Friend of redditor yllwsnow2 got super wasted and decided to tattoo this hot mess on himself (though it could be just a marker drawing). The burnt-to-a-crisp Charmander is based on HatBoy’s brilliant Tim Burton-styled Pokemon.

Naturally, the Internet ran with it. In no time at all the tattoo was a meme that evolved into t-shirts, bottles, jewelry, cross stitch patterns, and more.

See some of the best tributes to this awesomely bad tattoo after the break…

It is the nature of the geek world to mash things up, so it’s not surprising that someone created a world in which The Joker would wield the Charizard Pokemon card. Seems fitting that it would be his Pokemon of choice.

This first ever online cosplay April Fools’ was a complete success! On April 1st hundreds of cosplayers, including the legendary Zee “JiNxXx” Kotwal, dressed up as Pokemon’s Misty and changed their profile pic in nearly the same pose exclaiming:

“I can’t wait to debut my new Misty cosplay at Cerulean City Comic-Con!! #Pokecon”

This is one of the best and well-spirited online group trolls of all time. Every picture and tag was uploaded at the same time and feeds were suddenly overrun with adorable pictures of men, women, and children sporting pigtails, suspenders, and peace-signs.

This is Termina Cosplay as gijinka version of Red Gyarados Pokémon. Gijinka is a fan interpretation of a Pokémon in a human form. She also made a Blue Gyarados for a friend and they debuted their costumes at Con+Alt+Delete in Chicago last year. She used Worbla and foam for the shoulder fins, cast and painted resin for the Pokéballs, and sewed the tail to include an invisible string to make it move.
