I’m praying the iron treads and great tusk names are temporary and like the original UB code names we got before release:
  • Nihilego (codenamed UB-01 Symbiont)
  • Buzzwole (codenamed UB-02 Absorption)
  • Pheromosa (codenamed UB-02 Beauty)
  • Xurkitree (codenamed UB-03 Lighting)
  • Celesteela (codenamed UB-04 Blaster)
  • Kartana (codenamed UB-04 Blade)
  • Guzzlord (codenamed UB-05 Glutton)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're just nicknames.

According to Pearlenthusiast, they're the official names.

(This is the person whom, with Khu, gave us the compiled list of returning Pokemon.)

Tiny detail I loved: clothing brands are back. That's from DENSOKU.

Would this be the first time a Pokémon since Ho-oh has had more than one word in its official name? (Ho-oh technically two words, hyphenated).
Type: Null, Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, Tapu Lele, Mime Jr., Mr. Rime...

I checked the JP site, and Future Donphan is 「鉄の轍」(iron track) while past Donphan is 「偉大な牙」(great fang).

There are others citing Khu saying all the Future Pokemon have Iron in their name. I can't be assed to look through their twitter to find where they would have said that tho. I'm taking it as is.

If anything, I’m glad that the Charizard event confirms that marks are back. They were one of my favorite features from SWSH since they made my pokémon feel unique whenever they came out of their pokéballs & I kind of liked collecting them more than I liked collecting shinies

Also, I personally don’t care if “Great Tusks” & “Iron Treads” are the Donphans’ actual names since that’s what nicknames are for. If I catch them I may just nickname them a proper pokémon name like “Pummelphant” & “Motoderm”

New Donphan are cool but I’m more into the PLA & BDSP Rotom Phone Cases. They look sick.

Like both Donphans variations though I prefer the look of the mammoth-like past version. R.I.P the dream of those hoping something like what was done in BDSP and Legends: Arceus (bonus Mythical Pokemon to catch with save files from other games) but now there is no "pressure" to get previous titles, the Arceus case is my favourite of the bunch.

I really like the Ed Sheeran Celestial song.... and I hate that I like it. Not an Ed Sheeran fan at all, but here he's gone full Eurovision with this song and it's VERY catchy....

So this Future Donphan looks hella weird.

Why are all the future pokemon robots? That is not sitting right with me.

In Gen 5, Black City is all too techy... Pokemon thinks the future is all about steel and electric circuitry.

I think they're supposed to be more techno-organic than full on robots, since they have robotic bodies but (based on Miraidon) they act like regular living organisms

It's not a game Kate.
Some people seem to have forgotten that this isn't the leak thread.
