New Pokémon bears striking resemblance to Donald Trump

The latest trailer for Nintendo’s upcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon video games Nintendo is causing unexpected political chatter: is a new Pokémon designed to look like Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump?

Gumshoos, a mongoose with distressing, Trump-ish slicked-back hair, made his debut today and triggered social media snickering.

Pokémon Sun and Moon is set in a Hawaii-like region known as Alola.

In case the actual game interests you, there were 13 other new Pokemon forms revealed in the trailer. Sun and Moon will be released separately on Nintendo’s November 18 for their handheld 3DS system.
