Meet Lechonk, Pokemon Scarlett and Violet, Who Have Spawned a Meme Sensation.
Last week, Pokemon Scarlet released its full reveal. It also introduced us to a new collection of adorable monsters. We were able to see our initial line-up, which includes the adorable Sprigatito and Fuecoco and some new friends, Pawmi and Smoliv.
We were also able to see the unnamed new region and confirmed that Pokémon Silk and Violet would be launching a co-op mode. This is something I am incredibly excited about. While the game will be released on 18 November 2022, we can still enjoy Lechonk, the latest internet obsession.
Lechon is a hog Pokemon with “Aroma Veil” and “Gluttony” abilities. Official Pokemon lore says that while it may look fat, its body is mostly muscle-built by constantly walking around looking for food. What an icon. The internet has been in a frenzy over this adorable chonky hog. These are just some of the reactions. It is safe to say that Lechonk is a favorite of the GAMINGbible staff. Smoliv deserves some attention, however. Smolin is an olive, after all. Smolin. It’s too cute. Pokemon Violet and Pokemon Scarlet were very aware of the memes.
