#WTFWednesday (08/17/16) : Gotta Pun 'em All!

With the recent launching of Pokemon GO in the Philippines, everyone in the Smark Henry staff went off to become what they have always dreamed to be: a goddamn Pokemon Trainer. Although some of us are double (or triple) the age of when Ash started his Pokemon journey, that didn't deter us from living our childhood dreams. The call was too great. And then we realized something: we can give our Pokemon nicknames.

And as responsible and mature adults, we decided to make puns. You knew it was bound to happen.

So here we go!

1. Gastly

Where's the pic, though?

2. Poliwrath

Well, he IS some sort of animal.

3. Paras 

(Gotta admit, though, JDL had better puns for this)
4. Squirtle

(Could also have used Sunny, but we want to be PG-13)

Of coooooooourse, we had to show some love for our very own PWR Superstars.

5. Exeggcute

We're likely 10 events away from Barangay Trabajadores

6. Eevee 

With evolutions as colorful as the Pride Flag

7. Vaporeon

And now we know where the mist for his entrance comes from

8. Rattata

9. Jolteon

Bakit 1hp?

10. Zubat


11. Pinsir

Something's missing...

(This is called going the extra mile)

Yes, folks. I believe we missed quite a few. But no matter, we'll just see what happens when we catch even more Pokemon this weekend!
