Another trailer for the upcoming ‘Pokémon Sword and Shield’ dropped on June 5, and fans of the series are already falling in love with the game’s colorful cast of characters – with their focus falling on one brand-new Pokémon, in particular.

Wooloo is a new addition to the Pokémon universe, native to the Galar Region. Classified as a “Sheep Pokémon” on Sword and Shield’s official website, it has an “extremely fluffy body” and is a “friendly Pokémon that craves stability.”

While the general premise of the Pokémon series requires players to pit their pocket monsters against one another in battle, Wooloo dislikes conflict, and will “simply roll away” to avoid fighting any enemies.

NintendoWooloo is one of the latest additions to the Pokémon universe, being another “sheep” Pokémon to go alongside the likes of Mareep.

Its charming personality aside, fans are falling in love with the Pokémon for more than its pacifist practices: Wooloo is an exceptionally adorable addition to the games, with a design that foreshadows ample merchandise and plush toys in the future.

Pokémon fanatics are raving about Wooloo’s cuteness across social media, with even the likes of legendary cosplayer Jessica Nigri commenting on the matter via Twitter with a witty meme to describe the craze.

Nigri herself is known for her risque Pokémon cosplay, having already created humanoid renditions of Sword and Shield starters Scorbunny and Grookey: with Wooloo already being hugely popular, fans might see her pull off another Pokémon-themed costume in the near future.

Fan artists have likewise had a field day with the new addition, with many creating their own takes on the Sheep Pokémon in their respective styles.

Wooloo has likewise been paired with another, classic wool Pokémon in the series, Mareep, who made its debut in the Gold and Silver games. It makes sense that these two would be a popular pairing with fan artists, who have drawn ample mockups of the two hanging out and being bffs.

The June 5 Pokémon Direct revealed a slew of other details about Sword and Shield, including the “Dynamax” mechanic that allows Pokémon to grow to a huge size (Godzilla, who?).

Two legendaries were also revealed in the trailer, likely the reason for Sword and Shield’s namesake, due to their designs.

Pokémon Sword and Shield is slated for release on November 15, 2019.

After TikTok star Ava Louise appeared to publicly shoot her shot with Bryce Hall over on Instagram, his girlfriend Addison Rae made sure to mark her territory with some loved-up snaps.

TikToker Ava Louise has been making waves on social media today after a series of bizarre posts, with several of them appearing to be aimed at Sway House member and fellow TikTok star Bryce Hall.

Being sure to tag Bryce Hall, Ava Louise appeared to share a series of sexually explicit messages directed towards the influencer, telling Hall that she “wanted to have sex” with him, “didn’t care” that he had a girlfriend and even hinting that she DM’d him explicit material from her OnlyFans account.

It appears that Addison Rae got wind of the flirty posts, and while she didn’t comment on the situation directly, she jokingly posted a photo of herself hugging a grinning Hall while she pouted. Seemingly making sure Ava knew where Hall stood, she captioned the photo as “mine.” As well as commenting on Rae’s photo affirming that she’s his “baby forever”, Hall posted a photo of the two of his own around the same time.

However, even this didn’t seem to deter Ava, as she commented on Rae’s post offering to “share” Hall, remarking that she thinks Addison is “hot” too.

With drama page TikTok Room updating fans on the situation, it didn’t take long for celebrity columnist Perez Hilton to weigh in on the situation, as he suggested that Ava Louise was “a better fit” for Hall than Rae was.

This in turn attracted the attention of Bryce Hall’s mom, Leah Hall, who was quick to call out Hilton for his comment by asking him: “Why would you say that?”.

Given the bizarre nature of the messages Ava was sharing, fans began to suspect that her Instagram account had been hacked. As well as posting about Bryce Hall, the account also referred to other TikTok stars like Tony Lopez and Dixie D’Amelio.

As well as joking that Tony Lopez had “blocked her because she was over the age of consent,” Ava also appeared to proposition Dixie D’Amelio. Tagging D’Amelio in her Instagram story, Ava said that she knew Dixie “played for the other team” and made an explicit proposition to her.

While Ava appeared to rebuke claims that she had been hacked – saying in an Instagram comment that she was “not hacked, just h***y” – fans remain unconvinced.
