Pokémon at impossible/unobtainable levels


Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

This is a list of Pokémon that are at levels unobtainable to the player that NPC trainers have been seen using, or Pokémon that require external trading to obtain! This doesn't include Pokémon fought in battle facilities!

NPC owned Pokémon at levels unobtainable to the player:

Dragonite: Level 50 (Generations 2-4, evolves at level 55)
Dodrio: Level 28 (Generation 3, lowest obtainable level at 29 from Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, evolves at level 31)
Voltorb: Level 2 (Generation 1-3, lowest obtainable level at 5)
Rhydon: Level 35 (Generation 3, evolves at level 42)
Lairon: Level 27, 29, 31 (Generation 3, evolves at level 32)
Aggron: Level 35 (Generation 3, evolves at level 42)
Magneton: Level 18 (Generation 3, Lowest obtainable level at 26 in Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald, Evolves at level 30)
Weezing: Level 25, 28, 29 (Generation 3, Lowest obtainable level at 32 in FireRed, evolves at level 35)
Rapidash: Level 29 (Generation 3, Lowest obtainable level at 37, evolves at level 40)
Muk: Level 22, 29 (Generation 3, Lowest obtainable level at 32 in LeafGreen, evolves at level 38)
Magcargo: Level 35 (Generation 3, evolves at level 38)

Pokémon at unobtainable levels in certain games, but obtainable in others, and are tradable to those games (Lowest possible obtainable level will be shown):
As a general rule for generations 1-3, MOST Pokémon are unobtainable under level 5 due to eggs hatching at said level!

Electrode: Level 3: (Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, obtainable by receiving In-Game trade Electrode in Red, Blue, FireRed, LeafGreen if a level 3 Raichu was traded)(Evolves at level 30)
Skitty/Delcatty: Level 3 (All of Generation 3, obtainable by in-game trade by trading a Level 3 Pikachu for a Level 3 female Skitty (male Skitty/Delcatties are completely unobtainable under level 5!))
Meowth: Level 3: (All of Generation 3, after doing the above, trade that Level 3 Skitty to Pokémon Emerald, and do an in-game trade for a Level 3 male Meowth! (Female Meowth are completely unobtainable under level 5! Whad'ya know!))
Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff: Level 3: (Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, obtainable in FireRed/LeafGreen)
Mareep: Level 3 (All of Generation 3, could only be obtained if the Altering Cave event was released, allowing for Level 3 Mareep in FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald! Otherwise, Level 5 is as low as Mareep can go!)

Various other Pokémon at unobtainable levels that I have owned:

Generation 3:

Dragonite: Level 30 (Debug)
Bulbasaur: Level 1 (Debug)
Charmander: Level 4 (Debug)
Wartortle: Level 8 (Debug)
Kyogre: Level 5 (Debug)
Unown: Level 0, 21 (Cheating/Debug)(Lowest level obtainable: 25)(Yes, Level 0 is a thing in Generation 3!)
Omanyte: Level 0 (Cheating)
Salamence: Level 50 (Event/Debug)
Metagross: Level 10 (Debug)
Beldum: Level 3 (Cheating)
