Oh look, a checklist leak from 4chan:
"hello everyone, this seems like the best place to share what I know about the new pokémon titles so here I am. I wasn't originally planning on posting this but since stuff happened, not going to go into specifics, here's what I know.
a special wristband is given to you and Hop from Leon as soon as you choose your starter. it can be used to Dynamax your pokémon.
a brand new poké ball called Giga Ball will be introduced, however it can only be used in Raid Battles. you will receive 15 Giga Balls from Sonia at the beginning of your adventure.
the regional bird is inspired by a nightingale and is called Humo, it has a pretty predictable design.
Ponyta, Natu, Misdreavus and Blitzle will all have a Galarian Form.
four new pokémon inspired by The Beatles: Donkoth, Chilldrain, Octotar and Nitemite. they are all going to play an instrument.
Skwovet and Greedunt are version exclusives. Skwovet will be available in pokémon Sword and Greedunt will be available in pokémon Shield.
the final starter types are: Grass/Ground, Fire and Water/Ghost.
Team Yell is working for a company owned by the Royal Family of Galar, they get paid to follow Marnie around.
the main reason why Hop decides to start his adventure is because he's tired of being in Leon's shadow and his main goal is to defeat him.
Bede is Oleana's son which is why Chairman Rose endorses him. Bede will use the starter that is going to be stronger against yours.
gyms are Milo (Grass), Nessa (Water), Kabu (Ground), Opal (Fairy), Bea or Allister (Fighting and Ghost), Gerard (Steel), Sierra (Psychic) and Oria (Poison).
potentially, every single pokémon can be obtained in Raid Battles. GF is currently planning to have weekly online Raids alongside with events hosted by local retailers.
Zacian and Zamazenta are both pure Steel. Eternatus is Steel and Dark.
the Galar Pokédex contains 634 pokémon, 111 of those being the new ones."
