Guzma is the leader of the antagonistic group Team Skull in the upcoming 2016 Nintendo 3DS video game Pokémon Sun and Moon.


On August 11th 2016, Nintendo released a trailer on YouTube revealing the villain group Team Skull in Pokémon Sun and Moon, which included a clip of the leader Guzma (shown below). Within three weeks, the video gained over 2.84 million views and 11,300 comments.


That same day, Twitter user @Fightbeast_[8] posted a fan illustration Rick Sanchez from the television series Rick and Morty dressed as Guzma (shown below, left). Shorty after, Twitter user @bubbaguyz[5] posted an emoji spam paragraph written from Guzma's perspective (shown below, right).
