Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s Paldea region is going to be huge and filled with Pokémon, both new and old.

For those looking into what new creatures have been announced via trailers or if they want to see if their favorite Hoenn-region cat ferret Pokémon has been confirmed for the new games (like me), then we have the lists for you.

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Game Freak did not include every previous Pokémon in the game, as there were just way too many to model and find space for. While it’s pretty normal for not every Pokémon to be catchable in every game, many players were disappointed that their favorite obscure Pokémon weren’t even going to be transferable to the Galar region — they just straight up weren’t going to be available in the game in any form. It’s highly likely that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will function the same way, so you’ll want to know if your favorites made the cut.

Below we break up the Pokémon by whether or not they’re native to Paldea, with the assistance of the eternally helpful Serebii.net. All of the new Pokémon have been put in one list, while all the returning Pokémon have been sorted into another list. We’ve order the latter list by the national Pokédex number so you can find your faves easily (since this will naturally sort them by order of game release).

Update (Sept. 28): We’ve added Wigglet, a Pokémon who looks like the eel-like cousin of Diglett but is completely new to the Paldea region.
