About

Galarian Weezing is a Pokémon introduced for the Pokémon Sword and Shield games. The Pokémon is a redesign of Weezing, a Poison-type evolution of Koffing, which has been a part of the series since the first generation of games. In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Weezing will be a Poison/Fairy type, redesigned to have two large smokestacks resembling top hats on its heads and smoke patterns on its face that resemble facial hair.

Origin

On August 7th, 2019, Pokémon YouTube channel released a trailer for Pokémon Sword and Shield. The trailer highlighted the new Pokémon Morpeko, antagonists Team Yell and Marnie, and Galar-specific variants of Pokémon Zigzagoon, Linoone, and Weezing (shown below).



Spread

Twitter users were quick to joke about Weezing's new design. Many Twitter users compared the design to Fairly Oddparents character Doug Dimmadome, owner of the Dimmsdale Dimmadome, who wears a giant hat with a similar appearance to the smokestacks on Weezing's head. Twitter user @ThatMatt_[1] posted a direct comparison, gaining over 900 retweets and 2,900 likes (shown below, left). User @MikeLuckas[2] compared Weezing to Dimmadome and the Spoons Rattling image, gaining over 1,000 retweets and 3,900 likes (shown below, right).

Others felt the design was reminiscent of a bong used for marijuana consumption. User @videodante joked "Smokemon," a portmanteau of "smoking" and "Pokémon" which has generated fan art, "is real" (shown below, left). User @theSirToasty[3] posted a Nobody joke calling the character "Bong Weezing," gaining over 990 retweets and 5,000 likes (shown below, right). Jokes were covered by Heavy[4] and Mashable.[5]

Gamefreak: Releases a Pokemon meant to invoke turn-of-the-century industrial pollution and the titans of industry who profited off them, perfectly fitting in with the British theme of the game.
