Rumor: 4Chan Leaked Pokémon News From Upcoming Friday Video


The imageboard 4chan is known for several infamous reasons, due to it’s free but chaotic nature (the website is extremely NSFW, so you have been warned). However, one of the reasons it’s known for is for being a place of origin of leaks for several games, both fake and true. This time it seems we’re getting the true variety of leaks, most specifically, Pokémon Sun & Moon leaks.

Earlier today, an anonymous user has been posting images of what appears to be screenshots of the upcoming Pokémon Company video, planned to be revealed this Friday. The screenshots confirms the already known Wishiwashi (Yowashi in Japan, revealed in a previous article), and reveals the Grass/Fairy-type Morelull and the Water-type Pyukumuku, a Pokémon with the odd ability to extrude and shape their own innards, using them as fists.

A new Alolan Pokémon variant is also revealed, the Alolan Raichu, with Electric/Psychic-type and the new ability Surge Surfer. (Update: Surge Surfer ability seems to double Alolan Raichu’s speed when Electric Terrain is present. This should make some electric mouse fans happy.)

How reliable are these leaks? Well, take it with a grain of salt like any unconfirmed leak, but the people at Serebii seems to partially trust them.



It seems the leaks at 4chan weren’t over yet. We now have screenshots of Team Skull in action. Guzma and Plumeria confirm what we knew from the Corocoro leaks, alongside Team Skull grunts look. Alola Marowak (Fire/Ghost) and Alola Meowth (Dark) also appears, hinting Meowth’s “official Team Skull” mascot status.

We can confirm the veracity of these leaks this Friday, when the new Pokémon video reveal comes out. You can also check the leaked screenshots on the gallery below.

    Pyuk looks like baby Digimon and why/how the fuck would a Raichu develop a psychic typing; did it get into a feud with a ground/steel Pokemon?

    That would require evolving a regular Pikachu to alolan Raichu or to have a an alolan Pikachu.

    The former is a game mechanics nightmare and the latter is a marketing nightmare.

    From what I’ve read, you can only get Alolan versions of pokémons; if you want a non-alolan version, you need to import.

    Back in the day I traded my pokemon yellow version of pikachu to my old blue version, evolved him into raichu there, and traded him back to yellow

    it was the only way to do it because trying to use the thunder stone on yellow version would only show pikachu refusing to accept it

    had to show him who is the trainer in the relationship there, he even whined when being traded but after turning into a raichu he never complained again

    Serebi confirmed Pyukumuku I believe.

    really psychic?
    didn’t see that one coming
    at least good old raichu gets some love but I’m not sure if I like his new form, it looks even cudlier than pikachu and Raichu’s tougher look is one of the reasons I always liked him more

  22. Nin
    August 10, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    I really doubt it’s the former, but they could pull an Alohan stone out of their ass.

    This would require someone making a full scale model of Maworak, Team Skull, and Meowth in less than one day.

    I would be impressed if this WAS fake, cause I doubt ArtsyOmni has that level of model skills.

    I’m sure the leaks are real, but if they were fake this wouldn’t be the first time someone puts so much effort on a fake leak.

    Just like what Kori said, making models and stuff like the Raichu Aloha variant would take some time, and if it turns out to be fake, well damn, you would have to at least give more props to the one making the models to deceive people then someone just editing a video.

    That is correct.
    If you bring transfer a Poke that would have an alolan form evo (i.e. Exeggcute), it evos into it’s normal evolution.

    If you breed it, you get the Alolan version as a baby. I think. Last one is not confirmed.

    I do wonder how it works

    in the case of vulpix for instance, it makes sense
    snow vulpix is born that way and remains that way forever
    it is said vulpix evolved in the real world sense, no the pokemon sense, to adapt itself to the cold environment of those mountains

    so it stands to reason that they are born that way because their genes have changed

    but in the exeggutor case it would kind of make sense if they evolved into the alolan form even if they came from another region’s exeggcutes because the lore mentions exeggutor evolving that form due to the climate and hints it is his “true” form

    the exeggcutes are basically the seeds of the exeggutor which grow into a bigger tree on alolan soil, the genes are the same

    The japanese video just posted confirms this then. Also I guess this solves any problems. There’s no alolan Pikachu as it isn’t needed, you will have to pokebank regular Raichu in if you want it.

    It only took me so few hours to get BTFO.
