It took 2 days for someone to come up with this. I applaud you, but shame on the rest of us.

My kids will be super bummed but I guess it is time for them to learn what a boycott is… Jerks!

Not that they will care, but I emailed a link to the ARS Technica article with a brief statement to that effect to "support@pokemon.com".

Ummm, except that is a particularly charmingly “bad” Charizard whose compatriots I would spend a not-insignificant amount of time viewing on a tumblr devoted to this particular style…

He should have just added a fair use clause to his party invite, raised the price of admission to $3 and called their bluff.

Pokemon is crap.
