Compass brings in 113 total Pokémon (141 if you count all the other forms~) and makes it possible to get a complete Pokédex and all of the HOME Pokémon as well.
Spawn points and spawn weightings have been adjusted so that the newly added Pokémon are more rare and appear in few general locations, to avoid overcrowding certain areas or causing vanilla Pokémon to become more difficult to find than expected.
Entries for all of the added Pokémon were added, with the exceptions of the Hisuian Pokémon (which did not have any associated data).
When catching a Compass-added Pokémon, the Pokédex will appear as it does with any other Pokémon, including all available data, and provide the player with the options for summary or placement, per normal. This also results in the game storing the data in the save file, including seen / caught information, allowing the in-battle “helper” to function normally.
There are, however, some minor issues with the base game’s implementation of the Pokédex; see Pokédex Issues for more details. None of the issues are game-breaking.
No Version Exclusives
All Pokémon that were restricted to one version of the game or the other have been added into Compass. They utilize the same spawn data as from the version they are exclusive to, so they’ll show up where they normally would, as though you were playing co-op with someone from another game version.
|From Scarlet||From Violet|
|Blaze Breed Tauros||Drifloon||Drifblim||Aqua Breed Tauros||Gulpin||Swalot|
|Great Tusk||Scream Tail||Brute Bonnet||Iron Treads||Iron Bundle||Iron Hands|
|Flutter Mane||Slither Wing||Sandy Shocks||Iron Jugulis||Iron Moth||Iron Thorns|
|Roaring Moon||Iron Valiant|
Some of these Pokémon cannot be caught in the wild, such as Tyranitar and Salamence, but their earlier evolutions can be. Many of these are also added to the raids (see New and Changed Raids for the lists).
There are some Pokémon that are not added into the wild, but are available through means added into Compass :
|From Scarlet||From Scarlet||From Violet||From Violet|
|Acquisition||Delibird Shop||7★ Raids||Delibird Shop||7★ Raids|
The items necessary to evolve Charcadet are found in the Delibird Shop (see Delibird Presents — New Items for details).

Alternate Forms Not Added
Many mythicals and legendaries have alternate forms that are available in-game yet are not made directly available in Compass, but the knowledge of how to get them is not well-known — basically, it all comes down to Porto Marinada’s “special” auction.
Many items used to form change or as unique held items are available upon obtaining the requisite Pokémon, so after catching one that has a form you would like to change them to (e.g. Hoopa Confined to Hoopa Unbound), check out the auction area to see if you can pick up the necessary item.You can also pick up the typed Plates here to change Arceus’ type — or you can farm these by catching the appropriate typed Eevee in the special 4★ event raids (see New Special Raids).
The Ruinous Quartet have had their general level and stats increased, and can be caught again in special 6★ event raids. They are not added into the world in any other manner.
The two iguana legendaries are available to be caught time and time again, in special 7★ event raids. They will not be added into the world in any other manner for now.
