Rare footage of the japanese army mobilizing in 1940.

That Zipper merge

I saw this live in 2015 in Yokohama, Japan. It was incredible. Literally everyone was wearing Pokemon apparel, Pikachu's dancing all over the place, and shiny Pokemon giveaways at the Pokemon Centers. I loved it. Can't wait to go back!

The Japanese are damn good at .

You don't need two eyes for a monocle, so it should work more than perfect

Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green are in the running to be inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame

Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green are in the running to be inducted into the World Video Game Hall of...

Wait. There is a video game Hall of Fame? And Red/Blue/Green weren't in it?

The fucking Sims got in before Pokémon?

that music

I'm pretty sure it was the best selling PC game ever until like Minecraft. It was a huge deal and was very very successful to spreading the reach of gaming beyond the typical people involved in 2000. And man ...

They were nominated, but not inducted. The Hall started in 2015 and only accepts 6 games per year, so they have a lot to go through.

2015:

Doom Pac-Man Pong Super Mario Bros. Tetris World of Warcraft

2016:

The Legend of Zelda The Oregon Trail The Sims Sonic the Hedgehog Space Invaders Grand Theft Auto III

I used to help my autistic brother with competitive Pokemon when he was younger; I nearly cried when I got this in the mail..

I used to help my autistic brother with competitive Pokemon when he was younger; I nearly cried when I got this in the mail..So long story short, my younger brother is autistic, so he has many problems making friends. He wanted to join a competitive Pokemon battling club at school to help with this, so I showed him the ropes and gave him some monsters I trained myself to get started. Today this came in the mail: https://imgur.com/0cxnHPa

He has problems writing, but it says: "You gave me your Vaporeon that bodies Drifblim's Explosion with 2/3 HP left, so I gave you mine."
<insert attempt at drawing Vaporeon>

And as a side note, it takes him ages to handwrite something, so this was a surprise to me.

Edit: Woke up to see even more responses, wow! Thank you all for the kind words and those those that shared their stories. I always thought I was a failure as an older sister, but you've all restored my faith, thank you!

Just learned my eyes are water type. ;-;

As someone who's autistic, I sincerely thank you. Making friends is one of our biggest struggles, and you helped him do it. I can't express enough how touching it is that you would help him do that. I'm not sure if you understand the full impact you had on him (although I can't speak for you), but considering what I've gone through such help feels immense.

Also, I can definitely relate to the bad handwriting! I can't read my own myself. His is way better than mine!

Now I'm about to cry thats so sweet .°(ಗдಗ。)°.

And someone used rain dance

You can tell which ones are newer, but I still love the original style. The original Torchic is adorable.

Mudkips seen some shit

I really like the original Treecko. Thought it looked super cute.

I thought it looked better than the new one

I'm pretty sure Stitch is the Alolan form of sableye.

Now I want to do a Lilo and Stitch themed playthrough of Sun and Moon.

In the Indigo League series, Jiggypuff never realized that when it used Sing, it would put everyone to sleep, and would get really mad, insulted that its audience was asleep, so it would use the marker to mark on those that passed out.

PUFFFF

I love how you added the marker. Great job!

You should also clarify that this Jigglypuff used the marker as a microphone.

This is the ideal pokemon body style. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.

I'd do anything to look that good, except like workout and eat healthy and stuff.

The sudowoodo she tells you not to worry about

This is how I imagine the perfect IV EV trained competitive Pokemon look like lol

After the other awesome Pokémon tattoo my friend wanted to share his Flygon here as well.

Flygon was always my favorite as a kid, the first one I ever got I named "FlyGon Jin" because Star Wars prequels came out.

"flygon favorite as kid" I'm 27 and I remember Pokémon red and blue on Gameboy. you make me feel incredibly old.

I played diamond in 7th grade, this comment hurts me.

Not sure how everyone feels about Pokémon tattoos, but here's a Gastly I got yesterday.

Tattoos are always welcome here!

Oh wait, the no art weekends.

Tattoos are welcome Monday to Friday!

I appreciate because it's not the first three damn starters.

We get it, you picked Charmander 20 years ago.

That tattoo is just ghastly.... hehe

I'll show myself out.

It's pretty well done!
