The first variant of SP Pokémon were Pokémon Pokémon G, released in Platinum. Pokémon Pokémon G cards are classified as "Galactic's Pokémon" (this text replaces the Pokédex data in the illustration bar) and have an icon of their respective Team Galactic owner in the bottom-right corner of the illustration box.

  • Probopass Pokémon G cannot evolve from Nosepass because it is a Basic Pokémon and because its name is not Probopass.
  • Darkrai Pokémon G cannot be leveled-up into Darkrai LV.X, as its name is not Darkrai.
  • Dialga Pokémon G cannot be leveled-up into Dialga LV.X, but it can be leveled-up into Dialga Pokémon G LV.X.
  • Dialga cannot be leveled-up into Dialga Pokémon G LV.X.
