Newly Announced ‘Pokemon’ Looks Like Donald Trump

In a new trailer for the upcoming release of Pokemon Sun & Moon, the evolution of the previously revealed mongoose Pokemon Yungoos is revealed to be Gumshoos, who looks a lot like American Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Gumshoos’ name is derived from “gumshoe” and “mongoose,” a weasel-like animal. A gumshoe is a slang term for “a person whose job is to find information about someone or something,” according to Merriam-Webster. It is usually used to describe a private detective.

However, Gumshoos’ similarity to Donald Trump is uncanny. It was also revealed in the trailer that it will act like a “boss” in the game that Pokemon trainers have to defeat.

The announcement of this new Pokemon comes as Trump faces backlash over disparaging remarks he made to the parents of Captain Humayun Khan after their speech at the Democratic National Convention.

U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan was killed in Iraq in 2004 when a car blew up after he told his troops to stand back. He took 10 steps forward to check out the suspicious vehicle himself, saving the lives of the soldiers he supervised.

Captain Khan’s heroism was highlighted by Hillary Clinton on July 28 at the Democratic National Convention. His father, Khizr Khan, took the stage with Khan’s mother, Ghazala Khan, and movingly described their son’s sacrifice for the United States.

At one point, Khizr Khan waved a copy of the U.S. Constitution and demanded that Republican nominee Donald Trump honor the sacrifice of his son, who was a Muslim. Khan previously told the Washington Post that he moved to America in the 1970s for “freedom and opportunity” because his native Pakistan was under military rule. Khan has continued criticizing Trump since the Convention, leading to a war of words with the Republican nominee that has earned Trump more controversy.
