YouTube user and Pokémon fan Pdwinnall believes he has discovered some secret information about the evolved forms of Pokémon Sun and Moon Versions‘ three starter Pokémon. Hidden in the code for the official Japanese website of the upcoming games, he believes he’s found files that point to Litten’s evolved form being Fire-Ground and Popplio’s being Water-Fighting. The key lies in the image files used to identify the starters’ types. Pdwinnall discovered unused icons for Ground and Fighting types hidden on the website.

Other fans have come up with theories of their own. Some believe these icons might be related to completely separate Pokémon yet to appear on the site, while others think the numbering in the file names points to Rowlet’s evolution actually being Grass-Ground while Litten will remain single-typed. You can watch the video above to decide for yourself.
