Pokégon Discussions - For me, it was Big Tuesday

Puka and Victor, episode 067

From surfing in the Seafoam Islands on a surfboard...

Alolan Raichu

...to hanging 10 on your tail. Gnarly callback!

Welcome to another Pokégon Discussions, where we don't create leaks, we just talk about them.

Damn, since the last forum post, a lot of information has come out. Alolan forms for whole evolutionary lines or the final evolutions, new 'mons, more leaks, and more hype. Also, we got to meet the region's antagonists: Team Skull. Say what you want about them, at least it isn't the usual evil organization. They're just a gang of dudes and gals that have anarchy as the rule of the day, and seek to get in the way of the island challenges. Plus, they "just do it!" and their theme song sounds like it comes out of The World Ends With You.

Female Team Skull Grunt "just doing it."

We aren't even done with the official information coming out yet, nor are we done with the leaks. With the Alola Pokedex leak having been discredited by the appearance of a Kiteruguma (Bewear) pre-evolution, that leaves only three leaks with some kind of credibility left; though at this point, it's best if you stick to the CoroCoro ones. Next month's issue of CoroCoro Magazine will have a comic surrounding Rockruff and its evolution(s). What else, other than a werewolf, will we get to see?

Update: As if on que, a new trailer dropped showing off a new Fighting-type 'mon, as well as showing the Ghost/Ground sandcastles and Bewear's pre-evo in-game. Check it out below:

At this point, the ORAS player database has given people a lot of use, but not that many people are around on the game to help out (with some exceptions in the comments, of course). Pretty sure we'll be getting a list ready for Sun & Moon in the future. If you want to still access that list, please go into a previous discussion.

For more details on what has come out (as of the 19th), head over to GameXplain for the discussion and analysis videos. If you want theories with analysis, give TheOneIntegral a look.

For the sake of expediancy, I will put a list of the trailers that dropped since the original post was made. The first list below:

Special Munchlax trailer | Japanese Trailer
Ultra Beasts & the Aether Foundation | Japanese Trailer
Big compliation Japanese Trailer
UB02 Reveal
