We know we said never to believe in leaks, but a new one that surfaced today is painfully accurate for Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Made by an Anonymous user some days ago, the leaker revealed a bunch of information that was legitimately apart of today’s Nintendo Direct alongside a host of other details that did not release.


The leaker goes on to reveal more information, such as having more rivals, the name of the evil organization “Team Yell” as well as more information that we can’t get our heads around.

He also hints as to the Starter Pokemon evolutions, with Scorbunny looking to turn into a Fighting-type by the sounds of it, as well as new Pokémon like Pamper, an Electric Corgi Pokémon, and how Gyms will work.

Obviously, as always, take leaks with a pinch of alt but considering the scary accuracy of the other things that turned out to be confirmed, its reasons to believe some, if not all, could be true. I mean, really, who before today would have thought of a word like “Dynamaxing” off the top of their head!?

There is honestly just too much to go into in one post, so we ask that you read the leak for yourself above and let us know what you think of the information.

Pokémon Sword and Shield release on Nintendo Switch on Nov. 15 worldwide.
