I’m 99% sure “regional fake” is quite simply Voltorb, Foongus, Galarian Stunfisk. A fake item aka a mimic.

Diglett is round. This one probably looks like a PokéBall from above, and when you try to pick it up, Diglett springs up out of the ground (hence why the geyser was on the right track) and attacks you for pulling on it.
A hypothesis I can get behind.

I wish someone could summarize all the cracked riddles so far (even if there’re not confirmed)

I just finished updating my Repository Thread this morning:


Let me know if I overlooked one.

As much as I like the idea of past and future forms I think Khu might actually be saying that this popular fan concept isn't real. It's regional fakes because there are no regional forms or at the very least not in the way fans are thinking.

I mostly agree.

However, I find it hard to believe that Diglett will have a regional form again (OK, Meowth had severals, but it is kind of a special Pokemon).
Also, Regional Forms were the theme for May. Khu started the poll with RF to decide the theme for June. It does not make sense to have the same theme twice (even if RF meant Regional Fake in the poll, if Diglett was the one supposed to be leaked, it would still also be a Regional Form), even more considering how he organized his leak calendar.

But maybe I am overthinking this, as a regional form for Diglett also correlates well with Khu retweeting the official Diglett Youtube live.

The chronological order of things is a bit lost to me. So, the theme of May was 'true' regional forms? Not the 'fakes', correct?

If so, which rumours fall under the Regional Form theme, and which under the Regional 'Fakes' one?

Correct. edit: oh, forgot that the calendar indeed mentioned RF & RF for May.

  • Bull and numbers riddles are the Regional Forms riddles (theme of May). Most likely the colored Upa from Steins Gate is also related to the numbers riddle.
  • Theme for June was Starters, but Khu decided to give hints also for the other items of the poll. And since at the time of the poll we were still in May, he commented on RF (but actually meaning Regional Fake and not Regional Form). Just that the geyser diglett fanart has "somehow nailed it". And the morse code was the riddle for understanding that the F from RF meant Fake.

May was both RF+RF, Regional Forms and Regional Fakes. The bull and water/ground were Regional Forms, Diglett was a Regional Fake.

I'll be happy if Khu's riddle is about Diglett not having a regional form. It doesn't need another one. Actually, I can do without it (the whole species) for the entire generation.

I think you may be disappointed by that one.

I wonder what Khu means with regional fakes, I hope it’s related to future forms or something..

Zodiac Khuller? What does Khu mean by this? Did Khu post something about the zodiac theory?

I think it’s just a joke on the zodiac killer
I hope he does kill the Pokémon Zodiac-theory regarding the fire-starters, though.

Hate those endless discussions.

@Articfoxgamez Oh, interesting. I don't know what kind of conclusion I have to draw from that tweet; His way of talking is always a bit vague.

EDIT: This means a Girafarig-evo is hypothetically still possible! :p

So....i just logged on and saw that the Morse code riddle has just been solved. "F means Fake". So, regional fakes? As usual, after cracking one of Khu's riddles, we are left with more questions than answers. What does regional fake even mean?
