N's Pokémon are obtainable via Memory Link, with the exception of N's Zorua, who is obtainable through the main story by defeating Rood and receiving it from him. Once Memory Link is used, if the player has completed the storyline of Pokémon Black and White (defeating N and Ghetsis), the player must see a flashback of N releasing his Pokémon with a Team Plasma Grunt prior to the events of N's Castle in Black and White in Chargestone Cave. After seeing this memory, the player may encounter N's Pokémon.
Upon encountering one of N's Pokémon, the game will notify by showing a sprite entry animation that is similar to the Shiny Pokémon sprite, but instead has its own sound and green and yellow diamond lights. This animation will be overwritten if it becomes a star at Pokéstar Studios. The flavor text will read "A wild <Pokémon> appeared?!" Upon being captured, the game will notify the player that the Pokémon already has an original Trainer, before putting it in the player's party or PC storage. Once captured, the Pokémon will have N's ID number, 00002, thus they gain the boosted experience that traded Pokémon do. These Pokémon cannot be nicknamed since they have no Secret ID. N's Pokémon have a set nature and have IVs of 30 in each stat. They are incapable of being Shiny. While there is only one of each Pokémon, if the Pokémon faints or the battle is otherwise ended without the Pokémon being caught, it can be encountered again.
This is a list of Pokémon previously owned by N that are obtainable via Memory Link.
Unlike the other Pokémon, N did not use Woobat, Darmanitan, or Zorua in his battles with the player in Black and White. Instead, these are the Pokémon featured beside a young N in those games' introduction video.
All of N's Pokémon have maximum friendship when captured; they are the only Pokémon in the game for which this is the case.
Only N's ZekromB2 / ReshiramW2 is not categorized as one of N's Pokémon in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
