I think that other fighter crab guy is a counterpart to Crabrawler (like Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan).

I love the Toucan!

It looks like marshadow is the souvenir pokemon.
The Riddler has indicated that the souvenir Pokémon is one of the Tapu family, not Marshadow. I'm guessing it's the red Tapu.

Well it seems the final starter leaks were real. I've been trying to deny them, purely because of the Litten one, for a while now, and while the guy has grown on me, i still don't know how I feel about him.

Now on to the real question. Who do I choose? What starter is going to be the one who takes me through my first run through of the game. I think it's a little more between Litten and Popplio, as I plan to use a Lurantis on my final team. Decisions decisions.

I also like the other guardian deities. Alolan Persian is kinda odd.

Thus far, we have 72 new Pokemon..
And 18 Alolan variants.

Thoughts:

  • The toucan is indeed an evolution of Pikipek. I called that one correctly.
  • So far, looks like Mimikyu doesn't evolve. I'm sad, but not surprised.
  • So far, no Minior evolution. Could have gone either way. Mini doesn't necessarily indicate a bigger version. Probably further counterparts Solrock and Lunatone
  • Looks like Komala doesn't evolve. Surprised at that.
  • "Champod" looks very nice.
  • Not liking the beestung face of Alolan Persian.
  • Geodude line is looking like it might be Rock/Electric. Not sure what Diglett line will be.
  • I think the leaked "dolphin" Pokemon drop might be the purple Tapu, although it looks more like a Marlin or Narwhal to me.
  • The leaked "snowman" drop might have referred to "yeti." Crabrawler's evo looks like a yeti crab.

Still waiting for the 2 stage ghost snowman, Alolan Raichu, possible pre-evos and post-evos. There's just too much single staged mons in the third page

I'm honestly guessing that Marshadow is also a "pre-evolution" and another game will reveal its fully evolved stage.
I'm still trying to digest all of this, but I was thinking the same thing. It has been interesting to watch the gradual phasing-out of the "third game" mascot. First Zygarde gets shifted into a side-quest for an unrelated game, and then Marshadow just becomes a Mythical altogether.
