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.
Plaza has nothing to do with Royal and Tree, and there's always a Battle Tower-equivalent in games, Unova had no issues having that + PWT + Subway + White Forest tree

While I don't expect a full blown frontier, it's still possible we get a smaller facility e.g. the hypothetical gym simulator and whatnot

Is there a source on the battle being confirmed to showcase new Z-Moves?
It's a hard guess on my end but considering that the new Z moves have various effects in battles, I'd say that's what they're going to show.

One of the 4chan leaks said that one of the characters at the battle tree was Higanaa, which I think was a misspelling of Higana. The thing is the rest of the characters are shown with their English names.

But we have Totem Marowak replacing Salazzle. So he's definitely still a Captain.
What makes you reach that conclusion? Considering the Totem changed it isn't that Farfetch'd that the Trial Captain could change too.
Not saying that I actually think it did tho..

Read earlier in the posts, it was pointed out that the japanese website's trial section features a picture of all the captains that appeared in SM except Mina who has a separate picture, and Acerola, who we know is still a captain

Again not arguing cause i believe it, but could those be just the sm cast for show and they maybe changed them for USUM but are keeping it quiet?
