Every Pokémon that might have been cut from Sword and Shield

The National Dex is dead.

The entire Galar Pokédex has allegedly been revealed through various leaks and shown that there are only 400 Pokémon in Sword and Shield, meaning that there are nearly 600 others that aren’t going to make the leap to the Nintendo Switch yet. 

Of those 400 Pokémon, 300 are returning creatures from previous games. But that still leaves a huge gap and many unhappy fans. Those cut will be back eventually, whether through DLC or later games, but now it is time to go through and see just what species are going to be put in storage.
