Pokemon Sword & Shield has a lot of fans wondering if their favorite characters made the cut alongside all the new Pokemon that are set to be introduced in the Nintendo Switch title. One of the original three and well-known vine-whipper, Bulbasaur is among those seemingly in limbo regarding an appearance. Here is everything you need to know about if you can get Bulbasaur in Pokemon Sword & Shield.
Can You Get Bulbasaur in Pokemon Sword and Shield?
Cutting right to the chase, unfortunately, the first-ever grass starter Pokemon is not among them.
While there are a few characters not in the game that can be transferred over from Pokemon Go and Let’s Go, Bulbasaur is not featured as one of them.
With this news, it should come without saying that the Pokemon’s evolutions, Ivysaur and Venusaur, are also not going to be available in the game at any point.
While this may be disappointing, know that you’re not the only one that feels this way. Twinfinite’s very own Tony Cocking has mocked up a court case on the subject, “The People vs. Charizard“, detailing the injustice.
No, there is no way to get Bulbasaur in Pokemon Sword and Shield, not even via transferring from Pokemon Go and Let’s Go.
That is everything you need to know about if you can get Bulbasaur in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
