Generation refers to the Pokémon game series. It is a group of games that were released at or around the same time. It also means that games in the same generation are compatible with the others, containing the same Pokémon and the number of moves there are to be learned.
Generation I (Kanto): Science: The starters of the Kanto region, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle, are all based on animals that existed on Earth thousands of years ago (mammalian reptiles, salamanders, and turtles respectively). Eevee (the Evolution Pokémon) and its first three Evolutions were introduced here. There is a museum in Pewter City where fossil Pokémon may be revived.
Generation II (Johto): Cultural Traditions.
Generation III (Hoenn): The Environment: The teams of the Hoenn Region believe that the environment is in danger and that the awakening of their chosen Legendary Pokémon (Groudon for Team Magma in Ruby, Kyogre for Team Aqua in Sapphire) will save it (by either droughting the sea and expanding the land, or flooding the earth and expanding the ocean respectively). A focus is also placed on the sky as a balancing force between land and sea in the form of Rayquaza, a Pokémon that can stop feuds between Kyogre and Groudon.
Generation IV (Sinnoh): Mythology.
Generation V (Unova): Conflict: Reshiram and Zekrom represent two sides of a conflict that happened many years before the events of Black and White. Kyurem represents neutrality, as well as the remainder of the world when there are two sides to fight on. Furthermore, the fusion of Kyurem with either Zekrom or Reshiram shows these neutral forces joining on one side of a battle to gain a somewhat unfair advantage. The original dragon from whence the Tao Trio came symbolized how easily sentient nature can divide and devolve from peace into conflict.
Generation VI (Kalos): Life, Death and the Ecosystem.
Generation VII (Alola): Day and Night Cycle, Eclipse, Space and exoticism.
Generation VIII (Galar): England and its culture.
Is Pokémon Generations a sequel?
Pokémon Generations is a 2016 Japanese-animated original net animation series produced by OLM and released on YouTube by The Pokémon Company. Similar to the 2013 anime television film, Pokémon Origins, the series consists of several short stories inspired by Nintendo’s Pokémon video game series (from Generations I to VI), as opposed to its main television series. A total of 18 episodes were produced, and were originally released in English on YouTube between September 16, 2016 and December 23, 2016. Japanese episodes have also aired via YouTube.
How to transfer Pokémon from gen 3 and 4?
The method for transferring Pokémon between each generation varied based on the technology required. This included the Nintendo DS’s download play and Game Boy Advance cartridge slot, which eventually gave way to the Nintendo 3DS and its ability to download apps. This eventually led to Pokémon HOME, which gave way to Pokémon Bank.

- Head to Pal Park and speak with the attendant

- Transferring gen-three Pokémon to gen four is a relatively simple process, but it does require access to the post-game content. This means players will need to be using a copy of Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, or SoulSilver that has beaten the Elite Four and champion.
- Using HeartGold or SoulSilver is recommended for any mass migration of Pokemon.

6 Things We Know About ‘Pokémon Generations’
IT WILL NOT FOLLOW THE ORIGINAL SERIES
Pokemon Generations Dragonite and Red Gyarados battle
Like the title suggests, Pokémon Generations will revisit each generation of the video game series. Thus the audience will have a deeper insight into each region, from Kanto to Kalos. During the travels between the regions, you’ll get to know each Pokémon and character better.
EACH EPISODE IS 3 TO 5 MINUTES LONG
While we are used to watching the 20-something minute long episodes, Pokémon Generations will be much shorter. The series will focus much like in the video games on short stories and will not require prior viewing of any other episode to understand. The first two episodes will premiere on September 16 and every week through to December 23, 2016. There will be 18 episodes in total.
AVAILABLE ON THE OFFICIAL POKÉMON YOUTUBE CHANNEL
Pokemon Generations will be available on the Pokemon YouTube channel
With the popularity and success of shows going online, it’s no surprise that Pokémon Generation will do the same. The Pokémon Company will launch the short series on their YouTube channel thereby making it available worldwide.
MORE INTENSE BATTLES
Given that Pokémon Generations is such a short series, it will focus on the battles that gamers had in the video games.
NOT FOR YOUNG KIDS
Though the ’90s series concentrated on the goofy situations that the gang gets itself into, the new anime series will go another route. Because it is a short series, the focus will be on the battles between Pokémon trainers and the enormous amount of power that their Pokémon exhibits. Plus a SWAT team bursting through a wall does not seem all that kid-friendly to me.
THERE’S ALREADY AN ANIME
The hype of Pokémon GO has generated new fans and brought some old ones to the original series. However, a lot of these new viewers or those who have dropped the series (including myself) don’t know that there was already a video game-based anime. The first anime titled Pocket Monsters: The Origin tells the story of the first generation games, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. So, if you’re planning to watch Generations then take a look at Origins.
The ninth generation will begin with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet in late 2022. Generation IX was first revealed via a Pokémon Presents video presentation on February 27, 2022, which revealed Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
It joins the last main entries in the series, Pokémon Sword and Shield, as well as the recently announced Brilliant Diamond and Shinning Pearl. Pokémon Gen 8 is now the second in a row to include at least five games and the fourth generation in the franchise’s history to include five or more games.
Stonjourner is a simple Rock-type Pokemon introduced in Sword and Shield. It has decent Attack and Defense stats, but everything else is mediocre. Stonjourner could have certainly been given better stats and status as a Legendary Pokemon in Generation VIII.
Arceus (Japanese: アルセウス Arceus) is a Normal-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.
