New Pokémon in Pokémon Sword & Shield

The Galar starter Pokémon: Grookey, the Grass-type Monkey; Scorbunny, the Fire-type Rabbit; and Sobble, the Water-type Lizard

There are a total of 81 new Pokémon in Pokémon Sword & Shield, in addition to a total of 13 new Galarian forms of existing Pokémon. The first three revealed, shown above, are the starter Pokémon for the Galar region and they are Grookey (left), Scorbunny (center), and Sobble (right).

If you’d like information on each of the Pokémon in the Galar region, check out the site’s new Pokémon Sword & Shield Pokédex, which will tell you the new Pokémon’s stats, moves, abilities, and more.

The listing below is for Pokémon that were officially revealed before the game’s launch. It is an incomplete list of ALL Pokémon but shows a decent selection and contains things such as screenshots, artwork, and other information. Keep in mind that some information may be outdated; the Pokédex will contain current information while the pages below are mostly from pre-release information.

Galarian Forms

Like the Alolan forms of Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Sun & Moon, Pokémon Sword & Shield introduce their own regional variants of existing Pokémon, featuring new appearances, typing, abilities, and moves.
