Play news Pokémon Scarlet Violet: The new legends are totally overshadowed by another creature!
In late February, Nintendo, Game Freak, and The Pokémon Company used Pokémon Day to formalize the ninth generation of the license, Pokémon Scarlet / Purple. Three months later, in a fairly normal window for the license, we had news of these new opuses!
News, and not least. We first learned that, as you might expect, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will be released on November 18, 2022 for the Nintendo Switch.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: full of information
Game Freak remembered that it was first truly open world Pokémon, which almost makes Pokémon Legends: Arceus pass a crucial test. Where things started to get very interesting was when we discovered that we could attend events and explore the world with three other coaches. Multiplayer terms have not yet been announced, but there is one significant development for the license. We met too Olim teachers (Pokemon Scarlet) and turum (Pokémon Violet), but also by the friend rival, Menzi.
Game Freak, however, could not leave us there without introducing us to some of the 9th generation pokémon, and beyond Poussacha, Chochodile and Coiffetongot the players to know Pohm, by Oliviniand two legends who are Koraidon and Miraidodoes not. However, it may be the two creatures that appear on the jacket, it was not they who caught the eye. Like Voltoutou in Pokémon Sword / Shield and Keunotor in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, it’s an early game Pokémon that has been created a real star on social networks: Gourmet or Lechonk (chubby) in its English version.
Gourmet, the new mascot on social media
As a further hint that the new region is inspired by Spain, this is a pokemon too for inspiration the Iberian pigs, with their black dress and their ears hanging slightly forward. The English name very quickly seduced the players, who were full of praise for the pokemon. Memes, artworks, comments to exclaim the creature’s cute, everything went to the point that Leconk is trending on Twitter. For some players, Gourmelet even evokes the little pigs to be captured in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker!
There are even puns included the same Stonks, become Lechonks to the occasion, or Charles Lechonk, referring to Charles Leclerc, the star driver of Ferrari in Formula 1. Yes, and there is little doubt on this subject, The Pokémon Company sells a Gourmelet plush, there is a good chance that it will be a huge success. Of course, we can not put all the creations in this novelty, but you have the overview in these lines. Before you leave us, let’s go back to this pokemon as it was presented.
The gourmet uses its developed sense of smell to search for food. He eats only the most fragrant wild herbs and the most juicy berries. Because of its eating habits, its body smells of weeds that Bug Pokémon hate. When he is surprised by an enemy’s attack, Gourmelet rushes forward in disaster. At first glance, his body appears to be made of fat, but in reality it consists mostly of muscle developed through his constant search for food. Talents: Aroma-Veil / Gluttony.
For more information on Pokémon Scarlet / Violet, we invite you to watch our news yesterday, written on the occasion of the release of the new trailer. If the communication plan follows the usual format, we should quickly learn more about the specific mechanics of the game, discover new pokemons, and learn the name of the region and its size.
