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.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
