    Well we got new people revealed aside from the protagonists! So discuss your thoughts about em and speculate and whatnot.

    Leon, imo, does have an aura of being a villain. I just wish he dropped that clunky outfit of his haha.

    From the looks of the gym leader and the champion it looks like they're going too over the top with the football/sport theme, the professor and her assistant look good though.

    I really like that Leon and Hop are brothers. I like it when important characters have a background and a connection to the world rather than just randomly existing.

    And I adore Professor Magnolia! Grandma Professor! Sonia kinda reminds me of Sansa/Sophie Turner from game of Thrones.

    Do we have a name on the Grass Gym Leader yet?
    I actually don't mind the "sports" element to his and Leon's designs. Particularly Leon looks very cool and I like how the people in the Grass stadium are wearing the "team colour"
    I wonder if we can customize the sports uniform we apparently have to wear...

    The main protags are LOADED with actual personality and overall "human-ness"!

    Yes! Another female professor.

    shoz999 Do you wanna try a good Tapu Cocoa? My treat.

    I'm calling it! The Pokemon Champion is the villainous mastermind behind whatever evil team Sword & Shield has! GameFreak made him suspiciously too heroic-looking from a design perspective in that trailer.
  7. Mr.Fiend

    Mr.Fiend She is too precious for this world.

    His name is milo.

    My only dissapointment is that, basing on the trailer, the rival chooses the Starter weak to yours:-/

    Me guesses a second rival is onboard.

    Possible, still it would be nice to have your first battle against the strong type against yours.

    Also it seems professor's granddaughter also is a Trainer as she has the Dyna thing on her arm.

    I think so too. Hop will be like Hau and the other one will be like Gladion.
    The official website has got this bio:
    Hop is Leon’s younger brother and will become one of your rivals. He and you are neighbors, and you’ll begin your journeys on the same day. He aims to become Champion, just like his older brother did.

    I’m so glad we got another female Professor! It’s a nice change of pace from the younger ones, and she has a good design (I love the Corviknight cane). Sonia is pretty cute, Hop is alright, Leon has the dumbest outfit in recent Pokémon history and I love him. Already calling him being the evil team leader, though.

    Ah good we're all agreed that Leon's probably evil. Gonna have to get a better look at Hop, he looks like a Sobble trainer

    He's like a Lysander, Lance and Kukui mix to me

    Miar I got one right!

    >Leon (JP: Dandé which is like Dandy but dandier)
    I'd've preferred Arthur since Lance is already taken (Ooh, there's a thought. What if Lance is from Galar?)
    Also, Charizard?? Really, GF?

    Dude, what? I get it, he's like Hau or Benga (Alder's grandson), or maybe more fleshed out. But HOP?

    >Magnolia and Sonia
    OK, I like them. The prof's a sweet old lady with a Corviknight cane who researches dangerous, super-huge Pokemon.

    Calling it now, on 6/5/19: Eldergoss's Dex number is #831. If I'm right, I'll make this my sig.

    Leon looks dope. Might be my favorite Champion since Cynthia. Hoping that Charizard is not his ace

    Hop looks like he’ll be one of my favorite rivals. Cue the complaining that’s he’s not mean lol

    Both of the aforementioned characters look like they’re related to Iris

    Had a feeling the next Professor would be a female. She looks nice yet sassy.

    Sonia gives me huge Lillie vibes

    Milo looks like he has potential to be one of Ash’s traveling companions (can we stop getting the same character archetype for Grass Gym Leaders?)

    Is Professor Magnolia wearing a Darkinium Z on her neck? If so, nice nod to Alola. Bout time someone other than Kanto got a mention.

    Mr.Munchlax Thunder Trainer

    I’m calling it now: Sonia’s going to be the twist evil team leader for Sword & Shield

    Wait, what do you mean?

    I'm still calling it. Leon is the main villain.

    He just looks like a smug a-hole who would put up a huge stank about losing, and would probably do something reckless to remain the most powerful trainer.

    Remember when everyone called the aether foundation being the baddies and then they all turned out to be correct? History seems to be repeating itself.
