There’s a new trailer out for Pokémon Sun and Moon, and it’s all about the franchise’s latest celestially themed legendaries, Solgaleo and Lunala. But that’s not what the real die hard Poké-fans give a shit about. No, they’re only here for one thing: Professor Kukui, the games’ bafflingly stud-ly new mentor.
Apparently misunderstanding the basic protective purpose of a lab coat, he’s instead mainly using it to highlight his rippling abs and low-slung pants. Professor Oak he ain’t.

In the mere 24 hours since Nintendo unveiled the trailer, the internet has already been flooded with fan art and cosplay, while the Pokémon fandom has apparently been divided into those who are thirsty for Kukui, those lusting after his predecessor Professor Sycamore, and those who don’t give a shit about any of this and just want to nerd out over stats like how much Solgaleo weighs (507.1 lbs exactly, fact fans).
