RUMOR: Images of Gym Leaders, Rival and new Pokémon in Scarlet & Violet?

RUMOR WARNING: We share this information for fan discussion only. Please assume all rumors and unconfirmed images to be fake until any official confirmation is given. It’s just fun to talk about the possibilities 🙂

A Twitter user has shared images of an uncertain origin which are purported to be the Gym Leaders (only six?! highly unlikely) of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, your Rival and three new Pokémon species.

There was also a Girafarig regional form or regional evolution shared, although I’m not sure if the source is the same as the images above.

I’ll also add this Pawmi evolution, which had been floating around for a couple days. It may not be tied to pictures from the first tweet.

I’m not here to sway anyone’s opinion one way or another about their authenticity, but do welcome discussion of your thoughts in the comments below! Obviously the quality of these screenshots is very poor and it leaves a lot to the imagination. What do you think?!
