Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will not feature each and every Pokemon. This is no confirmed from the statement of Game Producer Junichi Masuda who in an interview with Japanese Magazine Famitsu shared why it is a challenge that cannot be overcome. Recent upsetting news backslashed Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield for not featuring every Pokemon, game producer spoke the technical limitations behind the firm decision to exclude some of these cute little creatures from the roaster.
Masuda explained that it is extremely difficult to make Pokemon with a new personality play an active part and balance their compatibility. It is extremely tough to add more than 1000 in-game models with the required graphics quality of Nintendo Switch and ensure that every one of them is a balance in the battle.
We have decided that it is difficult to make all Pokémon appear in future works. This decision is personally sad. Of course, I wanted to be able to bring all Pokémon if I could do it, but it was also a decision that I had to make some day. In the end, I had no choice but to choose the quality.
This does not conclude the end of having pokemon in the game with an impassionate reply there is also an interesting conclusion the game producer added in the end to give a hope that in future there might be certain possibilities for players to have what they want.
Just like all of you, we are passionate about Pokemon and each and every one of them is very important to us. After so many years of developing the Pokemon video games, this was a very difficult decision for me. I’d like to make one thing clear: even if a specific Pokemon is not available in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, that does not mean it will not appear in future games.
