PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I am seriously considering getting a Switch.

Moderator note: Please don't answer this question if you're only guessing. Until the game's release, the best source of information to answer this are the trailers which show some past-gen Pokemon.

Because Sword and Shield don't have a National Pokedex, only Pokemon in the Galar Pokedex will be able to transfer to those games. The full extent of Galar's Pokedex is currently unknown, but the Sword and Shield pages under Pokemon Games on this site have a list of Pokemon that have already been confirmed to be in these games.
If you don't know, why are you answering?
Please read the question - and specifically the moderators note - carefully before answering.
I don't know, but I hope any Pokemon will be able to be transferred over.  You need to get a Switch, they are awsome. Here are a few games that you can play on the switch. >>
Portal Knights, FortNight, Pokemon let's go Eevee or Pikachu, Minecraft, Zelda, Mario cart, Lego Ninjago video game, The lego movie video game, Lego worlds, Over cooked, and much more! (some of those I do play)
The Nintendo Switch is kinda lame tbh. 3Ds is better in my opinion. Maybe that’s slightly bias because of how much use I get from my old 3DS.
If I got a switch it would be just for SwSh. (I play LGPE on my MacBook Pro).

Gyarados, Mewtwo are in the game currently.
Garchomp, Volcarona and Arceus aren't.
If DP remakes are released, you may be able to trade in Garchomp and Arceus.

Update: Garchomp and Volcarona are in via the DLC.
Likely, DP remakes will happen this generation and Arceus will be in too.
