Three prototypes of Pokémon Sword and Shield leaked during October 2020, the dates of the latter two prototypes lining up with a now-infamous security breach conducted by former Malwarebytes employee Zammis Clark in early 2018. The earliest of the three builds is dated almost two years prior to the final game.

Dated May 2018. A still early but a two months later version of the March 2018 prototype.
