    Darn, I can't come up with something edgy
    He's not even in the game. Nintendo confirmed that with them taking down the leakdex. Which showed meltan and melmetal are not in the game.

    I know I'm saying he should be in it because he is part of this new gen

    - LGPE is Gen7
    - Melmetal and evo is the last Gen7 Pokemon
    - SwSh's regional Dex is 001 - 4??

    So far we don't know if he is in or not, all pokemon after 400 are not obtainable for the leaker, because he only has a Switch Lite and no way to dump the game for a datamine.

    Also we don't know yet how many pokemon are in or not, because of what happend in USUM, pokemon without a regional dex number.
    Just wait until we can datamine this game.

    And further proof is what happened to the original tweet and some of the images. It was taken down by Nintendo. Aka, it was true.

    Ok if all info is already available, then please tell me the SwSh Dex Number of Mew.

    ALL Info is based on leaks and they don't have access to:
    - rom dumping
    - memory editing
    - save editing
    There are dex numbers higher then 400 and therefore all info about the "full" dex is wrong until the missing ones are known.

    Mythicals aren't normally in the regional dex, but are added when obtained. The leak dex didn't show Mew, which is already confirmed to be in the game, so could be the same case with Meltan/Melmetal.

    melmetal isn't a real pokemon.

    it's nintendo whoring theselves out for a quick buck and that they put it in the show (or even a movie?) will remain a strain on the pokemon company forever.
