Pokemon was a franchise I could never really get into. I watched the TV show when I was a kid but I stopped pretty early.
The last Pokemon I can remember seeing in the show are Lucario and that one penguin starter. The PokeRap pretty much sums up my Pokemon knowledge.
The video games are foreign territory too. I still don’t understand why they release two at the same time. To get more money? At some point, Nintendo is going to run out of pairs to name the games after. Pokemon Coat and Jacket coming out in 2030.
Either way, I at least know that some Pokemon can look kind of freaky. Or like Sir Farfetch’d. He is Mr. Steal Your Girl, Your Sister, Your Brother, Your Cousin, and Everyone On Your Street.
So, here’s 10 Sword and Shield Pokemon I’m seeing for the very first time.
Thievul looks like it’s disappointed in not only you but its coworkers, the economy, its children, and itself.
Its first form looks like it just dropped its ice cream on the ground so it seems like Thievul could never get past that. It grew up to be perpetually depressed and it is now consumed with regret.
I can also imagine Thievul sitting behind a desk in a mundane office mindlessly typing away at an Excel spreadsheet.
It turns out Thievul is also a dark type Pokemon so this brooding fox is what happened to Swiper when he couldn’t take anymore of Dora’s no swiping.
