Some speculation has started on Twitter recently after some images showing potential Pokémon designs, rumored to be the Gen 8 starter Pokémon, have come to the surface.
The images, including a grass/electric type bear, a fire/steel type horse and a pure water type, were posted by Twitter user @SkinnySnubbull earlier. It’s worth noting that there is no official source tied to where these have come from.
But is there more to it?
Apparently the original thread and images mysteriously got deleted, which are also unsearchable via a reverse lookup.

Thread mysteriously got deleted and images weren’t linked anywhere after reversing which is hype. Could this be Gen 7 leaks all over pic.twitter.com/dRDzEa3rIG

As with all rumors, this should be taken with a pinch of salt and is by no means a confirmation of what the Gen 8 starter Pokémon will look like. But still discuss away because that is what we do.
