Video game connoisseur Shaun Kitchener is a bit obsessed with the popular game Pokémon Red, a Gameboy Advance re-release. Apparently, the world of the game is littered with Pokémon trainers who great you with suggestive one-liners that really tickled his imagination. He began to wonder what would happen if he used them to try and pick up guys. Here's a sample, if you're unfamiliar with these horny little characters:
Even though he is in a committed relationship, Shaun signed up for on the dating app Grindr to try and catch 'em all. He writes in a blog post that it was hard to maintain conversations with anyone using disjointed sentences and no dick pics, but what flirtatious "cave talk" he did manage to capture is pretty funny (people's photos covered with Pokémon for privacy):
Shaun doesn't really get into what this experiment was supposed to prove, if anything. It's more like a secret love letter to Pokémon and hooking up, two things should go together far more frequently. Hopefully, Shaun will continue with his niche experiment, as long as his boyfriend doesn't mind.
