The move cut is likely due to the styles introduction and the fact that they improved greatly in the animation department.
Although I don't completely agree in the various moves they decided to cut, as well as certain movesets.

Fewer moves = Less animation work

Is there something similar to that Tiki statue in XY that points to the next generation?

Not sure. I doubt GF would put in something pointing to a new gen in a filename but it could be in the game somehow. If people find it, they will.

Does anyone know the height and weight formula? From what I can gather, they both use a byte value into a triangular distribution, though at this point I have no idea what the final size output would be. I'm getting alpha sizes that don't really correspond to a set multiplier or addition.

Whoa! How did you even get to that point...? By digging through the code and seeing what the values for those are?

I think alpha sizes may be out of a random 'higher' value?

I wish, I still don't have it yet. I have been seeing other data miners talk about it on discord and twitter.
From what I can gather, both are byte values with a range of 0 to 255. Most of the encounters have a height and weight byte of 127, so I'm guessing that would be the mode of the distribution.

Alphas mostly have the 255 byte for height, not so sure about weight. I guess the distribution for them is different, or the final height for them is calculated differently

Do you own a hacked Switch? I think you can also view some parts of the rom on PC as well.

Nah, I look at the Roms on the PC, Can't afford getting a second switch incase they block it from online xp
In other news, looks like Serebii listed the non-alpha ranges of sizes and weight.

(you can set up an emulated NAND partition which is like a second Switch for doing hack stuff, Switch Hacking Is Easy is the reccomended guide if you wanna give it a shot, and i can help too!)
My Switch got banned lol! I actually didn't mind if it did because DNS blocking didn't work with my ISP, sadly. It would be nice if I had kept it but I think I'll be OK with no online, after all I only logged into my account once to get my game saves.

Something interesting I saw. A dataminer found some values coded into Pokémon that may point to Mega Evolutions.

I finally got the Day 0 patch downloaded. It was around 48 MB, and I couldn't extract the files with homebrew sadly (only let me view the romFS of the game WITH update, not update itself).
No noticeable improvements were found in my playing.
I bet you can extract the romFS contents with a program but I wouldn't know how to do that, my expertise is with homebrew.

It could also be a beta element. Like, they considered Mega Evolution, but then axed it.

Personally, I just think this is a "Just in case" scenario. It doesn't necessarily mean Mega Evolutions will be added.

I'm sure it's just a case of that they copy-pasted the data from a main archive and didn't bother to trim anything out this time. It has data for many pokemon and regional variants unavailable in the game as well, including Cap Pikachus. Gonna go out on a limb and say that they definitely weren't planning on adding Cap Pikachus to the game.

Interestingly, it seems like they also have "form" data for the unevolvable Gmax Pikachu and Eevee, as well, but not for Gmax Meowth or any of the other Gmax pokemon. That or it's Partner Pikachu and Eevee but with SwSh learnsets?? Really confused on which iteration of those two those entries are for.
