Is Psyduck a platypus?

  1. No, you fool. He's a duck!

    EDIT: Show’s over

    Maybe take this one with a pound of salt. It seems to be very similar to the Gen 7 final evo leaks but this could definitely be just someone trying to emulate that leak. Really good designs though. I haven't seen anyone debunk it or claim it as theirs yet.


    close if old.

    edit2: if people are wondering about the Japanese legitness

    The designs look nice, they look better than the last three gens first stages.

    That bunny's got fine potential to end up as a Fire/Fighting type.

    99.9% chance of it being fake

    it's not the first fake I've seen since the Alola starters leak that tried to emulate the aesthetic.

    Ooooh, it says "Confidential"! Must be real!

    Also, aren't these the same ones that "leaked" some weeks ago. Someone had them framed on a wall or something?

    I get what you mean but i feel like we say this every gen.

    But i did hate Chespin when i saw it and i still do.

    Also having a grass monkey that isnt garbage like pansage would be nice.

    Look ugly as hell.

    Which means they are probably real.

    This comes from 4chan. There are fake starters every single week there. This is no different and has nothing special, why did you make a thread for this?

    Posting rumors without a source? Nice OP.
  28. Farrac

    They're probably fake, of course. But I will say, for the record, that there is absolutely nothing that screams fake in those designs. I would love to meet the artist.

    Also, OP, you should post the source, even if it is from... *sigh* 4chan.

    Chauzu Member

    You guys have no taste, if real gen 8 would have the best designed stage 1 starters ever imo. Maybe not the grass started but you see the potential for future evo’s at least.

    Not op but source is 4chan afaik so yeah.

    I refuse to believe. Switch Pokémon games have to be gen 1 UE4 remakes. They have to be.

    Platypus and Water/Poison? Yes please.
  34. Brock Reiher

    Brock Reiher Member

    They didn't even include a fake anime character that could later (in theory) be used to confirm

  36. DecoReturns

    These are fake because we are getting Gen 1 remakes. Duh.

    The top one is booty
    The fire rabbit and the platypus are cool.
    I'll go with the platypus

    Also, I'll go ahead and say these are fake

    Is the water starter a mixture of Psyduck and Bidoof?
  43. Bronx-Man

    Bronx-Man Member

    I like the grass type. That alone makes these starters better than Sun/Moon's.

    Bunny and platypus are great, monkey is dogshite. Probably fake tho.

    The Grass and Water Pokemon both look super adorable.

    The Fire Pokemon is cool though.

    In for the cool fire rabbit. Would be dope.

    Triscuitable Member

    Didn't think it was possible, but I really dislike all of these. With Gen 7, I liked all three starters a lot (especially Popplio), and I didn't exactly dislike Gen 5 or 6, either. But if this is real, I'm not a fan.

    I like them, but 100% fake.
