->''"What!? Your Meme is evolving!"''

''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has been around for a pretty long time by Internet standards, with the first games coming out in 1996, and has since grown to encompass many different types of media. It's also ridiculously popular, [[TakeThatUs especially with nerds.]]

The spawning of [[MemeticMutation memes]] was inevitable. [[GottaCatchThemAll Gotta mutate 'em all!]]

The Cheezburger network has a page dedicated to these, with new ones every day: [[http://memebase.cheezburger.com/pokememes Pokememes]]

Website/{{Smogon}} is something of a FountainOfMemes as far as fansites go. Memes originating from Smogon are listed [[YMMV/{{Smogon}} here]]. The same applies to LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemon, its memes can be found [[Memes/TwitchPlaysPokemon here]].
%%
%%PLEASE, REMEMBER: Memes that don't explain where they came from will be deleted. Even if you think it's self explanatory, there are people who will not get it. There is no such thing as a universal meme.

!!Please add entries in the following format:
* The meme. [=[[=]labelnote:Explanation[=]]=]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[=[[/=]labelnote[=]]=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]
** Further mutations and successor memes, if any.

* VOLCANO BAKEMEAT: [[labelnote:Explanation]]A SoBadItsGood, TranslationTrainWreck Vietnamese bootleg of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Crystal]]'' was [[LetsPlay LP'd]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZ_bhwCgtXg&feature=related here]]. Looking inside a stove revealed "A ADEPT A ARRANGING\\ FOR MOTHER\\ VOLCANO BAKEMEAT" [[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7G4-5FITos&t=01m40s SUPER PWNIN' MAGIKARP USED]] [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger DESTRUCTION RAINS FROM THE HEAVENS!!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]From LetsPlay/{{Super Skarmory}}'s ''Pokémon Platinum'' LetsPlay, which had a bunch of ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' references.[[/labelnote]]
* I came when I heard you beat the Elite Four. [[labelnote:Explanation]]AccidentalInnuendo said by Prof. Oak after the player defeats the Elite Four in R/B/G/Y/FR/LG.[[/labelnote]]
* Pant, pant... I finally got through that cave. It was much bigger than I'd expected. I got too tired to explore the whole thing, so I came outside. [[labelnote:Explanation]]More AccidentalInnuendo, this time from a girl on the Azalea Town side of Union Cave in HGSS.[[/labelnote]]
** I came through the tunnel, but I still have plenty of energy left. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Hiker Anthony in GSC, near the Union Cave as well.[[/labelnote]]
* Wild [x] appeared! [y] sent out [z]! [z] used [action]! It's Super Effective! Critical Hit! Foe [x] fainted! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The gameplay from ''Pokémon'' in general is a massive snowclone meme, used in any situation imaginable. In particular, a wild anything can appear at any time for any or no reason.[[/labelnote]]
* so I herd u liek mudkips [[labelnote:Explanation]]Uncertain origins; most commonly associated with a NSFW story involving an unfortunate bullying victim and a Mudkip plush. Later diverged from that and became a catch phrase relating to Mudkip, with Mudkip itself becoming something of a memetic EnsembleDarkhorse who regularly gets voted highly in polls, to the point where it's near-impossible to legitimately consider Mudkip your favourite Pokémon without getting some sort of backlash.[[/labelnote]]
** u herd rong
*** U mei liek mudkipz... but mudkipz [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=So+I+herd+u+liek+mudkipz#/d1l0vb1 don't liek u.]]
** ''[[http://norcinu.deviantart.com/art/Qwilfish-is-PWNZ0RHAXX-87098752 QWILFISH]], [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BITCH!!]]''
** so I herd u liek [[LightningBruiser GETTING REKT]] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Mega Swampert]](the final form of Mudkip) has become memetic within hours of its reveal, mostly for its overly-huge and bulky build, [[MusclesAreMeaningful a sizable Attack boost]] and Swift Swim. [[/labelnote]]
* ''[[ForcedMeme FUCK YEAH!]] [[MemeticBadass SEAKING!]]''[[labelnote:Explanation]]A ForcedMeme involving Seaking destroying things, or getting involved in natural disasters. It has since been accepted as a meme.[[/labelnote]]
* LET ME SHOW YOU MY POKEMANS. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Someone will always want to show you their Pokemans (sic).[[/labelnote]]
* [x] wants to learn [y], but [x] [[LimitedMoveArsenal can only know four moves.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The endemic use of LimitedMoveArsenal (in that each Pokémon can only know four moves at a time, and one of those must be replaced before any new moves can be learned) in all the ''Pokémon'' generations is another massive meme.[[/labelnote]]
** Alakazam can remember everything but a fifth move?!
* Slowpoke in a top hat.
** [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Image:What_kind_of_heresy_is_this.jpg What kind of heresy is this?!?]]
** Slowpoke can be slipped into all sorts of crazy scenarios, as long as he's slow (not to be confused with retarded) about it. (One classic ImageBoard example had Slowpoke making post twenty six million ''and one'', asking, "Am I too late for 25M GET?").
** Franchise/{{Pokemon}} + VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou = [[http://encyclopediadramatica.ch/File:Zetta_slowpoke.gif Zetta Slowpoke]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The CatchPhrase Of A TWEWY Character - "You're So Zetta Slow" and the Pokémon Slowpoke.[[/labelnote]]
* HOLY SHIT! SHINY PIDGEY! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The story about someone obsessed with a shiny Pokémon they almost caught resulting in a breakup with their girlfriend is legendary amongst the fandom.[[/labelnote]]
* IT'S A BLASTOISE. [[http://chromagic.blogspot.com/2011/02/blastoise-with-monocle-what-you-need-to.html WITH A MONOCLE]].
* I like shorts! They're comfy and easy to wear! [[labelnote:Explanation]]There is a member of the "youngster" trainer class who says this in ''EVERY GAME''.[[/labelnote]]
** Shorts Boy is later ''deconstructed'' at the Sinnoh Battle Frontier: he wonders if he'll grow up to be "Shorts Man," causing him some distress.
** [[Webcomic/PokemonX "I hate pants! They're uncomfortable and difficult to wear!"]]
** [[VideoGame/PokemonFireRedAndLeafGreen "You're not wearing shorts! What's wrong with you?"]]
** Now, with Black and White 2, we get the Skirt Girl.
* Calm mind Suicune has no weak.[[labelnote:Explanation]] Suicune is one of those infamous "bulky water" type monsters and so has few weaknesses and appreciable amounts of HP. Couple this with its meaty special attack and special defense stats and the move Calm Mind (which increases those same stats), and you've got yourself an impenetrable StoneWall sweeper.[[/labelnote]]
* A series of {{Image Macro}}s has been going around various boards of [[ImageBoards 4chan]] called "the Poképarents" that portray certain Pokémon as parents of various attitudes, including Charizard as a father that's never satisfied, Blastoise as a dad that's always understanding and fun, and Ninetales as a mom who occasionally goes after her own (and Gardevoir as a Hot Mom who is in turn ''pursued'').
** BLASTOISE WOULD NEVER HURT MY MOM. HE WOULD NEVER MAKE HER CRY LIKE HER BOYFRIEND JOHNNY DOES, [[http://art.ngfiles.com/images/21/forty-one_blastoise-wouldnt-ground-me.png IF BLASTOISE WAS MY DAD THINGS WOULD BE DIFFERENT AROUND HERE]].
*** BLASTOISE WOULDN'T HURT MOMMY LIKE JOHNNY DOES. BLASTOISE WOULD HYDRO PUMP JOHNNY.

** A large collection also exists [[http://chromagic.blogspot.com/2010/12/sorry-to-keep-you-waiting-have-some.html at this blog]]. This contains some macros from both of the archived threads, plus a whole bunch from later threads and even some original content.
* You're training on Route 22 for Brock's Gym, your Pokémon are tired, and who do you see? '''GARY MOTHERFUCKING OAK.''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]TheRival in R/B/Y has one of his battles in a side route near the city with the first gym.[[/labelnote]]
** WOOOOOOOO! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on a comic titled "Scyther Cannot Learn Fly" about Red's Scyther being unable to learn Fly while Blue flies off standing on the back of a Spearow.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://i641.photobucket.com/albums/uu134/Avianar/1232692012213.jpg You can't ignore his girth.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Part of Gary's MemeticSexGod credentials.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOHSiewG130 Everybody hates me 'cause I'm Gary fucking Oak!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another parody of "I'm on a boat" using clips from the ''Pokémon'' anime starring Gary Oak.[[/labelnote]]
** Photoshopping Gary's head onto any and all images has quickly gained popularity on /vp/.
** Badges [[MemeticBadass collected]]: [[http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l14nyxBwvD1qzm9mdo1_500.png ten of eight]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the anime, Gary manages to get ''10'' Badges instead of the standard 8 needed to enter a Pokémon league.[[/labelnote]]
*** Since when does GLaDOS give out Pokemon badges? [[labelnote:Explanation]] One of the ten badges Gary has resembles ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'''s Companion Cube.[[/labelnote]]
* HotSkittyOnWailordAction! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The TropeNamer for any bizarre, horrifying, or just plain impossible breeding options. Began after someone noticed that the gargantuan Wailord and the miniscule Skitty were in the same Egg Group, meaning they could breed with each other. Believed to have originated on the GameFAQs forums. [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/HSOWA Even the unofficial Pokémon wiki is in on this]].[[/labelnote]]
* "We must have that Sweet Honey! We must use it to attract Pokémon [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqTV4trll4g in great numbers!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Pokémon D/P/[=Pt=], some Team Galactic Members try to steal honey, an item used to attract Pokémon, from some guy. It became a meme when {{LetsPlay/Marriland}} started ranting about it during his walkthrough.[[/labelnote]]
** This became somewhat of an AscendedMeme in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY X and Y]]'' now that the player can use honey to attract a horde of Pokémon.
* BIG SERVICE! [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Marriland's Pokemon Emerald Nuzlocke, this was the trendy saying when he reached Dewford Town, and it stuck, especially when he repeated it in a [[LargeHam loud and hammy]] tone multiple times in the episode.[[/labelnote]]
* "Entei says: Everything is ok now". [[labelnote:Explanation]]A meme from Brazil. [[http://www.gaiaonline.com/journal/journal.php?mode=view&post_id=29252103 See here.]][[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/377178 "Magikarp! Use Splash Attack!"]]
** Use Hyper Beam!... WTF do you mean you don't know Hyper Beam?!?!?
** '''[[MagikarpPower I SWEAR TO GOD WHEN I EVOLVE I'M GOING TO KILL YOU ALL]]''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Magikarp Evolves, it becomes [[GameBreaker the powerful Gyarados.]][[/labelnote]]
* "I will defeat you with the Magikarp my dad gave me!" YOUR FATHER NEVER LOVED YOU. [[labelnote:Explaination]]Magikarp are famously useless until they evolve into Gyarados (see "I swear to got when I evolve I'm going to kill you all" above)[[/labelnote]]
* "[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment IT'S LIKE MY RATTATA IS IN THE TOP PERCENTAGE OF RATTATA]]!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Youngster Joey, the first trainer encountered in Gold/Silver/Crystal/[=HeartGold/SoulSilver=] says this when he calls you for a rematch. Oh, and [[WelcomeToCorneria he continues saying this after his Rattata evolves into a Raticate.]] Received newfound life after Occupy Wall Street took off.[[/labelnote]]
* Lance is a [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard cheating bastard]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Lance, a member of the Elite Four in R/B/Y/FR/LG and Champion In G/S/C/HG/SS, has Pokémon with moves they are normally incapable of learning, as well as having evolved too early. The worst offenders include his Dragonite with Barrier in RBY, and his Level ''40'' Dragonite in HGSS, when it normally doesn't evolve until Level 55.[[/labelnote]]
** Lance orders his Dragonite to fire Hyper Beam ''at human''.[[labelnote:Explanation]]During his assault against Team Rocket's secret hideout in Mahogany Town during GSC, he cries "Dragonite, Hyper Beam!" ''and the Rocket grunt was knocked back to the wall''. However it's implied that it can be a proper Pokémon battle, since that grunt comments his Dragonite is too strong.[[/labelnote]]
** Lance is a pervert.[[labelnote:Explanation]]His pose in GSC when you face him at the Elite Four.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://i781.photobucket.com/albums/yy93/GameSultan/Random/Funny/1267454490833.png Dicks Oak]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The use of the HelloInsertNameHere trope in the ''Pokémon'' games means it is common for players to name their rival something stupid. And since Blue Oak (the rival in the pictures) is a jerk...[[/labelnote]]
* In ''[=HG/SS=]'', the rival forcefully strips the player character of his/her Rocket Grunt disguise. The fanart and fan comics for this scene is honestly staggering.
* "Whoops. Dropped my balls." [[labelnote:Explanation]]There is a Juggler trainer that says this. AccidentalInnuendo[=/=]InnocentInnuendo ahoy.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.geekstir.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/pokemonbackwards.jpg Ekans backwards. Arbok backwards. Muk backwards.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ekans = Snake, Arbok = Kobra, Muk = [[FreudWasRight Well...]][[/labelnote]]
** Gyarados backwards is "Sodarayg" (pronounced "Soda Rage") [[labelnote:Explanation]] A joking response to the meme above. Has become a meme itself.[[/labelnote]].
** GIRAFARIG BACKWARDS IS GIRAFARIG [[labelnote:Explanation]] Well, it is true...[[/labelnote]]
* [[CeilingCling Ceiling]] [[{{Mooks}} Peon]] [[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum is]] [[ParanoiaFuel watching you infiltrate]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''Colosseum'', while sneaking around the Snagem Base, Peons will drop from the ceiling and battle you at random. It's a ''[[{{NightmareFuel/Pokemon}} lot]]'' more common in ''XD''.[[/labelnote]]
* Is the Crobat EV'd?
** OFFERING SHINY LEGENDARIES, PM ME WITH REQUESTS! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Trading chat rooms have three types of people. Those who just wanna trade, those who want perfect Pokémon and expect to get them from others (hence Crobat), and people offering super-rare Pokémon so they can get rare ones -- these people seldom actually ''have'' what they're offering.[[/labelnote]]
** No fish, no Dittos, no legendaries. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The caveat on so many Gen VI trade offers. Fish shinies are too easy to get and thus not desirable. Legends aren't viable competitively outside of a few,and the perfect shiny Ditto that's been cloned ad infinatum is an obvious hack useful for breeding and little else-and those who want no part of hacks stay well away from it,too.[[/labelnote]]
* [Picture of an obese person] A wild Snorlax appeared! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Snorlax are large, fat Pokémon.[[/labelnote]]
** Use the Heavy Balls! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Heavy Balls are Poké Balls that work better on heavy Pokémon.[[/labelnote]]
*** '''THE ULTRA BALLS. USE THEM.'''
** '''''MAN THE HARPOONS!'''''
* Bidoof, Bidoof, Bidoof is on fire.
** ...I'm dying Squirtle.
** Bidoof itself has become a major fandom meme, inspiring the ComMons entry.
* The chance of getting [[http://ryuutakeshi.deviantart.com/art/503-d-152114979 this error]] on Bulbapedia was so common that on April Fool's Day 2010, the forum skin changed to that of the error page.
* Cynthia's [[MemeticMolester pedophilia]] and [[MemeticBadass awesomeness]]. Everyone's her bitch. Even Red. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Cynthia has become well-known for how hard it is to fight her (perfect IV's, her Pokémon are generally of tough to fight species, her moves), her general personality, and her behavior. She's commonly seen as a stalker due to how many games she pops up in, and how she always appears where you are. This may be an AscendedMeme if her ''PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure'' version means anything.[[/labelnote]]
* Red. He's the biggest MemeticBadass and MemeticSexGod in the series, though recently Hilda (the female player character from ''Black And White'') has been giving him a run for his money.
* [[MemeticBadass Red]] says: [[VisibleSilence "..."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Red only says this when challenged in G/S/C/HG/SS because he's a HeroicMime in his game.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 A SPY SAPPIN']] [[http://tf2.gamebanana.com/sprays/56594 MAH SENTRET!]]
* And now, some {{Mondegreen}}s.

* As of the reveal of the Generation V starters, the grass starter, Snivy, has risen to memetic popularity in no time, garnering {{Fan Nickname}}s such as Smugleaf and Grinleaf.
** [[CatchPhrase U]] [[http://yattarosb.deviantart.com/art/The-Grasshole-show-1-165758313 mad?]]
** [[Manga/SoulEater My legend began]] [[http://gonintendo.com/wp-content/photos/thumb_grinleaf.jpg in the Fifth Generation.]]
** Its actual English name, Snivy, also [[AscendedMeme started out as a]] FanNickname.
* ''[[http://www.halolz.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/halolz-dot-com-pokemon-ygotas-pokemononmotorcycles.jpg Pokémon Battles on Bicycles]].'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Became a meme on a few forums after some people said Game Freak might implement it for ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite''. An obvious kick at ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' and lifted from TheAbridgedSeries.[[/labelnote]]
* Ethan/Lyra's Marill Is Evil. Usually Ethan's though.
* Flint is Ronald [=McDonald=]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Flint, A member of the Sinnoh Elite Four, has a huge red afro, and his outfit incorporates large amounts of yellow.[[/labelnote]]
** Volkner: [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Fourth Hokage]].
* Xatu's cry, which sounds like "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgPzpx065sg TWO-TWO]]" (トゥートゥー) to Japanese ears.
* [[ToiletHumor Bianca farting.]][[labelnote:Explanation]][[YoshizillaRhedosaurus Yoshizilla-Rhedosaurus]] posted possible TrollFic on this. [[/labelnote]]
** She's gotta fart Superbad!
* TENTAQUIL
* An Indian Elephant.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Raichu's and Gastly's ''Fire Red'' Pokédex entries both, for absolutely no reason, mention that they are capable of defeating "an Indian elephant," despite this being one of the few mentions of real-world animals anywhere in the game.[[/labelnote]]
* >N
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_ldkJQrZFI ...Nidorino.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Someone managed to make an absurd love song using ''every single one'' of the 151 Generation I Pokémon, except for a certain Pokémon. That's right, all 5 others of its own family, too.[[/labelnote]]
* [[UrbanLegendOfZelda Fake Pokémon]], such as Mewthree. Also, [[GoodBadBugs Glitch Pokémon]], like Missingno and M Block.
** [=MissingNo.=] is an EldritchAbomination.
* Unfortunately, [[http://www.facebook.com/pages/A-wild-Haiti-appears-Dugtrio-used-Earthquake-Its-super-effective/344489711614 this Facebook page involving a Dugtrio]] came out shortly after the Haiti earthquake...
* Wargle. A TRUE AMERICAN EAGLE. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Wargle[=/=]Braviary is an eagle-like Pokémon in ''Black and White'', which takes place in the FantasyCounterpartCulture version of NYC.[[/labelnote]]
** [[MeaningfulName WAR]]gle [[labelnote:Explanation]]People readily pointed out the "war" in the name of an American-eagle Pokémon, as if that were a commentary on what America looks like to Japan.[[/labelnote]]
*** Honestly, Wargle/Braviary is a bit of a bittersweet backhanded homage to America, with pokedex entries such as:
-->"They crush berries with their talons. They bravely stand up to any opponent, no matter how strong it is." (Rufflet/Washibon Black)
-->"They will challenge anything, even strong opponents, without fear. Their frequent fights help them become stronger."(Rufflet/Washibon White)
-->"It stands up to massive opponents, not out of courage, but out of recklessness. But that is how it gets stronger." (Rufflet/Washibon B2/W2)
-->"They fight for their friends without any thought about danger to themselves. One can carry a car while flying." (Wargle/Braviary Black)
-->"For the sake of its friends, this brave warrior of the sky will not stop battling, even if injured." (Wargle/Braviary B2/W2)
* [[FreudWasRight METAPOD used HARDEN!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Metapod, a very phallic Pokémon, only knows the move Harden if caught in the wild. Cue endless penis jokes.[[/labelnote]]

* [[strike:Genesect]] Dennis, the Pokémon that some believe wiped out the dinosaurs.

** Oshawhat
* A picture of Slowpoke, often with a caption of "Slowpoke, slowpoke slowwww..." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Slowpoke is the slowest Pokémon (mentally), so slow that it takes five seconds for it to feel pain. There is a tendency for trolls to bring up old, resolved issues just to start drama.[[/labelnote]]
** The caption "I see what you did there." with Slowpoke. [[labelnote:Explanation]][[FridgeBrilliance]][[/labelnote]]
* A musical meme going to the song [[PopNMusic Fushigi na Kusuri]] involves making a trainer feed their Pokémon a Carbos, the Pokémon growing into a muscular freak, exploding from a Metapod and then turning into a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1iH7x7U7EU Magical Girl]] It looks like they are trying to do this for [[SerialEscalation EVERY POKČMON YET.]]

* Implying owls are birds. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Someone argued against Hoothoot being the [[ComMons Johto regional bird]] with this, sparking a very popular running joke within the fandom.[[/labelnote]]
* Meloetta and [[TrademarkFavoriteFood icing, specifically vanilla icing.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[YoshizillaRhedosaurus Yoshizilla-Rhedosaurus]] wrote an erotic fanfic based on Meloetta pleasuring herself with vanilla icing, which was somewhat inspired by [[TheLooneyTunesShow the Merry Melody segment based on Elmer Fudd and his obsession with grilled cheese]]. It turned Meloetta into a huge hit on 4Chan's /vp/ board.[[/labelnote]]
* Gen V's Pokémon have become rather popular for references to CourageTheCowardlyDog. Cofagrigus has been linked with Ramses, for instance. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The joke is that Cofagrigus is a sarcophagus and Ramses was a pharaoh (RETURN THE SLAB).[[/labelnote]]
** Golurk's appearance has been compared to Randy, a HumongousMecha who sucked at enslaving planets.
** ˇKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! [[CourageTheCowardlyDog The mon' in gauze!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBi6VN8uFNQ The mon' in gauze!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Pokemon Basculin resembles Eustace from the show, and Cofagrigus properly fills the Ramses role.[[/labelnote]]
*** And "ˇżWhat's yer offer?!".
* "I'm a heartbreaker.... My name.... Charles."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Catchphrase of Charles, an NPC in the seventh city of Black/White.[[/labelnote]]
* When N's full name was announced (Natural Harmonia Gropius, the last sounding similar to Tropius), people took to drawing him as a Tropius, or shopping his head on a Tropius.
** Also writing the full name as sign of negation, shock or disbelief.
* [[DrillMole Excadrill]] lends itself to a ''lot'' of ''GurrenLagann'' references.
* [[http://9gag.com/gag/885411 Professor]] Series/{{House}} [[labelnote:Explanation]]House uses [[OlympusMons Arceus]] as a stand-in for God in [=S08E08=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xu2Il775R1M "Perils of Paranoia"]], something thing dedicated fans do. Cue fandom's Squee for being a so subtle, even obscure ShoutOut.[[/labelnote]]
* In Black & White, Nimbasa City's Big Stadium contains a ShoutOut to ''InazumaEleven'' in which one of the soccer players tells you to "Join the training of our Pokemon Eleven!" On the Japanese art community {{pixiv}}, there is now a [[http://www.pixiv.net/tags.php?tag=%E3%83%9D%E3%82%B1%E3%82%A4%E3%83%AC "PokeIre" tag]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The Japanese {{Portmanteau Series Nickname}}s for the two series are Pocket Monsters -> Pokemon and Inazuma Eleven -> [=InaIre=], so naturally "Pokemon Eleven" becomes "[=PokeIre=]" for {{Crossover}} fanart depicting things like ''Inazuma Eleven'' characters training Pokemon.[[/labelnote]]
* Merge everything with Kyurem! [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, the version mascots are Kyurem merged with either Reshiram or Zekrom. Cue pictures and fanart of Kyurem merged with other Pokemon. In a related note, [[Franchise/YuGiOh Polymerization and Synchro Summoning]] jokes are popular with Black and White Kyurem as well.[[/labelnote]]
* [[EpicFail Final Gambit Shedinja.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]There is a rare move called Final Gambit that [[SuicideAttack sacrifices the user]] to deal damage to the opponent [[CastFromHitPoints equal to the user's current HP]]. One of the few mons with access to it is Shedinja, a OneHitPointWonder with a ton of immunities. It is nigh-impossible to talk about the move in seriousness without someone bringing this up.[[/labelnote]]
* The "Technology is amazing!" guy. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In every generation except II, the starting town has an overweight man in it in awe of the wonders of modern in-universe technology. The fandom has noticed.[[/labelnote]]

* Pokemon Trainer Gray. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A thread on /vp/ featured an edit of the Ace Trainer Pokewood sprite to make it look like Light Yagami from Manga/DeathNote. Someone named the character Gray, and a backstory was made, involving a relation to Professor Juniper and his starter being stolen by Team Plasma. Almost everyone believed it, and someone even went far enough to make him his own battle music.[[/labelnote]]
* I'M ABOUT TO UNLEASH MY RAGE! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A line Hugh says in the English dub of the Black and White 2 animated trailer.[[/labelnote]]
** [[ViewersAreMorons NOT ACTUAL GAMEPLAY]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] From the beginning of the English dub animated trailer for [=B2W2=], there's a line showing NOT ACTUAL GAMEPLAY; it's showing [[spoiler:N on Dragonspiral Tower, an event that happened in BW]][[/labelnote]]

BUT [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6josPnHF94 I DISAGREE!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Colress, a MadScientist working with Team Plasma in Black and White 2, dramatically revealing that he doesn't actually believe in Team Plasma's goals, he's just working with them ForScience [[/labelnote]]
* '''Brawly:''' KAKAROT!! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Many people compare poor Brawly to [[DragonBallZ Broly]], due to their similar names. Also worth noting that both have blue hair (Broly's Super Saiyan form, anyway), just to rub it in further. Most Youtube videos that include Brawly in any way will have jokes in the comments about this (Or in the video itself, even).[[/labelnote]]
* Welcome to the Salty Spitoon. how tough are you? I went into Mt.Moon. With no repels. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on a ''SpongebobSquarepants'' episode. Has varying examples of how tough a player is.[[/labelnote]]

** I want to Squirtle your Jigglypuffs.
* The Black version is longer. [[labelnote:Explanation]]After Black and White versions were announced, it didn't take long for [[FreudWasRight freudian]] humor to start.[[/labelnote]]
* Flareon is the butt of all jokes that are Eeveelution-related. Stuff like "No one loves Flareon", "Eeveelutions and Flareon", and other similar stuff are spouted at the expense of the fire Eevee evolution.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Flareon's stats make it an excellent physical attacker... except for the fact that it can't survive the recoil from Flare Blitz and has few other good physical moves.'[[/labelnote]]
** '''GIVE FLAREON FLARE BLITZ!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Generally the most requested move for the Pokemon in order to utilize its physical stats. Will likely die out with Gen VI, see below.[[/labelnote]]
*** '''FLAREON STILL SUCKS EVEN WITH FLARE BLITZ!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]The usual retort after someone says the line above, particularly because Flareon is slow and doesn't have enough HP to survive the move due to its recoil damage. Popping up big time with Flareon finally getting the move in gen VI. [[/labelnote]]
* Trollfreak[[labelnote:Explanation]]A general fandom call to the developers for doing weird things like the Flareon issue above[[/labelnote]]
* "So tell me, are you a boy? Or are you a girl?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The gender select option at the beginning of each game. Especially [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue FireRed/LeafGreen]]. Jokes are frequently made about how you've lived next to Prof.Oak for years and yet he still doesn't know your gender.[[/labelnote]]
** "This is my grandson. Tell me, what was his name again?"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Related to the above, that Prof.Oak can't seem to recall his own grandson's name. Of course, this was the butt of many jokes by players in the games. "Douche" "Loser" ect.[[/labelnote]]
** What kind of professor can determine the sex of a quadrupedal lava monster, but not a human child? Professor Oak that's who! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A related meme referencing the fact that the only legendary to have a confirmed gender in the games is Heatran. Multitudes of jokes pertaining to how Pokemon professors can tell the gender differences between Heatrans, but not more human-like Pokemon like Meloetta, or even actual human beings.[[/labelnote]]
* It will evolve into a Fire-Fighting type. [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Fennekin was announced, there was speculation that it would evolve into a Fire-Fighting type like the three Fire starters before it. It has popped up whenever there is type guessing involved. [[/labelnote]]
* In the wake of the Gen VI announcement, frequent memes have popped up to troll the fanboys/girls who were denied their Ruby and Sapphire remakes.
** HOENN CONFIRMED![[labelnote:Explanation]]An attempt to say that a remake of Generation III is coming due to "hints" in the game.[[/labelnote]]
*** SINNOH CONFIRMED![[labelnote:Explanation]]A parody of the above, using obvious examples like "Generation IV Pokemon are in the game, Sinnoh confirmed!"[[/labelnote]]
**** KANTO CONFIRMED![[labelnote:Explanation]] Things like the ''PokemonTheOrigins'' anime are making people ponder Gen 1 re-remakes now.[[/labelnote]]
*** It looks like this meme is vindicated though, with the announcement of ''Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby''. Naturally, it also prompted an upswing in the "Sinnoh Confirmed" memes.
* Virizion Wireless[[labelnote:Explanation]]Virizion's name is a few letters off from Verizon. Cue several memes about the phone company with its name subbed in.[[/labelnote]]
* ''' ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOFROAKIE!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]] Extension of the Hypnotoad meme after the reveal of the Gen VI starters.[[/labelnote]]
* [=TM87=] memes [[labelnote:Explanation]][=TM87=] is the move Swagger in most games. Around the time "swag" entered the American lexicon, in came a ton of memes with "X has [=TM87=]" or "X used [=TM87=]". Another variant is "I got [=TM87=] cause I'm so [=HM02=]", [=HM02=] being Fly.[[/labelnote]]
* '''PERVERTED MEI/ROSA STRIKES AGAIN!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]] Due to a [[http://www.donmai.us/pools/6038 particular artist]] and few followers on the ImageBooru sites drawing a series of pictures of Mei/Rosa, the female protagonist of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', being portrayed as a perverted zoophile who goes around molesting Pokemon(so far just the 1st generation). While she doesn't outright harm them, she just can't keep her hands off of them. Obviously it's played for laughs, though the Pokemon themselves would disagree.[[/labelnote]]
* What the underground part of Diglett looks like. One common meme has Diglett standing up to reveal a huge, muscular body. Others feature [[EldritchAbomination]]s. The Cheezburger Pokememes page has one of these each 'Diglett Wednesday'.
* Sylveon's type is guessed on in memes to no end.
** Sylveon used Fly! *its ribbons begin whirling like a helicopter and it takes off*
** Comparing Sylveon to Gym Leader Skyla thanks to their uncanny resemblance.
* During one of the US presidential debates in 2012, a Twitter comment said it should be settled with a Pokemon battle. Cue meme of the [[http://p.twimg.com/A5YFb2WCIAAvmac.jpg candidates starting a battle]]. 'Romney would like to debate!"

* No es fake [[labelnote:Explanation]]Erupted during the waiting time of Gen VI. Hiro, one of the two leakers of the Gen V Pokedex and a Latin American. One of his screenshots contain the infamous word, and whenever someone tries to make a fake leak or even if he himself posts, someone is bound to post this quote. To add some silly stereotyping, they usually add a Ludicolo with the post.[[/labelnote]]
* Level 9 and under Reshiram/Zekrom: [[labelnote:Explanation:]] The impossible to get Pokemon that so many people ask for on the GTS, making trading harder.[[/labelnote]]
* "It's a [[WebVideo/GameGrumps Pumbloom!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation:]]A FanNickname for Whismur that originated on an episode of ''WebVideo/GameGrumps''. Has since become a running gag (especially on Pokemon's official Facebook page) response for whenever someone asks to guess the name of a certain Pokemon (or even non-Pokemon characters)[[/labelnote]]
** "Do you remember the time when Ash caught a Pumbloom? [[BigNo NO!]]"
* Random Lines Challenge. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A picture on Pokémemes mocking new Pokémon designs and names by saying random lines and blind typing were being used to create them. The community ran with it for a while, and a few of them became pretty popular. [[/labelnote]]
** [[http://cheezburger.com/7429241088 Someone has "won" that challenge.]]
* Crobatman and Robin/Fletchling: [[labelnote:Explanation:]] Surfaced after the reveal of the robin Pokemon, Fletchling.[[/labelnote]]
* "Hah! You better have Burn Heal!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The last line of Blaine's pre-battle speech in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. Sometimes used as a reaction image in response to a witty insult (or, a "BURN!")[[/labelnote]]
* Essentially anything related to the speculated new type being Fairy prior to the announcement.
** [[WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents FAIRY! TYPE!]] [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/736f00a5618c89a5d8526d99b2d4b094/tumblr_mo8p5mSU6e1r9u3gzo1_500.gif POKEMON!]]
* Sylveon the Dragon Slayer [[labelnote:Explanation]]When the Fairy-type was revealed to be added in Gen VI, and be super-effective against Dragon, many people made jokes about the cute and cuddly Fairy-types such as Sylveon and Jigglypuff defeating powerful Dragon-types. For instance, there's an influx of fanart showing Sylveon standing on top of a pile of fainted Dragon-type Pokémon[[/labelnote]]
** Because of this and the [[http://static.hypable.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Sylveon-vs-Hydregion-Pokemon.png official art]] showing Sylveon seemingly clashing with a Hydreigon, there's a budding {{Shipping}} between the two, with a rather meek/teasing Sylveon toying with an annoyed/cowering Hydreigon
** FIGHTING EVIL BY MOONLIGHT [[labelnote:Explanation:]]It also spawned this - as now people joke that Sylveon is in fact a MagicalGirl, and with the moon theme from the picture, and it showing off a moonlight themed damaging move, notes that she is Anime/SailorMoon. Oh and the other Eeveelutions are the Sailor Scouts, apparently.[[/labelnote]]
** [[MadnessMantra still not confirmed still not confirmed still not confirmed]] [[labelnote:Explanation:]]Shortly after the Fairy type revealing, [[https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/7578888960/hF4A4A06E/ this image]], showing a Website/{{Facebook}} discussion with various Dragon-types (and newly-[[{{Retcon}} retconned]]) Fairy-types) reacting to the news. Hydreigon, who is ''doubly'' weak to Fairy-type attacks, [[HeroicBSOD can only respond with the statement.]] It's also sometimes used when rumors involving the type or anything else come out.[[/labelnote]]
* Fletchling/Talonflame is r e l e n t l e s s.[[labelnote:Explanation:]]During Fletchling's reveal, fans noted its odd description of rather being relentless in attaching. This spawned various [[http://i.imgur.com/BTILoPO.jpg images]] of Fletchling being a KillerRabbit. Talonflame was introduced with the new animation Brave Bird, so people used it again.[[/labelnote]]
* You know what I don't like about this thing? It's just a fucking dog. That's it. They drew a real life dog and made it cartoony. Seriously, it looks like someone took my mom's dog and put it in the game. Older Pokemon actually had personalities to them. They had quirks that separated them from actual animals. This thing? It's. Just. A. DOG.[[labelnote:Explanation:]]The first time this was used, it was to complain about Herdier's design. Nowadays, it's used to parody complaints about every Pokemon ever, often substituting 'dog' for something else.[[/labelnote]]
** Because of this, Herdier is known in some places as 'my mom's dog'.
* They wanted me to battle, but I was born to [[DanceSensation DANCE!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Omastar's sprites in PokemonRedAndBlue and Green make it look like it's dancing. [[https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/7381013760/h5705D6D6/ A custom sprite]] that shows a dancing Omastar isn't helping matters.[[/labelnote]]
* A wild Nicki Minaj appeared! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jynx has often been compared (negatively) to the pop star, with her garish clothing and makeup, and Pokédex entries stating how her singing is unintelligible to humans.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Film/DumbAndDumber TEAM FLARE BOSS]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jim Carrey's [[http://www.costumesofnashua.com/CNWebSite105/Active905/Pages/CostumeRental/Austin60s70s/Pics%20Austin1970s/AustinDumbJC.jpg orange suit]] worn at one point in the movie has been compared to the Kalos villain team Team Flare, who wears... orange suits.[[/labelnote]]
* Mega [insert name of Mon here]. [[labelnote: Explanation]] With the reveal of "Mega Evolutions" coming for Generation VI, many fans have been adding "Mega" to every Pokemon name. Such as [[RepetitiveName MegaMeganium]] for instance. [[/labelnote]]
** Yanmega (Megayanma in Japan) and Meganium were Mega before it was cool.
** Adding "Mega" to sundry {{Game Breaker}}s, such as Mega Garchomp and Mega Terrakion. Became HilariousInHindsight now that Garchomp indeed has an Mega Evolution... that's slower than regular Garchomp.
* Due to Mega Ampharos's looks, there have been variations of calling the Pokémon's name, from Amfabulous to [[{{Fabio}} Amfabio]].
** Also, Mega Ampharos in advert of L'oreal.
** More like Mega Am''phabulous''.
* YOU CAN SIT ON BENCHES! [[labelnote:Explanation]]In one of the X/Y trailers, it showcased the player sitting down on a bench for a brief second; fans have taken to jokingly hailing this as the greatest innovation the series has ever produced.[[/labelnote]]
* Shiny Garchomp. [[labelnote:Explanation]]When people bring up shiny colorations of certain Pokémon, expect to see Garchomp brought up. Shiny Garchomp looks [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/c/c5/Spr_5b2_445_m_s.png nearly identical]] to [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/1/19/Spr_5b_445_m.png standard Garchomp]], except for being a slight shade darker. It's often seen as an example of "bad" shiny colors.[[/labelnote]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BftrqE2CQiQ Go Go Mega Rangers!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The music in that trailer as well as the final shot with all five of them Mega Evolving (sans Blaziken) have people say it being similar to PowerRangers, or even being joked as Series/DenjiSentaiMegaranger. Blaziken is apparently the SixthRanger.[[/labelnote]]
* Sneaky Pebbles.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A nickname for Stealth Rock, an ''extremely'' widespread move which has drawn ire for rendering many Pokémon unviable in battle. Many other nicknames have been made, often with AddedAlliterativeAppeal (Secret Silicates, Furtive Flint, etc.) Comes up a lot in discussions about [[TierInducedScrappy Charizard]], a Pokémon whose crippling weakness to Sneaky Pebbles has become memetic in its own right.[[/labelnote]]
* Pokemon fusion pictures, ever since the Alex's Pokemon Fusion site went up.
* "When is the Dark-type going to get a Gym?" [[labelnote:Explanation]] For five generations in a row since its debut so far, Dark is the ''only'' type to never get a gym of its own. As a result, expect many jokes of Dark's ButtMonkey status to come up whenever a new region's gym leader lineup is being discussed and the anger/lack of surprise when Dark fails to be on the list.[[/labelnote]]
* Goomy is love. Goomy is life. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The fandom exploded upon seeing Goomy, that this quote is often repeated.[[/labelnote]]
** [[Webcomic/{{Dolan}} goomy pls]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Mutation of the popular Dolan meme quote: "gooby pls"[[/labelnote]]
* GENWUN: Cross-pollinated from the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' fandom term "GEEWUN", this is used to mock anyone who thinks the first generation (''Red'', ''Blue'', and ''Yellow'') was the best and that any other generation sucks.
* You don't have enough badges to train me! (Usually with an image of a rampaging animal)[[labelnote:Explanation]] Based on the mechanic of the games where Pokemon that have not been caught by the player will disobey upon reaching certain levels, until the player character gets the required number of gym badges to make them obey.[[/labelnote]]
* Professor Sycamore from ''X'' and ''Y'' and his [[http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/3986/r360.jpg uncanny resemblance]] to the teacher from the anime ''Anime/KillLaKill''.
** He's also a common visual headcanon for [[Podcast/WelcomeToNightvale Nightvale's]] beautiful and perfect scientist Carlos.
* Espurr and its [[http://i.imgur.com/aw2RKfW.png interesting]] [[http://i.imgur.com/0Jyd683.png expressions]] quickly shot up to meme status after it was first put into Pokemon-amie.
** Espurr [[HeroicBSOD BSOD]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5mbL0pPV84 eyes]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xH54WN7Pwbc too]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdcYIDSY23A with]] some NightmareFuel.
* WHEN YOU WALK AWAY [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Klefki, a key ring Pokémon, was first leaked onto the Internet, a certain ImageBoard got a little carried away with the ''KingdomHearts'' jokes.[[/labelnote]]
* Pokémon Amie has become notorious for the ways in which some Pokémon receive maximum petting happiness may [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/417180d09d4373a9e2bf38d5556297e6/tumblr_muob7tDlyu1qj24qmo1_500.jpg look a bit like inappropriate touching]].
* Masterball mega Electrode [[labelnote:Explanation]]a popular fakemon meme since the announcement of Mega Evolution depicts Mega Electrode looking like a Master Ball.[[/labelnote]]
* Espurr's terrifying unblinking stare is making it go memetic, photoshopped into horror film trailers or with OminousLatinChanting playing over footage of it.
* Professor Sexymore [[labelnote:Explanation]]Professor Sycamore's good looks turned him into a MemeticSexGod in the fandom.[[/labelnote]]
* Looker is the [[TheNthDoctor 10th Doctor]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Fans have noticed Looker's resemblance to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' character.[[/labelnote]]
* Jingle jingle, [[PrecisionFStrike Motherfucker]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]While the entire Fairy typing is notorious for being a bunch of cute Dragon killers, special mention goes to Klefki for being a tiny Pokemon based off a key ring, of all things.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywDDWGyqhT4 Diggersby tho?]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]In response to comments that Diggersby has weak stats (which it technically does), a guy on stream spends a good ten minutes chatting with his friend about hot awesome its design is.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36Bf7roDli8 Spamming Lysandre/Fleur-De-Lis' face in BGMs]] is becoming notable in Japan.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iFTR807_Gk Ghetsis/G-Cis!]]
* Snorlax took six generations/17 years to get up. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Lining all of Snorlax's sprites over the years up side by side makes it look like it's trying to stand, and its Gen VI sprite is standing.[[/labelnote]]
* Pokemon Bank will never be released. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The extended delays while Pokemon Bank was being released lead to comment that it was never going to happen at all.[[/labelnote]]
** Please understand. [[labelnote:Explanation]]This phrase, already memetically associated with previous Nintendo delay apologies, wound up being particularly connected to this one.[[/labelnote]]
** ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ give bank [[labelnote:Explanation]]The usual response to "Please Understand" when it doesn't already precede it.[[/labelnote]]
* Welfare Pokemon [[labelnote:Explanation]] Sometimes, you'll be given the opportunity to gain non-starter Pokemon without catching or trading, or even utilizing special events; the NPC just gives them to you. This is especially apparent in X and Y, where it's possible to make almost an ''entire team'' of welfare mons.[[/labelnote]]
* "It's been 3,000 years..." [[labelnote:Explanation]] The scene from [[spoiler: the ending of X and Y, where AZ finally reunites with his Floette]] has been used to make jokes about the release of either the Hoenn remakes or Pokémon Bank or the long-delayed Flipnote 3D, poking fun at how long fans have been waiting for them.[[/labelnote]]
* [[CriticalResearchFailure Slurpuff is a Counter to Mega Kangaskhan]][[labelnote:Explanation]]A quote from Verlisify, a... [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment controversial figure in the Pokemon community]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GQo1oSccNI In an interview with The Flaming Spade]] he says this as a justification for why Mega Kangaskhan isn't broken, despite [[YouKeepUsingThatWord misusing the word counter]] (Slurpuff cannot switch into any attack from Mega Kangaskhan and threaten it OHKO it before getting OHKO'd itself) and ignoring the fact that Mega Kangaskhan has consistently proven its GameBreaker status in the Singles format by being able to [[TotalPartyKill steamroll through entire teams]] [[OneManArmy by itself with little to no team support]] and [[CripplingOverspecialization forcing players to run obscure counters that have no use outside of ''trying'' to kill Mega Kangaskhan]] [[UselessUsefulSpell (which can easily fail at their job)]]. The phase is often quoted to point out Verlisify's [[CasualCompetitiveConflict (and sometimes casual players')]] lack of knowledge and understanding of how competitive Pokemon works.[[/labelnote]]
* *TRUMPETS* [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald soundtrack features massive amounts of trumpets everywhere. They're so omnipresent that their association with the Hoenn games has become memetic.[[/labelnote]]
* RIP Tabitha 2002-2014. [[labelnote:Explanation]][[http://pokebeach.com/news/0614/oras-corocoro-4.jpg The new Aqua and Magma admin redesigns]] became notorious for [[YouDontLookLikeYou bearing little resemblance to their pre-remake selves.]] [[http://i.imgur.com/C8jzjvx.png Magma Admin Tabitha is often noted to have had the most strikingly different]] redesign.[[/labelnote]]

* Any mention of PokemonSpeak in the anime is now bound to bring up people mentioning [[PokemonSpeak Hodor]] from ''Series/AGameOfThrones'' and treating him as if he was a Pokémon himself.

** WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBUFFET! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jessie's Wobbuffet has a habit of interrupting everything; a bit of a LostInTranslation moment for Western audiences who don't know the Japanese sitcom actor it references, but it's still downright weird enough to gain infamy in the West.[[/labelnote]]
** [[IncomingHam "Prepare for trouble!" "Make it double!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The first line of the Team Rocket trio's original motto, which is incredibly popular with fans. At times, Team Rocket would even reflexively break out into the motto if they heard the word "trouble."[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngovaH86VVU "We'll be the richest rogues of all time" / "Creators of a grand design" / "I'll be the King" / "I'll be the queen!" / "I'll be the joker... of crime."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Team Rocket's song in "2BA Master".[[/labelnote]]
* [[ScrewTheRulesIHavePlot Pikachu!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhizueubBFw The horn!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ash has a battle against a Blaine's Rhydon, and Pikachu attacks it in a way (shocking it on the horn) that apparently bypasses its ground-type immunity to electric attacks. This is impossible in the games, though it was later referenced when Rhydon was given the ability "Lightning Rod".[[/labelnote]]
* Gary was here. Ash is a loser. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In one episode, Ash reads a sign that says this.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1JMF6AVUUs Yo, fuckin' Snorlax owns in this movie!]] He's saving ALL THE POKEMON! He's more ripped than you, man! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some Guys commenting on the short from the second Pokémon movie in a very comedic way.[[/labelnote]]

* Ash's Charizard defeated Blaine's Magmar '''''[[http://www.pokemopolis.net/episodes/indigo/059.htm IN THE VERY HEART OF THE VOLCANO ITSELF!]]''''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ash's 7th Kanto Gym battle against a Fire-type Gym Leader inside a volcano.[[/labelnote]]

* [[EarWorm I wanna be the very best / Like no-one ever was /]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfX0tIaExmM To catch them is my real test / To train them is my cause!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The English theme song of the first season of the ''Pokémon'' anime.[[/labelnote]]
* "Who's that Pokémon?!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A line from the EyeCatch of seasons 1-6 and 14 onward, which as a sort of a guessing game involving the silhouette of a Pokémon. Used in any context to question the identity of a shadowy figure, or to parody the original eyecatches.[[/labelnote]]
** [[NoIndoorVoice IT'S]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMtlAqgvtZ4 PIKACHU.]] [[spoiler:It's Koffing!]] GODDAMMIT! AAAAAAAAAAAAA [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some Guy watching the "Who's that Pokémon" segment of the anime, makes a wrong guess at what Pokémon it is, and screams.[[/labelnote]]
** It's RickRoll.
** "It's a Jigglypuff seen from above!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]From an episode where Ash, Jesse, and James took a test that, among other things, asked them to identify a Pokemon from a single round shadow. They guess a Voltorb, Pokeball, and an Electrode, respectively, and all fail.[[/labelnote]]
* [[CriticalResearchFailure Trainers, which one of these Pokémon evolves into Seviper? Okay trainers, if you guessed Arbok,]] [[BlatantLies you were right!]]
** '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cwDNk9ZvJ0 WRONG!]]''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]From season 6-8 of the ''Pokémon'' anime, 4Kids created their own "Who's that Pokémon?"-esque eyecatches that usually had wrong or confusing information. Oh, and Arbok does ''NOT'' evolve. For that matter, neither does Seviper. The mistake may have resulted from someone not paying close enough attention to the episode in which Jessie ''releases'' her Arbok and then ''catches'' a Seviper.[[/labelnote]]
* Giovanni achieved status as a MemeticBadass for apparently punching out a Blissey, and because "not even an orgy is enough to satisfy his libido".
** Anything Giovanni does, such as [[MundaneUtility using a Lotad as a water basin for his teeth]], going surfing with Pokémon, or being on a playground ride is accompanied by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NisCkxU544c LIKE A BOSS!]] in huge letters.

** "Who wants rice balls?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another response to painting over the rice balls with other foods. Pictures of characters holding sandwiches or doughnuts are usually accompanied by such captions.[[/labelnote]]
* RING RING RING! RING RING RING! PHONE CALL! PHONE CALL! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The ringtone of the Ketchum household phone in Episode 2.[[/labelnote]]
* '''''[[LargeHam BYRON]] LOVES [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Rwxm46Ff-w THINGS]]!''''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Byron loves a lot of things. On that note, the linked video is a parody of a DiscoveryChannel advertising campaign.[[/labelnote]]
** '''I LOVE BASTIODON!''' *background explosion*
*** '''USE IRON DEFENSE!''' *background explosion*
** '''I LOVE MY WIFE!''' *background explosion*
** '''WHAT A PERFECTLY DUG HOLE!'''
* ''Remarkable!'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The CatchPhrase of Mr. Sukizo, one on the Pokémon Contest judges.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evr32LAdTMU Ash steals a motto]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A scene from "Classroom Training" where Candice asks Ash what his motto is, and someone puts the audio of someone else's motto (for instance, Team Rocket) over his actual dialogue.[[/labelnote]]
* In the early 2000s or so, ''the'' meme amongst Team Rocket fans was "I WANT A DOUGHNUT". It was considered James's catchphrase (even though he only said it once), and led to [[TrademarkFavouriteFood him being associated with doughnuts in general]], especially jelly doughnuts. It even spawned a short webcomic, ''The Adventures of James and the Slightly Obese Cop with the Doughnuts'', in which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin James used various disguises and tricks to steal doughnuts from a policeman]].
** A link, if one exists, would be worthy of worship.
** There was also a RunningGag that James' boots were magical, because both times he kicked a Pokémon while wearing them, that Pokémon evolved immediately afterward.
* '''PIKACHU RAN THE LASER TO VICTORY''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]A combination attack with Pikachu's Volt Tackle and Piplup's Hydro Pump.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/8610/1285335409464.jpg Pikachu in a highchair.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A scene from the second episode of Best Wishes of... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Pikachu in a high chair.]][[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=264 PIKAFIELD!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Crossover with ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}''.[[/labelnote]]
* The TriangleShades that Ash's Squirtle wears [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann sure look familiar]]. [[http://loyalkng.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/160029-kamina35_super.jpg Yep,]] [[http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs38/f/2008/338/8/b/Squirtle_Sqaud_Kamina_by_webslinger9.jpg they]] [[http://loyalkng.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/160005-kamina10_super.jpg sure]] [[http://ui32.gamespot.com/127/kamina61_2.gif do.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bXYKtgfMkw AND YOUR GALOSHES, TOO!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A prominent line featured in the English opening of ''Pokemon Chronicles''.[[/labelnote]]
* [[GratuitousEnglish "IT'S TASTING TIME!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The CatchPhrase of Cilan, a Unova Gym Leader.[[/labelnote]]
** Because of Cilan's food gimmick and the fact that his Pokémon look like food (Pansage looks like it has head-broccoli), there are dozens of threads claiming that [[EatTheDog he plans to eat his Pokémon.]]
* [[AccidentalMisnaming The name's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUUq58cyY9o PINGAS!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Butch, a member of Team Rocket and rival to the familiar Team Rocket trio, has had his name misremembered by everyone else ever since his second appearance. The rest... is YouTubePoop. More precisely, an ''AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' meme spawned from [=YouTube=] Poops.[[/labelnote]]
* Pikachu and [[TrademarkFavoriteFood ketchup]]. Seemingly forgotten ([[WildMassGuessing or maybe not]]) by the writers, but not [[NeverLiveItDown by the fans]].
* How many fanarts have depicted Ash as the ChickMagnet while Brock cries his heart out in the background? TOO MANY.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F19gFFU1LJc Fruit Salad, yummy yummy! Fruit Salad, yummy yummy!!]] (The song is from TheWiggles though.)
* ''Best Wishes'' episode 14 seems to have spawned a minor meme among Japanese artists. Specifically, where Cilan gets possessed by a Yamask mask. There are a hilarious number of "Dentomasu" pictures floating around.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5i6So-hGaA A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, and these men are gonna do it with or without a beautiful girl at their side!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]DP episode 2: Brock just got his heart broken by the girl he was hitchiking with, and he tells her that he's gonna travel with Ash now. The rest is AccidentalInnuendo.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuBefhp5aNg&feature=related I'm very glad you asked me that Ash, because I think there's a way you can help me...]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]There's an episode where a Pokémon circus needs a replacement for their lazy Mr. Mime, and Brock asks Ash to do it, by dressing him up as said Mr. Mime. When he says this line, though, Brock makes what can only be called a rape face. [[FreudWasRight You can guess where this is going.]][[/labelnote]]
* The nineteenth episode of BW led to many pictures of Cilan looking evil. Pictures of him laughing over a traumatized Cabernet or [[http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/2505/justasplannedn.jpg looking smug]] have led to many Manga/DeathNote jokes. [[BlackComedyRape Not to mention, jokes about him raping a traumatized, crying Cabernet]].
** Before that, there were many jokes about Cilan being secretly evil (such as him stealing Ash's egg and replacing it with a fake, eating his Pokémon). This episode "confirmed" it.
* For some reason, [[http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/2473/099k.jpg this image]] of Paul drinking orange juice (from DP episode 100, ''Aiding the Enemy!'') has become something of a meme in Japan. Search "Shinji" on any Japanese fanart site and you're bound to find tons of pictures of Paul sippin' OJ. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Japan, Orange Juice is, to put it simple, a children's drink. So they're probobly veiwing it as a sole example of his childishness.[[/labelnote]]
* Leo Burnett and 4Kids are [[TheDevil the devil]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A so-called subliminal message in a scene where [[OnceAnEpisode James is in the mouth of his Victreebel]] played backwards.[[/labelnote]]
** Could also be because of [[{{macekre}} 4Kids' standard operating procedure]].
* According to the [[GameplayAndStorySegregation Pokédex]], Alakazam's IQ is [[DragonBall OVER]] [[PowerLevels FIVE]] [[MemeticMutation THOUSAAAAAAND!!!]]
* Dento/Cilan isn't gay. He's FABULOUS. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Or in reference to ANY of the Trial Triangle, really. Dent's just the one most immediately associated with it. They're young, well-dressed, effeminate males who work at a battle cafe. Do the math.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvK0QnRyau0#t=0m12s Sexy Gabite]] now shows up way too often in YoutubePoop.
* Thanks to [=BW010=], fans begin to call Trip's Servine a [[CombatSadomasochist masochist]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Trip's Servine was hit by Ash's Snivy's (who is female) Attract. While most Pokémon gain hearts in their eyes when they are hit by it, the fact that Ash told his Snivy to use [[WhipitGood Vine Whip]] and the fact that the hearts in Servine's eyes got bigger after the attack... Not to mention he's still smiling when he fainted.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMPkyRUc3DQ Venustoise]]. Probably the most well known fake Pokémon, due to it actually being in the anime as an illusion.
* [[http://anime-motivational-posters.tumblr.com/post/13821617901/ash-ketchum-hes-an-ass-man Ash Ketchum... he's an ass man.]] (Link {{NSFW}})
* "You can't do this. ''I won't let you.''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie, Ash delivers this line to Mewtwo, who created a legion of cloned Pokémon from other trainers, easily dismantled their Pokémon (including Ash's) and announced his plans to, essentially, wipe out human civilization. Despite being horribly outgunned against [[GameBreaker the most powerful Pokémon at the time]], [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Ash]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome still]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome chooses to stand up to him]].[[/labelnote]]
* '''YOUR PENIS'''. Be quiet or Brock will steal it. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Brock being a LoveFreak and MemeticMolester comes from a panel of a {{Hentai}} doujinshi, where Ash freaks out about his erection (not understanding what is happening), and Misty silences him with this threat.[[/labelnote]]
* "I'll use this frying pan... as a drying pan!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A pun where Brock uses a frypan as a makeshift umbrella became something of a MadLibsCatchphrase, substituting frying pan and drying pan for two other similar turns of phrase which rhyme, always accompanied by [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lufaga31Dz1r210lp.gif a gif of Brock using his frying pan as... well, a drying pan.]][[/labelnote]]
* Ash sent in a million postcards to get that hat.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFgfPAcYWT8 Officer Jenny Is An Idiot.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Officer Jenny and her twin Officer Jenny notice Team Rocket escaping in a balloon. One of the Jennys summons their Growlithe to use flamethrower on the balooon. The problem? Jenny calls it ''Arcanine''...[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzfg0aBE19Y I AM A FLAMING MOLTRES!!!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]In one episode, James's horoscope reads him as a Moltres. He does...this because of that. Popular due to Jessie's line below, used as evidence for [[AmbiguouslyGay James's homosexuality.]] [[/labelnote]]
** [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar I think that outfit came right out of his closet.]]
* After the blackout at the 2013 Super Bowl, many fans have joked about the cause being Team Rocket, due to the trio's [[DynamicEntry Dynamic Entries]].
* "I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines you who are." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Mewtwo during his HeelRealization at the end of the first movie; completely different to the movie's "[[{{Anvilicious}} fighting is wrong]]" moral up until now. Note that is completely relevant to the movie's moral in the Japanese version, but this line was left as is in the dub anyway.[[/labelnote]]
* "He has two badges!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A reference to the [[BlindIdiotTranslation terrible]] quality of early subtitles of ''[[Anime/PokemonOrigins Pokemon Origins]]'', which, among other mistakes (Professor Oak being Green's uncle, "there" to "their", etc.) mistranslated a line to say that Red has earned two badges, despite him clearly shown having three.[[/labelnote]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=EAdGv89e0sE AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The terrifying, agonized scream Red's Charmander makes when it gets bitten in the neck by Green's Squirtle in the Origins OVA.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CmlICkrdo0 Red's Jolteon fails at life]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Rhyhorn defeated Jolteon with Thundershock, even though Jolteon's ability Volt Absorb should have rendered it immune to electric attacks. Note, though, that Gen I, which ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' is based on, didn't have abilities.[[/labelnote]]
* Celebi is now called the Onion Fairy in some circles, thanks to [[http://crobat.co.vu/post/61210621499 this tumblr post]].
* [[http://i.imgur.com/5NwnNIM.png Red]] [[http://i.imgur.com/qL8Q4un.jpg is]] [[http://i.imgur.com/MMmQQFa.jpg better]] [[http://kotaku.com/why-is-ash-from-pokemon-such-a-looser-1440544226 than]] Ash!
* Who is gonna win da Ashbowl? [[labelnote:Explanation]]A recurring joke where every notable female character in ''XY'' has a thing for Ash and each of them are competing for his affection.[[/labelnote]]
* A logo changes everything. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Use of the logo of Brazzers to make certain stills from the anime look almost pornographic, or otherwise bring up jizz/sex/tying people up jokes.[[/labelnote]]
** Serena is really changing the tone of the anime. [[labelnote:Explanation]](In)appropriate use of captions and the aforementioned Brazzers logo makes it look like Serena is repeatedly getting up to all sorts of inappropriate things, particularly things made to look like bondage.[[/labelnote]]
** [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderizing]] Serena into a ClingyJealousGirl bordering on {{Yandere}} is popular on sites like Cheezburger.
* Dj'ohlt! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jolteon's cry in the anime sounds much like [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]]'s catchphrase.[[/labelnote]]
