The first variant of SP Pokémon were Pokémon  , released in Platinum.

  • Probopass   cannot evolve from Nosepass because its name is not Probopass.
  • Darkrai   cannot be leveled-up into Darkrai LV.X, as its name is not Darkrai.
  • Dialga   cannot be leveled-up into Dialga LV.X, but it can be leveled-up into Dialga   LV.X.
  • Dialga cannot be leveled-up into Dialga   LV.X.
  • One may have 4 Dialga or Dialga LV.X in a deck as well as 4 Dialga   or Dialga   LV.X.
