Which Pokemon would you guys like to get regional variants in Scarlet and Violet?

As we know, Gen VII introduced the concept of regional variants. Gen VIII also has this. So, it is most likely that every generation coming after will have regional variants. Since Gen IX will be upon us, there is a huge chance of regional variants. Personally, I think we'd get another regional variant of Meowth, although I would like to see regional variants of the Ralts line, the Onix line, the Bounsweet line, the Zubat line, and my favourite Pokemon: Sableye! I even drew my concept of an Ice/Ghost-type regional variant of Sableye!

I think we might see a regional form of Mandibuzz, especially since Braviary got one in Legends Arceus. As for what the type will be is any ones guess, maybe Ghost/Flying or Dark/Ghost?

While not necessarily a precise Pokémon/Pokémon line, I'd want a Pokémon/Pokémon line with a masculine or feminine presentation having a Regional Variant that looks like the opposite presentation. For example, the Gothita line. Instead of having a feminine presentation, they would have a masculine presentation.

Meh, we have had only like 2 generations worth of regional variants so far and both times they were done in different ways. (In gen7 only gen1 mons got new forms and in gen8 we also go regional evos, and more generations got representation)

And I would like to see how previous mons would adapt to new environments, and I think it’s seemingly more clear that unless something otherwise happens, I think it’s clear that they are preventing getting over a thousand original mons until the time is right, so I think we are still getting some new forms.
