The Mareep line would be pretty nice, especially after I've seen so much fanart of Mareep and Wooloo together. The Skiddo line would also be pretty neat. It would be nice to see more of the farm animal based Pokemon in the games, especially when Mudsdale was already featured. Plus, I'd be tempted to try raising a Skiddo again. I tried to do that in my X team, but I decided to go with something else, so I may try again sometime down the road.

The Rockruff line would also be nice. Seeing Rockruff or Lyncanroc in the Wild Area would be pretty neat. The Skrelp line would be nice since it's one of my favorite sixth generation Pokemon. The Meinfoo line would also be cool. It's a pretty good Fighting type Pokemon and I could see it fitting within the Galar region quite nicely.

I’m assuming I don’t have to put Ditto in my five since it is in the Galar Dex for breeding and the Honedge line since it could be argued it fits the Galar theme. ;) Has to be a sure bet.

Since Eevee is likely in it I can omit Glaceon, but these are my favorites in no particular order:

  • Volcarona line
  • Gastrodon line
  • Sandslash line
  • Girafarig
  • Ribombee line

Actually this brings up a question, if a pokemon that had an alolan form is in the dex, wouldn't their alolan form be in the game as well? Since it's a different form rather than a separate pokemon.

All right if I'm picking 5 then it would no doubt be these (with me having no idea of what old mons have already been confirmed since I'm trying to go about things as blindly as I can this gen)

Male Nidoran line (I was so upset that you face one in Gen 7 on their version of the nugget bridge but then can't catch one yourself in game???)

Litwick line
Milotic
Scyther/Scizor
Larvesta/Volcarona

These are easily some of my favorites, and ones that mean the most to me.

No. Because Alolan forms are Alolan.
