Stephen Colbert manages to make a timely mash-up that perfectly aligns with Trump’s trip to Asia. Proving once and for all the age of his show’s writers.
One of the world’s most powerful franchises just happens to come from Japan, and that’s Pokemon. Colbert alludes that the Russian investigation has become much like a Pokemon battle.
Pairing up Cartoon Donald Trump (who is getting his own show btw) and Ash and Friends. Portraying Trump as some type of baddie on their show, is genius. As far as fan reaction? The clip seems to be a hit with Pokemon fans. As goes the Youtube comments, much fun can be had thinking about how effective battle moves like twitter rants or indictments would be in the world of Pokemon.
