Today’s Pokémon Presents livestream wasn’t as full of news as previous announcements about upcoming games for Nintendo Switch”Pokémon Scarlet and Violet“. We learned last time that the 9th Gen games will be the iconic franchise’s first true attempt at an open-world RPG (“Legends Arceus” doesn’t count) and will also have a multiplayer co-op mode.

But for now, the new Pokémon announced for the Paldea region based in the Iberian Peninsula is just do not miss. Remember Lechonk? Remember Quaxleywhich looks like DALL-E rest Donald Duck?

Today we learned that Pokémon can now “terastallize” – or turn into Swarovski crystal-like versions of themselves – but what’s more interesting is this guy. Fida. A fabulous puppy that helps you cook. Excuse me?

Fido leather has elastic qualities and is both hard and soft. When these Pokémon get excited, they intimidate their opponents by puffing up their body to make themselves appear bigger. Fido ferments things around him using yeast in his breath. Yeast is useful for cooking, which is why this Pokémon has long been protected by people.

Yes, this new friend can help you make kombucha. And he can also fight for you. Great stuff all around.

The only other new Pokémon we’ve learned about is Cetitan, the “Tera Whale Pokémon” that lives in the snowy region of Paldea. Zetitan is not as interesting as Fido, but we will give him a chance. Look how weird his mouth is!

Description of Tsetitan is reading:

Chetitan must have strong muscles to support their huge bodies, and physical attacks using their bodies are incredibly powerful. They also migrate through snow-covered regions, protected by a thick layer of blubber.

Finally, the livestream confirmed that, just like the Alola, Galar, and Hisui regions, the Paldea region will feature variants of previously discovered Pokémon.

The first new variant is the Paldean Wooper, which… To be honest, I still haven’t decided if that makes me happy or horrified. It’s convincing, at least.

Our once bright blue noisy buddy now looks like he drowned in a barrel of mud. That’s because… that’s the way it was.

pokedex queue input:

In ancient times, Wooper lived underwater in the Paldea area. Having lost in the struggle for territory, it seems that they began to live in the swamps on land. In order not to dry out while living on land, they began to cover their bodies with a poisonous film. Their gills have hardened from living on land for so long. Their bodies are heavy and they move slowly, but they can defend themselves by firing a powerful poisonous liquid from their gills.

So now the Wooper is Poison/Ground instead of Water/Ground. At least now it won’t be completely destroyed by herbal attacks, but… at what cost? “Struggle for territory”? Wooper okay?

Yes, also, apparently, the legendary Pokémon Corydon and Miraydon can turn into motorcycles and planes. Of course I think.
