An alleged Pokemon Scarlet & Violet DLC leak included the launch of a pay-to-play wish shrine, but players are divided over its authenticity. The source also suggested that trainers would receive Munkidori, Okidogi, or Fezandipiti based on the starter Pokémon they chose.

On National Pokemon Day, The Pokemon Company announced that Scarlet & Violet would receive a two-part expansion pass, The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero. Part 1, The Teal Mask, will be released in Fall 2023, while Part 2, The Indigo Disk, will be released in Winter.

Each expansion transports users to new areas, including the city of Kitakami, to uncover the mysterious history of the location.

As with most Pokemon titles, leaks may have tainted the content of The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk.

Twitter user dusty billy goat has posted a screenshot of an unconfirmed leak surrounding the upcoming Scarlet & Violet DLC.

The unnamed author of the post claimed players would receive one of the new Pokemon trios depending on the starter they chose.

For example, Fuecoco users received the Ghost-type Munkidori, Sprigatito trainers received the Psychic-type Fezandipiti, and those who chose Quaxly received the Ground-type Okidogi.

Alongside the pre-determined party members, dustygogoat shared that the Scarlet & Violet DLC could reveal a pay-to-play wishing shrine that would cost players real money to earn obscure items and Pokemon.

Several comments have questioned and even denied the accuracy of the leak.

Some fans claimed The Pokemon Company would never take away trainers’ agency based on their starter picks and introduce microtransactions to mainline games.

“I don’t see it as real,” wrote TheAutisticCre1. “If that’s the case and the future is about buying additional Pokemon and not catching them, I guess I’ll have to stop.”

Other comments ranged from delighting in paying more money to catch a Shiny Jirachi faster than in Pokemon Go to complaining to GameFreak itself about the ordeal.

In February 2023, another Scarlet & Violet DLC leak suggested the expansion would mean the return of over 230 Pokémon. The extensive lineup included mons like Alcremie, Dewgong and Metagross. As for the confirmed additions, The Pokemon Company announced the arrival of Ninetales, Milotic, and Zebstrika.
