Whether it actually happens or not, I think the Alolan starter's having branch Night/Day evolution forms like Lycanroc would be really cool and innovative for the series. It would be even cooler if those forms were exclusive to each version, giving a huge reason to pick one version over the other.

Yeah, I really hope they do this because
a) it would be cool and innovative and new.
b) I really don't like Litten's or Popplio's leaked final evolution

The thing I'm not so keen on is the version exclusive thing, I was pretty annoyed when I found out that Lycanroc is version exclusive. I think they should just stick with day/night evolutions like with Espeon and Umbreon, but it seems that they want that dosh

Luckily, we've seen from a Japanese trailer that the GTS is returning (via festival plaza), so it should be pretty easy to trade one form for the other.

Not sure about having them exclusive to each version, but I DEFINITELY want there to be two versions of the final starter pokemon. I really like the leaked ones shown months ago, but I think it would be needed at the moment. People seem to be pretty divided about the final starters this time around, specifically the fire and water starter.
It would be a good way to shake it up and I hope they do

And I think they really could do it based on how they designed the 2nd stages. They are different enough from the 3rd stages that were leaked that I could see them definitely have an alternate evolution, especially Torrocat. I would say Brionne the least, because it looks to be just the transition from Popplio to the 3rd Siren stage, but I guess they could go some sort of dancer route for a night evolution?

I think they can as well. Torracat is definitely pretty generic in my opinion so could easily have its evolution go in multiple ways. I think having multiple final stages for the starters will be a win win for everybody

But think if you have already preordered one game and your favorite evolution is in the other, you would be kinda pissed to say the least.

And with that in mind, I do think the middle stages of the starters could go different night/day routes when evolving. I feel like Torracat especially, could still go multiple concept routes with its evolution. The night one could be the leaked one, a Fire/Dark wrestler who only fights at night, and a day form, one that could possibly stay on four legs, have a different function for the fire "bell" thing when it evolves than a belt and be more "Tiger" like.
