The next cat girl from Inazuma is described in more depth according to recent Genshin Impact leaks. She is another Geo shielder by the name of Momoka, if the details are accurate. Despite the fact that it makes thematic sense for a Geo character to produce shields, this will be the third Geo shielder in the anime game, after Zhongli and Yun Jin. Perhaps she can accomplish enough to distinguish herself from the others besides being somewhat feline.
New shielders are certainly welcome if they can fill an elemental role while protecting the team, but to be a new Geo shielder when Zhongli already exists is going to raise a lot of questions. Zhongli has the strongest shields in the game, no question, so now we need to know what else Momoka has to offer.
Yun Jin, for instance, provides useful attack buffs alongside her shield, greatly benefitting characters like Yoimiya and Hu Tao. Even so, Zhongli is also often used on those same teams because his shield is just that good.
It’s also been said that Momoka will be a five-star sword wielder, which would make her a candidate to be the first Geo character to enter the standard banner. There’s no way to know for sure, but it would be stranger if she didn’t get added, seeing as there will already be two Pyro claymores and a Dendro character in there by the time she arrives.
Genshin Impact leaks suggest new cat girl is another Geo shielder: anime girl with black hair and purple clothes
These details come from Mero on Twitter, and you can get a preview of what she looks like from another Genshin leaker named kuroo, although they have deleted the images from their Twitter page.
We won’t see Momoka until version 3.6 or later, but with Genshin Impact version 3.5 currently underway, you can pull for one for Cyno or Dehya — one of the aforementioned Pyro claymores. And those who wait can pull for Ayaka and Shenhe in the second half.
