While we don’t have all of the in-game sprites, goodies claim to have posted the entire Pokédex on Twitter. Be careful though: there are a lot of fake Pokémon floating around, so take every photo with a grain of salt.

Paradox pokemon

Nintendo previously revealed Great Tusk and Iron Treads in a trailer. Last week, the publisher explained that these mysterious Pokémon are rare creatures from the unknown regions of Paldea. Leakers have this”Paradox pokemon,” and have be aware that some look prehistoric, while others look more futuristic. But this is not just an aesthetic difference.

RIP to anyone still thinking about running Gengar. Stay safe out there.

The legendary trio is a legendary quartet

This isn’t the first time Pokémon has had four sub-Legends. That honor goes to the Musketeers of the Unova region. But it’s still unusual enough to warrant a shoutout. Leakers claim that too with the four of us will have a signature attack that halves their opponents’ HP (such as Super Fang or Nature’s Madness).

None of the names seem to have leaked yet, but I’m in no rush to get to know them. These are some of the worst designs I’ve seen since the Ultra Beasts, so I’ll probably catch them out of narrative obligation and then box them.

Um, maybe this has some rather unfortunate ethical implications?

Pokemon Scarlet and purple comes out on November 18.
