You've probably seen the new Pokemon starters by now; above, from left, you can see Popplio, Rowlet and Litten. Nintendo hasn't shared any new info since last week, because they're Nintendo, but that hasn't stopped the internet from imagining what these new Pokemon evolve into...



1. There are some "leaks" of the new starter evolutions that are more than a bit suspect...
