Pokémon familiesEdit

Main article: List of Pokémon families

Each Pokémon is a member of a Pokémon family (also known as evolutionary line). It is basically a group of Pokémon that are related with each other as one of such Pokémon evolve into or from another.

Pokémon evolution families can range between a single to three-stage evolutions, but there can also be more than three members within a family, as some of Pokémon families might be branched.

TriviaEdit

  • On the official support page for the Pokémon GO, Deepsea Scale and Deepsea Tooth are mentioned.[1]
  • It's also stated that Feebas is required to be walked a minimum of 20 km as Buddy Pokémon, before it was released to the gameplay.[1]
