Generation IV's general character design appears to be a culmination of the previous generations as this is the generation that revisits older Pokémon and [[BalanceBuff gave them evolutions]] to make them "more viable" or [[SpinOffBabies baby forms]] to make them more marketable. However, that isn't to say that the new Pokémon were overshadowed as monsters such as Lucario and Garchomp cemented themselves in the minds of most fans.

* MinorMajorCharacter: It created ''the entire Pokémon universe'' and the beings that control time, space, the Distortion World, and spirit. And yet, thanks to being a Mythical Pokémon (and one that wasn't officially revealed until after its debut in the Sinnoh games), it's not even a blip on Team Galactic's radar (or, for that matter, anyone else's). To date, Arceus has never had an important role in a core RPG's story.

Shortly after hatching from an egg that had been drifting in the formless cosmos, it created two or three other Pokémon to maintain the physical nature of the universe, and then it created three more to maintain the spiritual nature of life.

Based on a Pachycephalosaurus, this dinosaur Pokémon has an extremely thick skull which it uses to smash things with. If there is a single thing that this Pokémon does well, it's definitely smashing things. Rampardos has the highest attack stat of any non-legendary Pokémon, making it 3rd if you do include legendaries. Unfortunately, it is held back by its speed and defenses, which prevent it from steamrolling everything in its path.

Another hard-headed dinosaur Pokémon, much like Cranidos, it is revived from a fossil. But unlike its counterpart, this Pokémon uses its head for defense. In fact, Bastiodon's crest resembles a castle wall. Its defensive stats are really high, but it comes at the expense of its attack and speed stats. However, its defensive capabilities are hindered by its low HP. It is based on a ceratopian dinosaur.

* DefrostingIceQueen: Buneary's base happiness is ''zero'', an uncommon sight around non-legendaries, and is the only Pokémon capable of naturally learning Frustration.

* ThePowerOfFriendship: Needs to be leveled up with (near) maximum Friendship in order to evolve. This is evident by the fact Lopunny naturally learns Return ''and'' has very high base Friendship. Now, getting it to evolve is difficult, since Buneary has a base Friendship of ''zero'', which is the lowest of any non-legendary Pokémon.

Dragon Pokémon that superficially resemble sharks with limbs, they are found in caves with geothermal heating. Gible looks somewhat silly due to its pudgy appearance, but as it evolves, it gets "sharper" and dangerous-looking. It is the fastest of the Pseudo-legendaries and its stats are in just the right places to make it an extremely powerful threat. As of ''X & Y'', Garchomp has a Mega Evolution with greatly boosted Attack and the Sand Force Ability, in exchange for a slight Speed drop.

The most iconic Pokémon of the Gen IV games, Riolu and Lucario are fighting type Pokémon that possess the unique power of sensing the aura of all living things. Riolu is only able to sense it in ripples and uses it to sense the feelings of others from far away. As it evolves, though, it becomes part Steel and it fully realizes its unique power, gaining the ability to utilize it in the form of powerful attacks. Lucario is notable for being the first non-legendary Pokémon to be the star of its own movie.

The Legendary trio that appears on the boxes of the Sinnoh based games. Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina represent the fundamental laws of the Pokémon universe. Dialga represents time while Palkia represents space. These two Pokémon were apparently created by an "original one", and with them, time began to flow and space began to expand. Giratina is different in that it represents the opposite of these laws, anti-matter so to speak, and it is unknown how it relates to the space-time legend of the Sinnoh region. All three dragons reside in their own "pocket dimensions". At the climax of either Diamond or Pearl, the main legendary (Dialga for Diamond, Palkia for Pearl) is pulled out of their dimension by the BigBad and you must battle it and defeat/capture it. In Platinum, the Player, the Champion, and the Big Bad are brought into Giratina's dimension, where the laws of nature don't apply; it also has a unique forme that it takes when traveling in its dimension.

A Pokémon that has a body made out of molten steel. It inhabits the imposing Stark Mountain, an active volcano on an island off the coast of Sinnoh. Not much is known about it aside from apparently being formed just after the Sinnoh region and magma pooled in the spot that would become Stark Mountain. The fact that it can come in both genders would suggest that there are more than one, but you still only encounter one at the very end of the game's main story.

At the very bottom of the Snowpoint Temple, there is a giant mysterious statue. If you bring three members of a legendary trio from a previous game with you to the statue, it will activate and reveal itself to be Regigigas. Apparently its slumber did a number on it because its ability prevents it from using its full power for several turns, but once those turns are up, it can be a force to be reckoned with.

Manaphy is a Pokémon that can only be found under the most extraordinary of circumstances: reports of a strange jelly egg washes upon a shore in a far off region, but it is unable to be hatched there; it must be transferred to a land far away from its place of its discovery (Read: It's only available by playing a downloadable mission from one of the Pokémon Ranger games and transferring its egg to a Gen IV game). Its egg is unique in that it uses a different sprite from all other Pokémon eggs in-game. Once it hatches, you are now the proud owner of a Mythical Pokémon that has the ability to swap the minds of people around, among other things. But what is most unusual is that it is the only Legendary/Mythical Pokémon released that is able to breed. However, you are not able to get more Manaphy in that fashion; you get the weaker Phione instead. Both Pokémon are based on sea angels, free-swimming sea slugs that are popular with the Japanese for some reason (they think it's cute).

Remember Cresselia? The legendary Pokémon that can grant good dreams and peaceful slumber? This is her opposite. Darkrai exhibits the horrifying power of nightmares. It causes unending nightmares for those around it. However, it is merely a defense mechanism, one it can't shut off, so it hides itself away from others. However, it still beckons to certain individuals. In the same way that Cresselia represents the crescent moon, Darkrai represents the new moon and is most active on the blackest of nights. It can be a powerful ally if befriended.

Here it is. The one mentioned many times in Sinnoh myths as the "original one". If there is a single Pokémon that is the strongest of all, this is probably it. This is Arceus. This Pokémon is somehow responsible for shaping the Sinnoh region and possibly the rest of the Pokémon world. In its normal state, it is a Normal-type with stats of 120 all around, which made it the Pokémon with the highest base stat total (until Mega Evolution and Primal Reversion were introduced). But with the use of special plates (or Z-Crystals) that have been scattered across the world, it can become any one of the 17 other types, depending on which plate it draws its power from. Shortly after hatching from an egg that had been drifting in the formless cosmos, it created two or three other Pokémon to maintain the physical nature of the universe, and then it created three more to maintain the spiritual nature of life. It then drifted off into a deep slumber, but it still awaits for someone in the hall of origin...

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: While Pokémon eggs use a one-size-fits-all design with a white, green-spotted shell, Manaphy has a unique egg graphic that resembles itself. It even has a unique hatching animation in the Generation IV games, where it doesn't crack open like other eggs.



* PermanentlyMissableContent: Par for the course with Mythical Pokémon. While Manaphy can be obtained regardless of time period for Gen IV games if you have ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger'', that's only true if the cartridge is factory new -- once a Manaphy has been redeemed, no more can be obtained even if a new save file is started. Since the game is around a decade old, new copies with Manaphy still in them are naturally hard to come by.
