Pokémon has become one of the most iconic series ever since it began in 1996. The franchise has become a staple in many gamers' collections, and the community is now anticipating the release of the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet games, due to be released later this year. 

Just yesterday, The Official Pokémon Company announced the new games. In the trailer for the upcoming releases, fans were treated to a first look at the three starter Pokémon for the game. Each Pokémon game starts with your character choosing one of three Pokémon called starters. But the water-type starter in the upcoming Pokémon game is reminding gamers of one particular Disney character.
