Pokemon Sword and Shield Leaks

Pokemon Sword and Shield are the upcoming Nintendo Switch full-fledged versions of the Pokemon game. We're taking a look at some of the Sword and Shield leaks that have come out ahead of time! There's leaks for the Pokedex, evolutions, how many Pokemon there are going to be initially, and a lot more!

The game is now live and we have a bunch of content for you to check out:

Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex Leak

A huge batch of leaks has now been posted all over the net. I've sourced a lot from the Sword & Shield Leaks Subreddit. The first thing we're going to look at is a chart of images that display a lot of the evolution images of a majority of the new Pokemon coming to the game (click to enlarge):

The second one appears to be the full list of Pokemon that will be making an appearance in the game. If you were unaware, there was quite a bit of controversy about these games because the full National Dex won't be available in the game. We have been unaware of which Pokemon will make the list, and this seems to display a lot of what has made the cut so far. We aren't positive that this is the entire list or not.

Some of the big ones you'll be surprised didn't make the cut are Bulbasaur and Squirtle lines. They are the original three starters from the first games, so it's quite a shock not to see them added to the list. If you're a fan of Charmander though, you're in luck because that trio is in the game!

If the new Pokemon appear in the National Dex and are in the same order as the Galar Dex they will show up as the following numbers:

  • Grookey #810

Nature Mints

Not happy with the Nature of your Pokemon? Well, you'll now be able to buy Mints that will allow you to pick the nature of it! These will be purchased using Battle Points, and it has been rumored that the Pokemon will not need to be level 100 to do it.

Cinderace Stats & Moves

Inteleon Stats & Moves

Rillaboom Stats & Moves

Fossil Pokemon

Here's a look at the Fossil Pokemon you'll be able to collect in the game. You will apparently be able to combine the fossils together to create a single Pokemon. Here's the information directly from the game:

Fossils in Galar are broken into top halves and bottom halves for some reason, huh.

Strangely, no matter which top and bottom you combine, they can be restored together.

Additional Leaks

Here's a look at the options screen if that's interesting to you:

Slumbering Weald

This is a leaked screenshot of the Slumbering Weald area that we will be able to explore in the game. It is supposedly a forest area next to the starting town that will have some new Pokemon to collect!

Galar Full Map

Leader Names

There's eight leaders reportedly in total, here's a list of their names and what Pokemon type they use:

  • Milo: Grass Leader
  • Nessa: Water Leader
  • Kabu: Fire Leader
  • Allister (Shield): Ghost Leader
  • Bea (Sword): Fighting Leader
  • Opal: Fairy Leader
  • Melony (Shield): Ice Leader
  • Gordie (Sword): Rock Leader
  • Piers: Dark Leader
  • Raihan: Dragon Leader

Old General Info Leak

This was one of the major early leaks for the games that turned out to be true.

Your rival is named Hop, but you will also be facing of against Bede and Marnie

Team Yell is the gang in this game, who are well meaning fans of Marnie causing trouble

To become part of the gym challenge, you will have to get an endorsement. Bede gets an endorsement from Chairman Rose and his secretary Oleana

Eternatus is the evil legendary. The other legendary will be a wolf, who will either have a shield mane or hold a sword like Great Wolf Sif. Don't recall its name

Dynamaxing and Gigantamaxing are new dynamics that will supersize pokemon in specific areas. Gigantamaxing is different from dynamax as it changes what the pokemon looks like. Meowth looks like long cat. Lapras gets layers like musical bars to its shell and musical notes. Pikachu looks like retro fat pikachu

Sonia is Leon's former rival who is researching the dynamax phenomenon at the behest of her grandmother and professor of the game.

Some pokemon, like Farfechtd, will get regional evolutions, like Sirfechtd. Meowth looks like a ball of spiky grey fur

Skwovet and Greedunt iirc are chipmunk pokemon who will hide in berry trees and attack randomly if you shake for too many berries. If they attack, you lose half the berries that dropped.

The fourth gym is the first Fairy type gym, led by an actress named Opal. Milo, Nessa, and Kabu are the first ones.

Before fighting the gym leaders, you have to complete the gym challenges. - Milo has you herding sheep pokemon named Wooloo, but Pamper, electric corgi pokemon, will startle them and send them rolling elsewhere. - Nessa has you running through a maze where water blocks the way - Kabu requires you to catch pokemon and get 5 points, but you have to be in a party battle with another trainer who's also trying to catch it

While there is a transit system, you will have to go through the Wild Area at times, an open world biome that has a weather system and little pockets where wild pokemon dynamax and have to be beaten in a for person raid. You will randomly see nearby players and interact with them to get their league cards and items

Camping is how you play with pokemon now. You'll get two toys, a feather toy and toy pokeball, which can raise friendship. You can make curry which will raise starts and friendliness

Pokémon will not walk beside you in the overworld map

Scorbunny will have fighting moves, but is pure fighter. It becomes Raboot, but I don't remember the final evolution, except that it looks like a fighter. It looks humanoid

Sobble becomes Sizzile and then Intelleon, a chameleon with a spy theme

Grookey will end up as a giant gorilla that beats a wood drum to attack.

There's a lot I'm missing, but I wasn't planning on leaking until now. I'm angry and upset, and while I liked what I saw, I didn't get too far.

The best Pokémon so far is the blue seagull who when it dives, either gets a barracuda in its mouth or a pikachu, which it launches at its enemy

  1. This lineup is RIDICULOUS!!! There is one Pokemon they should’ve included: Varion. The Soldier Pokemon. Varion was made from synthetic tissue technology and shapeshifting metal. Varion has 3 other forms: Saber Varion the sword warrior, Ace Varion the heavy-range gun warrior that specializes in aerial combat, and Max Varion the fistfighting shield warrior that specializes in naval battle. Varion evolves into Victorion the Space Pokemon, who in turn evolves into Galaxion the Light Pokemon.

  2. Missing the Sword exclusive Gym leaders – Bea: Fighting Gym Leader & Gordie: Rock Gym Leader, instead of Allister and Meloney

    1. The Pokedex is fake, it says that in the post. The first leak is potentially real, it mentioned Wooloo: “Milo has you herding sheep pokemon named Wooloo”.

    2. None of the revealed 7 pokemon are in this list. 100% fake. Plus Meltan and Melmetal are officially gen 7; not gen – because they appear before the starters:Remember all generations start with their starters and their evolutions first; then the rest of the pokemon from that region follow.

      1. Not all generations start with the starters because victini is a mythical pokemon from the univa region and its before snivy. So please don’t make facts that aren’t 100 percent true and meltan and melmetal are gen 7 pokemon yes from the time the pokemon was released but it has only been in let’s go pikachu and eevee and honestly how do we not know if it is going to be first in the galar region pokedex. We don’t have a full legal pokedex confirmed yet so please just have an idea that some of these might be true or or not.
