Same here. I'm willing to give the guy the benefit of a doubt when it comes to leaks, but if it happens at least twice more, then I'd have a hard time believing the guy. Also, no matter who the source is, you should never 100% trust a leak since the person who believes it could be mistaken.
True, I remember during the X/Y leak season there where a lot of people who where "verified leakers" however they where fired and now you can't trust anything they say because it is all untrue. I just keep an open mind during leak season...

You guys are WAY too forgiving.....I'm not saying he's a bad guy, but the last time he did this it was clear he just wanted the views. If he really did have leaks unrelated to the Pokepark thing from 4Chan he should have just come right out and said something. He made it sound like the video he was posting at that time WAS the real leak video and that's not ok. He can't just keep saying he has leaks and then not showing what he has. If he has something GREAT! If he doesn't then he needs to keep his mouth shut. This is similar to that giancarloparimango11 guy. He LOVES pretending like his videos have actual stuff and then it's just clickbait.
Iirc someone asked him on twitter if it was related to the leak and he said no... However he didn't follow up so it is very likely untrue. However I see two possibilities...

1: He is probably just making things up and is going for a very "vague" approach so if there happens to be new forms he will be "right" because of guessing

2: He does have a source and everything is a misunderstanding like the one person who took a screenshot of the Chinese leak and translated it but when asked about the time stamp for proof, they wouldn't give it, making the leak feel very iffy. It did end up being true.

Either or

I am putting zero trust in phillyguy. After the last fiasco, where he never had a leak at all and just casually swept that under the rug when the lycanroc/dreampark stuff came about. He just wants attention. If not, he'd have just flat-out said what the leak is by now

Interesting...it isn't over the top as the previous leaks, which makes it more believable, though the first 2 lines are the most predictable.

Tapus getting new forms has been talked about in other leaks. It makes sense for them to pull a therian, but changing typings - that's seems like a reach.

The alola forms and UBs seem nicely described, but one thing that puts this on blast is that there are 2 new Oricorio forms yet only one new island, which somehow doesn't make much sense given the current Oricorio-Island color association.

But I'd love a fire/ice UB Burst

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the default Minior is considered Red so that's another point against the leak.

Another point that might prove the leak fake is that the Mankey and Spearow lines are already in Sun and Moon. I have a feeling that if they were to introduce new regional variants in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, they would use Pokémon that weren't in the old Alolan Pokédex. That is just my opinion plus the whole red Minior core probably makes it fake since the default core is the Red Core.

I must agree, he's been being very secretive about the leaker for months now and only now just stated that he mentioned something about Mantine after everyone saw the direct. You want credibility? Then tell us something we don't know.
his latest tweets claim we are getting alolan forms, some of which are at least part fire type. We also claims we'd get something at the tokyo game show or whatever, however the schedule for that thing has 0 mention of pokemon so, it's likely safe to say that guy has negative credibility at this point

How likely are we to get new alola forms at this stage ?
Anything is possible because we got new UBs and we have some reason to believe the "wishlist" leak might be legit. They had no reason to hide the existence of new UBs until now and yet they did so they could well be hiding alolan forms as well

That's safe to assume that there won't be anything at the gameshow. However, I believe something's happening on the 29th, so that would be a better candidate for when we get more news.

I trust no "leaks" that surface right after trailers.
Keep in mind, the Chinese leak surfaced right after the trailer showing Salandit with someone claiming that a leak mentioned a fire lizard 2 weeks before the trailer. They also didn't provide a time stamp and the leak was so put there (No gyms) that no one trusted its credibility.

not the same thing though. They showed a leek that predicted the lizard before the trailer, whether there was a timestamp or not. This one is just pure bs posted 1-2days after the trailer
