Pokemon Sword and Shield Exclusives: New Galarian Exclusive Pokemon
By Andrew Lin
Pokemon Sword and Shield Exclusives are being revealed more and more as we approach the launch of the game. Here are all the currently known version specific Pokemon in Sword and Shield.
Pokemon Sword and Shield Exclusives: New Galarian Form Exclusive Pokemon
The two newly revealed Galarian Pokemon will be version exclusives. Farefetch'd and Sirfetch'd will be exclusive to Sword, and Galarian Ponyta and allegedly Galarian Rapidash (if it doesn't evolve into a new Pokemon) will be Shield exclusives.
The sword wielding Zacian is the cover Pokemon for Sword, and the shielded dog Zamazenta represents Shield. While it isn't technically confirmed they are exclusive, it's tradition at this point.

Deino is a Dark and Dragon type Pokemon that evolves into Zweilous and then into Hydreigon. It was first introduced in Black/White.
