Game Freak recently announced that a new mythical Pokémon would be coming to Sword and Shield in the near future. The developers behind the Pokémon franchise have only left us a silhouette of the new creature and gone on to say that more information will be revealed on February 27, 2020. In the meantime, the internet is making both hilarious and awesome guesses for what this mythical Pokémon will look like. Check them out!
It's always Charizard
Many people haven't been too happy with how much effort Game Freak has put into making Charizard variants. After all, there are plenty of other Pokémon out there who could use a cool new version. This image makes fun of Charizard's ubiquity. Note the Charizard heads on the Sword and Shield logos.
Pikachu is obviously the most identifiable Pokémon of them all. There have been a few different Pikachu variants, including ones where this adorable mouse is wearing various hats. Perhaps the new mythical Pokémon is a crazy looking Pikachu.
This creepy Mr. Mime looks like it's going to tear you apart in your sleep while smiling all the while.
If it's not Pikachu or Charizard, there's always a chance it's just a variant for an existing Pokémon, like Purugly. You've got to admit; those ears do look similar.
Question: What would Egghead/Dr. Robotnik look like as a mythical Pokémon? Answer:
I guess those claws could belong to a crazy looking Crash Bandicoot. Lol
Tekken a stab at it
Heihachi's hair definitely does look a lot like the new mythical Pokémon's ears.
Michelin Man or pencil grips?
I've got to admit that the ribbing on those arms does put me in mind of those brightly colored pencil grips.
While there are a lot of jokes flying around, there are also some artistic interpretations for what the new mythical Pokémon will actually look like. Here's @CringeBoomer's prediction.https://twitter.com/CringeBoomer/status/1228520007589601280
Seriously though, with the way the toes are shaped, it's likely some kind of monkey Pokémon. Take a look at this gorgeous creation by @TomycaseM. The final reveal might actually look something like this.
