Article I wrote finally about this aspect. It's pretty slim pickings for Galar in terms of references to people or whatnot from other regions, unlike any other main series game to this extent!

If I am not mistaking, wasn't it teased that an old character would be returning in the Crowned Tundra, someone we know? Maybe that will explain why there isn't many references.

Sorry if you said that in the article. Don't have a chance to read it at the moment, but will later.
Not aware of that - only tease is Sonia is there from Hop, and datamining has some new characters and unname character slots. For the latter, they could be returning characters but we have no evidence for that e.g. character models or unscrubbed names, and nothing was teased afaik. Correct me if I am wrong!

At any rate, article will be updated when the Crowned Tundra DLC happens.

I think what I am thinking of, is in the trailer for Tundra, the person says 'A certain someone' sends us out to investigate. Which now, with what Hop says on Armor, it is almost 100% Sonia.

Anyway, on topic. I think Galar will become more connected in Tundra and if we have a 3rd expansion after SInnoh, which currently there is no evidence for. With who we know is returning, there will probably be connections, especially with the Regis with the two new Regis.

Usually when we get remakes of a previous gen, there is almost always some sort of connection between the two games. But I think Regis may explain why it seems to be 'so far away' which honestly doesn't make sense being that we have planes that can easily get us.

Unless, SwSh takes place before previous regions.

There is probably a 3rd DLC aswell as to the west of the mainland in the datamine there was a few locations there of some interest.

Ah, that makes sense.

Indeed on the point about connections between remake regions and the other region in the same gen, e.g. Sinnoh and Johto, and Hoenn and Kalos.

SwSh wouldn't be too different a time period to other games - Kurt existing in mention now lets us know he was alive at least within the last few years (whenever he visited exactly isn't clear, but Hyde was old enough to remember and be taken by his Apricorn ball skills).

I do recall clouds to the west of Galar - not sure if there is a landmass there too or if the datamining was just showing the outlines of said clouds. But yes, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of even more DLC.

And thanks!
