If you could pick five old Pokémon for the Galar Pokédex...

They might also introduce a new bovine just like they introduced a new sheep.

As for what I would like to see survive the Galar checking station?

Pancham
Houndour
Noibat
Tyrunt
Litleo (lion king's about to come out FFS)

As much as I'd want something like Alolan Ninetails in, it wouldn't make sense lore wise. I suppose they could have simply made an "Alolan safari area" where special exotics are transported in. There are many more I'd like to have seen, (like Snivy or Sandile) so just 5 is so limiting...

Noibat's also confirmed!

Since there's regular Ninetales in, though, I doubt Alolan Ninetales made the cut. =/

I still think we need more contex of Alolan forms and if their transferable. Sure they are different models, but they count as the same pokemon in the dex, just another form, not unlike certain form changes

Lillipup (looks like a terrier)
Poochyena (wolves)
Pachirisu (squirrels)
Kricketot (moustache)
Bunnelby (rabbits)

I especially want to see Kricketot in here, because I feel like it just suits Galar so well.

Well, if a bunch of pokemon were cut for the sake of time, it wouldn't make sense for them to work on the models for forms unobtainable in the game. And if they did... then you can imagine a lot of people gonna be pissed that Alolan forms got in for no good reason but their favorite pokemon didn't.

People would already be pissed pokemon like Goldeen get to stay. Besides even LGPE got to keep alolan forms despite having just the 151

LGPE also had mega evolutions and didn't update animations, to my knowledge, and it's quite different to be mad at a pokemon that actually appears in the game versus several pokemon making the cut that don't even appear in the game despite that being the criteria for pokemon to be transferrable. There are 18 Alolan forms. That's 18 pokemon that they would have to work on the animations for that wouldn't even technically be available in Sword or Shield. Goldeen at least appears in the wild. The read that would happen here is basically "That's time spent animating 18 pokemon that could have been spent on pokemon that actually appear in the game."

I love regional variants, but if they're going to cut pokemon, then don't waste time on Alola's unless they appear in Galar. Because it just wouldn't be fair.

I feel that's something they'd do though. Doesn't help that we already 3 pokemon that have alolan form confirmed in the game. Being Raichu, Vulpix, and Dugtrio. Not even sure all 18 forms will be included either.

I forgot about Meditite, but I’m not sure who I’d remove.
