Good news! Bea is the Sword exclusive gym leader, so you can get both Sirfetch'd and Bea! In fact, those version exclusives and typings have lead some to speculate that if Sirfetch'd were on Bea's team, then perhaps the counterpart would be on Sheild-exclusive Alister's team. However, Game Freak doesn't seem to care all that much for a sense of symmetry in version exclusives these days (*cough* totem Kommo-o vs totem Ribombee), so who knows. Similarly, although people are speculating that the counterpart might be Meowth, others have pointed out that if the Affleck leaker knew of Sirfetch'd because he was playing sword, he may not have seen the counterpart unless a trainer has it, so it's hard to say.Also, [Sirfetch'd]'s Sword exclusive, huh? Guess I'm getting that game then. Or maybe I might pick Shield for Bea. The exclusives are making it hard to choose for me this time around!
I was certainly hoping for a more than just Sirfetch'd, so fingers crossed that the speculation about more Rotom glitches comes true and we get a few more frequent reveals this way. I know lots of people are enjoying how stingy GF is being with reveals this time around, but I so far while I like several of the designs of the revealed mons, I feel less excited than during SM's reveal period because only Corviknight really resonates with me as a team member so far (accounting already for the other obvious reason for deflated enthusiasm ;). I hope this sense of surprise later is worth it :P (j/k, the game will inevitably get datamined before I get my hands on it and I will fail to avoid leaks anyways )
