Politics is just a game, Nora Reed realized. And not just any game—Pokémon. U.S. politics is Pokémon incarnate. That’s when she had her latest big idea.
Pokémon takes the idea of gladiatorial combat, each player sending their champion into the ring to duke it out for bragging rights, and turns it into something akin to a deceptively simple card game.
Reading story after story, Reed noticed that the arguments made by opponents of Muslim refugees fell into familiar grooves. The repetition of the same arguments over and again felt rote and mechanized. Gradually, the headlines she read and the notifications popping up in Reed’s Nintendo 3DS screen started to blur. “Donald Trump uses ISLAMOPHOBIA!” she’d say to herself with a smirk. “It’s super effective!”
