Logos for alleged Pokemon Let’s Go games featuring Togepi and Wooper have been circling social media lately, much to the amusement of unconvinced fans.

With Pokemon Day just around the corner, the Pokemon community has been eagerly anticipating what the next game announcement might be, and as such, rumors and alleged ‘leaks’ are everywhere.

In one such case, screenshots of a supposed leak have been floating around the internet lately, pointing to direct Pokemon Let’s Go sequels featuring Togepi and Wooper as the featured Pokemon much like Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.

With a list of features and two premium logos, fans were initially excited, but many have begun to question the legitimacy of the leak.

Pokemon Let’s Go Togepi rumors appear to be false

While the logos for Let’s Go Togepi and Let’s Go Wooper could pass for a logo mock-up from The Pokemon Company, there doesn’t seem to be much to support the claims.

The supposed leak has gained a lot of traction from the following post, which posts an anonymous ‘leak’ that reports to reveal some details on upcoming Pokemon games. This ‘leak’ is posted alongside some fairly impressive logos for a potential Pokemon Let’s Go Wooper & Togepi.

Admittedly, the features listed in the post do sound very interesting.

The new Poke Ball Plus accessory featuring Celebi would go down well with the community – although it may lead to discourse in the same way that the Mew accessory did – and there’s a lot of excitement around the idea of Johto remakes.

There is something to be said for the quality of the logos that accompany the post, too, as one fan commenting underneath the original post says, “Ooo I hope these are real! The Let’s Go games were beautifully stylised.”

There isn’t much in the way of official evidence to support this supposed leak, though. Johto remakes could be next based on the official Pokemon release schedule, but an entry in the Let’s Go series doesn’t seem to fit in with where The Pokemon Company is going in 2024.

Additionally, the choice of Pokemon featured seems strange. Fans don’t seem convinced by these logos, with another comment dismissing them as “immediately fake” while another post declares it to be an early April Fool’s joke.

We won’t have to wait long to find out if these games are real or not, though – Pokemon Day is right around the corner, and it’s likely that this is the day when we’ll find out about any big announcements for the franchise.
