urrg one wrong!!
just because I’m not as good with the newer pokemon
I got one wrong because they misspelled “Gligar” and made me thing it was a SNEAKY TRICK QUESTION and that “Gilgar” actually was a startup.
This assumption of mine was false.
Along the same lines: Web 2.0 or Star Wars Character? (from wayyyy back in the day) and Cheese or Font.
A Japanese art collective called Chim Pom is helping solve Tokyo’s rodent problem by catching the city’s rats, stuffing them, and painting them to look like Pikachu. Sweet dreams, everybody! source
In their own words:
[…] We maybe the recent young people
as being frowned about by adults
feel sympathy for Super Rats
emerging out of our urban life and
maintaining crooked coexistence with human beings
We capture the comrades
one by one with a net we bought at Donki
It’s not to chase them away
We can swear by our strong humanism toward animals
so much so that we’re unable to even touch
the original forms of meat we consume everyday
Our aim is simply to produce real figures of Pikachu
Just for the purpose
we kick around piles of garbage bags
and run after rats escaping along walls […]
Pokémon Invades “Minecraft”, Creates A Pokéfan’s Dream
Ever since I was a kid, I thought it would be one of the greatest things ever if there was a three dimensional world of Pokémon that could be explored. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t alone with that dream. Now with the new Pokémob mod for Minecraft, that dream is slowly coming to fruition.
On the heels of Portalcraft, an ambitious mod that adds Pokémon to the game.
And this is why Minecraft is the only game you’ll ever need.
Republican Candidate Drops Lyrics from “Pokémon: The Movie 2000”
How’s this for a blast from the past? Republican Nominee hopeful Herman Cain did something that turned heads and quirked eyebrows during a debate on Thursday night. In his closing statements, Cain included one of his favorite quotes: “A poet once said, ‘life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it’s never easy when there’s so much on the line’”. One quick Google search will tell you that the line is in fact written by Donna Summer for the theme song of the second Pokémon movie, Pokémon: The Movie 2000.
This isn’t the first time Cain has used this particular theme song for inspiration. He has used it on his website and his announcement for candidacy on May 21, attributing the line to the closing theme for the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics. The last time he used it before the internet was able to call him out was at a Republican Leadership Conference in June.
It actually really surprises me that it’s taken the internet this long to track down where Cain’s favorite quotable line came from, but I’m glad that it did. Nobody knows whether Cain knows about how he’s been quoting a Pokémon movie for so long, but it’ll be interesting to see what he does with this buzz. I would love to see him capitalize on his mistake and start campaigning solely on Pokémon theme song lyrics. Odds are this will only become a funny headline once, but a guy can dream.
REPEAT, NERD SPOTTED

I am trying to accept the responsibilities that come with being an adult as gracefully as I can.” “But it’s proving a little difficult.” “There’s like, 300 more Pokémon than there were when I started.”
GLAD I DONT KNOW ANYONE LIKE THAT.
RIGHT? Every time I even think about picking up my Pokemon games again I think of this and cry.
this is terrifying I can’t look away
