Every Pokemon from the recent Sword and Shield leaks

The internet has been flooded with Pokemon Sword and Shield leaks which includes a long list of leaked species.

Update: The entire Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokedex has now leaked but there are suggestions there could be more to come.

Most of the information appears to have come from a guidebook which one lucky Pokemon fan has obtained an early copy of. We can’t confirm that the leaks are genuine but they do appear authentic.

If you want to start Pokemon Sword and Shield without knowing any leaked details then we suggest you check out our other Pokemon content. With that out of the way here is every supposedly leaked Pokemon from Sword and Shield.


Starter Pokemon

After months of silence the ones everyone was waiting for were the evolutions of Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble. The leak didn’t disappoint sharing the first and second evolved forms for each of the Sword and Shield starter Pokemon.

As expected Grookey turns into a big gorilla whereas Scorbunny and Sobble’s evolutions are a little more surprising.

Galarian Rapidash

When Galarian Ponyta was revealed in the 24-hour Sword and Shield livestream, it made a big impact on the Pokemon community. It was received so well that its exclusivity to Pokemon Shield could be a huge factor when trainers decide which version they’re going to get.


While we saw several images and a subsequent video of Galarian Ponyta, it left the question as to what a Galarian Rapidash would look like. Well, now we don’t need to wonder as it has been supposedly leaked.

Rolycoly looks powerful

The Coal Pokemon, Rolycoly, was revealed back in July. “Its red eye can illuminate dark areas, while it uses the lump of coal attached to its body like a wheel to move through coal mines and caves,” says the official Pokemon Sword and Shield website.

This suggests it could have something to do with the rumors of travel to the Kalos region. The latest batch of leaks haven’t focused on that however, instead sharing its two evolved forms.


More Gigantamax reveals

The guidebook also reveals two more Gigantamax Pokemon which are once again from the Kanto region. One of these is Kingler which looks to have been already hinted at when Kinglers overtook the Pokemon Sword and Shield website.

The other species to be given a Gigantamax version is Lapras and Machamp. All of their abilities currently remain unknown, though.

The rest

That isn’t all of them, however. More Pokemon can be seen below which include the pre-evolved form of Corviknight, the evolved form Yamper and a new bug-type evolution line.

While these leaks are most certainly not confirmed, with Pokemon Sword and Shield releasing on November 15 we can expect more details to leak between now and then.
