Here's a screenshot of a 4chan leak which pretty much accurately predicted the names and region influence last Thursday.

Going to spoil the non-confirmed rumors from this:

  • Legendaries are metal snake and wooden horse
  • Armored evolutions with Charizard, Mewtwo, Flygon, and Zeraora getting one
  • Meltan will also tie in with armored evolutions and legendary lore

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

Rotpar: Well yes, but actually no.

Switch isn’t really a “proper” home console. It’s a hybrid. So it’s more like regular handheld Pokémon games with a lot more power under the hood.

The Switch is the current home console. It is also the current mobile console. It can be two things.

Given that the legendar(y/ies) are looking to be wolf themed I think that "leak" can be safely regarded as fake.

Repeating my post in the main thread: what a way to get back into the franchise!

Watched the trailer; awesome graphics! Liked all starters so far, especially Sobble (is it a chameleon or something?).

My bets are also that this region must be based on Great Britain, judging by the big city and football scenes.

Any bets on the starters' final typing, btw?

Zero: Which is why I said “yes, but also no.”

I don’t think the wolf on the logo is our version mascot. It’s the symbol of the region’s monarch. Maybe for a third version.

I have doubts. I don't see them introducing another mega-like mechanic, and especially not giving it to mons that already have megas. Or doing much of anything with mythicals

Might as well pour my initial thoughts on Pokemon Sword and Shield there. More specifically, the starters.

So Galar is based on United Kingdom. I want to see Singapore or Malaysia as a Pokemon region, but Gen 7 has a tropical region anyway.

Scorbunny just looks weird. How do I describe that? It's like a Meowth wearing a bunny mask. Hopefully, its evolved form will look better. Or it becomes a Fire/Fighting.

Sobble is my favorite of the bunch so far, but the name is so silly that it makes ME Sobble. Grookey is fine, it does indeed look like a starter. KAY BYE

Fire: Fire/Fighter (sign) or Fire/Electric Water: Pure water or Water/Ghost (Chameleon) Grass: Pure Grass, Grass/Fighting or Grass/psychic

The German names of the starters are:

Gras: Chimpep (Chimp and pep, a peppy chimp)

Fire: Hopplo (-lo probably from "Lohe" an archaic word for flame, so a hopping flame)

Water: Memmeon (a combination of "Memme" = Wuss/Wimp and Chameleon, so a cowardly chameleon)

Based on the names I expect the water-starter's line to become Water/Dark unless it is one of these lines that invert their initial theme.

With the grass starter both German and English translations mention it being mischievous and curious, so I expect it to either become a Grass/Dark or Grass/Psychic type (for the latter the stick it carries could become something like a sage's staff or a magnifying glass if they go for a Sherlok-esque angle).

The fire starter will almost certainly be a Fire Figther, so I guess we will get the Fighting-Dark-Psychic inverse spiral once again.

[up][up], [up] Why not a Fire/Fairy? It seems cute (in fact, all the starters are Cuteness Overload).

Visually, it looks better than I expected. Maybe it's just the setting, but the art style gives off a very "fairy tale picture book" vibe.

My only gripe so far is that it looks like we still only have fixed camera angles. I yearn for the day we'll get our full 3D Pokemon game with a freely rightstick-controlled camera.

I wonder if the game will feature any HUD elements that would normally have gone on the bottom screen. It would be pretty neat to have Pokemon status indicators up in the corner, for example.

...what the?

The fire/water/grass starters is starting to get played out.

Let's try a new rock/paper/scissor startup. Like fighting/psychic/dark. Or rock/fighting/flying

You know, with the new region being based in Britain, and the new games being named Sword and Shield, I wondered if the legendaries would be based on Excalibur and Avalon, but the latter is a sheath.

I do think that's a possibility of Scorbunny's evolved form being Fire/Fairy as Fairy-type is associated with the moon, and there's a folklore of moon rabbits. But its design tells me that it's more likely to be part Fighting-type when it evolves.
