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.

  • Hoenn is the only region, as of yet, to contain 2 pseudo-Legendary Pokémon.
  • 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.
