Now some of you may asked themselves or not, why is it that in the RSE Pokedex, after Jirachi the list ends with Chimecho.

I mean in all games the list ends with legendary Pokemon, but why Chimecho. It isn't a legendary, is it?

Who knows??

I reckon that's good, it makes Hoenn more unique.

Also, it's pretty damn rare, i got everything possible on Emerald without events or trading (except that island that usually isnt there near pacifidlog), but i only ever saw 1 chimecho

They'll be happier in the wild then with a trainer who doesn't want them. Think about that...

Maybe its a mistake that he's after Jirachi in the pokedex, because he is not a legendary obviously.
Idk xD

I guess, but you know... released Pokémon aren't actually released.

No, it's not a mistake. Actually, a last-minute add I bet. In fact, while the Chimecho data comes after Deoxys, in the Hoenn/National Dex it's displayed in the proper place.

Exactly, We have learned that data for chimecho comes after Deoxies, The national dex was made to order them all correctly.

Because its index number is greater than Jirachi, it was probably just a last-minute pokemon they added in....probably to make the number of GenIII pokemon into a round number. :P

Maybe. Or maybe it's like the church in 4th Gen Hearthome, and lots of other pointless things: they did it coz they could

the reason is that it was added late into game development
and they made it like the number in the anime 358

In the game's coding, Chimecho's INDEX number, not pokedex number, is beyond Jirachi's.

I'm not sure if this was fixed in DPPt or not, does anyone know?

So? RGBY had the numbers not match up at all.

Pokedex Number != Internal Number (!= means not equal to) It's not only jirachi that's out of place when comparing these two numbers; lots of other pokemon are out of order too. It's usually rectified in the next generation though. Compare RBY's internal list to GSC for an extreme example. =p

Chimecho is indeed last internal number wise. To me it's obvious what it means: they added it at the very last second. So we can only consider ourselves lucky that we got chimecho in the 3rd generation instead of the 4th.

Umm...Well,you should know that well...They probably based the Dex on D/P,and added the other Pokemon after.

Maybe Chimecho was a late inclusion, intended to be in the 4th Generation (Chingling wasn't included till 4th Gen)

Agreed with Redstar. Chimecho is not after Jirachi, it's 358 and Jirachi 385. Perhaps you are reversing the numbers.
