Sobble, the newest Pokemon, is also the best sports meme


On National Pokemon Day, Nintendo revealed a set of new lovable starter characters, and the best one is clearly Sobble. Sorry, Scorbunny and Grookey.

The blue tadpole-esque, misery-absorbed blob is cute and relatable like no other. If you think Mudkips are better, well, you’re wrong. Sobble’s mouth droops as its eyes gaze unsustainably wide in a look of sheer horror. Or awe?

Either way Sobble is perfect, and SB Nation is Team Sobble.

We have a few reasons why.

We love Sobble, the most 2019 of all Pokemon.
