Pokémon Go's Gen 4 will offer 107 new Pokémon, the second largest addition of new creatures to the game since its summer 2016 debut - topping the 80 or so added in Gen 2, and close to the numbers we've seen in Gen 3.

As the name suggests, Gen 4 Pokémon are from the franchise's fourth generation of games - Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum - and feature many evolutions of creatures from previous generations, as well as some new baby Pokémon and, as always, brand new Legendary creatures.

After months of teases and hints, Gen 4 has finally arrived - and like Gen 3, they will arrive in waves.

So far, creatures from previous generations that have Gen 4 evolutions cannot be evolved just yet.

Wondering what's missing? There's a complete list (with images and Types) of the 135 Pokémon from the Hoenn region in the main games, including their evolution methods, towards the end of the article.

There's also plenty of other things to know about Gen 4 too...

What you need to know about Pokémon from Gen 4

Gen 4 follows some of the same traits as previous generations. There are three Grass, Fire and Water starters - all with two evolutions each - and the standard array of common birds and bugs alongside a fleet of powerful Legendaries.

Pearl cover star Palkia

There are, however, a number of interesting statistics that set it apart from previous generations:

  • Whereas Gen 3 was comprised of mostly original creatures, Gen 4 features a large amount of evolutions from previous generations - a staggering 22 in total
  • There are six Baby Pokémon, which all evolve into Pokémon from previous generations
  • There's the welcome return of two new Eevee evolutions, the first new evolutions since Gen 2
  • Many Pokémon have a variety of forms - from Wormadam and its many cloaks, Shellos changing appearance based on where it was caught in the main games, and Rotum, which changes appearance based on possessing electrical appliances
  • There are nine Legendaries, and five Mythical Pokémon - both more than any previous generation to date

Coming soon is the addition of Pokémon Go PvP. Until then, a new month means the arrival of December Field Research and new Shinies. New Pokémon Go Gen 4 Pokémon continue to be slowly released, such as the addition of Legendary Cresselia and the introduction of the Sinnoh Stone, affecting various Best Pokémon lists.


Pokémon Go Gen 4 Pokémon list

As with the first three generations, most evolutions should require Candy, though we suspect new Special Items matching those used in the main game, or even other mechanics - such as Trading - for others might be required. We'll know for sure when they release.
