Pokémon Sword: Solo Self Found

A Mod for Pokemon Sword & Shield


quick hotfix 15d
  • BugFix Route 8 (on Steamdrift Way) [H] caused a crash due to silly leftover mistake that wasn't suposed to make the upload. I've updated the main file

All Shield Exclusive Pokémon! No more trade evolutions!

Pokemon Sword SSF
Tested on Pokemon Sword v1.2.0 for Yuzu Emulator

The goal of this mod is to provide people who play on emulator, or without internet a way to complete their pokedex (all 400 Pokemon) by merging all Shield exclusives into Sword, and changing trade evolutions to evolve at level 50 instead.

Please note that this mod is meant for offline play, the Shield Exclusives caught should most likely never be traded as they dont have the Legit checkmark in PKHeX

The catch rates are Similar or slightly lower than they normally would be, and the pokemon are found where they normally would in Pokemon Shield (with exception of Oranguru and blue Basculin)

Note that this is my very first mod for Pokemon Sword and even though its mostly tested, there may be some missing pokemon. i used Serebii as main source of my information for all the exclusives and trade evolution's. please let me know if you run into any issues.

This mod does not work on Pokemon Shield and i know it sucks to hear, but as i don't play pokemon shield i have no plans to make such version right now.

    What is the easiest way to check if it works on a switch with atmosphere?
    I put it in the titles folder for sword but I dont know if was actually loaded. Mods in general work since I use one for BotW
