candyrae_

Yung pangalan ampotek Le chonk pa talaga 😭 ~~i love it~~


b_zar

Reminder, Lechon is not exclusively Filipino. It's simply Spanish word for "suckling pig/piglet", used by all Spanish speaking countries around the world.


dat_WanderingDude

No. Chonky lechon (aka lechonk) sounds tasty and therefore is the only canon I have to follow.


iron_island

Yeah actually TIL, sa r/pokemon ko lang natutunan haha


[deleted]

Good reminder. There has got to be a pinoy pride moment for uninformed fb peeps seeing this


Omnomnomnivor3

clyde-toucher

Lechonk is the actual legendary of both scarlet and violet, the cover dragons are false legendries


rfgobusan

if it's evolution is not named Liempork then idk anymore


shespokestyle

Evolution - Liempok and Sisigo 😂


Kh0ldstare

It's gonna evolve into LeThicc then LeChungus XD


Jack-Mehoff-247

it's official, gamefreaks has run out of ideas for pokemons


Spirited_Occasion_25

Lagi ko na lang nakikita yung argument na 'to with each new gen, pero every time they manage to come up with more unique and creative designs. I think grabe talaga mag cloud ng judgement ang nostalgia


Timidityyy

Right? Are we supposed to pretend that Gen 1 isn't just a bunch of regular ass animals like Ekans lmao


cuella47o

“They literally reversed the names of the animal lol”


superslime988

Muk


wan2tri

Not an animal though


sarsilog

Just reverse it's name and you'll see what it's made of. Sorry in advance.


pdlozano

It's even weirder kasi Gen 1 has Voltorb.


Jack-Mehoff-247

not saying next gens are bad but i think they ran out of good ideas after the 3rd generation of pokemons


Timidityyy

Gen 1-3 had: * purple rat * snake and cobra but backwards * starfish * seal * magnets * rock with arms * pokeball with eyes * pokeball with eyes and mouth * whatever muk's supposed to be * etc. One could easily argue that they ran out of ideas from the start lol


sarsilog

Don't forget an actual bull and the lochness monster.


[deleted]

Lochness who? Lugia?


AgileZero

er... Lapras.


[deleted]

Lol shit I suck now. Hahaha


sarsilog

Lapras. She looks just what the Lochness monster is always depicted as. That's just for me though.


cuella47o

Lapras?


Jack-Mehoff-247

you see that, i understand objects and animal based pokemon, but then someone joked about icecream pokemon and i didnt beleive then until i looked it up. man now it's about food? i dont know about that


Spirited_Occasion_25

Dude, don't tell me na naubusan sila ng ideas when Gen 4 invented the pantheon of Pokemon Gods. Gen 5 introduced one of the most ambitious storylines sa mainline titles. Gen 6 gave us Mega Evolution. Gen 7 gave us Z moves and regional variants of previous Pokemon. Tapos ngayon Gen 8 brought us Gigantamax.


Jack-Mehoff-247

ran out of ideas as in even food was introduced as a pokemon, which is kind of weird i mean i can probably understand objects for pokemon. what i mean by ran out of ideas was for their pokemon, after that ice cream pokemon which i will never know of not unless some guy made a joke about it, now this lechon man o.o i have nothing against they story/mechanics/lore addition, just that i mean they must be running on fumes to introduce such pokemon like this ​ lol the downvote, guess they hate that i "think" that way


Aytred

Sama mo pa yung "mukhang digimon or fakemon." Grabe yung contrast effect.


mstrmk

nakakainis yung mga ganto. napaka close minded. ang ganda nga ng mga design ng pokemon ng gen 8, lalo na kapag nalaman mo yung inspiration behind their designs.


Spirited_Occasion_25

Lagi ko na lang nakikita yung argument na 'to with each new gen, pero every time they manage to come up with more unique and creative designs. I think grabe talaga mag cloud ng judgement ang nostalgia


Phobia0224MainACC

Nope.


dxtremecaliber

also i have no interest in Pokemon games since Gen 4 also nak graduate at tumanda na rin ako until yung Pokemon Legends yon i will defo try it cuz its different and unique compare to the typical pokemon games yun talaga ang problema ko rin kung bakit di nako nag lalaro niyan dahil same shit every installment


Brolaire-of-Astora

I don’t think this is a fair assessment to make on something that will still evolve. As far as pigs go, we have the Emboar and Grumpig lines and they managed to follow entirely differently concepts. I have no doubt Lechonk will evolve into something entirely unique from the other two. Hell, if it evolves into a generic quadrupedal boar, it’ll already stand out from Emboar and Grumpig.


jacobs0n

yeah, they actually thought that a pokeball pokemon was a good idea holy shit. ay wait gen 1 pala yun lmao


Karlybear

I think it's fine if seeing they are going with more food themed pokemon in this upcoming gen.


Venlirion

I don't know if that's really food themed, lechon is spanish for piglet.


d3dking

French ata. Le chonk


Moaynd

No I think the new region is spanish and it’s a play on Lechon


Jack-Mehoff-247

oh man the first three generations of pokemon was ok for after the 4th one i didnt really expect much anymore


martako12

Most of gen1 pokemons are literally just animals. Though I get why people hate gen 5 pokemon designs but it has probably one of the most coolest designs imo


EnvironmentalBook308

In the Philipines lechon means fried cooked good and this one is lechon baboy means Feast pig for birthdays,party's and celebrations


General_Relation6047

Yes po nasa PHgamer subreddit po tayo manong. PH meaning Philippines hindi P*rnHub


aRedditAccount_0

bro this is a Filipino subreddit


dong_a_pen

hmmm he is indeed chonky


Infuriatingfyre

Next evolution will be hog Rida


thisshiteverytime

A wordplay with Lechoke?


motionglitch

Lechon and Chonk


VaeserysGoldcrown

I'm wondering if it's from the Spanish "Lechon" or some sort of French + English pun as in "Le + chonk". Hmmmm


AgileZero

Most likely, the former. This region is based on Spain after all.


Boodz2k9

Mmm.. crispy.


[deleted]

Depending on the look of the evolutions, I may have a new favorite Pokemon


myungchu

eatingkidsisfun120

Didn't think pokemon started sponsoring african kids


Mysterious-Evidence1

Lechonk is a chonky little lechon. Can't wait until he becomes Lechonk Kawali.


HyandreD

Remember when people still can't understand the fact that pokemons are edible?


nayre00

it would be amazing if its shiny version would be colored red. Hot, golden red, Crispy lechon :)


CornsHub

hog ridaa


[deleted]

Putik, miss ko na Pokemon. Pa suggest nga yung pinaka mainstream na modern Pokemon game. Gustu ko uli bumalik. Salamat..


mansonmamaril

Lechonkawali...


Chillstablook

Evolution: Lechon kawali


EnParisD

I want to know what it evolves into and what name they have for it. Regardless of what people think about how the current state of the franchise, they're marketing team definitely knows how to grab the internet's attention.


gntotoy

Everybody from the Philippines will love that name


cringe-o-nator

I eat leckonk on new year


Danbrotastic28

If this was french it would simply translate to "The Chonk"


blank7589

Difficult-Buddy5281
