Pokémon’s huge reach means that in Japan, it appears everywhere—plastered over trains, on food, on clothes, and in all sorts of toys and plushies and whatnot. That’s not the crazy part.

We've seen the Houses Great and Small of Game of Thrones become modern-day companies, but now it's the turn of classic Gen-1 Pokémon to get the slick modern logo treatment by design company Pictogram.
Pokemon: to catch them all, you have to have two of everything—two Game Boys, two (slightly different) copies of the same game and, if you're lucky, a friend to play with. Trading monsters was addictive, fun and included forced social interaction! Well, it used to: someone just built an Arduino so he could trade…

A fake, completely unofficial and totally illegal port of Pokemon popped up on the App Store the other day and has been blazing through the App Store, even reaching the height of #2 in Top Paid apps. The problem? It doesn't even work.

Children who want to level up their monsters in two new Pokémon remakes will still need to wander around aimlessly for hours on end, but this time that wandering will be in real life.
