Is Every Pokémon in Scarlet & Violet?

Vincent Lau

This page explains whether every Pokémon is in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet or not.

Over the course of 25+ years of the Pokémon series, the total number of Pokémon creatures has exceeded 1000. For a very long time, it has been possible to obtain every single Pokémon in one game, but recently this has stopped happening.

This has caused many Pokémon fans to wonder whether you’ll be able to obtain all 1000+ Pokémon in Scarlet & Violet.

Answer: No

The official game page for Scarlet & Violet suggests that not every Pokémon will appear in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

When discussing connectivity with Pokémon HOME, the webpage states that only Pokémon that appear in Scarlet & Violet can be transferred from HOME to Scarlet & Violet.

It also recommends that players should check later to see which Pokémon will appear in Scarlet & Violet.

Seeing how Pokémon Sword & Shield did not include every Pokémon, even after all the DLC for it, it was inevitable that Scarlet & Violet would follow suit.

At the time of writing, nobody knows how many Pokémon will appear in Scarlet & Violet. But we imagine it’ll be at least 300, similar to Sword & Shield, without the DLC.

Here is an A-Z list of Pokémon that have physically appeared in trailers and other promotional material, alongside their evolved or unevolved forms. It’s a long list, so we recommend using the search function if you’re looking for a particular Pokémon.
