Completing a Pokedex is one of those legendary achievements that should be on every Trainers’ bucket list. Some Pokedexes are much harder to finish than others, but the Kitakami Dex is easier than most. Still, there are always a few entries you can’t get by catching wild Pokemon and leveling them up. This guide is all about those and demystifying those elusive Dex entries. Here’s how to complete the Kitakami Pokedex in the Scarlet and Violet DLC.
How to complete the Kitakami Pokedex in Scarlet and Violet DLC
If you just need the complete Kitakami Pokedex, you can check that out here. In this guide, I’ll explain how to get every Pokemon you can’t find in the wild or get by leveling up. Everything else is catchable across Kitakami and evolves through leveling without items or special requirements, like Trading. For ease of use, these are in Kitakami Dex order, along with their Dex numbers.
Yanma will evolve into Yanmega if it levels up while it knows Ancient Power. We have a complete guide on this one covering everything you need to know.

#196 Bloodmoon Ursaluna
You can’t find Bloodmoon Ursaluna in the wild. Instead, you must have 150 Pokemon registered in your Kitakami Pokedex. This will trigger a side quest with Perrin that will end with a showdown against Bloodmoon Ursaluna.
The Loyal Three and Ogerpon are all tied to the story, so you will get your chance to catch these as you naturally progress through the game.
Besides regular leveling and wild hunting, this is how to get every Pokemon in the Kitakami Pokedex. Some are harder than others, and a few require trading with a friend. Tera Raids are always worth a look, as some unusual Pokemon, like Milotic, can be obtained from them. You have all the information to complete your Pokedex, and if this is your first, I wish you the very best of luck.
