There are still several months left for Pokémon Sword / Pokémon Shield to go on sale, but the new pocket monsters for Nintendo Switch have already starred in one of the most talked about polemics of the entire saga: we will not be able to Pokémon to date, and we will be limited to a selection selected by Game Freak. Junichi Masuda, producer of the games, today shared an apology message with fans through an official website.
” Thanks to all our fans who put so much into Pokémon ” comments the creative. ” Recently, I shared the news that some Pokémon can not be transferred to Pokémon Sword / Shield. I have read all your comments and I appreciate your love and passion for Pokémon. Like you, we also love Pokémon and each and every one of them is very important to us. After so many years developing Pokémon videogames, this decision was very difficult ”
Without clear promises about when we can see the Pokémon that are left out of the regional Pokédex, Masuda explains that ” even if a Pokémon specific does not appear in Pokémon Sword / Shield, that does not mean that it will not appear in future games. The world of Pokémon continues to evolve. The Galar region offers new Pokémon to know, coaches to face and adventures in which to embark. We are pouring our hearts into these games, and we hope that you embark with us on this new journey. “
As you can see, the message does not change the current situation and is limited to guaranteeing that we can use other Pokémon in future deliveries, if weeks ago the Japanese team made that clear that future Pokémon games will have a hard time including all existing creatures.
