I'm seriously thriiled they're adding more new Pokemon and regional variants. Hisuian Growlithe is EVERYTHING. Its just adorable and I'm really excited to see how a Fire/Rock Arcanine will look. Now the real question is will these Pokemon be available in the future?
I actually think there's a possibility we'll be able to see these Hisuian forms and evolutions in modern Sinnoh. There are those Pokemon Hideaways that can be accessed through the Sinnoh underground in BDSP, and I think I recall the Presents mentioning something about rare Pokemon being able to be found in these Hideaways. Maybe these ancient Pokemon went to live in these Hideaways?
If we don't see them there, because who knows if we will, I could see them making an appearance in a region that has a similarly harsh climate to past Sinnoh. It wouldn't be too hard to explain in-universe either. These Pokemon adapted similarly in these other regions, or perhaps they moved or were moved by people to a harsher climate if they weren't adapting properly to the changing environment.
Whether or not we see them catchable in the modern Sinnoh games, I think it would be really neat if we saw a reference to them in BDSP, whether it's a character talking about them or some sort of relic from Sinnoh's past about them.
