Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Get a Load of Lechonk

A new trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet revealed two new eye-catching legendaries on Wednesday, but a much smaller, rounder pocket monster has stolen the spotlight. Its name? "Lechonk."

"Lechonk is 100% going to be on my team," said one future Pokemon wielder in the comments. "A Pokemon being named LECHONK is truly a historical moment," wrote another. 

I understand completely, The Pokémon Company. You’re telling me I have no choice but to shave off Lechonk’s heavy flesh and sacrifice its snout for the good of the people. 

All the new Pokémon shown in the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet trailer

The first new Pokemon shown was Pawmi, a tiny yellow Electric-type Pokemon (that isn't Pikachu) and "generates electricity by rubbing its cheeks, then it shocks its opponents by touching them with the pads on its forepaws." 

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are the latest chapters in the Pokemon franchise, introducing a new region and new Pokemon to the series. The games will launch for Nintendo Switch on November 18. 

The little piglet premiered with four other Pokemon in the game's new trailer.
