The release of Pokémon Sword and Shield is less than one week away, and many fans are looking forward to game.
Three years have passed since a Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon arrived on the 3DS. While mobile games were released during the interval, many fans prefer the console version of the game for a variety of reasons.
A large number of leaks have surfaced in recent weeks, and the latest one is quite major as the entire Pokédex of the new game has been released. Since this is a leak there is no way to say if the information is completely accurate, but it appears to be credible.
However, it seems that the announcement has sparked heated debates among the community since a large number of iconic Pokémon will not be available. Among the names we can count are:
Tepig, Pignite, Emboar, Oshawott, Dewott, Samurott, Patrat, Watchog, Lillipup, Herdier, Stoutland, Pansage, Simisage, Pansear, Simisear, Panpour, Simipour, Blitzle, Zebstrika, Audino, Sewaddle, Swadloon, Leavany, Vernipede, Whirlipede, Scolipede, Petilil, Liligant, Sandile, Krokorok, Krookodile, Tirtouga, Carracosta, Archen, Archeops, Zorua, Zoruark, Ducklett, Swanna, Deerling, Sawsbuck, Emolga, Foongus, Amoonguss, Alomomola, Tynamo, Eelektrik, Eelektross, Cryogonal, Mienfoo, Mienshao, Driddigon, Boufallant, Larvesta, Volcarona, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Zekrom, Reshiram, Landorus, Kyurem, Keldeo, Melloetta, Genesect.
Several threads present on the internet discuss the situation, but it is likely that Nintendo decided to reduce the number of available to make the gameplay experience more interesting.
The game is set in the Galar region, a reimagined version of the United Kingdom. A new mechanic will be present in the game in the form of Dynamaxing. It will place the Z-Moves and Mega-Evolutions, which were present in previous incarnations of the game. Poké Jobs will allow trainers to earn experience at a faster rate.
Despite the disappointed related to a large number of missing Pokémon, the game will likely be successful.
