If these are the best that the new Pokémon generation has to offer, we might be in for a downer. Last night, a YouTube video leaked online (which has since been removed) showcasing a slew of new Pokemon alongside what appeared to be Russian game board ratings. Naturally, a large number of people took the video with a large grain of salt, especially considering some of the…design choices on a number of the monsters as well as the series’ long history of seeing fake Pokemon ahead of release.
It seems the leak was indeed real, as Nintendo posted a new trailer showcasing those same Pokemon and suffice it to say, reactions have been mixed.
Here are the new Pokemon:
Tapu Koko, an Electric/Fairy type:
Charjabug, an Bug/Electric type:
Charjabug’s evolved form, Vikavolt:
Cutiefly, a Bug/Fairy type:
Drampa, a Normal/Dragon type:
Togedemaru, an Electric/Steel type:
And finally The Joker Fish…er I mean…Bruxish, a Water/Psychic type:
What do you think of these new Pokemon? Like ’em? Love ’em? Hate ’em? Either way, come November 18th, you’re gonna have to catch ’em all.
