[major potential spoilers] pokémon sword and shield's full pokédex leak (unconfirmed)
The Pokémon franchise will have its first major console release developed by GameFreak released this month (not counting the Pokémon Let's go titles). Fans have been hungry for any news regarding the new eighth generation pokédex.
Be warned that although this leak is unconfirmed, if it is true, the entire (or some) of the new eighth generation Pokémon will be spoiled.
Nintendo have made it clear that the National dex will not include every single Pokémon ever created, a fact that was met with major criticism from many Pokémon fans. Pokémon fans have enjoyed bringing their Pokémon with them across games and the fact that they will no longer be able to do this caused a huge controversy.
According to the leak, there are 400 total monsters in the games. A ResetEra user user who goes by the name of Atheerios shared what appears to be the full lineup of eighth generation Pokemon (posted on the bottom of the article for spoilers sake). The producer Junichi Masuda stated that it was tricky to do so during the games development cycle and cited a number of reasons; including the fact that all the Pokémon that were in the game were now rendered in high definition.
The game is due for release on the 15th November and has a number of new features. The game has also seen some criticism for not appearing to be massively different from the previous instalments. Fans were expecting a bigger jump from the previous handheld iterations and instead it seems like Sword and Shield will be more of the same. Of course we will have to wait until the 15th to see just how different or the same the games actually are. Without further ado:
