Pokemon Sword And Shield Guidebook Suggests The Galar Pokedex Has At Least 500 Pokemon

Today we have some interesting news about the Pokemon Sword and Shield Galar Dex.

As you all know, not all Pokemon are going to make it into Pokemon Sword and Shield. While Game Freak has remain tight lipped on which Pokemon have been cut from the games, the official Galar Region Pokedex guidebook has given us a clue.

According to an Amazon listing, the official Galar Region Pokedex guidebook has 448 pages, about 58% the number of pages the official National Dex guidebook has (772 pages). As each page contains descriptions for  1 – 2 Pokemon and Mega Evolutions aren’t included in the upcoming games, this means the Galar Region Pokedex will be home to at least 500 Pokemon.

Assuming the National Dex consists of 900 Pokemon by the time Pokemon Sword and Shield launches this year, that would mean 45% of all other Pokemon will not appear in the games.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
