This buff bug has somehow managed to climb to the top of my wishlist now that everyone else is in, out (Midna T.T) or extremely likely (Dixie). I really hope The Pokémon Company wanted to promote Ultra Beasts and that's what Sakurai was told. Buzzwole is just so awesome. I'd be happy with any non-starter, but Buzzwole is definitely at the top. I saw his bit in the anime and damnit if I don't want his intro there being his battle entrance here.

Add me as a supporter! Buzzwole is the only Sun&Moon Pokédude i'm actually excited for, aside for Golisopod. Decidueye would be fine as the Sun&Moon rep, but I doubt he's getting in due to having theming too similar to Greninja. Incineroar is possible, but I just think he'd be boring tbh.

As unlikely as Buzzwole seems, I still think there's a lot supporting his inclusion:
First off, we have seen absolutely ZERO Ultra Beast representation in Ultimate. This is peculiar, seeing as how Ultra Beasts were the entire focus of Sun&Moon. I'd be surprised if Ultra Beasts don't appear in any fashion (Trophies don't really count). To me it seems as if they're holding off an Ultra Beast reveal, be it item or possible fighter. Maybe. Hopefully.
Another point I don't see a lot of people recognize is that any Sun&Moon rep in Ultimate could not possibly have been selected due to popularity. The Project Plan for Ultimate was finished in 2015, before the new Pokémon game was even revealed. All that matters is what Sakurai was shown by Game Freak, what he was told about the Pokémon he was shown, and ultimately which Pokémon Sakurai thinks is better suited to be the newcomer.

With any luck, our buff bug boy should bode well with Sakurai, seeing as how he'd bring to the table a completely unique moveset and playstyle, as well as represent a new and core feature of Sun&Moon that not many other Pokémon can really represent.

This is all I base my hopes on. I know it's gotta be like 90% Incineroar, but still. I'll keep having some hope.

Welp, Vergeben spoke again and said it's Incineroar.

Though he IS implying post-release, so there IS hope. There's also the possibility that Buzzwole could be a Chrom-style Echo Fighter, since Vergeben leaked Simon but didn't account for Richter as well.

Who knows what could happen at this point? If anything they can open up an Ultra Wormhole in any trailer and have an Ultra Beast emerge and invade the battlefield. Hoping for Xurkitree myself but Buzzwole would also be really cool.

I honestly only saw Buzzwole as an echo for Incineroar now but he probs wont be.. but my real question is... WHERE ARE THE ULTRA BEASTS??

Right?!? I thought they'd add them in somewhere but so far theres been no inclusion? ITs so odd to me like megas were included in 4 and brawl i think? Its like every big part of pokemon games were in the new smashes but theres been no sign of ultrabeasts anywhere?
