Last Sunday I showed you all a teaser to the new Pokémon Starters as silhouettes, however earlier this week just as predicted by many internet users across the world the May 15th Issue was leaked around the internet on the 12th where we were able to check out the Pokémon starters in full colour and also their names… As you can see from the screenshot above I was correct as the one on the left is the grass type, the middle fire and the right as the water starter.
The grass type kind of reminds me of a Cyndaquil crossed with a Treecko…. The Japanese names of the Pokémon are from left to right; Tsutaja, Pokabu, and Mijumaru however the English names may be different.
Along with the starters revealed in full colour the leaked issue also showed us the playable characters, they look more in their teens and look older than the previous generations, this could be a way to bring in the old Pokémon gamers from the late 90s. It’s safe to say that these games will be aimed to not just younger gamers but also to older games to either keep the current fans playing(who are either in their teens or older) or like I said to also bring in the old Pokémon gamers.
For the starters in general I’m not quite sure they… Uh… Fit in with the Pokémon universe… They kind of look like rejected toys… However out of the three I do like the grass one.
Post what you think about the new starters and the playable characters in the comment section below.
