The days of Professor Sycamore have apparently come and gone (queue the outrage from the loyal fans, of course). Sycamore really got the people going with his long and dark, luscious locks:



It seems that the Pokemon Game Freak developers decided to further up the ante, and thus introduced Sun and Moon's very shirtless Professor Kukui:

Some might argue the dude's shirtless cause it's Hawaii, and the humidity's probably through the roof, but I'd have you refer to the present lab coat...Annd now the reactions:

Pokémon GO! Has Been out Less than a Month, and It's Already Inspired Dating Apps Like These

In less than a month Pokémon GO! has taken this planet by storm. Look around you, and you're apt to see someone with a fixed gaze on their phones, swiping upwards aggressively, scowling at their screens, trying to catch 'em all.


It's insane how big this game is. Pokémon GO! is more popular than Tinder right now, and was more popular than porn for a brief bit of time as well. Plus Pokémon GO! is tracking more than 21 million daily active users, so that's pretty damn chill...

Next you've got Litten. A fire cat Pokémon that can attack with, wait, wait for it, flaming hairballs!


Lastly, you have Popplio, the Sea Lion Pokémon.
