Pokémon Wiki

Three-stage Pokémon are Pokémon consisting of three stages and have two evolutions from their unevolved form. All Starter Pokémon used in the mainline games are part of a three-stage evolution with the exception of Eevee. All Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon also follow this trend.

Most Pokémon families have become three-stage lines through added evolutions or pre-evolutions introduced in later generations, one example being a Pokémon such as Roselia who was previously not part of an evolution line until the introduction of Budew and Roserade in Generation IV, now making Roselia a three-stage Pokémon starting with Budew.

  • Generation I currently has the most amount of three-stage evolution lines, with 16.
    • It also had the most three-stage evolution lines upon the generation's debut, with 16.
  • Generation IV currently has the least amount of three-stage evolution lines, with 6.
    • It is also tied with Generation II for the least three-stage lines upon debut, both having 6 as well.
  • Starting in Generation V, currently no Pokémon have gained an evolution or pre-evolution to make them into a three-stage evolution line.
  • The most common type among three-stage evolution lines is the Grass type, being present in 16 different lines.
    • In contrast to this, the Ice type is the least common, only appearing in 4 different lines.
  • As of Generation VIII, Mime Jr. is the only non-regional form Pokémon to be part of both a two-stage and three-stage evolution line. This occurs as a Mime Jr. caught in Galar can evolve into a Galarian Mr. Mime which then evolves into Mr. Rime. Otherwise it will evolve into the Kantonian Mr. Mime which is a fully evolved Pokemon.
