What kinds of new Pokemon would you all like to see? You can include type combinations, design ideas, cross/generational-evolutions, etc.

Also, how many new Pokemon do you think will be introduced in the Galar region? What amount would you like? I'd like 80-100.

100 new pokemon sounds fine.

I'd like another Water/Steel pokemon.
As I mentioned in another thread, Fog form for Castform.
Another pokemon species based on a sheep.
And a Welsh Corgi

I'm in for a corgi, too. Although it's weird to see it when its country got cut.

A corgi would do well as the early route Normal-type a la Rattata/Sentret/etc. (though it might step on Lillipup's toes), though I'm curious to see if we'll get regional variants again, now that they've been established by Sun/Moon.

And I agree, if they make 100 new 'mons, I would be happy.

120 or so new Pokemon.

Fossils based on the cave lion and the woolly rhinoceros (both of which existed in Pleistocene Europe)
Mythical Pokemon based on Cu Chulainn with a default and berserk forms (because why not?)
Normal-type Jack Russell Terrier (with Speed Boost?)
Swordfish
Shield Bug
Wizard
Kelpie (with seaweed. Get it?)
Badger
Leprechaun
Corgi (fairy-type)
pseudo-legend based on the first ever depiction of Iguanodon (gradually evolving into the more accurate version)
wild boar
some sort of deer
red squirrel

I'm pretty sure we won't get that many, since they showed so many older pokemon, but I like the way you think.

A dragon species, based on the tale of St George and the Dragon.

Fossil Pokemon, preferably with one being a Mosasaur. I really missed the concept in Alola.

Give or take a 100 would be nice, though it depends a little on whether we get new mega evolutions or regional variants.

Also, this seems like the region to finally introduce a fairy/dark type

And I have a feeling we'll definitely get some interesting ghost types too

I hope for at least 100 this generation. About 94 regular Pokemon and 6 Legendary/Mythical Pokemon.

As for species, I hope for Pokemon based on rats, plague doctors, a phoenix, a welsh corgi, a fenrir wolf, and a girffin. If there's nothing with a witch or wizard motif also or a leprechaun motif also I'll be sad.

Something with a druid motif would be cool, as would a pirate and/or a Viking. A Griffin would be great!

The rat/plague doctor concepts could be combined, because why not?


Mythical Pokemon with two formes based on Fafnir? <- Dwarf that transforms into a Dragon

I would like to see at least a hundred Pokemon, but I know that can be a bit unrealistic these days, so anywhere from 85-100 is fine

I hope we see a Steel and a Dragon type eeveelution this gen. Based on the inspiration for the region of these games, I think these two would be very likely. They would also make for an eeveelution who Sylveon is weak against (Steel), and who Sylveon is strong against (Dragon).

I would also really love to see an Ice/Dragon Pokemon living up there in the mountains. Dragon types are really cool. but there are very few in Pokemon that really really embody dragons, and I can see a really elegant and strong dragon coming out of an ice typing.

Also can we just get an Ermine (stoat) based Pokemon, please I need one so bad.

What about Mienfo & Mienshao?
You know I don't think I ever considered Mienfoo to be based off of an ermine. It does share similarities though. Maybe that's why I like it so much

Still though, I would love to see one that really shows off the Ermine's ability to change coats in the seasons (ermine has brown and tan coats in summer and warm places, and white coats in cold weather), whether it is a weather changing Pokemon, or it simply has different forms depending on where you find it.
