Sprigatito, Quaxly, and Fuecoco have captured the people’s minds and memes.
If you somehow missed it, two new Pokémon games were just announced: Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will come to Nintendo Switch later this year.
But right now, the internet is more interested in the new starter Pokémon, Sprigatito, Quaxly, and the ever-chomping Fuecoco.
Fuecoco in particular has been the subject of a lot of discussions, because of a fan theory that says that the fire starters correspond to the Chinese Zodiac.
He doesn’t look like a horse, snake, ox, or sheep to us — more like a gator — so we guess that fan theory is cooked. Oh well, it was a nice run.
This one’s particularly... creative.
Some people are just here for the memes.
