Pokemon: A cartoon ripe for parody
The whole premise behind the show is silly and ripe for parody.
I’ve joked about the parallels between Pokemon battles and dog fights or cockfights in a previous post.
The video-game comedy website Dorkly regularly pokes fun at Pokemon.
Here are some examples:
Ash Discovers New Pokemon (Oct. 11, 2010)
Pokemon: The Later Years (Oct. 20, 2010)
5 Pokemon Facebook Updates (Aug. 19, 2010)
And as a bonus, Pokemon fan art:
100 Pokemon Brought to Life through Creative Art (Sept. 18, 2010; Designzzz)
20 Pokemon re-imagined by artist Gavin Mackey on Dorkly
Artwork: Pikachu gives a jumpstart (top) and Pokémon Center Closed by Ry-Spirit (bottom).
