The Pokédex Rewards are a set of rewards given every time a milestone is reached for having collected a number of Pokémon entries or “volumes”. It works similarly to battle pass rewards in most recent games. These rewards can be very helpful in completing the entire Pokédex itself, which in turn would make getting the rest of the rewards much faster.
In this guide, we will look through all the rewards that can be obtained from completing the Pokédex.
How to get the Pokédex Rewards
To get the Pokédex rewards, you must first reach the milestone for each of them. Every time you capture or own (through hatching or trading) a Pokémon for the first time, it adds an entry or a volume on the Pokédex which is stylized to look like a shelf of books. Every 10 volumes that you collect, you will reach a milestone for your rewards, up until you collect all the 400 Pokémon* of the Paldean Regional Dex. This includes all the version exclusives from both games.
To collect these Pokédex rewards, simply access the Pokédex (Y button > X button > select Pokédex), then press the X button to show the rewards bar. You will then automatically get the rewards every time a milestone is reached. You can also see your progress and how many volumes you will need to collect in order to reach the next reward. Upon completing the Pokédex, you’ll then get a ribbon on the dex as a visual reward.
*Although obtainable in the current game, Pokémon like Wooper, Quagsire, Galarian Meowth, Perrserker, and Charizard are not included in the count.
**As of this writing, there’s no info yet if there will be additional rewards once the Home transfer compatibility gets implemented in a future update.
