Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex: All New Pokemon in Sword and Shield, Gen 1-7 Pokedex

As we hear more about Pokemon Sword and Shield we’ll be adding all confirmed Pokemon to this Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokemon List Guide.

Pokemon Sword and Shield is coming to Nintendo Switch very soon indeed. When it arrives, it won’t feature all 8 generations of Pokemon, and will instead pick and choose from various points in the series. It is useful then, if we put together one page collecting all of the Pokemon confirmed so far for Pokemon Sword and Shield. In this Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokemon List Guide we’ll do just that, and we’ll be updating it as we hear more.
