I personally don't believe we'll be seeing Alolan forms for any of the Kanto Pokemon already shown in the trailers up to this point.
These include:
Dragonite, Fearow, Tauros, Lapras, Gengar, Machamp, Aerodactyl, and Cloyster.
In addition, I don't believe Pokemon with Mega Evolutions will recieve and Alolan form.
These include:
Venesaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pidgeot, Beedrill, Alakazam, Pinsir, Gengar, Kangaskhan, Gyarados, Aerodactyl, and Slowbro.
Finally, I also I find Pokemon who evolve in a generation that isn't the 1st to have a lesser chance of getting an Alolan form. Not impossible, but less likely. Having a pre-evolution in a different generation is fair game though.
These include:
Golbat, Magmar, Electabuzz, Gloom?, Poliwhirl?, Slowpoke?, Eevee, Tangela, Seadra, Scyther, Lickitung, Chansey, Magneton and Rhydon.

These are just my own thoughts though.

A leaker said that the Abra line gets a Fighting type Alolan form though, and they predicted the Rattata line, Oricorio, Mimikyu and Bewear's english names, Lycanroc, Gumshoos, and the lack of gyms.

I have heard the rumor, and I was thinking about it when I made this list. It would still feel odd to me if a Pokemon with a Mega got an Alolan form. If Abra does get one, I'm not sure if they'll go the route of giving it an Alolan for evolution, or have it "adapted" and not able to have a Mega Evolution.

I don't see why there can't be an Alolan Mega. It says "Abra Line" not just Abra. I highly doubt there would be any variants that lose it through evolution.

Well it all depends on how big of a part Mega Evolution plays in these games. It looks like (who knows we could get something and I could be wrong) 7th Generation won't be about Mega Evolution but Z Moves and other stuff. I'm not saying it's not going to be in the game because I do think it will be, but I don't think we'll see any new Mega Evolutions in the game because again, I think the games will focus on Z-Moves and Alolan Forms. And if Alakazam had a Mega evolution as an Alolan form that would be a "new" Mega Evolution technically. It would be weird if there was only a single new one.

I doubt they would just not add new ones. I'm not convinced that they're just gonna stop making them.

I guess we'll have to see. I would love to see new ones and in a way it would be more profitable for them to make more, especially because fans love them. However, by not having them, they can market Z-moves A LOT easier. I'm still convinced the opposite

I don't think people will like Z-Moves as much as Megas though. I know I sure don't.

I'm not saying people will (I don't either), but it's going to be the battle mechanic focus of this game. It seems that the "new forms" that were Mega Evolution are the equivalent of this Generation's Alolan forms, and the "buff and stat changes and type changes" of the Mega Evolution are the equivalent of this Generation's Z-Moves.

Sounds pretty reasonable, considering it's appearing as though only Kanto Pokemon are receiving Alolan forms (this, mixed with the fact that the professor on Alolan forms is related to Professor Oak only strengthens this idea). When it comes to split evolutions like Gloom or Slowpoke, I'm guessing it would purely depend on how they handle branching their evolutions. Since Alolan Vulpix will more than likely not evolve into Alolan Ninetales with a Fire Stone, it's possible new methods of evolution may come into play (be it new stones, NPC interaction, or removing the gimmick-evolution for level-up evolution instead). 

I do feel it would be nice to have both Alolan and Regular forms of Pokemon present within the main game - maybe having regular forms be more of a rarity or shown in the parties of other NPCs. So while the Pokemon already shown more than likely do not have an Alolan form, it's not entirely impossible.

Yeah It would depend on how these none-level-up evolution are treated. I could easily see there being an Alolan Gloom and Vileplume and Slowpoke and Slowbro if they were prevented from evolving into Slowking and Bellosum.

I'm not sure if they'll put the regular forms in the game or not. Getting the regular forms may be a perk of transferring Gen I Pokemon from the Virtual Console RBY.

Yeah, I could see treating those mid-stage Pokemon as if they couldn't evolve into their other counterparts as a viable option. 

I'm sure that the RBY Virtual Console is going to be implemented with that in mind, though I wouldn't be surprised if you could also get in-game trades for their regular forms as well.

Yeah in-game trades would make a lot of sense too. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see someone who came from Kanto with a Kantonian Ratticate.
