New Pokémon Lechonk garners appreciation from Pinoys and International Netizens

With the back-to-back releases of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon is not yet done in releasing new games for its trainers. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is set to be released this November for Nintendo Switch.


Pokémon released a new trailer for its upcoming games in which new Legendary Pokémon, all-new characters, advanced gameplay features, and a four-player multiplayer were showcased. But what the internet peeps found really amusing and was going crazy over it was the unveiled new Hog Pokémon, Lechonk.

Lechonk was one of the new Pokémons introduced in the trailer. The new Pokémon region was also showcased and it appears that it took inspiration from Mediterranean Spain. This memeworthy Hog Pokémon’s name was derived from the popular pork dish Lechon, which is popular in Spain, Portugal, and of course, the Philippines.

With its name sounding more like Lechon, the Pinoys and the internet has a lot to say about it. Here are the witty remarks made with Lechonk, from cuisine to making relatable comments.
