I had no idea how much information to give for this puzzle, so I decided to start with none! I'll add hints if enough time passes / people are looking for direction.

  • $\begingroup$ @Taco タコス might wanna update the interactive grid you made, a few of the images are broken $\endgroup$ Dec 18, 2021 at 7:58
  • $\begingroup$ @Quark-epoch unfortunately, those have been broken for a while; it's an issue with the API they're loaded from. $\endgroup$ Dec 18, 2021 at 21:53
  • $\begingroup$ @Tacoタコス oh, that's a pity, its great nevertheless. :) $\endgroup$ Dec 19, 2021 at 5:02

Currently identifying every pokemon in the grid for all our puzzling friends who haven't memorized all the names, because there are a bunch listed here:

  • What region they originate in
  • What game they were introduced in
  • What their Pokedex number is
  • What their name starts with
  • Whether they are a first, second, or third evolution (or something more complicated than that)
  • Whether they can Mega Evolve
  • Whether they have a special Dynamax form
  • Catch rarity
  • Egg group

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the big table! Also, you forgot to mention the arguably most important thing about Pokemon: "What type(s) they are" $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ No worries. Granted, I only played up to Gen 3 or 4 I think, where the types are the unique thing. Most of the other categorizations you mention I am not familiar with, haha $\endgroup$
