Pokemon is probably one of those things with such a cultural impact on society that even non-players and non-fans of the franchise know what it is. Starting from its humble beginnings as a game playable on the Nintendo Game Boy in the 90s, the franchise has now spawned a number of games playable on different devices, an anime series that continues to air fresh episodes for more than two decades, and multiple Pokemon Centers in Japan! It has brought people in every corner of the world together, and has continued to do so in ways that one could never have imagined.
Considering the level of its domination in the media, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see countless memes made to poke fun (no pun intended) at Pokemon and the shared experience that it provided to those who grew up playing and watching the franchise. Whether it’s about Ash’s supposed immortality, strange Pokedex entries, or the absurdity of some of the game’s mechanics, fans will never run out of things to say for their beloved series.
