Also, someone pointed out that one of the shirts for the girls had what appears to be a Toucan on it. Just so you guys know if someone comes out with a Toucan Leak!

Image for reference.

Looks like a pretty standard toucan to me though. You'd think a Pokemon would have a more special design.
I would gladly take a toucan pokemon though, I love those birds.

Some leaks have been proved wrong, folks! Rugby monkey is real, and you can buy Team Skull clothing! However, the random leaks one is half-wrong and half-right, as it says that it has a baseball mitt, BUT it DOES say you can buy Team Skull clothing.

So, what about that leak?
I rewatched both trailers and I don't see any Team Skull clothing for the PC. You might be confusing the Alolan Marowak shirt with Team Skull's logo.

OK in all seriousness this either means we're getting a Toucan Pokemon or real world animals are confirmed for Pokemon. Either way this is an interesting bit of info. But yeah any leak that only has the Toucan going for it should probably be considered fake. OR anything confirming real world animals in Pokemon as both can be extrapolated from this.

Gen 5 and 6 we're in September so October is more likely either next trailer or within that month plus I don't see why they can't introduce new characters and the starters since Akala Trial Captains, Hala and new Pokemon/forms was both new characters and new Pokemon in 1 trailer.
Gen5 had the starter evolutions revealed a matter of days before the game came out. Gen6 had the starter evolutions revealed a month before release. The earliest we'll see Gen7 starter evolutions is late October/Early November.

I mean they have a shirt that depicts an Alolan Exeggutor, so I can only assume this dipicts a Pokémon based on a toucan? I don't think there had ever been evidence of real world animals existing in the Pokémon world?

Not saying that it isn't a possibility to be a toucan, but if you want me to be honest, it could also be something like a Cherubi or a Bounsweet in a weird angle and cut off by the bag strap. Let's be careful about this...

Guys remember the Pyukumuku helmet? We saw it in a poster before the Pokemon itself was revealed. Considering all the Pokemon themed clothing/accessories we've seen so far I'd say we'll get a toucan Pokemon soon.

Update for the answers to the riddles

N4: Rugby monkey is obvious.
Let's talk about Oranguru.
N3: Wu Yong has a nickname 'Zhi Duo Xing'
Zhi = Knowledge
Duo = Much
Xing = Star
So it's always translated as Resourceful Star.
But in Chinese, Chimp/Orangutan and Star share the same pronunciation 'XING' !!!
Wu Yong = Zhi Duo Xing = Orangutan with much knowledge
It's a riddle based on Chinese language lore.
Awesome.
Also the toucan.

I suppose the other possibility is that you can draw on your shirts to further customize your look since the website did say you can dye your clothing as well.

This is the perfect game to introduce a toucan pokemon. as for real animals in the pokemon world, some of the early pokemon cards had real animals in the background with the pokemon. I know the card people are different than the game people, but still...

Might want to read this: Animals in the Pokémon world - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

Animals do appear in the Pokemon world.

We've already known that since July.

So I believe Oranguru is the Monk staff that the Riddler hinted and right next to it is the Rugby Monkey

I think the pokemon that are highlighted below are pokemon capable of doing a signiture Z move.

Why do I have a feeling that Solgaleo and Lunala are Ultrabeast based on the placement of UB01. and the two spaces before are for the UB02s.

Interesting...so that means that people are right about the Toucan being a real Pokemon. I would have assumed that the print on the t shirt was just a generic print since it doesn't really stand out, but if the riddler is saying it's a new Pokemon then I guess it's a new Pokemon hahaha

They were reveal through Corocoro before official trailer plus by release day they reveal starters final evolutions around after the games release.

So, looks like Alola Parasect is deconfirmed since regular Parasect appeared in the Japanese trailer
