Pokemon Sword and Shield Galarian Forms Guide

The Galar Region in Pokemon Sword and Shield has its own unique variants of Pokemon. They are born and roam around this region and even have unique Galarian evolution forms which we will see for the first time in Pokemon Sword and Shield. This guide covers all Galarian Pokemon forms in the game.

Pokemon Sword and Shield Galarian Forms

Below we have listed all the known Galarian forms of Pokemon so far as well as their evolutions

Galarian Ponyta
Type: Psychic-type

Ability: Run Away / Pastel Veil

Galarian Form Ponyta is an Ancient Horn Pokémon that has been spotted in a particular forest within the region for many years.

Legend has it that the forest’s unique life energy has changed their appearance over centuries of exposure to give it the unique form it has today.

Galarian Ponyta has the ability to store life energy in its mane after it draws it from the area around it.

Galarian Weezing
Type: Poison/Fairy-type

Ability: Levitate / Neutralizing Gas

This Poison Gas Pokemon lives off polluted and dirty conditions. It absorbs all sorts of toxicity in the air before blowing it out of its own head. This gas is toxic enough to stun an enemy. Wheezing’s other known moves are Sludge Bomb, Fairy Wind, Toxic and Explosion.

Galarian Zigzagoon
Type: Dark/Normal-type

Ability: Pick Up/Gluttony

Galarian Form Zigzagoon is a tiny Racoon Pokemon that can be found all over the region.

The Galarian Zigzagoon is considered to be the oldest form of Zigzagoon to exist and it is always eager to start a fight with other Pokemon and trainers.

Galarian Linoone
Type: Dark/Normal-type

Ability: Pick Up/Gluttony

Galarian Linoone is a rushing Pokémon that has been clocked to reach speeds of 60 miles per hour. Due to this it has very destructive physical attacks such as Tackle.

You’ll definitely want to get out of the way of these attacks since they have enough force to send vehicles flying. They’re tough and always eager to start a fight.

Galarian Evolutions

Pokemon in the Galar region can evolve into unique forms below

Galarian Sirfetch’d
Type: Fighting-type

This is the evolved form of the Galarian Farfetch’d. These Pokémon are particularly humble during combat so the region has dedicated paintings that depict this. This Wild Duck Pokémon can hit you with a Meteor Assault and even Retaliate attacks.

Galarian Obstagoon
Type: Dark/Normal-type

Ability: Reckless & Guts

Obstagoon is the evolution of the Galarian Form Linoone. They are very eager to hop into combat when the opportunity presents itself.

Either it will attack first or taunt its target to goad it into a fight. Once the target attacks, Obstagoon will meet it with its Obstruct move. It can also hit you with the Night Slash and Double-Edge attacks.

These were the officially released Galarian forms of the Pokemons by Nintendo. But a leak has suggested that there are many new Galarian evolutions coming in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Keep in mind that this information is not yet officially confirmed. Below is the list of the leaked Galarian forms of Pokemon

  • Galar Mr. Mime
  • Rime
  • Darmuka
  • Galar Darumaka
  • Galar Darmanitan
  • Galar Meowth
  • Perserker
  • Galar Stunfisk
  • Galar Corsola
  • Cursola
  • Rocky

What we have learned so far about some of these Galarian Pokemons is that the species which are known for never evolving are going to evolve.

Corsola will finally evolve for the very first time. Exciting times!

Another leak that has caught the attention of fans is that Meowth will evolve too and will be part of the games.

Perserker will make an appearance and will be something different than others. A Galar Region Mr. Mime is going to be included in the game, which is expected to be in both titles, and it will actually evolve as well. Behold… Mr. Rime is coming soon.

All of these new characters have featured in leaked images and appear to have adapted to their new surroundings with new looks

We will update this guide if we discover more Galarian forms as we progress through the game.
