Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is following series tradition and will be introducing a number of new creatures for players to capture and train. It is unknown how many pocket monsters will be added in the new games, as previous generations have added different amounts of new creatures to the Pokedex. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be open world, which opens the doors for a lot of unique types of pocket monsters to populate the game.
Out of the revealed creatures for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet there has been one that is taking fans by storm since its introduction in the latest trailer. That is the pig Pokemon known as Lechonk, who has seemingly won the hearts of fans all over the world. So much so that gamers have been making a lot of art dedicated to it and have made it one of the most popular pocket monsters at the moment.
A Redditor going by the name SemiProRose released a clip showing them create a rug of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Lechonk. The video shows the entire process that went into making the piece, all along to “Look At That Dog” by the YouTube comedian TomSka. According to SemiProRose the rug took around 9 hours to make, with the end result being an incredibly cute rug that any fan of Lechonk would likely be happy to have. The artist did say that they are selling them at their website, Shrugz, along with a few other designs as well.
SemiProRose’s rug has received a positive response on Reddit. Users are calling it amazing and cool, and are loving the song used in the video as it matches Lechonk’s “chonky” appearance. Many commenters expressed their love for Lechonk, with one stating that it will go down in history because of videos similar to SemiProRose’s, as it continues to hold up Lechonk’s meme status. One fan states that this is the best thing they have ever seen in their life, while another mentions that it is one rug that no one should wipe their feet on.
SemiProRose is not the only one creating custom items that feature Lechonk. A Redditor known as Affectionate-Glass88 embroidered the Pokemon onto a Nike sweater, creating a piece that can help them show off their love for the pocket monster. This is not the only bit of clothing that the user has made, as their Instagram account shows a number of other works that they have created, all featuring Pokemon designs. The sweaters show that Game Freak’s series is still going strong despite being around for over 25 years, something not many other franchises can claim.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will release for the Nintendo Switch on November 18th.
