There are now over 600 different Pokémon (and only those poindexters at Gamma Squad know ’em all). Not to get all “back in my day” on you, but back in my day, we only had 150 Pokémon, and one crappy Pokémon movie, and by gum, that’s the way we liked it. You only had to spend $300 and wade through 47 packs of cards, and 19 Goldeen replicates, before coming across an elusive Dragonite. Gotta like those odds.
Luckily, for us old timers with our Alf POGs, the folks at GusNYC picked from the original 150 when assigning Pokémon celebrity doppelgangers, most of which are spot on. Emma Stone: Ponyta evolving into Julianne Moore: Rapidash is perfect, especially when you start writing the Pokemon Nights script with Dirk Diglett in your head.
Here are some of our other GusNYC favorites.
