"For your mild amusement, I renamed all my Pokemon whatever my 2 year old called them" -- june1920
Alexander Steinberg, an 18-year-old aspiring filmmaker managed to put together a video that encourages us all as an audience to take a minute, and ask ourselves, 'why does Pokémon GO! matter?'
Does it really? Or is there something more meaningful, impactful 'afoot? Is it the game's ability to unite strangers that'd otherwise never cross paths? One quote captured in the video sticks out in particular:
“You know my favorite part about this? Number one my brother and I used to play this as kids. He ends up passing away,” CrobinMaxxis said, pointing up. “He’s up there still, still, having a better fuckin’ collection than I do. But all the violence in the world, brutality, all this fucking racism. Look around here. You see this?” he said, gesturing to the crowd. “Not a single one is the same. Everyone is having a good time. This is what the world needs now.”
Pokémon GO just dropped in America last night, and my productivity levels have already taken a critical hit, man. So many places to be, areas to explore, monsters to catch, and straight up not enough time in a day for all of it anymore...Comment at the bottom with tales of your Pokémon GO-fueled escapades thus far! We might just feature some of our favorites in an upcoming Pokémon GO piece!
When your dedication to catch 'em all becomes so extreme that you start seeing the people around you as actual Pokémon, it might be time to step away from Pokémon GO for awhile. However, if your girlfriend is completely chill with becoming the face of your collection, go for it. But I might rename some of these if you want to keep your testicles... Because if some of these are accurate you won't be doing yourself any favors by giving your Pokemon these names based on her and her behavior. If you thought these names were a riot, you have to check out some of the best unfortunate names that people have been called by their parents.
Poor 'ol Boone Sheridan who lives in Massachusetts, downloaded Pokémon GO last Friday, only to end up realizing that his house was marked as one of his area's gyms. Thing is, it makes sense because Sheridan said his place used to be a church in the 1800's (thus explaining why it'd be marked as a gym).
Churches are f**king hotbeds in Pokémon GO right now. Sheridan's coverage via Twitter, of his place being frequented by Pokémon trainers who were just trying to train 'n catch 'em all, is pretty damn hilarious.
Tell you what man, these guys certainly don't seem to hold anything back when it comes to exploring the outer boundaries of dark humor. Here's another one of their videos:
Wonder what they'd make of that whole time Koffing started popping up in the Holocaust Museum a bit ago...
