A new Pokemon Direct event is scheduled for June 5, but before that happens, it appears there may have been substantial Pokemon Sword and Shield leaks.
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 new game.
However, while there are some cracking names listed, 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 different information.
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.
This second leak is a little more believable as it also predicted a new trailer being shown before E3 2019.
But as always, we won’t know for sure until Nintendo decides they want to share more upeqt3w with us.
The good news is that a new Pokemon Direct is being held this week that could offer up 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 include new Gen 8 Pokemon and will feature a region based on the British Isles.
The Nintendo Direct E3 2019 live stream will begin at 18.00 CEST on June 11, proving more news on upcoming Switch games, Sword and Shield included.
