The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier.
Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.
If you look closely, you can see that Cosmog is listed as #387, and Marshadow as #402.
Another promo picture for the new Rotom Dex toy also listed Necrozma as #400:
There are just enough spaces between Lunala and Necrozma to accommodate the existing UBs + Burst and Assembly (with Adhesive probably appearing much earlier in the Pokédex, since the Recon Squad battle us with it at Paniola Ranch), so we can infer that the new Alola Dex caps off like this:
The only thing that I can think would come after Marshadow is a new Mythical Pokémon, so 402/403 is almost certainly where the new Alola Dex stops.
However, we know that more Pokémon than that are included in the game - we have the wormhole Legendaries, and the Pokémon from Island Scan. So strictly speaking, "more than 400 Pokémon" do appear in the game.
As every Pokemon is playable in the game (through trading from other games) I wonder why they can't make it so that every Pokemon is available to catch in the game? Whether it's for some logistical reason, or not of a commercial reason, such as having to purchase a selection of games to complete a full national dex
All pokemon (apart from event pokemon) were available across the Gen 6 games, but it looks like that won't be the case for Gen 7? Does anyone have a list of pokemons not available across the gen 7 games?
This team planner has been fully updated for USUM, includes the whole regional dex (and island by island) as well as Island Scan. View at your own risk if you're wanting to avoid knowing any of the newly available Pokemon and stuff.
