Incidentally, a while back, an unused cry was found in the data for HOME that seemed to suggest either a scrapped Mega Jynx or a Jynx regional form... :unsure:

(And it could be a regional form - as of Galarian Slowpoke, regional forms can now have different cries from their base forms.)
Huh I didn’t even realize that Galarian Slowpoke had a different cry.

...but that alternate Jynx one is absolutely horrifying lmao

Galarian Jynx? I'm interested. Maybe it's for a G-Max form? Nevermind, he said that it wasn't.

Huh, I felt certain it was going to be a Water-type U-turn/Volt Switch- I've actually seen a fan idea with that exact name- but Au-Revoir doesn't really have any Water-type connection, does it?
"Revoir" looks/sounds like river! :D

Which on the one hand is clearly just me being goofy, but on the other, it does seem like kind of a Pokémon-esque pun... (consider "Fishious Rend", "Gorilla Tactics")

I have a hard time believing those moves are signature moves of existing Pokémon, would be a bit late. Not impossible, but not even a generation has passed.

New move tutors are going to be a feature.

Anyway, the ice-skating move would make some sense. Cool. Galarian Jynx intensifies. I really, really hope for a new Galarian evolution, as well. I know it's unlikely, but still.

Maybe the whole "Waving a ....paper towel for goodbye to someone traveling away in a BOAT under the sunset" trope, here is a stretch to hang on until we find out it's just normal type.

Hey everyone! Really late to this, forgive me for that. But I have a really important message to share.

As usual, whenever a Pokemon release is right around the corner, potential leaks and rumours come from left and right about the possibilities of what may be in new Pokemon games. However, we're in somewhat unfamiliar waters since this is the first time we're in "leak season", so to speak, concerning Pokemon DLC. That being said, if you care about playing through the DLC completely blind, avoid this thread. I'm not going to mince my words here. I'm going to strongly encourage to the point of recommending every individual here to utilize the spoiler tag when concerning major potential leaks to be courteous, but do be aware that, again, as usual, when a rumour or "leak" is posted, it's going to be shared about and discussed, and every single reply to the such cannot be put in spoilers.

That being said, to everyone who doesn't mind leaks, please do keep leak discussions strictly to the relevant threads (in this case, this one). This is so that those who care about playing through the DLC blindly will not have to accidentally stumble upon leaks in other threads. This is going to be the policy as it stands until SwSh staff can come up with something more concrete, but currently, we're watching things unfold and we feel this is the best course of action to take for now, until things change.

Also, a reminder that 4chan cannot be directly linked to. Screenshots of rumours and leaks from 4chan, fine, but do not link directly to it. 4chan leaks should be taken with a grain of salt. This should be obvious, but I figure it should be said, nonetheless.

Thank you for reading. If you have any questions, feel free to send a PM my way.

They did give Heatmor a signature move in SM.

As I said, that was not in the same generation and move tutors are clearly being marketed for IoA.

I don't see exclusives happen except for Urshifu and other brand new ones, like G. Slowbro.

Not yet, anyway.

"Shell Side Arm" is almost definitely a Galarian Slowbro move.
"Misty Explosion" might have something to do with box legends since there was a lot of mist in game.

tbh my hopes so far are just new galarian forms. feels a bit underwhelming that we got so few and i'm hoping for a lot more this time around.

I personally don't see them just having Galarian Slowpoke line (and only two of the three at that) in Armor and that's it - it would be very lackluster. I know Tundra has the birds and the other in the Slowpoke line, but again, it'd be quite strange to have Slowpoke out of everything get Galarian forms but no other standard Pokémon, no?

Maybe that's just me wanting more and more!

Agreed, it would be weird if they just gave regional forms to the Slowpoke line and the legendary birds. I figure we'll probably see a couple more regional variants, perhaps three to five more families. I could see them giving Galarian forms to Johto, Sinnoh, Kalos, and Alolan Pokemon considering they didn't get any in the base game.

Edit: I forgot about G-Corsola. Thanks to @swiftgallade46 for pointing that out.
