The Isle of Armor & The Crown Tundra DLC - RUMOR & SPECULATION Thread [Spoilers]

Kaleido Star FOREVER in my heart <3
Sand worm line, two new eeveelutions, a griffin and a narwhal are a little bit fan servicing, which is suspicious, but eventually GF will need to make these out of sheer running out of ideas, so why not Gen 8? It's possible we get them.
How did he get access to the games, according to his claims?

So for those who can’t access the link, here’s a recap:
•Galarian forms for Zubat and Golbat (he didn’t mention if Crobat got one) (Grass/Flying), Girafarig (Dark/Normal), Ledyba and Ledian, as well as their new evo (Bug/Fighting), Licktung (Lickilicky not mentioned) (Fairy), Larvesta and Volcarona (Bug/Ice), Phanpy and Donphan (Ground/Electric), Slakoth, Vigoroth, and their new evolution (Dark), Surskit and its new evolution (Bug/Fairy), Carvahna (Sharpedo not mentioned) (Water/Steel), Arbok (Ekans not mentioned) (Psychic/Fairy) Venipede, whirlipede, and Scolipede (Bug/Ground)
•Galarian Rapidash is a Pegasus (Psychic/Flying)
•Two pseudos (the leaker says he played Sword, and believes the pseudos are version exclusives) that you get an egg for at a House from someone who has all of the pseudo legendaries. In the leaker’s case, he got a Flying Type Griffin, while the other pseudo is a black puppy that is Dark Type
•While he didn’t mention it being a pseudo, he described a Dragon/Fairy fae Dragon line
•Three fossils: a plesiosaur (Rock/Water), a therizinosaurus (Rock/Grass), and the third one he never saw, but said the fossil was that of a suction cup
•Starters: he said he saw Scorbunny’s middle stage and it was pure Fire, Sobble’s middle becomes Water/Ghost in its second stage, and he did not see Grookey
•Evolutions for things we have seen: Impidimp does get an evolution, Rolycoly gains the Fire Type and is used by the Fire Type Gym Leader. He also said it and Impidimp’s Evolutions can gigantamax
•Lore: there’s a legend of a knight in Galar, who when he died the two legendaries took his sword and shield and now defend the region with them
•Eevee: Gets a Dragon and a Steel Evolution, as well as a counterpart (probably like that of the Pikaclones) that can evolve into three different types
•Miscellaneous new mons: Xenomorph looking Pokémon (Dark/Poison), scarecrow Pokémon (no type given), a pig Pokémon that has at least one evolution that grows wings when it gigantamaxes (Fairy) (Used by Fairy Gym Leader), Single stage narwhal (Ice/Water), mushroom Pokémon (the amount of stages weren’t given) (Fire/Poison), Book Pokémon that erases people’s memories, and stores them on its pages (Normal/Ghost) (it will do this to Hop and you’ll have to help him in the story), Robot pokemon (Fighting/Steel), antlion that evolves into a giant sand worm (Bug/Ground), Yeti pokemon that can gigantamax (Ice), Peacock (Psychic), Cramorant’s Fish is a real pokemon and is Water Type with an evolution, humanoid, moustachioed pokemon (Fighting/Dark), something called Flambino (maybe a flamingo) (no type given)
•Gigantamax form for dragonite
The leaker also said that Rolycoly's evolution looks like a wagon but turns into a train when gigamaxing. And that Impidimp's evolution looked good? Maybe even described it...

So I’m gonna dream this is real for a minute. My team would be Sobble, Corviknight, Impidimp, the griffin, the dragon, and either Rolycoly or the mushroom

New "leak" from Reddit. Someone has spent a lot of time playing the game, but will not state their connections.

-Two forms for the "evil" legendary - which is not evil in any way
-Heracross and Pinsir have a pre-evo that joins their evo line - normal/bug type larvae Pokemon
-Impidimp's evolution is very, very underwhelming. Just a bigger version...
-Sierride is a lion Pokemon that looks WAY too much like Solgaleo
-Lapras's G-MAX is audio-based. G-MAX attack is Sonic Wave.
-Eevee does NOT have any new evolutions. Sorry!
-Anon is a Galar counterpart to Unown, and tie in to the giant glyph on the hillside in the trailers
-Kibarb is a fire type lamb Pokemon. Unsure if evolves but looks plain, so expect it will
-Inkay/Malamar now water/electric type. Similar appearance, with dark blue and orange "hat"
-Some houses lock their doors during the night, especially in less "colourful" areas
-Floatellie can only be found by fishing. Fish Pokemon that looks like fishermans leather boot.
-Aipom is now ice/fighting type. Tail wraps around body, pale blue colour. Fur seems bushier.
-Kecleon is gifted by a trainer, and is blue instead of green. Rest remains the same
-Easy Mode is automatically applied to your save if you have parental controls switched on.

Why would they give Eevee two new evolutions AND make a new Eevee countrpart? Doesnt make an sense
It doesn't have to make sense.

The counterpart thing is what the leaker "thinks" because of the evolution concept being similar to Eevee. The same could be said with the Pika-clones, which are intended to be similar to Pikachu but are not counterparts.

Not necessarily. Pikachu is the same in every language. And Same the Nidoran lines, Lanturn, Togepi line, Skitty line, Regis, Pachirisu, Munna line, Flabébé line, and Meltan lines are some examples of Pokémon sharing the same name in both English and French.
The leaker specifically pointed out that they don't know the English names of the starter evolutions and he named Sobble's evolutions among several other, clearly French Pokemon names. It's obvious that they mean for the names for the French names, whether fake or not.
And all starters and their evolutions had their names translated so far.
So YES, necessarily.

Of all the various things that point towards this being fake a French name for Sobbles final evolution is NOT one of them.

This would be super meh. Game Freak did mention in one of the Gameinformer videos that there are no difficulty settings, so I would say that is a strike against this leak.

The closer and closer we get to release, the more and more "leaks" we will get. So far both of the news leaks sound awful and fake

It sounds like overkill to me, like they were having so much fun coming up with concepts for new Pokemon they forgot they were supposed to be making this believable.

Of course a lot of it sounds really cool, as I said before I'd love it to be real.

Don't forget about 3 Fossils. I like to refer to these kinds of leaks as "Wish Bait". Sprinkle in some hints of confirmed leaks (Affleck), a few concepts for pokemon that haven't been seen but correlate with another (Sandworm), and add wish fulfilling things people have asked for for ages like griffins and dolphins and etc.
