    Fair point.... Still.....

    I don't mind the gorrila bit, just not sure about the big drum part.

    And your source for where this was posted...? It's all well and good to say it was posted a week ago, but you need to back it up with a link to where that was posted. Otherwise anyone could come up with details and claim they had been somewhere a week ago.

    I would really appreciate it if they break the supposed "feminine, masculine...'other'..." pattern in SwSh, mostly because I'm reaaaaaally not a fan of patterns.

    What kinda annoys me about the leak is that it points out that the 4th Gym is Fairy typed....but then it just says the first three are Milo, Nessa and Kabu.... as if we're supposed to know who the frack Nessa and Kabu are... From the trials it kinda sounds like Nessa's water type (plus her name is similar to Naesse, the German word for Moisture) but what's Kabu?

    I think this still from the trailer may be a hint to the credibility of the leak:

    The leak mentions chipmunk Pokémon, and the graphic on the shirt looks pretty close to that.

    AgentKallus That latest episode of Doctor Who though....

    Or Nessa like Nessie as in the Loch Ness Monster, which also points to water type.

    Where did you see a Farfetch'd evolution?

    Now, what's interesting if this turns out to be true is what exactly is a regional evolution? Does this mean these evolutions will not occur in future games, or is it simply new evolutions added a la gen 4?

    Assuming he's not just tripping on his words (ie: "regional evolutions" = "new cross-gen evolution) it's possible that's the shtick to explain why farfetch'd now evolves into sirfetch'd despite not doing so before. It's ~*the region*~ that's inducing it so now they don't have to require a move or item for it to work.

    In theory, anyway. Not sure how the Meowth plays into it. New evolution for Meowth he forgot the name of? Another regional variant in line with Alolan Meowth? Did not actually mean Meowth and just got his words confused with another cat pokemon?

    Summaries of the Starters:
    Those summaries are fitting this rumor's starter evolution.
    Grookey Evo - Gorilla Drummer
    Scorbunny Evo - Bunny Fighter (Humanoid Bunny)
    Sobble Evo - Spy Chameleon

    I wonder if he meant pre-evolution for Meowth? It would be fairly random but we know they had planned one before, and "ball of spiky grey fur" sounds like a tiny kitten to me.

    I wish so much these Direct videos and major reveals would be released on Saturdays, so I could enjoy the new info in real time.

    In the leaks others are saying seem to have been vindicated, were there details of Eeveelutions?

    That'd be nice and I have championed the idea of a 'Sound' type being added, but just because the evil team's name is 'Yell', it doesn't indicate what primary type they use. Only Teams Mamga & Aqua were like that; no other team ever stuck to the theme of their name.
    Team Plasma didn't specialize in Electric
    Team Flare didn't specialize in Fire
    Team Skull didn't specialize in Dark
    Team Rocket & Team Galactic couldn't have even had a type attributed to their name

    Basically, if there was no pattern before, it's unlikely there'd be one now. Again, though, I really would like to see 'Sound' added as a type.

    Oh wow, we actually have a rumor with some credibility to it. That's nice for a change. Let's just remember that this guy could have had some information, and then made up everything else, so this isn't confirmed yet, but it's certainly interesting.

    REALLY hope Sobble's Evoultion is Water/Ghost and not Water/Dark so we don't get another Greninja (i like Greninja don't get me wrong but i want Sobble to have a different typing)

    If these regional evo are true, then I hope that THIS time it won't be restriected only for gen 1 Pokemon *sigh*

    I hope you don't still think this. If you look around on twitter tons more information was discovered which verified he is saying the truth. Even 2 other pokemon were discovered hidden in the trailer that the guy did mention. He was right point blank period.
    Here is some proof for those interested:

    and another one

    By the current standing of things it seems to be pure fire although I am confused about what the typing of the other 2 could be if we take into account the new information we received.
    the spy theme and the big physical monkey. Maybe the spy is dark or poison? IDK
