Pokémon fans are shocked by viral plush that is sweeping the internet


THE Pokémon Company has launched a whole new line of merchandise.

This is to coincide with the Pokémon World Championships which are currently taking place in Yokohama, Japan.

The new Wiglett plush has stirred something in fans.

Players from around the world will compete to win prizes for various different Pokémon games.

This includes Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Pokémon TCG, Pokémon Unite, and Pokémon Go.

There has been a lot of Worlds specific merchandise released for the event, but they are not all available worldwide.

However, there is a lot of new apparel, plushies, and trading cards that have been released coinciding with Pokémon’s largest event.

There is one new plush that has caught Pokémon fans eyes, based on one of the Pokémon new to Paldea.

When it was first announced people noted Wiglett’s ‘suggestive’ look, but after meeting them in game, grew to love them.

However, the new plush has inspired more rude remarks from fans, especially with how it’s posed in promotional images.

The plush that stands over 10” tall has a wire in the centre that allows you to pose Wiglett however you want.

This is because Wiglett is based on a sand eel that emerges from the sand and wriggles around.

Wiglett is known for its standard bending over pose, where it stands high above the ground but bends forward to look at you.

However, the photographer’s decided to stand it completely upright for its promotional image.

The suggestive pose has taken social media by storm, with everyone making fun of our poor Pokémon friend.

Don’t worry though, if you purchase Wiglett you can pose it however you want, so you can save it from embarrassment.
