Pokemon not in Scarlet and Violet – list of every missing Pokemon in Paldea

pokemon scarlet violet cut dex

Pokemon Trainers setting off on their journeys through the Paldea region of Scarlet & Violet may not find all of their favorite creatures, as a large portion of the Pokedex is missing from the Gen 9 games.

There are just over 400 Pokemon in the Regional Pokedex for Paldea. This may seem like a lot at first glance, but not when you consider that there are over 1,000 Pokemon in the National Pokedex following the release of Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

This means that roughly 60% of all Pokemon have been cut from the game, and even when examining the Pokemon that will be introduced when Home is made compatible, there is still a massive portion of the Pokedex that’s been snubbed.

How many Pokemon aren’t in Scarlet & Violet?

According to this list, 556 Pokemon didn’t make it into Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, which is a little more than 50% of the entire National Pokedex.

So, while a large portion of each regional Pokedex may be cut, that leaves plenty of room for over 100 new Pokemon. And with potential DLC on the horizon, there’s still time for hundreds of Pokemon to return over the game’s lifespan.
