Baby Pokémon are Pokémon at the lowest stage of Pokémon Evolution that cannot themselves breed. The concept was introduced in Generation II, along with breeding. Specifically, baby Pokémon can be classified by the following criteria:

  • Must be obtainable by breeding
  • Must be the lowest form in a family chain and must be able to evolve at least once
  • Must belong to the Undiscovered Egg Group

The only baby Pokémon introduced alongside their evolved form are Togepi, Riolu, and Toxel; the rest were introduced in generations after their evolved form was. Many baby Pokémon require maximized friendship to evolve.


A list of baby Pokemon is available here.

Hope I helped!
