Pokémon Sword: third DLC in 2021? Old leak had guessed all the ads

Pokémon Sword

Pokémon Sword and Shield could receive a third DLC in 2021. The information comes from an old public leak in February 2020 on 4chan. Why are we exhuming it now? Because, with hindsight, we realize that that leak had incredibly "guessed" all the upcoming announcements. At the time no one had considered it as credible, both for the source and for the exaggerated amount of information included.

Posted by an anonymous 4chan user, the leak claimed that in 2020 Pokémon Sword and Shield would receive two DLC that would have added roughly 200 Pokémon. He was later told that a remake of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl would arrive in 2021. Furthermore, the leak spoke of another project at the time known only as Project Kingpin that would be released in 2022: even if it is not possible to confirm it, it is highly likely that it referred to Arceus Pokémon Legends, expected precisely for 2022.

Finally, the leak stated that in 2021 a DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield would also arrive, which would add some of the missing Pokémon and three new mystical Pokémon. Obviously it is possible that the leaker had a lot (very) luck and guessed the various announcements without actually having information.

Furthermore, the leak is now old and it is possible that GameFreak has in the meantime put this DLC aside. . The fact that no other rumors have emerged about it is in fact "strange", considering that the Pokémon insiders are quite active. Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, in fact, had been taken for granted by the public for some time and the announcement did not surprise anyone.

E3 2021 could be a good time to announce a third DLC of Pokémon Sword and Shield , so for now we can only wait. In the meantime, we can enjoy New Pokémon Snap: trailer showcases the beautiful settings on the Nintendo Switch.

Pokemon Sword and Shield Leak Ignites Speculation of Third DLC Releasing This Year

Wait, are Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield about to get more DLC in 2021? At first glance, this is a borderline absurd suggestion, but it's speculation that the Pokemon community finds itself trying to navigate after an old, and so far, accurate leak resurfaced online. Back in February 2020, a 4chan leak about Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield popped up and nobody paid attention to it because of not only the source but because of the claims it made. However, the leak is slowly coming true, which in turn has Pokemon fans looking it over again.

Posted by an anonymous 4chan user, the leak began by claiming that in 2020 Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield would get two DLC that would add 200 monsters. It then notes that in 2021 simple remakes of Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl will release. Obviously, it got this right.

The leaker then goes on to claim that Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will get the third bit of DLC this year, 2021, that will add the rest of the missing Pokemon and three new mystical Pokemon.

The leak then concludes that something called 'Project Kingpin' will release in 2022. What this could be, is anyone's best guess, but some think it may be Pokemon Legends: Arceus, which is scheduled to release in 2022 after being revealed earlier this year alongside Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Of course, the million-dollar question is whether or not there's something to this leak or if the leaker just got lucky with their predictions. Until we have the answer to this question, take everything here with a grain of salt.

For what it's worth, there have been zero rumors or reports about a third piece of DLC. This doesn't rule out the leak, but if a new bit of DLC was in the works, you'd think one of the many Pokemon insiders and leakers on the Internet would have relayed word about it by now.

At the moment of publishing, none of the implicated parties have commented on this leak and they probably won't. Nintendo and Game Freak never comment on leaks, rumors, reports, or anything of the unofficial and speculative variety. However, if they break this pattern for this old 4chan leak, we will update the story with whatever they have to say. In the meantime, for more coverage on all things Pokemon, click here.
