Differences with the official games (2024)

in versions 4.9 and below, the game mechanics are based on Generation 5, mostly BW2. This includes movepools, stats, various in/out of combat mechanics and type weaknesses/resistances. The Fairy type was added and behaves the same as in the modern games.

In version 5.0 and above, the game was updated to use Generation 7 movesets.Battle mechanics are still mostly from Generation 5 (besides moves, abilities, and items introduced later, which behave as they did in the earliest generation they were available); however move numbers (power,accuracy,pp,effect chance) are taken from their Generation 7 values.

Evolutions methods[]

Several Pokémon have different evolution methods than in the official games. These mostly include Pokémon that normally evolve via trading and Pokémon that normally evolve via happiness/friendship. Here, trade evolution items can be used on Pokémon like evolution stones.

Moves[]

A few moves in Pokémon Infinite Fusion have altered from main series games.

Teleport[]

When used outside of battle, instead of returning the player to the last Pokemon Center, it acts like Fly by letting the player fast travel to ANY previously visited Pokemon Center. This requires the third badge and only works outside.

One-Hit KO moves[]

The One-Hit KO moves (Fissure, Horn Drill, Guillotine, Sheer Cold) do not have their accuracy affected by the ability No Guard.

Hidden Power[]

Calculations[]

The type and power of a Pokémon's Hidden Power move are calculated the same way as in the official generation 5 games, however due to the addition of several triple types used for Triple Fusions, the game has 26 possible types rather than 16 which changes the result of the calculation. The triple types will damage all types with normal effectiveness.

For more information on the calculations see Hidden Power (move)/Calculation on Bulbapedia.

Changing a Pokémon's Hidden Power Type[]

As of version 4.5.6, completing the Ruins of Alph puzzle unlocks a secret room where you can change a Pokémon's Hidden Power type.

HMs[]

Every HM from the Kanto games exist in the game, but three additional ones have also been added. The location of some of them are also different from the base games.

Unlike in the official games, HMs can be forgotten at any time in Pokémon Infinite Fusion. There are also some items that act as HM replacements.

TM94 - Rock Smash[]

Rock Smash has been added. It remains a TM, but it can be used in the field and works the same as in the Gen 2 + games. It is given to the player by Brock outside of Mt. Moon.

HM05 - Waterfall[]

Waterfall can be used to climb up waterfalls like in the gen 2+ games. It is obtained by talking with Professor Elm (post game).

HM06 - Dive[]

Dive can be used to dive down in deeper water to access secret areas.

HM07 - Teleport[]

Teleport is added as an alternative to Fly. It allows you to fast-travel to any previously visited city. It is obtained after defeating the third gym in Vermilion City.

HM10 - Rock Climb[]

Rock Climb can be used to climb ledges that you normally can only jump down.

*HM09 - Bounce was remove and just obtained through the Golbat boots

Gen 3-7 Pokémon[]

There are many Pokémon included in the game from later generations. However, since not all Pokémon from generations 3 through 7 are available in the game, these Pokémon have different Pokédex numbers.

See Pokédex for the full list.

Abilities[]

Ability Order Switched[]

The evolutionary lines of Pidgey, Ekans, Diglett, Growlithe, Machop, Geodude, Farfetch'd, Onix, Krabby, Voltorb, Cubone, Hitmonchan (but not its family) Lapras, Snorlax, Aerodactyl, Chinchou, Marill, Dunsparce, Murkrow, Snubbull, Teddiursa, Absol, and Clefairy have their first and second abilities switched, for balance or other reasons (Tangled Feet makes more sense on a fusion with Pidgey's body than its head, for example).

Pokemon with different Abilities than Main Series games[]

Some Pokemon's abilities do not match their main series counterparts:

  • Gengar has Levitate instead of Cursed Body
  • Delbird has Snow Warning as its Hidden Ability
  • Regigigas has Mold Breaker as its Hidden Ability
  • Zapdos has Lightning Rod instead of Static for its Hidden Ability
  • Raikou has Volt Absorb instead of Inner Focus for its Hidden Ability
  • Suicune has Water Absorb instead of Inner Focus for its Hidden Ability

  • Chandelure line has Shadow Tag instead of Infiltrator for its Hidden Ability
  • Wigglytuff line doesn’t have Competitive
  • Milotic doesn’t have Competitive
  • Feebas doesn’t have Oblivious
  • Ferrothorn doesn’t have Anticipation
  • Unown has Mummy as its Hidden Ability
  • Koffing line has Stench as its Hidden Ability
  • Flygon has Dry Skin as Hidden Ability
  • Talonflame has Big Pecks instead of Flame Body for its Primary Ability
  • Mewtwo has Immunity instead of Unnerve for its Hidden Ability
  • Darkrai has White Smoke as its Hidden Ability
  • Kyurem has Ice Body as its Hidden Ability
  • Zekrom has Volt Absorb as its Hidden Ability
  • Reshiram has Flare Boost as its Hidden Ability
  • Hydreigon has Hustle as its Hidden Ability
  • Genesect has Motor Drive as its Hidden Ability

Prior to version 6.1.4, Lycanroc Midnight did not have its hidden ability. This has since been patched.

Pickup[]

The ability pickup works the same as it would in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
See Pickup on Bulbapedia for the list of items.

Some Pokémon have had their primary and secondary types swapped.
