The Tapus could've been moved to be earlier kind of like what happened with the Swords of Justice and Kamis (both dropped to be around the 2/3 mark whereas before they were at the end like any other Legendary).

Also, have they ever removed Pokémon between regional dexes? I don't think even the Kamis were removed despite the Dream Radar app and it wouldn't make sense to just remove the Tapus outright since they're important to Alolan lore, so it'd be odd for them to completely be missing.
They never removed pokemon from the regional dex, but BW-> BW2 had a radical change of number order for both legendaries and wild pokemon (with the addition of old-gen ones naturally). Genies and Musketeers were moved way earlier than other legendaries and it's likely because you encounter them earlier in the respective games.

Even DP -> PT had a rather weirdo numbering because it added regular pokemon after dialga and palkia xD

All that said, it's entirely possible the order changed, but the overall is still 402 (or 403 if we get a new myth)

Since the Island challenge is confirmed to return, doesn't that make the John Gamefreak III Esq. leaks false?
Not to mention it also claimed there would be Alolan Mantine and that Gladion would run away with Cosmog. If it was just one of those things that was wrong then maybe I could see the "deliberately false info" thing, but these are three (rather difficult to misinterpret) claims that are blatantly debunked. I agree that it's time to finally put this one in the fake category once and for all.

Does this mean that we only get the two new Ultra Beasts that have been already revealed? :(

Combined with that, and I think it's safe to say that John III is fake, or at the very least unreliable.

Well we have less than 60 days now until release folks!

That Mantine minigame is super fucking awesome. Kinda gimmicky and very reminiscent of flying on [email protected] But I love it and it's great.

So is that poster for sure fake? Cause like. What's that one Pokemon? Below Guzzlord.

The big-boobed female in the middle seems to have purplish long hair, the little girl apparently has reddish or pink hair. I think they're all new characters.

It's possible the wishlist leak is true, since apparently Hau does get a different development in USUM. Can anybody translate this?

I think that's a new scene where Hau says something like "I'll overcome the king!" <- I google translated that so if somebody with proper japanese skills can translate :p

Based on the above (if Hau is really talking about a king) ^ plus the fact that all space-suit chars seem to have features/hairs befitting royals, could they be the royal family of alola that we've heard about?
Please put large images under spoiler tags, so people don't have to scroll just to get past the image ;) I've spoiler tagged it for now, but please keep it in mind for the future! :D

With the recent trailer done and analysed, do we have any specific leaks that are the most likely at this point ? Can we expect any more patterns ?

Only the wishlist still holds some water..even chinese leak v2 seems untrue right now because Lillie will not surprise you a lot apparently..least not from the footage we've seen. It also doesn't seem like the games take place 1 year later than SM did but we don't really know for sure.

As for the wishlist, it seems that Hau might indeed pull a Blue (and get a better outfit when he's revealed a champion or something) because they are implying his story will diverge from SM and be at the very least more developed. This time around, Hau seems to get his own resolve which might result in him 1-upping us by being a champion. That leak is vague enough to not be disproven just yet. The chill pill part is still iffy though.

Any other leaks imo sound like bs at this point (and always sounded like bs)
