Pokemon Sword And Shield was just released, introducing a number of new Pokemon to the franchise. Although the games have only been out for a few days, one of these new faces seems well on its way to becoming the region’s fan favorite.
This Pokemon is none other than Snom, a Ice/Bug type Pokemon that resembles a small grub/caterpillar. It is the first ever Ice/Bug type in the game, and evolves into a moth Pokemon called Frosmoth.
Galar Fun Fact #21:
Snom and its evolution Frosmoth are the first Ice/Bug type combo in the game series so far.

From even before the game’s launch, fans quickly took a shine to its unique typing, cutesy name, and absolutely adorable design. When the Pokemon’s existence was first leaked, Snom quickly became the topic of its own subreddit r/snom, which is now home to numerous posts and memes dedicated to it.
Now that the games have been released, Snom has also received a great deal of attention on Twitter. Check out some of the posts made by fans below:
