Pokemon Unite all but confirmed recent leaks suggesting that the next playable character added to the game will be the Generation 6 started Pokemon, Delphox.

Pokemon Unite has introduced a plethora of new Pokemon to its roster since launch, now hosting over 30 Pokemon to choose from.

TiMi Studios has no plans of slowing down either, as the official Pokemon Unite Twitter account recently revealed the game’s next character.

This tweet confirms a well-known leaker’s datamine, who claimed that the next character added to the roster would be Gen 6’s Delphox.

Espeon was the most recent roster addition, serving as a Ranged Attacker.

The leak comes by way of Twitter user @ElChicoEevee, who found assets for both Espeon and Delphox before either official confirmation.

While Espeon was added to Pokemon Unite on May 16, ElChicoEevee leaked assets for the Pokemon on April 27.

Additionally, they claimed that Delphox would follow Espeon not long after as another Ranged Attacker.

Though fans were doubtful of this claim, ElChicoEevee provided leaked assets of Delphox as well, including renders of the Pokemon with an orange background confirming the role.

However, it seems those doubting the claims may have to reevaluate the leaks, as Pokemon Unite’s Twitter has now confirmed Delphox is up next.

The official Twitter account previously posted a teaser image showing a swirl of fire surrounding an obscured Pokemon, which added credibility to the leak thanks to the fire-typing.

Additionally, the center of the teaser image showed what appeared to be a stick conjuring the swirling flames around the Pokemon, which is Delphox’s signature means of attack.

Now fans know officially that Delphox will make its way into Pokemon Unite sometime on June 8 as the game’s next Ranged Attacker.
