Gigantamaxing was in the leak a while back. Not sure how I feel about it. If going forward the "Gen Mechanic" isn't brought forward it locks possibly relevant upgrades for Pokemon to certain Gens. However this mechanic seems SUPER narrow even in the game since the official description says only a sub set of Pokemon that Gigantamax can even do so. The main benefit they talked about also made it sound like custom Z-Moves more than anything else. If I were to guess the Pokemon that Gigantamax are fully evolved which is disappointing since I wanted the turtle to evolve.

New Pokemon thoughts
Alcremie looks cute. Again, seems to be fully evolved if my Gigantamax theory is true and if that's the case I'm a bit disappointed.

Rolycoly looks cool and I'm excited to see how it might evolve. Steampower is an interesting ability that doubles speed when hit with a water or a fire move.

BREEDABLE STEEL DRAGON!!!! Duraludon is very likely to make my team. Really hope it evolves. Going to assume so since it doesn't look like a final form, but it is also 5'11 which is HUGE for a Pokemon that still evolves. Can totally see this being the pseudo-legendary line. The two abilities are super useless unless it gets moves to support them. At least the HA is still live.

The new Gym Leaders are like B/W all over again.

I'm not too impressed by Gigantamaxing either. It looks like a narrower rehash mega evolution.

Though the rumour mentions that pokemon like Meowth and Pikachu get Gigantamax formes.

 

Thoughts on new 'mons.

Alcremie: discount Slurpuff, and given it can Gigantamax, it looks to be a single stage 'mon.

Rolycoly: It's likely this gen's Geodude, and it looks like a Badnik from Sonic.

Duraludon: Steel/Dragon is a cool typing and whilst I initially wasn't a fan of it's design, it's starting to grow on me. The abilities aren't that great though and it's interesting how it can stand toe with Tyranitar despite being significantly lighter.

 

Version exclusive gym leaders give me BW-vibes, but unlike BW, they are different types (so am curious as to how the anime will handle this). Allister is certainly the scariest looking ghost-type specialist and gives nightmare fuel-vibes. Bea, I'm curious as how she'll differentiate from other fighting-type users.

Back in April, CoroCoro ran a competition for the most powerful Steel-type move's name and today they have announced the winner. The move, known by Duraludon is known in Japan as roughly "Exhaustive Beam" or Do-or-Die" (てっていこうせん). This name is a pun based on two different Japanese phrases making an exact translation tricky. This move is Steel-type, Special with 140 base power and will do recoil of 50% of the user's HP.

Maybe Allister will be Ash's eighth gym battle the way Roxie was Ash's when Opelucid Gym was closed... for reasons. Or Bea, not sure.

 

I hope Rolycoly's final evo isn't a trade requirement. I do not have a second Switch and I usually trade with myself.

 

Duraludon is awesome. It may be discount Dialga but still.

 

And Gamefreak: DON'T REPEAT THE SAME SONG AND DANCE YOU PERFORMED WITH LYSANDRE AND LUSAMINE.

I think whoever Ash doesn't battle out of the two, they will be fought by someone else. I don't think the version exclusive gym leaders will be the last though.
