After weeks of violence and anger, the producer gave Pokemon Sword & Shield, Junichi Masuda, a statement yesterday where he decided not to have all Pokemon move forward into Sword & Shield . The statement is quite short and the main pickup is simple: they all hear anger and disappointment, but they do not change their plans to only get some Pokemon returns from previous games.
Earlier this month at E3 2019, under a Nintendo stream, Masuda confirmed the bad news for the viewers. Unlike previous games in the franchise, Sword & Shield could only allow some Pokemon to be imported from other generations and regions. This news spread throughout the community Pokemon and many fans were ahead of the news. For some players who have imported their favorite Pokemon for years from game to game, they were afraid that it would no longer be possible.

In the statement released yesterday and during the initial announcement, Masuda assured the fans that this was not an easy decision to make. Masuda feels it forward, it was the best. Masuda also added that just because a Pokemon is not found in Sword & Shield, does not mean that it is not reflected in a future Pokemon game.
He also completed his brief statement with a simple message to fans:
"We pour our hearts into these games and we hope you will look forward to joining this new journey."
This is something to remember. The people at Gamefreak who are working on this game spend months and years in their lives developing this new adventure Pokemon adventure. It's okay to be disappointed or even a little worried about the National Dex news. But don't attack, harass or offend the people who make this game. It does nothing and is a shitty way to treat people.
We still do not know the full list of Pokemon in Sword & Shield and which creatures have made the clip. Until we learn this information, players must hope their favorite Pokemon has made it the upcoming game.
