Professor Sada and Professor Turo are the "professor" characters for the upcoming 2022 video games Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, respectively. After the pair debuted in the trailer for the games on June 1st, many online found them very attractive, leading to memes and fan art about the pair either individually or as a duo. Professor Turo, in particular, drew many comparisons to the Gigachad meme.


On June 1st, 2022, Pokémon released the second trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet,[1] introducing each game's respective Pokémon professor character, Professors Sada and Turo (seen below). Onlookers noticed the games seemed to have a past or future theme, thus Professor Sada has an ancient, "caveman" aesthetic and Turo seems to be a futuristic scientist. Some have also noted that "Sada" and "Turo" may be plays on the Spanish words for "Past" and "Future," "Pasado" and "Futuro."[6]

Commentary on the pair's attractiveness and overall looks started immediately after the two appeared. The trailer was released at 9 a.m. EST on June 1st. By 9:03 a.m., Twitter user @maxisoffline had posted a picture (seen below) of Professor Turo and Professor Sada from the trailer, celebrating the looks of the two characters, which received over 3,600 likes and 574 retweets within a day.[2]

Professor Turo

In the hours following the trailer memes celebrating and thirsting over Professor Turo were shared on Twitter and other platforms. Fan art about the character, much of it tinged with heavy eroticism, emerged throughout the day. For example, on June 1st, 2022, Twitter user @mochiiros[5] posted semi-nude fan art of Turo, gaining over 860 retweets and 5,600 likes in 24 hours (shown below).

Others joked that Turo resembled the meme character Gigachad due to the similarity in their jawline, hair style and facial hair. For example, Twitter user @HenkukuNii posted two pictures on June 1st, one of Professor Turo and another of Gigachad, proposing that the two were very similar (shown below).[3]

Also on June 1st, Twitter user @end_spire drew a comparison between Professor Turo and men who are interested in cryptocurrencies and NFTs, arguing that the Pokémon character's vibe matched theirs (shown below).[4] Several other posters followed this interpretation of Professor Turo.
