Well I kinda saw it as precedence here, that giving a regional variant a different name is more likely than breaking an Eviolite contradiction.
Eviolite is just an item, giving regional forms a different name makes no sense whatsoever.

Whoever suggested that they do not make regional formes not only restricted to Kanto: rejoice. There is hope for Galarian Formes to pull from every generation now that we see Gen 3 (Zigzagoon line) and Gen 1 (Weezing)!

With all that said and done, I sure hope we get Klink line Galarian Forme where it becomes teacup saucers, lol

"Over interpret"? We're literally going by his statement.

And what did he say about the dex cut? "This will be our policy for future games as well".
Dont be serious. He joked probably.

Ps. "Galar" is a old Polish ship

I think these leaks are sayin Sir'fetchd is a regional variant, not an evolution, and hence different typing.
Sometimes even he did it if I remember past properly. Something else is amount of Pokemon and something else a game mechanic that involved 3 generations. You dont remove pokemon and forms Forever... One game can be like Alola Sun and Moon but there need to be crossovers in future.

Could get Galar Farfetch get a evolution? Hope like Weezing that farfetch stays like it is like Koffing.

Koffing might have a galar-form. Although, if a Pokémon has a new evolution, it will probably only evolve from a Galar form to begin with.

In other words; a normal Farfetch'd wouldn't be able to evolve. A Galarian Farfetch'd would be able to evolve, though, like Galarian Zigzagoon. So, Koffing could theoretically stay normal.

He joked, and didn't laugh, and didn't clarify, and let everyone think that it was going to happen, and let news sources report on it, drawing criticism towards the games....Just because he thought it would be funny? And nobody told him to stop, even if it would affect the games?

That's way more over-interpreting than us believing that he was telling the truth.

Well, then you're gonna have to find a source for it.

Mega Evolution has only been around for two generations. That's the same length as contests, and, surprise, we got those cut, too.

Not forever, but permanently cut from SwSh.

I don't know what to wish for since regional evolutions have nothing to do with the original Pokemon. There may be a final surprise in the vein of the UBs, but I didn't like those and something tells me that it would involve permanent giants.

The biggest twist has been Dexit.

If Galarian Zigzagoon can evolve? Dark/normal? Will Obstagon in a other region become normal/fighting? Hmmm some Galar formes could evolve from their regular forms I think? Would be interesting.

Interesting is the new Hamster pokemon. Interesting if other old pokemon could learn Aura wheel and change type? Imagine Dewgong ice/electric. Or others changing type to ghost or fairy in forms? Would make Darmanitar get a new form.

Weird that Hamster doesn't become part ghost when hungry

Then we can call Galar Weezing, Jellicent, Roserade, Lilligant, Serperior and Lickylicky and have an aristocratic tea meeting! Oh of course with Miltank for the milk and perhaps Slurpluff and Alcreamie for dessert. :whistle::p

Why would it become part ghost when hungry? The whole thing is that it gets angry when it's hungry so it turns Dark-type. You know, the sinister type? It doesn't die of hunger.
Ghost hamster would be cool too they could call it Overfeeded Soul when eating too much during battle. Maybe could get oposite ability in future.

Interesting if move and berries will affect this transformations like healing +type change. Then abilities and moves that steal and prevent eating berries would be better.

Now I hope for my powerfull sleeping beast that form changes during sleep status and becomes a Wishiwashi like Behemoth that changes back when awake. Could see many good typings and a type change here.

_
Galar Kingler , Crawdunt, water/steel or water/ghost

The idea of the water/ghost fish and ice/flying pokemon with the flying move to hit Dive users turns me on. Braviary and its flying type move should do that.

Hmmm Anchor Shot should hit Dive users too.

The whole ghost-type shtick is either about something possessed, out of a different realm or something "undead".

There are only a few exceptions that deal with something different; the somewhat ethereal and mystical nature of some animals; Decidueye and the Frillish line.

Pet semetary. A ghost hamster come on... Also usage in game would be great.
What if low on hp and spiritual powers awake? Mediums, shamans, druids, magicians, necromancers, frankenstein... You get it?
