Zero Punctuation Skewers Pokemon Black and White

Well, technically, just Pokemon White, but they are the same game with minor variations.

I don’t suppose it will be tough to guess how Yahtzee views the game.


Yes, it is the usual Yahtzee routine.  He goes after the tropes of the Pokemon series which, admittedly, does follow a pretty set pattern game after game, and is set in a world where everybody is obsessed by Pokmeon.  There are no uninterested bystanders.


Since WordPress.com won’t let me embed video in the format that they use over at The Escapist, you will have to go here to view the actual video.

If you have never played Pokemon, the video makes for a cynical but surprisingly accurate description of the game.

And if you are a fan of Pokemon, you will either laugh a lot or be deeply offended, as he does share his opinion about the type of people who play Pokemon.

I laughed.  Your mileage may vary.
