Do glitches count like Pokemon? I think not, therefore I think we should take the Glitch list out. Gambler 01:41, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

If we had a separare article for an actual list of glitch Pokémon, and not just glitches, we should use that... It is a valid resource, some people might want a list of glitch Pokémon. And it's one of the few not on the template itself. Tom Temprotran 05:47, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
Not convinced. Glithes are not Pokemon, they are just that, glithes. If a person is looking for glitches they can type the word and look at them, but people looking for actual pokemon may think that glitches can be used to fight, trade or anything that we know they don't do if they find the link from the actual "List of Pokémon" page. Gambler 06:27, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
Eh, well, in RB they could technically be. Not really now. I dunno. Remove it, I guess. Tom Temprotran 07:50, 17 November 2006 (UTC)


Should we perhaps use the sortable table type to merge all of these into a few articles? We could have:

  • by name (English, Japanese, German, French, and Korean)
  • by number (Kanto/National, Johto, Hoenn, Fiore, and Sinnoh)
  • by index number (all 4 generations)
  • by physical attributes (color, weight, height, and habitat)
  • stats (base stats, catch rate, EVs, gender, and species)

It may seem silly, but I love being able to organize and sort things. Tell me what you all think. It could save bandwidth. And if it seems tedious, I'd be willing to do it all :P MK 08:56, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Well, it'd become ridiculously hard to add new Pokédexes... And the index number doesn't include some, the same as the regional dexes and Browser. (You know, as Sinnoh only has the 151, Kanto as well, Johto the 251, Hoenn the 202, and the Browser 213. By name, well, since we have the non-English name ones technically being in National Dex order... eh. Weight and height might be able to fit in with each other, but only if you could get it to recognize that 1'11" is smaller than 2'0". The base stats are hard enough together, it'd be crazy to put in their gender ratios, species, and all of that, too.
We can't consolidate them all into a tiny box. This isn't Senor Cardgage Mortgage. And I dunno just how much it'd save bandwidth. If anything, the whole page would take longer to load than the individual ones, and it'd mess up the Pokémon infobox.
Though if you wanted to go ahead and organize a list of Pokémon by type... Tom Temprotran 11:03, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
I didn't mean to make it all one big list, that'd be insane. I'll sandbox some stuff to see if it works. MK 22:41, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
If you need the info it is all in my userpage. Just edit what you need, that's what I'm doing for most of the lists. In fact I have most of the list ready in my drive, I'm just waiting for official names of the new PKMN. Gambler 01:00, 6 February 2007 (UTC)


LIST OF POKéMON BY TYPE!! Sorry But I Have To Say That This a Key Sorting That Has Been Missed!. Tesh 19:54, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Hmm. I suppose it'd be a good idea. But then, how, exactly, would we list them? We do have separate lists for Pokémon of each type on the pages for the individual types... Anyone else think that they should be on an all-encompassing type page as well? TTEchidna 04:48, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

In the Pokédex, there is an option that allows Pokemon to be sorted via type. The order goes like this: First Type:

  • Normal
  • Normal/Flying*
  • Fighting
  • Poison
  • Ground
  • Rock
  • Bug
  • Ghost
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Grass
  • Electric
  • Psychic
  • Ice
  • Dragon
  • Dark
  • Note that a secondary Flying-type goes afer the pure first type.

Tesh 12:43, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Well still, it's a good idea in theory, but then how would we order the secondary types? I mean, I imagine we could order it like what was done in FRLG... but eh. We'll see is all I can say. TTEchidna 02:24, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
Sure we can. We do the sort of thing that is done here (without the nonexistant types) Gligar 19:21, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
It probably needs a different layout with the names of the Pokémon, but here's my proposal, List of Pokémon by type. Gligar 17:13, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
By the way, TTEchidna, LOPBG is overdue for the mainspace. You just have to make a template off of the subpage template and then find+replace User:TTEchidna/LOPBG/Template with the new template name in Word or NotePad. Gligar 17:13, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

List of Pokemon by evolution method

Just an idea. Gligar 17:40, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Planning. TTEchidna 19:49, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Orre dex

Should there by a list of the Orre's Pokedex-like listing (the Strategy Memo) which is basically "List of Pokemon by name" excluding Generation IV Pokémon. Just an idea. Gligar 19:21, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Eh, no. That'd be dumb. Alphabetically alone is fine, if people don't recognize a Pokémon that's Gen IV... Hrm. If we really really need to I'd say color-coding by generation would be better, but discussing the colors used here would be better to do first. TTEchidna 19:50, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
That's simple. Each Generation has its respective color used here. And the color-coding by generation could expand to other lists. One last thing: Should "Odex" redirect to "Pokelist by name" or "Strategy Memo"?Gligar 22:18, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

List of Pokémon Availible by region?

Since this is sometimes different than the Pokémon in the regional dex, and always different than the Pokémon in the national dex, should we have this? And if we do, should we have Kanto (and later Johto?) discriminate by Generation? The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 01:02, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon by habitat?

Why isn't the Pokémon by habitat list included on here? It could go under a Gen III heading, or just as a special. NikNaks 12:13, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Gen IV Pokémon would cause problems. tc²₆tc26 12:22, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't see why it would. The point is already made at the top of that page anyway. NikNaks 14:49, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
If anyone's interested, I made a version of said list with the Sinnoh pokémon added. Some page numbers are off, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with it. Obviously, I may have made some mistakes, or suggestions for better groupings might be suggested, and I'm open to criticism. Here's the list. NikNaks 20:54, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon by...

I think we should have a list of Pokemon that can't learn any TM/HMs. Comments?--Gou 06:21, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Every Pokémon (with the exception of Magikarp, Caterpie, Weedle, Kakuna, Metapod, Wurmple, Cascoon, Silcoon and Feebas) can learn any HM/TM's--ForceFire 06:25, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
There's also Unown, Wobbuffet, Wynaut. Also, Feebas can learns TMs. But that's not the point. It is a characteristic exclusive to certain Pokemon, and I believe that it merits a list/artice.--Gou 16:06, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Too small for an article. Just right for a section. —darklordtrom 22:58, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

We need a lsit of Pokemon in Spanish

Since we now have the Spainsh language version, we are thinking of getting the list of Pokemon in Spanish. What do you think? Giratina Joe - Question Giratina Here- DO NOT DISTURB IT 10:17, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

A list of localized Spanish Pokémon names? As far as we can tell, the names of the Pokémon are the same in Spanish as they are in English; this is why List of Spanish Pokémon names redirects to List of Pokémon by National Pokédex number. Trust me, if the names were different in Spanish, there would have been a fully-compiled list of such names a long time ago. --Shiningpikablu252 16:55, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
If I may comment, it seems Pokémon names in every language not listed are spelled exactly the same as the English names. Although this confused me at first; perhaps it should be noted on this page that Pokémon in all other languages use the English names (with kinda funny pronunciation). CharonM72 04:25, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon by Inspiration

I few months ago, I saw a list of Pokémon sorted by real-life inspiration (e.g. dogs, parrots, cacti), but have not been able to find it since. I am not sure that it even was on this site, or possibly even, now that I think about it, real (I have very convincing dreams sometimes, but I don't think this was one of them). Does anyone know of this, or am I just making it up? Either way, I think it would be a nice addition to the site. Goldenpoke111 05:27, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

It was around, we decided it was a bad idea because people could disagree. TTEchidna 06:56, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
So I did see it here. Taking it off makes sense, though. Don't need edit wars on a page like that. However, if there is any way to get around arguments (maybe put some Pokémon in multiple "Disputed" subcategories, or place them by majority vote), I still think it would be nice to have. Goldenpoke111 17:06, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Seek and thou shalt find. —darklordtrom 07:22, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! I'm not entirely sure how my searches (through Google, even!) missed that page, but it is exactly what I was looking for. Goldenpoke111 18:02, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon by Rarity

I've often tried to compile lists of Pokemon that can only be caught a finite number of times in-game, or that require story events, and it occured to me that a List of Pokemon by Rarity would be a very useful thing. The List of Pokemon by In-game availability is close to what I am proposing, but it counts Snorlax as the same as caterpie, since they are both catchable. --Not nathan 22:10, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

You may want to take a look at List of in-game event Pokémon in Generation IV (we only have a GenIV page atm) and List of Pokémon by catch rate. They might be what you're looking for. —darklordtrom 21:47, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon by ability?

It would be incredibly helpful if there was a page that had a table with all the Pokémon on it, with the abilities they could use listed after, kind of like the "pokemon by base stats" table, only with abilities instead of stats. Would that be possible? Talonos 21:52, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Well, of course it's possible. But it wouldn't be very useful. The abilities have their own page with lists of Pokemon that can have it on it. There's really no need for a comprehensive list.--Gou 15:31, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
I was looking for the very same list, but can't find a single one. I think it'd be helpful to have this. Skandranonsg 20:00, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

List of Pokémon by Field Move (Ranger Series)

What about a list of the Pokémon by their Field Move, starting with the Pokémon with level 1 of their field move, and moving up. Each field move would have a different sub-section with a table of the Pokémon underneath. If two Pokémon have the same field move at the same level, we could put them in order of the National Pokédex. I have all three Ranger games, and I have completed two of them, so I could get started on it to save you the bother if nessecary.----Chalkwriter 19:51, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea to me. Then again, I'm not necessarily the one to go to for how realistic/reasonable an idea is. But you have my vote for it, if it comes to that. Azurill2 (talk) 05:12, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Pokémon by evolution stage

How hard would it be to create a list of pokémon sorted by their evolutionary stage, or separate lists of fully evolved,unevolved, and in between pokémon? Darth Zekrom 19:22, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon with unique base stat totals

Can anyone add List of Pokémon with unique base stat totals or can I do it myself? Cinday123 (talk) 00:31, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

The page 'List of Pokémon by index number (Generation VI)'

Since the page doesn't exist, will anyone create that page? Cinday123 (Talk) 07:38, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

List of Pokémon that changes type when evolving

... or "List of Pokémon families with changing type" or something like that. A list that show all families, similar to List of Pokémon by evolution family, but exclude families that retains types across all evolutions. Of course, this new list should also show types for each Pokémon. I think such a list could be beneficial. I'd try adding it myself, but I'm afraid I still lack experience with how the wiki works. ShadowCrush (talk) 15:13, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Regional Dex overview

Have anyone seen the List of Pokémon on Wikipedia? It's pretty helpful, showing every species as well as their different regional Dex numbers, as well as their national Dex number. Of course, it's not very pretty, how about we add one here (I don't know what it should be called though)? List of Pokémon by availability doesn't show numbers (and as such isn't sortable either), and it's pretty crowded. IN ADDITION, we could have a column showing a total for how often a species appears. We already have List of Pokémon that appear in every regional Pokédex and List of Pokémon that do not appear in any regional Pokédex, but this new list could do the same, as well for every thing in between. ShadowCrush (talk) 15:28, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Generation VI

There is a redlink on Generation VI for "by index number". If this is not yet created, can it be removed from the template? CycloneGU (talk) 23:23, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

I've mainspaced my page that was in the works on the topic. --Abcboy (talk) 23:36, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
Very well, didn't know it was there. I notice that 722-724 were not converted to the hex format, however. Shouldn't they be? CycloneGU (talk) 23:43, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
The template doesn't work that well with those entries, as they're not Pokémon. --Abcboy (talk) 23:48, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
How about adding the rows manually, then? I'd imagine that should resolve the problem. CycloneGU (talk) 23:50, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Can someone remove "in no regional Pokédex"?

List of Pokémon in no regional Pokédex is empty now, as every Pokémon is in a regional dex listing as of Legends: Arceus. KᴀᴜʟɪNᴇᴡTᴀʟᴋ⸟ 04:51, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Since the Paradox Pokémon (aside from Koraidon and Miraidon) have different names in Spanish and Italian due to their unusual names shouldn’t there now be articles for Spanish and Italian Pokémon names as there is now 15 Pokémon (With Type Null also being one of them) with different names in Spanish and Italian

I thought I would ask this for the reasons that are mentioned in the title and well I though I would ask this here as well since nobody is responding in the Paradox Pokémon discussion page so perhaps someone should do that that eventually as I feel that 15 Pokémon with different names in Spanish and Italian is enough to justify creating those articles. ~~TurtwigFan4848~~ - unsigned comment from Turtwig Fan4848 (talkcontribs)
