The Pokémon franchise has been going strong for over 25 years. With the release of the two new Switch games Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the series has reached its ninth generation of RPGs. For each new generation, a new region featuring many new Pokémon has been introduced.

The total number of unique species of Pokémon has reached over one thousand. Fortunately for those that like to fill out each game's respected Pokédex, there has yet to be a game that contains all of them. Those might be curious as to how many are available in the new games Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Here is how many Pokémon players will need to complete the Pokédex in Scarlet and Violet.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Pokédex: How Many Pokémon Are in it?

For both Scarlet and Violet, there are 400 Pokémon that can be found in each game. There are 107 new ones added for generation nine. Depending on which version a player picks, there will be some exclusive Pokémon.

Hearing that there are only 400 Pokémon to catch for some is a disappointment. After doing the math that is less than half of the entire Pokémon roster. Some might be relieved that 400 is all they have to catch while at the same time there will be some that find that 400 is too overwhelming to fill out the Pokédex for.

The great thing about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is that the game encourages players to forge their own paths. With its nonlinear and open-world gameplay, players are free to do what they want in the Paldea region. So whether you catch six or all 400 is entirely up to you.
