Platinum extensions?

Well, technically Magnemite and Magneton have been, too...

Maybe a special section for the ones in every regional Dex due to Platinum?

Maybe have it based on "since the generation they were introduced" too? TTEchidna 21:07, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

I think's better to include Magnemite and Magneton too... but pointing that they were absent only in Diamond and Pearl but they ARE present in the Sinnoh Dex. hfc2X 00:13, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Don't forget the Rhyhorn family. But should their new evolutions be included? - PDL

Pichu and Scizor aren't in the Kanto dex, so no. TTEchidna 22:23, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
Right then... PDL 22:26, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

I just added them, as I saw no reason not to. I just added a small tidbit in a trivia section. Gligar 00:35, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

But as well...

We shouldn't discount something like Crobat completely. Sure, it wasn't in the Kanto Dex, but it has been in every dex since it was introduced.

Since I doubt we're ever going back to Hoenn or Sinnoh like we did with Kanto and will with Johto... why shouldn't we do this? Or something... TTEchidna 00:59, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

I understand what you're saying. The only problem is that most of the Generation IV and Generation III Pokémon will be all on here... ht14 00:31, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
Exactly. If we followed the logic of "List of Pokémon that have been in every regional Pokédex since their introduction", which is a mouthful, we'd have several Generation III Pokémon and all but seven Generation IV Pokémon. Gligar 01:36, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Here is my logic: "List of Pokemon that have been in every regional Pokédex following their debut" That way, no Generation IV Pokemon are included, and only several Generation III Pokemon will be included. I'm going to go through with the changes. Feel free to change back if nescesarry User:Mudkip28
I was thinking that we shouldn't include the Gen IVs because they haven't been in any but their own. Once Gen V's regional dex comes out then we can do it. TTEchidna 18:57, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
Should we start creating sections with "since Johto" and "since Hoenn"? Gligar 10:44, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

It's clearly not a good idea. Just keep this list as is and make no more. hfc2X 03:29, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Well incase it is... These are Johto and Hoenn Pokemon here, that appeared in every Dex since their introduction (minus Gen IV)

Johto-Hoenn-Sinnoh Dex: Crobat, Marill, Azumarill, Pichu, Girafarig, Heracross

Hoenn-Sinnoh Dex: Roselia, Wurmple, Silcoon, Cascoon, Beautifly, Dustox, Barboach, Whiscash, Meditite, Medicham, Chimecho, Wingull, Pelipper, Azurill, Feebas, Milotic

Hoenn-Sinnoh(Pt) Dex:

Over and out. Gligar 16:00, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

I know that the post above is somewhat old, but I would like to give my support for this idea. There are most likely several Pokémon that were not in the original 151, but have since become standards. I don't think that anything from Gen. IV should be included, but Pokémon from generations before the current one would be nice to include. Maybe put a disclamer, something like "The Pokémon below only fit if the phrase 'every regional Pokédex' is taken less literally, and is instead interpreted to mean 'Pokémon that appear in every regional Pokédex since their introduction'. As every Gen. IV Pokémon in the Sinnoh Dex would fit this definition, they are not included. Also, Pokémon not appearing in a remake's regional Pokédex are not disqualified." Goldenpoke111 01:11, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
My suggestion would be to add a new section under the current article, named I dunno, "Since Generation II", and then list the Pokemon that have been present in every one since generation II, excluding any from the first list. Then the same for Generations III and IV. I made a proof of concept [1]. MK 20:05, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Hoenn Dex

Should Pokémon in the Hoenn Dex (technically) from 203-386 be included? If so, Pokes like Scyther would be allowed here. Gligar 18:26, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

No, that's not really an official extension to the Hdex. I dunno what it was for, but it wasn't official. TTEchidna 18:56, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
Maybe they did it because it was the only way to keep those Pokémon inside the game data. Maybe was the only way to do it at that time. hfc2X 04:41, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Pokemon available in every game without trading

If I made this list, would it be worth keeping? For the record, that is: Pikachu, Zubat, Goldbat, Abra, Kadabra, Machop, Machoke, Geodude, Graveller, Magnemite, Magneton Ryhorn and Rydon. Idantlol 22:51, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

No, because it's essentially a subset of this list. (And the list isn't 100% correct, but still). —darklordtrom 08:31, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Remove "since generation III"

Of course they're going to put Pokémon from Hoenn into the Sinnoh Pokédex. I don't think it's necessary... For now. When Black and White come out, sure, it'll be fine up there... CuboneKing 21:03, 30 May 2010 (UTC)


Should this page be kept after BW are released, if the recent bn article is true? If it is, this list will be pointless because no Pokémon will be in every Pokédex, the Generation Vs only appear in Isshu Dex, the Generation Is, who were the only ones on the true list will no longer be because they aren't in Isshu Dex. For the Generation IIs, IIIs, and IVs, it's basically the same thing. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 20:12, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

We'll see when it comes. Personally, I'd favour deletion over renaming to "List of Pokémon that appear in every regional Pokédex before Generation V". —darklordtrom 11:45, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
"List of Pokémon that appear in every regional Pokédex in Japan" :3c --Pyritie 12:18, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
Why " Japan"? In japanese versions of BW the Unova dex is also completely filled with Gen V Pokemon, so, I don't know why that name. --Gabo 2oo 04:27, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
I think Pyritie is referring to the idea that the first four generations are based on Japan while Isshu/Unova is based on the USA. Nytik 19:25, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

From Generation IV

Tangrowth, Mamoswine, Lickilicky, Yanmega, and Ambipom have also appeared in every possible regional Pokédex since their debut (Sinnoh and Johto). However, the template doesnt show an option for the Johto dex if Gen IV is selected.Vuvuzela2010 Δ 13:27, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Fixed.--MisterE13 01:32, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 Pokédex expansion

The Unova Pokédex for Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 will be expanded, similar to Platinum's expansion. PDL 02:52, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

appears in more than one pokedex

can't we just have a list that have pokemon which appears in more than one pokedex instead? some pokemon are repeated in more than one game, but not really appears in all pokedex. however all kanto pokemon will be listed since they appears in johto's too. -Pokeant 07:21, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

That's exactly what this page does. And no, while all of kanto have appeared on the johto des, they didn't appear in the hoenn or sinnoh dex.--ForceFire 07:44, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
my point is appears in MORE THAN ONE pokedex, not ALL pokedex. -Pokeant 07:52, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
This page isn't about appearing in more than one, it's about appearing in every regional dex, sans Unova dex.--ForceFire 07:58, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
Is it worth creating a appears in more than one pokedex list or changing this page? -Pokeant 16:00, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Actually, Sinnoh and Kalos also have Gen I Pokèmon in them. Not all 151 of them, of course, but at least one fourth of the Sinnohdex and one third of the Kalosdex. And Hoenn has quite a few Gen II's in it (mainly what we call "Johto-based evolution lines", half of them are also in Hoenn.) 2007!Unova (i see RBGY taking place in 1995, GSC in 1998, RSE in 2001, DPPt in 2004, BW1 in 2007, BW2 in 2009, and XY in 2012.) is really the only one without any previous-gen Pokès in it. Kaiko Mikkusu (talk) 10:00, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Doesn't make sense

Part of this article just doesn't make any sense. We've got the Pokemon that have been every Pokedex since Gen III, so that's the Hoenn, Sinnoh, and New Unova Dexes. Then you've got the Pokemon that have been every Pokedex since Gen IV, and this time you're counting Sinnoh, Johto, and New Unova. And while those 4 Pokemon have been every Pokedex since Gen IV (Sinnoh, Johto, and New Unova), the Gen III list of Pokemon, which you're saying is from Gen III onwards, haven't appeared in the Johto Dex. So by that logic, the Gen III Pokemon shouldn't be listed, as they haven't been in every Pokedex since Gen III. Don't Hug Lucario! (talk) 17:53, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

From what I can tell, they article's not actually counting Johto in Gen IV (or any remake, otherwise none of the Gen III Pokémon would be here due to FR/LG), it just happens that all the Pokémon in Gen IV that have been in all the regional dexes just happened to be in the New Johto one. Might as well put that there than in Trivia. - Blazios talk 19:01, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
Well then I think the Gen IV Johto Dex shouldn't be counted, and so the Gen IV Pokemon would be the ones that are in Sinnoh and New Unova. It would make a lot more sense that way. Don't Hug Lucario! (talk) 13:54, 31 July 2012 (UTC)


Mantyke appears in Sdex and Udex. Why isn't it in Generation IV onward? --Abcboy (talk) 17:40, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm guessing it is because it isn't in the HGSS Regional Dex, unlike the Pokémon listed under Generation IV onward. Should we still add Mantyke? Torpoleon (talk) 18:49, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
We shouldn't because it doesn't appear there in the Johto Gen IV Pokédex. And the article does state that the Pokémon that appears in Gen IV onward also appear in the HGSS dex. - Clubchloe1 18:58, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Should we remove everything from Generation III onward because none of them appear in FRLG or HGSS dexes? --Abcboy (talk) 21:40, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
It's a tough thing. Before the Unova expansion, the Generation IV was accounted for Pokémon in both Sinnoh and Neo Johto listing (as Unova had none of old Pokémon). Now as the expansion added many old Pokémon... Marked +-+-+ (talk) 17:54, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
We have two routes. One is to remove all of Generation III's or to remove Jdex from Generation IV and add the missing ones such as Mantyke, Budew, Roserade, Riolu, Lucario, Shinx, and a bunch of others. --Abcboy (talk) 01:42, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
There's also Buneary, Lopunny, Leafeon, Glaceon, Combee, Vespiquen, Buizel, and Floatzel. --Abcboy (talk) 03:52, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
If the Jdex was removed from Gen IV, the Gen IV list would just be everything from Gen IV that was in Black 2/White 2's dex. - Blazios talk 08:00, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
Which is similar to what Gen IV's entry used to look like. I'm all for that, perhaps with a note that a few were also included in the expanded Johto Dex.--MisterE13 08:27, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
I like this idea the best. Everyone else down for it? Torpoleon (talk) 20:50, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
I'd prefer it that way as wellPDL (talk) 23:52, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Should it be noted that NO Pokémon is in all regional dexes?

I mean think about it, in Pokémon Black no Pokémon from previous generations were included in the regional dex of that game.

Personally I think it should say something in the beginning of the article like that.

Yeah, later games do extend the PokéDexes, but it doesn't change the fact that no Pokémon is in the regional dex of the first games the regional PokéDexes were in. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 19:57, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Added a note roughly to that effect in the lede. Obviously, this list relies on the unstated assumption that the original version (BW, DP, GSC) and expanded version (B2W2, Pt, HGSS) are the same Dex, which it sounds like you're disagreeing with. We all know that no Pokemon would be on this list if it counted every edition of every Dex separately, so I think for the purposes of this list, it's better to lump together original/expanded as different versions of the same Dex. Do you see what I mean? (I'm not sure if I'm explaining myself well.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 21:42, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, that note is good enough. And don't worry, I do understand what you mean. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 18:09, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Missing pokemon?

Is there a reason that Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff, Lickitung and Onix aren't on the list of Pokemon that are in every Pokedex? - unsigned comment from Jsladden (talkcontribs)

As far as I can tell, Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff do belong here (but someone please correct me if I'm wrong). But Lickitung and Onix aren't technically in the Hoenn Pokedex; all 386 Pokemon at that time had numbers we could pull out of the data by hacking (which is why those numbers are on the wiki), but only those that appeared in Hoenn (#001-202) displayed their Hoenn Pokedex numbers on-screen, so they're the only ones that *technically* count as "in the Hoenn Pokedex". Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:39, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
(Rariouyai, (talk) not of Pallet 02:45, 19 January 2014 (UTC))Geodude it's another Pokémon that's missing in the list.
Geodude wasn't in the new Unova dex.--ForceFire 03:06, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Overhaul Idea

I was thinking about ways we could make this page more useful so I made a new listing here which is unfinished but gets the point across. I think it could replace this page or perhaps be a new page itself. It would eliminate the need for this page as well. Let me know what you think. EV Love (talk) 01:39, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Just remembered I saw this page once and thought the "cosmopolitan distribution"-aspect was cool, then realized that we've had BW since then, and figured this list got empty, which is why I came here to see what kind of messy state this page was in by now XD After seeing it, I thought to myself, the proper way this page should be done now for it to be interesting, is if it listed pokemon by the amount of regional-dexes they have been in. And no surprise, someone already not only suggested that, they made an example on their userpage. Love it! I don't see a reason not to overhaul the page to your suggestion, because as I said, it's the same thought I got here.--Saiph charon (talk) 10:06, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Page needs ORAS update

This page needs to be updated to show the New Hoenn listings for ORAS. --HoennLove200 (talk) 17:45, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

First bit of trivia

Don't Ash and his companions own Pokemon from almost every large set of non-legendary Pokemon? (except, of course, list of Pokemon that Ash and his companions ever owned) Can I delete the trivia for not being notable? sumwun (talk) 14:23, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Regarding the last trivia

I'm somewhat confused by what the last trivia point in this article is supposed to convey... can someone explain it to me? ht14 14:43, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Zubat, Golbat, Psyduck, and Golduck were in Diamond and Pearl, along with Platinum, while Magnemite and Magneton were only in Platinum. Hence, all core series games except for Black and White.--ForceFire 14:52, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Oh, it was recently added. Err, in any case, might be not notable since that can be seen by looking at the templates.--ForceFire 14:54, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I was puzzled by that. If it was what I thought it was, it seemed very redundant. ht14 19:50, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't think before adding it. sumwun (talk) 20:48, 12 July 2016 (UTC)


While I'm personally fine with the continued existence of just this page as well as List of Pokémon that do not appear in any regional Pokédex, there have been many suggestions lately to create different listings for different amounts of regional dex inclusion. As a solution, I started working on User talk:MisterE13/Alldex which allows for sorting by number of dexes.--MisterE13 16:29, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Not the same info. It's not the same value see if gen 1 Pokémon was in all generations that see if non-gen 1 was in all generations since debut. This article is easier to read than search what is the number of games a Pokémon was in among 800 rows. tl;dr: please no. --MeruM (talk) 12:13, 30 June 2019 (UTC)


Thoughts on deletion. This page is certainly not notable given that there are no longer any pokémon that fit this criteria, however this may change with a new Galar game which is exactly what happened with BW1 and BW2 and even between DP and Pt. (However I've always been a bit iffy of expanding the definition to any version of every dex). I like the idea above of the list about the number of dexes per pokémon, right now Pikachu is just as notable as Zubat in this respect. Having a list like the one above would also future proof the page if these pokémon ever came back in a future Galar game. So I think this page should be deleted and replaced with something like the list above JMVB - very sporadic editor since 2008 (talk) 14:56, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

If we can't have an article listing Pokemon in all regional Pokedexes (since there are none at the time of writing this), wouldn't it be easier to instead have an article listing Pokemon in multiple regional Pokedexes and ranking them by order that way? CrashBash (talk) 15:48, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

With the Zubat, Psyduck, and Magnemite lines returning, we might see them getting new dex numbers allowing for this page to remain. I'm a duck. That's pretty much it. -OdieboyDuck 21:17, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

Personally, I think this page can stay, the Expansion Pass is re-adding a few Pokémon, I believe there are Pokémon in every Dex after the New Unova one, and it’s pretty interesting trivia. HansonKerman (talk) 15:15, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
yeah id wait for the expansion to see how they handle the pokedex. if they dont actually add the new guys to it, id delete the list.Roserade57 (talk) 23:30, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
At this point, even if some are readded, the number would still be too small to be deserving of its own page in my opinion. Mr. Daikon (talk) 01:08, 10 March 2020 (UTC)
I think this page should stay, as I consider it also to be interesting trivia. Drquesarito (talk) 02:52, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Force Fire’s page List of Pokémon that appear in multiple regional Pokédex is what CrashBash basically suggested back on 28 December. I just updated it to bring it in line with SwSh. I personally would want to see this current mainspace article stay since it’s still useful for many of us, but in case there is more support for a multi-dex page than for an all-dex page, then I voice my support for ForceFire’s page. (Yet, this all-dex page could be best backed up to someone’s userspace than merely deleted.) ‐⁠‑SilSinn (TIDs768426S123446UM💬 02:51, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

I’m gonna need something more than an assertion saying the Isle of Armor Pokédex is part of Galar's Pokédex--KnightGalarie (talk) 01:09, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
Look for articles on Bulbapedia that confirm that Isle of Armor (the subregion) is part of Galar (the region) in the same way we treat the Battle Zone as part of Sinnoh and Sevii Islands as part of Kanto. ‐⁠‑SilSinn (TIDs768426S123446UM💬 07:02, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
Given that the reason for deletion is no longer present, I will just say that I object to deleting the article. As for Force Fire's page, I wouldn't mind it being added to the mainspace when they want to as a separate article. --Super goku (talk) 11:14, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

Bringing Back

OK, now that the Isle of Armor has been released, with the likes of the Psyduck and Magnemite line (amongst others) present in its own Pokedex, we have a choice here - revive this page and add them, or stick with deleting it. CrashBash (talk) 04:34, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

its technically still the Galar Pokedex. its like how kalos/alola had three/four different pokedex. so yeah, I say it counts. just specify which one theyre inRoserade57 (talk) 10:13, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
I think the Zubat, Psyduck, and Magnemite lines should be readded. Drquesarito (talk) 18:46, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
Drquesarito: Since Crown Tundra isn’t out yet, I would consider currently pointless to list Zubat & Golbat there (also I LOL at the fact that you completely forgot to mention Crobat from Generation II, because if Zubat & Golbat are in Crown Tundra, then Crobat is there too for Crobat is their last evolution stage). Not that I want to perpetuate what I feel is an edit war (honestly, I feel like it’s already an edit war), but I seriously consider it pointless to list here Pokémon whose G8dex (GalarDex, ArmorDex, CrownDex) numbers are yet to be known by reason of Crown Tundra not being yet released. So, if you aren’t listing Crobat there, then I’m removing Zubat & Golbat until their CrownDex (or TundraDex) numbers are finally published. ‐⁠‑SilSinn (TIDs768426S123446UM💬 01:17, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Changing this topic to focus on which regional dexes each pokemon has been featured in.

At this point in the series, no Pokemon has truly featured in every single regional dex. Making this page work has solely consisted of using the extended pokedexes of various regions, from Platinum to HGSS to B2W2 to USUM to the recent Isle of Armor DLC. It isn't really of use to say these pokemon appear in every dex when the base black/white dex just invalidates that for anything before Gen 5.

What I'd consider a far more interesting and potentially valuable resource is a table similar to that of exclusive moves which can show what dexes any pokemon has ever appeared in. Instead of being split by generation, it can be split by region, and within each region there are further splits based on alternate appearances of that region (RBY/FRLG vs Let's Go; GSC vs HGSS; DP vs Pt, Galar vs IoA/CT, etc). This can include the potentially interesting information featured here while also highlighting other notable trends, such as families like Venonat, which hasn't appeared in any region since Kanto and Johto; Shroomish and Purrloin which haven't appeared in any region outside of that which introduced them; or Abra, a pokemon which besides skipping Unova has appeared in the every single regional pokedex since its introduction, a data point far more meaningful than that of Generation 7 pokemon that have appeared in Generation 8. This could be included alongside the current contents of this page in the trivia section below the table as a way to keep the interesting information of this page a part of the new page. - unsigned comment from Genuine angus b33f (talkcontribs)

There's actually a page similar to that called List of Pokémon that appear in multiple regional Pokédex by Force Fire, but it hasn't been mainspaced yet.--Ratboy Jr. (talk) 01:11, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Isle of Armor Pokédex

Is the Isle of Armor Pokédex considered to be a part of the Galar Pokédex? I put in the Pokémon that are now in every Pokédex because they are in Isle of Armor, but KnightGalarie deleted the edits. So does the Isle of Armor Pokédex count as Galar or not?--Ratboy Jr. (talk) 01:28, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Which articles do say that Isle of Armor is part of Galar (as a sub-region)? That is the key to whether IoAdex should be treated as an extension of Gdex or as a separate regiondex (the latter has been done only to distinguish from one generation to another). ‐⁠‑SilSinn (TIDs768426S123446UM💬 07:01, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
I think for the purposes of this page, it counts as a dex for the region, though it is not a "sub-dex" like with Kalos and Alola. Tiddlywinks (talk) 12:03, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
I would say that Isle of Armor Pokedex and Crown Tundra Pokedex count as dexes for the region, though they have separate dexes, since the Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra are considered parts of Galar according to their Bulbapedia pages. Also, forms introduced in these islands for Slowpoke, Slowbro, Slowking, Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres are considered Galarian forms, which proves that these locations are a part of Galar. Drquesarito (talk) 16:00, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
But it’s still not the Galarian Pokédex. It’s the Isle of Armor Pokédex--KnightGalarie (talk) 21:30, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
And the Isle of Armor is part of the Galar region--Ratboy Jr. (talk) 21:40, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
You can keep repeating that but that doesn’t mean the Isle of Armor Pokédex isn’t its own Pokédex--KnightGalarie (talk) 22:36, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
What I mean saying is it's like the Kalos Pokédex, but instead of being split up by central, coastal, and mountain, it's split up by mainland and the isle (and tundra).--Ratboy Jr. (talk) 00:23, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes, its the exact same situation as the Kalos Pokedex.Roserade57 (talk) 07:02, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
It really isn’t.--KnightGalarie (talk) 07:03, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
