This is a list of known Pokémon in the Galar regional Pokédex.
Only Pokémon in the Galar Pokédex can be transferred from Pokémon HOME to Pokémon Sword and Shield. Because of this restriction, any Pokémon seen in Pokémon Sword and Shield in official promotional material (and their evolutionary relatives) are assumed to be in the Galar Pokédex. As of September 19, 252 Pokémon and members of their evolutionary families have been shown in Pokémon Sword and Shield, with 20 new Pokémon and 232 returing Pokémon.
While Mega Evolutions are known not to be present in the games, it has not yet been revealed whether Alola Forms (such as Alolan Raichu), non-Galarian counterparts of Galarian forms (such as Zigzagoon), or non-interchangeable forms of Pokémon in the Galar Pokédex (such as West Sea Shellos) are in the games.
