    Looks like an Ultra Beast.

    I can see Polteageist possibly evolving. But otherwise I think you're correct.

    So far, Alcremie has 5 "toppings" and 8 "flavors". Which means it could have a total of 40 (5 x 8) variations.

    Well then! I was way off base.

    Are these predictions on how they'll be like? (For the record, you mentioned Ribombee, a Pokémon 0.2 meters tall that evolves from something even smaller.)

  6. 40 alcremie seems the most likely to me. then again, that star we see on the cake could be another topping, which would bring us to 48.
    I was hoping for an evolution for alcremie, but i think its looking unlikely

    The Vanillite line could've had these back then. But anyway, I prefer collecting variations similar to Vivillon rather than dull color swaps like they did with Minior and Alcremie.

    Makes me wish Unown had number forms too.

    Oh yeah, different "flavors" for vanillite would've been cool. I agree that the variations are a nice touch. Wish there'd be some other type combos with them or a special moves or something. But hey, it is what it is. Number forms for unown would be interesting, they did add ! & ? in gen 3.

    TBH I pretty much hated how Vivillion's variations were tied to specific regions. I just don't like regionally-locked stuff. Plus my place had a pretty ugly variation and really Vivillion was also just a colour swap, nothing more.
    Likewise I'm not going to go crazy over those colour variations they give Alcremie, sure it's a nice touch and I'm probably going to try to get the Green one if I decide to put ALcremie on my team (pretty unlikely if it doesn't get a proper evolution), but it's not gonna make me like the Pokemon any more.
    And honestly, I'd rather not have them waste effort on new Unown variations, especially in light of the smaller gens and national dex cut.

    I fully agree.

    The fact that different Vivillion patterns were asked for a ridiculous trades, GTS not having the option to filter its' specific patterns and the one you've gotten cannot be bred into the same variation was the deal breaker for me. You were locked behind a situation where you had to ask your friend to breed you one so, you could only get the desired design and nature/IVs.

    I don't mind variations, but I rather wish they would max it out to maximum of 5 (excluding things like Unown who seems to have a purpose to have so many variations). Like I don't mind collecting but it doesn't really adds much to the Pokémon itself, just like Furfrou.

    I like it, just thinking about getting my favourite flavour for my team (possibly).

    janejane6178 XY over SM (ew) ANYDAY!!!! <3 (Anything actually)

    It remind me of Golduck.
    Also, I REALLY hope Polteageist evolves cuz I like it but I tend not to use one staged Pokemon

    What purpose do they serve? Rally the Unown variations are way more pointless than the Vivillion/Aclremie/Florges ones. You can use your favourite varation of Alcremie or Florges on your team, the only purpose the Unown serve is to clog up the box with Pokemon that are utterly useless.
    Actually...I kinda hope Unown isn't in the Galar dex. If they had to cut Pokemon because they couldn't provide all the models for SwSh, I sure hope they didn't waste any time making 26 models for Unown.

    Anyone hoping we get other legendary Pokemon besides the cover mascots? I hope it isn't a X and Y situation where there were few legendaries but more like 6-8 legendaries. I feel like having three of our legendaries be the heraldic symbols of the countries of United Kingdom would be so cool! Like a Welsh Dragon Legendary representing Wales, a Lion legendary representing England and a Unicorn legendary representing Scotland. I don't know what the heraldic symbol would be for Ireland but having our three legendaries based on these heraldic symbols would be awesome in my opinion!

    The Models are the same, It's the textures of all the pokemon that's been updated, Giving Unknowns very simple design I'd say updating the textures would be very easyily done. That said I do think if any pokemon had to be excluded I think Unknown has a high chance just because of how many variations there are.

    Well there is Eternus which will be the 'evil' Legndary, Other than that I hope we see a Trio or Pixie legendary. There's so much storys and myths to go off of for legendaries on a region based in the UK.

    I think it evolves because yamask is a very similiar concept and that one does.

    Yeah that was what I was talking about, I hope our trio is the Welsh Dragon, Lion, and Unicorn so it can be our trio which defends several parts of the Galar region or something.

    By the way what does everyone think this resembles? To me it is an Ultra Beast but it can also be a knight Pokemon?

    For me I want 6 legendries at the most, especially if we get a similar number of new Pokémon to what we saw in Sun and Moon. One of the things I disliked the most about those games was how much of the dex was taken up by legendries and Ultra Beasts.

    As for Northern Ireland, they don't have a national animal so the best bet would probably be something like a red deer with a shamrock heavily infused into the design.
