I like the implication that he can only play this while Pikachu sleeps or else he'll be heavily judged.

that side eye before taking out the game boy, looks like he's doing something illegal

ID: haf253f

Either that or he farted as he was reaching for it and didn't want to wake the electric rat.

Probably caught him one time gazing at the horse for too long.

In an alternate universe, original Game Boys apparently have a backlight.

ID: hadu9hw

With all kids running in woods Alt Nintendo knew that would be a killer feature.

A solar powered GB and a long life battery. Noice.

But then they'd still opt to sell worm lights and that one light that also had a big square magnifying glass.

ID: haegwvg

I think (naturally, Japan only) there actually was a Game Boy released with a frontlight. I guess though that Nintendo at the time thought actually seeing your screen was only for the Japan ruling class.

EDIT: Here it is if anyone's curious.

Japanese bastards refusing to share their handheld gaming backlight technology.

Worm lights were an absolute game changer.

At first I was like, “how do you know there is a back light?” Then I got a memory from the early 90s of me asking my dad if we could turn the light on in the car so I could play Super Mario Land as the Sun had almost completely set. There was no save back then and I was on like level 3! Dad said no 🙁

You didn’t try and play the game by the intermittent flashes of street lights!? So… many… headaches…

ID: haei8my

Did he tell you it was illegal? Mine did, I always got sick trying to play Pokemon under the flashes of the streetlights

ID: haeil5g

I was gonna say...

I remember the flashlight. Then when the color was out, I remember the swirly see through light under my blanket.

ID: haenlk3

The Pokédex had a backlight. Ash was able to use it at night.

Selects Run

Bear uses Maul

ID: hae46m1

I’ve seen this movie! It’s called Grizzly Man.

ID: haelkov

Timothy Treadwell didn't run though. He saw the Bear then used the option Set-up Camp.

ID: haeeguc

I thought it was The Revenant?

ID: haek3by

Oh no! Trainer is bleeding out!


God I hated that noise.

ID: haem72d

Then they remixed the shit out of it in gen 5 just to remove it in gen 6 almost entirely. Such a shame

ID: haewrpe


It’s not very effective…

Take only peeks. Leave only by running.

Real-world animals have been mentioned a number of times to exist in the world of Pokémon. Most often, they are mentioned in relation to a Pokémon category. For example, Pikachu is known as the "Mouse Pokémon" and was directly referred to in the anime as an "electric mouse", hinting that real-world mice exist in the Pokémon world. Other than this, all other mentions of animals are rare.

In "Ash Catches a Pokémon" Pidgeotto is seen eating a regular worm before being captured by Ash.

In "The Water Flowers of Cerulean City" fish can be seen in the fish tanks inside the Gym

In "Battle Aboard the St. Anne" a cooked lobster can be seen as food served on the ship.

In season 1, Episode 20, there is also a real ferret fighting a ekans.

The stuff in the anime is just a case of "Early Installment Weirdness". They never seem to reference animals once the anime fell into it's groove near the second half of the first season.

ID: haeoi19

Basically, the last reference to a real world animal was in 1997, 24 years ago. They’ve long been retconned out since.

The only thing to survive is insects like a flies or worms.

ID: haeo6yz

So like, how do animals fit into the Pokemon tree of life? IIRC, in the Pokemon universe, humans are essentially Pokemon too, evolved from the same root.

ID: haeqj0b

The slave trade was different when it came down to turn based combat and Pokeballs

ID: haete9a

Maybe a "mouse" is just a term for an animal family used in scientific classification. Like canine refers to dogs, wolves, foxes etc

Do Pluto and goofy next

In an alternate universe a gameboy is playing a horse trying to catch a pikachu.

I like the idea of Pokémon. You catch wild animals. Train them up by beating other wild animals to death. Then you duel in animal fights. Some underground, other public. Sometimes you beat a kids favorite animal. Other times a professional trainer.

If you catch one you don't like. You simply just take it away of it's free life, and let it be in a pokeball, which is uploaded into a computer. Where it can be until you maybe one day need it.
