With the reveal of Dexit, many people claimed they’d be boycotting Pokémon Sword and Shield. However, the lure of a core Pokémon game on console was too hard for many ro resist. Heck, I know several people who bought a Switch solely for Sword and Shield.

When the new Pokémon leaked
I know many people who claimed they didn’t want to know anything about the new Pokémon games before they released. That all seemed to change when several of the new Pokémon designs leaked a week early.

Since Red and Blue, there have always been creepy Pokémon in the franchise. Hatterne is yet another one of these creatures that we’d never want to see in the real world.

Pokémon with character
Pokémon Camp has provided a new way to interact with your favorite Pokémon. The fun thing is you never quite know how your specific Pokémon will react.

Getting a little heavy
This is funny in a macabre sort of way. Even Pokémon is weighing in on the decline of nature.

Nothing sounds more terrifying or more comical than a Gigantamax Pikachu. I’m not sure if it wants to eat my soul or if it needs to use the bathroom.

Trading a Pokémon’s soul
When you trade a Pokémon away it can be an emotional experience. Although, this particular trainer must really regret their decision.

A little too similar . . .
Those curly, light-colored locks and that sassy attitude kinda seem a little too similar. Once seen, you can’t unsee it.

Running for dear life
Seeing Pokémon in the Wild Area can be a frightening experience, especially if that Pokémon is several levels higher than you. Your only option is to run for the hills!
