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.

Westboro Baptist Church ‘recruits’ Jigglypuff, other Pokémon as latest spokesmen

In some weird twist of fate, the Westboro Baptist Church’s latest campaign involves the Pokémon Jigglypuff, Pikachu and Squirtle.

There’s been no shortage of strange events surrounding the recently released game “Pokémon Go,” from the woman who found a dead body while playing to robbers using the game to “lure” victims. And now, WBC —a fringe religious group known for their homophobic messages — can be added to the list.

Turns out, one one of the game’s “gyms,” which are designated spots where players can challenge one another, is located at WBC in Topeka, Kansas. For those who aren’t familiar with “Pokémon Go,” it is an augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic that allows players to “catch” Pokemon nearby.

After users found the location, Pokémon player Pinknose took over the gym at WBC leaving a pink Clefairy named “Loveislove” as a guard.

Recognizing the user’s decision to nickname the character using the phrase commonly associated with the LGBT community, WBC retaliated by co-opting the Pokémon Jigglypuff in a message. The WBC’s Twitter account posted a Vine yesterday depicting Jigglypuff holding a “repent or perish” sign with the phrase “Pokéemon go and sin no more” above.

Since then, WBC has sent out a number of posts using different Pokémon as their spokesmen. The church has even declared “Pokémon Go”-war against the user Pinknose and appears to be getting ready to challenge the Clefairy with its own Pokémon.

Just to put these events into perspective, remember folks — it’s been less than a week since the game came out.
