Sorry, Sobble. Pok¨¦mon Sword and Shield are Wooloo¡¯s games now. The first new Galar region Pok¨¦mon to be unveiled during today¡¯s Pok¨¦mon Direct presentation, Wooloo is perfect in every way and has quickly and understandably established a fan base willing to die for the Sheep Pok¨¦mon.
Here are two reasons why people have fallen in love with Wooloo, a very good Pok¨¦mon:
One, Wooloo is described as having an ¡°extremely fluffy body,¡± giving the Pok¨¦mon a round shape. People love round animals.
Two, Wooloo is also described as a ¡°friendly Pok¨¦mon that craves stability,¡± which we can all relate to. ¡°They dislike conflict, and if they need to escape from enemies, they will simply roll away,¡± the official Pok¨¦mon website explains.
What¡¯s not to like?
The instantaneous acceptance of Wooloo is evident by the flood of fan art rolling in for the rolling Pok¨¦mon. (Technically, it¡¯s the Sheep Pok¨¦mon, even though Mareep ¡ª the Wool Pok¨¦mon ¡ª exists.)
Now, a collection of Wooloo fan art:

Some artists have already addressed possible competition between Mareep and Wooloo ¡ª but it turns out they¡¯re best friends! Possibly even ... gal pals!

In what is surely not a coincidence, the reveal of Wooloo coincides with Pride Month.

Wooloo¡¯s fur is where all the small Pok¨¦mon go to sleep pic.twitter.com/MCPlzUotLu
But even without that highly prized fur, Wooloo is still extremely good:
