It’s thought that the information arrives from the same person or group that leaked the Spaceworld demo ROM (a prototype of Pokemon Gold and Silver) and a series of beta Pocket Monsters that were circulated back in 2018.The Pokemon community has surmised that a Pokemon Pink would likely have featured Clefairy or Jigglypuff in the spotlight instead of Pikachu – Clefairy having been mooted as a potential mascot for the series before Pikachu’s popularity, and Jigglypuff becoming popular due to the Pokemon anime.
Twitter user SnorlaxMonster noted in a reply to the original tweet that a Japan-Only Game Boy Camera frame once featured Pikachu and Clefairy standing side by side, but this was changed into a Wario Land design for the European release of the peripheral. How intriguing!
In other Pokemon news, The Pokemon Company recently announced that players who disconnect from ranked matches in Pokemon Sword and Shield may be permanently banned.
Jordan Oloman is a freelance writer for IGN who still can’t get the theme from Clefairy Says out of his brain. Hit him over the head with a proverbial rubber mallet on Twitter.
