Pokémon Sword and Shield: here is the complete Pokédex Galar, the evolution of the starters, the legendaries and all the new eighth generation creatures.
The Pokédex complete with Pokémon Sword and Shield, the two new games for Nintendo Switch, has been revealed alongside the expected evolution of the starters Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble (with the complete numbering of the available creatures and the legendary to be captured, including the mysterious Eternatus).
Lots of meat revealed by the Pokémon Sword and Shield escapes, which offered an unprecedented look at the new monsters and the final evolutions of Galar’s initial Pokémon.
A Pokédex full of novelties and some old acquaintances, which counts as we know only some of the Pokémon created to date and not their total number (a revision of the concept “catch them all” that made some fans turn up their noses). If you don’t want spoilers, stop here otherwise read on.
Pokémon Sword and Shield: Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble starter evolutions
Shrouded in mystery, the evolutions of the Pokémon Sword and Scudo starters have been revealed by a leak that anticipates their final forms (still kept hidden by Nintendo and Game Freak).
Let’s start with Grookey, who completes his journey from a small grass-type monkey to an orangutan armed with a huge drum: his evolutions are called Thwackey (level 16) and Rillaboom (level 36).
Scorbunny, the fire-type rabbit, takes anthropomorphic traits evolving into a final creature that seems to emphasize speed recalling a sportsman.
Raboot is its first evolutionary form, reachable at level 16, with lowered ears and a darker body, while its last stage (Cinderace, at level 36) sees it ready for any challenge and with ears having a winged shape ( perhaps to underline precisely the high speed).
The biggest change concerns the small Sobble, which grows changing from a shy and defenseless aspect first in Drizzile, level 16, with an emo tuft, and then in Inteleon at level 36.
Inteleon in particular confirms the rumors that wanted Sobble to star in a final form that closely resembled a sophisticated spy (inspired, given the British setting, to 007).
Sword and Shield Pokémon: Complete Galar Pokédex
The evolution of the starter also includes the complete Pokédex of Galar, which in its regional form has 400 creatures to capture : the eighth-generation Pokémon should be 81 , with 13 Galar forms revisiting the Pokémon of the older generations (of which we know Weezing, Zigzagoon and evolutions, Ponyta and Rapidash, Corsola with a new evolution, Yamask with new evolution, Mr Mime with a new final stage and many others) and 17 Gigamax (special transformations among which we count Charizard, Butterfree, Lapras, Machamp, Pikachu, Eevee and other).
As for the legendaries, it seems that the duo on the cover formed by Z acian and Zamazenta will be respectively a sprite and a fight type and will have an original, unfinished initial shape. Once assumed the aspect we know in cover, with the first armed with a sword and the second with a shield mane, both will take on the steel type in addition to the initial.
These are joined by the mysterious Eternatus, which will complete the trio of legendaries: the creature, of an evil nature, seems to be a thousand-year threat to Galar to which only Zacian and Zamaenta can remedy. The Pokémon will be equipped with a Gigamax form that will change its final appearance, which could be really terrifying to what leaked.
All you have to do is play Pokémon Sword and Shield to be aware of all the news: if you are curious about all the other revealed creatures, you can refer to this video that lists the complete Galar Pokédex.
Pokémon Sword and Shield: forms Gigamax, will the Pokédex be expanded?
The Gigamax Pokémon are, as we have seen, among the most awaited creatures: the giant forms of some creatures differ from the normal Dynamax, which magnify only the Pokémon in turn, also changing their appearance.
Among the Pokémon able to Gigamaxizzarsi we find about twenty creatures, including:
- Pikachu (if in possession of a copy of Let’s Go Pikachu);
- Meowth (for those who buy a copy by January 2020);
- Eevee (if in possession of a copy of Let’s Go Eevee);
To these should be added new forms, leaked by a leak and that probably should be unlocked in the next few months (leaving presage the presence of updates and extra contents fruit of events or mini dlc).
Among these we find Snorlax Gigamax, a new form for Melmetal and many others in addition to the introduction of additional Pokémon: these are the first-generation starters, Bulbasaur and Squirtle, next to their evolutions and Alola’s initial Pokémon from Pokémon Sun and Moon (the latest games released for Nintendo 3DS): Rowlet, Litten and Popplio.
The legendaries are also added, for a total of 35 more creatures: Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Squirtle, Wartortle, Blastoise, Mewtwo, Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Keldeo, Rowlet, Dartrix, Decidueye, Litten, Torracat, Incineroar, Popplio, Brionne, Primarin, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, Necrozma, Marshadow, Zeraora, Meltan, Melmetal.
