@Matleo Yes, it's a gargoyle, not a manticore. You can find this very easy through reverse image search on google.

(This is even the exact image, down to the pose and texture, the one in the leak is just squished a little. It's also the very first image when you google "gargoyle")


You can even buy it for $20!
I think he could be referring to the statues from Pokémon Origins found in Brock’s Gym.

I can't think of any ideas that would necessarily fit the British theme, but here's a couple of regional variant ideas I had:

Ekans/Arbok become Poison/Psychic with a hypnosis theme
Venonat/Venomoth become Bug/Psychic
Ponyta becomes Fairy and Rapidash becomes Fairy/Flying, becoming a pegasus
Noctowl becomes Psychic/Flying (Hoothoot's already been shown in its original form, but I don't think Noctowl has)
Ledian becomes Bug/Fighting and resembles a boxer, possibly getting an evolution
Sunkern and Sunflora become Grass/Fire, possibly getting an evolution

Considering the fact that only one Unova Pokémon and *no one Kalos Pokémon got Megas and Alola noPokémon did, I’d like to see them get decent representation in the regional forms. As for specifics, I’d like to see:
  • Galarian Minncino. A post on r/pokemon about red Minncono (it was made before regional forms were confirmed and was just about a pallet swap) made me want a Galarian Minncino based on the red squirrel. Now, normal Minncino has already been revealed but I think a regional form could work. British red squirrels have had their numbers decreased by invasive grey squirrels brought in from North America. So you could have a few red Galarian Minncino spread around the region while there’s an abundance of Unova Minncino, paralleling the rivalry between the two squirrel species.
  • Galarian Aegislash
  • Galarian Minior that is fossil or geode based
Edit: *I forgot about Mega Diancie. Thank you to @MunchlaxKing88 for pointing that out.

Mega Diancie is a thing, even though it's very forgettable.

  • I'd like to see a variant of Mr. Mime and Mime Jr. where they are actors. Theater was a big part of Britain back in the day, and I'd like to see really any humanoid pokemon be one, although I think Mr. Mime would fit quite well. I don't know what the type would be, maybe Normal/Fairy of Psychic/Normal.
  • This definitely won't happen considering it's a legendary and it's from Alola, but a Galarian Stakataka would be cool. It would look more like a Gothic house or something. just a thought.
  • I'd like to see a Galarian Zebstrika where it us a unicorn and a Electirc/Fairy type. The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland, just a thought.

Very much yes to this. Before Galarian forms were revealed, I was worried about Blitzle not being shown in any trailers in fear of it not being in these games (again... No love for my zebra since its home region). But now I'm happy it hasn't been shown yet, in hopes it gets new love with an awesome Galarian form. I could easily see it and Rapidash being version exclusive Galarian forms, like Sandshrew and Vulpix were.

This bagpipe Shuckle would be lovely. It can be flying/rock type.

This regional variant of Flabebe would also fit in Galar perfectly.




Some other ideas I had were:
Water/Steel Qwilfish based on a sea mine.
Water/Fairy Stantler based on the kelpie.

I hope the Galarian forms are mostly natural mutations and references, as opposed to pop-culture references or blatantly comedic stereotypes like Weezing’s facial hair.


And GameFreak, please less facial hair.
See I'd totally use someone like Alolan Golem if he didn't have a moustache.

Every single regional form with extra hair looks drastically improved over the original. I'm not exaggerating, they really are that good. From Alolan Dugtrio and Alolan Golem to Galarian Weezing.

Of course, most of the regional forms look better than the original anyway. But when they use the extra hair, it really adds something good to the Pokemon.

Pffth, they don't look improved, just more ridiculous.

I need them to stop putting facial hair on everything because we already have enough silly regional variant designs.

Not really in some cases. Galarian Weezing's beard looks so like an actual beard that it looks less like smoke.
Most of them look ridiculous, and in Dugtrio's case it’s literally the only difference from the original other than darker ground rocks.

We’ve had enough facial hair forms to last us for now.
