SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

People aren't speculating about a Dipplin evo because it looks like Applin, they're speculating about it because the leaker with the track record of being correct has been hinting at it.
Only hint I’ve seen that MAYBE corresponds to it is him saying he got two shiny Applins, and that doesn’t necessarily hint at an evo. No other hint really directly hinted at Dipplin evolving that I’ve seen.

Yeah I don't think there has been anything from what the leakers have been saying that really suggest Dipplin will evolve further.

It is and always has been a fan theory that people came up with because to them the concept of Dipplin looking not that different from Applin makes them believe that it can evolve further when really it's just a matter of Dipplin...looking like that.

The "naturemonevo" thing could be anything. I think Dipplin will just be a standard 485 BST mon like Flapple and Appletun as a third branch to a two-stage line and turn the Applin line into a new Hitmon situation and that's that.
 
Only hint I’ve seen that MAYBE corresponds to it is him saying he got two shiny Applins, and that doesn’t necessarily hint at an evo. No other hint really directly hinted at Dipplin evolving that I’ve seen.
People are assuming that like how the Steel/Dragon type would reference Black City that a potential Dipplin Evo would reference the White Forest being Grass/Dragon. Especially as Drayton looks like the final E4 member for Blueberry Academy and some theorise that Kieran will be the champion with Dipplin being his signature Pokemon.
 
Oh god... new incin... (wait, hasn't this leak been debunked as fake..?)
Yeah

View attachment 547177
It'd be funny if the tree was related to Applin but was actually just a 4th split evolution and Carmine got it
Agreed
We’re waiting every night.
And, Fnaf movie is out in just over a month
The thing I'm waiting on now is to see is movepool changes and whatnot to the 'returning' Pokemon. Is Wave Crash Crawdaunt gonna be a thing or nah?

here
ill be devils advocate and say that ogerpon has a good shiny
Ursaluna's defensive stats are already pretty solid all around, that I think it could play defensive well with its new typing, esp if it keeps Bulletproof from normal Ursaluna.

Reminder Bulky Excadrill used to be a thing in BW...
I remember that. Unfortunately
The three Ogerpon Mask forms are Grass/Water, Grass/Rock and Grass/Fire
Or those but ghost instead of grass

This was gamefeak realistic until i saw Ogerpon, I mean that is fake as hell. Hopefully
watch me be 100% correct but the tera crown will grant typeless damage onto tera blast (with stab) and also grant stab onto every other type, but not the 2x re-tera double stab for your original typing. You will also take neutral damage from every type. It will be broken on some mons with underwhelming stab options but great movepools, like dragonite.

it will spark discussion around banning the tera crown, but people push back on it on the basis that individual types shouldnt be considered for a ban regarding tera. another tera suspect test is held, and due to the influence of youtubers, a certain subreddit, and powerful nations tera will be deemed fully legal, earning the tier a questionable legacy similar to gen 5 ou.

The 19 “teraforms” weren’t individual forms, but the Tera crowns. I think
Also, somebody, please pipe up
 
People aren't speculating about a Dipplin evo because it looks like Applin, they're speculating about it because the leaker with the track record of being correct has been hinting at it.
Has Khu actually hinted at it? I follow him via Pokeleaks, but in all honesty I (lost interest) haven't been following too closely, I thought Black City / White Forest represented Archaludon and Dipplin?

I know there's the two snakes symbol, but again, isn't that just Dipplin as it's two worms in an apple? Has he hinted at Dipplin specifically getting an evo since?

I think he did, and two wyrms become a caduceus, or the symbol of Hermes/Mercurey? Yeah, its likely.

Archaludon and Dipplin were revealed in the same presentation.

After it aired, Khu did a “breakdown” of which riddles had now been answered. For the Black Tower / White Treehollow clue, he posted that Archaludon was the answer to the Black Tower half, while the White Treehollow half was still “not revealed yet.” So it can’t just be referring to Dipplin itself, since Dipplin was revealed at the same time.

He also never posted anything saying that Dipplin was the answer to the Caduceus staff riddle. However, we know that the clue is related to Galar. So, people have speculated and drawn connections — Dipplin has two wyrms, while the staff has two snakes spiraling around it and relates to a Galar Pokémon, as does the White Treehollow clue.
 
Only hint I’ve seen that MAYBE corresponds to it is him saying he got two shiny Applins, and that doesn’t necessarily hint at an evo. No other hint really directly hinted at Dipplin evolving that I’ve seen.
It's a combination of hints:

-The white forest representing a new mon (not revealed yet)
-Stating that one gen seems to have gotten most of the love (already clearly Galar)
-The caedus symbol quoted above, which was stated to be related to Galar - and Dipplin has two worms in it. If it referred only to Dipplin, Khu would have given a breakdown already revealing it as the answer.
-Khu caught two new shiny Applin when they already have a living dex

Add on to that that Keiran is shown using a Dipplin in Teal Mask, and also seems to be battled during the BB League in Indigo Disk (face not shown but clothing matches), it's a reasonable guess that he might have a new mon as his ace, and a Dipplin evo could fit.

The assessment that the riddles point to a Dipplin evo is the conclusion of the community that popped up around trying to decode Khu's riddles, and they have a pretty good track record of figuring things out (plus I think they occasionally got more direct hints through Twitter circles). There's a reason we were talking about Blood Moon Ursaluna before it was leaked.

Could it turn out they got this one wrong and the riddles actually point to something other than a Dipplin evo? Yeah, sure, it's possible. But it's not the case that "Dipplin evo" speculation is just based on "looks too much like Applin."
 
My predictions for what the 30 new TMs could be (If they choose to include all IoA tutor moves):
TM172: Raging Fury
TM173: Wave Crash
TM174: Headlong Rush
TM175: Coaching
TM176: Rising Voltage
TM177: Grassy Glide
TM178: Expanding Force
TM179: Misty Explosion
TM180: Burning Jealousy
TM181: Lash Out
TM182: Skitter Smack
TM183: Flip Turn
TM184: Scale Shot
TM185: Corrosive Gas
TM186: Steel Roller
TM187: Terrain Pulse
TM188: Dual Wingbeat
TM189: Poltergeist
TM190: Triple Axel
TM191: Meteor Beam
TM192: Scorching Sands
TM193: Darkest Lariat
TM194: High Horsepower
TM195: Throat Chop
TM196: Superpower
TM197: Mystical Fire
TM198: Scald
TM199: Power Whip
TM200: Future Sight
TM201: New Move
I would personally remove skitter smack, steel roller, corrosive gas, and coaching, but otherwise, okay

I feel like people are giving way too much credit to Khu's riddles when half the time they're purposefully misdirects or nonsense just to grab attention. Plus, if you were to show me the coiling snakes as "this is a new thing related to a Galar mon" my mind would not jump to Applin, but rather, yknow the galar snake pokémon that's known to be all coiled up at all times

After all, both the other Galar Pokémon that got something new are mons that had a G-Max. Could just be a Silicobra split evo or something. Really doubt they'd add Dipplin now and only announce an evo a few months later either way - Don't really see the point in splitting the evo line like this instead of adding both of them at once

Dipplin has 2 wyrms, it could become a caduceus. Sandaconda cant, its only one snake.
 
Add on to the fact that the White Tree Hollow clue quite obviously suggests that whatever Pokemon is suggested by it most likely will have the Grass typing which heavily implicates the Applin line as they are the Grass type from Galar that has the most connection with trees bar perhaps the Grookey line.

This is essentially what they did with Galarian Slowpoke in SS, where they added one evolution in the first part of the DLC and then the other in the second part. So while not the exact same case, the precedent is already there.

And it would be weird for a Doduo's evolution to learn Tri Attack. Doduo only has two heads. What? Are you saying a Pokémon can get another head or something on evolution or even become a group? That's just crazy.

Seriously though, it's possible it could be a Dipplin evo, but arguing it can't be Sandaconda when they were talking about a Silicobra or Sandaconda evo because it only is one snake.

I think that's at least somewhat different because it was Slowpoke getting another evo rather than Slowbro evolving further. You could argue for a fourth Applin evo I suppose

I can very easily see the sand sack it has around its neck serving as the second snake that coils around. I'm not huge for either option of what the answer may be, but I really dont think its unreasonable to think it may be related to Silicobra/Sandaconda any more than Dipplin
 
I think that the list of 30 will include at least a few of the new moves released in gen 9
Spin Out comes to mind; despite the name (in japan its Wheel spin, even) its description has already referred to "straining its legs" rather than "wheels" which felt like purposeful futureproofing.
Triple Dive too, for that matter. While it's clearly meant to go with Wugtrio being 3 eels, the move's name and description easily lend it to further expansion
Comeuppance, Mortal Spin also come to mind as candidates (honestly maybe Rapid Spin too)

It's Gen 8, but Jaw Lock also feels like something they may throw into the TM Pool

And Maybe Power Shift. The move is still inexplicably in the game and it was a tutor in Legends Arceus so like...even if its just a clone of Power Trick it shows they have some intention for it to be wider spread?

Have you heard of the practice of cold reading? It's something phony psychics employ, where they present very vague, very general information, and use that to insist they have found the "truth" without having to actually say it, and thus have it used back at them if the info is wrong.

That's basically Khu's whole trade.
