Really?! I won one! Woohoo!
The funny thing is, I mostly posted that comment because it was my first honest thought when I saw the picture.
My two year old just saw the picture over my shoulder and said, "Das Pikachu."
It really amused me. Partially because we've done the thing when we look at a Pokemon and tilt our heads and go 'what animal is that supposed to have come from?" ;-)
I think I just vaguely assumed they were all made-up animals. Like aliens or something. My kids have started to get into Pokemon recently, but I haven't paid enough attention to it to wonder what species they were. So it surprised me to think that maybe PIkachu was a cat all along. Now, of course, I've googled some of the images, and they do look sort of ... random. I think there's a penguin in there, and a dinosaur. But many ... who knows.
