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. 😂

F**ker is too busy playing Fortnite.

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.

-TrainerBleach

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.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
