There was a leak about this new title a few hours before the presents aired.

Looks like there was an internal presentation on January 21st that someone managed to get a few snaps of various screens with details that were not presented in the trailer we were shown publicly.

Quote:
Leaked Images were taken on January 21.
Masuda Posted the Sky Picture January 28.

The pictures were used as part of a presentation, that's why some Pokémon are just shadowed black.
Because they had no reason to show new designs (maybe even unfinished) in that slide presentation.

Quote:
There are 18 Slides in total.
Only 2 leaked, we could get more in the future if the one owning them decide to leak more in the future.


A Pokemon from one of the blurry shots.



Quote:
looking at the new logo it is kinda the Galactic Logo "G" sorta separated. If we slide top-left and bottom-right together they perfectly create the "G" of Team Galactic.

Quote:
he site reports important extra details!

SparklesThe old PokéBall model, mostly made of wood with steam puffing from their tops when Pokémon are caught.​

SparklesPokémon Abilities seem to be lacking in this game. Leading us to think once more that the objective is drawing the SketchDex.
Quote:
This first one showcase 6 Field Features for both Trainers & Pokémon

Field Trainer

SparklesRolling Escape
SparklesHiding
SparklesCatching

Field Pokémon

SparklesHighSpeed
SparklesMountain Climbing
SparklesGliding/Flying

Quote:
The second image is the most interesting one.
It explain the Seamless Battle with no more Turn Based Battles given the introduction of the ATB Gauge System.

This means that Pokémon has their own inner timer that allows them to act independently regardless of what we are doing.

Quote:
Example:

If we approach a Wild Pokémon & decide to battle we must be quick, because while we are deciding which Attack our Pokémon will use our opponent will not stand still and look at us but will attack both us, Trainer and our Pokémon! That's why we can roll-dodge.

Quote:
This picture is crazy because it shoes our Lucario (ルカリオ) against a wild Shinx.
What's wrong? It says Lucario Lv.11 with 102 HP.
While in theory we can obtain a Lucario at such a low Level with enough Happiness, it's impossible for it to have so many HP (More than double!)



Quote:
This other screen shows the Trainer with a Rhydon (サイドン) but as you can see, this Rhydon is actually ours.
It isn't a wild Pokémon, so we can surely get Pokémon out of their PokéBalls even if we're not in the middle of a Battle.

Rhydon's Stats are fine here, even if not Max.



Quote:
On the Left & Right of the Screen, only in given occasions, we can select two options (Even during a Battle apparently)

The Left option can't be recognized, while the Right is the "HighSpeed" Movement function. Riding a Pokémon to move faster, to dodge easier & maybe even attack

Quote:
The Right Icon will change based on where we are and what we will be allowed to do in that specific situation, giving us the opportunity to use the Field Pokémon features HighSpeed, Mountain Climbing, Gliding/Flying.
If we are using one of these feature, the Icon will turn Yellow





Quote:
Bottom Right of the screen is basicly our well in sight Menu. With our Pokémon, like the Rhydon from before, and our Items.
And now we can also confirm that there are multiple type of Old PokéBalls as you can see.

Ultra Ball, SitrusBerry, PokéBall, Mega Ball, Timer/Heavy Ball?

Now the infamous picture.

Top Right キング戦 means "King/Boss Battle" but the last kanji 戦 in particular has multiple meanings, for ex. "to be charged with" so it perfectly links with the idea of Pokémon attacking the Trainers too.

Quote:
Since it has a different HP bar, Larger and in Yellow, we must consider it one of the Area Boss. I think that these are mandatory Boss Fights that blocks our path when Pokémon in those area are incredibly stronger than us & our Lv. Cap (Similar to what happens in SwSh Wild Area)



Quote:
Also have you noticed how Wild Pokémon Levels have been hidden in the entire trailer?

It shouldn't be a case, nor an internal choice to avoid spoilers on the HP bar since the latter is present in the Trailer.
In this game we won't be able to tell the Lv. of Wild Pokémon!

Quote:
In this collage (Via
@meliiow
) we can take a look at all 3 the Field Pokémon & the one with the glow.
Some of these seems new forms, maybe ancient forms, of already known Pokémon like Nuzleaf with a longer body.

Not to be excluded the possibility of clothes/armors for Field Mons



Quote:
The Boss Pokémon has some similarities to Sirfetch'd, like the facial features as well as what it seems to be a Sword & a Shield, the exact two type of weapons used by Sirfetch'd.
But there's more I want to explain before leaving.



Quote:
The Glow is the one we saw in the trailer when 2 Pokémon Battles, but in this case the Leaked image doesn't present any of our Pokémon (No HP bar on the left) indicating that we still have to choose it.
The Glow is different from those we've seen because it's when WE are attacked







Quote:
I decided to conclude this Analysis Thread by saying something that many has already noticed.

"Pokémon Legends: ***" has the Colon in it.
This image with the Sinnoh book on top also features other books below, other stories that will be told in the future with different Legends!

Quote:
New logo can be read “銀”(gin). This Kanji also used in “銀河”(ginga). “Ginga” means “Galactic”. As you can see, it’s resembles Team Galactic’s logo very much. I’m sure it’s NOT a coincidence.

This is probably the most I’ve looked forward to a Pokémon game in a while.

As much as I resent this... it is so bloody true.

The Sword/Shield DLC incensed me so much though that I stopped playing the base games and considered turning my back on the main series games for good. Fortunately, they released physical editions with the DLC on the cart, and goodwill was restored, but Game Freak/TPCi are on very thin ice.

The bloody hideous Sinnoh remakes aren't helping either.

I can tolerate buying two versions of what amounts to the same game year in and year out, but throwing paid DLC in to the mix when every virtually every other Pokémon game in history has been complete on the supplied media is a bridge too #$^#ing far.

Two months between games is interesting. Hopefully they polished this up a bit because that first trailer was rough.

More excited for the potential of this game than any other mainline game so far. I feel like they can no longer innovate in the main line games for fear of "ruining" them. So these spin offs are likely to be the closest thing we get to a fresh RPG Pokemon experience.

This is why they are revealing the new Switch revision before the next trailer

That would make sense. A game like this should benefit greatly from an upgraded console.

Keyword: "should"

I'm predicting it'll get delayed until at least Fall 2022.

That would be the smart thing to do but Nintendo/TPCI would never allow a delay. Gotta keep churning that merch and anime material out. The Pokemon money train doesn't stop for anyone.
