You probably won’t want to catch these.
Since this morning’s reveal of the three new starters in Pokemon Sword and Shield – the grass chimp Grookey, the fire rabbit Scorbunny and the water lizard Sobble – there’s been a lot of discussion around what their evolutions might look like.
After all, Pokemon always start out cute and cuddly but can end up as imposing, muscle-studded beasts. We at IGN decided it would be a fun experiment to draw what we think Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble’s evolutions might look like, but the catch is…not a lot of us can draw.
