How many Pokemon do you need to catch to be the best trainer?

If you are a little tired of reviewing the Greek alphabet with the Alpha, Delta or Omicron variants and its advanced BA2 version, you can always (re)dive into other small organisms with much less significant consequences, since virtual: the Pokemon. More than twenty-five years after the “birth” of these imaginary critters, in 1996 in Japan, and a little more than twenty years after the first French version, a new video game from the Pokémon franchise has just been released on January 28.

At this great age, which does not prevent the still very great popularity of this universe, “Pokémon Legends: Arceus” precisely offers players to go back to the origins of Pokémon. In this highly anticipated opus, we explore a feudal age environment, around the legend of the original Pokémon – because, yes, the origin of Pokémon has a story in the saga.

The threshold of 900 Pokémon crossed

But since the origins, precisely, how many mini-monsters have won a place in the Pokédex, the encyclopedia which lists them? Over eight generations, and before the release of this new Arceus game, there were 898 Pokémon imagined over the course of adventures and listed on the official site. By integrating the episode which has just been released and the legendary Pokémon that appear there, there are now 905 Pokémon, in total, which have an identity card and are listed by fans of the game.

Eight generations, yet with many more games? Yes, because we speak of a “generation” of Pokémon when a new opus comes out without being a resumption or a continuation of another story, and that it therefore brings a whole set of new elements. The oldest remember the very first generation marked by Pikachu, Charmander, Bulbizarre, Snorlax or Squirtle.

Older generations still stars

But since these first 151 Game Boy Pokémon and the first derivatives that we owe him, many more or less popular inventions have germinated in the minds of the creators of the games. Grillepaws, Voltoutou, or the powerful Ethernatos are among the most recent creations.

Squirtle and Pikachu were among the very first Pokémon. Variations of their character have been created in new versions, such as a capped Pikachu (The Telegram)

Moreover, the official number of 905 Pokémon hides, in reality, a whole bunch of variations of the same Pokémon over the versions. The cross-generational superstar, Pikachu and his lightning bolt tail, has thus donned all manner of headgear in recent years. The game Pokémon Go, highly publicized because it is used in real landscapes, has in particular multiplied the looks of these heroes.

A challenge at each edition

In short, that in fact, Poké Ball – this tool for capturing Pokémon – to go out to be the best trainer. Can we catch them all at once? Yes, sometimes: in several editions of the game, the entire list is offered as an objective. The scenarios first focus on a regional variation of the Pokédex, before expanding the quest. Players are also waiting to know if this will be the case in the new game just released. But one thing is certain: with each game, the challenge begins again to discover and capture an individual of each specimen, like a careful entomologist.

A feat

It is not easy, however, since it is not enough to cross the cute monsters, but to capture them. We must then take into account their strengths and weaknesses, particularly related to the type of Pokémon: the Fire type fears the Water type, the Insect type surpasses the Plant type, etc.

More expert than you thought? This is one of the great springs of the game! But possible, with abnegation. A few months ago, a player shared a special feat : he captured all of the Pokémon present in each of the games in the saga. The “best trainer”? Maybe, but he still has to start over!
