A new dung beetle Pokémon leak for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will blow your mind

That is a ball of mud, beyond a shadow of a doubt.

As Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are primed to release on November 18, leakers have been sending out data as quickly as their screenshots will upload after an alleged rom of Pokémon Scarlet was somehow loosed in the wild. The leaks, containing a wide array of data, varying from new mechanics to wild new Pokémon to capture, have enraptured an excited fanbase into a frenzy. The leaked Pokémon have brought some of the most creative and bizarre Pokémon yet, including a dung beetle that rolls up a ball of…mud.

The Pokédex of the leaked image clearly states that the dung beetle named Rellor psychically rolls a ball of mud with sand and dirt, but the model of the creature has unique artifacts located within the ball of mud. This leaked ‘Rolling Pokémon’ is a small bug-type that treasures its ball of mess and doesn’t take kindly to others attempting to take it. Its Pokédex number is 254, as shown in the leaked image.

This psychic-type dung beetle turns its ball of mud into a purple orb of luminescence, as another leaker found a reference to the dung beetle in its final form. Far larger, with fearsome pincers and clear psychic energy, the final evolution of Rellor appears to be an absolute monster. It’s unclear, however, at the moment as to how many stages are in Rellor’s evolution, or what levels or materials are necessary for the evolution to come to fruition.

It’s always important to note that leaks should be taken with a grain of salt — it’s far too simple in the modern era to spoof images and create game screen mockups, more so if the user is versed in tools such as Photoshop. Unless Nintendo or The Pokémon Company come out and authenticate these leaks, it’s best to keep them at arm’s length until the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
