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.

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

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.

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.

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

Redditor RedBoyFromNewy wanted to shed some light on creepy issues we need to be discussing. They asked:

"What’s a disturbing fact that not a lot of people know of?"

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
