Tensions have been high since it was revealed that the game will not be launching with a local Pokedex. In different phrases, they will not have each Pokemon in them, in contrast to earlier video games.

The latest core entry in the Pokemon RPG series, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are set in the new Galar region, where you will choose from three new starter Pokemon to begin your adventure.

Well, it looks like those fans are gonna continue being disappointed since an interview Pokemon Producer Junichi Masuda had with Inside Gamer (translated by Nintendo Everything) revealed that there will be no plans to complete the Pokedex in Sword and Shield.

"Providing officially licensed games and not dealing within the grey key market is paramount to our brand, rewarding the hard-working publishers, developers and partners that we work with, as well as providing our customers with top quality products". Up until now it hasn't been possible to encounter every Pokemon in every game, so people had to transfer them from old games to the new game, by using Pokemon Bank for example. This will allow you to get the game, well, downloaded in advance.

We also get yet another look at all of the Dynamaxing and Gigantamaxing action in the region, see more of the gym leaders, and glimpses of a train station and the Glimwood Tangle forest area. "So take excellent care of your outdated Pokemon, as a result of maybe you'll be able to journey with them once more sooner or later".
