If I have a friend in Sword can I get a path from him that's exclusive to his game. (Ex. Can I get the path/catch it if it's not exclusive to my game.)

Best answer

If players connect with a Link Code from different versions, the Pokémon can be from either game regardless of exclusives so you'd be able to get Tornadus in Shield or Thundurus in Sword for example.

So yes, you can.

Yes

I play the shield version, and I have still found other sword exclusive Pokémon by playing with other random players. If you play online with other players, you can still sometimes encounter Pokémon that can be found in the other version depending on who the party leader is.

Hope that makes sense
