Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon

All Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon evolution lines from Kanto to Galar.

Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon, also called Late Bloomers, is a fan term for a group of powerful Pokémon that are not officially classified as a Legendary Pokémon. All Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon are the final form of a three-stage evolution line, have a base stat total of 600 and require 1,250,000 experience points to reach level 100.
