Atleast they seem different this time. Can't say I'm fond of them. Quite ugly. Though they were always ugly so whatever.
LOL, Landorus looks like a demented bird XD
well turtle, but they are both reptiles, so same difference :P

I guess we now know the identity of the mysterious silhouette. I always loved the Kami Trio, and I'm quite happy and surprised that they're getting new formes! 8D How unexpected!
Signature is a WIP for the moment.
For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.
I think these might just top Shaymin in the arse-pull formes department as far as looks are concerned. Really curious to see what they look like in full.
Also, they could have totally had Team Rocket succeed in getting away with the Kami trio in the anime and have them turn into these forms during a big rescue mission two-parter later in the series. That might have been nicer than having them flee and having no plan B.
This makes zero sense based on the fact that BW's data outright said they wouldn't get new forms, and probably doesn't make any sense in the context of being based on Raijin, Fuujin, and Inari either.
Between this and the leaker saying Brock and Giovanni appear, I'm very tempted to denounce this as fake.
Kyurem would necessarily get another Forme, either. I don't think this data is actually needed to retain compatibility.
I think that Game Freak only came up with the Kami trio Formes into B2W2's development. They're probably just a gimmick they thought of to promote the AR Seeker.
I saw this and I was like "WTF"
Back when Sky forme Shaymin was first came out, I absolutely LOVED it, I wasn't too fond of Shaymin before then, but when I saw it's alternate form, I was in love with it, it became my favorite legendary because of this form, true it's revelation was unexpected and came out of nowhere, but I loved it regardless. Kyurem getting alternate forms was justified in the two hidden moves prior to their reveal, the two were necessary to be created for both technical and plot reasons.
For the Kami Trio, not so much, not only was it unpredictable, but do they need to justify the fact that they are Flying types by making them BIRDS!? Sky forme Shaymin is Flying type, and it's a mammal, which is odd for a flying type since they tend to be birds and dragons most of the time (Skymin and Emolga are the ONLY mammal based flying types), the Kami Trio are wind and weather spirits, and their forms already make sense in the fact that they are wind and weather spirits, these alternate forms were not really necessary at all.
Though that's just my opinion
True that many of us were surprised when Sky Shaymin was revealed, I did not even like Shaymin at all until Sky forme was introduced. Unlike Giriatina and Kyurem, whose alternate forms were already hinted earlier before their revelation, and were justified to exist because of their abilities. and while many people love Skymin, it's revelation wasn't hinted at all before it was revealed.
The Kami Birds were not only unexpected, but given that we already seen them in the anime, they did not really need alternate formes at all.
I like what we can see so far, mainly because they look hilarious, Tornelos especially. I've never really been a fan of the Kami Trio but a grumpy genie turning into a funky looking bird makes them a bit more interesting in my opinion xD
