I always wondered how do you catch Pokemon with a weird sprite such as in "Pokemon Adventures Gold and Silver" comic, Crystal the main character has a weird sprite Hitmonchan.

I think it's something that only appears in Pokemon Adventures and not in the games.
I mean, there's Spikey-Eared Pichu in HGSS, but that was event-exclusive
do you mean the star on Monlee's fist? If so, crystal gave a sticker or something to it for it to put on so she could always know it was hers

Unown is randomly assigned a letter when encountered.
Shellos and Gastrodon are west sea if found in western Sinnoh, Kalos, or Hoenn and east sea if found in eastern Sinnoh or Alola.
Deerling and Sawsbuck change sprite along with the season in Generation 5 and never change in later games. In later games, they're always spring form unless transferred from a Generation 5 game.
Keldeo is resolute form when it knows secret sword.
Vivillon's sprite depends on the real-world location where the player's 3DS was from.
Flabebe, Floette, and Florges have different colors depending on the color of the flower that they came from.
Furfrou changes sprite when groomed.
Xerneas changes to active mode when entering battle.
Mimikyu becomes busted when disguise activates.
Solgaleo and Lunala change to radiant sun form or full moon form when using their signature moves.
Alternate forms of Pichu were obtainable in events in HGSS.
