Pretty much everyone around the globe is talking about it. It’s the talk of the office, it’s the talk of most offices actually, and school yards, and restaurants, and pretty much anywhere were relatively young people go to gather (and a few where they don’t). Everywhere you go people are talking about Pokemon Go!
It’s no secret that Pokemon Go is hot right now. It’s like Magmar hot, which is pretty dang hot. People have flocked to many Poke Stop over the past few weeks (HAVE YOU BEEN TO GRIESBAH YET?!) West Edmonton Mall is overrun with people walking blindly with their faces glued to their phones with no real regard of their surroundings which… is actually pretty much the norm for West Ed. You’ve even had people playing while driving. Could you imagine riding down Jasper Ave in your 2016 Jeep Cherokee scanning around for a Drowzee? Seems highly dangerous.
All these people congregating, out getting exercise, all share the same goal. They want to become a Pokemon Master. And who wouldn’t?! But it’s not all Squirtle smiles and the complete adorableness that is Pikachu. Some of them, well, they’re not exactly the type of thing I wanna hang with, you know?
With that, here’s a list of the top 5 Worst Pokemon to take on a road trip:
THE WORST –
No one likes the kind of travel buddy that just sleeps the entire time on the back seat of your vehicle. One of the best parts of road trips is having a co-pilot that is willing and able to provide you with proper entertainment, not one that requires constant use of the Poke Flute to wake him up. Also, he’d probably eat all your snacks before you got off the Anthony Henday.
The only thing worse than the co-pilot that sleeps the entire drive is one that complains. Looking at Psyduck, there’s no chance that this dude doesn’t get car sick. Not to mention he suffers from constant headaches so he’s going to be whining in your ear the entire drive. Do you really want to listen to PSYYYYYYYDUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK over and over and over again on your way to the lake. No. No one wants that. Not ever.
Okay, falling asleep and complaining are bad, but there is worse. The last thing you want is when you’ve got your music blaring, belting out Natalie Umbrulia’s Torn or my personal favorite, It’s Raining Men (either version), is to have your co-pilot join along and have their singing lull you to sleep. It’s not exactly a result you want. Although, if you can somehow teach your Jigglypuff to drive, you can put on their favorite track and just sleep away the ride. Might be not too bad in that regard.
This dude (or girl? Whatever it is) is just straight up creepy. Most Pokemon are cute and cuddling or fierce and intimidating, often landing somewhere in between on that spectrum but Mr. Mime is well, just look at him. What’s his deal? He’s the type of passenger that rides in the back seat even though the passenger seat is open. You can fully expect to be driving along, minding your own business and receive a dry Mr. Mime’s finger in the ear or something else weird. Not to mention he’s not much of a talker…
Muk/ Grimer / koffing / wheezing / Gloom
These guys just flat out suck. They stink, they look sticky, or slimey, and honestly, their voices are all just horrible annoying. Also, I’d like to point out that the names Koffing and Wheezing are highly offensive to those of us that suffer from Asthma. It would be a constant reminder that we can’t breathe, all while sucking in the guys’ noxious scents for an extended period of time. The worst.
