There’s a new Pokemon in town and people are saying he looks just like Donald Trump.

Recently, The Pokemon Company released a five-minute trailer for its upcoming game “Pokemon Sun and Moon” which showed off a few new creatures — including Gumshoos, a mongoose-like Pokemon that shares an uncanny resemblance to the Republican presidential nominee.

Gumshoos is the evolution of the previously released Pokemon Yungoos and according to the trailer, will act like a “boss” in the game that trainers have to beat.

According to Heavy, Twitter users immediately noticed the similarities. It’s also worth mentioning the game takes place in the “Alola” region, giving users the ability to make many jokes involving Trump’s campaign slogan.

No one knows if Gumshoos is actually meant to look like Trump. Maybe by the time the game comes out on Nov. 18, The Pokemon Company will have shed some light on the matter.
