One of the most important things players crave to know before joining a new Pokémon game is what version exclusives are. Pokémon games are often released in pairs, with the only difference being what type of Pokémon can be caught in each version. For example, you can only catch Alolan Vulpix in Pokémon Sun, while Alolan Sandshrew can only catch Pokémon Moon.
Version-exclusive Pokémon encourage players to use online swaps to complete their Pokédex and play with friends. While many players find themselves buying both Pokémon games when they release, often or not, the average person could only afford to buy one version of Pokémon at launch. The version they purchase is generally determined by which type of Pokémon is exclusive to which title.
Pokémon Sword and Shield exclusive version has been a major source of discussion, although now it seems we know which Pokémon are exclusive to which title.
