This page details one or more prototype versions of Pokémon Sword and Shield.

So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
Notes: Add git commit hashes for each build (they're visible in-game after "git:" in the "Version" menu). Apart from identifying them univocally, they can be used to track them down in their repository if it ever gets leaked.

Three prototypes of Pokémon Sword and Shield were leaked in October 2020, with the dates of the latter two builds lining up with a now-infamous security breach conducted by former Malwarebytes employee Zammis Clark in early 2018.

The filenames for the prototypes and their corresponding passwords are as follows:

  • develop_Develop_264_20180326134219_Sword.zip (JF9034jf)
  • develop_Develop_30_20171222164419.zip (ejfid934)
  • develop_Develop_562_20180525204848_Sword.zip (f9fdja9) (split into two parts)


Build 30

Build 264

Build 562
Dated May 25, 2018. Let's Go Bicycle!
