23 Pokemon gifs that reflect the human conditionon August 7, 2015 by I love Japanese games
Someone once said that art imitates life, which imitates art. Something like that. I think it might have been my Art History lecturer – I can’t remember, I wasn’t listening. Anyway, recently I’ve been watching Pokemon again with my younger nephew and, on seeing Misty’s emotional struggles with her synchronised swimming sisters, I thought to myself – ‘Pokemon is like a MIRROR!’
A mirror in the dirty face of life!
And then I immediately punched the air in celebration – and hit tumblr HARD for a bunch of Pokemon gifs and then just dumped them all below to demonstrate just how existential this Pokemon stuff really is.
