Weirdness: Slowpoke Reggae Exists, and it's Terrifying

Posted by Karen Halloran

Kind of catchy, still nightmare inducing

Everyone's Friday jut got a little weirder with the official Pokémon YouTube channel's latest post, a nearly four minute reggae epic of Slowpoke doing Slowpoke things like attempting to swallow other Slowpokes' tails, Busby Berkeley water number-style:

One theory states that this video is related to an online Slowpoke-themed fishing game. Another potentially more plausible theory holds that Nintendo and Game Freak may well be under the control of the Illuminati lizard men and are performing an experiment to see if it's possible to mellow humans' emotions while inducing a feeling of low-level fright.

It's certainly not the first instance of odd Pokémon music, and we're sure it won't be the last.

Comment, you know you want to. The Braviary flies at midnight.

Is it wrong that at first the video almost made me sick, but soon I was laughing and started to love slowpokes more than ever? ^_^;
(Why I have the bad feeling I just got brainwashed... )

There's apparently (according to an add, so take this with a pinch of salt) a big reggae and R&B trend going on in Japan, maybe this has something to do with it?

I thought it was kinda cute...except for the ring of human centipede slowpokes.

I love it! I just wish I understood something besides 'Yadon', its Japanese name.

Like a number of others, I too read it was a Reggie Slowpoke. Can someone with Photoshop skills help us out here?

I don't think I've ever seen anything that can be such a perfect mix of terrifying and entertaining. Leave it to Game Freak to change that!

I didn't find anything remotely scary, it was more adorable. That blank stare, I can look at it for days man! Reggae all day Slowpoke!



ShadJV said:

What... What did I just watch? Seriously, I couldn't even look away, it was like some bizarre brainwashing video... I just... I'M SO CONFLICTED NOW, I DON'T KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS!

To clarify, this is the end of a Slowpoke's Paradise promotion that has been on the official Daisuki Club which focused all upon Slowpoke. It provided streams of episodes, wallpapers etc. and culminated in Slowpoke Day on August 10th.

Hahaha, wow. I would totally have a Slowpoke and a Munchlax if I was in the Pokémon world and we'd just chill all day listening to tunes and whatnot. XD

Come on virtual reality Pokémon! Lol

Okay, they're taking a really long time to get over here.
