Wow, the full Pokedex really just leaked, huh? You know what this means... ...get ready for the final dex update soon boys and girls!

Some interesting stuff here. Silvally's available, huh? Weird pick with intriguing story implications but I'm not complaining, he's up there with my boys Kommo-o and Drampa! Time to get on my knees and pray for a buff, I guess. And no other old starters other than the Zard... ...that's gonna lead to some salt.
 
While I agree this is a fresh change for meta, it's still disappointing regarding the low number of Pokemon. ~600 seems more fair, we need patches/DLCs!

I could finally see Haxorus being good again instead of always being overshadowed by Garchomp and Salamence. It has the highest Attack of any Dragon type and has access to both Swords Dance and Dragon Dance. Mold Breaker allows it to bypass Disguise and Unaware making it a solid contender for a Wall Breaker. It’s also the second fastest Dragon Dance user, only being beaten by Flygon.

Speaking of Flygon, I’m unsure on how good it will be. It has the Ground/Dragon typing, but it’s attack stat it’s quite underwhelming. No Garchomp is wonders for it though.
 
Sorry to open another can of worms, but is it known whether all moves made the transition? Granted, few would notice if obscure moves such as Mud Sport, Rototiller, or Gear Up were removed, but knowing they weren't there would make the game feel a little less substantial.
With Smeargle gone, I would assume they've cut moves that can't legally be learned by anything. A list would be interesting, actually.

Has anyone confirmed how dynamax/giganimax works? Is it like megas or z moves where the pokemon has to hold an item to do it? This has huge implications for competitive
 
I'd like to understand exactly why 400 is a low number. We've had several generations with less than that. Sure, it's been a while, but other than the lower metagames, how many of the 800+ Pokémon were really viable? I'd rather have a balanced metagame with 400 mon than a bloated one full of fillers.

That said, every game since GS has an expanded post-game Dex, so i wouldn't be surprised if the 600+ becomes kinda true.
