A new Pokemon Direct event is scheduled for June 5, but before that happens, it appears there may have been a substantial Pokemon Sword and Shield leak.
Someone has posted what is reportedly the full list of Generation 8 Pokemon coming to Sword and Shield in 2019, although some fans are not convinced it’s the real deal.
As always, gamers will need to take this latest Pokedex leak with a pinch of salt until it is confirmed at E3 2019.
From what has been shared online today, Pokemon Sword and Shield will add another 133 Pokedex entries to the base franchise.
The new Pokedex will reportedly run up to #941, without including special regional types, with only four Pokemon officially confirmed for the new Nintendo Switch game at this time.
For now, we know that Pokemon Sword and Shield will feature Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble as the traditional starter Pokemon.
But going over the leaked Pokedex being shared online, there’s no doubt that Dynamighty, the explosion Pokemon, has everything needed to be a highlight of the game.
There isn’t enough information from this leak to make it seem any more plausible than others that have been proven false.
And it just so happens that another Sword and Shield Pokemon list has been circulating, offering different information.
Another post online, this time predicting a Pokemon Trailer before E3, has shared a different list.
This one features the Pokemon Sword and Shield Galar forms that will be included in the new Nintendo Switch game.
These regional forms would function in the same way as in Sun and Moon, with 17 Galarian Forms reported.
According to the second leaker, there will only be Johto and Hoenn-Pokemon included and nothing from Sinnoh.
The list includes:
- Octowl: Ice/Flying (Becomes black, with bits of dark blue.)
- Sentret: Normal/Ground (Now has steel-claws)
- Furret: Normal/Ground (Has a drill on its tail)
- Spinarak: Bug/Ghost (is now black, but the smiley on it’s black is a bright pink)
- Ariados: Bug/Ghost (Same as Spinerak. Now has a spooky angry-face on it’s back.)
- Jumpluff: Grass/Fairy (Body becomes white, pom-pom-things turn pink)
- Sudowoodo: Steel (Now disguised as a pinetree)
- Houndour: Dark/Ice (“skull” on its head is now made out of ice)
- Houndoom: Dark/Ice (Horns and bone-parts are now Icicles)
- Magcargo: Fire/Water (Has now a seashell as it’s house)
- Ralts: Dark/Fairy (Green “Helmet” turns dark blue and the dress-part becomes purple)
- Kirlia: Dark/Fairy (Same as Ralts, but it’s legs stay white)
- Gardevoir: Dark/Fairy (The same as previous, looks a bit like it’s Mega)
- Zangoose: Fighting/Dark (White fur becomes black, has sharper claws)
- Seviper: Poison/Steel (Has a giant iron spike-ball instead of it’s Knife-tail)
- Spoink: Poison (Tail is made of purple sludge and it’s crystal is dark purple)
- Grumpig: Poison/Ghost (same with spoink, but it’s pink parts become dark green)
This second leak is a little more believable as it provided the prediction on a new trailer being shown before E3 2019.
But as always, we won’t know for sure until Nintendo decides they want to share it with us.
The good news is that a new Pokemon Direct is being held this week and could offer us some answers.
The Wednesday, June 5, Pokemon Direct will begin at 2pm in the UK and will only run for 15 minutes.
But all that time dedicated to one title means that the full release date could be announced on the same day.
And if it isn’t, Pokemon fans won’t have to wait long to find out the final news surrounding Sword and Shield.
We already know that Sword and Shield will feature new Gen 8 Pokemon and will feature a region based on the British Isles.
And then next week the Nintendo Direct E3 2019 live stream will begin at 18.00 CEST on June 11, proving more news on upcoming Switch games.
