Pokémon Scarlet/Violet have leaked

Here we go again

Just a few days back, SEGA suffered a major leak for Sonic Frontiers. The game was being sold early at multiple retailers, and then some unsavory characters leaked the ROM online. Unfortunately, it seems Nintendo and Pokémon Co. area about to go through the same thing with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

We’re not quite sure of the details on how just yet, but we can confirm that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have indeed leaked. If you’re on social media and you care about keeping these games unspoiled, you might want to mute some accounts/terms and steer extra clear of your usual internet haunts. You don’t want to happen upon any story spoilers when we’re this close to the game’s launch.

It seems this leak stems from someone getting their hands on the game early, although we don’t know if a ROM has made its way online. Sadly, even if the ROM hasn’t surfaced online yet, this leak means it’s just a matter of time.

Thanks to Jon Michael for the heads up!

The ROM hasn't been leaked yet - and the current leaker doesn't have the means to. However, one store doing this means others will, in time.

That’s a shame. Personally I’m not worried about “spoilers” for a Pokémon game but I know many are.

If Tears of the Kingdom, for example, leaked out almost two weeks before release date then I would absolutely avoid any social media and gaming sites.

I knew this would happen, but was hoping it wouldn't.

Time to turn off social media for a couple weeks.

a dobule pack of the game was sold to 1 lucky person early... they however do not have the ability to actually dump the game, so they have just been posting pictures of the game on his switch with what hes played so far... the game isnt downloadable anywhere by any means
