Pokemon Scarlet and Violet may very well get a new trailer soon, either in May or June, but thus far, the only trustworthy information came from the official announcement on Pokemon Day in February. Ever since the reveal of Generation 9 games, many alleged leakers have been posting information online that’s supposedly about features or evolutionary lines in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Still, it’s quite hard to navigate these alleged leaks and figure out what has the potential of being true and what is blatantly fake, but there are some insiders with information that did become believable over time.
Among the most prominent “leakers” in the Pokemon universe at the moment is one that’s called Riddler Khu, who has successfully predicted a lot of things regarding Pokemon games and even the anime more recently. It’s unclear what Khu’s ties to The Pokemon Company are or in what capacity they get access to reserved information, but Pokemon Legends: Arceus is a good example of the fact that Khu did get everything right beforehand. As for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, Khu only shared a few enigmatic riddles that didn’t find a solution up until now.
Apparently, a Pokemon fan deciphered the code of one of Khu’s latest riddles that were meant to be for a couple of new regional forms in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The riddle involved numbers and letters, and the Pokemon player who ended up cracking the code noticed that they were the hexadecimal values corresponding to HTML codes that match very specific colors. These colors are the same blue that The Pokemon Company uses for Water-type critters and the same brown hues that make the symbol for Ground-type monsters.
Another important detail comes from the original riddle’s four numbers followed by a question mark, with them being 2, 3, 4, and 5. Pokemon games from Generation 2 to Generation 5 were the only ones to feature Water/Ground-type Pokemon in the regional Pokedex, and the list comprises Quagsire, Gastrodon, Whiscash, Seismitoad, and Swampert. Thus, the fan who deciphered the riddle explains that it means that one of these five critters will indeed get a regional form in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, with a great candidate being Swampert due to its popularity.
Oddly enough, a few days prior to this leak being shared by Khu, pictures of a new regional form for Diglett in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet surfaced online. The alleged leak shows a massive Diglett with its head in the clouds, almost as if it was a Gigantamax version of the base Pokemon, and it’s rumored to be a Water/Ground-type critter. This information is still not guaranteed to be true, and thus fans should take it with a pinch of salt until new trailers are shared to prove anything.
