According to Heavy, Twitter users immediately noticed the similarities. It’s also worth mentioning the game takes place in the “Alola” region, giving users the ability to make many jokes involving Trump’s campaign slogan.

No one knows if Gumshoos is actually meant to look like Trump. Maybe by the time the game comes out on Nov. 18, The Pokemon Company will have shed some light on the matter.]]
