  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

Has it been confirmed that Turtonator, Drampa, Sableye, Mawile, the Gothita line, the Solosis line, the Rufflet line, and the Vullaby line are version exclusive? While it's likely that they are, there's no guarantees.

On that note, I don't think those will be the only version exclusives. I mean, we haven't seen a lot of the new Pokemon.

Obviously not. That'd be the smallest amount of version exclusives we have ever gotten in a main series game, even in RGBY and LGPE.

They aren't. Being on a download card does not mean that they are version exclusive. If they are, then that means that Wooloo and Eldegoss are exclusive to Sword and Yamper and Alcremie are exclusive to Shield.

Actually, GS, RS, BW and SM only had 10, 13, 17 and 15 pairs, respectively. SwSh already have 16 if this list is accurate, so I wouldn't expect a lot more (but certainly some new Pokemon).

I count 9 (total 18) evolution families for each for swsh so far, for a total of 28 exclusives.

Buuut looks like SM also had the same exact number, discounting box legends
Still doubt this is it though

Huh. Mawile is exclusive to Sword? That's tough, first exclusive that Sword has that looks better than its counterpart. Never did like Sableye much.

I think the reason those Pokémon are considered version exclusives is because all the Pokémon features in the card have been exclusives in the past, so it seem logical to conclude them exclusive here.

They don't have to be. Gothita and Solosis were found in both versions in XY (and not even in the same locations as each other).

I may have broken the curse of sticking with the cool color coded version, but apparently in exchange I have to continue the curse of never getting to use a Braviary in my game. I just wanna name the eagle pokemon after my late dad, Gamefreak. He loved eagles. And native american culture (his grandma was a full blooded cherokee and he was very proud of that, which are some of the few things I remember most about him). Why you gotta do me like this. I still ain't gonna pay for your stupid online junk. You can't break me.

I do however love the version exclusives I'm getting. Ehh on Solosis line, but I'll be using a psychic pony anyway so he don't matter.
