There’s a new Pokémon in town and it looks a lot like KISS!
The famous Japanese show just added a bunch of new characters but one in particular stands out. The new character has what appears to be KISS’s signature white and black makeup and a long tongue in all three of its evolving forms.
I can not believe there’s now a Pokemon based on Gene Simmons. #PokemonSwordandShield pic.twitter.com/svRUwRE55v

? New Pokémon Discovered! ?
Obstagoon, which evolves from Galarian Linoone, is an example of a Pokémon that can only evolve from a Galarian form. https://t.co/XZdFdRtCFH pic.twitter.com/oOaCicS1qn

Gene Simmons took notice and according to Newsweek, he said, “Pokémon has been a part of our household for decades, ever since our kids first discovered them. And to see Pokémon pay homage to KISS, is flattering.”
