Fidough is the cutest new Pokémon we want to eat

Image: Game Freak/The Pokémon Company Aw, ’mons you’re just jealous of these yeasty boys Amid a flurry of announcements from Wednesday’s Pokémon Presents showcase, one thing stands out: Fidough, a delicious-looking and adorable new Pokémon coming to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet later this year. Alongside its new ninth-generation Pokémon brethren Smoliv and Lechonk, Fidough is making Pokémon fans both squeal with delight and feel strangely peckish. We both want to protect and eat the new Pokémon. Fidough, the Puppy Pokémon, is a Fairy-type, but if it were competing in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, it might be part of the working group. According to the official Pokémon website, Fidough’s breath contains “useful yeast,” apparently making it quite valuable to bakers in the Paldea region. “Fidough ferments things in its vicinity using the yeast in its breath,” the official Pokémon website’s description of Fidough explains. “Said yeast is useful for cooking, so this Pokémon has been protected by people since long ago.” Meet Fidough, the Puppy Pokemon! This Pokémon has smooth, moist skin with elastic qualities. They intimidate their opponents by puffing up their bodies to appear bigger.❤️ #PokemonScarletViolet pic.twitter.com/XEf1HZDiGY— Pokémon (@Pokemon) August 3, 2022 But Fidough itself also looks and sounds like a bagel just waiting to be cooked. “Fidough’s moist, smooth skin has elastic qualities and is both firm and soft at the same time,” according to its official description. Like every cute, fresh-out-of-the-oven new Pokémon, the community has fallen in love with this yeasty boy. Here’s proof, in the form of a rising number of fan creations filling up social media: Fidough is soo cute is a sweet doggo!!!! #ポケモン #ポケモンSV #Pokemon #PokemonScarletViolet #pokemonsv pic.twitter.com/NogkbDUac6— yami11arts #comissions open - working days (@sextant0yulij) August 3, 2022 Welcome to Fidough patisserie!! #PokemonScarletViolet #PokemonPresents pic.twitter.com/QBhdbCSgSz— Sugar (@Sugahri) August 3, 2022  Moist&Smooth Fidough  pic.twitter.com/OiPysZFw9z— 加藤瑠菜@Latteart☕.◦*.*。 (@RunaPocket) August 3, 2022 fidough is just a lil guy #PokemonPresents pic.twitter.com/Zk0dMlTeoC— oli @ volo & dawn plush and elpis done (@olivinearc) August 3, 2022 Fidough I love you #PokemonScarletViolet #PokemonPresents pic.twitter.com/xPq6jcbgto— ʚ Milah ɞ C*mm*ss*ons Open! ʚ♡ (@MoonMilkii) August 3, 2022 FIDOUGH pic.twitter.com/tIMg50EdnO— Anelien (@cupcakelogic) August 3, 2022 Es un bollo, un pan bimbo#PokemonScarletViolet #Fidough pic.twitter.com/w0HHa1FsuX— 【Ghost Ship】 (@NarumyNatsue) August 3, 2022 I WANT 1000 OF THEM YOUR HONOR....also, consider other bread varieties of Fidough..... #PokemonScarletViolet #ScarletViolet pic.twitter.com/omOAFPsF2g— ㅋKylee (@kyleenim) August 3, 2022 fidough i love you bitch pic.twitter.com/gfW9mlLYZj— Pansear (Fiverr Commissions Open) (@Pansear_Lady) August 3, 2022
