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

Hi guys, quick question, can we get the gigantimax at the lower stages or is it just the final stages, for instance, can I get a Rookidee that can gigantimax once it evolves into Corviknight or is it only a Corviknight from a raid that can gigantimax??

Interesting to see someone considers Black 2 and White 2 as their favorite, considering, if I recall correctly, that was the one with the lowest review scores in the west. I suppose things will always be seen differently from the creators' perspective though.
They were criticized a little unfairly in retrospect. It did have some flaws that were rightly critiqued, but the reviewers tried to compare it more to GSC then a traditional sequel, so they docked it for lacking things like new Pokémon even though those things were not promised and shouldn't have been expected. I feel that if it wasn't for that, they would've gotten the typical average scores that Pokémon is known to get.

Ok so I just finally got my game! I love it so far and just let me say that that little squirrel is way cuter than it looked in the leaked images... I love it!

I can't believe no one is talking about the recent Chinese Riddler leak that happened a few days ago, which deals with the upcoming expansions.

I’ve been trying to avoid leaks for Gen 8 & try to go into the games as blind as possible, but if something did come out for the expansions give it a few weeks & then Pokétubers will spread it all across the Internet -_-

Usually it's better to not talk too much about Chinese Riddler or Affleck style leaks until at least a couple of things from it are proven to be true. Keep them in mind for sure, but only get a real discussion going once a bit more info comes out that seems like it ties in with the leak.

I still wouldn't put it past some people like aDrive, Verlisify, or Mudkip Memo to start talking about the Chinese Riddler leaks before that happens though

Plus, we don't really hear stuff like leaks, crackpot game theories, or trivial updates until official news starts to slow down

I've never liked "riddle" leaks to begin with. Even if they are true you won't know for sure what they mean until the actual info is revealed, which kind of spoils them being spoilers/leaks to begin with.

I've personally choose to not put much faith in most leaks after Rayman for Smash. (Which wasn't a leak.) There is only one leek I put my faith in to, but it's Farfetch'd....

Hopefully because the Sword/Shield prerelease period opened up many multiple eyes as to how much rubbish most of that was.

That's precisely the point of "riddle" leaks. Since the meaning is obfuscated, you can connect the dots to make it mean whatever you want it to mean regardless of how the creator intended.

Or, of course, the creator of the leak might not have intended anything at all except to get some attention.

I was only focused on the Affleck leak since that was the most accurate.

I wonder about the credibility of the Riddler these days since his post seemed to just have piggybacked the Affleck leak before him.

Was the riddler leaker the one who leaked SM by posting a pic of Litleo vs Zubat?

Does anyone have hope we might still see a new eeveelution in upcoming expansion packs? Or a new idea shadow Pokémon.
I’d be doubtful on shadow mons, and in truth I am doubtful on eeveelutions, but I’d be all for a new Eevee. Fighting would fit the Isle of Armor well, and maybe Rock for Crown Tundra. Itd be really cool if they did one for each expansion

A new Eevee isn't totally impossible; especially with all the regional variants and evolutions flying around, but I feel like they're probably done with Eevee. It has like 8 different evolutions already. It'd be cool to eventually have one for every type, but if that was their intention, they would have given us more than just Sylveon in X/Y, at least 1 new one in Sun/Moon, and probably a couple more already in Sword/Shield; they wouldn't have waited.

Again, not impossible, but I do feel like they would have already shown or hinted something long ago if they had plans for one.

I agree. Slyveon was hinted about a month before XY were announced by the one promo sheet showing off new Pokémon merchandise having it blackened out and placed close to Eevee.

I feel like they aren't anywhere near done with Eevee yet, the Eeveelutions are very popular and they know that. I'd say that they slowed down the rate of making new Eevee Evos because they don't want to use all it's potential too quick, it's a long game.

Yes.

Sword and Shield already sold 16M in two months, now it's time to milk it even more with DLC and popular Pokémon. A new Eeveelution(s) is a perfect way to promote the DLCs, even make its Den only accessible in Isle of Armor/Crown Tundra or evolve it via special item, so people would rather buy it than use the trade feature to get it or its exclusive item.
