Leaked details of "edible" regional fake in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: An Edible Adventure!

Oh boy, let’s talk about the game that turned the Pokemon world upside down! That’s right, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet brought some real flavor to the series, quite literally! These games introduced an open world that lets you explore Paldea at your own leisure and pace. It’s like taking a vacation in the Pokemon universe!

But hang on a sec, let’s talk about one of the most exciting things in Gen 9: the regional fakes! Don’t let the fancy term fool you, it’s just a name we made up during the infamous leak season. Who would’ve thought “Toedscool” and “Wiglett” would get caught up in this naming madness? Well, they did, and now we’re back at it again with the Gen 9 DLC leak season, featuring an alleged “edible” Poison Pokemon turning into a Grass-type. Yum!

So, where did this tasty leak come from? The one and only Riddler Khu! This Pokemon predictor extraordinaire accurately predicted everything from Pokemon Legends: Arceus to the whole Gen 9 roster. Talk about being a reliable source! This time, Khu shared a picture of four Poison-type Pokemon, asking if the edible treat was among them. Yes, you heard it right, we’re talking about turning a poisonous Pokemon into something you can sink your teeth into. Can you imagine?

Now let’s dig into the juicy details, shall we? The contenders are Weezing, Swalot, Drifblim, and Spiritomb. Drifblim and Spiritomb are quite the oddballs here because they’re Ghost-type Pokemon. So, the riddle might be hinting at losing their ghostly powers instead of their poison traits. But in that case, we’d have to wave goodbye to Swalot and Weezing because they are pure Poison-types. Oh, the suspense!

Here’s where things get juicy. If we follow the pattern set by the previous regional fakes in Gen 9, the types would be inverted. Wiglett swapped its Ground type for Water, while Toedscool went from Poison and Water to Grass and Earth. So, if any of the critters specified by Khu gain the Grass type, it can only be Swalot or Weezing. Why, you ask? Because Grass is already the inverted type for Poison! It’s like a game of type Tetris!

Hold on, there’s more evidence on the table. Swalot, Drifblim, and Spiritomb are all in the Regional Pokedex for Gen 9. Now, both DLCs take place away from Paldea, so it wouldn’t make much sense for them to get a whole new form instead of Weezing. And let’s not forget, Weezing got some love in Gen 8 with the Galarian form. But when it comes to additional forms, the OG Gen 1 Pokemon often take the cake (and the berries). Just look at Meowth, who got not one, but two regional forms in Gen 7 and 8! Talk about favoritism!

Now, let’s talk fruit. We’re in Kitakami, the land of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, and it’s all about Japan here. Think melons, my friend! Picture a Koffing and Weezing form inspired by juicy, mouthwatering melons. Nashi pears and Momo peaches could also be a delightful choice. But the frontrunner for the new form seems to be the Pokeberry. It’s a poisonous fruit that grows on branches, a dead ringer for Weezing’s natural form. It’s like the perfect blend of deliciousness and danger!

Of course, there’s always the chance that none of these critters will make it into the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC. But if I had to place a bet, Weezing is the odd one out, and it seems like a perfect fit for the edible transformation. Fingers crossed!

So my fellow Pokemon lovers, get ready to sink your teeth into the world of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet! These games are now available on the Nintendo Switch, so grab your Pokeballs and let’s dive into this edible adventure! And don’t forget to keep an eye out for more Pokemon presents in the future. Gotta catch ’em all!
