The term “cheugy” was popularized on TikTok, it was usually to describe the opposite of something trendy. It applies primarily to fashion but it can also be used when talking about the usage of slang and online behavior. This term is used mostly by younger people but over time, older generations have adopted the term. Pokemon’s main demographic is young kids, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that they have added “cheugy” to Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

In the conversation with Director Clavell, players will have three options:

  1. “Something super cool”
  2. “Being outdated and uncool”
  3. “It’s a really chewy gumball”

The correct answer is number two, “being outdated and uncool”. Pick the correct answer and you might get a reward, or not. There are aspects of the game that seem to be up in the air.

Do Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have different professors?
