Pokepatch Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Gorochu

Everyone’s hyped for the upcoming Pokemon game that comes out November 18th, 2022, Scarlet and Violet. A trailer was just released showcasing some of the new game mechanics and new Pokemon! This has sparked even more hype and conversations about what the new game will be like and what other Pokemon we’ll see in the future. One of those in question is possibly Gorochu!

What is Gorochu?

Many new and longtime Pokemon fans may have never heard of the Pokemon Gorochu. This is because it doesn’t exist or at least never officially released. Among many others, Gorochu is a Pokemon that was created as a prototype and was supposed to be the final evolution of Pikachu and Raichu but the concept was scrapped. We never got to see Gorochu officially, but some fans are hopeful that we could see this Pokemon in the future.

Will Gorochu be in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

This theory comes from @arnau555 on Twitter. They point out that the new Pokemon shown in the Scarlet and Violet trailer, Pawmi, shows some glaring similarities to the Gorochu prototype. This could mean that Gorochu will not be a Pikachu evolution but a new Pokemon altogether as the evolution of Pawmi. The fan draws some concept are for the Pawmi evolution, nicknamed Goromi, seen above.

Do you think Gorochu or Goromi will be in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet? Let us know in the comments below!
