I'm aware since the first thing my mind went to is the "travelled through time and space" description on a transferred Pokémon, which is what I'd assume would make most sense for Hisuian forms. For the other replies suggesting they'll obviously return, I mean you honestly can't be so sure since...
The reason why I'm wondering if it would be possible is because LA is set in the past, and I'm unsure if the Hisuian forms would still be around for them to make sense appearing in present day titles, unless they haven't gone extinct or pull some "time travel" excuse.
Still conflicted on which one I should get first. I pre-ordered Shield (mainly because of the version exclusives and Allister), but Zacian makes me want to start off with Sword because I prefer it over Zamazenta. I don't know whether to switch or not. :/
So does it seems that the starters will remain monotypes? Because despite Sobble not exactly turning out how I wanted it to be, I’m hoping for a secondary typing to make up for it, but it seems it is staying pure Water, just like how Grookey and Scorbunny will remain. :/
