In this guide you will find one of the multiple ways of completing the Galar Pokedex. If going in order from 0 to 400 isn't your thing this guide will present you with a way of classifying Pokemon based on their obtention method so you can plan ahead and work on specific parts of the dex more efficiently.

  • Trade only Pokemon (fossils, trade evolutions and version exclusives)
    • While you can get some of these by participating in online Raids, waiting for the right raids to appear in Y-Comm might take a considerable amount of time compared to just trading for them. Make sure you have your own version exclusives so other players have an incentive to trade with you.
  • Baby Pokemon
    • Tyrogue, Bonsly, Mantyke and Mime Jr. can be found in overworld encounters. If you are having trouble finding them I recommend you breed them
    • Pichu, Togepi, Clefa, Tyrogue and Riolu can be obtained by breeding using their evolved formes.
