- Pokédex No.

Well, with one of the lead designers of the game being from the UK, it was only natural! I really love how it makes Galar feel distinct compared to the Japan inspired regions.Also, the game appears to use British English as opposed to the American English seen in previous games (at least in the US). The TV says "It's a brand new telly. Your mum bought it so that you could use your game console." A small but very fitting detail for the region based on the UK.
Adding to this, there's an important thing to note:We got DLC, peeps!
First, Mystery Dungeon DX bait-and-switching the DP fans (it's still coming), but the art style is very storybook-like. Megas are confirmed there, just don't let the enemy Pokémon evolve like SMD when they kill us.
Now for the juicy meat that is ze DLC: part 1 is the saffron dojo guy's dream of having his own story.
DJ Mustard on the Beat, Ho officially deconfirms Gen 9's Pokémon Ketchup and Mustard, we get a toxic bitch/snooty goofball as the rival harem grows, we meet the new Kung Fu Bear that evolves into evil and hippie Po who get G-max (as the kids call em) forms and the other Kanto starters/the current starters as well.
Part 2 we get two new Regis which I shall dub Regizap and Regidge, which questions how Regigigas will work now since the Yellow and Crimson Regi Rangers are here. Most of the legendaries will return in raids/dens and the Kanto birds have G-forms with G-Moltres being the best. And with the dlc, the next split Evo Pokémon to get a G-form is Slowpoke.
And now, I will formally announce my future Sword run, titled Mmm Mmm, Bitch: A Pokémon Sword Cheflocke. Yes, a cooking nuzlocke that involves the currydex in some shape or form and using the switch to post screenshot will be a hassle.
If they were G-max forms, then they'd have had the three little clouds around them in any of the concept art. I'm pretty certain they're just Galarian forms, since they seem roughly equivalent to their base forms, but with elements that would suggest different types. Curious what types, though. I got a Dark vibe from Moltres initially, and a Psychic vibe from Articuno... But looking at the three of them together, I could see them all as Dark types, potentially! Because I'm not sure what Zapdos' secondary type could be otherwise... Fighting, perhaps? It's got much beefier legs, and they've used that type triangle before...So I've heard the legendary bird forms described by different fans as evolutions, Galarian forms, and G-Max forms. I'm personally of the opinion that they're Galarian forms, but I suppose it'll be some time before we know for sure.
