Even though Nintendo should have stopped announcing new Pokémon after the sad, dismal failure that was Popplio, it seems they’re determined to lower the bar even more. As of today, there’s a Pokémon that looks like Republican presidential candidate and wrinkly-smirk emoji Donald Trump.
Meet Yungoos, a loitering-type Pokémon that, like The Donald, is basically a weasel in a hairpiece. Also like Trump, Yungoos has a strong jaw and tiny little hands. Sad!

Someone in Twitch chat said Yungoos looks like Donald Trump but he LITERALLY DOES. pic.twitter.com/dPuStqv8Yz

Really hope that Yungoos will be able to learn Trump Card, tho.

We’ll probably never learn what Trump himself thinks of Yungoos, because although he’s happy to offer strong opinions on every subject from immigration to Diet Coke to the RPatz-KStew breakup, he refuses to answer America’s burning questions about Pocket Monsters.
Can we be expected to elect a leader who doesn’t have the guts to openly declare that America can catch ’em all?
Only 146 more days left in this nightmarish horse race.
