While a Pokemon master’s objective is to “Catch em’ All!” , this particular young man only has eyes for one individual.
Dressing up like Ash Ketchum, he gathers a crowd in the school cafeteria and asks his crush if she wants to go to prom with him.
And since it’s not everyday a Pokemon master puts his day job on hold to ask a girl out, she obviously says YES!
Pokémon Hitomchan channels his inner Psy in their weird but amazing parody of the Korean pop star’s latest single, “Gentleman.” YouTube channel Poke Parody TV even recruits all your favourite characters from the show for the video. Watch as Ash, Brock and Misty shake their hips like Psy all over this mall.
We might as well also give them a little pat on the back for not going the Psyduck route because the Psy/Psyduck references must be getting old.
I don’t know if I should be embarrassed or insanely proud that I know most of the cringe-worthy songs highlighted in this video that oh-so conveniently condenses 1999 into ten minutes. For example, I totally remember rocking out to Mambo No. 5 and Shania Twain’s “I Feel Like a Woman” (I was 8, okay?). But I also find myself going “damn, that’s a really good song” the longer I watch. TLC’s “Unpretty” and Mariah Carey’s “Heartbreaker feat. Jay Z” are one of the best songs ever.
There were a lot of ups and downs when it came to 1999. I mean, Pokémon Snap was possibly the worst idea for a video game but Sonic was amazing. Then there was 10 Things I Hate About You which, by the way, is still one of my favourite movies. AND FIGHT CLUB! Thank you, Brad Pitt for starring in Fight Club!
Ugh. Someone get me a time machine. Let me go back to the days of Backstreet Boys, bad haircuts and Pokémon!
Thanks to College Humor, this may be the only time we ever see Batman, Superman, the Hulk and Thor go up against the likes of Pokémon and Calvin Klein. Yeah, that’s right Calvin Klein because this is a superhero cologne off!
Just in case we haven’t already filled your Pokémon quota today, the Tumblr Pokémon x Nic Cage hopes to draw actor Nic Cage’s face on all 151 Pokémon (because there’s only 151. New species don’t count).
According to the blog description, the face behind the blog started the project as a way to kill time while at work. They hopes to draw at least 1 Nic Cage rendering a day until the very end.
Yes. This is what dreams are made of.
Nic Cage as Bulbasaur
Nic Cage as Charizard
Nic Cage as Wartotle
OH MY NOSTALGIA. Remember owning an N64 console?
At that point, there were only two Pokémon titles available: Pokémon Stadium, and Pokémon Snap. Yes, I know these weren’t the best of the Pokemon games in it’s series, but hey, we were willing to work with what we got. Anyways, YouTube channel Gritty Reboots, takes all the things we know and love, and turns them into movie trailers. This time, they decided to make Pokémon Snap actually epic in this re-imagining.
You might be wondering – how do you even make a trailer about the worst Pokémon game? Well, they did it, and it’s actually really awesome! The animation of the Pokemon, the effects, and an actual plot line seriously makes me want to start a Kickstarter project to get this movie made in real life. Seriously. Take my money. Make it happen.

We all had them or pined for them… and I’m sure some of us STILL play with them secretly. Below is a list of the top 10 toys from the 90s that ever existed. AKA If you didn’t have these toys growing up, your childhood probably sucked.
Nano’s, Giga Pets, digital aliens/babies/pets
When I was a kid, my mom called ALL the toy stores to reserve a Nano Puppy when they got a new shipment. They were only around $15, and everyone wanted one. And once you had one, you had to have more. The pets had to be fed, put to bed, and you even got to clean up their barf and poop! It sounds really boring, but they were highly addictive. Admit it, you tried to see how many poops and barfs you could ignore until your pet died. We ll did it. When Furbys came along later, it was like “ah sh*t!!”
Pogs were so simple, Just little pieces of cardboard or metal with colors and images on them. Yet, we loved them and battled with our friends to collect more. It’s such a pointless game, I don’t even know why I liked them so much. I can’t recall the official rules of Pogs, but I remember every person flipped over cardboard pogs with a metal “slammer.”
Yak Bak’s or Talkboys, as seen in the movie Home Alone, were essentially the same thing. They’re sick little devices, used to record sound with a built-in microphone. They were so popular, they even sold yak bak pens. I cleverly hid mine in my sleeve to record people saying things they shouldn’t. If you had one of these, you definitely spent hours recording yourself or others saying swear words.
Game Boys really go without saying, but I’m going to mention it anyway. The first one that came out weighed about 10 lbs, and looked like a bad MS-DOS operating system. They were all black and white, or should I say black and grey, with weird distorted graphics that were incredibly awesome. I’m not going to lie, I still use my non-color screen Game Boy whenever I’m on a plane or train and need to pass the time. Even though they don’t say it, I know everyone around me is jealous.

Depression among teenagers is a very serious issue. That’s why when Hana posted this PSA about being sad I was totally feeling for her — whether it’s dealing with parents, rumours, dating — sometimes being a teenager SUCKS.
Hanna cries herself to sleep every night and can’t even bring herself to speak to the camera, opting instead to write her messages on Post-it notes. She decided to share her feelings via webcam, but it turns out what Hanna needs isn’t a friendly person to listen to her. What she actually needs is a therapist to guide her through her gaming addiction.

Get it? Mewtwo, Newtwo… I’m sorry.
Anyway, The Pokemon Company Intl. and Nintendo have announced two brand-new games coming out in 2010 for the apparently still-kicking Pokemon franchise. HeartGold and SoulSilver, which are updated versions of the classic Gold and Silver versions.
These new updated versions for the DS will include great graphics and controls, including touch screen controls and bringing back plenty of oldschool Poke-characters to Poke-capture with Poke-balls, Poke-train and Poke-battle!
And Poke is once again an adjective.
I was the very best, like no one ever was. I caught them all, as my real test, I trained them as my cause. I had travelled across the land, I searched far and wide. Each Pokémon I did understand, the power that’s inside. The question is, since I already did this with Pokémon Red, Pokémon Gold, and Pokémon Diamond, is it really worth it to go another round with Pokémon Platinum? As it turns out, maybe not as much as I think. If you were to compare this newest addition to the over 5 series of Pokémon titles out there, Pokémon Diamond to Pokémon Platinum would be the same comparison to Pokémon Red to Pokémon Yellow. What I mean by this is that it is the same game, same characters, and same story line but with a few new additions and changes. For this reason I won’t go too deep into the game but rather discuss all there is to do (and believe me, there is A LOT to do) and the new additions to this title.
Developed by Game Freaks and published by Nintendo, you play the role of a young boy or girl (with different clothing than in Pokémon Diamond) in the world of Sinnoh, you and your friend decide to go get some Pokémon (which by the way are a variety of almost 500 little monsters you capture, befriend and train to battle for you), when you are stopped by a Pokémon researcher, he gives both of you a choice of three starting Pokémon and your off on your very own adventure of growth and life lessons.
In battles using Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo’s wireless gaming service, players can use their Wii Remote™ to compete with friends after exchanging friend codes, or against players of comparable skill. The game automatically searches for other players who are online. The sights and sounds of the game bring the action to life as well: The graphics show each move in full detail, while the action is narrated by the same announcer from the Pokémon TV show.
The launch of Pokémon® Battle Revolution heralds a number of firsts for Nintendo’s Wii™ video game system. Pokémon Battle Revolution is:
• The first online Wii game in the Americas.
• The first Pokémon game for Wii.
• The first Wii game to wirelessly link to Nintendo DS™.
• The first Wii game that lets players use their Nintendo DS as a controller.
The game contains a number of battle modes for different kinds of play. In Colosseum Battle Mode, players have 10 different Colosseums in which to stage their epic challenges. In Nintendo DS Battle Mode, players battle Pokémon that they have raised in their Nintendo DS Pokémon® Diamond and Pokémon® Pearl games. Up to four players can use their Nintendo DS systems as a wireless controller, which uses the same battle interface found in the DS games.
