List of generation VII Pokémon

The seventh generation (Generation VII) of the Pokémon franchise features 88 fictional species of creatures introduced to the core video game series in the 2016 Nintendo 3DS games Pokémon Sun and Moon and the 2017 3DS games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, with two further species introduced in a 2018 update to the spin-off mobile game Pokémon Go alongside the 2018 core series Nintendo Switch games Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, culminating to a total of 88. Some Pokémon species in this generation were introduced in animated adaptations of the franchise before Sun and Moon.

Since Pokémon X and Y, all Pokémon have been designed by a team of roughly 20 artists, led by Ken Sugimori and Hironobu Yoshida.[1] Sun and Moon take place in the tropical Alola region, composed entirely of islands.[2] Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! are set in the Kanto region, the same setting as generation I.[3] Pokémon Go is an augmented reality mobile game which uses the GPS and camera functions on the player's smartphone to display wild Pokémon in the player's surrounding environment.[4]

The following list details the 88 Pokémon of Generation VII in order of their National Pokédex number. Pokémon number 722 Rowlet to number 802 Marshadow were introduced in Sun and Moon in 2016 and number 803 Poipole to number 807 Zeraora were released in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in 2017. Two mythical Pokémon, Meltan and Melmetal, debuted in Pokémon Go in 2018; Meltan appears in the wild in Pokémon Go when a Pokémon is transferred to Let's Go, Pikachu! or Let's Go, Eevee!, while Melmetal is only obtainable by evolving Meltan in Pokémon Go when the player collects candies.[5] In addition to the new species of Pokémon, two new formes of Zygarde appeared in Sun and Moon—having previously appeared in the Pokémon anime: the dog-like "Zygarde 10% Forme" and mech-like "Zygarde Complete (100%) Forme".[6] Alternate forms that result in type changes and regional forms are included for convenience.

Design and developmentEdit

Pokémon Sun and Moon introduced "Alola Forms" of various generation I Pokémon. These versions are to represent "the different microclimates in the Alola region". The Alolan versions of Pokémon like Vulpix and Exeggutor have different appearances and types and were introduced alongside generation VII Pokémon.[7] Alex Hern of The Guardian suggested that the developers likely decided to redesign various generation I Pokémon because, according to him, "fan connection with the original 150 Pokémon is as strong as it ever was, [while] the number of people who can tell a Pancham from a Swirlix is much smaller."[8]

English Japanese Primary Secondary
Rowlet Mokurō (モクロー) 722 Grass Flying Does not evolve Dartrix (#723) Rowlet are owl-like Pokémon that can twist their heads 180° and are capable of attacking silently.[10] Adorned with a leafy bow tie, Rowlet has been well received by fans and critics. Several gaming media outlets consider it to be the most popular of the three Alola Region starters.[11][12] In a poll held by The Pokémon Company International's official Twitter account in which 52,630 people voted, Rowlet received 41% of the vote.[13]
Dartrix Fukusurō (フクスロー) 723 Grass Flying Rowlet (#722) Decidueye (#724) A bit of a dandy, it spends its free time preening its wings. Its preoccupation with any dirt on its plumage can leave it unable to battle.
Decidueye Junaipā (ジュナイパー) 724 Grass Ghost Dartrix (#723) Does not evolve Decidueye also appears as a playable fighter in Pokkén Tournament DX.[further explanation needed] It is based on a Stilt-owl.

Incineroar Gaogaen (ガオガエン) 727 Fire Dark Torracat (#726) Does not evolve Incineroar's design is based on heel fighters and wrestlers.[14] Their waists have flames in the shape of a championship belt. They have a cold persona, but are said to love praise from young Pokémon and children.[15] The design of Incineroar also drew some inspiration from the Hawaiian wildlife.[16] The Shiny Pokémon version of Incineroar changes his color scheme to orange fur with white stripes.[17] Incineroar debuted in Pokémon Sun and Moon for the Nintendo 3DS.[18] It also appears in Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. series, appearing as the last newcomer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.[16][19] Masahiro Sakurai, the game's director, said he chose Incineroar because he wanted a wrestling character for the game.[20] In the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Incineroar is voiced by Unshō Ishizuka, who also voiced Professor Oak in the Pokémon anime. It marked one of his final voice acting appearances before his 2018 death a few months before the release of the game.[21][22] Tyler Bunch provides the character voice in the English version.[23] In the Pokémon anime, Incineroar debuted in the 2017 film Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, under the ownership of Cross.[24][25] Incineroar initially received criticism from fans before it was officially revealed as it was assumed to be a dual Fire/Fighting-type Pokémon, a strongly disliked trend among Fire-type starters. Dustin Kemp of The Inquisitr called Incineroar's eventual reveal a "brilliant trolling maneuver by GameFreak".[14] Incineroar has received mixed reviews from critics and fans. Matthew Guida of The Gamer has complimented Incineroar, calling it a "fearsome Pokémon" and particularly praised its Shiny Pokémon form, which he said "adds a majestic and regal appearance to its regular design".[17] Allegra Frank of Polygon critiqued Incineroar's design of a "gigantic fighting feline monster", compared to its pre-evolution Litten, to be "upsetting" and leaving fans "extremely disheartened", but nonetheless praised its Fire/Dark typing as "some good to be found in Incineroar’s official reveal".[26] Oliver Cragg of International Business Times was critical of Incineroar in Pokémon Sun and Moon because "its stats are spread so broadly that it fails to excel at anything", and that its attacks are "a tad underpowered".[27] Jordan Minor of Geek.com praised the addition of Incineroar to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate because its professional wrestling-inspired grapple moves are so different than those of other playable characters. He wrote: "We're excited to try out up close and personal grabs and lariats or even bouncing foes against the ropes."[16]
Popplio Ashimari (アシマリ) 728 Water Does not evolve Brionne (#729) Popplio was designed by Ken Sugimori. Popplio are sea lion Pokémon that can do tricks and form water bubbles from their "clown-like nose".[10][28] Popplio originally appeared in Pokémon Sun and Moon as a starter Pokémon. It later appeared in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon[29] and Pokémon Sword and Shield. Aside from the main series, It also appeared in Pokémon Rumble Rush, Pokémon Shuffle, Pokémon Masters EX,[30] Pokkén Tournament[31] and New Pokémon Snap.[32] Lana, a protagonist in the Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon anime, owned a Popplio as her main Pokémon. Popplio made its manga debut in "The Delivery of Rotom and the Girl" chapter of Pokémon Adventures. It was owned by Professor Kukui and later evolved fully into Primarina.[33]

In contrast to the positive reactions to Rowlet and Litten, Popplio initially received negative reactions across social media platforms, however these reactions have generally become more neutral over time, leading many to see Popplio as a polarizing addition.[34] In a Twitter poll held by The Pokémon Company International, Popplio was the least popular of the three starters, receiving only 21 percent of the vote.[13] As a result, supporters of Popplio began to defend the Pokémon. According to Christian Hoffer, "the sea lion has been subjected to so much derision...Popplio's few fans have even formed a 'Popplio Defense Squad' dedicated to sending out positive vibes for the disparaged Pokemon".[35] Kotaku reported that "While most Pokémon fans were freaking out about Litten's perfect name, or Rowlet's cute bowtie, Popplio seemed to either attract indifference, hate, or worse, straight-up pity".[36] Fans already called Popplio as "ugly", and its evolution would even bother fans more about the Pokémon being too "feminine".[37]

In response to the criticisms, Pokémon Sun and Moon director Shigeru Ohmori stated that "I personally think that Popplio was very cute and he'll be very popular with a lot of people."[38] During the voting of Polygon staff on which is the best Pokémon starter of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, none of them voted Popplio. Ashely Oh described Popplio as a "shitty, nominal derivative of Piplup", later stating that "Popplio has a lot of things wrong with it, but maybe it's not Popplio's fault that Popplio looks like a secondhand child clown."[39] Megan Farokhmanesh of The Verge described Popplio as "very ugly", and further stated that his "big dumb nose is so honkable, front flippers are too big, and the back flippers are too small. His ears don't even make sense. Is he a dog or a seal?"[40] Allega Prank praised Popplio's final evolution, and called it "pretty".[41] Sam Loveridge of Digital Spy claimed that due to the hatred of Popplio, the Pokémon Sun and Moon creators even don't like Popplio.[42] Daniel Dockery of Syfy ranked Popplio as 20th of 23 starter Pokémon, though he also described "It's adorable."[43] Laura Gray of Screen Rant called Popplio "pretty cute".[44] Paste Magazine gave a positive review of Popplio while comparing it with Mimikyu.[45] Nintendo World Report noted the type advantages it enjoys in Pokémon Sun and Moon.[46]
