Notes

  • Once you have released a Pokemon you cannot ever get it back. Be absolutely sure that you wish to send a Pokemon away before carrying this action out.
  • Releasing Pokemon is good when your storage box is full and you want to capture or breed more Pokemon. Keep in mind that there are a maximum of 32 storage boxes available, as more boxes will open up once the initial 8 boxes each contain Pokemon.
