Too good to be true I suppose. I'm not that bummed out personally, but a lot of people are disappointed. :s

Well, let's face it though, 18 gyms sounds too good to be true. What seems to be the unsolved mystery is the involvement with the major/minor leagues.

Article updated further, given this quote on the official website...
The Gym Challenge is a true celebration of Pokémon battling! Participating Trainers strive to collect all eight Gym Badges, and only Pokémon Trainers who have been endorsed by specific people, such as Gym Leaders, can join in.
Game Informer sure screwed up here and come out looking crap to me.

Dang, that really sucks. I'm curious how the minor/major league thing is gonna work. But still, for shame Gamefreak.

Don't ask the meaning behind the above images and text in this siggy. :P

Once you give a Pokemon a personality, you can't go back depending on the severity and purpose of it. It's no longer just a "pixel" in your box.

The actual number of Gyms you can challenge is probably not 18. The reference to major and minor leagues appears to be game lore, rather than reflected in the game itself. As it stands, Milo (Grass) and Nessa (Water) are confirmed for both games, while Bea (Fighting) is Sword exclusive, while Allister (Ghost) is Shield exclusive.
Each game might have their own gym-leader exclusively. It just like you cant evolve farfetch in shield and much like separate versions have their list of exlusive mons. Well thats one way to oof it

Personally, I'm not disappointed by that, but still, I was surprised twice. Granted, the statement of Galar region supposedly having 18 Gyms seems to be out of the blue for us, and so does the correction from The Pokémon Company afterwards. Maybe the news reporters there are too hyped about Major and Minor League thing that they posted it out of enthusiasm?

I guess that's another reason why it's important to "Hype Responsibly", even in press media.

sigh So, this is disappointing. Never mind, we were never supposed to have those 18 gyms. So, goodbye dark type gym, see you later.
But, it is to be noted that we got some positive news, like the autosave and the no HMs thing. Still, let's hope for the best. A bunch of poketubers, like Ruffledrowlit, Poketips, Tyranitartube, aDrive even made videos out of the news and looked very excited. At this stage, i think game freak may not reveal much, with the Glimwood tangle footage and one more trailer being all that will be shown.

Is it weird that I saw that coming? I mean, I hear the news, I knew it was gonna be some gyms being version exclusive and there will be like 12 or 14 gyms altogether or summing
Now has an avatar to commemorate the release of Crown Tundra. What? It is a Galarian Slowking! It's still an evil Slowking rite? RITE!?

Yeah! This definitely seems like a case of that news outlet also being too excited.

Definitely has it's cons.

They’re owned by GameStop, so should we really be surprised given the crap they’ve pulled over the years?
