WWWWWW #81 - Pokemon & Wings


World Wide Web Wacky Wing Wednesday. #lotwWWWWWW. 
Exploring chicken wing culture on the internet every Wednesday.


This Week:

Pokemon |




I do not play Pokemon. I have not watched the show. I have not played the card game. I have not played the video games. But there is no denying the phenomenon that has been Pokemon Go. It has only been out for like 2 weeks, but a day does not go by where I watch people stumble in the streets, run in packs, or sit at lunch and get some Pokemon. I watched a 40 year old man hold up a line at Costco as he tried to capture one on the conveyor at the check-out.

That being said, there is at least one thing that links chicken wings and Pokemon; the slogan. "Gotta Catch'em all!" - that's how I feel about chicken wings. But surely there's more of connection?

"I know this isn't art related, but I thought it was hilarious. I went out to get wings earlier today and one of them looked like charmander so I took a picture of it." 
I think it's awesome.


Pokemon champions also like to eat wings:



xRazeOvation |  This Pokemon player was trying the hottest wings on the menu during the VGC Worlds event in 2014. He survived, but barely.



There are also a bunch of homemade Pokemon chicken wing cards:





My Pokemon Card |  A site dedicated to helping you create your own Pokemon Card. Look I even created my own:




Ha ha ha - I have no idea what any of that means, I just clicked on numbers.

So are you a Pokemonist? A Trainer? Are you engulfed with Pokemon Go AND eating wings?

A very friendly openhearted place to occupy a couple of nights. All persons were well trained, cooperative and helpful. Everything was handled with effectiveness and attention to every detail was given. Food was delicious and the view was wonderful while dining. Thanks…
