Pokémon Go Gen 9 Pokémon list released so far, every creature from Scarlet and Violet’s Paldea region listed

Everything you need to know about Gen 9 in Pokémon Go.

Gen 9 consists of 110 Pokémon who will be gradually released in Pokémon Go.

Unlike previous generations - Gen 1, Gen 2, Gen 3, Gen 4, Gen 5, Gen 6, Gen 7 and Gen 8 - the first Gen 9 Pokémon to appear in Pokémon Go, Roaming Form Gimmighoul, wasn’t actually catchable playable during its first appearance in the game. Instead, players had to wait roughly three months to add it to their collection.

Gen 9 arrived in the Pokémon universe alongside the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet for the Nintendo Switch. Its ranks then increased as part of the Pokémon Day celebrations in 2023 and we can also expect to see more new Gen 9 Pokémon in the Scarlet and Violet DLC - The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero.

This generation also includes a variety of original creatures, Paldean variants and reimagined versions of Pokémon from Gen 1.

Which Gen 9 Pokémon are in Pokémon Go so far

The Gen 9 Pokémon will, like previous generations such as Gen 7, be released into Pokémon Go in stages. Their arrival, however, was hinted at during November 2022 when Roaming Form Gimmighoul appeared on the in-game map after players spun special Golden PokéStops.

Gimmighoul and Gholdengo were the first Gen 9 Pokémon to be released into the Pokémon Go and it will be interesting to see which Pokémon follow them!

What we know about the Gen 9 Pokémon

Originating from the Paldea region, inspired by the Iberian Peninsula, Gen 9 originally introduced 103 Pokémon when Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were released in November 2022. This collection includes new legendary Pokémon, Paldean variants, the Paradox Pokémon, reimagined versions of Gen 1 Pokémon and, of course, three starter Pokémon.

These were not, however, the last Gen 9 Pokémon to be released and, on Pokémon Day 2023, the number of Gen 9 rose to 105 with the release of two new Paradox Pokémon - Walking Wake and Iron Leaves - as part of the version 1.2.0 update for Scarlet and Violet.

Five more Gen 9 Pokémon will be introduced in the The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC for Scarlet and Violet, bringing the total number of Gen 9 Pokémon to 110. These Pokémon are Ogerpon, Terapagos, Okidogi, Munkidori and Fezandipiti.

Below you’ll find nine interesting facts about what makes Gen 9 unique amongst the other Pokémon generations:

Scream Tail.
  • Gen 9 is the first generation to have Pokémon with the Bug / Dark, Grass / Fire and Electric / Fighting type combinations.
  • The Paradox Pokémon were first introduced in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and, as their name suggests, these Pokemon are out of place in the present-day Pokémon world. Each one resembles a Pokémon from a past generation, but are versions of them from either the distant past or far future. Paradox Pokémon from the past, like Roaring Moon and Scream Tail, appear exclusively in Scarlet, while the ones which hail from the future, like Iron Thorns or Iron Bundle, only appear in Violet.
  • Gen 9 is the first generation to not include a new set of Fossil Pokémon.
  • There are two Paldean regional variants - Paldean Tauros and Paldean Wooper. When it comes to Paldean Tauros, there are three breeds for you to collect - Aqua, Blaze and Combat.
  • Toadscool.
  • Gen 9 includes several reimagined versions of Gen 1 Pokémon, such as Wiglett and Toadscool. These Pokémon are not to be confused with Paldean Pokémon, because, even though they have different types and designs which harken back to those original creatures, they are considered whole new Pokémon in their own right.
  • Both Dudunsparce and Maushold can evolve into two different forms, with the exact one being decided randomly upon evolution.
  • There are no new baby Pokémon introduced in Gen 9.
  • Gen 9 introduced the Terastallizing mechanic into the Pokémon universe. In Scarlet and Violet, each Pokémon has a Tera type, which can be different from their main type, and, when Terastallized, this becomes their main type.
  • Varoom and Revavroom are both inspired by types of internal combustion engines. They have also dethroned Binacle as my most loathed Pokémon.

Pokémon Go Gen 9 Pokémon list

While the majority of the Gen 9 evolutions in Pokémon Go will, like previous generations such as Gen 8, require a specific amount of candy, Gen 9 has a number of special evolution methods.

Gholdengo.

We’ve already seen how one of these methods will be translated into Pokémon Go in the form of evolving Gimmighoul into Gholdengo. Here, like in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you need to collect 999 Gimmighoul Coins, but in a similar manner to encountering Meltan, the Roaming Form Gimmighoul who may grant you a coin will only appear for 30 minutes after you’ve used the Coin Bag.

At the time of writing, the only way to recharge the Coin Bag is to send a Postcard from Pokémon Go to Scarlet or Violet, which is achieved by connecting Pokémon Go to the Nintendo Switch.

Gimmighoul, however, isn’t the only Pokémon to have a unique evolution method in Gen 9 though.

Pokémon like Annihilape, Kingambit and Farigiraf all require a Pokémon to know a specific move for their evolution, while Cetitan and Bellibolt need specific evolution stones in the main series. Charcadet, meanwhile, will evolve into either Armarouge or Ceruledge depending on which type of armor you give it. Not to forget how Finizen will only evolve when you’re using a Union Circle to visit another player’s game!

Whether these Pokémon will gain unique evolution methods in Pokémon Go or if a new evolution stone, like the Sinnoh and Unova Stone, will be introduced is yet to be seen.

Annihilape and Farigiraf.

We can hazard a good guess at what the evolution method for Pawmot, Brambleghast and Rabsca will be in Pokémon Go since, in the main series, all three Pokémon evolve after you’ve walked 1000 steps with them in the Let’s Go mode. For this reason, we wouldn’t be surprised if they have a similar distance requirement in Pokémon Go.

It also wouldn’t be surprising if, like in the Scarlet and Violet, Greavard can only evolve into Houndstone at night in Pokémon Go.

Gen 9 also includes two Pokémon - Maushold and Dudunsparce - whose form will be randomly selected upon their evolution, so it will be interesting to see if this mechanic is kept in Pokémon Go.

It’s important to note that we have not listed the five Gen 9 Pokémon announced as part of the The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC for Scarlet and Violet. These Pokémon are Ogerpon, Terapagos, Okidogi, Munkidori and Fezandipiti.

This is because, at the time of writing, we neither know the typing or National Dex numbers for these Pokémon. They will, however, be added once we know this information.

Oherpon, Terapagos, Fezandipiti, Okidogi and Munkidori.

We have listed Walking Wake and Iron Leaves - the two Paradox Pokémon announced as part of the Pokémon Day 2023 celebrations - but have placed them at the bottom of the table since, at the time of writing, we don’t know their National Pokédex numbers.
