The Pokémon Company revealed plenty of interesting new information today, with new Pokémon, Z-moves, Island Trials, and more being brought to light for Pokémon Sun and Moon. It seems like Game Freak is going to be trying several new things with Generation 7, and it’ll be interesting to see how some of the changes play out with the fanbase. Of course, the starters for this generation were some of the first things that we got a look at, and today’s announcement has seemingly confirmed what they’ll look like after evolving a couple times.
Some concept art for the anime was floating around the internet back in May and depicted what appeared to be the final evolutions of the starters, but it was mostly ignored when none of it could be confirmed. However, today’s announcement revealed a Trial Captain named Mallow, who also happens to appear in the art alongside the Pokémon. While their names are still unavailable, it’s a pretty safe bet that this is what they’ll look like:
As with all rumours, this is to be taken with a grain of salt, but it’s interesting to think what types they’ll be.
What of you think? Will this impact which starter you choose? Do you think this art is legitimate? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
