Recently, Pokemon enthusiasts have been raising a storm over Game Freak’s decision to exclude many Pokemon from the upcoming Pokemon Sword & Shield. While many are still grumbling – others fans are now channeling their dissatisfaction into producing funny memes.
Namely, many of them are drawing up or editing artwork of excluded Pokemon (Aipom, Lopunny, etc.) disguising themselves as Galar-region Pokemon – and trying to sneak into the game. Along with these posts are snide captions which play off the disguised Pokemon as illegal immigrants of sorts, attempting to break past the Galar-region border patrol.
Check out some examples below.
One amazing fan-edit even has Regigigas disguising itself as retired President of Nintendo America Reggie Fils-Aimé to avoid suspicion.
We’re not sure if this trend will keep up for long, but it’s still good to see fans trying to make the best of the situation. Let’s hope things only get brighter for the Pokemon community from here on.
