Asked in Pokemon Diamond Pearl and Platinum
Is there more than 493 Pokemon in Pokemon diamond?
493 is only how many the pokedex says there are. But Pokemon like shellos there is two types but the pokedex only counts it as one. Arceus evolves into different types if you use a certain type of stone and the pokedex still only counts all those combinations as one.
