If you are one of those who for a while believed that there were only 150 Pokémon (with the doubt of whether Mew really existed), this is of interest to you. Surely over the years you’ve seen all kinds of drawings of the saga in video games, anime and even musical theater, from those that propose new evolutions and creatures to those that you would never recognize having looked for. Now, a fan of the Nintendo franchise has brought two concepts together in a way that is so astoundingly real that it’s hard to believe no one would have thought of it before.
For those of you who know nothing about ‘Pokémon‘ but want to understand the meme, suffice it to say that Geodude has the number 74 and can be obtained in all games except Sword/Shield and Scarlet/Purple. It is a stone with two arms on its sides and, of course, it is rock-type. In fact, the original Pokédex said of it that “It appears in plains and mountains. Resembling rocks, people trip over them or step on them.” It also has two evolutions: Graveler and Golem.
It is one of the most beloved and easily recognizable Pokémon, and perhaps that is why user DT Saranya has decided to share on Reddit his latest great creation: a Geodude with the face of The Rock. Dwayne Johnson is a regular in memes of all kinds, and the truth is that the montage is so perfect that not even the most perfect artificial intelligence would have been able to match it.
Comments to the post have added that “It’s not a Geodude, it’s a Rock”, “This drawing has changed the hierarchy of the Pokémon fanart universe” (in reference to the failed ‘Black Adam’ tagline), “I’m simultaneously thinking ‘But why’ and ‘Yes, so it is'” or “The most Rock-type Rock-type in the world.” What’s clear is that after you pull out your Pokéball, it will become family.
