Gene Simmons loved the new Kiss-looking Pokémon

Nintendo recently unveiled some new Pokémon that will appear in Shield and Sword, upcoming franchise games due to hit the Nintendo Switch in November. And amidst the new monsters revealed, the design of one in particular drew more attention than the others.


Obstagoon, the final evolution of Galarian Linoon, which in turn is the evolution of Galarian Zigzagoon, has gained prominence because of its familiar look to anyone who recognizes Kiss’s flamboyant outfit.

As soon as it was revealed, the last day 7, Pokémon was associated with the rock band, because of the black and white fur that looks like the makeup tenderized by the band members. And as if that wasn’t enough, he also has that long tongue!

In social networking times, the comparison came to Gene Simmons, bassist and lead singer of the group who, according to Newsweek, loved the alleged tribute.

“Pokémon has been around my house for decades, ever since our kids found out. And seeing Pokémon pay tribute to Kiss is an honor,” said the musician.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
