Pokemon Scarlet & Violet has a large number of Pokemon for you to catch, so we’ve put together a handy little guide showing you just how many of the National Pokedex the game uses, including brand-new species.

The National Pokedex now exceeds 1,000 thanks to new inclusions in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet and really shows the enormous legacy that Pokemon has built up over the years.

How many Pokemon are in the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Pokedex?

If you’re looking to completely fill out your Pokedex in Pokemon Scarlet & Volet, then buckle up as you’ll have to catch, evolve, and trade a grand total of 400 Pokemon!

This is significantly more than Legends Arceus which only required you to catch 242, and if you are able to successfully do so, you’ll earn a Shiny Charm for your efforts.

Game Freak have confirmed that each new entry in the game will only feature a certain amount of Pokemon from the National Pokedex, so it’s likely we’ll never have a full game that will feature all 1,000+ Pokemon in it.
