List of Pokémon with cross-generational evolutions

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Pokémon that evolve into a Pokémon originating from a different generation. For example, Pichu (a Generation II Pokémon) evolves into Pikachu (a Generation I Pokémon).

A few of these Pokémon, as a result of new evolutions, become a part of evolutionary families with branched evolutions. Those Pokémon which evolve into a Pokémon of a previous generation, instead of from it, are specifically baby Pokémon.
