Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex: All Pokemon in the new Switch games

We'll be meeting so many new Pokemon will be coming to the Galar region in Pokemon Sword and Shield this November - many of which will be old Pokemon from previous games with a whole new look. There'll also be a whole load of new Gen 8 Pokemon to get to know too. Our upcoming adventure in the world of Pokemon is already shaping up to be one of the most exciting entries in the series, especially because the setting is based on the Great Britain and will include all kinds of inventive Pokemon designs. Here's the complete Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex leak with all the names you can expect to see when the games launch on November 15.

Thanks to the above leak from ResetEra, we know all 400 Pokemon included in the Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex. The three missing spots are Hawlucha, Dhelmise, and a brand new Pokemon called Runerigus.

There's a few notable exclusions and inclusions with this list. First up is that the only other starter family from previous generations are Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard. Their inclusion close to the end of the Pokedex implies they'll be found in the late game at high levels, so kiss goodbye to the hopes of finding a Charmander wandering around Route 1.

Eevee and all of its evolutions have also been included, although it doesn't look like there's any new Eevee-lutions at all. Meowth has a new evolution called Perrserker, as does Corsola in the form of Cursola. Also, Snom is the worst name for a Pokemon I've ever seen.

Finally, it looks like the original 4chan leak from earlier this year was correct about pretty much everything, including the final legendary called Eternatus. Coming in at Pokedex number 400, it's the final Pokemon in the list, and likely to be one of the most powerful Pokemon in the game.

Of course, this doesn't include the Galarian forms, which includes Zigzagoon, Linoone, Weezing, Ponyta, Stunfisk, and more.
