The most recent update to Pokémon GO may have revealed a little more than it cared to. Dataminers who looked into the latest details were able to discover references to Galar and Galarian Formes for the mobile game. Much like Alolan Formes before them, this could mean that we’ll see some familiar Pokémon in new ways to coincide for Sword & Shield’s launch.

There’s no confirmation at this time, but based on what we know, this could lead to new takes on Weezing, as well as Zigzagoon and Linoone — the only confirmed Galaring formes at this time. It’s too early to tell if this would also lead to new, regional evolutions like Obstagoon and Sirfetch’d, but with the continued growth of the Pokédex there are bound to be other surprises to look forward to.
