Fans may have discovered the next Paradox Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet, and more evidence suggests that they may be correct.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet leaks have revealed which new Paradox Pokémon may be released to Nintendo Switch games in the near future. In Generation 9, a new type of Pokémon called a dox Pokémon was introduced with the Paldea area. They differ depending on the game version; in Scarlet, they are ancient versions of a few well-known species, whilst in Violet, they are futuristic counterparts of some other pocket monsters.
Suicune & Virizion May Be The Next Paradox Pokemon Scarlet and Violet leaks
According to a new tweet from Centro LEAKS, the much-discussed Paradox Forms of Suicune and Virizion may be accurate (via TheGamer). Fans utilized the RK9 Pokémon team-building tool and purportedly discovered two new moves when The Pokémon Company (TPC) mistakenly exposed graphics for Pokémon that are presently not in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet during a webcast about the San Diego Regional Championships. The presence of Hydro Steam and Psyblade in the tool suggests that the next Paradox Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet may be the aforementioned Legendaries.
Paradox Suicune & Virizion Will Likely Have Alternative Types
Centro LEAKS speculates about the Types of the following Paradox Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Leaks, based on the discovery of Hydro Steam and Psyblade. Because Hydro Steam, like Volcanion’s Steam Eruption, is likely a Water-type move based on heated water, it might hint that Paradox Suicune is a Water/Fire-type. If not that, it may be a Fire-type move that is inspired by Water-type moves. The supposed leaked design of Paradox Suicune hints as much, since it incorporates a few Entei-like characteristics into the beast.
Of course, like with most leaks, the material should be used with caution. Nonetheless, if the next Paradox Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Leaks are Suicune and Virizion, a version barrier is likely. Because Suicune represents the ancient and Virizion represents the futuristic, it is likely that they will be Pokémon Scarlet and Violet version exclusives, with Suicune appearing only in Scarlet and Virizion appearing only in Violet – even the first letter of their names matches the respective versions to which they may be attributed.
