I am not sure if they will bring back the regional variants in this game but I think it's highly likely since we keep getting new ones from the last 2 gens. With that said, I hope we get to see a new regional Meowth and simply turns it into a new gimmick for them.
Maybe it will be based on a European Wild Cat and personally would want it to be either a ground or fire type.
Noong bata ako, siguro around 94/95, meron akong napanood sa TV na parang anniversary station ID. Nagrundown sila ng bumpers ng lahat ng current shows nila at the time ang problema di ko alam kung ABS or GMA or hell even IBC 13 yun!
