I wish to pet the cat

And I have a feeling the duck is gonna be a buffboi

Saw something implying the game might be open world, but I'm expecting that more so meaning the world itself is...open, as opposed to LA or BotW style.

Here's all the confirmed Pokémon (and likely to be confirmed in parentheses) from the trailer and other screenshots, via Kotaku. Serebii is also reporting that there will not be a national Pokédex in this game.

Spoiler

 

Sprigatito, the grass-type starter

Fuecoco, the fire-type starter

Quaxly, the water-type starter

Starly, a flying-type Pokémon that was essentially the Pidgey of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl(Staravia, Staraptor)

Hoppip, a grass-type Pokémon with no pupils and possibly no soul (Skiploom, Jumpluff)

Psyduck, the water-type Pokémon that needs an IV of ibuprofen (Goldfuck)

Petilil, a grass-type bulb Pokémon meant to populate the lower-level areas (Lilligant)

Bounsweet, another grass-type bulb Pokémon meant to populate the lower-level areas (Steenee, Tsareena)

Combee, a bunch of bug-flying-type bees shaped like of honeycombs (Vespiquen)

Drifloon, a ghost-flying-type nightmare (Drifblim)

Meowth, the cash-hungry normal-type cat Pokémon (Persian)

Pelipper, a pelican Pokémon saddled with perhaps the weakest type matchup: water-flyin (Wingull)

Clauncher, a shrimpy water-type Pokémon (Clawitzer)

Swablu, an airy normal-flying type who eventually evolves into a kickass dragon (Altaria)

Pikachu, because the Pokémascot is essentially mandatory at this point (Pichu, Raichu)

Blissey, a normal-type Pokémon with frankly too much HP (Happiny, Chansey)

Seviper, a poison-type serpent who’s typically locked in blood feud with its counterpart, Zangoose, not yet seen in any Scarlet or Violetpromotional materials

Larvitar, a rock-ground little dragon who’s useless until you hit level 55 (Pupitar, Tyranitar)

Magnemite, which ruled when it was just electric-type but is slightly less awesome now that it’s part steel-type too (Magneton, Magnezone)

Lucario, the Super Smash Bros. fighter who was seriously nerfed for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate(Riolu)

Stonjourner, a rock-type Pokémon that’s essentially an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla set personified

Dratini, a classic dragon-type Pokémon who only shows up as a statue in a fountain (Dragonair, Dragonite)

Right I should mention, and adding this to OP, but be sure to spoiler stuff from here on out just to be safe. Obviously official trailers are fine since you need to actually click them to see what they say

Well, the second trailer has arrived.

Spoiler

Game apparently launches 18 November this year.

Looks like our Pikachu-clone this Generation is the pure-Electric Pawmi.

We also get the Normal-type Lechonk and the Grass/Normal-type Smoliv.

Our Legendary Pokémon this time around are Koraidon (Scarlet) and Miraidon (Violet). Apparently they have powers far surpassing those of other Pokémon.

We also have version-exclusive professors Sada (Scarlet) and Turo (Violet), and a rival named Nemona.

Unfortunately, we don't have a region name or a "gimmick" yet. 😕

The fact that we're doing a "past and future" theme is pretty neat. Didn't expect two professors, it made me think how wild it'd be if they do different starter evolution for each game but dunno if they'd go that far.

I really like the legends and am unsure which I prefer. Though I worry they'll copy Reshiram and Zekrom typing-wise (granted those are cool typings)

I do like the chonky pig but I kinda love Smoliv, it's wiggly expression just perfect

I'm leaning towards Violet just because blue's my favorite color, and Miraodon does look pretty cool.

Different professors is surprising, but nice if they're making more differences like that between the two versions.

I think this is the first time we've seen the new starters in 3D? Still absolutely adore Fuecoco. I love that little doofus.

And now we have ourselves a third trailer!

Spoiler

The region's name is Paldea (not to be confused with "Palkia" or "Dialga").

Paldean Wooper is a Poison/Ground-type.

We also have Fidough (Fairy) and Cetitan (Ice).

The gimmick is also revealed to be a Terastal phenomenon, and some can even change forms based on their Tera Types.

About gimmick and gyms

Spoiler

The Terastal Pokemon thing seems kinda nutty potentially, am torn if I like how they look. They're silly but I kinda like it.

Also apparently you can challenge the gyms in any order but the official site says "You can choose to battle a stronger gym leader" so unsure if it scales which is a shame but for me not the end of world given evidentially gyms are just one part of this
