Not that I was putting much faith in the John GameFreak "leaks" anyway, but it claimed Gladion escaped with Nebby as well as Type: Null, which we now know to be false based off of that aforementioned scene with Lillie and Cosmog from the official website. Between that and the Alolan Mantine claim, I don't think there's even a slight chance of it being real.

Don't forget gyms :p and "fusion"
Necrozma absorbs the mascot, it's not fusion. They even phrase it in 3 different ways to emphasize it's not fusion - Necrozma captures the legendary pokemon/Necrozma takes over -trailer/ Necrozma absorbs the mascot- corocoro. I mean at the end of the day, they are merged together, but the process isn't fusion like Unova's absofusion

Yeah but what about "deliberately false info"

I argued against the John 3 leak not long ago and that's the counterargument that was brought.

There's a difference between 1-2 smaller things being wrong and ..like..you know.. only a single thing being correct in a leak :p

Nothing here that wasn't already widely speculated, but this seems to show Lycanroc, Mimikyu, and Kommo-o's Z-Crystals. The yellow one could maybe be Togedemaru instead, but in any case the Mimikyu one is almost guaranteed, and if the Mimikyu and Lycanroc shots from the first trailer were Z-Moves than it's almost certain that the Togedemaru scene will be a Z-Move as well.

I'm expecting Mimikyu's Z-Move to be based off Shadow Claw. It doesn't have a signature move but the crystal seems more fitting for a Ghost move than a Fairy move, and Mimikyu's dark claws are actually incorporated into its design, making me feel like it would fit the best.

I hope Pyukumuku gets a Z-Move.

Right, but we don't know anything now that we didn't back when I was shooting at it. :p

Well, either way, I think we agree it's a pretty bad "leak."

Lycanium Z is brown, though. Not red.

My guess is they're Solgaleo and Lunala's.

EDIT: Other than that, I could see them being Turtonator and Mimikyu's.

I hope all the Gen7 mons that have signature moves get a Z-Move, too.

I need a Tsareenum-Z
That's my hope too! Seriously, if you're going to want to make a physical grass mon used with its signature move, then it needs to be more powerful instead of keeping the poor thing from learning stronger physical STAB moves. A Z-Move might be just the thing for Tsareena in this case.

I felt the same way with Mega. People just kept complaining how OP they were lol. I'm so glad to have a break from that somewhat with SM. Seems more and more likely that we won't get any new Alola forms this time around. Has anything pointed to us getting any more?

According to Pokejungle,

" to correspond with the release of Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon, an upgraded version is being advertised in Japan with a bigger screen and “complete records of Alola’s 400 + available Pokémon”!

Could this mean more new UB's and Alola Forms or just an expanded dex with old pokemon we didn't get last time ?

Both? Both would be good. If you count Marshadow, there is 302 Pokemon available in Alola. GameXplain pointed out that in the new trailer from the Direct, Rockruff's 'dex number has changed and it is now later in the 'dex...

I still think it makes sense that Pokemon like Mantine, Bellossom and Tropius got added. Also their subsequent post evos. Maybe a few Johto-Alolan forms and a few UBs that aren't Burst or Array.

Taken all together, having 98 new Pokemon added wouldn't be bad or unheard of...

20 new forms could be expected but could this 400+ might mean the addition of past gen Pokemon into the game or is it separate Alola's Dex ?

Means like with ORAS, BW2 and the like, its just adding older pokemon not present into the current game pokedex such as Mantine for example. We can expect 20ish new forms at most and the rest will be older pokemon that didnt make the alola dex like last time I would imagine.
