This guide lists all Pokemon that are exclusive to Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield, along with each version's exclusive Pokemon in the Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra DLC.
List of Contents
Compared with The Isle of Armor DLC, the Crown Tundra DLC boasts a significantly higher number of exclusive Pokemon. In addition to exclusive Pokemon found in the wild, Pokemon which are available in Dynamax Adventures vary highly by version.
Note that it's still possible to catch Version Exclusives from Dynamax Adventure in either game when playing online. Because you join another player's game in Dynamax Adventures, Pokemon from either version can appear, so the exclusives are mostly relevant for offline play.
The Isle of Armor has just a few Pokemon exclusive to each version as shown above, although it's also possible to catch them in Max Raids when they appear.
Additionally, it's also possible to catch version exclusive Pokemon if participating in a Max Raid hosted by another player.
The Legendary Pokemon and mascots of Pokemon Sword and Shield are each exclusive to their respective game. The Attack-focused Zacian can only be obtained in Pokemon Sword, while the Defensive Zamazenta is exclusive to Pokemon Shield.
|Gigantamax Machamp||Gigantamax Lapras|
|Gigantamax Coalossal||Gigantamax Gengar|
|Gigantamax Flapple||Gigantamax Appletun|
Although their normal versions are available in both versions, Gigantamax versions of some Pokemon are exclusive to either Pokemon Sword or Shield. That said, players from either version can participate in Max Raid Battles featuring these Pokemon when they are hosted by another player.
