Several new Generation IX Pokémon, story elements, and more from pre-release copies of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have leaked online — and they show no signs of slowing down.

Among the new Pokémon revealed through leaked information are evolutions for Sprigatito, Fuecoco, Quaxly, and Lechonk, as well as brand-new Pokémon unrelated to those already announced.

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are reportedly handling the leaks aggressively, issuing DMCA takedown notices to those posting footage and screenshots from early copies of the games.

Nintendo Wire will not be hosting any of these leaked images or videos.

Those hoping to avoid perceived spoilers for the games should tread carefully on social media and search engines.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will launch worldwide for Nintendo Switch on Friday, November 18th, 2022.
