I just started playing Omega Ruby and it has been years since I've played.
After I catch a pokemon that goes into my pokedex, how to I transfer it into my lineup so I can use it in battles?


You have a couple of options that can happen:

  1. If you have less than 6 Pokemon in your party, any captured Pokemon will automatically be added into your party.

  2. If you have 6 Pokemon in your party, any captured Pokemon will be transferred to your PC. You can access your PC at any Pokemon Center.

If the Pokemon is automatically added to your party, you will need to take them to the Pokemon Center to heal them. Pokemon taken out of the PC are already fully healed

    Note: This is the same behavior as every other main line Pokemon game for the past 20 years. – jpmc26 Sep 29 '15 at 18:46

    @jpmc26 Pokemon games have really been around that long? Geez I feel old – Wondercricket Sep 29 '15 at 19:00
  • I felt exactly the same way when I realized that. – jpmc26 Sep 29 '15 at 19:16

    @jpmc26 Except now you don't have to worry about having a full PC box. There's a little nostalgia nightmare for you Gen 1'ers. – Graph Theory Sep 29 '15 at 20:17

    @jpmc26 technically the first-gen games didn't heal the Pokemon when they were withdrawn from the box though – Spaceman Spiff Sep 29 '15 at 23:50
