I’m Just Going to Have to Make My Peace With This Big, Dumb Fire Cat Wrestler Thing
The final starter evolutions for Pokemon Sun and Moon have not yet been officially released, but the Internet is a wily beast, and some data-miners were able to pull the sprite files from the recently hacked demo. Behold, the final starter evolutions!
I don’t like any of them.
These final starters were released months ago in a “leak”, but for the longest time, I denied them. I hoped they were just another fan-made bit of nonsense. I denied their truth for so long! But now there’s no getting around it. These are our final starters. I’m going to have to pick one of them for Sun and/or Moon.
I wanted to go with Litten, the fire cat. He was the coolest looking of the starters. But his final evolution is super dumb and ugly. Another fire/fighting Pokemon? And a big humanoid pro wrestler? Didn’t we just have that with the pig not two generations ago?!
Personally, I prefer animalistic Pokemon. I don’t like humanoids. Which means I should probably pick the owl or the seal, but I don’t like either of them! The owl just looks too busy, and I don’t like the idea of a flying starter. And I like the seal in concept, but not in execution. That thing clearly belongs in the water. How am I supposed to picture the seal following my Pokemon around? She’ll just be flopping along after me. I don’t want to break my mental role play!
So it looks like it’s gonna be me and that big, dumb fire cat wrestler thing…
