Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex – every Pokemon location in the new games

The Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex is massive. While it may not contain every single Pokemon that's been introduced to the series since 1996, it does 400 pocket monsters to catch, train, and send into battle. Honestly, if you treat this like a Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex checklist you'll find that you have plenty to keep yourself busy. 

You'll need to explore all corners of the Pokemon Sword and Shield Galar Region if you want to catch 'em all. That's why we have put together this handy Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex to not only give you insight into the party members you should expect to find on your adventure but the locations as to where you can find them too. Remember, weather conditions can impact spawn chances, so you'll want to keep that in mind before you start wandering the Wild Areas. Anyway, keep scrolling for the full Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex – happy hunting. 

Note: Overworld refers to Pokemon that you can see before encountering them, while Non-Overworld is just for Pokemon that appear as exclamation marks in the tall grass.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
