Galarian Forms referenced in Pokémon GO code

Pokémon GO dataminers have uncovered new information which hints at the inclusion of Galarian Forms. These species will appear in the upcoming Nintendo Switch games Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield, which suggests that their possible inclusion in GO could be a tie-in with their release.

Entry data                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
string Key = "general1.ticket.1_description"                                                                                                                                                                                          
string Translation = "A ticket to access the “A Colossal Discovery” special event on {0} from {1} to {2} local time, wherever you are."

Just as Alolan Forms were released far ahead of any Alolan Pokémon, Niantic could be taking the same route with Galarian Forms. It good even include new evolutions only found in Galar, such as Sirfetch’d and Obstagoon.

The data also referenced a new ticket for a “Colossal Discovery”. Could this be in reference to the Colossal Pokémon, Regigigas?
