    Wow those leaks from months ago were on the nose about Pikachu and Meowth! I can't wait to see Gigantamax Lapras!

    At the same time the only one of this batch I actually like is Butterfree, the other designs especially Meowth and Charizard look horrible in my opinion.

    I like Mega Charizard X much more than its Gigantamax version... Pikachu is cute but I don't like its tail (Eevee didn't change) and Butterfree... its cute

    With this we got 5 more Kanto forms... can we stop with Kanto please? :facepalm: Can other generations gets something new? When will the gen 2 starters get some love? (Sinnoh starters maybe will get a new form next year with the remake)

    So far it's Gen 1 & 8 Pokemon. I'm really hoping the rumors are true about Tyranitar and Hydreigon getting Godzilla & King Ghidorah base Gigantamax

    I would be happy for Hydreigon :yesyes2: :sisi2: (we got a Mega Tyranitar so I'm fine if it don't get anything)
    (I'm still waiting to see Metagross and Salamence :cry3::cry3::cry3: )
