Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson chatting to IMDb

Ever since Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrived in cinemas back in 2017, fans of the series have been quick to express their - shall we say - passionate feelings towards it. Some love it just as much as any other Star Wars movie, but taking a wander through any corner of the internet dedicated to the series reveals that there are plenty who aren't afraid to shout about their frustrations with it, too.

With its sequel, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker launching this week, heated conversation is as prevalent as ever, and The Last Jedi's director Rian Johnson seems to have left a subtle(ish) reaction online. Interestingly, he appears to have chosen the not-so-common medium of Pokémon GO to do just that. Check out this post below:

That's right, after catching a Shadow version of the Poison-type Sludge Pokémon, Grimer, Johnson decided to give it the nickname 'Discourse' before grabbing a screenshot for the world to see. Is it a hint that he finds the discourse surrounding the films to be pretty toxic at the moment? We'd say so.

No caption was submitted with the screengrab, but the image paints a pretty clear picture without.
