Pokémon Search

Pokémon Search Details

In Pokémon GO, you can store upwards of 2,500 Pokémon. As this is a large amount, there needs to be a way to search for Pokémon. As standard, you can sort by the following:
Recent Captures
Favourites
National Pokédex Number
HP
Name
Combat Power

However, there is another way. You can search for Pokémon through various different options. This page is to detail all possible search terms. You can also add a ! in front of them to remove Pokémon that hit that specific constraint. You can refine this with & for Pokémon that meet multiple criterea or with a comma to denote Pokémon that meet one of multiple possible criterea
