The Japanese Pokémon YouTube Channel recently uploaded an all-new music video featuring everyone’s favourite (and only) sea cucumber Pokémon. The music video speaks for itself and can be watched below.

For those interested the English version of the lyrics are as follows. The first of our readers to record an English version receives a free year of PokéJungle Premium*!

Pyukumuku-muku Pyukumuku-muku
Pyukumuku-muku Pyukumuku-muku
Slimy, glossy, stationary
Pyukumuku is the name. Come and play along.

Stick out your palm and you’ll have a Staryu
Two palms together and you’ll have a Cloyster
One thumb up and there you have a Burmy
Hit the two together for a Pinsir
Do a “V” sign for Victini, yeah!
Joining forces will give you a Vikavolt

Pyukumuku-muku Pyukumuku-muku
Pyukumuku-muku Pyukumuku-muku
If found on the beach they get tossed back into the sea
They are Pyukumuku. Come and play along.

Make a fist and you will have a Geodude
Put the two together for a Weezing
Rock and scissors will be a Dwebble
Scissors and paper will make a Mantyke
Two Pyukumuku together can form a Voltorb, yeah!
Greater focus for a Z-Move

Pyukumuku-muku Pyukumuku-muku
Pyukumuku-muku Pyukumuku-muku
Let’s all play along with Pyukumuku
Throw it from inside you, Rock Paper Scissors!

So yeah, there’s that. Enjoy it and share you favourite Pokémon-themed songs in the comments!

    This is……not one of the cutest songs they’ve put out……It’s fine…….

  • And while this is happening, I’m busy writing, training up my Xander, and trying to pull Vanguard Ike

  • I don’t need to listen to any of these because they won’t be as cute as the Mimikyu song

  • Monkeyfuzz

    It’s such a weird song and video… but I love Pyukumuku, it’s so squishy https://78.media.tumblr.com/0e5a9f32b21995401e2597410e881083/tumblr_ogstnaQNjT1vgwgd1o3_500.gif

  • Xiao Long For?
    • ShinyXatu

      Everyone always beats me to the punch here. I had the pictures loaded and everything.

      • Xiao Long For?

        Been a long time since the last good quality ‘leaks’ so I’m surprised i was first :p

        • ShinyXatu

          I was on Team Real for the Alola final starter evolution leaks, but this time I’m leaning towards fake. There are some cool concepts with the bear’s face looking like a monster and the coral able to regenerate or whatever, but it’s just too good to be true.

          • Golden Govnah

            did u fix discord yet

          • Xiao Long For?

            Eh, they’re only leaking a month or two ahead of time if the game is coming 2018

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I want the grass one and am intrigued by the Water. The Fire doesn’t look great to me, like a worse Ponyta.

      • ShinyXatu

        I think it has potential for a good final evolution, especially if it is Fire/Steel.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It has, I’m just not too keen on it as is. I think these are definitely fake tbh, but I’m often wrong so…

      • zess

        Yea the horse’s design just doesn’t stand out for me in comparison too the other two.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I haven’t loved a Fire Starter since Gen 4, this if it were real would not give me much hope this time around either. I guess it could evolve to be amazing though.

      • Xiao Long For?

        I actually like how different it looks to Ponyta. Same concept done differently.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I am just not fond of it, I feel Ponyta does it in a more simple yet better looking way.

      • If it’s real I feel like its evolution would end up being these best one judging by the past two gens

        • Monkeyfuzz

          If it were Fire/Steel as well probably. I’m wondering how it’ll be when it becomes bipedal as we all know it would.

    • zess

      Boy I would love for this to be real! I need that bear in my life now! Can’t tell what the water one is supposed to be based on….some type of coral maybe?

    • Golden Govnah

      wheres the source

      • Xiao Long For?

        Deleted 4chan thread. Plenty of fake leaks get deleted. I’m not saying they’re fake or real, I just like conversation lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      I love these
      But most likely fake, Grass/Electric starter that’s a dead giveaway

      • Golden Govnah

        how?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Just doesn’t feel right

          I mean a Electric plant bear thing? Unless backed up with more data or it was merely a hypothesis (or a drunken stupor post) it just doesn’t feel right

          But nonetheless I adore all three and would be mostly fine with them

          • Xiao Long For?

            Fam, it’s Pokémon. Rule of cool/design > logic

          • EarthenWarrior

            That is extremely wrong,

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Politely tell me how a snail made of lava makes any fucking sense

          • Ultron

            I think their entire reasoning was that snails have gelatinous bodies and lava looks gelatinous. That or they came up with the name Magcargo and went from there

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Though logically it makes no sense

          • Ultron

            For sure. Like most pokemon. I don’t really mind as long as they’re well designed tbh.

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Agreed

          • EarthenWarrior

            I mean if you just keep ham fisting it no but what does it do incorrectly aside from existing

          • Ultron

            Honestly its very difficult to explain many fire types. We don’t typically associate animals with fire so a lot of liberties are taken in their designs.

          • EarthenWarrior

            True but most of them boil down (pardon the pun) to creatures that produce fire and creatures who are fire

            I mean example Litten produce flames via flame sac while slugma is one who’s body is engulfed with flame

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            because cats irl have a flame sacs

          • EarthenWarrior

            Piss off it’s a oragan that exists in Pokémon biology

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Oragan? ;3
            No but for real, the concept of a flame sac doesn’t exactly make much sense

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’ve studied the concept of organic fire breath and it’s not far fetched

            -You need a flammable liquid or gas, which could be hypothetically secreted via the organ which could either be produced naturally or influenced by external factors like diet

            -Then they need a way to discharge the liquid or gas either by a pressurized bladder or muscle convulsions

            -And the most important part is igniting it via a spark, like a minor electrical charge or a open flame

          • EarthenWarrior

            It’s a wad of lava with cooled rock as a Shell makes sense to me

            I mean aside from the possibility of sentient lava being inprovable in real life but species and it’s real world elements are fairing finely

            Slow moving mollusk
            Lava creeps slowly
            Slime bodies
            The idea works

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            And it being hotter than the fucking sun works?

          • Xiao Long For?

            Dedenne. Alolan Raichu. Have fun.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Always the easy targets

          • Xiao Long For?

            Always using this excuse because you can’t explain it.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Always picking any Electric rodents because you don’t have better reasons

            And I’ve stated numerous times that Dedenne got fairy because of the fairy hype
            And A. Raichu makes zero sense whatsoever

          • Xiao Long For?

            Then why can’t the bear just be electric for the sake of it? You try to dismiss it because you have no counter argument at all

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Explain your own favorite mon. Why would a rhino have fucking hand cannons

          • EarthenWarrior

            They’re not cannons you dumbass, they’re merely holes in its palms which if you read the dex entry

            “ It can launch a rock held in its hand like a missile by tightening then expanding muscles instantly.”

            Not just firing them like a magic cannon but perfectly logical ballistic science aka closing pressure causing an object’s energy to build up until it’s own force gives and jettisons out

          • Xiao Long For?

            Why would they give this to a rhino

            They still function as cannons

          • EarthenWarrior

            Why not honestly?
            Why let an Owl use its own body like a bow and arrow

            We don’t know why exactly but at least how it does it makes sense

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            If magic rules make sense, than magic makes sense

          • Xiao Long For?

            And maybe the bear will make sense lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            Maybe but I want some data on it, maybe it’s bushy hide generates a static field or photo-electro conversion like solar panels

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            If I call a gun a pew pew and say how it fires projectiles in a different manner, it’s still a gun

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Camerupt, Magcargo, wailord half the legends, hell a majority of pokemon as a whole

          • EarthenWarrior

            I already explained camerupt
            Magcargo we just did
            Wailord no idea what you mean
            And legends are off limits

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Damn legends are off limits? I forget you use bullshit rules made up by yourself to win arguments, my bad

            Wailord in the fact that it’s a fucking whale that’s light

          • EarthenWarrior

            I only say that because they’re stuff of legends and half of them have vastly supernatural abilities which cannot be explained

            It’s the float whale
            It’s body might actually be vastly hollow and buoyant

          • Xiao Long For?

            ‘Legends are off limits because they don’t fit my arbitrary rules’

            The Frillish line were meant to be pure water but got ghost smacked on

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            ^^
            It’s literally a fucking pringles head with tentacles

      • Xiao Long For?

        If you’re referring to Butters Law I will judge you so hard 👁️👁️

        • EarthenWarrior

          I’m just not believing anything said at the moment

          I mean what proof is there than just guessing

          • Xiao Long For?

            The fact they resemble leaks that were proven true?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Anyone could fabricate legit looking fakes if done extensive work on them

            -Good artists
            -Taking notes on previous concept art (making sure the confidential stamp is authentic looking)
            -capturing the “Pokémon Aura” which I can sense with these but it’s fuzzy

            I mean remember ol Banana Slug we were sold on it and it ended up being a well made fake

          • Xiao Long For?

            Banana slug was always dubious because it was mid gen and reused the art of old Pokémon

            It’s hard to replicate an art style with a new design, thousands of great fan artists try and fail

            This ‘Pokémon Aura thing’ is literally just the art style and they’re all in Sugi art style. If they’re fake, they’re absolutely amazing fakes

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Both in design and concept

          • Kooky Owl

            Also it’s strange that they are framed pieces of paper…

          • Kooky Owl

            Within frames that are far too large for them

          • Ultron

            Was it ever confirmed fake? I never heard

          • Xiao Long For?

            Its artist came out with it

          • Ultron

            Aw man

        • Kooky Owl

          The grass and water type pictures appear to be in the same frame. There’s a little mark (pencil) in the upper right if you zoom in.

        • Butter Geek

          Y O U – C A N N O T – D E F E A T – T H E – B U T T E R – L A W

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Inb4 gen 8 has three starters that all are part electric

          • Butter Geek

            I’ll tell yall about my fetishes if any Gen 8 starter becomes electric (someone screen cap this)

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            I don’t think anyone wants to know them

          • Butter Geek

            f*ck you,I’ll do it anyway

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      As much as the idea of mono water depresses me, the water starter is fuckin adorable and I NEED it

    • Evos are just guesses. Don’t take them as fact

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        >w<

      • Xiao Long For?

        They could be the real typings tho

    • zess

      Can anyone read the Japanese?

    • Ultron

      Provided these were real and provided the typings were correct, I’d likely be team grass. Again. They honestly have the best designs. (Chesnaught excluded)

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        I want the water one
        I wanna hug it and snuggle it and never let go
        It’ll be my boi

        • Ultron

          It looks spooky. I was thinking water/ghost

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            YES

    • Butter Geek

      I love the designs, hate the typings (except fire)

  • Schlong Shrub Seraph

    Pyuku is perf

  • zess

    Just listened to the song….. as much as I love Pyukumuku I don’t like this song. It just dosent vibe right with me.

  • Schlong Shrub Seraph

    So those starters can’t be image traced… we are off to a start

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      Interesting! They might be just wacky enough to be real (reminding me of how the final alola starter leaks were so absurd and confident in the wacky direction they took that they just about had to be real… though I think I was on team fake then!)

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        Trueee

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          Like the bears gimmick reminds me of decidueye (both having really specific hard to come up with ideas). If this is truly fake, the artist has a wonderful imagination.

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Agreeddddd

  • Golden Govnah

    supposedly its been debunked due to Grammar mistakes

    • Xiao Long For?

      Rip

      • Golden Govnah

        but people have “debunked” the final evos of gen 7 before for the same reason

        • Xiao Long For?

          True, could be a faulty Japanese > Chinese translator or nonsense shorthand

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      The starter leaks?

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      *Dying noise*

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      Yeah it’s a shame too because I actually really liked them too.

  • belmad

    Rock Paper Scissors… reminded me that riddle leaker.

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      What about rock paper scissors?

  • Xiao Long For?

    Until those get proven 100% fake I’m calling the horse Coalt 👀

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      If they turn out to be real I’m very interested in seeing what the coral one turns into. It’s very different looking and could be a cool looking mon.

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Shame it’s rumored to be just water. Water/ ghost or perhaps our first water/poison starter (with an anemone theme) would be sick!

        • TheGentlemanMonster6893

          I would have pegged it as water/rock like Corsola, but whatever I guess

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Water one maybe Corill (Coral+Krill)

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        Ayyy

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      Or charcolt

  • Butter Geek

    This song would be hilarious as a parody, going into some dark cult history after they make the Z

  • TheGentlemanMonster6893

    Can we just take in the idea that if the starters really are fake the artist who drew them is REALLY talented? Like the drawings are super good.

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      Not only talented but creative/ imaginative.

      • TheGentlemanMonster6893

        Exactly.Not only is the execution done very well, but the general designs are pretty great.

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          Plus they made all three in Earthen’s taste? That’s incredible! XD

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      THE WATER ONE IS SO CUTE!!!!! <3

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Plus grass/electric would be soooo cool. I’ve always wondered how that could be done conceptually.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I tried a sea anemone

      I called it “Anenemi”

      • Xiao Long For?

        Days without Earthen shilling: 0

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          Is it possible to go into the negatives?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well a bioluminescent plant that glows via electrical change works too, I merely gave my 2 cents on how it could be done conceptually like he asked

    • Xiao Long For?

      A lawn mower, perhaps? :p

  • Golden Govnah
    • Monkeyfuzz

      Obviously fake.

    • Chaos

      I remember those fakes

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      I’m crying from the bottom one

      • Butter Geek

        sammurott is frickin dope

      • Monkeyfuzz

        It doesn’t even make sense, why would that awesome looking otter turn into that weird shell-head.

        • Butter Geek

          shell sword-two shell swords-2 shell swords and sword armor
          Where’s the problem?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It looks too different, it must be a fake.

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      Ugh gen 5 starter evos have so many flourishes and are so overdesigned… worst gen starters imo

      • Golden Govnah

        just saying these look alot less detailed compared to the official art we got so hope isnt dead yet

    • EarthenWarrior

      Love the top right

      • Butter Geek

        Awwwww, little Earthen, still mixing up left and right

        • EarthenWarrior

          Piss off butters

    • Xiao Long For?
      • Golden Govnah

        The Japanese on the Poppilo final is off

        • Xiao Long For?

          What kinda names are Owl3, Tiger3, and SeaLion3 lol

          • Golden Govnah

            see this is why you cant take grammar mistakes as almost fake

          • Kooky Owl

            Codenames

          • sarcasm

      • Tfw the Kalos starters are actually fake leaks GameFreak took and put in the game because they are just THAT bad

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Delphox is sooooo close to looking cool. Like sooo close. But those ears and it’s face……

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      I wasn’t really paying attention to gen 5 at this time, but were those leaks? Cuz if so, are they also framed? 😀

      • Golden Govnah

        yea they were

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      I remember those. That was an interesting time too. Never would have expected to see those on 4chan

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    So as a huge fan of Pokémon conquest, id really like if all of the official art for each Pokémon got updated to be in powerful, dynamic stances like they were in that game. Seeing samurott, chesnaught, serperior, and delphox look so stiff is kinda irritating.

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      I mean, this is a game where we fight monsters. The least they could do is make each one look like a worthy opponent willing to battle by updating their stances and making each one look super cool like conquest did. You could have a jigglypuff in conquest and it looked like it had as much angst as zekrom.

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      Agreeed

    • Monkeyfuzz
      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Is that first one conquest? It looks familiar and sooo badass

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I think both are but I never played it so idk.

  • EarthenWarrior

    I can’t tell if this is impressive or sad

    I’m juggling playing Splatoon on the switch while argument posting on my phone while I continue to soft reset for the Celebi

  • Butter Geek

    What I would want for the Leaks’ designs:
    Grass/Rock Cave bear (extinct species) (the starter hides in a cave)
    Fire/Steel bipedal cyborg/terminator like horse with some sort of blaster on its hoof or head (as an unicorn horn)
    And I have two ideas for the water
    Water/Dark humanoid, with internet culture themes sprinkled in (it argues and gets angry, it likes to mock others, but it’s also sad inside)
    or Water/Ghost. I have no idea for what it could be, but that typing just feels right for it

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      HUMANOID!? DON’T EVEN
      Water ghost is great

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Grass/Rock is a decent type, though I would be more intrigued by the idea of Grass/Electric.
      Nope.
      Noper. Though Water/Ghost would be good as we’ve had less of them.

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    So besides starters, region theme, and legends, who’s thinking of going into gen 8 relatively blind? I’m considering it so it brings me back to my childhood of going into gen 3 and 4 blind but I don’t know if I have the self control to not watch trailers and look at leaks!

    • Butter Geek

      not enough self control, plus discussion here and leak/trailer season can be real fun

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Right? I love leak season with y’all and dissecting trailers, and I’ve heard horror stories from my friend who’s brother raised a male salandit to level 50 or something because he had no idea. Idk….

    • Xiao Long For?

      Same, I’ll be outy after E3

      • Butter Geek

        awww…

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        That seems like a good time to leave too.

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        Once we know as much as they tell us, im dipping before leaks

    • Monkeyfuzz

      No I want to be able to see the game when I play it.

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I don’t understand what you mean?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I was joking, I know you didn’t mean literal blindness.

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            Oh gotcha. That went right over my head.

      • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      • Xiao Long For?

        Then just get glasses 👀

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          I CAN SEE CLEAAAARLY NOW THE RAIN IS GONE

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Glasses are not a cure for blindness.

    • Ultron

      F*ck that

    • Absolutely

      I think why Pokémon has gone a bit bland for new games for me is due to me already knowing everything by the time I get it.

    I’m quite scares about those supposed leak. The water starter is cool but not that water type in design. The grass one is too standar like (the chespin/oshawott/piplup zone) and the fire one just screams fighting type with that punching-like nose

    • How dare you group Piplup with much worse starters

      • joker901

        Cause they are copy-paste designs but sure piplup is the best of the group

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      Wouldn’t worry about. the text is a mess with weird and potentially straight up wrong grammar. GF likely wouldn’t frame concept art that has errors like that. They’re likely fake…..that said I’m kind of said as I really like them……..

  • Xiao Long For?

    My guesses for starter types even if the leak included them and they’re irrelevant

    Bear
    Grass/Electric based on its bioluminescence (and the leaker’s type)
    Grass/Dark based on bear stereotypes
    Grass/Rock combining the bear and its cave

    Horse
    Fire/Steel based on mechanical transport (such as bikes) combined with horses (maybe even a horse and carriage/chariot fusion) (and the leaker’s type)
    Fire/Flying based on a pegasus (would be our first pegasus mon, but may be an issue because Charizard)
    Fire/Fairy based on a unicorn (may be deemed too similar to Rapidash)
    Fire/Fighting based on the best type

    Coral
    Water based on the fact it’s hard to give it another type (and the leaker’s type)
    Water/Ghost based on coral bleaching – although the coral isn’t actually dead whilst it does this, it can die if it does it for too long and rids of its symbiotic relationships. Could also be a pun on ‘white as ghost’ or ‘wight’ as in dead.
    Water/Rock because coral (may be deemed too similar to Corsola)

    • joker901

      actually I can easly see the coral being either ghost, dark, ground, fairy. The real problem is that it’s difficult to see water in it XD

    • Xiao Long For?

      *motorbikes

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Grass/Electric or Grass/Rock would be my preference, much as I love Dark types.
      Fire/Steel or Fire/Fairy work for me, one has only been used once and the other an unused type.
      Water/Ghost please.

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I think a lot of people want a grass/ dark raccoon

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          *tanooki

          • Butter Geek

            It’s partially because of the Leak from some time ago

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I’d like that too. I just think the other 2 types for the bear could be more interesting.

    • I just realized the grass starter is literally Butter’s fanmon

      • Xiao Long For?

        Don’t insult fakebear like that pls

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It’s a similar concept though.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        But better If it’s Grass/Rock then yeah.

      • Butter Geek

        There are diffrences, but yeah, pretty simmilar if it’s Rock in the end

    • Butter Geek

      I predicted a Fire/Fairy bipedal Unicorn some time ago, kinda hope that’ll happen

      • Xiao Long For?

        > Bipedal horse

        D I S G U S T I N G

        • Butter Geek

          GF will never do a quadruped Fire starter

          • Xiao Long For?

            btfo patternkid

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            GF will never make a ghost starter

          • Butter Geek

            What
            Who said that before Gen 7?
            The fact that GF changed quadruped to bipedal 3 gens in a row has to be saying something

          • Xiao Long For?

            “What
            Who said that before Gen 7?”

            Um quite a few people actually lol

            People also said that a starter wouldn’t change its dual type but look at Dartrix

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      I like how charizard is in your logic against fire/flying but we’ve had three starters with fire/fighting…

      • Xiao Long For?

        Because it’s the best type

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      The boi

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • Xiao Long For?

      Late af dude, half the comments on the articles are about these things :p

    • They could be real

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Want to believe you but it seems way too early for it

        • Butter Geek

          How the f*ck is it too early?
          It’s been in development since some time after Sun/Moon’s release

          • Xiao Long For?

            Is there need for the language lol he was just sharing his thoughts

          • Butter Geek

            I don’t want to insult him or anything, I just can’t get how he can think it’s STILL too early

          • Xiao Long For?

            Because the game may be a 2019 release and nothing this concrete has leaked this far in advance?

        • Xiao Long For?

          You probably said that in 2016 too :p

        • Not at all. Pokémon concepts are some of the earliest things done in development

          • Xiao Long For?

            It does seem weird they’d leak this early, unless it’s a 2018/early 2019 release. I’d say if April comes with no contradiction of these beforehand we could probably assume they’re fake.

      • TheGentlemanMonster6893

        I mean how would you account for the grammar errors on the page then? I love these designs, but I can’t get past. If the grammar was correct or at least made a little more sense then I’d be all on board, but it doesn’t look like ti is. I can’t believe GF would frame concept art that would have grammar errors instead of just fixing it before framing.

        • Xiao Long For?

          Apparently the Alola starter leaks had grammatical errors as well. And, well, if you’re framing concept art you care more about the visuals than the art.

          • TheGentlemanMonster6893

            Did they tho? Iirc the text was too blurry to fully read it all and the stuff they could read was more or less fine. Do you have any examples? I’d like to jog my memory if this is the case.

          • Xiao Long For?

            No because I don’t tend to remember obscure details of leaks from years ago, it’s just heresay from what I’ve heard

          • Xiao Long For?

            *visuals than the writing lol

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          What are these grammar errors?

          • TheGentlemanMonster6893

            Apparently like “view front” instead of “front view” on the horse page and apparently using different tenses for the water starters page when referring to it being happy and mad. It could be stuff that’s neglegible, but I’m not so sure.

          • Xiao Long For?

            I wouldn’t say ‘view front’ is terribly incorrect grammar because it’s not grammatically incorrect from what I can tell. It’s a command (‘view the front’) rather than a label (‘this is a view from the front’), which is important because concept art is there to show how something works – in this case, directing the artist to look at the front of the ‘mon to see what it’d look like with another perspective. For example, its ears look totally different from the side, whilst the front shows how they’re actually laid out.

            Tenses are also really minor because the person looking at the art will know what it means. Also, considering the fact that only one visual shows it with a part of it broken, it’d make sense if they’re treating it as an individual – ‘this is how it has/will act in this scenario’ and then ‘this is how it is acting in this scenario’.

            Then again this is from an English speaker.

          • TheGentlemanMonster6893

            You’re not wrong that in English it’s not a deal breaker, bit in Japanese where each set of characters are used very specifically it seems a bit odd that someone that is Japanese would make mistakes like that. Especially if it’s supposed to be professional work. They could be real, but I’m just not sure

          • Xiao Long For?

            Concept art is no stranger to grammar errors. Most English concept art I’ve seen is very light on words and it’s not uncommon for it to be unclear or even outright erroneous. They could obviously be fake but I don’t think the grammar is a be all end all

          • TheGentlemanMonster6893

            Yeah, but that’s English. The Japanese language is very specific and often uses different characters to depict context rather than using general words to do it. That’s why English and Japanese are so very different.

          • Xiao Long For?

            Grammar mistakes happen in any language. Heck, for all we know the incorrect Japanese could be because they’ve got foreigners working on the concept art. They wouldn’t be the first Pokemon made by a westerner.

        • What matters is having the art up for everyone on the project to see rather than shitty grammar

          • TheGentlemanMonster6893

            Yeah, but even if they were writing on short hand you’d think someone that is fluent in Japanese wouldn’t make grammar errors just to do that.

          • Wouldn’t be the first time

  • Butter Geek

    I just realised I have basically just 1 mon I really don’t like

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      ??

      • Butter Geek

        Lickylicky. I can forgive GF making Lickytung, it was Gen 1 but the fact that they made an evo to it that isn’t any better in Gen 4, is just annoying me a lot.

  • I still find it weird Hit changed voice actors after XV2 (He was voiced by Aaron Roberts in XV2, then he was voiced by Matthew Mercer in Super and FighterZ). I do like Matthew Mercer as Hit though

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I guess they wanted Mercer for Super and FighterZ to match that. It happens, it might be Roberts had other projects or something else too.

      • True. Reminds me of how regular Lucina was voiced by Laura Bailey in FE Heroes, but every other variant of her was voiced by Alexis Tipton. Tipton does an amazing job at replicating the voices of characters Laura Bailey has voiced that she couldn’t voice that time for whatever reason. I’ve only heard her as Lucina and Kid Trunks, but she’s really good

  • Butter Geek

    Can we just all think about how Lickylicky could’ve been cool if GF made it Poison with Toxic salvia?

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      Gen 8 regional form!

      • Butter Geek

        I’m thinking about adding Poison region Lickylicky to my fakemon region

    • Xiao Long For?

      You could argue this for nearly any monotype evo.

      “Imagine how cool a Grass/Electric wire based Tangrowth could be”
      “Imagine how cool Magmortar would be if it was Fire/Psychic” etc

      Lickylicky looks like a Gen 1 evo of a Gen 1 Pokemon and I really appreciate that tbh

      • Butter Geek

        But… many of gen 1 mons were dumb and just plain worse than Gen 4.
        Tangrowth doesn’t feel like a Gen 1 mon and that helps it a lot. Same with Electavire, Magmortar and especially Rhyperior and Magnezone.

        Gen 1 Pokemon like Muk are honestly dumb designs, but many people like them because they’re cool. Lickytung is ”Gen 1 dumb” but isn’t cool or cute or anything. It’s a mon that GF should forget unless they want to improve it, which they could easily do with a Gen 4 evo.

        • Xiao Long For?

          “Oh it’s dumb but it’s cool”

          If people like it, they’ve done their job. It’s not dumb at all. Stop treating your opinion like it’s gospel lol

          • Butter Geek

            By dumb I mean ”Just a pile of Toxic goo with a mouth”. They still managed to male it look good, but it isn’t that creative or complex. Lickytung isn’t a very complicated or interesting design, it isn’t cool-looking or cute. Lickylicky is just that, with the design being just a little bit better.

          • Ultron

            Tangrowth is just bigger tangela though lol.

          • Butter Geek

            The shape gives it a ”friendly monster” feel. The long black and red arms just look good. Tangela needed an evo that improved it and Tangrowth is just that.

          • Xiao Long For?

            Complicated =/= good

  • EarthenWarrior

    Feb 8 starts a new opening for series sun and moon
    Which is also the Ultra Guardians start so we might actually get a glimpse if Ash does indeed catch Poipole

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Im gonna take a crack at these leaks:

    Grass starter:
    Grass/ Electric: (per the rumors). The lighting up of its fur to scare away predators is genius. Plus, I’m intrigued that we could potentially get a slow electric type (since despite bears reaching pretty fast speed irl, they aren’t generally known as fast animals).
    Grass/ Dark: what with the cave in its concept art. Though the bear doesn’t seem too evil in its design. Or even scrappy at all (per Pancham).
    Grass/ Psychic: with the whole “creating illusions” idea. As it evolves, it harnesses its psychic powers to create more powerful illusions.

    Fire starter:
    Fire/ Steel: (per the rumors). I liked the earlier suggestion about the chariot fusion. Though a steel saddle, or even like a chrome pipes theme (horsepower anyone?) could be cool.
    Fire/ fairy: If it’s gonna be a pegasus, this could be really a really cool typing for a mythical/ mystical creature.
    Fire/ ground: idk, i know Earthen would hate to have this not go with a bull starter, but a horse kicking up lots of dust around it and with desert mustangs existing irl, this could go a really cool direction (however mudsdale in gen 7 might make this redundant).

    Water starter:
    Water: (per the rumors). I’d be disappointed if this was the only monotype this gen, since it looks like it has so much potential. I have a hard time deciphering what it even is, though I’ve heard coral as its inspiration floating around here. We’ve also had a lot of water monotype starters so let’s keep up the interesting type combos.
    Water/ ghost: it reminds me a lot of Phantump. It’s eyes are creepy yet cute, which is perfect for a beginner ghost.
    Water/ ice: its small enough it kinda reminds me of krill, bacteria, plankton, etc. and a lifeform stuck in the ice would be really cool. Plus how have we not had a water/ice starter yet?

    • Butter Geek

      We probably won’t see a quadruped Fire starter tho

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Idk dude never say never. The patterns people read into in these games never are 100%. I mean typhlosion is already kinda going against that pattern, but just barely. I mean this goes with anything, not all of the regional birds have three stages, we had two electric mouse pokemon in gen 3, and we had a split evo regional bug in gen 3. We’ve had three fire/ fighting types in a row, we’ve had a starter’s first form with a dual typing (bulbasaur and rowlet). There are no true patterns in pokemon, and some patterns are broken in a later gen.

        • Butter Geek

          The whole gimmick of Plulse and Minum was that there were two.

          • Xiao Long For?

            And that changes the fact they broke a pattern… How? The only other Pikaclone with a gimmick is Dedenne promoting Fairy

          • Butter Geek

            Every pikaclone has a gimmick, just it isn’t always related to its gen.

          • Xiao Long For?

            Um? No.

            Pachirisu, Emolga, and Togedemaru have like no gimmicks at all lol.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Pachirisu won a tournament, Emolga made Elesa’s gym a living *bad place*, and Togedamaru’s gimmick is that it is the best one.

          • no

          • Butter Geek

            I could agree with Pachrisu, but Emolga is a Flying pikaclone and Togedemaru is a metal pikaclone. Doesn’t mean they’re bad, they are more than just a gimmick, but they are *blank* Pikaclones

          • Xiao Long For?

            Those aren’t gimmicks. That’s like saying Primarina being fairy is a gimmick. It’s not. It’s part of its design lol

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            Exactly, that’s breaking the pattern.

          • There was no pikaclone pattern in gen 3

            Gen 1 had Pikachu
            Gen 2 made a pre-evolution. That doesn’t count. (And Marill isn’t a Pikaclone you degenerates)
            Gen 3 had Plusle and Minun which was to demonstrate double battles in a marketable way

            The pattern wasn’t a pattern until Pachirisu

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            You’re just furthering the point.

          • I’m not on a side im just saying that this pikaclone stuff wasn’t until Gen 4

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            Got it. I mean the pikaclone pattern being a pattern that has been broken is just evidence suggesting that no pattern is safe.

          • There aren’t even really patterns.

            There are always regional bugs/birds/rodents not because of some pattern but because they are easy early game fodder.

            Fire Starters are never quadruped because GameFreak doesn’t like good fire type designs not because they just arbitrarily decided so.

            So much of this is arbitrary bullshit that just leaves me rolling my eyes

          • Xiao Long For?

            Pikaclone is definitely a pattern tho. It’s been played with less than any other (regional birds and rodents have had type and evo stage played about with, we’ve had a region with no obvious single bug and they all vary a lot in power) and it’s a constant we can assume now as much as the fact we have starters.

          • Ultron

            The pikachu one is definitely a pattern though..there’s no way they just happen to make a non-evolving electric type rat every generation. The early bug/rodent/bird is something else entirely. Gen 5 kinda even broke this by having double bugs, double early normal types, and a dark kitten thrown in there.

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            gen 1 had double bugs and birds.

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            all im saying is these are patterns but that they aren’t always 100%.

          • Ultron

            Nah I agree with you. They’re “patterns” until Gamefreak decides they’re not

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            basically the only thing we KNOW FOR SURE is that each starter is 3 stage.

          • Xiao Long For?

            And that every odd Gen adds a mushroom mon… like seriously that outlasted Gyms

          • Xiao Long For?

            Johto did double bugs first D:<

          • Xiao Long For?

            or kanto lol nvm

          • Ultron

            Hm, true.

          • Ultron

            Oh, I completely forget since they’re both sh*tmon. God, I hate Ledian.

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            are you seriously saying the regional bug/bird/ rodent isnt a pattern? They could literally have the first few pokemon you find be anything else. ANYTHING. but what were the first few we saw of gen 7? those three…

          • Ultron

            I would love for them to break it. I hate it. It’d force them to get more creative than, “hm, okay, it’s a new gen so I guess we should make another rodent that is similar to Pikachu.”

          • Sunniera 2.0

            How about we agree on the fact that we disagree, and that Gen 2’s Pikaclone is the worst Pikaclone.

          • How about bullshit and Gen 2 didn’t have a god damn pikaclone

          • Sunniera 2.0

            It’s like you are saying that Santa isn’t real.

          • Xiao Long For?

            > Zigzag tail
            > Evo with rabbit qualities
            > Prevo introduced the Gen after

            It’s the closest thing we have to Gen 2 Pikaclone and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s meant to invoke the likeness of Pikachu

          • That’s ridiculous. The only reason it’s even associated with Pikachu is the Pikablue Rumors.

            If we fit every Pokémon that had similar design aspects together in groups we would be here all day

          • Xiao Long For?

            The Pikablu rumours were strengthened by its resemblance to it tho

            And nothing else across the first two Gens that aren’t directly related mirror each other as well

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            eh idk about marill.

    • Xiao Long For?

      I have to agree that these are strong possibilities

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        You had a lot of the same. Great minds think alike!

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      GHOSTUUUU >w<

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Just read through the entire thread. These rumors that could potentially be leaks are quite interesting. If they do happen to be leaks (by saying leaks I mean that they are actually real) which starter(s) do you think would fit Ash for in the Gen 8 Anime?

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      Probably the hoise

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      I could see him getting the water starter. I don’t think the fire one fits him and the grass one could, but I’m not sure.

    • Butter Geek

      Depends on the evos reallt

    • Xiao Long For?

      I think the fire horse suits him well just based on first stage, but honestly Water wouldn’t be terribly odd for him either. I think that the Grass one will be the Oshawott of the season (like Piplup, Oshawott, Chespin, and possibly Rowlet and/or Popplio by the end of SuMo)

      • Butter Geek

        I hate it when a starter doesn’t evolve and just becomes Comic relief.

        • Xiao Long For?

          Surprise a kids show has cute comic relief

          • Butter Geek

            They should use 1 stagers like Komala for that instead of Starters

          • Xiao Long For?

            No? Starters are way more marketable. Because that’s what it’s about. Marketing. Y’know, the stuff that keeps the show alive and running?

          • Ultron

            They should just give the comic relief to the companions like D/P did with Dawn and Piplup

        • Oshawott is my favorite of Ash’s Pokémon tho…

          • Butter Geek

            But it would be cooler if it evolved and got character development that way

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      The horse seems to have the most personality (they really like giving him pokemon with a lot of personality (treecko, rowlet, froakie, chimchar), but I kinda want him to have the bear.

    Gosh I could watch concept interview for hours.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Just watched the new song. I think my all time favorite as of now would have to be the Mimikyu song (I might be a little biased). Also, as of now, I am in the camp of the rumors being true. This would be a good thing for those who want the games to come out sooner rather than later if info like this is already spilling out.

  • Ultron

    The starter bear’s head shape reminds me of Incineroar’s head..

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      I can see that, but it’s not really an uncommon head shape tbf

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      NOPE

      • Xiao Long For?

        I thought the issue you people had was Incineroar’s parts in comparision to eachother not the shapes that make it up lol

  • Xiao Long For?

    I like how GF will probably find a way to make these all humanoids tho

  • ShinyXatu

    I really feel something genuine about these starters, I know they’re probably 99% likely to be faked but they feel way too much like Game Freak in their design philosophy. I also love all three of them, which means it’s likely too good to be true.

  • Kuppo

    The more pokesongs we get the happier as an especies be become.

    Also about those fakes that people are talking about, they’re pretty well drawn and actually look legit and those early legit leaks has happened before but I better be cautious

    The grass one is ugly and is a bear so minus points for that

    The coral is quite interesting as a water starter and the design has a lot of personality, so one of the most interesting.

    The horse is by FAR the best one. Nuff said

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      Umm hello the coral is perfect

      • Kuppo

        Yeah it’s pretty good actually but the fire one is just UGH

        • Xiao Long For?

          Reported to PETA

          • Kuppo

            What are they gonna do? Make Black and Blue 2?

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          Coral is my bab

    • Funny, every word you just said is wrong

      Except yeah the water is the best

      • Kuppo

        Star once again proving she has the wrong opinions 👀👀

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          You mean completely correct ones?

          • Kuppo

            Seraph pls don’t leave me in an unadvantageous position

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            I gotta protect the coral

          • Seraph I appreciate it but are you SURE you wanna commit to that?

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            You support my boi
            I support you

          • you mean goig

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Whatever, coral doesn’t need gendering

          • I misread and thought you meant me lol

          • Kuppo

            87.5% gender ratio

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Is anyone else irritated that this will be the fourth Water starter without a dual types. I feel quite miffed. 7.8/10 too many pure Water types.

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      To be fair the types are way more up in the air than the concepts

    • Xiao Long For?

      I mean it’s far from the worst monotype to have

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I know. I am just combining two jokes into one. (Too mang Fire/Fighting Starters and too much water in ORAS according to IGN).

        • ORAS actually had too much water tho

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            So did Emerald in that case

            Actually in technicality, Emerald had the most water of the Hoenn games ;3

          • When did I say that it didn’t

            ORAS doesn’t have an excuse though because they could make the water routes interesting for a change

    • Uh… what? We don’t know that

  • Schlong Shrub Seraph

    Question: which one of these starters looks like the big OMG ITS POPULAR starter of this gen?
    If these are real that is

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Really depends on the the final evolutions but I am leaning towards the Fire Starter.

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        I dunno if there will be one this gen

        • Xiao Long For?

          Far too soon to judge considering Froakie went from least popular to slight lead over Braixen to the absolute favourite as its evos were shown

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Oh god …

    • Kuppo

      The coral or the horse, but why don’t we make some sort of poll to see which are the most popular here? :0

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        True!
        Team coral here

    • Xiao Long For?

      Frankly, none of them. They actually feel quite balanced. Rowlet was the cute popular last gen whilst Litten was the cool popular, but that lead to people white knighting Popplio because if it doesn’t get screeches every to seconds it’s hated.

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        Agreed

    • The horse as most fire starters become the most popular and it just feels that way

      • Xiao Long For?

        umm are we in the same fanbase

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          Charmander, Cyndaquil, Torchic, debatably Chimchar

          VS

          Snivy, Rowlet

          Debatably Piplup, Froakie

          • Ultron

            Torchic is not more popular than the other two. Cyndaquil maybe but I think it’s pretty close with Totodile. Chimchar? No. All the gen 4 starters are equally liked

          • Xiao Long For?

            Treecko and Mudkip are favoured more than Torchic only judging off of first evos

            Piplup isn’t debatable, it was the merch slut of that Gen

            Pre evos Rowlet and Litten were p. much tied

            I doubt Cyndaquil is that popular because it’s from the least popular starter Gen

            Charmander, Fennekin, and Litten were the only super breakoutish Fire starters

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            I’m referring to the lines as a whole
            Torchic is literally cause OH MY GAWD BLAZIKEN

          • Xiao Long For?

            Why the lines as a whole when we’ve only seen the first stages of these leaks? Froakie went from least fave to fave and opposite for Fennekin

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            True ..

          • Ultron

            Cyndaquil really isn’t marketable tbh

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            I’m referring to Typhlo tbh

          • Ultron

            You’re not wrong.

      • Ultron

        I wouldn’t really say fire become the most popular. Really I think the only cases of gens with notably popular pokemon are
        Gen 1: Charizard
        Gen 5: Serperior
        Gen 6: Greninja
        Gen 7: Decidueye

        That’s 1 fire type

        • Xiao Long For?

          I really wouldn’t say Serperior and Deci are Charizard/Greninja league. Probs the most popualr but far from those levels, and I’d say Prima gives Deci fairly stiff competition

          • Kuppo

            Really? I barely see anyone talking or admiring Prima. Like from my experience tbh

          • Xiao Long For?

            Because Prima fans don’t get in pissing contests like Deci and Inci fans

          • Ultron

            There’s no contest between Decidueye and Incineroar though, that’s the funny part lmao. We all know it’s mr. owl. Even an Incineroar fan can accept that

          • Xiao Long For?

            Not what I meant by pissing contest lol. What I’m saying is that you never hear Prima fans argue as much as Deci vs Inci

          • Ultron

            No, they just observe generally

          • Kuppo

            Eh that’s tru

            Aand reminds me how we still need contests back. GF pls

          • Ultron

            I don’t think they are either, but in regards to the other two starter pokemon for those regions, it’s a clear winner compared to say Sinnoh or Hoenn

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          According to Larry the (Lobster) leaker, Blaze was popular to the point where gf felt the need to make two more fire fightings

        • You wouldn’t say Blaziken was the most popular? Infernape is also some what the most popular of what I see.

          • Ultron

            Eh, not really? Sceptile was heavily featured in the anime. Swampert just kinda does its own thing, but everyone likes it. There doesn’t seem to be a clear winner imo

  • Got bored of no more Kurusu so I’ma back!!!!

    Well I guess it’s time for my opinion on those

    The bear is cute, but it’s head seems to be too flat (its body from the side looks like a peanut)

    The horse is a bit odd for me and its name just has a weird vibe to it

    The coral is cute too, but something feels off about it

    So I’d be picking the best just based on this

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      Something feels off about it

      …WHAT IS OFF ABOUT THE WATERY GOD OF KAWAINESS

      • Doesn’t look exactly like a starter to me I guess

        When GF reveals it officially then I’ll probably appreciate it more

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          You better

    • Kuppo

      Yeah it feels off because of how good it is

      Facts

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        ^^^^

      • It just doesn’t feel like a starter

        I’ll just wait and see when they are announced then I’ll pick better.

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      • Kuppo

        Looks like the grammar police is here 🚨 👀

    • Who the fuckk is voting for the horse

      • Kuppo

        You know who 😉

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        People with shitty taste

        • Kuppo

          No, those people vote the bear

        • Xiao Long For?

          You and Star voted for it?

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Coral does not equal hoise

          • I voted for Coral

          • Xiao Long For?

            Proof you’re lying, there’s no Coral, only Corral

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      This is actually a hard one for me. The horse it my least favorite, but I still do like it. I’m just not sure.

  • Butter Geek

    I actually wouldn’t mind it if GF made an Electric starter, I don’t like Electric starter ideas because it seems like something GF would never do.

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      Than stop adamantly resisting if you wouldn’t mind

    • Kuppo

      Maybe one day they decide to do some sort of Yellow homenaje by making the starter electric.

      Maybe

  • TheGentlemanMonster6893

    I’m not sure why people are saying the coral starter isn’t marketable. If it was bright blue people wouldn’t be saying that I think. IT’s just because it’s a grey blue than the more traditional blue shade. I think it’s cute. It’s different looking, but it’s definitely worthy of being a water starter.

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      It’s actually the water starter we’ve always needed

      • TheGentlemanMonster6893

        But not the one we deserved lol

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          You’re right but like it’s needed

        • Sunniera 2.0

          …!

      • Sunniera 2.0

        But not the one we deserved.

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          You were beaten to the joke

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Thanks for rubbing salt into my wound.

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Salt water is where corals are found my friend

      Is there not already a Tom Nook amiibo?

      • ShinyXatu

        There is, but…it’s Tom Nook. I’m starved for an Animal Crossing game.

        • TheGentlemanMonster6893

          I could see this as tease before them announcing Animal Crossing Switch.

          Oh by the way while I have you,do you have a link to those ResetERA rumors you were talking about last night?

    • Ultron

      Where the fuuuuuuck is it

  • Schlong Shrub Seraph

    If these are real, this gen might actually be starter warless. Let’s just hope this continues

    • Kuppo

      But starters wars are the most fun tho

      And we kinda are having one rn?

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        This is more of a discussion than a war. Gen 7 was a shitshow in that regard.

        • Xiao Long For?

          Throwback to when you stopped inciting starter wars and then someone felt the need to fully ignite it again

          Who could that individual be

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            90% of the site had their moment for it

        • Kuppo

          Uhh that was mostly because of Prima’s feminine appearance and Inci as a whole. So I can’t say for sure if we’re having a war or not

    • Ultron

      People thought that about Gen 6 and 7… and then we got some sh*tty ass evolutions

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        *flashback to when I first saw delphox*

      • Gen 7 had good ones….

        And Inceliroar

        • Ultron

          Well 2/6 (Decidueye and Primarina) isn’t something to write home about

          Overall the gen 7 starters were better than 6 though, yeah

          • Xiao Long For?

            Tbh regardless of how crap the jungle’s opinion is on the Gen 7 starters I’m just sick of anthro starters

          • Ultron

            Same it makes them boring

        • Xiao Long For?

          Inceliroar? The toxic masculinity Pokemon?

          • Kuppo

            It isn’t poison type tho

          • Xiao Long For?

            Inceliroar is, Incineroar isn’t

          • Kuppo

            So it seems that Ince is the better one so far

          • Xiao Long For?

            If you prefer incels I’ve got news for you

          • Kuppo

            I like what you’re implying 😉

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      What where no one complains? Good luck with that friend

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        I mean less than seven at least

        • TheGentlemanMonster6893

          I mean at least if these are real no one will likely sh!t on any of them? I always felt bad that Popplio got trashed so much when it’s actually not that bad.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            The Popplio line was the best one in Gen 7. Waits for war to reignite.

            Wat abut lickingrocc

    • Josh Omega

      What did I miss?

    • Xiao Long For?

      No lol. If anything the starter wars will be worse because there’s no clear favourites. Unlike say, Gen 7 where Deci is the fan favourite (at least in the English speaking part, which is a very large part) but it seems Inci is being pushed the most by the anime, whilst Prima fans chill in the background, so casual fans aren’t really inclined to fight because all three get pandered too.

      • Kuppo

        All of those 3 are final evos and these are initials so we may get some favourites when their evos are shown

        • Xiao Long For?

          I know, but I’m just saying what them being equal throughout would entail. People would feel more need to show theirs is the best because they’re not getting as much validation/invalidation

  • Speaking of starters… Why couldn’t these have been real?
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b5d81f8264d4d0ec15da1735d5b10a53499846587760138897026eae4f9ea717.jpg

    That Water starter legit is my favorite Pokémon idea ever and would be no contest who would be my choice for starter

    • Xiao Long For?

      These would all look really cute! In my box.

      • I wanted these so bad

        The seel looks like something I would want to travel with everywhere all the time

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        You mean your labo?

    • Ultron

      Ew wtf. The fire is cute but the others make me barf

      • The seel is the best Pokémon fire me

        Honestly I was mixed at first on all except Popplio, but these… The seel is best, but I would have no problem taking them all

        • Xiao Long For?

          Yes, we will fire you for this.

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          Nice neopet

    • Because only the fire is good

            SAMUROTT IS NOT A SEA LION

          • Xiao Long For?

            Yeah, it was a mistake

          • Butter Geek

            It’s a Dope flat failed otter samuai

    • Kuppo

      Thank god they weren’t

      Owl is the only good one

      • These all would’ve made Alola so much better

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          If by better you mean ass than yeah

        • Kuppo

          Only for you 😛

    • Also any leak that looks like something meant for consumers to see is fake 99.99% of the time

      • The seel is still my little one.

        • I would make a seal clubbing joke that’s too dark even for me

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            Club penguin

    • Sunniera 2.0

      I see that you already have a nickname planned based off of Hollowknights. Would you say that you are becoming a little too attached to the starter? I mean we don’t have confirmation that it is real or not. This could lead to some degree of heartbreak.

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        Tell that to me

      • Kuppo

        Let us dream

      • No

    • Kuppo

      God I just love how much personality these starters seem to have compared to others

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        Agreeeed

        • Kuppo

          I’m just hopeful that these will become legit cuz last time I admired a leak that much was with the Alola leaks :O

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            True true

    • Butter Geek

      This starter set would be Dope if real (even tho the horse is lacking so far)

    • Butter Geek

      Also now I’m not able to believe that’s it could be anything but ghost

      • Xiao Long For?

        But Zote is a bug

        • Butter Geek

          Then Water/Bug – Water/Bug – Water/Ghost like Deci being a birb

  • Josh Omega

    I am really hoping these starter *leaks* are real. Love all three of them lol wouldn’t be first time something like this leaked on 4chan either. I won’t forget the starters evos leaking out months in advance in 2016.

  • Xiao Long For?

    Urshine (Ursine + Shine)
    Coalt (Coal + Colt)
    Polyft (Polyp + Drift)

    Why is naming stuff so hard lol

    • Butter Geek

      Now I really want Urzeus (Ursus + Zeus) for the Bear if it’s Grass/Electric

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      I FEEL YOU OMG ITS THE WORST
      But like Charcoalt

      I love Polyft

      • Xiao Long For?

        After Chimchar and the Charizard line another Char fire starter is the last thing we need

    • Kuppo

      Urshite (Ursine + Shite)
      Doalt (Coal + Dolt)

      Better names

      But no serious, I imagine the water one sounding a bit more ‘cute’, like Coalt doesn’t fit it’s design or personality too much imo. The rest are pretty decent ngl

    • Butter Geek

      Cubright (Cub + Bright)
      I’m much more proud of myself for this one that I should

      • Xiao Long For?

        ehhhhhh

        • Kuppo

          What a way to bring someone down 👀

        • Butter Geek

          GF likes to incorporate baby animal names in 1st stage starters

          • Xiao Long For?

            the cub part isn’t the issue

    • Monkeyfuzz

      • Butter Geek

        OMG YES

  • Deerlia

    What sources are these supposed leaks coming from deers…?
    My daddy Sawsbuck always said, “You gotta treat the ocean like a blessing, the rain like a gift, and a leak like a plumber.” I think he was implying it’s ok to guess something good is true, but unless you can find the source, it’s a problem…

    • Xiao Long For?

      Dude people are thirsty and this leak will do :p

    • 4chan
      Promptly deleted
      Very real looking
      Incinsistnacies are consistent with inconsistencies found in the consistant set of Alola leaks

      • Xiao Long For?

        4chan leaks get deleted all the time tho, I wouldn’t use it as evidence

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        ^^

    • It was 4chan from what I hear

    • Kuppo

      4chan and they look convincing enough and we are desperate for something to talk about

    • Josh Omega

      As others have said 4chan leaked it. Hard to say whether it’s real or not. Personally I hope it’s real lol

  • Monkeyfuzz

    So I could do with some opinions for my potential Crystal team (I know people are still engrossed in conversation about the possible Gen 8s).
    Which of these teams https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5d9e0fcdec71039b60b3a04273d02875faa4c4bcfd85eb5af53214a75e3e3ebb.jpg

      Typhlosion because there’s a Lanturn in there

    • Ultron

      I say team 2 cause Feraligatr is just cooler. I’d boot Hitmonstop though. It can’t even learn rolling kick so you’d be stuck with other crap. Better to go with Heracross at that point

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I’d get it Hi-Jump Kick as an egg move. I guess if I never heal Heracross Reversal could work.

    • I’d day Typhlosion because of how balanced the team seems

  • Butter Geek

    I’m gonna try and make sketches for What Imagine for the Leaks’ evos, I think you guys could too

  • Sunniera 2.0

    I am currently fluctuating between teams. I like the coral’s designthe most but the unconfirmed mono typing is not appealing to me. The middling design for me would have to be the bear’s and I really like it’s unique typing. The Fire/Steel typing of the horse is probably the most viable one in the competitive scene but I like its design the least. As of now, with what we think we know, I would go with the Bear for my first playthrough and that is probably my favorite one.

    • Butter Geek

      The Bear is creative, cool and cute, I think I like it the best. And also GF making it Grass/Electric would be the only time I wouldn’t be triggered by an electric starter (and I’d probably like it a lot, Electric is my fav type)

      • Xiao Long For?

        go to therapy pls it shouldn’t bug you that much

        • Butter Geek

          F*ck you Mom, I don’t care

          • Kuppo

            No seriously you mention that too much lately

          • Butter Geek

            It’s because it’s Starter leak season, I see a lot of fakemon starters

  • EarthenWarrior

    Still no shiny Celebi…. I’m seriously getting to the point where I’d have better luck using the coin case glitch but I cannot for the life of me get glitches to work

    • Xiao Long For?

      The coin case glitch isn’t in Crystal.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I know I’d have to do it in silver
        But I need Return which i don’t have which is only available on Sunday

    • Kuppo

      So they haven’t fixed the coin case glitch…

      Ok

    • Monkeyfuzz
      • EarthenWarrior

        I don’t even like it but I’d try for star who’ll get me a Shiny Golisopod

        • Ultron

          At least it’s not the worst shiny ever created

    • Remember complaining here typically helps find what your looking for : )

  • Butter Geek

    Do you think these starters could fit into the possible ”Past Present Future theme” ?
    I mean Bear could become a Cave Bear, an extinct species
    Horse could become some sort of cyborg
    But I have No Idea how Corall could fit present. I like the thought of the Present being partially based on internet culture, Idk how Corall boi could fit that (Maybe it’ll just be dead inside like a Big part of us)

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      No
      No
      No
      Stop
      Nao

    • Xiao Long For?

      No cyborg pls

      Bear – past – extinct bear monster
      Horse – present – motorbike theme
      Coral – future – destruction of the great barrier reef reference

      • Sunniera 2.0

        According to a leak, the water starter is based on the present and the horse is based on the future.

        • Butter Geek

          The confirmed leaker said that there is a PPF theme, but she didn’t know which type is which

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Got it. I only remember her saying that 50% of it was correct, and I wasn’t sure which 50% it was.

    • Kuppo

      Pls don’t ruin Pyhorse by making it a bot. Make it past at least

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      I don’t think they need to be that literal in order to fit the theme of past,present, and future. Plus for all we know the base stage starters wouldn’t resemble that theme to start anyway. Maybe ti’s the final evolutions that do. Or maybe it’s a mechanic that’s unique to them that makes them fit the them. Maybe even lore behind them rather than them actually physically looking like they’d represent those 3.

    • ShinyXatu

      No, if that horse becomes Fire/Steel I think it would be more along the lines of its general theme, which would be rubbing its hooves against the ground to light them on fire. It’d likely have big metal spires for legs which allows them to plant in the ground and heat them up internally. None of this makes sense but it sounds cool.

  • Butter Geek

    Also, just for fun, can we agree on names to call these starters? My suggestions:
    Cubulb (made by Monkeyfuzz) is really good
    Coalt just sounds right
    And Idk for Corall

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      Not one person achknowledged my name
      Kay

      • Monkeyfuzz

        What was the name?

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          Charcoalt

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh I thought you meant for Water. I think it’s a good name, though not sure it has much in the way of charcoal about it.

    • I think I got good names

      Cubillate (Cub+Illuminate)
      Blazony (Blaze+Pony)
      Coranch (Coral+Branch)

      • Butter Geek

        Tbh all of these seem forced and lack connections between words

        • I came up with all, but one on the fly

          Blazony doesn’t sound forced to me

          • Butter Geek

            Blaze and Pony don’t have a connection

  • Xiao Long For?

    The bear’s final evo leaked

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a5e1f4235a13f1a0f8a61c815902ade53c4e7046eb1630cb0ebee73c84a36215.gif

    Haha yes even if it’s a ‘leak’ shieetpost season happens

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      What’s that from?

      • Xiao Long For?

        Um it’s totally not RWBY

        I totally do not mention that show at all like an annoying amount :p

        no but legit sorry if rwbyspam annoys anyone lol

        • TheGentlemanMonster6893

          Haven’t even noticed your spam haha I’ve heard RWBY is good, but never watched myself.

          • Xiao Long For?

            *insert shilling here*
            https://youtu.be/pYW2GmHB5xs

            Nah it’s good but you can tell it’s the company’s first shot at something like this

    • Kuppo

      You and your references that only two people at Max will get 😛

  • Josh Omega

    If these leaks end up real what does everyone think their types will end up being? I honestly can’t figure out what would fit. Personally I would want the horse to evolve into a Pegasus 👀 either fire/flying or fire/fairy.

    • Butter Geek

      Grass/Electric
      Idk
      Water/Ghost

      • Josh Omega

        Water/ghost would be very interesting for it.

    • Kuppo

      Water/Rock or Ground
      Fire/Steel or fighting
      Pure grass

      • Josh Omega

        I can see water/rock! At same time they may throw a huge curveball at us like they did with rowlet becoming part ghost. And I would be okay with fire/steel in all honesty.

    • Xiao Long For?

      Well the post they first showed up on said Grass/Electric, Fire/Steel, and Water

      • Josh Omega

        I missed the original post but that would be an interesting trio.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Fire/Fighting for all.

      • Josh Omega

        No just no 😂 let’s just hope the horse stays quadruped if they end up real. Not getting my hopes up for either obviously

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It’ll be bipedal, we all know it.

          • Josh Omega

            Most likely lol

    • Fire Fairy cuz I just want a Pegasus

      Water/Ghost

      Grass/ Rock

      • Josh Omega

        Happy I am not the only one who wants a Pegasus lol

  • Butter Geek

    One of my ideas for Cubulb’s evo. I like the idea of the same face illusion staying, just with diffrent parts of the face (and with added lightings illusions)

    • Butter Geek
      • Monkeyfuzz

        I think it’ll be a bit more complicated than that. Also will likely have some sort of theme like the last few gens.

  • Schlong Shrub Seraph
    • Kuppo

      It’s gonna end up in the Pokken version of Ubers

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        Maybe

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      That’s so broken lol

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        I don’t even know why he does this XD

    • EarthenWarrior

      Op pls bran

    • Ultron

      Strange choice of animal crossing music…but yeah that’s broken

  • Butter Geek

    Now I really want the line to be Cubulb – Ambeare (Ampere + Bear) – Urzeus

  • Butter Geek

    How da f*ck did everyoone just randomly disappear?

    • Josh Omega

      Aliens got them?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I went to have food, don’t know about everyone else.

    • I went to vent because I was in a bad mood

      Now I’m happy and I will say, that coral starter may still not look too starter like to me, but it’s keeps getting cuter

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        >w<

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Seeing as the conversation has died down I guess it is a good time to mention that I was able to catch a Kyogre in Pokémon Go (first legendary I caught in the app). Isn’t it majestic as *beep*? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1395c6090e216fa31099509f0019f9411b2a98ed699dd3415fa52a55973036d9.png

    • Schlong Shrub Seraph

      “Extra small”

      • Sunniera 2.0

        It is not the size that matters Penis Plant.

        • Schlong Shrub Seraph

          That’s not my point
          I mean how the HELL IS that small
          It’s literally not even fitting on the screen

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Legendary Pokémon are larger than life. Of course they won’t fit on a screen.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I have just 5 to get to complete my Apricorn Pokemon collection and 6 for my Beast Ball ones (1 of which I am awaiting a trade for).

  • EarthenWarrior

    Though nobody cares in the slightest a new update for wow added 4 new character slots for the upcoming expansion in the late summer

    ergo i can now save a toon with the desired name for the new expansion

    a Dark Iron Dwarf Slagrim! whom will be a Fire Mage since Dark Iron Dwarves are known for sorcery

  • Butter Geek

    I kinda like my idea fof the Water starter to be based on internet culture, it’s rectangular eyes could look like smartphones, and it could be Water/Ghost cuz we all ded inside

  • Grahhh!!!!!! I’m trying so hard to like the horse, but… it’s body… it’s face… its not very flowing mane!!!!!! It’s all angering me

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I wouldn’t get worked up about it unless does turn out to be real, and even then you don’t have to like it.

      • I in a way am split on this leak now

        I am starting to come around, but I also don’t want to grow too attached till a official reveal

        That said I just want them all to be likable so I have a first ever, a split between who I get

  • Butter Geek

    PLAY THE WAAAAAAA MUSIC (THIS IS THE CONFIMRED LEAKER)
    https://youtu.be/FvrFMa4ZDa0

    • Umm… dude she literally said this is fake before even a min. into the video…

      If she’s the real leaker I don’t think she’d say that

  • EarthenWarrior

    yo i have a warcraft dilemma
    should i buy the deluxe 70$ or the standard edition 50$
    the deluxe comes with 2 mounts and a pet while the other gives me nothing

    • Butter Geek

      50, give the 20 to charity

  • EarthenWarrior

  • EarthenWarrior

    I am really really at my limits with this stupid thing

    The last time I ever had a full odds shiny encounter was……..ORAS where I found a Shiny Makuhita on the first day (sadly it was female)

  • Ultron

    Should I teach my ampharos power gem? It’s just an ingame playthrough, but it’s a wonderlocke so I’m trying to be careful
    -Confuse Ray
    -Thunderwave
    -Charge Beam
    -Volt Switch

    I was thinking paraconfuse would be a decent combo, especially since totem mimikyu is my next foe

    • It’s extremely good

      • Ultron

        My current moveset or power gem? 😛

  • Man, I cannot get enough of the morphing music from Dino Thunder, love it

  • Schlong Shrub Seraph

    Any confirmation on the starters yet?

    • I heard they’re fake

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        They’re too cool to be 🙁

        • I think the leaker themself said they were fake

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            To bring fair the leakers aren’t totally real..

          • Schlong Shrub Seraph

            *to be

    • Butters found a video from the leaker confirming there fakeness : (

      And I was just starting to come around on them

      • Schlong Shrub Seraph

        Hmmm

      • TheNintendoChip

        I think someone said before though that the Gen 7 starter leaks contained grammatical errors (essentially what the video said “confirmed” that they’re fake).

      • The video didn’t prove anything

        • But if Butters said that’s the leaker who leaked it, don’t you think the leaker would be f*cking competent enough to know that what they did is fake or not?


  • So, the new Pokemon opening is gonna be sung by the same people that sung this

  • Schlong Shrub Seraph
  • Schlong Shrub Seraph

    Real talk we’re gonna get a fuckin direct. Doesn’t it seem weird nintendo is tweeting so much?


  • I love this opening so much. I can’t wait for Season 3

  • The difference between here, the Pokémon Instagram fandom and me about these starters

    Here: These are awesome looking and they totally should be real!!! Holy Christmas they are the best starters ever!!!

    Instagram: These are the ugliest and worst starters ever!!!! Nothing could ever come close to being as bad! (This is paraphrasing, but this is basically what I’ve seen)

    Me: *rolls around on floor because I’m bored and want to :3

    • That’s ridiculous too because they actually have some good design aspects? Like especially the bear with the patters is extremely clever

      • They are clever and pretty good (the horse still could use work, but oh well), but remember its the Instagram fandom…

        They literally talk about how Bidoof and Lana are gods and how much everyone there hates each other

  • Garth St.Claire

    Ehh…kinda meh..

    Not even close to the Mimikyu-Rap. The lyrics are lame, the singer sounds bored, and the melody isn’t good either.
    It’s like one of those sing-along things from a show aimed at pre-schoolers.
