Starter Evolutions + Base Stats RUMOR

First off, I’ll be up front about this: I don’t believe it.  But Snowy actually found it on 2ch and someone else asked for it to be translated ‘n stuff, so I’ll do it.  Plus the type combinations are worth sparking some discussion!

Tsutaya (grass) -> Noukazura (grass/ground) [‘nouka’ farmer + ‘kazura’ part of a flower name in the Mucuna genus] -> Kazuratori (grass/ground) [‘kazura’ again + ‘tori’]  Last Evo’s base stats:

  • HP: 90
  • Atk: 89
  • Def: 105
  • SpAtk: 75
  • SpDef: 90
  • Speed: 90
  • Total: 539

Pokabu (fire) -> Tateishishi (fire/dark) [‘tate’ shield + ino’shishi’ boar] -> Mimonoshishi (fire/dark) [no clue + ino’shishi’ boar] Last Evo’s base stats:

  • HP: 120
  • Atk: 110
  • Def: 80
  • SpAtk: 80
  • SpDef: 100
  • Speed: 40
  • Total: 530

Mijumaru (water) -> Mijutto (water) [no clue] -> Kawamizun (water/fighting) [‘kawa’ river + ‘mizu’ water] Last Evo’s base stats:

  • HP: 85
  • Atk: 100
  • Def: 70
  • SpAtk: 90
  • SpDef: 130
  • Speed: 55
  • Total: 530

I’m going to assume that Tsutaja’s evo was supposed to have 80 atk, not 89.  Otherwise this rumor is complete bs just based on that.  Basically end of the rumor said “That’s it bye bye!” lol.

<3 pokejungle

ps- Secondary types like that WOULD be kick ass, don’t get me wrong.

UPD: Thanks everyone who corrected me about ‘inoshishi’… that slipped my mind xD

  1. Hmmmm…..

    Well we saw in one of the videos that a Lv.50 Mijumaru survived an electric attack from a Lv.50 Shimama. So I would expect it to have high HP or defenses.

  2. @ Hejiru what you claim is right :/ but someone smart enough couldve said: hey look Mijumaru survived that electricity attack, ill just make up him having high defenses and hp.. Therefore, the footage in the second video is nothing new. We saw it before c:

    my guess its still fake, only because im not liking the low attack and sp. attack on my precious smugleaf XD

    thanks for the info anyways pokebeach!

  3. If this is true, Pokabu for life for me, I wish my boy Tsutaja would be part Psychic instead of Ground. 🙁

    This is all if these rumors are true of course.

  4. I asked for them to be translated! Having you make a whole post out of this makes me feel special 🙂 @Daigo I wish Smugleaf is psychic too, and remember, this could be fake, so we still have a chance! 😀

    Also thanks for finding these Snowy!

  5. I think these have been proven false forever ago, before now, because hasn’t someone figured out what the names of Tsutarja and Mijumaru’s evo’s names on that there anime beta artwork sheet? Wasn’t Tsutarja’s something like Tsutsawaiya or something? Ivy wire?

  6. @Giuseppe Yes that is true and I don’t believe this is true either (Just because I don’t want it to). But the Beta sheet, was a BETA sheet and can change. (I don’t mean to be mean but I’m just saying)

  7. I actually looked myself, and some of the “letters” don’t match up, so that one rumor probably isn’t true. Unless they changed their names.

  8. @Guiseppe

    Tsutsawaiya was part of the fake NOA rumors.


    It may be a beta sheet, but it appears that Koromori and Kibago didn’t change that much from the beta sheet (or at least Koromori’s name, since that one was the most legible, apparently).

  9. Hey, @Krake, That name he pulled that was ‘ivy wire’ was from the beta sheet. But also on the beta sheet, Tsutaja’s name was spelled wrong, so the name is not confirmed.

    ANOTHER grass ground? All it does it give it a 1X to water, while still letting Fire attack it. There is no advantage to it… I guess some ground attacks, for the fire type, but this doesn’t make ANY sense… I hate that… if it is so, then I will probably choose Mijumaru… a water fighting would be cool… and so would Pokabu.. Fire dark…

  10. @snowy well you still found their post and brought it here so I still give you some credit 🙂

  11. Wait wait

    “Meat sheild”

    are you kidding me?
    That name alone has to make it a joke.

    1. @Snowy: Because Pokemon names are written in katakana and not kanji there are a loooooooot of possibilities when it comes to translating. I just do my best :p “meat shield” made the most sense lmfao.

  12. My Tsutaja will be Grass/Ground?
    No!! Not another one!
    Grass/Electric was a cooler combo!!
    But Water/Fighting makes sense considering Mijumaru’s evo design.
    Another Fire/Dark hmm, interesting..

  13. Boo. Honestly, I really think this is fake. Dunno why, I just do. But if it is real, glad that Mijumaru evolved into Water/Fighting. If we got another Fire/Fighting I would go nuts.

  14. Yeah, Im really sure that rumor about the starters evolutions and base stats is false, because on the beta anime sheet, i think Mijumaru and Tsutarja’s evolutions were named: Rakonosuke, and Tsutaneeku, and the sheet is official. We dont want another Grass/Ground starter evolution because we already had a Grass/Ground starter: Torterra I wish that Tsutarja’s final evolution will either be a Grass/Dragon, Grass/Flying, or Grass/Electric.

  15. not putting much stock into this but i’ll be pissed if we get another Fire/Fighting or Grass/Ground or frankly any of the other type combos we’ve had for previous starters.

  16. If your translations are correct, I am extremely doubtful of this rumor’s credibility, those names just don’t seem creative enough. Then again, they are japanese names.

  17. *wnats tsutajaa even more* *_*

    allthough pokabu being dark and fire seems even more bad ass now….
    but mijumaru being water/fighting…
    know i can’t decide again! DX

  18. ‘shishi’ isn’t referring to meat, IMO. It also means ‘lion.’ However, that means a cross animal change, from prey to predator, so I really doubt these.

  19. Well these guys sure seem….interesting.

    But, I’m not going to put all my faith in these rumors. I’ll believe whatever is leaked from CoroCoro, since I don’t have any manga scans to wait for anymore. 🙁

    Also, my R4 arrived today, so that means I’ll be playing the White ROM as soon as it leaks. 🙂 Just in case the starter’s evolutions aren’t revealed.

  20. Funny, I thought Tsutaja second evolution was named Tsutakeku (ツタケーク) and Mijumaru second evolution was named Rakononua (ラコノヌア). This seems as about absurd as those supposed Pokedex leaks. Those type listing are great in theory but no two types, in order, were the same or similar. Are they suggesting they are evolutions to previous Pokemon or that there are a couple dozen new Pokemon that do not evolve? I remain skeptical until proven otherwise.

  21. Fake.
    According to the beta sheets, Mijumaru’s Japanese name is close to ラコノスゾ (Rakonosuzo) or something along those lines. (Note it might be off since it’s hard to make out)
    And that is nothing close to Mijutto (ミジュット)

  22. @pokejungle oh really? why didn’t i hear about that? @@”
    did you post somethin’ about it here?

    1. I don’t know if I did. Tsutaja’s name was def wrong, possibly Mijumaru’s too.

  23. Fire/Dark and Water/Fighting seem reasonable…

    not sure where Grass/Ground came from though….it looks more like something that will take off into the air rather than stay as a ground type…

  24. @sponge that;s what i was thinkiing, when i look at tsutajaa i see maybe a psychic type possibly even an electric/grass but ground…i don’t see where it’s comin’ from. ><

  25. You guys act like you’re able to tell what secondary typing a Pokemon will receive by merely looking at their first form. Are you sure you knew Piplup was gonna be part Steel by Stage 2? No. You’re not supposed to be able to 100% tell my looking at the basic form. =/

  26. The “shishi” part of Pokabu’s evos probably comes from the word “inoshishi” (boar).

  27. @pokebeach

    The “Shishi’ is no doubt from “Inoshishi” which means “Boar”

    I don’t believe these rumours either. For starters I don’t see why a “Sea otter” would take “river” in its name as an evolution. Still though, kudos for taking your time to sift through all of the crap that the 2channellers post in order to look for truth. It totally pays off on the occasions it turns out true!

    I’m a translator myself but I seriously don’t have the time for such tedious stuff, you have a lot of grit and willpower! 😀

  28. It’s quite unbelievable for Tsutaja’s stats, it takes so much damage from Hihidaruma’s and Pokabu’s Fire-type move at the same level, suggesting that it has low Defense.

  29. ya i was thinking that to….guess there’s no way to tell what’s what until we gte the game. :/

  30. also, david pointed out that in the post with the two DVD videos before this one, if you look at the hp of the three starters tsutajaa’s is the highest of the three even. and they’re all level 50…so this gives even more reason to believe these are fake. :/

  31. I don’t beleive this bs
    Tsutaja how can it evolve into part ground!? I don’t wanna have another Grass/Ground starter!
    Pokabu would be EXTREMLY weak to Mjumaru is this is true
    Fire dies to water and
    Dark dies to fighting
    Mjumaru’s typing I believe though,

  32. Hey guys, remeber the anime concept art? If you don’t, look it up. See Tsutaaja’s evolution? There is almost no way that it is Ground type. It may be Psychic or Dark, Maybe Dragon (that would be awesome!) but defiantly not Ground. That’s just more proof that these are probably false.

  33. @Prof. W. I’m hoping dragon, but that’s not going to happen, psychic sounds cool but I don’t see it, but dark I see that and I think that would be epic!

  34. i hope:
    Tsutaja evo is Grass/Psychic
    Mijumaru evo is Water/Fighting
    Pokabu evo is Fire/Flying

  35. I hope that final evolutions of the starters will be:
    Tsutarja-Grass/Dragon, Grass/Flying, or Grass/Electric.
    Pokabu: Fire/Rock, Fire/Ground, or Fire/Steel.
    Mijumaru: Water/Fighting.

  36. here’s my predictions of the starter’s final evo’s base stats:
    Tsutarja-HP:75 Attack:90 Defence:60 Sp.ATK:115 Sp.DEF:75 Speed:110 Base Stat Total:525
    Pokabu-HP:104 Attack:109 Defence:105 Sp.ATK:90 Sp.DEF:86 Speed:40 Base Stat Total:534
    Mijumaru-HP:80 Attack:112 Defence:90 Sp.ATK:80 Sp.DEF:90 Speed:78 Base Stat Total:530

  37. PJ, it’s Friday! How did that interview end up going?!

    and @ David: Yeah I still have my hopes high for what I want out of good old Smugleaf, because I think he’s the one I want to use.

  38. LONG LIVE SMUGLEAF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Smugleaf will never fall! Pignition will cook himself alive, and DerpDerp will sit there and watch with a vacant expression!

  40. This rumor can’t be true, since Tsutarja’s evolution was named “Tsuta-ne-ku” (Tsutarnake or Tsutaaneiku) in the anime beta character reference sheet that leaked a few weeks ago.

  41. I feel that except for Generation III, Pokemon is unkind towards Grass-type starters — They only give them low BSTs of 525…………..

    But, go Smugleaf! Prove yourself to the others!

  42. I have a feeling Smugleaf will be the God Gundam of Pokemon, where he has such ludicrous attacks and he can get out of any situation no matter what.

  43. My predictions:

    Tsutaja: HP: 75 – AT: 103 – D: 74 – S.A: 105 – S.D: 93 – Sp: 80
    Pokabu: HP: 90 – AT: 85 – D: 103 – S.A: 107 – S.D: 82 – Sp: 65
    Mijuma: HP: 80 – AT: 109 – D: 101 – S.A: 80 – S.D: 82 – Sp: 78

  44. [email protected] Im with you man, though the kana part is supposed to be “ツタネーク” because a pokemon’s name in japanese is supposed to be up to 5 characters.

  45. Just because they names are different on the beta sheet doesn’t mean these can’t be real. The beta sheet is a beta sheet not fully Developed and still a work in progress so the names could still have been changed in the final product.

  46. My predictions:

    Tsutaja: HP: 6 freakin’ billion!– AT: 1 trillion! – D: 900thousand – S.A: 90000 trillion – S.D: 78billion–
    Sp: 400000000000000000000000

    Pokabu: HP: -90 – AT: -85 – D: -103 – S.A: -107 – S.D: -82 – Sp: -65

    Mijumaru: HP: 50 – AT: 50 – D: 50 – S.A: 50 – S.D: 50 – Sp: 50

    These are so true! XD

  47. The picture with pokabu in my post, is supposed to signify him after my smugleaf is through with that piece of s***! (Sorry I just watched “A Very Potter Sequel” on youtube and it had lots of swearing…

  48. hello,i just want to say in full blown letters “TSUTAJA WILL F**K UP THE OTHER STARTERS SO EASY WITH GRASS MIXER”!!!

  49. Has anyone licked a cold metal pole and their tounge(their licker)wouldn`t come off for a few hours or mins?

  50. NEW POKEMON REMINDER!!!!!! There is to be a new legendary pokemon(classified as the”Phantom pokemon”)on pokemon sunday(tommorow for us),so look forward to it(P.S. i hope its the full artwork)

    1. Tsutaja fan: quick and friendly reminder that spammers do get ip blocked 🙂 So lets keep up some good discussion. Do you like your DSiXL? I saw one at McDonalds and it looked huuuuuge.

  51. I am now the top commenter on this news story(P.S. im watching the dudesons in america) 🙂

  52. I LOVE TSUTAJA’S:mine is going to be named Ivy if its female(and i will see to it that it will be female)

  53. NO NO NO NO
    I don’t like the Grass/Ground combination D:<
    I don't even liked Torterra
    Tsutaaja's evolutions must be Grass/Psychic or Flying, but oh well, this ain't confirmed yet.
    But I just hope the it won't be Grass/Ground or else…

  54. I’m a Mijumaru fan, and I really like its type combination.
    Bully: Oh you DerpDerp! You’re so ugly!
    *Mijumaru evolves and kicks the Bully’s ass*

  55. @tsutaja fan, 3 things, 1st You have like 6 comments on this post, and I was saying on the home page on the column to the right it says who has the most comments, (at this point ozymandis) Good job ozymandis!

    2nd you are getting real freaking annoying! }-(

    3rd TSUTAJA IS GOING TO PWN THAT STUPID PIECE OF HAM IN THE FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good job Smugleaf! (b^-^)b

  56. dudee i’m such a smugleaf fan! xDDDD
    i want one NAOWW!!!

    and thank you david!
    congrats on being in first right now! 😀

  57. @david have you noticed we keep going back and forth on who has the top comments? xDDDD

  58. oh and the mijumaru picture is also cool~
    not as cool as tsutaaja thoughhhh 😀

  59. oh sorry one last thing, do you speak japanese?
    i.e. are you gonna get it when it comes out in japan?

  60. @david aww darn ’cause you’re pretty cool so i was gonna ask to exchange friend codes for the game when we get it. :/
    when you get the english versoin,m you wanna do that? 😀

  61. Pokabu’s definitely my favorite, with Mijumaru being my second favorite. GO. AND. PWWWWN MY HAM FRIEND! That is all. But I don’t believe this either.

  62. The more rumors that come out the less I believe them (but please, keep posting them!). 🙂 I don’t believe this one at all. Or maybe I am in denial. I am going to get Tsutaja either way.

  63. Im pretty sure that rumor isnt true, because the starter pokemon’s moves: Grass Mixer makes it more likely that Tsutarja’s final evo will be Grass/Flying. Nitro Charge will make it more likely that Pokabu’s final evo will be Fire/Steel.
