[NEWS] Grookey Evolutions Leaked for Pokemon Sword & Shield ?
Assuming this is real, I'm pleasantly surprised, personally. I too thought it would be more traditionally 'male' in design, but I'm glad it isn't. Considering every other 'starter' (with the obvious exception of Primarina) across the generations is either 'male-leaning' or gender-neutral - if not outright 'male' in design - I like the direction they're taking the recent 'starter' designs.

And while we're on the topic of 'female-leaning' Grass-type Pokémon designs: I also like that this design doesn't fall into the now-infamous "grass bae" trope that a lot of 'female-leaning' Grass-type designs end up taking after. To wit, so far there are: Bellossom, Lilligant, Tsareena, Roserade, and arguably Lurantis, setting this precedent. Whereas most other Grass-type designs are either 'male-leaning' or relatively gender-neutral. I would describe this Pokémon as 'female-leaning,' but definitely not a "grass bae."
