I'm always a sucker for Pokémon based off of inanimate objects, so those are always welcome! Manticores, gargoyles and bats in general would be very welcome as well; specially with the UK rumors going around, there are lots of European medieval motifs they could draw inspiration from. For the starters I want more unexpected type combos since those lead to very unique designs. A water/rock gargoyle (since they're supposed to be water spouts), a water/ghost wale/beluga/dolphin alluding to shipwrecks (although we already have Primarina being inspired by mermaids...), a grass/dark or grass/psychic sorcerer/druid bat, the fire/poison manticore every fakemon artist wants, a fire/ground deer... Aaaaaah~
 
Looking for a way to be whole again.

Well, how about a chocolate version of Vanillish? The lore could explain that the snow trapped dirt and eventually fell on its head. For those who don't know the Vannilish line, they are not actually ice cream, they are icicles with snow on top that just happened to take the shape of one.
 
I gotta focus. I'm shifting into pokemon mode.

At this point I kind of want anything but the UK given the early rumors being so obnoxious.

Also, I feel like we will have another set of RPG class starters again since we've been getting them for the last two gens.

Then you will have people trying to eat the dirty slush from it's head thinking it's really chocolate ice cream.

That's scary to think about.

Edit: wait no. Ice/poison regional variant might work.

  1. I agree with the UK rumors. I want an UK as far from now as possible.
  2. The Alola starters where based on performers, not RPG classes.
  3. Ewww...
