Pokémon SwSh Datamine (Story Version) (SPOILER WARNING).

Gym Leader ranking for me:
  1. Nessa (She's just so fabulous smh don't think I'm weird)
  2. Piers
  3. Kabu
  4. Allister
  5. Milo
  6. Opal
  7. Bea
  8. Melony & Gordie
  9. Raihan
 
I don't think hate any Gym Leader, with the closest to hate would be Brock, Roxanne and Roark thanks to being Rock specialists in the early game and interfering with my only one line challenges.
 
Type: Null's Dex entry: "Rumor has it that the theft of top-secret research notes led to a new instance of this Pokémon being created in the Galar region."

The Battle Tower gift Null isn't Serial Number 03!

Any word on these murals from the trailer? It can't be the Berts (thankfully), because one of them has black hair. But there doesn't seem to be any mention of them in Dex entries or anything?

I want to enjoy this, because it seems like a cool minor plot they could add in the background (especially now that we've got a spy Pokemon), but they just continued to create those harsh control masks for the Pokemon? And they're just handing out the top-secret Pokemon for fun?

If I'm remembering right,

The sword and shield guys claim their royal ancestors vanquished Eternatus or something, but it was actually Zacian and Zamazanta that did it. These guys on the mural are probably depictions of their ancestors fighting Eternatus off, as the guys claim they did.

The two characters on the mural might be made up in-universe.

I guess they ran into the same issues that Faba did

Ooh, I actually really like that! Uncovering a legendary coverup like that sounds like loads of fun! It also makes the berts that much more tolerable, because now I know they're meant to grate on you with those names and hair!

Minor nitpick but they're not both "____bert." It's actually Swordward and Shieldbert.
 
Okay, I’m being serious here. This hasn’t been asked and it seems like almost an elephant in the room. Does anyone else think Bede is gay? I ask this as a gaming, fashion-clueless, soft-spoken gay person myself so I am aware that stereotypes aren’t always true but everything about him screams gay to me. Including his outfit and his all-female team which consists of three witchy Pokémon and a unicorn.

certainly seems to be queer-coded, which is really neat!

Don't know what to think, since I have seen extremely effeminate men that are straight and macho men that are gay, so... yeah.

It bores me to tears. Oh, and the leaker didn't miscommunicate the "thousand years" part:

ROSE: Leon. We’ve discussed this a hundred times already. And still you fail to understand what’s at stake? You, who is supposed to be our Champion...
LEON: I think I understand well enough. What I don’t understand is why we ought to cancel tomorrow’s tournament in order to solve a problem that’s a thousand years away from affecting any of us! What difference is one day going to make? My duty as Champion isn’t this...this madness. It’s to carry out that Championship Match! That’s what Galar wants—and what I want! It’s what we’ve all been looking forward to for so long!
ROSE: No, you don’t understand... You still don’t understand a thing! Look around us, Leon! Look at the Galar region stretched out before us. And know that the energy required to keep this brilliant, glittering world alive will be exhausted a millennium from now! The people of Galar today will no longer even exist. What Galar wants today hardly matters! The future is more important than just one day! We must act as quickly as we possibly can! We must take action in order to avert tragedy! So that all can look forward to a better future!
LEON: In a thousand years! Fine. Look. I think I understand your concerns, Chairman. And I give my word I’ll help you with your plans... just as soon as tomorrow’s match is over.
ROSE: Lee... You never showed when you were supposed to, so I got worried that something had happened... Piers and Marnie and all those Team Yell oddballs, they all helped us out to get here...
LEON: I must apologize to you, Hop, if we’ve made you worry at all. There are times when adults just can’t seem to have an honest discussion with one another. Sometimes our pride just gets in the way. Never mind any of this, Hop, [Player]. Let’s head back to the hotel, and we’ll all grab dinner together, yeah? It’s on me, so you can order whatever you fancy. If you’ll excuse us, Chairman Rose... And I do hope you’ll watch tomorrow’s match. It’s sure to be one for the history books. One for the history books...
ROSE: You still don’t understand, young Champion... We... No, I am going to change the course of history!
It's especially ridiculous because Rose tells them exactly what he's planning and they shrug it off.

Minccino? No, I’m just an old man.
I come here secretly to freshen up, but I guess I’ve finally been found out!
Let me give you a little something to remember our meeting!
Now then, I must be on my way! Farewell! Ha ha ha ha!
Dataminers pls include statements about when the player is given an item
