A new spherical spider Pokémon has leaked for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Hopefully, you're not easily bothered by spiders.

As Pokémon Scarlet and Violet near release on November 18, data has appeared on the internet leaking new Pokémon, evolutions, and vistas that have been kept quiet until now. A recent leak shows a new spherical Pokémon that is a natural enemy of Scythers.

The Tarountula is a bug-type Pokémon that weaves threads around its body, which deflects the attacks of Scyther with its elasticity. The image shared by the leakers also gives proportions of a singular sample of this specie, weighing a whopping 8.8 pounds and standing a singular foot tall. Based on its Pokédex number, 12, this appears to be a Pokémon that will be encountered earlier on in the titles.

Beyond a brief image and a Pokédex image, there is little known about this spider-like Pokémon besides its type and that it considers its natural enemy to be Scyther. Many bug-type Pokémon have evolutions, however, and we imagine the Tarountula would offer much of the same. However, this could be an underutilized Pokémon when the title officially releases, given the natural disposition of many people toward arachnophobic tendencies.

It’s worth noting that this information has not yet been confirmed by the Pokémon Company or Nintendo, and people have been known to go to great lengths to troll communities at large. Until this creature can be officially confirmed via game release or the companies involved, it’s best to take all information as plausible rather than confirmed.

However, the current deluge of information regarding Pokémon Scarlet and Violet implies that the leaks are accurate. If you’re hoping for a blind play when the title releases officially on November 18, it’s likely best to avoid internet communities for the time being.
