Thanks a lot. The rematch teams are way better. Interesting choices for terra aces.
I get that the point of this gens gimmick is changing a pokemons type, but I still wish that the gym leaders aces were all Paldean Pokémon, and that they and the elite 4 used more gen 9 pokemon in general
This is in reference to the theory that the paradoxes are not from the past/future but actually imaginary.
The dubious paranormal magazines referenced in the opposite game's paradox Pokédex entries can actually be found in-game. And Sada/Turo states that they aren't exactly sure where the "time machine" is pulling the Pokémon from. The leading theory I have heard is that Sada/Turo read these magazines, imagined that it was what Pokémon from the past/future actually look like and then the "time machine"/third legendary created these Pokémon.
I'm not a ribbon hunter so I don't know all the criteria, but it sounds like they would have to start with that one, build up all the other ribbons on a Mon that came to them with it.This isn't exactly new information, but I haven't seen it mentioned in this thread (did a quick search for ribbon/ribbons).
There are only two new ribbons. Paldea Champion Ribbon which you get for beating the league, and I think other Pokémon can get for winning the ace tournament afterward. And the Once-in-a-Lifetime Ribbon which is quite frankly ridiculous and will give anyone trying to collect all ribbons on Pokémon nightmares for years if it works as theorized.
