People are really sexualizing Alcremie, the new Pokémon made of cream

'I'm sorry Alcremie. You will not survive on the internet at all.'

As part of its latest trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Shield, Nintendo introduced a brand new Pokémon that folks are loving for its sweet, delicious, creamy pureness, among other things.

Alcremie, the Fairy-type and cream-based Pokémon, has already taken social media by storm. Yes, even more so than the gym leader sending foot fetishists into a tizzy.

According to Nintendo, Alcremie produces whipped cream that chefs in the Pokémon universe can use to make delicious dessert dishes. How good her cream tastes depends on her mood. Make her happy, and it tastes better. If attacked, Alcremie hurls her cream at opponents to blind or distract them. 

Pokémon Sword and Shield is introducing a new mechanic, called “Gigantamax,” which turns Pokémon into massive versions of themselves. Alcremie herself transforms from the dainty cream puff she normally is into a towering multi-layer cake that stands at 95.5 feet tall.

“The cream pouring out of its body hardens upon impact—the stronger the impact, the harder it becomes,” Nintendo stated. “Additionally, the giant ‘Berry’ decorations on Alcremie’s body are as hard as diamonds, and it’s said that most attacks won’t even be able to leave a scratch. Alcremie will launch high-calorie cream missiles around itself to attack its opponents.”

OK, then.

Considering how Alcremie is the perfect blend of cute and weird, of course, the internet has reacted with every possible take on the new Pokémon. Some question the new reality that a Pokémon like Alcremie introduces into the Pokémon universe.

Of course, you knew where this was eventually going to go. Nothing can stay pure on the internet, not even my beloved Alcremie.

Let’s try to keep Alcremie pure, people. Here are a few cute pieces of fan art that celebrate just how adorable this sweet creature is.

I particularly love this one that imagines Alcremie has Eevee-style evolutions.

Here’s Alcremie with other sweets-themed Pokémon.
