Pokemon Scarlet and Violet leaks show off new Pokemon

Spoilers follow below!

A host of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet leaks have showcased new Pokemon ahead of the release of the two games.

First, a Pokemon Go dataminer leaked Gimmighoul, a new character that actually made an appearance within an earlier Scarlet and Violet trailer.

It’s expected Gimmighoul will be present in both Pokemon Go and Scarlet and Violet.

Earlier this week, details of Scarlet and Violet‘s starter Pokemon and their evoltions began to leak, prompting DMCA takedowns to be filed by Nintendo.

From the leaks, players should expect Fuecoco to evolve into Crocalor, then Skeledirge. Sprigatito, meanwhile will evole into Floragato, then Meowscarada. Finally, Quaxly will evolve into Quaxwell, then Quaquaval.

Moreover, leaks suggest we’ll see new Pokemon in the forms of Flamigo, Tarountula, Vivillon, Paldean Tauros, Dolli, Grafaiai and Nacli.

While it’s possible these leaks are misrepresentative, it’s probably best for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet fans to start muting keywords if they don’t want to be spoiled.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet heads to Nintendo Switch on 18 November.
