I'm guessing that music is the overworld/field theme for Crown Tundra? In any case, it sounds beautiful, and I can't wait to hear the full theme in the game proper if so.

Nothing new to note there, but the fact that it says "Coming Soon" shows promise. Hopefully this means we'll be hearing more about Crown Tundra soon, and possibly a solidified release date in the near future.

1. Wrong thread, try here.
2. On second thought, don't bother, here's Bulbapedia's page on Abilities, do your own research. There's a difference between the information just not being out there and the information being widely available but you don't want to do the work. Don't be lazy.

But to answer some of your questions:

Much less then amount of pokemon we actually have? Yes, there are less Abilities than Pokemon.
How many in amount and % have a statsus rising/status reducing aspect? For that one you can check out Bulbapedia's Stat Modifier page.
How many are form changes? Bulbapedia's Form Difference page may be helpful here.
How many are type based? For that one you may want to go each Type's individual Bulbapedia page, they list Abilities associated with the Type underneath the Moves.
What types got the best abilities? That's subjective.
 
Apologies for the double post, I wanted to steer things back on topic: have we gotten any hint that we could be battling Peony before this latest trailer?
 
Well last time we got an update like this it released about 2 weeks later so, I'm guessing, it will be like October 15th or thereabouts.

Yeah, this is what I was wondering. I had been expecting Crown Tundra to release in November, but when they did the Isle of Armor release date announcement it was only like 2 weeks later as you mentioned. Definitely hoping that's the case this time too and we get it in October.

It's about time they finally revealed more about Crown Tundra. My patience was reaching its limit tbqh.

But as everyone else said, hopefully this means the Crown Tundra is coming sooner rather than later. I adore legendaries and finding out lore about them so that alone makes Crown Tundra something to look forward to, and the prospect of exploring a large tundra (plus it's twice the size of Isle of Armor, which I personally enjoyed exploring) is in itself something I find to be fun and enjoyable. If they show a release date soon then hopefully it comes out in mid October.

Also from a competitive standpoint I'm sort of looking forward to it speaking as a lower tier player. Not from OU (that meta is going to be a disaster when CT comes) but in terms of UU and below. Crown Tundra UU in particular will have many old UU staples coming back like the Nidos, Metagross, Raikou/Entei/Suicune, and Swampert make their return so that in itself makes CT UU a more interesting metagame in and of itself.

Most people were expecting it, i'm guessing due to November being when game releases usually happen and the fact that November still falls under Fall 2020, which is what the website says for the release. But if they are dropping this trailer now then mid-October seems logical.

Guess I better get a team together for Pacifist Galarian Star Tournament runs then.
 
Good to see that we are getting more info about the Crown Tundra tomorrow. Hopefully we'll get a release date as well. Or actually, I guess the release date is what most people are hoping for since pretty much everything else has been leaked/spoiled already (I haven't looked that much into the spoilers and leaks myself, yet that is what it feels like to me). Also, at the risk of being a downer, I do personally not hope that the Crown Tundra releases soon or in October because I was prepared for a November release and if they now release it in October instead, it would feel weird. Especially if the release is during the 16-18th October (or soon before) as I will be very busy that weekend and I will have very little time to play then. And if so, it also means I need to start doing my preparations for the Tundra very soon. But even if it turns out the release is sooner than later, nothing can be done about it and I guess I'm okay with it.
 
If Crown Tundra's development and testing is finished, look out for an early release (that's what I would do, were I at GF's).

November is especially crowded with big releases this year, it would make sense to try to sucker punch some of the competition and/or compete for a less crowded playing time.
