In the recent Pokémon Direct it was mentioned that "New Pokémon were to appear". This is oddly vauge. But I have a few ideas on what this could mean: Ultra Pokémon- Essentially Mega Evolution x Z-Stone. Some Pokémon gain special looks for doing so (Ultra Lunala for example) but otherwise Pokémon have a Blue Glowing Aura and Stats are each (Except Hp) boosted by 10 Alolan Pokémon- More so what I expect. They can get away with it because in all technicalities they are new forms and it makes patching, if the want to for SM, much easier. Just New Pokémon- With the small amounts of new Pokémon, new ones would be really nice, but unlikely as sad as it is.
