Eh, ragazzo!
Here are some origin codes discovered recently.

Home* 46
Legends Arceus 47
Brilliant Diamond 48
Shining Pearl 49

*Home Mystery Gifts have been using Sword's Origin Code previously.
I wonder if this is future proofing for gifts that can be sent to multiple games.

Transferring Shaymin into BDSP from Pokémon Legends: Arceus will cause someone in Floaroma Town to give you the Gracidea Flower. Then again, I could be wrong.

Does that mean you can get another one?

No, wait, that item...

...It's the one that allows you to change Shaymin's form, not the one that unlocks the area where you can find and catch Shayman, is it?

In the original games, Professor Oak’s Letter unlocks the event for Shaymin and the Gracidea Flower allows you to change forms.

I’m still on the fence about this game.

No Alolan or Galarian forms
…is disappointing but I can manage.

I’m seriously hoping though for an update with…
Hisuian forms and evolutions after Legends: Arceus drops

A lot of trends have been broken in Generation VIII, some good and some bad (and some good or bad depending on who you ask). Considering DLC expansions were implemented for Sword and Shield, an action Game Freak had never done before, I'd say it's completely up in the air in this regard.

Their overall style seems to be to absorb feedback and address it in post-release updates. Some can be fixed and some cannot. This may be all that there is for Brilliant Diamons and Shining Pearl. Or this could be a No Man's Sky situation where the base game is divisive but gets sharply improved with said updates and patches.

Did they reuse any models from the lets go games or sword shield or was everything redone?

What is the airspeed of an unladen Swellow?
The Lass character animations are the same between the games. look at her pose when she loses.

The Galactic grunts use the same animations as the Team Yell grunts.

So this maybe a sign that Pokemon that are available in BD and SP, but not Sword and Shield can be added. So when the update that allows connectivity with Pokemon Home releases, maybe Sword and Shield will be updated as well, so you'll be able to send all the missing Gen. 1 through 4 Pokemon, which are catchable in BD/SP, to the games. It's just a possibility though. And whether it means BD and SP will be updated so you can bring all Alolan and Galarian forms, as well as all the Gen. 5 through 8 Pokemon available in Sword and Shield to those games, remains to be seen.

I don't think the trainer animations are relevant to bringing them over from Sinnoh to Galar, but I do recognize some of the Pokémon animations common between Sword and Shield and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (and the ones I don't recognize are because I never remembered what they were).

So you just skipped over my entire post lol. Again, there are other pokemon that are Electric pokemon that can use Rain Dance and also have a ground Immunity.

I just don't like it when specialists have a pokemon which is outside of their type. While others may bring up a pokemon like Drapion, at least Drapion is a giant bug for Aaron, Pelipper is random as hell and has nothing to do with Volkner in the slightest and is just as stupid as Octillery.
Name an electric type with Drizzle and I'll redact my post.
