All Pokémon not in Nintendo Switch games

Will they ever show up?

There are over 1,000 Pokémon now in the series. It’s a huge difference from the measly 151 from the first generation. While that is an impressive number to behold, that doesn’t necessarily mean all the Pokémon that have been added over the years will be in the latest entry. In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the number was cut to only 400 Pokémon. However, the problem extends far beyond Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Due to the sheer amount of creatures present in the series, there are some Pokémon that have been ignored. So much so, that they haven’t been in any of the Pokémon games released on the Nintendo Switch. The question is, which Pokémon have not been featured in any of the Nintendo Switch games?

All the Pokémon not in any of the Pokémon Switch games

There are 38 Pokémon that don’t make an appearance in any of the Switch entries. While there is still a chance that they can appear in DLC, fans are starting to lose hope that these Pokémon will ever make an appearance in a Nintendo Switch Pokémon game. Here are all the Pokémon that have yet to show up:

  • Blitzle
  • Braixen
  • Chesnaught
  • Chespin
  • Delphox
  • Deoxys
  • Diancie
  • Ducklett
  • Emboar
  • Fennekin
  • Furfrou
  • Hoopa
  • Leavanny
  • Magearna
  • Meloetta
  • Minior
  • Panpour
  • Pansage
  • Pansear
  • Patrat
  • Pignite
  • Pikipek
  • Quilladin
  • Samurott
  • Serperior
  • Servine
  • Sewaddle
  • Simipour
  • Simisage
  • Simisear
  • Snivy
  • Swadloon
  • Swanna
  • Tepig
  • Toucannon
  • Trumbeak
  • Watchog
  • Zebstrika

Some of the listed Pokemon, such as Blitzle and Zebstrika, have been rumored to return in the upcoming Scarlet and Violet DLC according to a leak that was released shortly after the 2023 Pokémon Day broadcast. However, this hasn’t been confirmed and as it is with game development, things can change. Until it is confirmed that these Pokémon will be appearing in the DLC, it’s best to keep your expectations in check.
