With new Pokémon DLC comes both new and old Pokémon. Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: The Teal Mask brings back 94 previous Pokémon from across all eight earlier generations, some of which haven’t been available in a mainline Pokémon game for quite some time. This number goes up to 102 when considering regional variants that will naturally be transferrable alongside their original counterparts. Below is a list of all the older Pokémon making a comeback.
