This is a list of Pokémon in the order dictated by the New Pokédex introduced in Generation II, putting the Johto starter Pokémon first, and following them with Pokémon native to both Kanto and Johto in a different order, according to their evolution.
Because many of the Pokémon native to Johto are also native to Kanto, for the most part, this is merely a reordered Pokédex list to place related Pokémon closer to their evolutionary kin. For example, in this scheme, Pichu comes directly before Pikachu and Raichu, and Scyther comes directly before Scizor.
This Dex order could be considered a precursor to the more refined regional Pokédexes of Generation III and IV, and the habitat-based list of Pokémon from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. Unlike other regional Pokédexes, it includes all Pokémon from both Kanto and Johto, placing those that don't appear in Johto closer to the end.
Interestingly, the order was never referred to directly as the "Johto Dex" in-game in Generation II, instead being called the "New Pokédex", where the National order was referred to as the "Old Pokédex". This discrepancy was validated in the Generation IV remakes, with several Pokémon not in the same order, to allow for the inclusion of the five Pokémon that evolve from Generation I and Generation II Pokémon by learning a move (Lickilicky, Mamoswine, Tangrowth, Yanmega, and Ambipom) as they learn their evolution-activating moves automatically. This new order can be found at List of Pokémon by Johto Pokédex number.
