• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

    For more information, see this thread

Have there been any times where Pokemon were revealed in the expo demos?

Taken Yamper and Impidimp for example. They weren't revealed in the June Pokemon Direct, nor are on the official site so we are unsure of their personality and habitats. Both were first seen at E3, where the demo was first played. Have there been any other similar examples?

In Gen V it happened a lot, Pokémon randomly appeared in footage and their existence wasn't confirmed until much later:
-Drillbur and Gigalith (video footage, confirmed 1.5 months later)
-Excadrill, Cofagrigus, Galvantula and Haxorus (video footage, confirmed 2.5 months later)
-Pansage (merchandise leak, confirmed 1,5 months later)
-Tranquill (appeared in the demo, confirmed until the release 2.5 months later)
-Darumaka (appeared in the demo, confirmed until the release 1.5 months later)

In Gen VI, both Mega Kangaskhan and Trevenant weren't seen until release, both were leaked in official footage.

In Gen VII, almost everything appeared in videos and the ones who didn't were confirmed a month later.

Don't forget that Audino was included in the demo, too.

EDIT: Also, Gothitelle, Excadrill and Reuniclus were seen in the Triple Battle reveal feature and went unrevealed for a time. Ribombee was seen in one of the "Train On" videos before being revealed
