Im sure you'll receive a lot of hate for this but I agree with you TC.
I don't think he'll get hate for it. While I don't think it will be a new Pokémon, I wouldn't be upset if it were. I said in another topic that I'm 95% sure it's a Mewtwo form, 5% sure it's a separate Pokémon. That's not because I necessarily want that, it's just what I think will happen.
I say that cause these forums always seem to bash people with a genuine dislike of something even when theres good reasoning behind it with comments like, "LOL GENWUNNER" or "wahh get over it"
