Here’s The Thing Episode 17: Pokemon Fan Theories, Guest Starring Bulbasaur [Video]
If our weekly Ask Chris column isn’t enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here’s The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he dives into comics history to explain why you’re wrong and he’s right.
This week, Chris is joined by special guest Bulbasaur for a chat aboutPokémon, fan theories, “headcanon” and why so much of it is focused on this one game for tiny children.
- More information about the Gengar/Clefairy fan theory can be found in Chris’ article about the Ten Most Disturbing Pokédex Entries.
- Check out the origins of fandom’s obsession with “canon”: Sherlock Holmes.
- For just a taste of how deep this fan theory rabbit hole goes, here’s Bulbapedia’s section on theories of just what the words “Pokémon Master” mean.
