GALAR REGION Discussion & Speculation Thread

    We do have those big stadiums possibly implying that Gyms are a big deal in Galar, the Gyms in the other games were tiny and seemed more like private battles that people can watch and the winner might be announced. Having it be a big deal that a bunch of people watch in the stands might make Gyms feel more interesting.

    omg I didn't think of the stadiums being little Pokemon Stadium mini game centres! I'd love that so much :D
    I honestly don't know what they'll do in those soccer stadiums... like actually play pokemon soccer in the games?!

    The relic castle with a tree growing out of it looks like it'll be interesting. I've been trying to see if anything could be connected to other regions.

    Closest thing I can think of that it looks like is Dragonspiral Tower for Black and White? Possible link there

    I’m not expecting a Kalos post game, but I’d love for a nod to a connection to Couriway Town. I’m thinking it could go like:
    “Here in the Galar Region, we use trains to get almost everywhere! In fact, the tracks even connect to the Kalos Region!”

    If they don't go for Kalos as second region I hope they make Ireland the post-game and have like 4/5 trial like things with its own champion (Like Red was in HGSS)

    I like the idea as Galar currently looks "Sword Shaped" there may be a second island to the south (Possibly where that long bridge numbered 95 on the map on the previous page) that is shaped like a shield

    Hi there

    I saw someone on another website mention that Galar is also an anagram for Graal, which means the Holy Grail in french.
    Makes sense since we have hints that Shield and Sword will be based on arthurian legends.
    Also, maybe some figures like Arthur, Merlin and the knights of the round table will appear in these games ?

    Maybe we could get the first female villainous leader whose a play on Morgana?

    That be super cool, as I'd love a female leader for the villain team

    Lusamine is the first female leader leading a Villain Team (Aether Foundation; SM).

    Galar could be the first region where it is literally so hard to pin-point the exact location of Pokémon League after Alola's Aether Paradise vs. Glacier Building discussion in Mt. Lanakila, and even you knew it was one of the two. With Unova and Kalos, it was so direct.

    Part of me wishes the league is owned by the royalty, as well as open to the public in restricted area(s), so they watch you and recognize your skill as a worthy trainer.

    Good point she completely slipped my mind

    My guess for the league would either be the tower in PokeLondon or the center building with the crown in the middle city.

    I like the idea of it being the crown building as that is bang in the middle of the region almost like a center point

    I don't get why Aether is even called a villainous team when their actions are actually legit nice. They protect Pokemon! It's only because of Lusamine's poison/intoxication from Nihilego that made her crazy in the past. Otherwise very nice people (and the whole team wasn't even promoted in merchandise in relation to the other villains of the past).

    It would be nice for an actual villainous team to be owned by a female character for the first time though.

    Maybe this time we don't have any League ? Or not under the usual form ? There's that huge tower in London...

    I'm confused, can the area with loads of water be accessed from the bottom area? Cause from what i see it doesnt look that way.

    It seems like you can only get in from the top. What if it's the legendary area? Like you have to get to the central island and pull out a sword or a shield... and the legendary has been there all along. So like sword in the stone mythology.

    Do you mean the lakes/lochs below the industrial town?

    As that looks like it will be accessed by train from the first big town

    Since when animal cruelty is nice? Remember Type: Null specifically being created to fight against the UBs, and dumped in the laboratory until saved by Gladion.

    I can also include the Foundation members willingly chase Lillie to get Cosmog for its death, as well as the Pokémon frozen to death in her room which no one seemed to mind or mentioned at the HQ.
