Pokemon Sun and Moon?s mascots, Solgaleo and Lunala have been all over the internet these past couple of months. They?re pretty iconic and look very powerful as well.
They basically fill in all the usual expectations for Legendary beasts since the first Pokemon game. However, just like the many new ground breaking additions being added into Pokemon Sun and Moon, it appears that Solgaleo and Lunala are set to break the norm.
And all this comes from a new startling revelation that Solgaleo and Lunala have pre-evolutions. And everything starts from a couple of revealing Pokemon cards.
The TCG Pokemon cards have finally been revealed. Many cards of different Pokemon were featured in the two box sets but Solgaleo and Lunala?s cards were the highlight of the boxes? covers. But the shocking revelation came from inspecting their cards and it was leaked that these two legendaries actually evolve from another Pokemon.
And remember, this is isn?t some third party company levering on Pokemon mania. All of this is considered canon.
This is completely unheard of in the franchise. Legendary Pokemon are always envisioned as god-like creatures who have always been overpowered since their beginning. The question now is: just what Pokemon did these fearsome titans evolve from? It?s probably something powerful like Salamence or Tyranitar right?
This Pre-Evolution theory was made by Youtuber TyranitarTube. The cute little, puffball Cosmog is not just Solgaleo?s but Lunala?s pre-evolution. The theory is that Cosmog is a pure psychic just as Solgaleo and Lunala, and that his origin?s hint close to the two Legendary Pokemons.
And hey, Cosmog is pretty cute but he is described as an extremely rare Pokemon and what?s interesting is it only ?selects a few (trainers?) in Alola and that the old kings of Alola have named it the child of the stars.
In addition, it?s also been explained that when light falls upon Cosmog, it takes in the light and grows. This hints that it will evolve. After the Pokemon data mine leaks came out, a photo of one Pokemon came out that Looks like Cosmog?s evolved form.
But the interesting thing is that this Pokemon has features that are reminiscent of both Solgaleo and Lunala. This Pokemon features accents that look exactly like Solgaleo?s golden main. The Pokemon also features deep blue color and oval shape very similar to Lunala?s color and general shape with wings spread.
More questions than answers
The only problem with this theory is that although it ties in a lot of interesting points together, we?re honestly left with more questions than answers at this point. But the theory sure was interesting.
