Fans Discover Seemingly KISS-Inspired Pokémon


The Pokémon Company has released a new Pokémon seemingly inspired by KISS member Gene Simmons.

The new Pokémon, called Obstagoon, is a regional-specific final evolved form of Zigzagoon. It looks similar to Simmons, sharing the trademark black-and-white stage makeup as well as his angry, tongue-sticking-out looks.

Simmons is pleased with the new Pokémon and took the news very well.

"Pokémon has been part of our household for decades, ever since our kids first discovered them," he said in a statement to Newsweek. "To see Pokémon pay homage to KISS is flattering."

The Pokémon Company introduced Obstagoon as one of the new species featuring in the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games for the Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Sword and Shield will be released worldwide on November 15.
