"What!? MEME is evolving!"
Advertisement:

Pokémon 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, especially with nerds.

The spawning of memes was inevitable. Gotta mutate 'em all!

The Cheezburger network has a page dedicated to these, with new ones every day: Pokememes

Smogon is something of a Fountain of Memes as far as fansites go. Memes originating from Smogon are listed here. The same applies to Twitch Plays Pokémon: its memes can be found here.

  • Crobatman and Robin/Fletchling. Explanation 
  • 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.

  • Still no bottlenose dolphin Pokémon. Explanation 
  • Larry. spoilers

  • Ultra Beasts don't look like Pokémon! Explanation 
  • Sun and Moon's Bizarre Adventure. Explantion 
    • Thanks to a certain technique for hatching eggs, jokes about the Steel Ball Run have been cracked. It certainly helps that the protagonist will strike a 「Pose」 if you spin them in place for a little, that one of the potentially strongest Steel-type moves that involves spinning to inflict tremendous damage is called the 「Gyro Ball」, and that you need to perform the 「Egg-Hatching Spin」 on the back of a Tauros, rather like how Johnny's Spin is best done from horseback.

    • Because of this and the 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.
      • A popular strategy in ORAS was to teach the move Hyper Voice to a Sylveon with its Hidden Ability Pixilate. That Ability turned any Normal-type move into a Fairy-type move, on top of making it even stronger. So yes, Sylveon could kill Dragons simply by shouting at them loud enough, just like the Dovahkiin.

  • The reveal of the now grown up versions of Red and Blue as Bonus Bosses in Sun and Moon led to multiple jokes, the most common one among shippers being that the boys are married and visiting Alola on their honeymoon.
    • Related to the above, there are quite a few jokes about how Leaf note  is a non-canon protagonist and gets no love from the Pokémon Company. Fanart of a grown-up version of her has been making the rounds.
    • Another one is accompanying their presence with the lyrics to "The Boys Are Back in Town".
  • Lusty Alolan MaidExplanation 
  • Lusamine is MOM OF THE YEARExplanation (Contains Spoilers!)

Videos including Gladion, Lillie, or Lusamine dancing will have comments mentioning that's why Lusamine's kids left her or why their dad disappeared.
  • Jokes about Gladion being a Chuunibyou or Emo Teen are popular.
  • Similarly to Alola Region's Exeggutor, Alola's Dugtrio is a big source of amusement too... thanks to its gorgeous long blonde hair. The crossovers with He-Man's HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA just write themeselves.

  • Dynamax WailordExplanation 
    • Gigantamax WailordExclamation

  • Great Blue Wolf Zacian. Explanation 
  • "THIEVUL, NO THIEVING!"Explanation

  • In the early 2000s or so, the meme amongst Team Rocket fans was "I WANT A DOUGHNUT."

    • 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.

  • wololololololoExplanation 
  • Because of Mega Charizard Y's lack of screentime (especially compared to its X counterpart), and that Ash's XY team has yet to be complete, many seem to think that Mega-Zard Y is being saved for when Ash's own Charizard shows up. And there were just as many fanarts that pitted Charizard-Y against Alain's Charizard-X.
  • Every Bonnie-focused episode is usually associated with Bonnie suffering emotionally, or someone else suffering emotionally. And thus whenever a future Bonnie-focused episode is announced, people will immediately know what to expect.
