|List of Pokémon by generation|
|Related: List of Pokémon|
The first generation (Generation I) of the Pokémon franchise features the original 151 fictional species of creatures introduced to the core video game series in the 1996 Game Boy games Pokémon Red and Blue.
The following list details the 151 Pokémon of Generation I in order of their National Pokédex number. The first Pokémon, Bulbasaur, is number 001 and the last, Mew, is number 151. Alternate forms that result in type changes are included for convenience. Mega evolutions and regional forms are included on the pages for the generation in which they were introduced. MissingNo., a glitch, is also on this list.
Design and development
The majority of Pokémon in Generation I had relatively simple designs and were highly analogous to real-life creatures including but not limited to: Pidgey (a pigeon), Krabby (a crab), Rattata (a rat), Ekans (a snake), Arbok (a cobra), Seel (a seal), and Dewgong (a dugong). Many Pokémon in the original games served as the base for repeating concepts later in the series.
List of Pokémon
|Type(s)||Evolves from||Evolves into||Notes|
|Bulbasaur||Fushigidane (フシギダネ)||0001||Grass||Poison||Beginning of evolution||Ivysaur (#002)||It uses the nutrients that are stored in the seed on its back in order to grow. The reception of Bulbasaur has been largely positive and it often appears in "top Pokémon lists". Its English name is a portmanteau of "bulb" and "dinosaur".|
|Ivysaur||Fushigisō (フシギソウ)||0002||Grass||Poison||Bulbasaur (#001)||Venusaur (#003)||When it's exposed to sunlight, the seed, now a bud, grows so much that it apparently loses the ability to stand on its hind legs. It grows by drawing in energy and when a wafting scent fills the area and it spends more time in the sun, it's ready to evolve. To support this weight, its legs grow thicker in size and strength. Ivysaur is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a part of the "Pokémon Trainer" fighter. Its English name is a portmanteau of "ivy" and "dinosaur".|
|Venusaur||Fushigibana (フシギバナ)||0003||Grass||Poison||Ivysaur (#002)||Mega Evolution
|Its English name is a portmanteau of "Venus" (relating to the Venus flytrap) and "dinosaur". It is based on the Pareiasaur. It is the mascot of Pokémon Green and LeafGreen. It's always on the move to seek sunlight so it can absorb it for energy. When it does this, it tends to lay still. The aroma from the flower it now has on its back can sooth and calm people down. It's said that if a Venusaur gets enough sunlight, its flower will take on vivid coloration. As a result, it's way more powerful in the summer time. After a rainy day, its flower will smell stronger. The scent attracts other Pokemon.|
|Charmander||Hitokage (ヒトカゲ)||0004||Fire||Beginning of evolution||Charmeleon (#005)||Charmander is a bipedal, salamander-like creature with a flame at the tip of its tail. Its English name is a portmanteau of "char" and "salamander". Preferring hot places, there is a flame at the tip of is tail. Even newborns have a flame, though, unfamiliar with fire, they sometimes accidentally burn themselves. When it rains, you can see smoke coming from it, and it makes a sound too, though you'll have to be in a quiet place to hear it. The flame determines its vitality and emotions, the brighter it is, the healthier it is. Similarly when its tail is wavering, it is happy and when blazing, it is angry. If its flame were to ever go out, it would die.|
|Charmeleon||Rizādo (リザード)||0005||Fire||Charmander (#004)||Charizard (#006)||Charmeleon is similar to Charmander yet larger. Its English name is a portmanteau of "char" and "chameleon".

When breathing fire which reaches great temperatures, it inflicts terrible pain on its foes, and the flame at the end of its tail burns more fiercely, though it will never use its fiery breath on foes weaker than itself. It quickly melt glaciers weighing more than 10,000 tons. If it becomes furious, its flames become bluish-white, and its wings can let it soar up to 4,600 feet as it flies in search of stronger opponents. It's said that it fire burns hotter if it has experienced harsher battles. It gains the Dragon type upon Mega Evolving into Mega Charizard X.

When born, its back swells into a shell which after some time will become resilient, and it takes time for the shell to harden. When it feels threatened, it tucks in its limbs and hides in its shell.

Kadabra and Alakazam were the direct counters to the Gastly line of Ghost-type Pokémon since they were dual types with Poison-type, hence weak to psychic-type moves. Throughout the series, the Abra and Gastly lines were considered rivals.|
|Machop||Wanrikī (ワンリキー)||0066||Fighting||Beginning of evolution||Machoke (#067)||The best thing about Machop is that its muscles never get sore. It can hurl around 100 adult humans before it gets tired.|
|Machoke||Gōrikī (ゴーリキー)||0067||Fighting||Machop(#066)||Machamp (#068)||Machoke is typically used for heavy lifting jobs due to its super strength. Its appearance is similar to a WWE-style wrestler, with what appears to be exercise shorts.|

|Victreebel||Utsubotto (ウツボット)||0071||Grass||Poison||Weepinbell (#070)||End of evolution||It was the last Generation I Pokémon to be created. All of Bellsprout's evolutions are based on various fly-catcher plants, with Victreebel the closest-looking one. Team Rocket's James has a Victreebel that has a habit of chewing on him.|
|Tentacool||Menokurage (メノクラゲ)||0072||Water||Poison||Beginning of evolution||Tentacruel (#073)||If Tentacool isn't in the water, it will shrivel up because it is mostly water. Tentacool is a jellyfish-esque Pokémon, which later on in the franchise, is said to be fluid-filled. This fluid is toxic and damages opponents who use HP draining attacks instead of healing them.|
|Tentacruel||Dokukurage (ドククラゲ)||0073||Water||Poison||Tentacool (#072)||End of evolution||Tentacruel is a large, multi-tentacled jellyfish Pokémon that has two claws or beaks and two large, red jewels on its head.|

Geodude has an Alolan form that is a Rock/Electric type, and has metal spines. It appears as an armed rock.|
|Graveler||Gorōn (ゴローン)||0075||Rock||Ground||Geodude (#074)||Golem (#076)||Graveler has an Alolan form that is a Rock/Electric type. It appears as a large rock that has two large arms and two small arms. This appearance suggests that the smaller arms are the old Geodude arms and the new ones emerged as it grew larger.|
|Golem||Gorōnya (ゴローニャ)||0076||Rock||Ground||Graveler (#075)||End of evolution||Golem is known for rolling down from mountains. To prevent them from rolling into the homes of people downhill, grooves have been dug into the sides of mountains to serve as guideways for diverting this Pokémon's course.

|Rapidash||Gyaroppu (ギャロップ)||0078||Fire||Ponyta (#077)||End of evolution||As a popular Pokémon, Rapidash is considered "universally appealing" to fans of cute and cool Pokémon alike. Both Ponyta and Rapidash can enable their body's flames to be harmful or harmless as seen in the anime. Its Galarian form is a Psychic/Fairy type, and is pinkish purple in color instead.

A very competitive pokemon, if it sees anything faster than it, it will go full speed in 10 steps to out run it at 150mph. At that point, its hooves barely touch the ground because it's moving so fast, it can traverse all of Hisui in a day and a half. The faster it goes, the longer its fiery mane becomes. Otherwise it can be seen cantering in fields.|
|Slowpoke||Yadon (ヤドン)||0079||Water||Psychic||Beginning of evolution||Slowbro (#080)
|It's really slow-witted, oblivious and likes to loll about. It takes 5 seconds for it to feel pain when attacked. Slowpoke uses its tail to catch prey by dipping it in water at the side of a river. However, this Pokémon often forgets what it's doing and often spends entire days just loafing at water's edge. Even if its tail is bitten off, it won't feel it or notice. Although not nutritious, its tail is pleasant to chew on. When soaked in water, a sweet sap leaks from the tip of its tail. It can be added to stews for a nice flavor. Alolan homes often cook by simmering dried Slowpoke tails into a salty stew. Its tail naturally falls off, but don't worry though, it regenerates its tail back quickly. There are some places where it's worshipped because of a long standing belief that when a Slowpoke yawns, it rains. Its Galarian form is a Psychic type. Trading Slowpoke while it holds a King's Rock evolves it into Slowking.|
|Slowbro||Yadoran (ヤドラン)||0080||Water||Psychic||Slowpoke (#079)||Mega Evolution||Slowpoke has fished up a Shellder with its tail, which shocked it into evolving and made it stand on two legs. The Shellder apparently likes the taste of its tail so much it feels like it a dream, and now refuses to let go, which has metamorphosed into a spiral shaped shell. If the Shellder were to detach itself from Slowbro in any way, it will devolve back to Slowpoke. The Shellder is said to feed off of Slowbro's leftover scraps as it lives lazily by the sea. Being slow witted to begin with, it doesn't feel anything because of Shellders seeping poison. Since its tail has been bit by Shellder, it now has to grudgingly swim for prey instead. Whenever Shellder bites down on its tail, it gives Slowbro a flash of inspiration, which it forgets a moment later. Its Galarian form is a Poison/Psychic type. The appearance of the Shellder is different than how they normally look. In the Gold and Silver demo, the Shellder was its own Pokemon, named Turban, before it was scrapped.|
|Magnemite||Koiru (コイル)||0081||Electric||Steel[nb 4]||Beginning of evolution||Magneton (#082)||It was a pure Electric type in Kanto, but had the Steel type added in Gold and Silver. It tends to appear without warning and uses anti gravity to float around. The two units on its side are like magnets and used for discharging attacks. It's attracted to electromagnetic waves from devices such as using your Pokegear, and it attaches itself to power breakers. If you experience a power outage that isn't from a storm, it could be Magnemites feeding on it. It becomes incapable of flight if it out of electricity. When that happens, giving it a battery should help it out. The two magnets on its side are powerful enough to draw in iron objects from 300 feet away. The faster they rotate, the greater the magnetic field it generates. Touching it while it's eating electricity will give you a full body shock. Radio towers and power plants are great sources of food for them. The reason why the numbers have been decreasing is because most power lines are buried these days.|
|Magneton||Reakoiru (レアコイル)||0082||Electric||Steel[nb 4]||Magnemite (#081)||Magnezone (#462)||Formed when several Magnemites fuse together, it tends to raise the temperature up by 3.6°F within 3,600 ft. It generates strange radio signals and they tend to gather where sun flares happen. Earaches can occur if you get close to one. Its magnetism is so powerful it dries up moisture in its vicinity, and it's fatal to devices if it were to go near one as devices like TVs will stop playing correctly. When many Magneton gather, it disrupts radio signals. As a result, large cities have sirens to warn their citizens of this occurrence and some even warn people to keep it inside their Pokeballs. When it evolves, their brains link up too, though they don't become three times smarter. When rain clouds form, they like to gather in high spots where lightning could strike. It seems that Sandy Shocks is a futuristic relative of it. It evolves into Magnezone while in range of a special magnetic field or a Thunder Stone in later games.|
|Farfetch'd||Kamonegi (カモネギ)||0083||Normal||Flying||No evolution[nb 5]||Farfetch'd is a duck-like Pokémon that carries around a green onion stalk much like a sword. It apparently knows where the best ones are and will battle over them. It will eat them in emergencies, then it'll run off to find a new one. They were so rare at one point that people bred them to regrow the population, and it worked. There are good stalks and bad stalks, and since it can't live with out them, it will defend it with its life. It was originally called "Okupan" in early development and was intended to have an evolution named "Madame" in Generation II's early development. Its Galarian form is a Fighting type, appears to resemble a feudal Japan-style samurai or ronin, and uses a larger onion-stalk. In Pokémon Go, it is exclusive to certain regions of Asia.|
|Doduo||Dōdō (ドードー)||0084||Normal||Flying||Beginning of evolution||Dodrio (#085)||This 2 headed bird leaves giant footprints. Its short wings make flying difficult. Instead, it runs at high speed on well-developed legs at over 60 mph. It races through grassy plains with powerful strides, leaving footprints up to four inches deep. By alternately raising and lowering its two heads, it balances itself to be more stable while running. Doduo's two heads never sleep or eat at the same time. Its two heads take turns to sleep or eat, so one head can always keep watch for enemies while the other one sleeps. Doduo's two heads contain completely identical brains. A scientific study reported that on rare occasions, there will be examples of Doduo possessing different sets of brains. The brains in its two heads appear to communicate emotions to each other with telepathic power. It was originally intended to have a pre-evolution in Generation II. It appears to resemble a two-headed ostrich or emu, mixed with a roadrunner.|
|Dodrio||Dōdorio (ドードリオ)||0085||Normal||Flying||Doduo (#084)||End of evolution||The three heads express joy, sorrow, and anger as they plan strategy together. When it sleeps, one head remains awake.

It has a thick hide covered in warm fur. It even goes in waters that can be up to -40°F. Though it's not a great walker, it is a skilled swimmer. It closes its nostrils when it swims and in the daytime, it can be found sleeping on the seabed of shallow waters. Therefore, them being in Alola is quite a mystery. Its design is based on the real-life seal.|
|Dewgong||Jugon (ジュゴン)||0087||Water||Ice||Seel (#086)||End of evolution||A fisherman once saw a Dewgong on an iceberg and thought it was a mermaid. Its design is based on the real-life dugong.|

It appears as a purple sludge, while its Alolan form is multiple colours.|
|Muk||Betobeton (ベトベトン)||0089||Poison||Grimer (#088)||End of evolution||Muk's English name comes from the word "muck". It could be based on Dorotabō, a one-eyed, three-fingered yōkai that rises from the mud of neglected, overgrown rice fields. It's covered in a toxic filthy sludge that is so vile, that plants die wherever it walks due to there being poison it is footprints. Just a drop of its body fluid can turn a pool rancid or leave a person bed ridden for days from poisoning. Its nose has devolved, so it can't really smell anything. It feeds on anything repugnant and filthy, like sewer water. It prefers warm and humid environments. Its numbers have started declining since people have began cleaning up towns,and because some people think it may go extinct, sludge pools are being built to prevent this. Muk has an Alolan form that is a Poison/Dark type. Like Grimer, Alolan Muk has multiple colours, and now bears razor-sharp poisonous crystal-esque teeth.|
|Shellder||Sherudā (シェルダー)||0090||Water||Beginning of evolution||Cloyster (#091)||When it sleeps, it will still stick its tongue out. It appears as a typical clam or bivalve with a long, pink tongue.|

The Leer in the darkness belongs to a Gengar. If you feel an attacking sudden chill of 10°F cooler, its trying to curse you. If it does this, there's no escape. Give up. Even your home isn't safe. Gengar will lurk in whatever dark corner of a room it can find and wait for its chance to catch its prey. It likes to attack people in the mountains. Sometimes, on a dark night, your shadow thrown by a streetlight will suddenly and startlingly overtake you. It's actually a Gengar running past you, pretending to be your shadow. It often tries to steal the life force of people. It apparently wishes for a traveling companion. Since it was once human itself, it tries to create one by taking the lives of other humans. If your shadow begins to laugh, you must take hold of a protective charm immediately! Initially created by Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori, it has become one of the most popular Pokémon, placing tenth on the Google Pokémon of the Year 2020 poll. Kotaku's Zack Zwiezen said Gengar was "one of [their] favorite gen 1 designs", calling it a "great design [because] it’s simple, yet not boring or generic". Gengar has appeared in many Pokémon spin-offs or crossovers, including Pokkén Tournament and Pokémon Unite.|
|Onix||Iwāku (イワーク)||0095||Rock||Ground||Beginning of evolution||Steelix (#208)||Onix is a large rock snake with a spike on its head. It usually lives underground. As it grows, the stone portions of its body harden to become similar to a diamond, but colored black. It burrows at high speed in search of food, and the tunnels it leaves are used as homes by Diglett. Its large body is over 26 feet long, yet despite its size, it can squirm its way through the ground at 50 mph. The thunderous roar of its tunneling echoes a long way. As it digs through the ground, it absorbs many hard objects and this is what makes its body so solid. It even eats boulders while digging. Onix has a magnet in its brain. It acts as a compass so that this Pokémon does not lose direction while it is tunneling. As it grows older, its body becomes increasingly rounder and smoother. It evolves into Steelix when traded while holding a Metal Coat.|
|Drowzee||Surīpu (スリープ)||0096||Psychic||Beginning of evolution||Hypno (#097)||Drowzee's design is based on the dream-eating tapir, Baku. It puts people to sleep and then it likes to eat dreams. It can get sick from eating bad ones though. If you sleep by it a lot, it might show you dreams it ate in the past. It's said to have descended from a legendary beast called Baku. If you had a dream but can't remember it, Drowzee probably ate it. It remembers every dream it ate and it rarely eats the dreams of adults because children's are so much tastier. If your nose gets itchy while you're sleeping, dowzee is probably right above your bed eating your dream through your nostrils. It's skilled in hypnotism. It can tell what your dreaming by smelling it. Drowzee appears as a half-yellow-half-brown Pokémon that stands on two legs, and its size varies. In later generations, it is given the Insomnia trait, making it immune to Sleep status inflicting moves.|

Its 3 heads think independently of one another, but if they want to go in different directions, they'll be unable to move. That's why they use telepathy to make a joint decision. Sometimes one of the heads grows so big, due to the sun, that they tend to fall off and become an Exeggcute. Its cries are very noisy because each head thinks about what it likes. Surprisingly, they're very friendly and only engage their enemies with psychic power when it needs to. It originally came from the tropics, so it's known as the "Walking Forest" and each head doesn't seem to be interested in one another. Cloudy days make it sluggish. Exeggutor has an Alolan form that is a Grass/Dragon type and has a really long trunk-esque neck.|
|Cubone||Karakara (カラカラ)||0104||Ground||Beginning of evolution||Marowak (#105)||Because it never removes its skull helmet, no one has ever seen this Pokémon's real face.

Cubone pines for the mother it will never see again. Seeing a likeness of its mother in the full moon, it cries. The stains on the skull the Pokémon wears are made by the tears it sheds.

It may also be based on Kabandha, a demon from Hindu mythology. Its English name is derived from actor and martial artist Bruce Lee. When it's in a hurry, its legs strengthen progressively. It smoothly runs with extra long strides. When kicking, the soles of its feet turn as hard as diamond as its legs freely stretch to destroy its foes. It has amazing balance, able to attack from any stance. Some people call it the "Kicking Master." After a battle it rubs down its springy legs to overcome fatigue. Its legs can stretch to double its length, so first time fighters are amazed by its extendable reach.

If you don't wash it off immediately, it will break out into a itchy rash that won't go away. Its tongue can stretch up to 6'6 and when it does, its tail quivers and contracts. It has nerves that run through its tongue so it can use it quite freely. It licks filthy things clean but whatever it clean always stinks afterwards so it's really questionable whether or not it's truly clean. Whenever Lickitung cones across something new, it always gives it a lick to memorize the taste and texture of that thing. It doesn't care for sour things. If you boil its viscous saliva down, it becomes quite a strong adhesive. It evolves into Lickilicky while knowing Rollout.|

When an examination of its cells revealed the presence of a gene not found in Horsea, it immediately became a hot topic. Its fin tips leak poison, and its fins and bones are highly valued as ingredients in herbal medicine. Seadra sleeps after wriggling itself between the branches of coral and those trying to harvest coral are occasionally stung by this Pokémon's poison barbs if they fail to notice it. Seadra generates whirlpools by spinning its body, and the whirlpools are strong enough to swallow even fishing boats.

Scientists think that the reason it has such large hands is for pantomiming. Its Galarian form is an Ice/Psychic type. In the anime, Ash's mom has a Mr. Mime as a housekeeping helper. Mr. Mime is known for creating invisible barriers. Despite being found in both male and female genders, the name never changes.|
|Scyther||Sutoraiku (ストライク)||0123||Bug||Flying||Beginning of evolution||Scizor (#212)
|IGN and GamesRadar have praised Scyther's "cool" design. Scyther is known as a Mantis Pokémon, and with its ninja like movements, it can appear like there's more than one at a time. It can slice thick logs with a single wicked stroke and on rare occasions, it flies with its wings. It's very proud of its speed, its so fast that when it cuts grass, foes will only see a blur, and it doesn't help that it camouflages with the grass, too. It's very popular in Alola. While young, they live together deep in the mountains, training themselves in how to fight with their scythes and move at high speeds. It evolves into Scizor after being traded while holding a Metal Coat. When given the Black Augurite, it evolves into Kleavor.|
|Jynx||Rūjura (ルージュラ)||0124||Ice||Psychic||Smoochum (#238)||End of evolution||Jynx has spawned controversy due to aspects of its design being similar to blackface, leading Game Freak to change the color of its skin from black to purple. When Pokémon Yellow was rereleased on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console, the in-game sprite of Jynx was edited to reflect this change. Jynx's appearance is a purple humanoid with blond hair and a dress. It has big lips that it uses to put opponents to sleep by kissing them. It evolves from Smoochum.|
|Electabuzz||Erebū (エレブー)||0125||Electric||Elekid (#239)||Electivire (#466)||It gathers near power plants to feast on electricity. In the dark, it glows a whitish-blue colour. In Generation II it gained a pre-evolution, Elekid, and in Generation IV it gained an evolution, Electivire.|
|Magmar||Būbā (ブーバー)||0126||Fire||Magby (#240)||Magmortar (#467)||While Magmar was voted the eighth best fire-type Pokémon by the Official Nintendo Magazine readers, GamesRadar had criticised its design multiple times, noting that its forehead resembles a butt. Magmar evolves from Magby and into Magmortar. It is famed for being the first Pokémon to use Fire Punch, and is one of gym leader Blaine's best Pokémon. Ash Ketchum, being the genius that he is, tried to fight this Fire-type with his own Fire-type, Charizard.|
|Pinsir||Kairosu (カイロス)||0127||Bug||Beginning of evolution||Mega Evolution||It likes to throw things with its massive horns. It can throw things two times from its weight. It was originally supposed to have an evolution called "Plux" in Generation II. Some speculated this unused design was reworked into Heracross. Pinsir appears as a tan-brown bug, similar in a appearance to an earwig with its pinchers on its head, and a vertical slit like mouth. Its Mega Evolution has wings.|
|Tauros||Kentarosu (ケンタロス)||0128||Normal||No evolution||When attacking, it violently charges while whipping its self with its three tails. A really rowdy and hyper pokemon, once it charges, it won't stop until it hits something. Although powerful, it can only charge in a straight line. They fight each other by locking horns to prove their strength, and the leader prides itself with its battle scared horns. If there's no opponents, it will charge into thick trees, knocking them down. Historically, people have ridden Tauros for ages, but the practice started in Alola, and Tauros in Alola actually have a calm side, most likely due to the climate. Tauros in Galar though are more volatile and won't let people ride on them. In Paldea, it has 3 other forms, with it now being a fighting type along with a Fighting/Fire and a Fighting/Water type.|
|Magikarp||Koikingu (コイキング)||0129||Water||Beginning of evolution||Gyarados (#130)||Magikarp holds the distinction of being mostly useless in the games, until it evolves into the superior Gyarados. Magikarp is based on the common carp. Despite its uselessness, some players like to raise their Magikarps up to level 100 just for fun. At level 15, Magikarp learns Tackle. Until then, it only knows Splash and cannot be taught any TMs or HMs.|
|Gyarados||Gyaradosu (ギャラドス)||0130||Water||Flying||Magikarp (#129)||Mega Evolution||In the beta versions for Pokémon Red and Blue, Gyarados was originally named "Skullkraken".

It originally had a completely different, more lamprey-esque design in Red and Green's early development. It is known to be a hard Pokémon to raise by inexperienced trainers. The shiny version is red, and plays a role in the series. It appears normally as a long blue sea dragon, despite not being Dragon-type. It is also the only Flying type that doesn't fly; instead of this, it can hover.|
|Lapras||Rapurasu (ラプラス)||0131||Water||Ice||Beginning of evolution||Gigantamax||It has a very gentle nature and was hunted before it became illegal. Gigantamax Lapras is exclusive to Shield.

Its Gigantamax form has "water magic" around it.|
|Ditto||Metamon (メタモン)||0132||Normal||No evolution||Ditto is capable of transforming into any Pokémon that it comes across. It was originally intended to have an evolution in Generation II called "Animon" which it would have evolved from a Metal Coat. Fan speculation is that Ditto and Mew are related as Mew can also use Transform, a move exclusive to Ditto. In the anime, Ditto belonging to Duplica had an issue with accurately mimicking appearances where its face always looked like Ditto's own. It appears as a pink blob or amoeba.|
|Eevee||Ībui (イーブイ)||0133||Normal||Beginning of evolution||Multiple[nb 7]
|Eevee is often considered among the "cutest" Pokémon in the franchise. Due to this, Eevee is featured on various Pokémon-related merchandise. It is the mascot of Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! Eevee has exclusive evolution styles, where each evolution requires special requirements to occur, resulting in 8 different Pokémon. Eevee is rarely found in the wild and is mostly only found in cities and towns. However, it is said to have an irregularly shaped genetic structure that is easily influenced by its environment or though the radiation of certain stones. This allows it to adapt to a variety of habitats by evolving into eight different evolutions. Some call it and its evolutions the "Eeveelutions". Eevee can also adapt the face of the Trainer that owns it, and Eevee's genes are believed to have the key to solving the mysteries of Pokémon evolution. Its Gigantamax form is bigger and has a thicker fur around his neck.|
|Vaporeon||Shawāzu (シャワーズ)||0134||Water||Eevee (#133)||End of Evolution||Its genes and DNA are similar to that of water, so as soon as it touches water, it looks like it just melted away. If its fins begin to mutate, it means it'll rain in a couple of hours. It now has the ability to freely control water and its tail has gotten people often mistaking it for a mermaid. It evolves from Eevee using a Water Stone.|
|Jolteon||Sandāsu (サンダース)||0135||Electric||Eevee (#133)||End of evolution||Jolteon and Zapdos's romanized Japanese names are almost exactly the same as each other's, with a final 's' being the only difference. It accumulates negative ions in the air to dish out 10,000 volt discharges. Its a really moody Pokemon, easily becoming sad or angry. Its fur is like spikes and can be launched to pierce enemies when it bristles. Jolteons cells emit a low amount of electricity, which is amplified by its fur. If its hair stands on end, it's about to discharge. Sometimes lighting can strike next to it and its lungs contain an organ that creates electricity. The crackling sound of electricity can be heard when it exhales. It evolves from Eevee using a Thunder Stone.|
|Flareon||Būsutā (ブースター)||0136||Fire||Eevee (#133)||End of evolution||Flareon shares its category name with Charmeleon, Charizard, Moltres, and Infernape, who are all known as the Flame Pokémon.

|Porygon||Porigon (ポリゴン)||0137||Normal||Beginning of evolution||Porygon2 (#233)||Porygon has become notorious for being featured in an episode of the anime that caused widespread epileptic seizures in Japanese viewers. Roughly made about 20 years ago, it's entirely made of programming code. It can enter cyberspace at will. People theorized it could go into space, though no one has managed to do so. It has no heartbeat and doesn't need to eat, though it can eat if food is given. Because of this, people are eager to try it in any environment. It's copy-protected so it cannot be duplicated. Using the most advanced technology at the time, scientists have made the first man made pokemon, dreaming of exploring space. Nowadays, it's actually very useful in cyberspace, as it goes around making sure no suspicious data exists. It is one of many human-designed Pokémon.

It was imagined to be the king of the skies while shrieking high-pitched cries. A widely accepted theory is that it went extinct due to a meteor impact. It exhibited ferocity that was greater than expected, resulting in some casualties. When it touched ground however, it was weak and slow. Surprisingly, even modern technology are still unable to make a truly perfect specimen. It is based on pterodactyls and dragons/wyverns.|
|Snorlax||Kabigon (カビゴン)||0143||Normal||Munchlax (#446)||Gigantamax||It is carefree about everything, and it will allow children to play on its vast belly while it sleeps all day.

Its DNA is actually almost the same as Mew's, but its body is size are vastly different. It's cold, glowing eyes strike fear into its foes.
