The games were quickly ported over to the computer via ROMs and distributed around the interwebs and this list of the Pokemon was quickly compiled for those who are waiting around for the actual game to come out in the United States early next spring.
Leading up to the release of the ROMs, there was much speculation on a bunch of leaks whether the Pokemon were real or not and unfortunately for some, the starters ended up looking as they do now, and unfortunately for everyone, we have another Fire/Fighting type as the third evolution. That brings the number of 3 starters whose evolution ends up as fire/fighting in case you were keeping track.
None of these leaked Pokemon have had official American names yet but since we love you here at Gameshoe our protip of the day is as follows:
- Common name for the water starter is: Wotter (Water and otter, get it?)
- Common name for the fire starter is: Pignite (Ignite has to do with fire? So clever.)
- Common name for the grass starter: Smugleaf (Look at him, he's just so damn smug!)
