Pokemon Sword and Shield Version Exclusive Pokemon

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.

Version Exclusive Pokemon

The Crown Tundra Exclusives

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.
