>>There's a limit of two for banded geckos in CA. A few that come in mind with a limit of 25, are desert night lizard, side blotches and certain sceloporous. But, the guideline states a total of 25 in the aggregate. What exactly do they mean with that? Is this a total of individual allowed to posses of a specific species in that list(sideblotch, for example)whether collected or captive breed? Or a total of lizards allowed to posses in that group/list of lizards?

"In the aggregate" means of the species listed, you can have a grand total of 25 specimens mixed-and-matched from the list, i.e. 5 skinks, 17 fence lizards, and 3 side-blotches, or 8 night lizards, 8 side blotches, 9 skinks, etc. It matters not whether they're captive-bred or wild-caught (because fish & game officials can't tell the difference).

This higher limit for certain species is a concession made to snake keepers who collect these common lizards to feed to their lizard-eating snakes...I got this from CA herp keepers who were around when the laws were being written. So basically, it's OK to catch 25 of these lizards, feed them to snakes, go out and catch 25 more, and so on; but heaven forbid you take 2 geckos and breed them (putting you over the limit).
