FAKE: THIS POST IS NOW CONFIRMED AS UNTRUE. It will be left up for archival purposes.
A list of Pokémon that claims to be the National Pokédex list for Pokémon Sword & Shield has been posted to an anonymous forum by someone claiming to have extracted it from the E3 demo. Lists like this historically are usually false and we urge readers not to put their hopes into it being true.
The list is as follows [I have added previous generation Pokémon names in brackets if they were mentioned for ease of reading]:
808: Meltan (Hex Nut Pokémon) (Steel) (Base)
809: Melmetal (Hex Nut Pokémon) (Steel) (Evolves from 808)
810: Grookey (Chimp Pokémon) (Grass) (Base)
811: Drumpan (Beat Chimp Pokémon) (Grass) (Evolves from 810)
812: Chimpongo (Beat Chimp Pokémon) (Grass) (Evolves from 811)
813: Scorbunny (Rabbit Pokémon) (Fire) (Base)
814: Hoppyre (Rabbit Pokémon) (Fire) (Evolves from 813)
815: Moltare (Tempering Pokémon) (Fire/Steel) (Evolves from 814)
816: Sobble (Water Lizard Pokémon) (Water) (Base)
817: Nerviz (Water Lizard Pokémon) (Water/Ghost) (Evolves from 816)
818: Fearliz (Water Lizard Pokémon) (Water/Ghost) ((Evolves from 817)
819: Joypu (Rodent Pokémon) (Normal) (Base)
820: Felutria (Rodent Pokémon) (Normal) (Evolves from 819)
821: Weasense (Weasel Pokemon) (Psychic) (Base)
822: Ibrisk (Bird Pokémon) (Normal/Flying) (Base)
823: Hadedagile (Bird Pokémon) (Normal/Flying) (Evolves from 823)
824: Bruceros (Vengeful Pokémon) (Dark/Flying) (Evolves from 824)
There are many interesting ideas in the above dex listing, such as the starters’ final evolutions’ typings, evolutions for previous Pokémon, new Eeveelutions and unique type combinations.
Personally, I want to see a Dunsparce evolution. Feels like I’ve spent 3,000 years waiting for one. I know YOU will find something different that sticks out and I can’t wait to read what you think in the comments! So let us know!
