Even The Most Diehard Pokémon Trainer Won’t Be Able To Identify All Of These Pokémon!

Let Our Expert Quiz Confirm It For You

We're going to go out on a limb and bet you want to be the very best, perhaps even like no one ever was. To catch them is your real test, to train them is your cause. But in your travels across the land, searching far and wide, do you really remember each Pokémon, and understand the power that's inside?

Well, that's the goal of this quiz. You can't call yourself a Pokémon fan if you don't understand the creatures themselves, and most important of all is what they look like, what they're called, and how they relate to each other. After all, if you don't know these things, it'd be like calling yourself a fan of dogs but not knowing what a Chihuahua is, or the fact that it evolves into a Great Dane when you give it a Moon Stone.


Pokémon is a series of video games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo as part of the Pokémon media franchise. It first stormed into the world back in 1996 with the release of Pokémon Red and Green in Japan for the Game Boy. 

The games are commonly released in pairs, each with slight variations, with a remake of the games usually released a few years after the original versions for another console. While the main series consists of RPGs, many spin-off games based on the series have been developed by various companies, encompassing other genres such as action role-playing, puzzle and digital pet games. 

Including spin-offs, as of November 24, 2017, more than 300 million Pokémon games have been sold worldwide on handheld and home consoles across 76 titles. This makes it the second best-selling video-game franchise, behind Nintendo's own Mario franchise. 

It is the world's largest franchise, standing proudly above Harry Potter, the MCU and the rest. But how much do you really know about these little creatures? Take our test to find out!
