pokémon: Victini, Darmanitan, Solrock, or Delphox?
Voters were in favor of Solrock. However, the correct answer is Delphox. TRIVIA SOURCE: The Pokémon Company's Official Pokédex
