Pseudo-legendary Pokemons have powers that are significantly more powerful than regular pokemon. Here are all the Pseudo-Legendary Pokemon

Pokemon: Pseudo-Legendary

The term Pseudo-legendary is coined by the community which means that these pokemon have higher base stats compared to regular Pokemon. Each of these Pseudo Legendaries has a total base stat of 600 before their Mega Evolutions. Additionally, these pseudo-legendaries have 3 evolution forms and some have mega evolutions.


  • The very first pseudo-legendary is Dragonite, a Dragon and also a Flying Pokemon. Moreover, Dragonite was first introduced in Generation I. Its base evolution is Dratini which evolves into Dragonair and finally to Dragonite. In the anime series, Ash was also able to catch a newly evolved Dragonite in the episode A Test in Paradise.

The pseudo-legendary has also appeared in the movie Titled Celebi: a Timeless Encounter.
