Pokémon Haiku: Kanto Edition

Pokémon Haiku: Kanto Edition

The world of pokémon is weird and wonderful place. To celebrate these strange critters I’ve written some haikus for some of the original 151 pokémon. Some focus on the game play of the original games whilst others are based on interesting or creepy nuggets of information in the game’s pokédex. All of them were great fun to write.
