I chose the protagonist just as a joke, they're way too adorable to be evil.

Arven's facial expressions does give me some Volo vibes. He's apparently connected to Sada and Turo for what it is worth, but personally, I feel like he and Clavel would be a little too obvious so my money is on the new eevee girl, either that or one of the professors/E4.

Leaks say they were in trailer. Probs the machoke looking guy cause Clavell is way to obvious even by Pokemon standards. Probably specifically created to be a fakeout

I hope there isn't any. That is one of my number one wishes for SV, that we finally drop this plot twist villain tripe and actually get back to advertised villains being the real villains. If you ask me GameFreak have proven plenty of times that they simply cannot pull off this type of surprise without creating a stupid clumsy mess of a plot.

Uh, sorry, who is the machoke-looking guy?

I dunno, I think they did it pretty well with Volo.

To be honest, I'm thinking it's Clavell. He's just got this...vibe. Sure, the website says he can be kind, but it's not like this would be the first generation when the built up to be totally benevolent authority figure with no hidden agenda, no siree Bob, turns out to be the villain. Though, I got to agree, five "twist" villains in a row would be a bit ridiculous. But if it's well pulled off, I wouldn't mind.

I pictured him being like Chatot or Carracosta from the Mystery Dungeon games, strict but ultimately benevolent. He sort of reminds me of some of my old university professors, tbh, they seemed scary at a glance but they were usually friendly.

I'm surprised nobody has said the PE teacher looking lady yet.

  • Old-style Sugimori art man: probably secretly a softy. At most, probably Guzma of the generation.
  • Clavell: probably just a firm but strict headmaster who's getting too old for the job.
  • Your schoolmates: probably just friendly rivals in the 3 stories.
  • Jacq: A bumbling absent minded Adaman. Probably researching Teras. Also the Bill of this generation.
  • The professors: teachers by day, models by night.
But PE lady...can't think of anything. If anyone gives off Lusamine vibes it's her. Probably because nobody expects her since she looks the most normal.

She is most likely one of the E4, according to Khu, probably Fighting as she has a Hariyama on her team. There is also a symbol on her breast that can be seen a bit more clearly in another shot from the trailer.

I am sticking to my guns with Jacq. Him being your homeroom teacher means he'll have a connection to you regardless of which story plot-line you tackle. Him being a biology expert feels a bit redundant with the Professors existing as well so I could definitely see him having a hidden role. Plus his design feels like it could translate well into looking deranged imo.

From the sounds of it there's not going to be a traditional E4 this time around, though. Like sure. She and the other teachers could be a part of the Champion's whatever. But it still doesn't rule out anything yet. Especially considering Malva was secretly accociated with Flare while also being an E4 member. Who's to say she's just not using being in the E4 as a cover to draw suspicions off of her.

True, I hadn't considered that as a possibility. Especially since it seems that he wears a uniform to match the school in each version, so he probably wouldn't turn on the PC for no good reason.

I was also thinking about that, too.

A few days ago I was sure that Penny has to be a villain, but now I'm starting to think it's more likely she's this generation's Marnie or Lilie although I can still picture her being a jerkass. She just doesn't give me genuine antagonist vibes.

Same.

Don't forget the previous 2 Evils were kind as well at first glance/when we first met them (Lusamine and Rose).

Who's to say writing fake out villains hasn't gotten better after two (maybe three taking Malva into consideration) generations. Especially since this is a "younger staff" as apposed to a "senior staff" game.

What if the villian is someone who people least expects this time, both meta and in the game. Like I'm still really thinking it's the PE teacher because everyone seems to not expect her. I mean like...who's going to expect a nice Fighting type specialist in a league backed organization to have a darkside.

Old-style Sugimori art man and Clavell are probably going to be the fall guys because she hates her job at the school and they look the most evil apparently. Or like I said the old-style Sugimori art man is misunderstood leader of the "evil team" because he looks the part.

I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone make this connection yet (at least, on this board), but here's something I've noticed ( :bulbanewsnow: may contain major spoilers/contain leaks, may be the best not to read if you want to experience the game story better):


  • A while ago, Kaka said that the flags present in the first trailer were related to the villain or villain team;
  • The third trailer introduced us to several characters, including Penny. Kaka said the game's villain was among the shown characters;
  • The official website says that, despite being your classmate, Penny doesn't spend that much time at school for yet unknown reasons;
  • That other leaker posted an image linking 1)Arven to the treasure hunt campaign, 2)Nemona to the gyms campaign and 3)Penny to the flags;
  • In addition, in that same image, he calls Arven for some word I can't remember, "Nemona a goddess" or something along those lines, and calls Penny a "badass".


I mean, it seems to me they (both leakers) didn't intend to reveal this major spoiler but did so unintentionally. Or at the very least now we know this character is heavily involved with.

I definitely thought Penny was kind of sus when I read her description on the official website. Although I have a feeling she isn't the greater scope villain, but more along the lines of N who was working on behalf of Ghetis.

I wish we had more of an idea of what the villains are like because that could help tell us if Penny is likely one of them. Although the fact they're involved in racing does make me think they might be mafia-themed like Team Rocket.

don't we have 6 twist villains at this point? (N, Colress, Lysandre, Lusamine, Rose and Volo) though i guess my memory of BW2 is a bit hazy; it could be colress wasn't actually a twist
