Every summer, Riot Games introduces a new set of Pool Party skins for champions in League of Legends. These skins all portray champions enjoying the summer life in swimming gear. Today, it looks like they are teasing some new ones in a tweet.

The Pool Party skins
League of Legends already has quite a few Pool Party skins. Here are the champions who already have these skins:
- Miss Fortune
- Lee Sin
It seems unlikely that any of these champions will get a second Pool Party skin. Here are some guesses on who the champions in the picture might be.
Who’s getting a new skin this summer?
We already know that we are getting Pool Party Taliyah because of a video last year. This is likely the champion on the right of the image. The champion next to Taliyah has short legs and furry feet, meaning it will probably be a Yordle. We can rule Ziggs out, so it could be someone like Heimerdinger or Gnar.
The next set of legs has short shorts and tattoos. We can safely assume this will be a female champion. The tattoos likely indicate that it is Jinx, especially given the design. Jinx doesn’t yet have a Pool Party skin and is always a popular candidate for new skins. This could, of course, be another champion with tattoos like Katarina or Karma, or a champion that we don’t know to have tattoos.
The next two seem fairly obvious. The champion on the far left has robotic legs, so we can assume Orianna for this one. The champion to the right of that appears to be a male with a trident-like object. This is probably either Jarvan IV or Xin Zhao, but it seems more likely that it will be Jarvan.
With this teaser, expect to learn more about these skins and a summer event in the next few days or weeks! Who do you think the champions in the teaser are?
