Galar border control: Which Pokémon will get in?

Recommended Posts

So when Sun and Moon dropped it's first few trailers I made a topic that showcased the Pokémon that weren't native to Alola but were still findable. I'm doing something similar but this time I'll actually make a good attempt because I'm atleast a little but competent now. This topic will keep track of which Pokémon from previous generations were visible in trailers as well as be open to theorize which Pokémon could appear in the Galar region.


Confirmed Pokémon


Charmander - Charmeleon - Charizard (I don't think you'll find this one in the wild but the champion has one)

Caterpie - Metapod - Butterfree

Pichu - Pikachu - Raichu

Cleffa - Clefairy - Clefable

Vulpix - Ninetales

Diglett - Dugtrio

Growlithe - Arcanine

Onix - Steelix

Ghastly - Haunter - Gengar

Rhyhorn - Rhydon - Rhyperior

Magikarp - Gyarados

Munchlax - Snorlax

Hoothoot - Noctowl

Wooper - Quagsire

Wynaut - Wobbaffet

Sneasel - Weavile

Mantyke - Mantine

Larvitar - Pupitar - Tyranitar

Wingull - Pelipper

Lotad - Lombre - Ludicolo

Budew - Roselia - Roserade

Wailmer - Wailord

Trapinch - Vibrava - Flygon

Feebass - Milotic

Duskull - Dusclops - Dusknoir

Riolu - Lucario

Hippopotas - Hippowdon

Snover - Abamasnow

Tympole - Palpitoad - Seismitoad


Mincinno - Cincinno

Frillish - Jellicent

Joltik - Galvantula

Axew - Fraxure - Haxorus

Golett - Golurk

Rufflet - Braviary

Deino - Zweilous - Hydreigon

Bunnelby - Diggersby (this one is really well hidden)

Pancham - Pangoro

Espurr - Meowstic

Inkay - Malamar


Bergmite  - Avalugg
Goomy - Sliggoo -Goodra

Grubbin - Charjabug - Vikavolt


Stuffull - Bewear

Mudbray - Mudsdale

Bounsweet - Steenee - Tsareena
Jangmo-o - Hakamo-o - Kommo-o


Suggested Pokémon (The ones that weren't directly shown but are pretty likely due to other factors)


Bulbasaur - Ivysaur - Venusaur (to complete the Kanto starter trio)

Squirtle - Wartortle - Blastoise (to complete the Kanto starter trio)

Throh (because Sawk is it's counterpart)

Vullaby - Mandibuzz (because Rufflet and Braviary are their counterparts)

Fletchling - Fletchinder - Talonflame (because of the weather vane)


Pokemon I think are going to appear


Zubat - Golbat - Crobat (what's a good region without these guys?)

Eevee (Eevee is being pushed as a secondary mascot so I think you could definetly find them)

Swinub - Piloswine - Mamoswine (because there are a lot of wild boars in Great Brittain and they'll fit perfectly into the snow area)

Lillipup - Herdier - Stoutland (correct me if I'm wrong but terrier's were first bred in either Scotland or England)

Klink - Klang - Klinklang (perfect for the city with the steamtrain)

Honedge - Doublade - Aegislash (because Aegislash literally consists of a sword and a shield unless they pull a fast one on us like they did with Sun and Moon by not including Solrock and Lunatone)

Klefki (being based on Irish folklore and this being the region that will probably get the closest to Ireland)


Feel free to theorize on what Pokemon should appear in this region and feel free to correct me on any Pokemon I missed.


Edit 1: just noticed Vulpix was in the crowd of the arena so now they went from Suggested mons to Confirmed.

Edit 2: Added Joltik and Lotad line from the Direct.
Edit 3: Added Goomy and Jangmo-o from the website

@Urist_Imiknorris Game freak have confirmed more than 1000 mons gonna be there after the recent backlash.

LoL what is the point of having the "catch'phrase gotta catch em all if all of them are not released. I think game freak will release all the mons eventually and make it a monetized timed quest to obtain certain mons from the previous generation.

No, Game Freak said that in total, including alternate forms, there will be over 1000 Pokémon across all 8 generations. They have not yet said how many will be in SwSh
