All around me are familiar faces

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have a ton of new Pokémon discover, from the lovable Klawf to the impeccably designed Clodsire — but plenty of familiar faces also return from previous generations of Pokémon, with iconic inclusions such as Charizard, Pikachu, and the ever-useful Ditto. Some returning Pokémon even have new evolutions! Below is a list of all Pokémon from Generations 1 – 7 that feature in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Every Previous Generation Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Every Generation 1 – 7 Pokémon found in the list below feature in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, however, not all of them are available to catch. Some Pokémon, such as starters and legendaries from previous generations, will be completely unavailable until Pokémon Home support releases in 2023, in which Pokémon caught in other titles can be transferred into Scarlet or Violet. Although some currently unavailable species will be introduced in the form of events, like Tera Raid Charizard.

Pokémon that gained new evolutions in Pokémon Legends: Arceus sadly cannot evolve in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and instead have to be transferred from Pokémon Home.
