Spoiler:


Iono was officially revealed in an official Pokémon YouTube upload! She's an electric type gym leader and streamer, and appears to be based on a v-tuber. What do you guys think - cute or no?

Oh man! I had high hopes for her, but her model looks off-putting instead of cute. If they had shown her official artwork alongside the video, I'd be singing a different tune.

The Magnemite accessories are a nice touch, though. Also, is it me or does she slightly resemble Serra, the Ice-type Gym Leader from Pokémon Reborn? I mean... she looks even more like Serra's child than her in-game son Bennett! Considering that one of the first trailer showed a Fighting-type specialist that looks like an older Victoria from that game... it's suspicious.

She was cute until I saw the razor teeth. I kinda like the oversized jacket look and her cotton candy hair. It's just the teeth that look ridiculous.

I wonder if they will release a trailer in other regions. She's your typical cutesy hyper anime character, but I'm curious how that translates over to other audiences.

I am the opposite. I love her razor teeth, the rest of her design is meh 😑

The whole trailer as far as I'm concerned was “heres a new gym leader ok bye”. disappointed
I feel like people aren't seeing exactly what this trailer likely is. For the last two months, we have been getting teasers of a new pokemon and then within the week or the week after, they reveal a new pokemon. They have done this for two months and they did it with Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark.

They set this trailer up to be exactly like that, but in a different form of a Vtuber given us hints and fact about a new pokemon. She says guess before my next stream which likely means Friday or sometime next week.

The only mistake there was is the fact that they announced it a day before. If there hadn't been a single announcement, I don't think people would have mind and would expect the reveal at a later date.

I am assuming the reveal won't happen until maybe next week or so. It'd be alright if they did announce it on Friday just to get this out of the way. We're not TOO far from launch day.

I just wanna cut the excess sleeves off of her shirt, or drag her to a clothing store for something that actually fits.
It just makes her look as if she's wearing her parents shirt/sweater. Dunno what age she's supposed to be, but it ain't helping her.

I like the magnemite accessories, but that's about it.

i like fanged bokuto girls so I'm winning
Although, she's definitely either an avatar for a v-tuber, or just in costume tbh. I don't doubt Pokemon would hop on the vtuber train even if she's in a video game world.

(I don't even like vtubers btw).

I am wondering if she is an avatar for a vtuber too, actually. I dunno though, guess we will see. Also yeah, I am not shocked to see them hop on the vtuber train. I like vtubers, but just find a lot of it is just super hit or miss? Like I enjoy ASMR vtubers a bit more than gaming ones.

It is very possible she is just the Avatar and not a real person. Since it does seem like she is a Vtuber and following a very normal trope for the vtubers. I doubt we will actually see what she looks like if that is the case. But I can totally see them pulling it off. Especially since they are making it seem, and have been for a while, like the idols from Splatoon Games are real and holding concerts for them. I have a feeling we might even see a squid pokemon at some point given the crossover for the two games next month.

It has been confirmed that they are revealing her pokemon tomorrow.

Fanged teeth are a type of beauty standard in Japan but to me it looks weird on her model, just too mechanical and a bit creepy! It would be cool if this is just her avatar and she looks totally different. Overall I don’t mind her design. At least it’s memorable! But nothing beats Grusha <33

Excited for electric frog!
I forget how emotions dance when they aren't inside of me
I forget how the sun feels when she isn't around me
And my dreams become sweeter when something is missing
I'm in love with the hunt itself
It makes me feel alive
