Mega Evolutionary Lineage

After introducing a new evolutionary format by attaining a new Mega Evolutionary lineage via a Mega Stone, fans have wondered if certain Pokemon will gain Mega Evolutionary forms.

Primal Reversion Lineage

Similar to Kyogre and Groundon's new Primal Reversion mode discovered in the Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Versions, there is a long awaiting reveal for a Primal Arceus when the renovated Gen IV games are recreated.

Origin Forme

Similar to how Giratina received a Origin Forme mode discovered in the Pokemon Platinum Version, it is speculated that an Origin Forme Arceus may be introduced into generational games when Gen IV games gain a remake.
