Who doesn't like inside men? They get you all sorts of good stuff including scans of the Pokemon Diamond/Pearl starters.
This particular inside man, who none of us know, got these scans out days before the Japanese magazine they are featured in (CoroCoro) goes up on the shelf for sale. That's some skill.
Some people have approached this with skepticism since there have been unconfirmed rumors floating around for a bit regarding the actual starters. Here is your evidence folks. The starting Pokemon are:
- Grass-Type Naetle
- Fire-type Hikozaru
- Water-type Pochama
Yeah, we thought you'd like that.
