"Surprise, Bidoof! I bet you thought you saw the last of me..."

Yep, it's back! That obligatory start-of-Generation thread again!

What type of Pokémon do you hope to see in Galar? Which animals or creatures do you hope to see a Pokémon based off of?

I hope to see a Pokémon based off of a Kappa, I know we've had Golduck and the Lotad line, but they've never really explored that concept.

A Tanuki Pokémon (again, I know we have Sentret and Zigzagoon, but again, the concept was never really explored).

A Bobbitt worm (I've been requesting this one for two years now, but it would be really cool).

I also think an exploration into the scrapped Pokémon from the Spaceworld Beta would be nice too.

With there being so much snow and a colder region, I am hoping for a Snowy Owl line. I love Owls and I'd love for the regional bird to be similar to Talonflame and not being Normal/Flying.

I would say an arctic wolf, but with the legendaries appearing to be wolves. I don't see that happening, but maybe one of the could be part Ice type.

I'd love to see a Black bear line to complete the different types of bears as well.

Even though it in UK and not Canda, I'd love to see a Moose, but they might save that.

Once I get a chance to look at animals native to England, I will probably have a lot more.

A moose definitely could be appearing and they are in the UK.

How many are you expecting? And for a UK-based region, what kind of designs do you think they might choose?

A beefy Steel-type based on a horse and a train engine as a reference to the term "iron horse".
My hypothetical Galar team:
Spoiler:
Rillaboom, Toxtricity, Grimmsnarl, Coalossal, Polteageist, Frosmoth

Type combos I desire:
Grass / Fire
A real Grass / Electric
A proper Grass / Rock

yes i like grass type what of it

going to say about 90. i don't really have any expectations of getting super close to 100 anytime soon, but hey! maybe this generation would pleasantly surprise me, and that's ok too.

A lot of dragons, honestly, since Dragon folklore is big in the UK.

A unicorn, preferably, of the Fire/Fairy variant or pure Fairy, would be cool. Since I do know one of the mascots in the UK is a Unicorn.

A dolphin PLEASE GOD GIVE A DOLPHIN POKEMON ALREADY. PLEASE.

These are three I really want. We'll see what happens.

As for how many I'm expecting? ~91 to ~106. Honestly, I'm hoping we at least reach the number 900 in the Pokedex, since we usually do get to the next hundredth in terms of Pokedex numbering.

I think all bets are off considering we have a monkey starter in a region based off the UK.

I'm sure there will be some new Pokemon that take influence from the location, but I won't be surprised if we get giraffes or flamingos either.

In terms of number, I'm expecting somewhere between what we got for the previous two games. So somewhere between 70 and 90. Maybe we could get Sinnoh numbers at a stretch. (I think that was around 106 right?)

I mentioned this in another thread but I'll reiterate here, I really hope they go more the route of Hoenn where there's a lot of new Pokemon and only a couple of lines from old generations. Kalos and Alola were both big letdowns in terms of how many new Pokemon were added to the series. It just doesn't feel as exciting for me when there's only 70 or so new ones. Numbers closer to Hoenn and Sinnoh would be fantastic. As far as specifics, I'm open to anything to be honest. I have nothing particular in mind.

I really, really want to see evolutions for past gen Pokemon. Particularly weaker Pokemon, like Farfetch'd and Qwilfish.

I'd also like to see a Pokemon based on a dolphin.

If we get new fossils, I want to see one of them based on a triceratops. Maybe make it Rock/Electric?

If we get a new Eeveelution, I'd like to see a Dragon type one.

A Pokemon based on an Indian elephant would also be nice. I know we already have an elephant, and it's the Phanpy line, but African and Indian elephants are two different species of animals. And I think Phanpy and Donphan are based off of African elephants. So let's go for an Indian elephant.

I agree that some Pokemon from the Space World demo could be revisited.

I don't want to see a new Pikaclone. Instead, I'd like an evolution for an existing Pikaclone.

Also, no more Ultra Beasts. Please.

I feel like this is a thing exclusive to Alola so I don't think there would be any more.

I hope you're right about this. Those Ultra Beasts look like they don't belong in Pokemon, but rather in Megaman NT Warrior.

I wonder if there will be a blacksmith Pokemon? Probably a steel type. There's so much potential for medieval themes because of the UK's rich history. I wouldn't be surprised if Pawniard and Bisharp lare native to Galar. Would they go all out and have complete a chessboard with Pokemon that represented each piece?

I loved the Alolan Forms so I wouldn't mind if there were some new varieties of existing Pokemon too.

Squirrels! Foxes!

I’m expecting a lot of Dragon/Draconic legendary Pokémon too considering all the dragons in English folklore! I’m really excited to see what comes of this for sure.

I’d also love to see past Pokémon gettin evos, Kalos and Alola make me miss that. Unless there’s a new form mechanic these games I really want to see 100+ new ‘mons to be honest. There’s so many ideas that could be done here.

It would be amazing to see mallard ducks, magpies... also I’d love to see a Pokémon based on Dandelions?

I'm really hoping that they'll make ankylosaur and stegosaur fossil Pokémon for this generation. They haven't really been done before.
Was literally just thinking about fossil Pokémon and these two were the ones that came to mind! They’d be great. I think we’re due some this gen!

I think I’ll just wait for them to reveal some stuff first. I don’t want to get my hopes up too high and then get dissappointed. It would be nice if they brough back evos to prev gen mons.

I don't have any particular ideas that are specifically set to the region's setting but I would love...

A really cool Fish Pokemon, my choices would be a Lionfish, or a Dogfish

I also would like to see some pokemon with cool never used before type combinations. Bug/Dragon, Poison/Electric, Ground/Fighting OR Ice/Fire are some i'd like to see

That's all I can think of at this second
