Search Operators

Operator Function
Can be used to search for a range of values, such as HP, CP and Pokédex number. “152-251”, for example, will return all second generation Pokémon. “hp-100” will return all Pokémon with a max HP value of 100 or less. “cp2000-” will return all Pokémon with a CP value of at least 2000.
! Works as a “not” operator. Will return all Pokémon that do not meet the given search term. For instance, “!shiny” will return all non-shiny Pokémon.
& | Works as an “and” operator. You can combine multiple search terms together using ampersands (“&”) or vertical bars (“|”). This symbol returning results that match both terms. For instance, “@water&1-151&cp2000-” will return only water Pokémon from Generation 1 with a CP value of 2000 or above.
+ When searching for a Pokémon by species name or nickname, will return all Pokémon within the evolutionary line. For instance, “+dragonair” will return all Dratinees, Dragonairs and Dragonites. Does not work with other search queries such as Pokédex number or type. Requires that you have at least one Pokémon that returns from the base query (searching for “+dragonair” will return nothing if you do not have any Dragonairs).
, : ; Works as an “or” operator. You can combine multiple search terms together using commas (“,”), colons (“:”) and semicolons (“;”). This symbol returns results that match any term. For instance, “pikachu,raichu” will return both Pikachus and Raichus.

Search Behaviors

  • Searches are not case sensitive. For example, “bob” will return the same results as “BoB”. Spaces are also ignored, so “cp100” will return the same results as “cp 100”.
  • Searches work for partial strings. For instance, “Pik” will return Pikachu. However, searches only look at the beginning of a name, so “slash” will not return Sandslash.
  • Some Pokémon nicknames will not return in search results. Nicknames that start with numerals do not show up in searches that only contain numerals. For instance, a Pikachu named “100iv” will not show up in a search for “100” but will show up in a search for “100i”. Furthermore, a Pokémon nicknamed “585858” will not show up for a search for “585858”. A Mewtwo nicknamed “-5” will show up for a search for “-” but not for “-5”, which will only display Pokémon with Pokédex numbers 5 or lower.
  • Searches remain open when you click on one of the results and exit back out. The searches will update if you made changes to the Pokémon, for instance by evolving it or changing its name. For instance, if you search for “evolve” then evolve your Pikachu into a Raichu, that Raichu will not show up in the existing search.
