Cantankaque
really doesn't roll off the tongue well, and it doesn't seem to fit the pattern we've seen lately with cross-gen evolution names like Sneasler or Ursaluna.

I think it is fake...
Cantankerous + Macaque seems like two words they would combine. I mean it's awkward sounding...but it does sound like something they'd come up with.

Personally they should have gone with Ultraboon or Uberboon or something that used baboon instead of macaque if it's real. I mean nobody is going to look at the name and think it's pronounced can-TAN-kack.

Though I do suppose macaque makes sense because of this.

Probably meant to be a pun on Can't attack?

I had no idea what I was reading the first time I saw it, but once you hear it being pronounced it will probably roll off the tongue.

I agree that Cantankaque is a bit too much of a mouthful, and is probably the biggest thing that points to the leak being fake. If they wanted to come up with a name that sounded silly or confusing, I would personally have picked Senioape. It follows the previous evolution's naming convention, and is a logical progression as well (Prime + Ape evolves into Senior + Ape).

Cantankaque is possibly the worst name I've heard for a Pokemon. It doesn't just not roll off the tongue well, it tries to strangle it on the way out.

Not to mention the evolution for Primeape is meant to be a wise sage type character isn't it? In which case it wouldn't make a lot of sense for "Cantankerous" to be a part of it's name.

Yeah, as a non-english person, I had to read it 3 times to understand how It is pronunced.

Edit. Kaka confirmed the Fairy Hammer pokemon is a 3 stages and it's also part Steel
so the 4th E4 is Steel too
.
The Tumbleweed evolves and the boss bird is possibly a crane.

So the hammer pixie is Fairy/Steel and its the ace of a now confirmed Steel type E4 member, if I recall.

So Gym Leaders are: Ice (Grusha), Grass, Normal, Water, Electric, Ghost, Bug, and Psychic.
Elite 4 is: Ground, Dragon, Flying, and Steel.

Fairy/Steel is really a dangerous Type Combo. We only have 4 pokemon with those types and they are all standalone. A 3 stages mon that is also the ace of an E4 will have high base stats total for sure, if It also has a good ability It will be a monster.

It could be a real powerhouse for competitive if it gets a good ability.

Yup. It also seems like a Fire or Ground type is mandatory on the team in order to properly beat it, since Fighting isn't gonna cut it.

Dragon being an Elite 4 type is interesting, since that means there either isn't a proper champion (Which makes sense with the multiple people being champions thing), or the real champion is multi type (Which perfectly falls in line with every champion post-Steven, with the only outlier being Iris).

Why does the Dragon E4 member mean that there's no proper champion or a type specialist champion?
Hoenn had a Dragon E4 and a Steel Champion.

Steven had a multi-type team. He specialized in the "mineral" types (Ground, Rock, and Steel).

Best not to hype too much, but I have to say I found it a weird decision to delay SV trailer for the closing ceremony.

But I also believe that maybe we can draw some conclusions from this. I think it would fit much better for a closing ceremony if they showed a more "visual-heavy" and exciting trailer rather than a more "explanatory-ish" trailer as was the one for SwSh/2019 opening ceremony. I don't think it means it necessarily will be bigger, I don't think it will, but rather presents more exciting content than just some items and in a different way. Kinda like this one for TCG.
