People Imagine How They'd React If Pokémon Suddenly Existed In The Wild – And We Just Squirtle'd A Bit

Warner Brothers

Most of us 90s kids grew up with Pokémon. There was a GameBoy game, a trading card game, a cartoon, and merchandise; oh, the merchandise!


Most of us have probably given some thought to what we'd do if pokemon were real. Would we become trainers or gym leaders, become Pokéfans and devote our lives to repping our favorite pokemon, or would we run screaming to the nearest fallout shelter because holy crap monsters are real?

Reddiy user LabMember003 asked:

"Pokémon suddenly exist in our world, what would you do next?"

You've Obviously Thought About This

1) get 2000s scene girl hair

2)get a sweatband around one of my arms

3) wear clothes with 10000 useless zippers.

4)Name my self something edgy like Bongo. Or Lisa

5)Take over a shed, become a gym leader.

6) act like I'm the best trainer of x type pokemon

7) act shocked and fall to my knees with a close up shot of my clenched fist when a 10 year old kid beats my a** with the wrong type pokemon.

Especially When You're In A Hurry

Buy a ton of repels. I don’t need a three foot caterpillar in my life!

--sorry-

Or annoying f**king bats that won't stop confusing me.

Blasting Off Again!

Dye my hair blue, find a girl who will dye hers red, and catch a talking Meowth. 😏

Overly Practical

Hide. I doubt Pokeballs also exist, which means we gotta wait for someone to develop a similar device, which means there are f**king dragons, dinosaurs, storm causing titans, hostile super computers made of iron, psychic types that could easily rip my limbs off, grass types that could poison entire city blocks, electric types that could kill anyone instantly, steel types that are impervious to any form of man made attack, etc.

The world would end. We'd all be f**ked. For example, how the hell would we combat Mewtwo, Rayquaza, or Groudon if one of 'em got pissed. And that's only three of like 70 that could instantly fucking end humanity.
We gotta think before we just wish Pokemon into existence.

There's gonna be a 12 year old Pokemon trainer that's going to save the entire world. don't sweat about it. 😂

Just My Luck

I'd probably die. Imagine walking into some f**king vegetation only to meet some demigod who will f**k my sh*t up.

They didn't say it was a randomizer, if you avoid burnt buildings, science headquarters and dark caves you should be fine! Also don't go to any mysterious islands on a foggy day either.

Get Back To Nature

Army of Bulbasaurs, Venusaurs and Ivysaurs to re-grow rainforests and save the planet.

I would begin the hunt for Shaymin. It purifies the polluted areas.

This Youngster Gets It

1.) Put on yellow t-shirt and backwards blue baseball cap.
2.) Catch Rattata
3.) Stand with my level 4 Rattata (he's in the top percentile) in the middle of a trail.
4.) Turn in 90° angles, occasionally taking a few steps.
5.) If I see another person I yell at them and force them to fight my vastly superior Pokémon.
6.) Lose horribly

Team Plasma Wasn't THAT Bad

The PETA would go ape-s*it crazy and call for a ban on pokemon being kept by trainers

Like go full-on Team Plasma.

-RedButterfree1

You can't just go around comparing Team Plasma to an evil organization of PETA.

-MlSSlNG

It's The Natural ThingTo Do 

Catch them all.

Right? Duh.

Let's Get Cookin

Giphy

Look up recipes. The meat in the Pokemon world had to come from somewhere and it looks pretty darn tasty.

-supremecourt-ney

Might I suggest a Farfetch'd? They come with their own leek sticks.

-oowoowoo

I love that this is the official reason that they are so rare:

They carry around their own side dish.

Farfetch'd, a Wild Duck Pokémon. Farfetch'd makes a delicious meal, especially when cooked with leek. Because of this, Farfetch'd is nearly extinct.

If you've ridden in a convertible with the top down, or on a motorcycle with a helmet with no face plate, you've probably gotten a bug caught in your throat at some point. Usually, though, you cough and sputter for a bit and the ordeal is over and done with. Sometimes things don't go so smoothly.

Reddit user LucasTheBrazilianGuy shared his epic tale of mental and physical injury at the hands (feet?) of a mere insect.

Fair warning: this one is fairly graphic, and definitely nightmare fuel for anyone who doesn't like insects (and even if you do).

But my soul is pure....

No matter who we love.... our significant others, or agents, our clients, fans or loved ones... it's never enough! And artists need the validation. That validation will help change the world. We're all trapped in moments but when we're most lucid we can change humanity! We should never fear the things we believe in; especially if it leads to progress.....

Redditor u/spankthewhitewhale wanted to unburden a few feelings by asking.... What comes across as selfish but actually isn't?

Human history is pretty cool. We document ourselves in all kinds of different ways, whether it be through art, or architecture, or stories--museums exist to preserve these artifacts of the human race. One day, we might find things we know well in a museum.

What is the hallmark of your creed? By that, we mean--each and every person has their own set of values and rules to live by. Those things define our choices, and therefore, those things define us.

Fate is fickle, and bad things seem to happen for no discernible reason. Sometimes, though, things just barely avoid going horribly wrong.
