Baby Pokémon

What’s a Baby Pokémon? It’s any Pokémon that can only be obtained through hatching an Egg. These Pokémon are not catchable, nor found in the wild. All baby Pokémon evolve, these ‘adult’ Pokémon do spawn in the wild. In the Main Series of Pokémon, as of Generation VII, there are 18 Baby Pokémon. Currently, 17 of these Babies are available in Pokémon Go. Below is a list of all the Baby Pokémon and their evolutions:

Second Charge Moves

Although a whole Pokémon family typically requires the same Stardust and Candy to acquire the one exception is Baby Pokémon. Some Baby Pokémon require fewer resources to add a second Charge Move. If you are thinking about a second move on your Lucario, it would be wise to add it while it is still a Riolu.


Pokemon GO PhionePhione

What about Phione? Isn’t it a Baby Pokémon? The short answer is NO. The long answer goes back to the full definition of a Baby Pokémon in the Main Sequence Games. The four rules are:

  • Must be obtained through breeding
  • Must be the lowest form of a Pokémon family
  • Must be able to evolve, at least once, into another family member
  • Must NOT be able to breed itself

Phione abides by Rules 1 and 2; but not 3 or 4. While breeding a Manaphy produces a Phione, Phione is never able to evolve.
