Slapping Cheese On Pokémon Fire Starters refers to jokes about the designs of recent fire-type Pokémon available to the player at the beginning of the game, particularly the designs of Scorbunny from Pokémon Sword and Shield and Fuecoco from Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, both of which have a yellow square reminiscent of a Kraft Singles cheese slice featured prominently in their design. Memes noting this peculiarity appeared online in late February 2022 following the reveal of Scarlet and Violet.


On February 27th, 2022, The Pokémon Company surprised fans by revealing Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, showing the three starter Pokémon at the end of the trailer (shown below).

The red Pokémon Fuecoco was assumed to be a fire Pokémon, which are traditionally available at the start of all Pokémon games. User @poooptato[2] was the first Twitter user to note that the yellow patch on its design resembled a Kraft Single. Later that day, user Sioteru[3] noted that Scorbunny also featured a yellow patch resembling a Kraft American cheese slice, gaining over 60 retweets and 220 likes (shown below).

Later on February 27th, 2022, Twitter user @shedua[5] posted comparisons between Scorbunny and Fuecoco, circling the areas of their design with similar yellow patches, writing, "who keeps slapping kraft cheese on them! !!!"
