    I came across this video, and apparently according to Joe Merrick on Twitter the information mentioned in the video is legit:

    https://youtu.be/fYVpDQRbTbQ

    So it looks like it's very possible we'll be getting USM news sometime around August 10th or a little before even. The SM trailers of each month usually dropped within the first week.

      I doubt it. That video seems like mere speculation. I wouldn't buy into that. I rather see the official sites show news.

        This conversation on Twitter heavily implies that the info in the video comes directly from a reliable source:

        https://mobile.twitter.com/JoeMerrick/status/889901085065965570

        For those who don't quite get what he's saying, Joe would call BS on it if it was NOT from a reliable source. But in fact that this is from a reliable source. Joe knows his stuff when it comes to leaks, that's not an exaggeration.

          I am not gonna believe that merchandise would reveal/indicate new info. Toys revealing/pointing towards new info for new games? I laugh at that. The only source i trust is official websites and when serebii puts new info on the main page.

            The anime community has explode after the new episode title "S/M 37 :Rockruff and Guradian deity from ruin of life"
            It seem there is a huge rumor about Lycanroc's third form debuting in the that episode.

                Official merchandise like this is pretty official, depending on what company it's coming from. It's true that there's a lot of places you can't trust, but at the same time there's sources that you can trust, like the one we're talking about right now which is Tomy Toys. They're based in Japan and do sell merchandise that is with the official Pokemon brand, so they're just about as official as Nintendo and Game Freak. I don't think I can stress that enough, you just need to learn how to distinguish between which sources are official and which ones are not.

                In other news, the Pokemon Switch game is coming out in late 2018 or later, and that according to Nintendo there are not going to be any other core series Pokemon games between UltraSM and Pokemon Switch. So I guess that means no Gen 4 remakes for those of us who were hoping.

                Whilst I highly doubt a reveal would come from the anime now, given its sharp decline in popularity - and they would have saved it for the movie, I would have thought - I have to wonder, if Serebii is giving this credit, if there might not be something to it.

                The 26th today, and this is supposed to be a significant day for some reason? Guess we'll see, although I won't hold my breath.

                I still haven't seen anything on the social media yet, so I'm doubting it. Usually I would expect Pokemon news flooding the social media if it gets revealed.

                I admit it does seem highly unlikely, especially given the high number of rumours floating around in anticipation of something tangible, but...eh. Rumour discussion. Was just something I heard. xD

                  The thing about the 26th was that the Daisuki Club had revealed a "Mystery File" today, and it turned out to be a Lunatone distribution or something like that. What happened was the online community took it as upcoming USM news and blew it out of proportion.

                    It is the 27th where i am. There is no USUM news. So the 26th was a bust. I never took it seriously in the first place.

                      I know this is old news now, but I have a question about these rumors (versions of the same list from two different sites):

                      http://pokejungle.net/2017/06/12/rumor-ultra-sun-ultra-moon-details/

                      http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?658343-Rumors-Leaks-Discussion-Thread

                      If these are actually true, I'm wondering about Rainbow specifically. Obviously that name would be a reference to Necrozma's prism, but also--it supposedly has old characters in it? Could this be a rework of Team Plasma? Team Plasma had Sages named after different colors, a boss whose name came from the word "colorless," and both "plasma" and "rainbows" have some connection to splitting things or breaking things apart... it could also explain why Colress is absent from the SM art book even though Grimsley is not. Seriously, why is Colress's new design not present in the art book when Grimsley's is, especially since Grimsely has even less of a role?

                      Also, it's clear that USUM will involve Solgaleo and Lunala fuzing with Necrozma. Team Plasma fused Reshiram/Zekrom with Kyurem, and while Ghetsis is the one who came up with that plan, Colress wouldn't just have gotten rid of all that research, right?

                        Colress is unlikely to play a role. I don't really want him to either. I rather see a new character that SM introduce be involved with the legendaries.

                          Skip to 5:55 for the new leak because he's just recapping the merchandise leak we've already covered.

                            I agree with Alexander18 on wanting new characters rather than returning villains, but I would love for these leaks to be true. They sound so good...too good.

                              I'm fine with anything, but I don't want to believe a lot of these.

                              I'm immediately skeptical of a massive uncredited info dump like this...especially from boards like that. If it pops up across multiple news sites then I'm more inclined to believe it than not, but...yeah.

                              I really hope we're not only getting Johto Alolan forms, and I wouldn't have thought GF would want to go down the whole "Let's make a fire-type an ice-type!" route again, so that Slugma thing...ehhhh.

                                I really hope we're not only getting Johto Alolan forms, and I wouldn't have thought GF would want to go down the whole "Let's make a fire-type an ice-type!" route again, so that Slugma thing...ehhhh.
                                Alolan Slugma thing comes from 4chan, definitely fake. I don't like the idea of a ice type Slugma anyways because it's going to remain weak with its low stats and bad Ice typing and not improve.

                                I disagree that other regions should get Alola forms too. Kanto alolan forms had typings that weren't as common in the original games like Dragon, Ice and Ghost and typing that did not exist yet like Steel, Dark and Fairy. The Pokemon that were handed new Alolan forms were more of the weaker and less popular ones. And the ones who could benefit from those rare typings and helpful forms would be some Johto pokemon I believe, because they haven't gotten any attention or special treatment and deserve something at least. The Virtual Console release of Gold and Silver is also on the way too.

                                More often than not, Pokemon stuff on 4chan turns out to be true, in a shocking twist.

                                  The Ice-type Slugma looks kind of ugly to me, to be honest...

                                  While that Ice-type Slugma may be absolute crap in battle, it would still be a neat design concept plus people do want some 2nd Gen Pokemon to get Alolan Forms, though I personally want Gens 3-6 to get some as well.
