I still think regional evolutions is still a broader term. By that I mean not just regional variants get evolutions, but I feel regular pokemon can also get regional evolutions. Like farfetch'd. They can only evolve in a certain region.
Meant to respond to this earlier, but this tweet suggests original variants wouldn't gain any additions to their evolutions lines - only Galarian variants would.

I don't think that totally rules out non-variants getting regional evolutions too, it just emphasizes that some evolutions are only available for their regional variant lines.

Honestly that sounds like the case. But when I think about it. Regional evolutions sounds the smartest way of getting away with cross gen evos. Back in gen 4 almost all the cross gens evolved fro items or move that haven't been learned previous. With this, they don't have to rely on stuff like that no more

I'm living for all of the Unova representation in this dex, still holding out for Bisharp, Zoroark, Gothitelle, and Leavanny

200+ confirmed, it will definitely be at least as big as XY.
I feel it'll be more than that. Sun and Moon's regional dex had over 300, and USUM had over 400. The number increases each game, and I feel it'll be even bigger this game. At least 500
