pokemon announces new gym leader for Scarlet and Violet
The Pokémon Company has announced another gym leader to be featured in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Iono is the new Electric type gym leader, based in the Pandea region and described as an influencer and streamer. Unlike other announcements from gym leaders, Iono’s announcement video let her talk directly to the players, like a true content creator. Fans were immediately charmed by this gym leader, with even the official Cult of the Lamb Twitter account predicts she may be a V-tuber.
The last time fans were so enamored with a gym leader was in 2019 when Galar’s Water-type gym leader, Nessa, was announced for Pokémon Sword and Shield. To face Ioni, you can find her in Levinia City.
More information has been released about Yu-Gi-oh! death of the creator
The US military has released more details about: Yu-Gi-Oh!’s manga creator Kazuki Takahashi’s death.
The manga artist died in what was believed to be a shark attack in July 2022, and was found dead just offshore. But according to a report by Stars and Stripes, the US military saw Takahashi before his death and said he was trying to save lives. US Army Major Robert Bourgeau said he was unaware Takahashi was in the ocean as he tried to save three people from a tidal wave.
Bourgeau was credited for the rescue, but the dive instructor claimed that Takahashi was the real hero of this story because “he died trying to save someone else.”
US Safety Commission has something to say about chainsaw man
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has something to say about chainsaw man after the show recently premiered on Crunchyroll.
In a series of tweets that eventually became a PSA about chainsaw use and safety, the USCPSC urged people not to try to disfigure their bodies for the sake of cosplay and imitation. Needless to say, fans weren’t really expecting an official government organization to speak out about the new anime series.
Episode one of chainsaw man is now available to stream on Crunchyroll.
Official anime themed photo spots have been set up across America
