Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC Confirmed Pokemon


All the Pokemon so far new and old, that will be available in the new Pokemon Expansions!

When it was announced that only 400 of the Pokemon would be available in the S&S games, everyone lost their minds. Whether or not Game Freak planned to have DLC’s in the future, we will never know but at least slowly we will be able to capture all Pokemon. There will be over 200+ old and new Pokemon that will be added the Galarian game pokedex. Game Freak have also made it so you do not need to purchase the DLCs to upgrade your Pokedex. This is done with the newest game update. You will not find these Pokemon in the wild without the DLCs but they can be traded from other plays or from your Pokemon Home account (once up and running).

So lets take a look at the Pokemon coming so far!

Isle Of Armor Expansion

The first part doesn’t focus too much on the new Pokemon, especially since the Galarian Slowpoke is now available to catch at the train station. For the Slowpoke to appear you must first update your Sword or Shield game, this can be done in the Nintendo switch home page.
