This new Pokémon gym leader is bringing out everyone’s inner foot fetishist

Leave it to foot fetishists to find not only their new muse in a Pokémon gym leader’s toes, but to do it on a day when Twitter is also freaking out about a new Pokémon creature based on spewing delicious cream.

The newest trailer for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield shows off a variety of creatures and new gym leaders that players will be facing off against, including Bea. She’s a fighting-type Pokémon gym leader that wears an MMA-like outfit and, you guessed it, no footwear whatsoever.

According to Pokémon’s official Twitter account, Bea is a champion martial artist in the new game’s Galar Region, and she’s known for being incredibly stoic and icy. So not only do we have a character with no footwear, but she clearly isn’t above stomping on those foot fetishists who’ve taken notice. Here’s what the internet has been saying about Bea.



Here we have someone far more concerned about how attractive Bea’s feet instead of how Pokédex’s (the library all your Pokémon are kept in) are going to be segmented, which has caused quite a stir in the Pokémon community.


Then you have the folks who already know where all this is going.


Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield arrives on November 15 for Nintendo Switch.
