Summary

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

The summary, known as stats in Generation I and II games, and as check summary from Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! onwards (Japanese in all generations: つよさをみる check strength), contains information about a Pokémon. It's accessed from the party and battle screens.

The summary is divided into multiple screens, for different kinds of information. In Generation I only, the game always displays both Stats screens of a Pokémon, in order, before allowing the player to return to the party screen, and it's not possible to switch directly between the Stats screens of different Pokémon. Starting from the Generation II games, it's possible to press up and down to check the previous and next Pokémon, as well as press left or right to choose between different summary screens.

Starting from Generation IV, there is also a different version of the summary screen, with less information, when viewed during a battle.

Available information

This is the information available in the summary screen in all core series games.

Notes
  1. A Pokémon with no nickname is known by its species. In addition, there is a separate field specifically for the Pokémon species in all games, therefore the species appears twice for a Pokémon with no nickname.
  2. In Generation II, the only Pokédex number displayed in the summary is from the Old Pokédex (later known as National Pokédex). In other games prior to the Generation VII, the regional Pokédex number appears in the summary screen until the player receives the National Pokédex. From that point onward, the National Pokédex number appears instead. However, this does not affect the Kanto-based games, because the available Pokémon have the same Kanto Pokédex number as their National Pokédex number.
  3. In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the Ribbons themselves are not shown in the summary, only the number of Ribbons. In Generation V, if a Pokémon has no Ribbons, then the summary screen about Ribbons is not displayed at all for that Pokémon.

Regional differences

  • In the Japanese version of the Generation I games, the Pokémon's level is repeated in the first and second screens. In other language versions, the level is only shown in the first screen.
  • In the Japanese and Korean versions of the Generation II games, the Stats screen is vertically divided in two parts; in all other languages, it is divided horizontally.

Comparison with other game mechanics

In Generation I and II, the list of moves in the Stats screen only displays their name and PP, and it's not possible to change the order of moves in this screen. However, only in Generation II, there is a "Move" option accessible from the party that also displays the moves's type, description, and description (but not the accuracy, unlike later games), and allows the player to change the order of moves.

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the condition, sheen, and Ribbons of a Pokémon are shown in the PokéNav, not in the summary. In some of the later games, they are shown in the summary.

Prior to Pokémon Black and White 2, the markings were shown but could not be edited on the summary screen; they could only be edited on the Pokémon Storage System, as well as the PokéNav in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. From that game onward, they can be edited in the summary screen normally.

Trivia

  • In game manuals, the word "summary" is usually written in lowercase (or all-caps "SUMMARY" like in the game interface). As an exception, the manual of Pokémon Platinum has that word starting with a capital letter ("press the A Button to check the Summary of a Pokémon"), but there is also lowercase "summary" in the same manual.
  • In Generation I and II, the abbreviation ":L" is shown before the Pokémon's current level, and also in the text displaying how much experience is required to the next level. For instance, ":L25" means "level 25". However, the last level is shown as just "100", without ":L".
