Pokémon Go Gen 4 Pokémon list released so far, and every creature from Diamond and Pearl's region listed

Every creature from Gen 4 that will one day be available in Pokémon Go.

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.

On this page:

Update (May 18th): There's been a big Gen 4 update with 16 new creatures, some of which require use of the new Glacial Lure, Mossy Lure and Magnetic Lure modules.

April 2019 rollout (3 total)

The end of April saw the arrival of Azelf, Uxie, Mesprit, who buck the trend as the first Legendaries to appear in the game as wild spawns. They are exceedingly rare, but the good news is in May, they are in Legendary Raids in different regions.

Meanwhile, it appeared that Shellos was also released at the same time, but then rolled back - so though some people have it, it's probably best to not be considered an official release.

So far, not all Pokémon from previous generations that have Gen 4 evolutions cannot be evolved just yet - see our page on the Sinnoh Stone for more on that!

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

New to the game is a long overdue Mega Evolution update, which has arrived alongside the A Mega Moment research. May 2022 in Pokémon Go includes the Water Festival, which celebrates the release of Dewpider and Araquanid. Tapu Fini has also been released alongside A Poni Adventure - the last Alola region-themed special research quest. Currently both the Ultra League and Element Cup are running in the Go Battle League. Elsewhere, we've recently seen the release of more Gen 7 Pokémon as part of the Season of Alola. The first details surrounding Go Fest 2022 have also been announced, including the event date.


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.
