List of icons

Generation I games

In Pokémon Red, Green and Blue there are ten unique Pokémon icons, internally numbered from 0 to 9. In Pokémon Yellow, Pikachu and Raichu get a new eleventh icon (  ), and the icons are numbered from 0 to 10.

In all Generation I games, Snorlax has its own overworld sprite  , but it still displayed in the party as the generic sprite   shared by several Pokémon.

In Pokémon Yellow, the newly introduced Pikachu icon appears both in the party and the overworld. Some other Pokémon have different sprites when they are seen in the overworld, but they still use the sprites from earlier games when they are in the player's party:

In all Generation I games, when most Pokémon use Surf outside of battle, the player controls a generic sprite   while travelling on water. However, when a Pikachu uses this move in Pokémon Yellow, the player controls a surfing Pikachu sprite   instead.

Generation II games

In Generation II, there are 38 unique Pokémon icons. They are internally numbered from 1 to 38, unlike the previous generation, which started from from 0. There are also some additional Pokémon sprites that are only seen in the overworld.

In this generation, the Pokémon seen in the overworld such as the in-game event wild Lapras, Sudowoodo, Lugia, Ho-Oh, etc. have their own color palettes, but once caught they all share the same color palette, as seen in the party, nickname, and trade screens.

In addition to Snorlax's party icon, there is also a larger Snorlax sprite   used when it appears in the overworld.

In Pokémon Gold and Silver, the Legendary beasts appear together in the overworld as three identical   sprites, each with their own color palette before they are caught. In Pokémon Crystal, they appear in the overworld as the three separate sprites    , but once caught they still use only the   sprite.

In Pokémon Crystal, Celebi appears in the overworld with the sprite   in the Ilex Forest event, but once caught it appears as the   sprite.

Some Generation II icons are based on similar icons from Generation I slots:

  •     are based on     from slots in Pokémon Blue
  •   is based on   from slots in Pokémon Red
  •    are based on    from slots in Pokémon Green

In this generation, some Pokémon dolls are similar to the Pokémon party icons except they are not animated in the game:                     . The Pikachu doll   resembles the Pikachu sprite   from Pokémon Yellow instead, while the Surf Pikachu doll   resembles the surfing Pikachu sprite from both Yellow and the Generation II games.

There are also three larger dolls     for Lapras, Onix, and Snorlax.
