The surprising Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaks feature the introduction of a pair of new seabirds.
The Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaks continue to surface in advance of the game’s release by the end of this month. It has been less of a series of leaks and more of a tsunami of information regarding the newest installment of the critter-catching video game franchise, and the leakers keep drilling holes in the dam to make the information flow more quickly.
Stop reading here if you want to avoid being spoiled for the game you’re about to play; there are going to be a lot of reveals in the remaining text. The new Pokémon that have been discovered today are both of the Electric and Flying types, and one of them has some substantial Pokédex information attached to it.
The information that was leaked by Demi Alt suggests that the electric flying type Pokémon Wattrel will be one of the new Pokémon that will be included in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The Pokédex refers to Wattrel as a “Storm Petrel Pokémon,” which is a species of seabird that is most commonly seen in the waters near Antarctica. Wattrel possesses the ability to ostensibly create energy by using its bones to capture the wind with its wings. It pursues its prey by diving into the water and electrocuting it, taking its cues from the numerous diving birds that are found across the world.
Demi Alt also shared a screenshot of Wattrel’s evolved form in-game, revealing not only the look of this new Pokémon but also the level of graphical detail that gamers may anticipate once the game is released. Although Demi Alt does not provide the name of the evolved Pokémon, other sources have suggested that the name is Kilowattrel, which would definitely be consistent with the concept if it were used.
It has been a bit of a whirlwind recently with all the information that has been released, so if it is all proving to be a bit much for you to wrap your brain around, you can always check out our list of all of the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaks that have occurred up to this point.
There is still a significant amount of time left before the game is released, so if you are having trouble deciding whether or not to retain your starting Pokémon in your party for the entirety of the game, you might find it helpful to take a peek at its final evolution. In any other case, if you hope to enter the new games without any previous knowledge, I wish you the best of luck.
