KISS’ Gene Simmons comments on apparent look-alike Pokémon, Obstagoon

by Daniel VuckovicAugust 9, 2019

During this week’s information burst on Pokémon Sword and Shield three new Pokémon were revealed. Two of them were regional variants of Zigzagoon and Linoone, the third a new Pokémon – Obstagoon, a new regional evolution and they apparently look like KISS.

People think they look like the rock band KISS so much, that even Gene Simmons, the leader singer of the legendary band has been asked to comment on it.

Speaking to Newsweek he had nothing but good things to say;

“Pokémon has been a part of our household for decades, ever since our kids first discovered them, And to see Pokémon pay homage to KISS, is flattering.”

Did you see KISS, perhaps punk rockers from the 80s? Or just another new Pokémon? Let us know in the comments.

    Yeah not a smart move, that guy sued people like it was going out of fashion. Expect him to launch a suit for $$ in the future.

      I agree. Gene Simmons trademarked the term “OJ” just so he could sue people haha I’d be surprised if a guy whose career is built off of his image didn’t seek some form of litigation. However, I hope his comments are genuine.
