Trainers hoping to see the entire Pokédex featured in the upcoming games Pokémon Scarlet and Violet might want to read on.
As highlighted by Serebii.net, it looks like players will only be able to add “specific” pocket monsters to these games via the Pokémon HOME app. This suggests “not all” Pokémon may be coded into the next Nintendo Switch entries.
While this news isn’t particularly surprising, it may upset some trainers who were hoping to be able to “catch ’em all” to complete the National Pokédex. This would follow in the footsteps of Pokémon Sword and Shield which excluded the complete National Dex.
There are now around 900 pocket monsters on record as of 2022, which means Game Freak is likely to cherry-pick certain ‘Mon more and more from here on out. Producer Junichi Masuda also previously mentioned how more Pokémon in games potentially presented issues when it came to battle balance.
How do you feel about not being able to catch ’em all? Leave a comment down below.
