There are now officially over 1,000 Pokémon
Gotta catch all 1,000+ of 'em!
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet have officially launched across all regions and with their release, the series has finally hit a massive milestone!
In total, Scarlet/Violet introduce a total number of 103 new Pokémon, which officially pushes the series past 1,000 total Pokémon. To break it down by the numbers, before Scarlet/Violet, the “last” Pokémon according to National Dex number was Enamorous (#905), and if we add the 103 from the new games that brings the grand total to 1,008 different Pokémon species across all of the games!
Of course, being that the games don’t currently include a National Dex, it’s tough to say which Pokémon earns the title of the official 1,000th Pokémon. Though if we had to guess, we’ll likely get the answer to this once Pokémon HOME compatibility launches for both games next year. We’ll be sure to keep you informed of updates as they come.
