Take a bite of this weird sushi-inspired Pokémon from Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaks

Who doesn't get hungry when looking at Pokémon?

As Pokémon Scarlet and Violet come closer to an official release, the number of Poké-fans with early copies of the game have started leaking images and data on the upcoming title seems to be increasing by the hour. The internet is ablaze with leaks of new mechanics, vistas, gyms, and of course, new Pokémon, including one that looks like nigiri, a type of sushi.

If you’ve ever wanted to eat your Pokémon, now you’ll have an excuse with the new Pokémon Tatsugiri, which was inspired by nigiri. This nigiri, however, seems to fight back instead of willingly being eaten, thanks to it being alive. Outlined in the leak as a Mimicry Pokémon, seemingly taken from the front of a Pokédex article, the leak states that the Tatsugiri comes in multiple colors and forms — if that means California roll Pokémon, we may have a new favorite.

This newly leaked Pokémon may be the most outlandish yet, stepping just a bit further into the realm of absurdity than Dachsbun and Flamigo could hope to offer alone. However, how outlandish it can get will have to be discovered when the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet release. It’s also possible that this is a mere ruse to get a rise from various Poké-fans.

When it comes to leaks and rumors that cannot be verified, fans need to stay cautious and aware of where the information is coming from. It’s best to take most leaks with a grain of salt and presume authenticity only when the developer or publisher vouches for it. The Pokémon Company or Nintendo have vouched for the authenticity of the leaks thus far.
