Stats and facts on
your favorite Pokémon!
Over a hundred amazing Pokémon
come from the Johto Region. Now
you can learn everything there
is to know about each and every
one of 'em! Plus, you'll get the
full scoop on types, Trainers, and
much, much more. It's your inside
guide to all of Johto's Pokémon.


The entries for each Pokémon are in an easy-to-read page setup. Each Pokémon has either an entire page to itself, or shares a page with one of its evolutions, or another Pokémon. The Pokémon's name is at the top of the entry, with the category written underneath it.


Each Pokémon has the following stats below its name:

  1. How to say it
  2. Type
  3. Ability
  4. Height
  5. Weight
  6. Possible Moves (moves the Pokémon will learn by leveling up)

Image and other information

Each Pokémon has an anime-style picture on its page with "flavor text" under its name. Legendary Pokémon are labelled as such.

Evolution chain

At the very bottom of a Pokémon's entry is a diagram of its evolutionary family. Pokémon that do not evolve do not have an evolution chain. A Pokémon that is on one side of a branched evolution will show itself, and the Pokémon it evolved from, but not the other side of the branch.



  • When listing all of Ash's Johto Pokémon at the end of the book, his Noctowl is omitted.
