Ahead of Pokemon Day's presumed and anticipated reveal of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's DLC, known leaker Riddler Khu posts a series of strange teases: Mega Charizard X, Primal Reversion Groudon, Serperior, Galarian Darmanitan Zen Mode, Reshiram, Nihilego, and Ultra Necrozma. Khu always posts their leaks in the form of riddles, but this one is leaving many fans scratching their heads, especially given these appear to be BDSP/SV-style sprites.
For the uninitiated, Riddler Khu is one of the most trustworthy leakers in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet community. In the past, they've leaked accurate information regarding Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet (including the starters ahead of their reveal), and other Pokemon-related content. Longtime followers are sometimes able to piece together their teases, but this one is very strange indeed.
However, Pokemon Day is taking place on February 27, and many are expecting Nintendo to host a Pokemon Presents Direct. This is where many expect to learn about any upcoming DLC, so it stands to reason that Khu's teaser ties into this. Perhaps this teaser is on the nose, and Khu is just teasing the addition of these Pokemon, which in turn would hint at Mega Evolution's return in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC, but that seems unlikely. Khu suggests a few of these images are a joke, and if there was one guess, it would be tied to the Mega Evolution Pokemon.
Another possible theory is that each Pokemon somehow represents a new type of Pokemon or a new Paradox being introduced in the DLC, which would mean two new Fire/Dragons, a Fire/Ground, a Grass, a Fire/Ice, a Poison/Rock, and a Psychic/Dragon. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet themselves tease Ultra Beasts, so it's perhaps on the nose about their addition. Another possible theory is that the Gen 6 Pokemon listed here support the Kalos DLC theories, especially since Khu followed up his initial tweets by posting AZ Floette, and AZ also doubling as shorthand for Area Zero.
All in all, it's possible one of these are true, none of these are true, or it is something else entirely, but Khu's fans are busy theorizing and trying to understand what they are hinting at. This is, no doubt, one of their most widespread and confusing riddles, but hopefully, fans will have answers come Pokemon Day.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available now on Nintendo Switch.
