Stay on target Mint-Condition Set of Pokemon Cards Sold For $107KNew Trailer ‘Pokemon Sword and Shield’ Reveals Team Yell Punks When you think about Pokemon’s Slowpoke, romance is probably the furthest thing from your mind. But that’s why this adorable song, featuring a Shellder who has a crush on the big bear-like Pokemon and its tail, works so well. It comes straight out of left field to tell a story that you probably weren’t expecting at all. It’s all part of a special Pokémon puppet theater show! It’s all about some very unexpected stars: Slowpoke and a sad little Shellder.Anime voice actress and singer Kana Hanazawa (voice of Haruka and May from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald) lends her voice to a lonely Shellder, wistfully singing away about her crush on a Slowpoke. She thinks his tail must be delicious, and as such she pines after the laid-back creature. But she’s concerned that Slowpoke’s evolved from Slowbro will change the Slowpoke she loves.It’s a very touching yet sweet tribute to Slowpoke and Shellder, especially with the cute Pokémon puppets, high production values, and cutesy Pokémon throughout the video. Did the creators expect everyone to take this seriously? Is it meant to be a lark? Either way, the song is catchy, and it’s a legitimate concern for our forlorn Shellder. My advice to the little clam is to just go for it. Even in its evolved form, Slowbro will still be just like the Slowpoke you fell in love with.Check out the Pokémon puppet show below for a hearty dose of feels. Maybe it’ll remind you of a lost love you’ve had before, or a time in your life where you had to make a hard decision about your love life. Or maybe it’ll just make you think about the time you captured your first Pokémon, be it a Shellder or a Slowpoke. It’s definitely a cute video to watch if you’ve got some time.
