Pokemon Go Search Terms: What They Are and How They Work

The Pokemon Go search terms function is getting better and longer with each update. If you’re looking to keep up to date with the latest Pokemon Go search terms, we have a handy guide waiting for you down below. There’s nothing worse than the panic of finding out your Pokemon box is full right as a rare Pokemon or raid appears, and these search terms will make it easier than ever before to find out what to keep and what to throw away.

The List of Pokemon Go Search Terms

Pokemon Go search terms are specific words and phrases you can type into the Pokemon Go to filter your collection. Most players use this feature to find a specific Pokemon when they need to see stats, or a bunch of common Pokemon like Pidgey and Rattata for batch evolution farming while under the effects of a Lucky Egg. But with a bit of research, this search function is far more handy than it looks.

Other search terms exist, too, like using “+” before a Pokemon name to return all Pokemon from that evolutionary line, or using a “-” between numbers to limit your search to a range within the Pokedex.

We’ve compiled a list of all currently known Pokemon Go search terms:

  • “Name” – Search by official name or nickname
  • “Type” – Search for Pokemon of a specific type
    • “,” – Use between Pokemon Go search terms to perform multiple searches
    • “&” – Use between Pokemon Go search terms to return dual-type Pokemon
  • “@” – Use before a move name to filter Pokemon without that move from the list
  • “+” – Use before a Pokemon name to pull results from that evolution line
  • “numbers” – Use to search for Pokemon by Pokedex number
    • “-” Use between numbers to search for Pokemon between Pokedex numbers
    • “cp” – Use before a number to search for Pokemon by CP value
