Hi guys, do we know if we can catch pokemon in cities?? They really showed pokemon in cities in the trailers so can we get them or are they just for show.
I haven't seen any locational data about where to catch any of the Pokemon yet
 
Not sure if I missed it but have the teams of Gym Leaders been revealed yet?
Late reply, but I hadn't seen any good team lists before now. This one has most of the relevant story characters.

Only important match I see missing is Nemona's final team.

Thanks a lot. The rematch teams are way better. Interesting choices for terra aces.

Do we know if the Gym Leaders enter the Ace tournament? knowing that you can't rematch them, I am guessing no? Or is it similar to the Elite Four, how you can't challenge them at the league, but you can if they are part of the Ace tournament bracket.
 

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 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

Perhaps the 3rd legendary is slumbering and from it, or its dreams, it creates these Paradox Pokemon?

I still think it's crazy that Brassius doesn't get the tumble weed.
 
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.

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.

Wait…the 3rd Legendary is the Wind Fish?

Do they lift the media ban before release? I feel like in the past Joe was able to begin coverage in the days leading up to game releases but my memory is horrible.
