Pokemon Starter Vid

Pokémon is a gaming culture phenomenon, with legions of fans that can readily recite 'mon names and abilities without a pause for breath. For newcomers or those that haven't been there and seen it all, however, picking a starter 'mon can be a tough call.

What that brings is a funny skit that pokes fun at each character, though we suspect you Pokémon veterans will have a thing or two to say about these characterisations...
