The internet is in love with the new Pokémon Lechonk

Yesterday we received a second trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. While it revealed the box legendries and more about the games, the standout was Lechonk.

This little pig Pokémon has captured the heart of the internet for several reasons starting with its name. “Lechon” is the name of roasted pig in many cultures and this is combined with the word “chonk” to give us the perfect moniker for this little guy, especially given its official description:

“If attacked by an opponent and startled, it will charge forward in a panic.​ It may appear fat at first glance, but in reality, the Pokémon’s body is mostly muscle built by constantly walking around in search of food,” the Pokémon website reads.

As usual the artists of the internet have descended on this new character to produce an insane amount of art in a small amount of time.

At the time of publication it’s been less than 24 hours since the release of the trailer but we’ve found dozens of fan works on the internet already, especially on Twitter.

Below find a collection of some of our favourites and make sure to click through to Twitter and drop some likes and follows.

Before you do that, however, just take note that some of these artists create and share NSFW content on their accounts.
