Pokémon Go: Complete Pokédex Silhouette Reference Chart

Download: The Complete Pokédex Character Reference Chart

 

Pokémon Go has taking over my free time the past couple weeks, and it’s weird because I never watched the show and don’t play games on my phone. Is anyone else in the same boat?

I read about the guy who apparently found all the available Pokémon but I couldn’t find an image of all the revealed characters. I was also surprised that it was so difficult to dig up an entire chart of all the Pokémon silhouettes to be able to know whether something close to you is worth searching for. Any longtime fans of Pokémon will already be able to recognize the silhouettes but I’m not so a chart like this is kinda crucial! Consider this a tool for anyone new to show or the game.

The image above is essentially what it looks like to complete your entire Pokédex! This image above is the entire chart with all the characters revealed and below is the full chart as silhouettes (with and without titles). Full credit goes to Reddit user Jadael for posting the images here.

 

Essential Pokémon Go resources:

The Silph Road – this subreddit aims to be the largest online community of Pokémon Go users offering lots of findings.

Lvl 22 Player Giving Small Tips of Advice – this post on Reddit really answers every question you will have about the game and specific advice things like quickly levelling up.

Pokémon Go IV (Individual Values) Calculator – if you want to take the game to the nerdiest level possible, use the Google Doc linked here to accurately calculate if you should continue powering up your Pokémon or transfer it and move on.

 

Maybe I’m a huge nerd for liking this game but I can’t remember the last time I walked around my city and struck up as many conversations (albeit very nerdy conversations) with so many complete strangers of all ages. So far I’ve found 67 Pokémon and I’m level 17. Any other Booooooom readers playing?
