Speculation that Rita from New Pokémon Snap is based on a famous Pokémon

It’s been a while since the release of the long-awaited New Pokémon Snap for Nintendo Switch, the sequel to the Nintendo 64 game. Well, some time after many players have been able to play and complete it, speculation has begun about the appearance of a certain character introduced in this new instalment of the franchise.

Pokémon fandom has been quick to notice that the video game character Rita bears a reasonable resemblance to the sixth-generation dragon-type Pokémon, Goodra. This interesting fact has led fans to wonder if this Pokémon is the trainer’s favourite creature, as something similar has happened before with other characters in the Pokémon anime, such as trainer Tobias from the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl season, who has an undeniable resemblance to the Pokémon Darkrai and has just one in its team.

Here’s an image to show you the resemblance below.
