Pokémon Poetry: Nine Haiku About Our Collections

Illustration for article titled Pokémon Poetry: Nine Haiku About Our Collections

Several of us here at Kotaku are playing Pokémon Let’s Go and collecting new adorable friends and fighters, and these little critters have inspired some poetry. What better form than the haiku to celebrate these pocket-sized monsters and their stories?

huge Clefable, please
carry me in your cloud arms
I name you meringue

Water beats fire
But I don’t know who will win
When bug faces ghost

It was super effective!”
~the worst bath ever

Venusaur hopping
Like a frog shaking the earth
Just let him walk please

Professor Oak, sir
The candy you sent me is
Pokémon Soylent

My Pokémon live
In balls boxed within backpacks
I hope they can breathe.

Pokémon in box
Never to see day again
Yes—Mewtwo was right

lost my save file
nothing matters anymore
oh! a Pikachu!

Young child roaming the world
Hoping for monsters
