From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
This is a list of Pokémon in the order dictated by the Diamond & Pearl Battle Pokédex, utilized by the Generation IV cards in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. These numbers are seen on the bottom of the card listed as DPBP#. They were fully utilized in six TCG expansions, starting with Diamond & Pearl, and ending with Legends Awakened; one card from Platinum also has this number.
This list is a modified version of the National Pokédex, putting Pokémon related to one another by evolution next to one another. For example, while Pichu does not appear until #172 in National Pokédex order, it is placed before Pikachu here, at #025. Several Pokémon with form differences are also counted separately, though this does not apply to all of them; due to this, this list has 39 more entries than the National Pokédex at the time.
List of Pokémon by Diamond & Pearl Battle Pokédex number
#001 - #050 Bulbasaur - Bellossom

#400 - #447 Anorith - Deoxys
#448 - #500 Turtwig - Chatot
#501 - #531 Spiritomb - Shaymin
- Kadabra is technically unnumbered, as it has not been released on a card since Skyridge. However, as Abra is #069, and Alakazam is #071, Kadabra is assumed to be #070.
- Eevee's evolutions are reordered from their National Pokédex order to instead be by TCG type: Grass, Fire, Water, Lightning, Psychic, Darkness.
- Although the list resembles closely the National Pokédex order with related evolution stages moved close to each other, the Aipom, Shuckle and Qwilfish lines have been slightly moved. Girafarig has experienced a drastic move, shifted all the way down into the middle of Generation IV Pokémon families.
- Each of Unown's 28 forms are given separate entries, as are Castform's four, Deoxys's four, Burmy's three, Wormadam's three, Shellos's two, and Gastrodon's two. These total an additional 39 entries. Cherrim is only given one slot; its Overcast form is not counted. Spinda's other 4,294,967,295 patterns are not included, for obvious reasons.
- Rotom's five alternate forms, Giratina's Origin Forme, and Shaymin's Sky Forme are not present on the list, as it was finalized before the new forms were revealed. It is likely the system was dropped for this reason. Arceus is absent from the list entirely.
