Pokemon Go! recently updated so that a user can now choose one of their Pokemon as a companion as they walk around playing the game. We don’t know if any of these famous people are playing Pokemon Go, but we think we have a pretty good idea of who their buddies would be:
1. Ta-Nehisi Coates – Metapod.
I went to look at my Metapod’s stats and it said, “Your only attacks are STRUGGLE and HARDEN.” This guy is clearly a low-key literary genius.
2. Taylor Swift – Jigglypuff
Adorable, a good singer, but ultimately untrustworthy.
4. Barack Obama – Meowth.
A witty, detached voice of reason who always finds himself working with and abetting incompetent villains.
5. Neil DeGrasse Tyson – Psyduck.
Having an impossible amount of knowledge in his brain has turned him into a ridiculous goof.
6. Kelsey Grammer – Cubone, because the reasons he’s a pompous weirdo are actually really sad.
7. Donald Trump – Muk
I fought a Muk in the game once and it threw a damn trash can at me. Like, how is that even allowed? He’s seemingly unstoppable despite just being a pile of slime.
