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.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
