See phoopes post here which links to the "Affleck leak", which points out that Sobble's evolution is going to be the spy-themed Intelleon. The Affleck leak was 100% spot-on, suggesting it came from a beta tester earlier in the year.

I'm hesitant to link to Fireden directly because it redirected to an onion.ws site, which makes me fear it's a domain hijack.

I'm disappointed with Galar Ponyta's typing because we had the perfect candidate for the first Fairy/Fire Type and just...nope.

I'm also worried because historically, regional variants don't change much by way of stats from the originals, and Ponyta and Rapidash don't exactly have the base stats to hang around the ranks of such a special-oriented type as Psychic with the evolution only having base 80 Special Attack. Base 100 Physical attack might be workable if they got access to Psycho Cut, but good luck with this line getting anything but Zen Headbutt for physical Psychic, if even that going by the precedent set from Incineroar getting Fire Punch by tutor.

I like Galarian Ponyta a lot, but this thing needs either a different type or a stat overhaul for me to not be worried about usability, and knowing gamefreak, we won't get either.

I think we have real leaks this time. This just appeared in the fireden archive.

Spoiler: show


If fake, that's the most spot-on artwork I've found.

Charizard:

Spoiler: show


'zard looks like some Yu-Gi-Oh! dragon. I forget which.

My gut reaction is I like 'em, especially the Meowth and Charizard, but when you take a step back it's annoying and disappointing.

Annoying, because Gigantamax is being awarded to the so-called "shillmons", already heavily lavished and promoted Pokemon.

Meowth/Persian have Alolan forms and are allegedly getting a Galarian form.
Pikachu has an Alolan form and three exclusive items.
Eevee's got eight (possibly more coming) evolutions alongside an exclusive item.
Charizard...two Mega Evolutions, and now a Gigantamax form the other Kanto starters aren't getting.

The rich get richer, especially if you're a Kanto Pokemon.

One of the reasons I hated Mega Evolutions is that they weren't true buffs to Pokemon, they were 4th stage or 3rd stage evolutions and that presumably meant those Pokemon would not get real evolutions or further buffs because of Megas. Clearly, that was naiive, since GameFreak isn't going to shy away from giving privileged Pokeon more privilege.

I don't hate Gigantamax as a concept. Turning Pokemon into Kaijumon isn't the worst gimmick in the world. But it was bastardized beyond that into Dyanamax in a stupid attempt at buffiing every Pokemon, and stuff like this is more proof of that. You could have given the Sinnoh starter trio Gigantamax forms, but with unevolved or NFE Pokemon on the table, that kind of improvement is looking less likely by the day.

I'll say this. Tyranitar, Hydreigon, Aerodactyl, Blastoise and Volcarona need Gigantamax forms, and they need to turn into Godzilla, Ghidora, Rodan, Gamera and Mothra.

I'm still holding to the headcanon that Dynamax is artificial Gigantamaxing to try and make some equal footing thing.

I agree with a lot of this.

The other issue is, of course, if you absolutely love one of these gigamax forms, it's more or less gonna be completely gone in the next gen, the way megas and z-moves have gone. I bet in 10 years we'll have a ton more Charizard forms and versions and etc. Meanwhile Meganium, Typhlosion, etc will still be considered to not exist by GF.


Also you need to have Lets go Pika/Eevee for the new Pikachu/Eevee forms and that's such a crock of shit, lol.

Set rotation makes me bitter because I'm use to Yu-Gi-Oh! which was the same game with minimal changes from when it was introduced up until the introduction of Link monsters. All new changes simply layered on top of the original game, they didn't change how the fundamentals and prexisting mechanics worked.

It looks like Butterfree is getting the Mothra treatment, rather than Volcarona:

Spoiler: show



Butterfree needed this more than Volcarona just because it and Beedrill were the two worst fully-evolved Pokemon. Butterfree originally had Psychic-type moves as a reference to the psychokinetic Mothra.

Come to think of it, there hasn't been a single Alolan/Galarian Kanto Pokemon I haven't liked. I think I was most tepid toward Alolan Golem, but I don't hate it.

My beef with the Kanto Megas was that they were overdesigned. Charizard X and Y had more spikes, Venusaur more flowers, vines and spots, Blastoise more guns. There's nothing edgier than adding more sharp angles.

M22 "Armoured Mewtwo" also has more spikes, versus the simple form-fitting outfit of the original Mewtwo Strikes Back. Those designs were needlessly busy.

Most of these Galarian forms are simple. Giga Pikachu is literally an overweight Pikachu and Giga Eevee needs a trim. The most complicated of the new redesigns, Galarian Weezing, has an obvious creative theme behind its changes.

Bright spots amid blemishes like Duraludon and Morpeko.

In other news, alongside all the pseudo dragons making it into the Galar dex as version exclusives, pseudo-legendary is now an official term.

We have a confirmed Gigachamp.

He's one of the silhouettes in the Gigantamax mural.
