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.
Along the way, there will be many more never-before-seen Pokémon waiting to be discovered!— Pokémon (@Pokemon) February 27, 2019
They’re waiting for you, Trainers. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be released simultaneously worldwide in late 2019.#PokemonSwordShield ⚔ pic.twitter.com/1AiXNWhGZM
We have a few reasons why.

We love Sobble, the most 2019 of all Pokemon.
