“As a result of its dining habits, it has come to radiate an aroma resembling herbs that Bug-type Pokémon dislike. If attacked by an opponent and startled, it will charge forward in a panic. It may appear fat at first glance, but in reality, the Pokémon’s body is mostly muscle built by constantly walking around in search of food,”, According to the Pokémon company itself.

Despite the hype of the newly added Pokemon, a user pointed out that Lechonk might not be as useful a Pokemon for battle. Possibly, Lechonk would spend its entire life in the storage system, or dropped off at daycare, or on rare occasions, placed on the team to grow and evolve via EXP Share with a stronger Pokémon to do all the fighting.
CONCLUSION: TO CATCH
It doesn’t matter if you’re more of a “collection” or “fight” type of Pokemon player; you absolutely need to capture Lechonk. You should consider adding Lechonk to your pokedex if you haven’t already. The game can be enjoyed in a variety of ways beyond just playing it.
