lmao i didnt even notice thats funny though

but nah i minorly hope its real because it means zoruas in and ALL THOSE GALARIAN FORMS

Well according to the colors, it has meowth as receiving a galarian evolution but doesn't mention that it also has a galarian form. So there's an inaccuracy already but it could just be a small mistake and it's also the only mistake I see (besides the whole weedle line all being orange which doesn't make sense)

I'm still 50/50 on it myself but I hope it's real because it shows Ledian/Ledyba and the royal nidos as having a galarian form.

Again, a reminder for everyone to take that list with a big, BIG grain of salt. No datamine yet, and the guidebook leaker never posted a list. Plus that image was made quite a while before we got the current ingame leaks.
But, I'm glad you're happy with what we get, even if it is true. I honestly would be too, even if it means missing out on my pal Whiscash...

Well, I also recall Blitzle and Zebstrika scoring pretty low on a Pokemon popularity list from Japan awhile back, so I'm not holding my breath. But yeah.

I pray they're not taking popularity as a large factor beyond stuff like Charizard getting more forms... 

That said, Zebras being in the UK WOULD be a tad odd, although it's not like Zebras being in America is much better.

Yeah, I certainly hope so too. Many of my favorites aren't particularly popular. I think the only ones that are are Infernape, Eevee, and Keldeo. And the former is a starter, which naturally gets a bit more love for obvious reasons. And even then, I don't think it's among the more popular starters.

Eevee is Eevee. Basically the most popular Pokemon besides stuff like Pikachu, Charizard, Mewtwo, etc.

Keldeo's popularity does impress me though. He got his own movie, but he's also a mythical whom you only get as a limited event, so he wouldn't have a lot of exposure in the games. And I'm not sure his movie alone could've helped him get 18th in that poll I just mentioned.

And yeah, true, though if we get a region based on Africa at some point, Zebstrika HAS to be there. 😛

I swear Infernape's fairly popular... could be wrong. Keldeo might just be because competitively it's top tier, but I'm not sure. Mythicals score high generally anyways I think.

My favorites... yeah most are decently popular. Zorua (and Zoroark by extension) is my number 1 and they're not terrible popularity wise, especially with the rise of Gen 5's popularity overall. Gardevoir is already confirmed and... is Gardevoir. Rhydon's also confirmed and is a Gen 1.
Tangela I'm slightly worried about... it's a Gen 1, but an unpopular one. I feel like they'd cut it in the first batch if they cut any Gen 1 mons. Tangrowth doesn't help popularity wise... Arbok too.

Infernape used to be rather popular, mainly for looking cool and being arguably the best Fire starter and one of the best starters period. Then...hidden abilities were introduced and Blaziken, its main competition, was given a much better one. 😕 I've always disliked Blaziken and thought it was ugly and boring. This just made it worse for me. I was proud one of my favorite Pokemon was actually getting lots of love...now it doesn't anymore thanks to that.

As for Keldeo, maybe. Who knows.

I see. Gardevoir is pretty popular. I don't like it though, because it gets too much weird fanart. And it always just looked kind of meh to me. I very much prefer Gallade, who actually looks super cool imo, and he has a more unique typing. I have Sinnoh bias too, and don't like Hoenn.

Hah, I actually find Gardevoir really enjoyable to draw. On model and tastefully, obviously. I similarly dislike the vast majority of the fanart.
Shout out to this twitter for having wonderful fanart including plenty Gardevoirs and a Gallade recently. Pretty new twitter account.

I actually never cared for either of the evolutions until I started drawing Gardevoir. It's been in my top favorites ever since.
Gallade I have no distaste for, but I always thought it's weird sphere waist was odd. Otherwise a solid design in my books (although it's Mega is a bit too overdesigned to me).

I also have no bias between Gen 3 and 4. 5 is my only Gen with a positive bias lmao, maybe USUM a smidge just because I enjoy singing it's praises.

That is pretty good fanart. I saw a Mega Lopunny there! Sweet. Love me some Lopunny. I think it's really cute.

Gen 7 is my fav after gen 4, so I agree that one's great!

I like Corvinknight's pre-evos, the first one it's so cute ❤️

Also, the Imp's Demon-like final evolution; for some reason I really like his aesthetic xD

That list on the first page is definitely fake (if it wasn't confirmed as fake already) with the confirmation of Stunfisk having a regional variant when the list said it would be absent.

I like ice/bug family a lot and I'm intrigued by the bug/physic line too. The fishes are whatever to me and the rodents are ugly af.

I really love the Stunfisk Galar form. Honestly I like all the starter evolutions too. Can't say much about CInderace until we get a better picture.

Awwwww man. Rip my Galar Phanpy/Litleo dream. I still hope we get at least 85% of the cast returning. 

As for the newcomers, I adore the snow moth, and the ladybug line looks unique enough. Barracuda line (or pike I dunno) is... there. Pretty disappointed by the squirrels. Only the latter one looks like an English red squirrel, and it suffers from “let’s make the next stage fat and/or stupid” syndrome that many of the evolutions of regional mammals suffer from.

Squirrel2 looks like a literal cartoon character. Not Disney, but certainly derivative.

I'm curious as to what Scorbunny's final evo looks like.

Hopefully something good since Grookey's and Sobble's isn't that great IMO.

Supposedly. People are saying it looks more like a second stage than a third stage.

People (mostly just me but I've seen people agree) say it looks more like a second stage, but is the third stage for sure. The guidebook leak is real.

also gonna throw out the alternative art we have for intelleon rn again

I must say the only disappointment to me so far this gen have been the starter evolutions, which is great. Yamper's is adorable, Galarian Ponyta and Rapidash are amazing, and just yeah. The pokemon have mostly been really good so far! I'm kinda excited!

Technically they were never announced, but a month ago it was found that the Japanese Dynamax picture site has codenames for all of its Pokémon based on their evolutionary stage:

  • Scorbunny: Usagi1
  • Sobble: Chameleon1
  • Grookey: Gorilla1
  • Yamper: Inu1
  • Rolycoly: Sekitan1
  • Wooloo: Wool1
  • Corviknight: Gcommondori3
  • Alcremie: Gcream2
  • Morpeko: Pospika
  • Polteageist: Teacup2
  • Gigantamax Drednaw: Gkame2
  • Duraludon: Haganedoragon
  • Gossifleur: Touwata1

Alcremie, Drednaw, and Polteageist all have a 2, which indicates that they all have preevolutions. All of the Pokémon with 1 have evolutions, Corviknight has two preevolutions since it has a 3, and Morpeko and Duraludon are standalone because they lack numbers.
