I still don't understand the purpose of these giga forms. The abilities are the same, the types are the same.. It's basically another three turns z-move with a form change?
Btw two of the forms changes are pretty lame...

Dynamax, Gigantamax, Sponsorships, Max Raids... wow...

I can't wait for SwSh to come out, so I can finally skip them.

The G-Max moves. It's essentially the equivalent of the "signature" Z-Moves like Stoked Sparksurfer and Genesis Supernova.

The one to the right strikes to me as a muffin... anyone else feeling this or is it just me?
I think both images are the same Pokemon - you can see the same limb at the right of the creature. The liner-esque shape seems to just be a particle effect.

You're probably right. Thanks. My eyes fail me... that red glare from Gigantimax Drednaw blinded me!

Hardly a stunning manoeuver from the company that has essentially sold us the same game 30 times since 1996. :D

I do hope that they finally reveal Eternatus before November. I want to know its connection with Zacian and Zamazenta in relation to the plot.

If there’s an actual mechanic involving endorsements for the MC, even if I don’t kind the execution, it’d still be something new to add to the game.

Gigantamax is on the same range of Dynamax, Z-moves and Megas for me. The first and the last add a bit in terms of visuals. All those features aren’t vital for me, and not nearly as important as the full dex (while not gamebreaking, I do expect something in return in other parts of the game).

The Champions Cup, and in general the whole way the League works is really intriguing. The offset of possibly losing the E4 is completely matched by the tournament for me.

Of Rose and Oleana, we don’t know enough to judge them, and their role in the story, though it’s still good that they add more characters related and relevant to the main story.

In a way, it's also comparable to Keldeo's Resolute Form, which signified how it had the move Secret Sword. The best way I can sum it up is through the following equation:

Resolute Form + Exclusive Z-Moves (read: G-Max Moves) = Gigantimax

As expected the protest is taking over this video too. Let's see if It will reach the level of the threehouse video.

You know as well as we all do that's Gigantamax Voltorb. I think I can even see some "smoke" surrounding the head...

Galar is just one big advertisement
It's meta beyond belief.

Well, I'm glad they decided to at least reveal the obvious "plot-twist" villain of the Gen. Well, the leak kinda spoiled that, but come on... even without it he gives off much better final boss vibes than Leon does. And f*ck his eventually revealed Gigantamaxed Charizard. British Tony Stark & Pepper Potts... oi.
