Pokémon Twitter memes and reacts to the latest Pokémon Presents

In the presentation released on August 3, Pokémon Presents provided more details about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet along with new Pokémon, features, characters, and other exciting reveals. As usual, the Pokémon community couldn’t help but pour their admiration the classic way–by posting memes on social media sites like Twitter.

One of the new Pokémon revealed is a dog made out of dough which could have been named Doughg, but they said its name is Fidough. This deliciously cute Pokémon has moist and smooth skin and breathes useful yeast.

Fidough is a must-protect creature, apparently, as it was said to be protected by the people long ago. But the Pokémon community seemed to have their own impressions about this cute creature, as seen in their reactions that were torn between admiring and wanting to cook and eat it.

Besides deliciously cute Fidough, a new Wooper variant called the Paldean Wooper also received lots of attention.

This poison-type variant seemed to have already poisoned the Pokémon community into loving it instantly.

Enough with the giggles because here’s where the actual fun lies.

Another thing revealed in the latest Pokémon Presents was a feature wherein the players could ride on the backs of Koraidon or Moraidon as transportation means. It could have been just a regular feature in the Pokémon franchise, but the fans couldn’t help but notice that Scarlet and Violet were just sentient motorbikes. What’s even funnier was that Koraidon had wheels but just used its legs to move around.

Not missing the opportunity, the Pokémon community also took to Twitter to poke fun at the new feature.

More than the fun, though, make sure to watch the latest Pokémon Presents for more exciting news like the three separate story campaigns, further details about the mentioned exciting bikes, and other details about the new features and characters.
