A list of more than 220 classic Pokémon returning in Scarlet and Violet’s DLC has seemingly leaked

Datalogized list of about 220 Pokémon which will apparently return to Scarlet and Violet as part of its upcoming DLC, has been released online.

Monday’s episode of Pokémon Presents revealed this The upcoming two-part expansion, The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, reintroduces older Pokémon that are currently not found in the Paldean region. These include Milotic, Nintetails, Shiftry, Metagross, Seel, and Alcremie.

Now Pokémon Data Miner @mattyoukhana_ has stated that the recently released version 1.2.0 for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has removed a bunch of hidden Pokédex entries for Pokémon that aren’t currently in the game.

Although this doesn’t immediately seem to mean anything, mattyoukhana_ pointed out that this also happened with the version 1.2.0 update Pokémon Sword and Shieldand that when it did “every single one of the deleted entries made it into the DLC”.

As such, using the newly mined Scarlet and Violet data, they’ve put together a complete list of classic Pokemon returning for DLC.

There are 223 Pokémon on the list, which is still far less than the more than 530 Pokémon currently not included in the game.

While it’s unlikely that every Pokémon will return, the list is still missing some notable items that could indicate it’s incomplete. For example, it contains almost no Legendary Pokemon, which suggests either that Legendary Pokemon are obtained in a unique way, or that they are not included at all (which is less likely).
