Due to a number of leaks from the past week, all of the Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have been revealed. In addition to returning creatures, we now know which ones will be returning as well.

A handy chart has been compiled showing all of the Pokemon cans can expect from the Galar Pokedex when playing through the adventure. You can find it below, but beware of spoilers of course.

Game Freak made it known earlier this year that not all Pokemon can be brought over to Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. Based on early leaks, quite a number of creatures were cut. While some fans have held out hope that they’ll be added later on through opportunities such as updates, it sounds like that won’t be happening.

Speaking with Dutch site InsideGamer, producer Junichi Masuda made it clear that Game Freak isn’t planning on adding missing Pokemon from the Galar Pokedex at a later point. He also again pointed out how the upcoming Pokemon Home app can be used to collect and display Pokemon from past titles.

Masuda said:

Nintendo has been known to have a heavy presence at The Game Awards. Whether it was showing some of the first Zelda: Breath of the Wild gameplay, announcing Bayonetta 3, or revealing a new Smash Bros. character, the company usually has one – if not more – big things to show.

Last year was arguably the biggest year for Nintendo fans at The Game Awards. Nintendo itself dropped the news about Joker coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate as the first DLC character, and also unveiled Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 – something nobody saw coming. On top of that, we even got some pretty big third-party announcements thanks to the likes of Mortal Kombat 11, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, and Sayonara Wild Hearts.

Now that The Game Awards 2019 is only a month away, we want to know what you’re hoping will be shown this year. What are you looking for Nintendo to debut? Let us know in the comments below.
