Nothing excites Pokemon fans more than the months leading up to a new game in the franchise as they can make all sorts of guesses and theories about which new designs will be appearing in the next generation of the popular video game series.
One fan's guess struck a chord with Dragon Ball fans as they "discovered" that the final evolution of the new starter Pokemon Grookey is none other than Dragon Ball's Cell.

Grookey is the grass monkey starter Pokemon introduced alongside other two new additions Scorbunny (which fans can't help but think of My Hero Academia's All Might) and Sobble (which might be the millennial favorite) during the initial presentation for the newest generation of the franchise: Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. But like most reveals in the past, fans have no idea what final form these cute newbies will take at their full strength.
Twitter user @Acccent jokingly asserts that Grookey's green design coupled with an orange, beak like mouth will eventually give way to Imperfect Cell. What makes this even funnier is that even if Grookey does turn into something akin to Cell, he's still got three more evolutions to look forward to. But while it will be some time until fans get to see Grookey's official evolutionary chain, it's going to be too funny imagining Cell making his Pokemon debut. Expect lots of "Leech Life" and "Mega Drain."
