Gift Pokémon

While a Trainer is on an adventure, they may be given Pokémon. These Pokémon are known as gift Pokémon. Types of gift Pokémon include starter Pokémon and Pokémon Eggs. They exist in the games, anime, and manga.

Gift Pokémon given by Trainers in the games

As with wild Pokémon, gift Pokémon will have the last four moves they could have learned by level up except under extraordinary circumstances. Normally, the player is treated as the Original Trainer of gift Pokémon they receive from NPCs; however, in some particular cases, such as Webster's Spearow in Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver and N's Pokémon in Black 2 and White 2, the NPC is retained as the Pokémon's Original Trainer.
