Here comes an interesting message related to one of the most beloved franchises among Nintendo fans. We’re talking about Pokémon again.
In the tweet below, we have confirmation that there are currently 900 different Pokémon confirmed. The information comes from Joe Merrick, webmaster of Serebii, who has calculated that, with the new Pokémon introduced for Pokémon Legends: Arceus, we have this round figure in total.
Here’s his message:
At present, we have exactly 900 known Pokémon— Joe Merrick (@JoeMerrick) August 18, 2021
He also clarified that this figure does not include regional forms: if they were included, we would have a total of 1277 Pokémon.
No, this is species of Pokémon. Regional forms are alternate forms of a species of Pokémon.— Joe Merrick (@JoeMerrick) August 18, 2021
If we counted forms, we'd be at 1277 right now
