I think all the aforementioned leaks are fake, with the Necrozma light form being the fastest 'mon a lucky guess.

Also, by popular demand,I decided to do the Ice/Psychic Alolan Noctowl I've always wanted!
Noctowl- Alola Form! (I guess it’s off topic but this thread has shown a lot of enthusiasm for Alolan Noctowl)

I half wanted to make a fake Leak with my Alolan Noctowl art in it

I do like the possibility that Assembly and Burst replace Phermosa and Buzzwole storywise in USUM even though they are new pokemon. With the impression that USUM is set in a alt reality / universe in a retelling sense compared to SM, I can see them replacing them honestly making them available through trading from Sun and Moon. With the way USUM has gone thus far, I wouldn't be surprised. Is it possible ?

I believe there is truth to this as we see in the cut scenes in Sun and Moon, Buzzwole and Pheromosa attack Hala and in one of the recent trailers of USUM, the new UB attack Hala and Hau. Since Buzzwole and Pheromosa were the only UB in cutscenes and we have the new UB's in USUM cut scenes, could we see them being replaced ?

It really gets me curious.

The thing is that it's just people riding on obvious information :p It's really not hard to make fake leaks when you put 2 and 2 together from existing trailers and pics. It's pretty much confirmed information that the new UBs will be the cameos this time around because we saw both appearing before Hau and Hala where Pheromosa and Buzzwole appeared in SM.

At this point, there's only so much that can be the case:
-7 UBs replace the SM UBs in the game and dex
-These are the only new UBs given cameos in the story because they're new
-These replace only Pheromosa/Buzzwole in the game and dex for ???? reasons

I will just never be impressed by people who decide to "leak" stuff after we've seen trailers about the concept/possibility. If you want to be credible, be like the wishlist leak and not just an attention ho

The only known thing about gamesweek is that there will be a live battle demonstration with ohmori and iwao...from that, we can possibly expect:

-them to showcase a new pokemon/alolan form in a regular battle
-them to showcase a new battle facility
-them to showcase a new battle format
-them to showcase that usum still has/doesn't have framedrops during battles

1 or more of the above are technically possible, but might not happen so yeah..keep them expectations low

EDIT: forgot to add, they can also showcase a new Z move ...which I personally could not care less about

I do not care for any Z-Move if it isn’t for Kanto Raichu.

I still cannot understand why didn’t they name the stone Raichuium Z and have Alolan Raichu use Stoked Sparksurfer with it, and have Kanto Raichu use Stoked Sparkstrike with a different animation, which uses Volt Tackle or some other physical Electric move (or hell, just make the base move thunderbolt with just a different animation when used by Raichu)

The leak that talked about kiawe not being the captain...that one seems a bit believable to me :v

Also,they can easily make exclusive things for charizard even in gen 7 lmao (Like they did with Chary X)

But we have Totem Marowak replacing Salazzle. So he's definitely still a Captain.

Well, that seems hopeful at least...does the fact it only mentions 4 islands mean the cloud doesn't hide one or that they don't wanna spoil it?

Sorry, but I think 0 captains changed because on the japanese website, in the trials section, there's a picture of all of them except acerola and mina (and we know they're captains) so it implies the captains are all the same as sm

Supposedly the whole "Battle Facility" thing was a mistranslation. They are all on the same line. The section is called "Battle Facility" and under it is Battle Royal and Battle Tree so it is a false alarm. "And more" could mean something though

Mmm,some people said that the hiker replaced kiawe,i don't know if this is true
Kiawe's on the Trial Captain page in the Japanese site. Of course he's not getting replaced. What they could do is add more Trials/Trial Captains, but I'm not sure on that idea.

Tbh, I wasn't expecting a new Battle Facility, plus why would we have a Battle Tree, Battle Royal, and Festival Plaza, we might get an update instead of take one out, and add in a new one. I'm wondering how the Festival Plaza would work, because Miiverse is shutting down on Nov 7th.
