Oh shoot, I just realized that we now actually have a (usable) early-game Ice type for once, with Smoochum on Melemele. :eek:

I'm confused. Where did we find out the total amount of Pokemon? I thought we only knew it was to be "over 400"?
We know because of this image:


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:

387. Cosmog
388. Cosmoem
389. Solgaleo
390. Lunala
391. Nihilego
392. Buzzwole
393. Pheromosa
394. Xurkitree
395. Celesteela
396. Kartana
397. Guzzlord
398. Burst
399. Assembly
400. Necrozma
401. Magearna
402. Marshadow

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.

Thank you so much for clearing that up :)

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?
