    ......how on Earth does that look like it's made from porcelain?

    Ill agree with it's shape seeing very elephant like. And I'm hopeful it is in fact an elephant ( a /Water and/or /Fire one would be awesome at that).

    But I cannot understand the obsession with saying it's a teapot elephant or this claim it "appear to be made of porcelain".

    Admittedly, from memory, it looked more like that than when I review the actual picture. And it's not porcelain, but its orange colour is somewhat clay-like, and the angle at which the snout of its trunk bends looks very rigid, which I think it what gave people a teapot vibe, especially prior to us having an actual teapot pokemon. Looking at it more closely now though, it looks more like the end of the trunk is curled in like a cinnamon bun, than jutting out like a spout, so it may well be more of a straight-forward elephant than its generally been given credit for.

    In my opinion the fish is 100% going to be a new Pokemon. Why create it just to be a projectile for Cramorant, when they could have used a pre-existing fish Pokemon. Plus the fish Cramorant uses have to come from somewhere, meaning they have to live somewhere in nature.
    I honestly don't understand the position of it not being a Pokemon. What else it is supposed to be? Somebody tried to compare it to the Slowbro situation, but that doesn't work because Shellder is a Pokemon.
    As to why they haven't revealed it together with Cramorant...well they haven't revealed Impidimp officially yet either. They probably want us to guess about it.

    I wonder if it'll be like the Shedninja situation where evolving Cramorant gives you two Pokemon, a bird evo and a fish.

    That still wouldn't work, because unless the fish is living inside Cramorant, it has to come from somewhere.

    Since the website description mentions Sirfetch'd dueling with Escavalier, my hopeful bet is that its Shield counterpart will be a nimble warrior that rivals Accelgor.

    So if Sirfetch’d is exclusive to Sword, what’s exclusive to Shield?

    I personally believe it will be a Chatot evolution.

    Sirfetch'd seems like a strange choice to be Sword-exclusive. It does have a sword, but it also has a shield...? It's never been version exclusive before now either so there's no hint as to what pokemon may be a counter Shield-exclusive. Looking at Farfetch'd appearances in the core series, the only pokemon it's been vaugely paired with is Spearow, through trades in RBG and FRLG. Spearow and Fearow haven't been shown yet, but I don't think that's enough for them to be the partner to Farfetch'd.

    Has there been times in the past where a new pokemon has been a version-exclusive "rival" with an older pokemon?

    I'm interested to see more version exclusives though, or even more information on Zacian and Zamazenta (even their types I'm desperate .n. ). There's not been a lot of differences revealed yet aside from the gyms, I still haven't even picked a version yet

    Sword-exclusive weapon-wielding Sirfetch'd evolves from a single stage pokemon that entirely changes its typing, so maybe its counterpart would be a Dragon Dunsparce evo?

    One would have to assume that it's shield-themed, wouldn't you?

    Counterpart for Sirfetch'd should be a Delibird evolution since both are weak flying types.

    But I think it also could be a Dunsparce evolution, especially if it becomes part Dragon so they can go the Knight vs Dragon route.
    Preferable typing would be Ghost/Dragon.

    Chatot from the leak could also work.

    But Sirfetch'd has a sword AND a shield, so I guess it doesn't have to correspond with the game title. I simply think about a knight vs. dragon theme.

    Sirfetch'd's Shield counterpart will obviously be an evolution for Shuckle, to even further boost its defenses with whatever shield it'll have.

    Nah, honestly, another weak bird like Delibird or Chatot (as mentioned here) getting an evo would be cool to see. I also like the knight vs dragon idea, so Dragon-type Dunsparce or something would be very much welcome. I can't see us NOT getting something in Shield to correspond to Sirfetch'd in Sword.

    I've also seen speculation of Sirfetch'd being a potential Pokémon for Bea, so a Ghost-type regional evolution for Allister could also be cool. And it could be anything really, seeing how Normal/Flying became pure Fighting in this situation.

    What makes Chatot a candidate for a defensive based Galarian evolution? There’s no shields of sorts on it!

    I could see Chatot’s eighth note head becoming sharper (...haha) as a sort of sword-like attribute. Though that’d make it more fitting for Sword, and you’re right in that there’s not really any obvious place where a shield could be. Maybe they could go for a sort of ‘opposite’ theme (think Reshiram & Zekrom).
