The so called "chinese uncle riddler" is back again, and according to 4chan he released a new post. Also there's some people arguing out there that the uncle riddler made the riddles before Khu (to be confirmed). Just to remind you this uncle riddler posted legit info during the Sword and Shield leak season, so he's not a fraud.

Don't believe anything from the supposed Uncle. Not unless Khu says to as he is our only truly reliable source.

Just because one comment you saw, doesn't mean people on here think Pokemon is better than Zelda or Mario.
I mean, it wasn't just one comment. I distinctly remember how, many pages ago, someone (no idea if it was the same person or not (and, to be honest, not really that relevant either)) claimed that the reason Pokémon generally has its own directs/presentations is so that Pokémon news wouldn't overshadow other Nintendo titles, which made me go like "Whaaaaat?! :lapras:". And I definitely remember some other people on Reddit saying that Pokémon is so big that it made sense for them not to reveal much, so as to not take attention away from other games. But disregarding the popularity and spread of the belief, I just found the thought to be very bizarre and the fact that someone brought it up again just reminded me of how insane I found it to be. And that just made me want to explain why I found it so perplexing.

But this game looks like something new, like they are, after years, giving the people what they ask for. They're actually excited for the first time in years. So am I.
Meh, I'm not too impressed with what I've seen so far. Graphics and aesthetics are still as subpar and unremarkable as SWSH (except, unlike in SWSH, now I can clearly see each pixel that makes up the edge of a character's hair/plumage or the edge of a Pokémon's model), the fact that we're already gonna have a fourth gimmick that's likely gonna be region/gen specific and be disregarded by the time the next games are announced has me rolling my eyes, the open-worldness of the game isn't something that captivates me (and if towns are still gonna be made up of just 2-to-6 buildings and have a whopping population of 10 people, I'm gonna find the vastness of these games to be laughable) and after the disaster that was SWSH's story I really have no fate that this time they'll do anything that would be at least passable.

I might eventually end up getting Scarlet, partially because I love reptiles and Koraidon's design is wonderful, partially because crocodilians are my all-time favorites and I wouldn't mind finally playing a proper Pokémon game where one of them is a starter, and partially because I wouldn't mind having a game to dump some of my GO Pokémon that isn't strictly restricted to just the first 4 gens (or just the first 2 gens, if Let's Go Johto is ever gonna be a thing). Honestly, I've grown apathetic enough with the games, that, at this point, I'm only excited about the new Pokémon and the new concepts (like the the designs and ideas behind the new characters, the looks of the new region and the thoughts behind those aesthetics, the broad strokes of the plot... stuff like that). It's probably why I'm really not bothered at all by leaks at this point.

It looks like it's surfing on some current and simple hypothesis:
The trailer showed a screen split in three with a Noble-like Arena, a battle arena and a racing arena, that might suggest that you need to "climb" different steps/challenges to get the badges. Here represented by the badge at the top of the tower. However, the choice of a Pasio badge is interesting, maybe it suggests that there is less than 8 badges this time, compensated by more complete and longer trials to get them.
We already "know" that legendaries are rideable and have 5 forms. And the most logical hypothesis is having forms for each field (land, water, etc).
With the Pokemon centers looking like gas stations, there is also something going on, the legendaries might not be the only ones rideable. And with an open world, you need some sort of transportation that need to be healed/repaired (and I don't buy the "we get the legendary early in game to travel with it" theory).

The thing kind of new is this particular concept of fusion. It's not really a complete fusion but one Pokemon giving new types (and form) to another one. edit: man-made Pokemon is indeed a more obvious interpretation as said below.

Not sure it really can be trusted. Also, for Swsh, I thought the Affleck leak was the only credible one.

It’s robot variants of existing monsters. The first row is four man made species, the middle row is the existing versions, bottom row is man made variants of them.

The fact that they went so far as to make fanart makes this feel very fake. The old riddler just used existing images for their hints.

You know, as much as some might not like Khu's riddle format, surely we can all agree that his stuff is far more legible than these types of "leaks", right? I mean, what are the top right images even supposed to mean? That there's past and future forms for some Pokémon? That Pokémon fusions are a thing? That artificial forms are gonna be this gen's gimmick?

Also, out of curiosity, how old is this supposed leak? 'Cause, if it's recent, I find the bottom-left part's hints about the Legendaries having forms based on the type of "terrain" they traverse being treated as a noteworthy thing to leak to be pretty funny, since I'm pretty sure a lot of people were already speculating about that being the case since a few days after the second trailer dropped.

They are X Pokemon arts from the fangame Pokemon Xenoverse.
Alternative forms of existing Pokemon from another dimension if I understood well. However I saw a walkthrough video where the Raichu is said to be Surge's one, resurected.

Yeah, even my bro, who doesn't follow pokemon leaks or even play the games; when I showed him Koraidon, he asked, "why is it a motorcycle?"

Like, thanks captain obvious leaker.

Damn. You know it's a complete dry spell in news today when nothing is said on here after 3 and a half hours.
Tomorrow, June 30th, has the potential to be one of the most memorable days for pokémon fans: will the zodiac theory die? The future of the zodiac theory rests on Fuecoco's shoulders, and I'm kind of afraid of seeing the theory falling apart (I personally believe the zodiac is legit, but Fuecoco represents a serious threat).

Technically its already June 30th for Khu so we might very well get the Fuecoco stuff a bit earlier than expected

I haven't seen this shared yet:
KhuTweet.PNG


Sorry for the really low quality, I clipped it from an image...ignore the red circle, I didn't put it there. Khu said he would be trading for all the starters apparently.

I just wanted to share this because it confirms a new doggo.

That's not the Chinese Riddler, for one thing. That's the wrong user icon.

And he only leaked for Sun and Moon, anyway. We didn't really have any credible riddle leaks for SwSh. Pretty much just the Affleck post and I think there was another short one off 4chan that just said that pokemon would grow large.

Considering how Chinese Knockoffs are a thing so common I just giggle when I see them, one could joke China don't care about ANYBODY'S copyright laws. :LOL:

Also possibility of another regional diglett being a thing:

Nooooooooooo no god please nooooooo there are so many more pokemon deserving of that slot than the pokemon who's entire gimmick is you can only see its head.
I mean, what does the rest of it look like underground? Btw, I looked up images on Google on that very thing and got some results that were....well,they were something.

They're saying it's the "chinese uncle" that posted it,not the chinese riddler.

Part of me wants it to die, in order to end the endless discussions on this. However I fear it will not, people will use it as an argument to say the pattern never existed in the first place.

If it's serpentine, maybe more people will understand that the theory implies inspiration and creative freedom, rather than identical matches (because yeah, we know Fennekin is not a dog, thanks). But the discussions will continue.
