ask a pokemon family

The Belchers play Pokemon GO

Linda is a highly aggressive player, driving around at all hours of the night to make sure gyms stay her colour. She gives all her pokemon big bold nicknames. (Her Jolteon is “King Sparky”; her Gastly is called “Gaseous Clay”.)

Tina only catches Ponyta. She’s not interested in any other pokemon. She has over a hundred Ponyta now. She doesn’t take them to gyms because she doesn’t want them to get hurt.

Louise is publicly derisive of Pokemon GO, and claims she doesn’t play. But secretly she has a squad made up of all the cutest pokemon. She can tell you everything about their kickass moves and is an excellent trainer.

Gene tried playing for a little while, but became too anxious about pokemon escaping his pokeballs and all the team rivalry, so he quit. Instead he’s writing an epic pokemon rock opera, and is constantly asking the rest of the family for updates so that it’s authentic.

Teddy is surprisingly knowledgeable about Pokemon GO and gives the others advice. He puts a lure on the pokestop outside Bob’s Burgers everyday to drum up business and is neglecting his own job to catch as many as he can.

Mort’s funeral parlour is a gym, but no one can beat the immensely powerful Gastly that he’s put there. He owns that gym.

Bob can only seem to catch Pidgeys. Every egg he hatches gives him a Pidgey. He has seventy Pidgeys.


((Ever imagined what your Pokemon OCs might’ve looked like when they were younger or pre-evolved?

I’m just testing out a new meme here that maybe everyone could try out for themselves! It was fun for me making my characters young again!

I’m placing this under the tag #pokeocchildhood.))
