Well with Galarian variants being confirmed, I think it’s safe to say that this will be a series mainstay going forward and I’m here for it!
I Mean; It DOES Make sense for them to keep it; not only to add more Lore & also connect the Pokemon world to the Real-Life Animal Adaptations that exist in Real Life, where certain Species have changed in order to Adapt to their environments. . .Well with Galarian variants being confirmed, I think it’s safe to say that this will be a series mainstay going forward and I’m here for it!
Actually no. The regional variants aren’t outright more powerful than the original counterparts, or are intrusive to their niche. If you need a fast arena trapper you won’t use Alolan Dugtrio over the regular one. Alolan Ninetales doesn’t intrude on Ninetales' niche. If you need a fire type you go with the Kanto form, and if you want an ice type you go with the Alolan form.Regional variants are a tacky gimmick that render the original versions of certain Pokemon totally frivolous.
I mean the next regions after Galar. Generation 9 could get us into the thousands. If not, then Generation X would definately be over a thousand. The only way to avoid getting four digits is to stop introducing new Pokémon, which the fanbase would not like.I highly doubt that Sword & Shield will introduce over 150 new Pokemon. That's just ridiculous.
