region's Pokédex (Generation I)
Kanto region's Pokédex (Generation III)
This is a list of Pokémon in the order dictated by the Kanto regional Pokédex, meaning that the starter Pokémon from Kanto will appear first, followed by Pokémon native to the Kanto region.
This Pokédex, which was introduced in Generation I, is the first regional Pokédex. The numbering in this Pokédex would serve as the basis for the official listing of all Pokémon introduced, with subsequent generations' Pokémon being added on to the end, with the name of "Old Pokédex" in Generation II and then the "National Pokédex" ever since, starting with Generation III. For more info on this expanded number listing see this list.
List of Pokémon by Kanto Pokédex number
#001 - #051 Bulbasaur - Dugtrio
#052 - #101 Meowth - Electrode
#102 - #151 Exeggcute - Mew
- The only slight difference in the Kanto Pokédex listing between Generation I and Generation III is that Magnemite and Magneton which were pure Electric-type in Generation I are now an Electric/Steel-type in Generation III.
