Whether you’re a newcomer or a seasoned veteran in Pokémon Go, you might be a little overwhelmed in the task to Catch Them All.

This is because the Pokémon available in PoGo are constantly changing due to some being attainable for a limited time and others not being released yet. Even some of those Pokémon that are readily available require specific in-game tasks in order to obtain them.

This post is intended to answer any and all questions you might have about a particular Pokémon. Anything from what a full Pokédex looks like in PoGo to which Pokémon are out of rotation and no longer accessible.

See a shadow in your Pokédex? Look it up here to find details on it. If it isn’t specifically called out here then it can be obtained in the wild.

As a bonus, at the end of the post is a summary of all Shiny/Alolan/Other variants that don’t add to your Pokédex total (unless it’s the first catch of said Pokémon).

Hopefully you find the post useful and please provide feedback and keep me honest when new developments occur; I will continuously edit this post.

LAST UPDATED ON 11/5/2018 (Inclusion Shedinja, Nincada family, and various shiny releases).

Post Notes:

  • Max means the total number of Pokémon available per generation outside of PoGo. Not all Pokémon are available in PoGo yet.

  • PoGo Available = Worldwide plus Regional; this number symbolizes a “complete Pokédex” in Pokémon Go.
  • Worldwide means Pokémon that have been available to be caught anywhere regardless of region (legendary Pokémon have been included in this number).

  • Regional means Pokémon that are only available in certain regions of the world.

  • Not Released means Pokémon not yet released into the game (Smeargle,Clamperl, etc.).

  • To calculate your personal “complete Pokédex” take the Worldwide number + the amount of regional Pokémon that you have (or have had) available.

Regional Notes:

  • Zangoose/Seviper and Solrock/Lunatone are considered regionals because although they have rotated, they can only be found in certain regions at any given point. Same logic applies to other regionals like Farfetch’d and Kangaskhan which were momentarily available in regions outside of their normal regions.
  • Plusle/Minun are not considered regionals despite being released as such (they are currently available Worldwide).
