I'll be honest, aside from joking about its name, I'm not really crazy about Lechonk. I'll wait and see if it gets a good evolution or not, but until that happens, probably a no for me. That goes for Smoliv, too. It's just kind of a different Budew or Petilil, not too interesting to me, at least for now. The added Normal type is kinda cool, I guess. Sets it apart from the myriad of Grass/Poisons and pure Grasses. Again, I'll wait for a potential evolution, if any. (Kinda weird though, how both of their names incorporate somewhat recent slang/meme lingo.)

They are both Normal types, but Smoliv is also a Grass type. If we want type diversity, Smoliv would be the better pick. Especially when I need to counter my Fuecoco's weakness to Water.

Smol looks a bit bland to me but I will probably pick it anyways since I feel like it's evos will go down the Roserade route

Smoliv all the way. I do like Lechonk, I mean it's hard not to with that name. Smoliv has it all though. It has a cute name and a cute design. Plus I've always loved the Pokemon whose designs or personalities just scream anxiety. Sobble, Whismur, Azurill, they're all great. Smoliv fits right in.

Too cutesy, both. It is Pokemon not Kawaii Mon. If you want Kawaii, make another game about Kawaii monsters. Give me scary stuff like Grimmsnarl. Galar did it right

Smoliv might have some sort of flower evo but I don't imagine Lechonk turning into much other than an even fatter pig or a ganon cosplayer, so smol.

They always show the cutesy Pokemon first

Their Evolutions will likely be much less cutesy

If it does, then I might express interest in getting it, since I think Roserade is one of the best Grass types.

That’s easy: Lechonk! And it’s not the name, but rather the fact that it’s fat is actually pure muscle. Hopefully the evolution somehow builds upon the flavor text.

I like Smoliv. Smoliv is just a 'lil guy who goes AAAA and is very stressed, just like me.
