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.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
