Pokémon Just Gave Us ‘Leather Daddy’ Machamp & the Gays Are Frothing
Folsom, here we come!
The gay jokes haven't stopped coming since the latest update to Nintendo Switch game Pokémon Unite.
The multiplayer online battle arena video game lets players choose a pokémon for a ten-minute team brawl against other users around the world. Machamp, alongside dozens of others, has been a playable character since the game's release last summer but Nintendo just dropped a new skin for the muscle queen that has the gays in a frenzy.
\u201cSerebii Update: Two new Holowear have been added to Pok\u00e9mon UNITE: Rune Style Lucario as Premium Holowear, and Punk Style Machamp.\n\nDetails @ https://t.co/gDbXkHSvkT\u201d— Serebii.net (@Serebii.net) 1647561647
What they call "Punk Style", the gays are screaming "DADDY."

\u201cFinally, Pok\u00e9mon representation for the LGBT leather community\u201d— Scott Free (@Scott Free) 1647613803
While Pokémon is free to download and play, Machamp's skin is not. Fans love the design but most aren't willing to fork over the very real dollars for the Aeos Gems required to purchase the skin.
Still, we can appreciate his new status as a Leather Daddy icon.
