These Pokemon Are As Canadian As It Gets

Gotta catch 'em all, eh

Did you know there’s such a thing as #PokemonDay? Neither did we.

Apparently that happened on Tuesday this week, and very much to our surprise, the Canadian government was all about it. The official Canada Twitter account used the opportunity to post a series of illustrations of Pokemon, re-imagined as Canada’s most stereotypical figures.

Designed by illustrator Darren Calvert, the characters include an angry looking Timmies cup called Dubbledubble, Aboot (self-explanatory), and many more. Check them out below:
