‘Pokémon GO’ Parody Shows the Struggles of Trainers Living in Small Towns

The Pokémon Go mobile phenomenon has millions of people out and about, walking the earth, searching, all trying to be the very best, like no one ever was.  Easier said than done if you don’t live within a populous city.

I live in New York and, in walking around Central Park and the Museum of Natural History last weekend, I caught 4 Charmanders (the museum is a Charmander magnet!!), 3 Ivysaurs, a countless number of Nidorans and 1 Snorlax.  Yup, I caught a Snorlax last weekend.  The same rare Pokémon that recently caused a stampede in Taiwan.

Big cities and populations seem to attract more Pokémon.  So, what happens if  you live in a tiny town, in the middle of nowhere?  No Pokéstops.  No gyms.  No Pokémon!!  THE HORROR!!!!!

Fear not, small towners!  One group of YouTubers wants you to know, they understand your pain.  AOK, a newly launched channel consisting of several animators and writers, has put together a parody that you won’t want to miss.  The parody takes the classic Pokémon theme song and changes the lyrics to accurately reflect what it’s like playing PoGO for those living in smaller surroundings.

“I want to be the very best but I live in a small town.  When I turn on Pokémon GO there’s no Pokémon around!  My only rival is the gas station guy.  I swear I’ll defeat him.  But there’s no Pokéstops for 50 miles.  I’ve never seen a f**king gym…”

The Small Town Pokémon Go parody stars Rattata (and ten thousand Pidgeys), everyones favorite (and probably only)Pokemon of the small town players.  The video is really quite hilarious and also, really catchy.
