We saw that already with the Rowlet line last gen: Rowlet is that kid whose mom makes him wear a bowtie to school, all of the bullying he received from wearing a bowtie turned him into a emo as a teenager (Dartrix), but eventually, toughened up by all of that bullying, he finally finds his place in the world as a badass Archer, Decidueye.
Yeah, that makes sense. I do think they'll turn him into the Loch Ness monster as well though. How else do they relate it back to the UK? The UK doesn't have a monopoly on emo kids or bullying. Loch Ness is the only thing I can think of, and it would make sense with the ability to disappear in water.
Could be, but then again, we already have a Pokemon based on the Loch Ness Monster, Lapras (it was originally going to be called Ness in the English version of Red/Blue). A Loch Ness Monster based design might resemble Samurott too much as well, which is of course a quadruped with a long neck. Also, considering the Galar map has what appears to be 3 Lochs, I feel like they might want to make the Loch Ness Monster a catchable Pokemon in one of those 3 Lochs, either Lapras or a brand new Pokemon based on Nessie, possibly even one of the Legendaries or Mythics in the game.
I would rather say that it will just be a large, quadruped water lizard in it's final form, with the ability to camouflage itself, since we saw that Sobble can already do that. I'm thinking the 3rd form will either be Water-Ghost, with the camouflage actually being phasing, or possibly Water-Dark again like Greninja. But we shall see. I am definitely looking forward to the 3rd form reveal, as I can't decide between the 3 based on the first form.
