The international logo for the Pokémon franchise

The second generation (generation II) of the Pokémon franchise features 100 fictional species of creatures introduced to the core video game series in the 1999 Game Boy Color games Pokémon Gold and Silver, set in the Johto region. Some Pokémon in this generation were introduced in animated adaptations of the franchise before Gold and Silver, such as Ho-Oh in the first episode of the Pokémon anime series in 1998 and 1999, Togepi, which was a recurring character in the anime owned by Misty, Donphan in the Pokémon first movie in 1998, Snubbull in the first Pikachu short movie in 1998, and Marill, which also debuted in that short film and was a recurring character in the anime owned by Tracey Sketchit in 1998 and 1999. Elekid, Bellossom, Ledyba, and Hoothoot debuted in Pikachu's Rescue Adventure, and Lugia and Slowking debuted in Pokémon 2000.

The following list details the 100 Pokémon of generation II in order of their National Pokédex number. The first Pokémon, Chikorita, is number 152 and the last, Celebi, is number 251. Alternate forms that result in type changes are included for convenience. Mega evolutions and regional forms are included on the pages for the generation in which they were introduced.

Design and development


Pokémon are fictional species created for the Pokémon franchise. Developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo, the series began in Japan in 1996 with the release of the video games Pokémon Red and Blue for the Game Boy.[1] In these games, the player assumes the role of a Pokémon Trainer whose goal is to capture and train creatures called Pokémon. Players use the creatures' special abilities to combat other Pokémon, and some can transform into stronger species through a process called evolution.[2] Pokémon also have various types, which are elemental attributes that determine a Pokémon's strengths and weaknesses in combat.[3]

Two new types were introduced in Pokémon Gold and Silver – namely the "Dark" and "Steel" types – intended to better balance the gameplay of Pokémon battles. Dark and Steel types fare well against the then dominant Psychic type. The concept of breeding was introduced in the second generation of Pokémon games as well, which allows players to manipulate the skills of their Pokémon to a greater degree.[4] Some of the new Pokémon introduced in Gold and Silver are pre-evolutions of other Pokémon, such as Pichu and Igglybuff. Referred to as "baby Pokémon", they are usually only available by breeding their evolved forms.

Pokémon Gold and Silver were first revealed at Nintendo Space World in 1997. At this point, the game had a massively larger world map than the final game and this prototype featured around 40 Pokémon designs that were removed and replaced when the games were released in 1999.[5]

List of Pokémon

List of Pokémon species introduced in generation II (1999)[nb 1]
Name[nb 2] Type(s) Evolves from Evolves into Notes
Chikorita (チコリータ)[† 1]
  Grass Bayleef (#153) One of the Johto starter Pokémon, Chikorita is a somewhat amorphous Pokémon with a large leaf.[‡ 1] While Pokémon players tended to gravitate towards the other two starter options, all three are well-liked by the community.[7] At its debut, its line features some of the few pure Grass-type Pokémon, rather than being combined with the Poison typing as was common in generation I.[8]
Bayleef (ベイリーフ)[† 2]
  Grass Chikorita (#152) Meganium (#154) While Chikorita and Meganium's designs were settled in 1997, Bayleef originally had a significantly different design, resembling a flower blossom.[9] Bayleef is much larger than Chikorita, and according to its description releases stimulating smells.[‡ 2] It learns the attack "Body Slam", and the Bayleef belonging to Ash Ketchum in the Pokémon anime series is frequently shown to use it.[10]
Meganium (メガニウム)[† 3]
  Grass Bayleef (#153) Meganium is described as having refreshing or reviving properties.[‡ 3] It features as a glowing boss-equivalent in New Pokémon Snap.[11]
Hinoarashi (ヒノアラシ)[† 4]
  Fire Quilava (#156) Cyndaquil is a small hunched-over creature that shoots flames out of its back.[‡ 4] Besides being one of the starter Pokémon of the Johto region,[7] it is also featured as a starter Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.[12][13]
Magumarashi (マグマラシ)[† 5]
  Fire Cyndaquil (#155) Typhlosion (#157) Cyndaquil typically evolves into Quilava at level 14, but it does not evolve until level 17 in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.[14]
Bakufūn (バクフーン)[† 6]
  Fire Quilava (#156) Typhlosion is described as remarkably hot, its fur causing explosions around it.[‡ 5] Typhlosion's evolutionary line was unavailable in Pokémon Sword and Shield, but the next game Pokémon Legends: Arceus introduced its Hisuian form.[15] Typhlosion was only briefly made available in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet in 2023.[16]
Waninoko (ワニノコ)[† 7]
  Water Croconaw (#159) A playful but reckless species, it will bite anything it sees without warning, from foes to food to its own Trainer.
Arigeitsu (アリゲイツ)[† 5]
  Water Totodile (#158) Feraligatr (#160) Its teeth are slanted, similarly to a barbed fish hook, making them hard to remove. Croconaw itself will also not let go from something it bites unless it loses its teeth, at which point they grow back quickly.
Ōdairu (オーダイル)[† 3]
  Water Croconaw (#159) It shakes its head when it bites its opponents to tear its prey up. Since it cannot properly maintain its weight out of water, it usually walks on all fours, but can still run quickly on its hind legs.
Otachi (オタチ)[† 8]
  Normal Furret (#162) While one Sentret sleeps, another will stand on its tail and scout the area. If it senses danger, it screeches and thumps its tail on the ground to warn the rest of the pack.
Ōtachi (オオタチ)[† 9]
  Normal Sentret (#161) Furret is known for slipping through small spaces due to its thin body. It does this to escape from predators or hunt Pokémon like Rattata. It is hard to tell where its body ends and its tail begins.
Hōhō (ホーホー)[† 9]
  Normal / Flying Noctowl (#164) An owl-like Pokémon, Hoothoot is described as having an extremely accurate internal clock.[‡ 6] IGN described Hoothoot as "pretty much the Pidgey for people who are sick of Pidgey," noting that it introduced players of Gold, Silver, and Crystal to the games' day-night cycle mechanics.[17]
Yorunozuku (ヨルノズク)[† 9]
  Normal / Flying Hoothoot (#163) It has night vision, and its soft feathers allow it to fly without making a sound. When it needs to think, it turns its head 180º to raise its intellect.
Ledyba (レディバ)[† 9]
  Bug / Flying Ledian (#166) It communicates with other Ledyba by secreting fluids where its legs meet its body. It changes its scent based on how it is feeling. Ledyba are naturally timid creatures that panic when separated from their swarm.
Ledian (レディアン)[† 9]
  Bug / Flying Ledyba (#165) A nocturnal species, groups of Ledian gather around clear night skies and gather starlight to use as energy. While flying, it scatters a glowing powder thought to bring good luck. To make up for its physical weakness, it tries to overwhelm its opponents by punching with its four arms.
Itomaru (イトマル)[† 9]
  Bug / Poison Ariados (#168) Its webs are strong enough to withstand rocks being thrown at them, so fishermen use them as nets. It can wait for days for prey like Cutiefly to be caught. Its poison is not strong, but can be used to weaken prey. It can determine what it has caught by feeling the vibrations on its web.
Ariados (アリアドス)[† 9]
  Bug / Poison Spinarak (#167) It prefers to wander around to hunt, instead of setting a web and waiting. While doing so, it constantly spins a thread that leads it back home. It sneaks up on its prey, wraps them in thread, weakens them with poison, and sucks out their bodily fluids. It may sometimes release their prey, but leave a thread on them, which leads it to the their nest or friends. It can spin thread from its abdomen and mouth, making it hard to tell which end is which.
Crobat (クロバット)[† 10]
  Poison / Flying Golbat (#042) Two more wings grew where its hind legs used to be. It can fly with all four wings, or alternate between them. It can fly silently up to its prey and suck its blood.
Chonchī (チョンチー)[† 9]
  Water / Electric Lanturn (#171) Chinchou and Lanturn are based on the footballfish.[18] Chinchou combines its positive and negative currents to attack prey. It also communicates to others by flashing its lights at them.
Lanturn (ランターン)[† 9]
  Water / Electric Chinchou (#170) It lures prey with its light, flashes it to blind them, and swallows them whole. Its light can be seen from a depth of over 3 miles (5 kilometers). It competes with Lumineon to eat Starmie; Frillish and Sharpedo compete to eat Lanturn.
Pichu (ピチュー)[† 11]
  Electric Pikachu (#025) Pichu is a small mouse-like Pokémon that accidentally electrically shocks those around it.[‡ 7] Junichi Masuda said that Pichu was intended to become the "next" Pikachu, a mascot character. Pichu became Masuda's favorite Pokémon because of the "well thought-out" process that went into its design. It is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.[19][20][21]
(ピィ)[† 10]
  Fairy[nb 3] Clefairy (#035) It lives near mountainous regions and meteor crash sites. During nights with shooting stars, colonies of Cleffa can be seen dancing until the morning, at which point they drink morning dew and disappear. It is fascinated with things shaped like or related to stars, such as Minior.
Pupurin (ププリン)[† 12]
  Normal / Fairy[nb 3] Jigglypuff (#039) Its vocal cords are not fully developed yet, so its throat becomes sore after prolonged periods of singing. Despite this, it wants to improve, so it constantly sings. It lives near freshwater streams, and gargles their water to heal its throat. It bounces around to move, though it struggles with stopping.
Togepi (トゲピー)[† 13]
  Fairy[nb 3] Togetic (#176) It can store positive feelings in its shell and release them when needed. It withdraws into its shell to sleep, and can release poison from its spikes.
Togechikku (トゲチック)[† 14]
  Fairy[nb 3] / Flying Togepi (#175) Togekiss (#468) It does not need its wings to fly. It seeks kind people and Pokémon, and showers them with a happiness-infused down known as "joy dust".
Neiti (ネイティ)[† 9]
  Psychic / Flying Xatu (#178) Its wings are underdeveloped, so it cannot fly. It stares at potential predators, and hops away when they move. It forages for food like cactus fruit and tree shoots.
Neitio (ネイティオ)[† 9]
  Psychic / Flying Natu (#177) It stares at the sun all day. In South America, it is said that its left eye can see the past and its right eye can see the future, and that it does not move out of fear of what it sees.
Merīpu (メリープ)[† 15]
  Electric Flaaffy (#180) Its wool grows continuously and rubs together to build a static charge. It increases in volume the more energy it has stored. The wool is shed during summer, can be used to make clothing, and grows back in a week.
Mokoko (モココ)[† 9]
  Electric Mareep (#179) Ampharos (#181) Storing too much electricity has caused it to lose most of its wool, but it can store more energy than Mareep's wool, and it can fire it at opponents. Its rubbery skin protects it from its own energy, and the tip of its tail glows when it has fully charged.
Denryū (デンリュウ)[† 16]
  Electric Flaaffy (#180) Mega Evolution It has lost all of its wool. The orb in the tip of its tail can generate light bright enough to be seen from space, so it usually keeps it off. It has been used as a beacon and to send signals since ancient times. It gained a Mega Evolution in generation VI.
Kireihana (キレイハナ)[† 12]
  Grass Gloom (#044) Rubbing the petals on its head together releases a sweet aroma and makes relaxing sounds. Groups of Bellossom dance during cloudy or rainy days as a ritual to bring out the sun.
Marill (マリル)[† 17]
  Water / Fairy[nb 4] Azurill (#298) Azumarill (#184) Marill is a blue aquatic mouse that can float on water.[‡ 8] GameSpot's Frank Provo and Kotaku's Patricia Hernandez both described Marill as "cute".[22][23] Because Marill was first revealed in a 1998 anime short – two years before the release of Pokémon Gold and Silver – rumors surrounding its nature spread rapidly through children's communities and the young internet. Fan theories circulated that a Pokémon dubbed "Pikablu" was hidden in Pokémon Red and Blue, but such theories were disproven when the new games were released.[24][25]
Mariruri (マリルリ)[† 10]
  Water / Fairy[nb 4] Marill (#183) Its hearing is acute, allowing it to listen for potential prey underwater. It makes air bubbles to protect Azurill or help drowning Pokémon.
Usokkī (ウソッキー)[† 14]
  Rock Bonsly (#438) It poses as a tree to avoid being attacked. Since its forelegs remain green all year round, its disguise does not work during winter. It dislikes water, so it will run away during rainy days or when watered. It is a recurring obstacle in the Johto games and in the Hoenn Battle Frontier.
Nyorotono (ニョロトノ)[† 9]
  Water Poliwhirl (#061) It can expand its throat to sing. It acts as a leader to Poliwag and Poliwhirl. Politoed with longer and curlier hair are more respected among their peers.
Hanekko (ハネッコ)[† 14]
  Grass / Flying Skiploom (#188) It likes to drift through the wind. If it knows a big wind will pass, it will link its leaves with other Hoppip and prepare to not be blown away.
Popokko (ポポッコ)[† 9]
  Grass / Flying Hoppip (#187) Jumpluff (#189) The flower on top of its head fluctuates with the temperature, blooming when it's over 64 °F (18 °C), and closing during cold days. It will actively close its flower and hide away during rainy days.
Watakko (ワタッコ)[† 9]
  Grass / Flying Skiploom (#188) It can stand harsher winds than its pre-evolutions. It flies around to spread its spores. Breathing them may cause coughs and itchiness. Once it runs out of spores to spread, it dies.
Eipam (エイパム)[† 6]
  Normal Ambipom (#424) Its tail acts as a hand, letting it anchor to branches or hold itself up. Its hands have become less dexterous from being underused. It eats fruit and preys on Bounsweet. The Field Museum noted the resemblance to the Ahuizotl from Aztec mythology, describing it as "cute and friendly, not a killer."[26]
Himanattsu (ヒマナッツ)[† 9]
  Grass Sunflora (#192) It consumes morning dew, and moves as little as possible to conserve nutrients. Sunkern formerly had the lowest base stat total of any Pokémon at 180, until the introduction of Wishiwashi's solo form in generation VII with a base stat total of 175.[27]
Kimawari (キマワリ)[† 18]
  Grass Sunkern (#191) It is active and photosynthesizes during the day, but closes its petals and stops moving when the sun sets.
Yanyanma (ヤンヤンマ)[† 9]
  Bug / Flying Yanmega (#469) It can see 360º around it without moving its eyes, and make sudden turns or stops when flying. It can make shock waves strong enough to blow a house away.
Wooper (ウパー)[† 12]
  Water / Ground Quagsire (#195)[nb 5] It lives in cold water, and occasionally leaves it to search for food. On land, it coats itself with a slimy, toxic film. It has a Poison/Ground-type Paldean form.
Nuō (ヌオー)[† 9]
  Water / Ground Wooper (#194) Due to its low intelligence, it does not feel pain when it is hurt. While swimming, it tends to bump its head on boulders and boats. It leaves its mouth open and waits for unknowing prey to get in. Because it generally stays immobile, it takes some time to get hungry.
Ēfi (エーフィ)[† 19]
  Psychic Eevee (#133) It bathes in sunlight to build its psychic power, so it struggles to fight at night. Its fur is sensitive, allowing it to sense movements in the air to predict the weather and its opponents' moves.
Blacky (ブラッキー)[† 19]
  Dark Eevee (#133) Constant exposure to moonlight has altered its genetic composition. Its rings glow when it is excited or bathing in moonlight. It hides in the dark while hunting, and jumps at unsuspecting prey's throats. It sprays poisonous sweat from the pores in its body to defend itself.
Yamikarasu (ヤミカラス)[† 9]
  Dark / Flying Honchkrow (#430) It is interested in shiny things, to the point of fighting with Pokémon like Meowth and Gabite over it. It may give them to Trainers it trusts. It leads chasing predators around dark mountains to lose them, and does the same to travelers as a prank. It is seen as an omen of bad luck, with sayings dedicated to keeping it away. Honchkrow have murders of at least 100 Murkrow at their call.
Yadoking (ヤドキング)[† 14]
  Water / Psychic Slowpoke (#079) If a Shellder latches onto a Slowpoke's head, it releases venom into its brain, causing a chemical chain reaction that gives it an intellect comparable to award-winning scientists. When Slowking yawns, the Shellder releases more venom, making it more intelligent. It stays calm at all times, planning around situations before acting, and seeking knowledge about the world. It has battles of wit with Oranguru, usually ending in draws. If the Shellder comes off of its head, it forgets everything and reverts to being a Slowpoke. It has a Poison/Psychic-type Galarian form.
Mūma (ムウマ)[† 10]
  Ghost Mismagius (#429) It feeds on people's fear, and stores it on the orbs around its neck. To that end, it may scream or cry, sneak up on them and yank their hair, or imitate the voices of weeping people and children. Its orbs emit constant shrieking sounds. A nocturnal species, it sleeps during daytime, and goes out to scare others at night. It is thought to be related to Flutter Mane.
Unown (アンノーン)[† 20]
  Psychic No evolution Unown has 28 different forms: 26 representing each letter in the Latin alphabet, one for a question mark, and one for an exclamation mark. It is said to resemble ancient hieroglyphs from ancient tablets. Historians question whether or not Unown precede them. Multiple Unown can work together to warp reality and travel to and from an alternate dimension that acts as their home. Unown have currently unclear connections with Arceus, appearing en masse when it uses its power. It is unknown if Unown use telepathy or electromagnetic waves to communicate with each other, but the presence of multiple Unown in an area interferes with radio signals.
Sōnansu (ソーナンス)[† 21]
  Psychic Wynaut (#360) It dislikes light and its tail being touched, so it lives in dark caves. In battle, it does not attack first, and instead inflates its body to counter blows. If its tail is attacked, it uses Destiny Bond to attempt to take the attacker down with it. If two Wobbuffet meet, they may try to see which one can go the longest without food.
Kirinriki (キリンリキ)[† 9]
  Normal / Psychic Farigiraf (#981) Its tail has a head and brain of its own, though it is incapable of rational thought, and instead moves based on stimuli. If the tail smells something alluring, it will bite it. It keeps watch of its surroundings while Girafarig is asleep, and can attack with psychic energy on its own. Its and its evolution Farigiraf's names are palindromes.
Kunugidama (クヌギダマ)[† 9]
  Bug Forretress (#205) It spits a glue-like fruit to stick tree bark to its shell in order to make it thicker. It hangs on a tree branch, waiting for prey such as Cutiefly. If the tree is shaken while it is eating, it falls down and explodes.
Foretosu (フォレトス)[† 9]
  Bug / Steel Pineco (#204) It conceals its body in a steel-hard shell, which it opens to capture prey, and can shoot pieces of to defend itself. Because it opens and closes its shell faster than the eye can see, its appearance under the shell is unknown.
Nokotchi (ノコッチ)[† 9]
  Normal Dudunsparce (#982) Its design inspired by the mythical Japanese creature Tsuchinoko.[28] Its tiny wings allow it to float slightly. Scientists believe it used them to fly in the sky. It hides or flees from potential predators by drilling holes into the ground with its tail. It gets along with Diglett, and the two species share tunnels with each other.
Gligar (グライガー)[† 19]
  Ground / Flying Gliscor (#472) It glides silently through the air, latches on the enemy's face with its hind legs and wings, and jabs them with its poisonous stinger. After gliding, it hops back to its nest. It lives in mountainous areas.
Haganēru (ハガネール)[† 3]
  Steel / Ground Onix (#095) Mega Evolution The Pokédex states that, under immense pressure underground, an Onix has its rock-like body compressed into diamonds to evolve into Steelix. Physicists of the University of Leicester calculated the plausibility of such a metasomatic process: It would require pressures of 4.5–6 gigapascals at a temperature of 900 to 1,300 °C (1,650 to 2,370 °F) over a period of billions of years for this conversion to take place. Assuming these conditions, the resulting Steelix would also be substantially smaller than given in the Pokédex entry.[29] Steelix is described as living further down than Onix, toward the earth's core, and reaching significant size. A Mega Evolution was created for it in generation VI.
Burū (ブルー)[† 9]
  Fairy[nb 3] Granbull (#210) It sleeps for half of the day, and has an acute sense of smell. Despite its appearance, it is affectionate, playful, and timid. It tries to scare enemies away, as opposed to fighting them. It is popular with women who find it cute.
Granbull (グランブル)[† 9]
  Fairy[nb 3] Snubbull (#209) Its jaws are heavy, so it struggles to keep balance. Despite its appearance and strength, it is more affectionate and timid than Snubbull, and prefers to stay out of fights. It will only attack if startled, at which point it will bite or flail at potential enemies. It is popular with children.
Harīsen (ハリーセン)[† 9]
  Water / Poison No evolution[nb 6] In order to fire its poisonous spikes that evolved from scales, it must drink at least 2.6 gallons of water all at once. It can fire those spikes in all directions by pressurizing the water in its body. Due to its body shape and single fin, it struggles with swimming. Fishermen try to catch it after it fires its spikes and becomes defenseless. It is based on porcupine fish.[18] It has a Dark/Poison-type Hisuian form.
Hassamu (ハッサム)[† 12]
  Bug / Steel Scyther (#123) Mega Evolution It uses its eye-patterned pincers to scare foes into thinking it has 3 heads. Its pincers account for a third of its body weight, and are said to be able to crush anything. It has a body of steel and is not fazed by regular attacks. It does not use its wings to fly, but to regulate its body temperature so it does not melt in battle. It gained a Mega Evolution in generation VI.
Tsubotsubo (ツボツボ)[† 9]
  Bug / Rock No evolution To avoid attacks, Shuckle quietly hides itself under rocks, keeping its body concealed inside its hard shell. It stores berries in its shell, which decompose with its digestive fluids and become a gooey liquid, which it then consumes. It also secretes that fluid from its toes, and uses it to carve holes in rocks. It can be mixed with berries to make juice. It has the highest base defense and special defense stats of all obtainable Pokémon, though they are lower than those of Eternamax Eternatus.
Heracross (ヘラクロス)[† 5]
  Bug / Fighting Mega Evolution When it needs to move anything in its way, it uses its large horn to launch the object through the air. Heracross can throw something over 100 times its weight. It digs its claws into the ground for sturdy footing when lifting objects, or on trees to climb them. It competes with Pinsir for food, though they are friendlier with each other in Alola. It gained a Mega Evolution in generation VI.
Nyūra (ニューラ)[† 9]
  Dark / Ice Weavile (#461) Its design is inspired by the mythical Japanese creature Kamaitachi.[28] It climbs trees with its claws to steal bird Pokémon's eggs from unguarded nests. Two Sneasel may team up with others to steal eggs, with one luring the parents away and the other taking the eggs, but fights will usually break out over which one will eat them. It has a Fighting/Poison-type Hisuian form.
Himeguma (ヒメグマ)[† 12]
  Normal Ursaring (#217) Its paws are constantly soaked and honey, and it is constantly licking them. It can make honey by mixing pollen collected by Beedrill with berries, or steal it from Combee hives. When it finds honey, the mark on its head glows. When nervous, it licks its paws. Every set of paws is said to taste different.
Ringuma (リングマ)[† 5]
  Normal Teddiursa (#216) Ursaluna (#901) While it is skilled at climbing, it prefers snapping trees with its forelegs and collecting their fallen berries to eat. It marks trees bearing particularly good fruit with its claws. It has an acute sense of smell, allowing it to find food underground or in streams. Its favorite food is honey. It competes with Primeape for food.
Magumaggu (マグマッグ)[† 9]
  Fire Magcargo (#219) Its circulatory system is composed almost entirely of magma. To prevent it from cooling off and turning brittle, it seeks warmer places like volcanoes to live in, and never stops moving.
Magcargo (マグカルゴ)[† 9]
  Fire / Rock Slugma (#218) Its body temperature is approximately 18,000 °F (10,000 °C). Its shell is made of cooled magma, though it is brittle enough to break from a touch. It can dip itself in lava to recover. This description would imply Magcargo is hotter than the surface of the sun.[30]
Urimū (ウリムー)[† 9]
  Ice / Ground Piloswine (#221) It uses its nose to dig through snow to find food. Its favorite food is a type of mushroom that grows under dead grass. If it smells something enticing, it will rush to the source of the smell. It may discover hot springs while digging.
Inomū (イノムー)[† 9]
  Ice / Ground Swinub (#220) Mamoswine (#473) Its thick fur allows it to live in cold environments. Its tusks are made of ice, and it uses them to dig through ice and snow. Its hooves prevent it from slipping on ice. Tufts of fur cover its eyes, so it uses its nose to check its surroundings.
Sanīgo (サニーゴ)[† 9]
  Water / Rock No evolution[nb 7] Its branches are used by Pokémon like Horsea and Luvdisc as shelter, or by humans as jewelry and charms to promote safe childbirth. If the water it lives in is not clean, its branches lose color and degenerate. Mareanie and Toxapex are its main predators in Alola. It has a Ghost-type Galarian form.
Teppouo (テッポウオ)[† 9]
  Water Octillery (#224) It is based on the remora.[18] It may use its dorsal fin as a sucker to stick a Mantine and feed on the scraps it leaves, though it may also fight along. It can spit water up to 300 feet (91 meters) away as an attack, to knock prey like Burmy out of the air.
Okutan (オクタン)[† 9]
  Water Remoraid (#223) It grabs its foes and bashes their heads in with its skull, which is as hard as stone. If the foe is too strong, it sprays ink from its mouth to escape. This ink has a substance that dulls opponents' sense of smell. It may steal the nests of other Octillery to sleep. Due to the anatomical differences between it and Remoraid, people initially thought them to be unrelated species.
Delibird (デリバード)[† 22]
  Ice / Flying No evolution Its tail functions as a sack, in which it carries food to share with its chicks or people and Pokémon lost in the mountains. One explorer has reached the peak of Mount Everest thanks to a Delibird sharing its food. An omnivorous species, it may sometimes offer people bug Pokémon to eat. It throws food at its opponents to defend itself. It is thought to be related to Iron Bundle.
Mantine (マンタイン)[† 23]
  Water / Flying Mantyke (#458) It is based on the giant oceanic manta ray.[18] A carefree species, it does not mind Remoraid sticking to its fins. It lives in schools in open seas, and can jump out of the water and fly up to 300 feet (91 m) in the air given enough room and speed.
Eāmudo (エアームド)[† 6]
  Steel / Flying No evolution It sets its nests in bramble bushes, and the skin of its chicks grows into a metallic material from being scratched. Its feathers are regularly shed or fall off from being damaged in battle, but grow back in a year. In the past, people crafted swords from them. It competes with Corviknight for territory.
Derubiru (デルビル)[† 14]
  Dark / Fire Houndoom (#229) Houndour form coordinated packs, and communicate with barks and howls. Trained Houndour are loyal to their Trainers.
Herugā (ヘルガー)[† 5]
  Dark / Fire Houndour (#228) Mega Evolution Its fire is mixed with a toxin generated in its gut, which causes burning wounds it inflicts to never heal. It forms packs of other Houndoom, with the leader being determined by fights among the pack. They share their food evenly. In the past, people thought its howls were calls from the grim reaper. It gained a Mega Evolution in generation VI.
Kingdra (キングドラ)[† 9]
  Water / Dragon Seadra (#117) It is based on the common seadragon.[18] Its yawns can create undercurrents strong enough to sink small ships, and it can create whirlpools. To save up energy, it sleeps in the caves of otherwise uninhabited seafloors. It is known to constantly fight Dragonite.
Gomazō (ゴマゾウ)[† 12]
  Ground Donphan (#232) Its trunk can break people's bones and send them flying, and it can carry a human on its back. Phanpy dig vertical nests near rivers, and spray each other with water to clean themselves.
Donphan (ドンファン)[† 21]
  Ground Phanpy (#231) It can curl up into a ball, and roll with enough strength to knock a house down. While its hide is hard enough to withstand most attacks, it is highly sensitive to rain. It is thought to be related to Great Tusk and Iron Treads.

Miltank (ミルタンク)[† 22]
  Normal No evolution It produces over five gallons of milk per day. While its milk is sweet and nutritious, drinking too much can cause people to gain weight and suffer from stomachaches. The taste and nutritional value of its milk depends on the quality of the pastures it lives in, the season, and whether or not it is around infants.
Hapinasu (ハピナス)[† 3]

Ho-Oh resurrected it after it perished as a helpless unknown Pokémon in a burning tower. It is thought to be related to Raging Bolt.

Ho-Oh resurrected it after it perished as a helpless unknown Pokémon in a burning tower. Entei has a lead role in Pokémon 3: The Movie (2001). It is thought to be related to Gouging Fire.

Lugia (ルギア)[† 3]
  Psychic / Flying No evolution It causes 40-day storms by flapping its wings, so it remains asleep in the sea to avoid causing damage, though it also has the ability to calm storms. It is the leader of the Legendary Bird trio and the mascot for Pokémon Silver and SoulSilver. It debuted in the second movie, where it spoke and was one of the heroes. Lugia was originally conceived by Takeshi Shudo, the head writer of the first Pokémon anime. Lugia had been designed solely for Pokémon:The Movie 2000, and Shudo expressed surprise that the creature was later featured in the video games and TV show.[32] Lugia, who possessed a speaking role in the film, was given a masculine voice. However, Shudo intended Lugia as a creature that was simultaneously male and female. This dual nature was intended to embody one of the film's main messages, that people can be different and yet coexist without resorting to conflict. He showed "overwhelming regret that he allowed Lugia to be voiced by a man", considering Lugia, the "creator of all life on Earth", to be a "maternal Pokémon". Stating that "it was too late, we couldn't suddenly change Lugia into a female", the change was so significant to him that it made him start "gulping down alcohol and drugs" and "feel like [he] wanted to die". During the final few years of his life, Shudo became "obsessed" with Lugia, writing numerous blog posts on the subject.[32][unreliable source?]
Ho-Oh (ホウオウ)[† 3]
  Fire / Flying No evolution Similar to Moltres, Ho-Oh's design is inspired by the Fenghuang (firebird) of Chinese myth.[28] It resurrected the Legendary Beast trio after they burned to death in the Brass tower as unknown Pokémon. Its feathers glow in the colors of the rainbow, and it is said to leave a rainbow trail when flying. It is said that seeing it is an omen of eternal happiness. It is the mascot for Pokémon Gold and HeartGold.
Celebi (セレビィ)[† 25]
  Psychic / Grass No evolution Celebi has the power to travel through time. It is said that the land flourishes wherever it has been, and it brings back an egg from the future before leaving. It was one of the heroes in Pokémon 4Ever. It has been regarded as one of the best Pokémon by multiple websites, including The Escapist, IGN, GamesRadar+, and authors Tracey West and Katherine Noll.[33][34][35][36] Variety editor Robert Koehler identified Celebi as a Pokémon that appeals to young girls.[37]
