Silvally was there, but nothing else. Seems like we're only getting 72 new Pokemon, 18 Alolan forms, and 8 Ultra Beasts...

Big takeaways from video 3. UB's have shiny forms: UB = Pokemon.
Not necessarily. They could just be crash prevention measures, like Shiny Spiky-eared Pichu or ??? Arceus.

Also Gold Magearna isn't shiny? So what is Gold Magearna.
The "special Poké Ball Form," I think they said.

So I guess this settles it. Another generation and still no dolphin. Damn it Gamefreak.

Did the special Movie things you fight in B2W2 have shiny sprites?

I'm just glad that with all of the new forms considered as new Pokemon, we actually cleared 100+ new designs. 107 by my count.

its possible they didn't put all the pokemon in there, but i think it is unlikely considering how many they are pulling up. is it still possible more can be datamined?

I am laughing so goddamn hard at the fact that we actually have shiny Ultra Beasts.

Being more serious (and assuming they are indeed catchable and usable like any Pokémon, which is looking very likely now), I suspect they might have restrictions put onto them in battle, like Megas (ie. one per trainer per battle, or similar).
