Another possibility with the 8th gym leader is that its a multi type gym leader.

Speculation: A racing minigame with a legendary pre-evo as motorbike, which evolves into the mascot.
If it's races, then I wonder what mons the NPCs would use, as I don't think anybody would just have a legendary. Some I can think of are tauros and rhyhorn.

What's the point of having types associated with gym leaders if it's just motocycle races in the end.

EDIT: oh right, it was on the big flags in trailer 2! And Khu just hinted to us that there are three types of flag..
Did he say three? I thought he said we could guess it. The flag thing confuses me because he makes it sound like it's unrelated to gym leaders.

My guess would be five types because the star has five points and the legendaries have five forms.... Don't know why they're typed though.

It is hard to follow between "gimmicks", "systems" and "concepts".

In a first tweet, Khu talked about three new things:
  • One gimmick already teased and that important characters use. Probably the successor to Dynamax and giving Pokemon new forms.
  • A new concept that influence battle
  • A new concept: Regional Fakes

Then in a second tweet he said the flags were a new system, but I can't understand if it is a fourth thing or the new concept that influence battle for example.
Indeed I think it will concern 5 types because of the five point star (and 5 pieces), the one presented in Trailer 2 being Fire.

From Serebii

A new Episode Title has been released via Japanese TV Guides. This episode is due to air on August 5th 2022
Episode 1208: Chloe and Eevee's Potential is Limitless!

Sounds like a conclusion to the Eevee thing in the anime. I'm no longer expecting much, but something to look out for maybe.

Maybe instead of gym leaders and elite four it's all motorcycle races and the champion uses the opposite version legendary.
well that would make more sense to the design of the Pokémon Centers in SV! :unsure:

I mean, Flags can technically be a new system if they mark the gym leaders instead of the buildings, since thats a new system lol.

I think people are reading to much into that one.

I'm afraid they go full Yugioh 5D here, but there's another thing bothering me: how will we use our pokémon and battle while driving? The pokémon we use in battle aren't mere holograms like yugioh monsters.

That's actually a good point. How would they be able to battle? We could get side-cars, or perhaps Legends: Arceus-style platforms.

Can anyone please help us solve this conundrum for our hypothetical Pokémon 5Ds situation?
