Nacho Punch’s Game of Throkemon drops Ash into the Night’s Watch with bloody results.
As far as fictional universes go, it’d be hard to find two more different from each other than the worlds of Game of Thrones and Pokemon. Game of Thrones, after all, centers on a bloody conflict between political factions vying for control in a world fraught with betrayal, sex and violence. Pokemon, comparatively, is a family friendly adventure filled with adorable creatures, bloodless battles and themes of friendship. That in mind, a crossover between the two might rightfully not jump out as the most natural fit. Nonetheless, thanks to the guys and gals at Nacho Punch, a crossover exists.
The group, which also produced the excellent Star Wars anime short last month, recently released the video Game of Throkemon which, true to its title, combines the two franchises with hilarious results. The video begins with Pokemon protagonist Ash Ketchum joining the ranks of the Nights Watch. Hearing about the White Walkers, Mr. Ketchum promptly sets off into the lands beyond the wall with his Charizard in to catch himself a specimen of this new “ice-type.” As you might expect, the only one who really comes out of it well is Charizard because hey, he’s a dragon.
