Pokémon games have been around for so long that we’ve finally hit the 1,000 Pokémon available across all generations. The ninth generation of the series, Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, has added a total of 107 new Pokémon for fans new and old to discover and enjoy. In addition to the previous 905 that are available as part of the National Pokédex, this equates to 1013 total Pokémon. But is this really the total number of Pokémon in existence since Pokémon Scarlet & Violet?
What is the total number of Pokémon in existence after the Scarlet and Purple Pokémon (Generation 9)?
While it would be accurate to say that there are only 1,013 Pokémon right now, it’s no secret that more Pokémon tend to be released post-launch. This usually comes in the form of Mystery Gifts, special DLC, or other events that represent a new Pokémon release. In fact, we’ve seen this happen during the release of the Pokémon Sword and Shield, The Isle of Armor, and The Crown Tundra DLCs. Each DLC added new Pokémon to both games, increasing the total number of Pokémon that existed at the time.
With that in mind, it’s entirely possible that the total number of Pokémon could increase over time. But it’s safe to say that since the release of the ninth generation of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, there are roughly over 1,013 Pokémon in existence.
