Fans are going crazy for Bellibolt

On October 14, the official account of Pokémon on YouTube launched two new videos. The first one featured Scarlet and the second one, Violet. Both of these are the most recent entries in the games of the franchise. But before this, a video was released on Wednesday, featuring Lono. Lono is the electric-type leader of Levincia Gym. She asked viewers to identify her companion Pokémon. The one released on Friday was a follow-up to this video.

In the Friday video, Lono explains that Bellibolt is a frog-like Pokémon of the electric type and it is her companion.

Bellibolt seems to have been modeled by a frog, maybe the Cuyaba dwarf frog, which has enormous “false eyes” on its back and can secrete poison when attacked. Additionally, its fake eyes mimic the tympanum in frogs and toads. Using frog legs in attempts to study galvanism may have inspired the relationship between frogs and electricity. Possible inspiration for Bellibolt’s belly-button dynamo came from a plasma globe. Additionally, Bellibolt looks a lot like a common Japanese mascot or a plush toy.

Fans have gone mad behind this cute new member.

Some fans even introduced their own version of Bellibolt.

Well, this new Pokémon has sure gained a huge fanbase. Tell us in the comments what you think about it.
