Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon are a group of powerful Pokémon with a base stat total of 600, who aren't actually classified as "Legendary" because they can...

They are also part of a 3-stage Evolutionary line and have 2-types by their third evolution. They also have an exact base stat-total of 600.

Semi-pseudo is a term used to describe a Pokémon who is often mistaken for a pseudo-Legendary, but fail to meet the criteria to be a pseudo-legendary. The most notable example of this lies in the fact that all the semi-pseudos have a base stat total that does not equal 600, so they cannot be considered pseudo-legendary by definition. Pseudo-legendary Pokémon are usually uncommon/rare.

  • Four of the six pseudos are Dragon-type.
  • All of the pseudo-legendary Pokémon have an immunity.
  • The Johto Region is the only region without a Dragon-type Pseudo.
  • Hoenn is the only region, as of yet, to contain 2 pseudo-Legendary Pokémon.
    • Coincidentally, they are usually found in hard-to-find places. For example: Bagon (Salamence's basic stage) can only be found at the back of Meteor Falls Cave with the use of Surf and Waterfall. Meaning that you'd need eight Gym Badges to even think about going there. And Metagross can only be obtained after the player defeats the Elite Four and Steven, the player must then go to Steven's house, the player then recives a Beldum
  • Metagross is the only Steel/Psychic-type pseudo-Legendary.
  • Lucario and Zoroark are mistaken as pseudo-Legendaries because of the way in which they are to be obtained.
  • Tyranitar and Metagross are the only pseudos that cannot learn dragon-type moves by leveling up.
    • However, Metagross is the only pseudo that cannot learn a dragon-type move at all.
