I have 11 Pokémon, none duplicate. But the count at the top shows 12.

Is this a bug, or does it count the Pokémon in the egg, too?

    this is 100% the egg. Ive watched this count change as Ive picked up and hatched eggs. – user106385 Jul 10 '16 at 13:11

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of area/region do you live in that you found Pinsir, Ponyta, Growlithe, Chansey, and Sandshrew? – kcborys Jul 10 '16 at 17:52
  • @Captain I literally live behind a zoo/animal park separated by a 500m forest area :). – Shaunak D Jul 10 '16 at 18:00

'Total Pokémon' is a count of all currently held pokémon and eggs

In the example you give, you are currently holding 11 pokémon, and 1 egg. The given pokémon count is 12.

This is likely in order to prevent bugs related to issues that would otherwise arise when you have a full box of 250 pokémon, and could proceed to hatch more, through eggs.

It is worth addressing that this is a total held pokémon count, not a count of unique pokémon. If you did have duplicates in your box, they would also contribute to your final count.

  • I initally thought I transferred a pokémon accidentally to the Professor, but I was wrong. Transferring pokémons the the Prof. reduces the count. You are right with the egg being counted. – Shaunak D Jul 10 '16 at 14:46

It's the eggs for sure. I currently have 66 Pokemon and 8 eggs but my count at the top of the screen says 74/250. It definitely counts your eggs.
