Spring has sprung, and you know what that means! Bugs. Lots and lots of bugs, both in-game and out. And a new one might be joining the list of Pokemon trainers can catch in Pokemon GO.
Cutiefly May Be Making Its Debut in Pokemon Go
On March 27, 2023, Pokemon GO India and Pokemon GO Korea made a tweet displaying a dark silhouette of a tiny insect with the caption, “This Pokémon might be tiny, but get ready for a big debut! #RisingHeroes”
While the shadowed-out image doesn’t offer much in the way of details, trainers were quick to hone in on key details: it’s a bug and it looks like a fly. And with few Pokemon sharing those characteristics, it’s likely that the identity of the next Pokemon GO debut is Cutiefly, the Bug- and Fairy-Type Pokemon that made its first debut in the Alola Region.

Fairy-Type Pokemon are certainly a force to be reckoned with in the Leagues, but Cutiefly’s dual-typing opens it up to a significant number of weaknesses. In mainline games, Ribombee also lacked bulk, making it a glass cannon. But it’s possible that it might find its niche. Failing that, Cutiefly lives up to its name in that it’s adorable, and it growly only more precious with its evolve form Ribombee, which is literally a bee with a scarf.
Trainers have also theorized that the arrival of Cutiefly may mean there are other Bug Pokemon on the way, with hopes being pinned on the debut of Mega- Heracross. Time will tell, but fingers crossed!
