List of Pokémon species introduced in Generation IV (2006)[nb 1]
Name[nb 2] Type(s) Evolves from Evolves into Notes
Naetoru (ナエトル)[2]
  Grass Grotle (#388) Its shell is made from hardened soil, and it hardens even more when it drinks water. On a very healthy Turtwig, its shell should feel slightly damp and warm to the touch. It uses photosynthesis across its whole body, making oxygen in the process. If it is thirsty, the leaves on its head start to wilt. It becomes more energetic the more sunlight there is.
Hayashigame (ハヤシガメ)[3]
  Grass Turtwig (#387) Torterra (#389) It lives along water in the forest and it sometimes leaves the forest to sunbathe. Its shell is hardened soil, though sometimes bird Pokémon like to live on its back and peck at the berries growing on it. The fruit that grows on the shrubs on its shell is sweet, nutritious, and truly delicious. They say each Grotle that lives in the forest has its own secret springwater since they know where pure water wells up at.
Dodaitosu (ドダイトス)[4]
  Grass / Ground Grotle (#388) It appears to be based on Ankylosaurus, but it is actually a turtle, and it is also based on the common myth of the World Turtle. Occasionally, small Pokémon gather in the tree on its back and spend their whole life there. Groups of migrating Torterra have been mistaken as moving forests. Ancient people believed that underneath the earth, a large Torterra dwelled. Some say it would serve beautifully as garden scenery and its strength is immense. It roams the wilderness in search of clean, fresh water to drink.
Hikozaru (ヒコザル)[5]
  Fire Monferno (#391) Chimchar has fire coming out of its rear-end.[6] It produces gas in its belly that creates the fire, even rain cannot put it out.
Mōkazaru (モウカザル)[7]
  Fire / Fighting Chimchar (#390) Infernape (#392) It uses all of its limbs to fight in fiery, flaming combos. Its fiery tail is also used as a weapon. The deeper the blue on its face, the stronger it'll be.
Gōkazaru (ゴウカザル)[8]
  Fire / Fighting Monferno (#391) Infernape is based on the Monkey King, Sun Wukong. Its martial arts are unmatched in terms of skill. Its a tall and very hardy Pokémon that shrouds itself in a flame as if it is dancing.
Potchama (ポッチャマ)[3]
  Water Prinplup (#394) It is a proud Pokémon, and because of this, it hates accepting food from people and it will not easily listen to its trainer, so bonding and caring for it will be really tough. It is a great swimmer, yet a poor walker, as it can dive for up to 10 minutes just to hunt but it also falls down on land a lot too. It lives in cold climates in Northern countries and its thick guard protects it from the cold. Piplup plays a prominent role in the anime as the Pokémon partner of Dawn.
Pottaishi (ポッタイシ)[8]
  Water Piplup (#393) Empoleon (#395) It tends to live alone, and because every one of them believes it is the most important, they can never form a group. Its wings are really strong, delivering wicked blows that can snap even the thickest of trees. It gracefully glides though the seas as it searches for prey in icy climates.
Enperuto (エンペルト)[3]
  Water / Steel Prinplup (#394) Empoleon is based on an emperor penguin and Napoleon. Its English name is likely a combination of "emperor" and "Napoleon", though it may also take from "south pole". Its Japanese name is likely derived from "emperor" and "Bonaparte", Napoleon's surname. Its three horns that extend from its head attest to its power. The one with the biggest horns is the leader. It usually avoids unnecessary conflict, yet if anything were to hurt its pride, it will slash them with wings so sharp, it could cleave through an ice flow as it swims as fast as a jet boat. Since ancient times, it was feared and named the "Master of the Waves". Its wings are a match for even master crafted blades.
Mukkuru (ムックル)[3]
  Normal / Flying Staravia (#397) Starly and its evolutions are based on grey starlings. Starly can be quite noisy, especially in a flock. Even when small, their wings are powerful, getting hit by one will leave you sore for a week.
Mukubādo (ムクバード)[8]
  Normal / Flying Starly (#396) Staraptor (#398) It flies around forests and fields in search of bug-type Pokémon. It stays within a huge flock, though they often fight among themselves. Some people say that the larger the plume on Staravia's head, the stronger it is
Mukuhōku (ムクホーク)[9]
  Normal / Flying Staravia (#397) When Staravia evolve into Staraptor, they go solitary for the rest of their life. Because of how strong their wings are, the can carry very large prey.
Bippa (ビッパ)[10]
  Normal Bibarel (#400) Bidoof is based on beavers and gophers, likely the mountain beaver specifically due to its lack of a tail. Bidoof's English name is likely derived from "beaver" and "doofus", slang for "stupid person". It is also possible that part of the name is derived from "shadoof", which is a device used to irrigate water. Its Japanese name may be taken from "beaver", and "deppa" (出っ歯), meaning "protruding tooth". With nerves of steel, nothing can perturb it. It is more agile and active than it appears. It constantly gnaws on logs and rocks to whittle down its front teeth. It nests alongside the water. There have been incidents involving Bidoof sauntering into villages and gnawing on the houses without a single care. A comparison revealed that Bidoof's front teeth grow at the same rate as Rattata's.
Bīdaru (ビーダル)[10]
  Normal / Water Bidoof (#399) People in factories love to work with Bibarel because of its reliability. Its fur not only repeals water but is great at keeping in heat. It builds large dams near waters with the sticks and branches that it cuts down with its large teeth.

  Bug Kricketune (#402) If it bangs its antennae together, it will sound like a xylophone playing.
Korotokku (コロトック)[10]
  Bug Kricketot (#401) By rubbing its two arms together, it plays sounds that portray its emotions, which scientists are still trying to figure out. Kricketune's cry is famous among fans for its over the top nature.
Korinku (コリンク)[5]

Subomī (スボミー)[12]
  Grass / Poison Roselia (#315) Over the winter, Budew closes its bud, only to open it up in spring and release toxic pollen into the air that can bring sneezing and runny noses. Living along clear ponds, it is really sensitive to temperature as the bud is said to open when it feels the warm sun's touch. If its bud starts to open, it means spring is right around the corner, and if it is raised alongside clean water, the toxicity of its poison will increase.
Rozureido (ロズレイド)[8]
  Grass / Poison Roselia (#315) With movements like a dancer, Roserade attracts prey with a sweet smelling aroma, and then finishes them off with its whips which are densely lined with toxic thorns. Each hand contains a different type of poison. One is fast acting poison, and one is slow acting poison, and while it can jab with near-fatal power, both are really deadly. The sweeter the aroma, the more toxic it is.

Fuwante (フワンテ)[21]
  Ghost / Flying Drifblim (#426) Some video game journalists regarded Drifloon's design as insipid and strange, while others considered it one of the weirdest or disturbing Pokémon ever.[22][23][24][25][26][27][28] There has also been some commentary on Drifloon's backstory and origins, with critics labelling it as "horrifying,"[29] "odd piece of lore,"[30] "creepy,"[31] "one messed up pocket monster,"[32] and even "the ultimate predator."[33] Gizmodo described Drifloon as the Ghost type Pokémon that murders unsuspecting humans to drain their life force.[34] Gita Jackson of Kotaku stated that "in cultures all across the world, a common way for people to show their respects to children who have died is to release balloons, when it is said that children who tug on the hands of Drifloon, mistaking it for a balloon will mysteriously disappear."[26] Steven Bogos of The Escapist listed Drifloon as his favorite Pokémon, stating that "Drifloon is a goddamn balloon. Some people would call it one of the worst Pokémon designs, but those people have obviously never kicked the crap out of the elite four with a balloon."[35] Andrew Webster of The Verge claimed that Drifloon is the best Pokémon of all time, stating that "Drifloon is a classic example of how deceptive appearances can be."[36]
Fuwaraido (フワライド)[13]
  Ghost / Flying Drifloon (#425) When it dies, it is said that the gas it excretes is children's souls that it ate.
Mimiroru (ミミロル)[8]
  Normal Lopunny (#428) The reason it has one ear rolled up is in case a foe attacks it. It then uses its ear as a counterattack. Some people also think this is because it is limiting the sound it hears. If both ears are rolled up, something is very wrong and you should probably stay away.
Mimiroppu (ミミロップ)[13]

It makes its Murkrow cronies bring it food as it idles its time away, grooming itself in its nest. Though it is merciless by nature, as it is said that it never forgives the mistakes of its Murkrow followers.

Garchomp is fast both underground and in the sky. It can bring down prey and return to its den before its body has chilled from being outside.

Jibakoiru (ジバコイル)[10]

Galarian people favor the distinctive aroma that drifts from this Pokémon's leaves. There's a popular perfume made using that scent. Its cells are found to be just like plants too.

Porigon Z (ポリゴンZ)[11]
  Normal Porygon2 (#233) It has not appeared in the anime due to the episode "Dennō Senshi Porygon," which caused Japanese children to have seizures in 1997. Additional software was installed in it, hoping to make it better. However it began acting really strange. The developer of the bizarre disc that was used might have had some bugs. It was modified to allow it to travel through alien dimensions, though it didn't work as planned. Not even academics really know if Porygon-Z can truly be considered an evolution.
Erureido (エルレイド)[8]
  Psychic / Fighting Kirlia (#281) Mega Evolution This male-only Pokémon, along with Gardevoir, seem to be a current relative to Iron Valiant. True to its honorable warrior image, it is a master of courtesy and swordsmanship, and it can extend its elbows into blades and fight savagely, but it usually does this to protect something or someone. Because it can sense what its foe is thinking, its attacks burst out first, fast, and fierce. Sharply attuned to others' wishes for help, this Pokémon seeks out those in need and aids them in battle. The blades extending from its elbows are sharper than the finest swords. Its swordsmanship, albeit self-taught, is astonishingly impressive. It evolves from Kirlia using a Dawn Stone.

Yukimenoko (ユキメノコ)[10]
  Ice / Ghost Snorunt (#361) It is a female-only Pokémon whose design is inspired by the Japanese yōkai Yuki-onna, a vengeful spirit that takes the form of a woman and traps its victims with its icy breath or within blizzards.[51] If you are inside your house (and trapped in a blizzard), you should always try to be careful. When you hear a knocking at your door, always check before you answer because it might be a wild Froslass, which can surprisingly freeze you to death instantly if you are not careful.

  Electric / Ghost No evolution It has a body made of plasma, and its known as a troublesome Pokémon, wreaking havoc upon others. Its electrical body can infiltrate machines and control them in battle or mischief. Research continues on it, as it could be the power source of a unique motor.

  Electric / Ice[nb 7] "Frost Rotom" by possessing a refrigerator. Frost Rotom inhabits a refrigerator made just for it. It battles by spewing cold air, and its pulls pranks just the same way. If left alone, you many find that the bath you just filled has been turned to ice. Then it leaps gleefully in delight after freezing the surrounding area. The special motor within the refrigerator is the key to bringing about Rotom's change in form.
  Electric / Flying[nb 7] "Fan Rotom" by possessing a fan. Fan Rotom inhabits a fan made just for it. It applies the power of wind to pull even better pranks. It will happily blow away any kind of important documents you might have. It whips up powerful winds that really blows people away. It then smirks after a prank well pulled. Out of all the machines it can use, the first one was an electric fan.
  Electric / Grass[nb 7] and "Mow Rotom" by possessing a lawnmower. Mow Rotom inhabits a lawnmower made just for it. As it mows down grass and any flowers you were growing, it scatters the clippings everywhere, then proudly swaggers around, cheering about its accomplishments. It is one of the appliances that led to the development of the Rotom Dex found only in Alola.

Aruseusu (アルセウス)[13]
  Normal No evolution Arceus is a white llama-like Pokémon with a golden arch on its back. It serves as the creator deity for the Pokémon universe. The Pokémon's name in both English and Japanese may be derived from the Ancient Greek word "arkhé" (αρχή), meaning "origin" or "beginning". It may also be derived from "alpha", "deus", a Latin word meaning "god", or "archeus", a part of the astral plane in alchemy.[59] When exposed to a plate of a specific type, Arceus changes its type and color to match that plate.[60] With the Legend Plate, however, Arceus' type changes dynamically to whichever would be the most effective on the opponent.[61][62] Arceus debuted in the movie Arceus and the Jewel of Life, where it serves as one of the film's main characters.[63] In the Pokémon universe, Arceus is known as "The Original One", as it is told in mythology that it emerged from an egg before the universe even existed, and that it "shaped all there is in this world".[64][65] It is also said to have created several Legendary Pokémon with its "1,000 arms".[66][67] It appears in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, where it takes a central role.[68] Arceus also stars in Pokémon: The Arceus Chronicles, a miniseries that takes some inspiration from Legends: Arceus.[69] It along with Smeargle are the only two Pokémon that can learn its signature move Judgement.[70] This Mythical Pokémon is the creator of all things. It is described in myths and legends as the Pokémon that was born from an egg into nothing and shaped the world with it 1,000 arms. It is the protector of all as well.
