DifferencesEdit

If you started playing Pokémon before playing this game, understand that there are a few major differences between this generation and others.

  • Fairy typing for Pokémon did not exist this generation. Many Pokémon that become Fairy type in generation six onwards are simply Normal type in this game.
  • This generation introduced Dark and Steel type Pokémon, adding important counters to many types, especially Psychic type.
