A lot of people have roasted Pokemon Go and the people who play it, but I don’t think anyone hit the nail on the head as hard as The Simpsons did with this episode. Homer and Lisa get addicted to Pokemon Go, and they end up helping Bart find his elderly friend. In this search, they recruit some “Pikimon” trainers, most of which are either really nerdy looking, fat, creepy, or just straight up lame.
Homer and Lisa sing a parody of the Pokemon theme song that makes fun of people who play the game by saying it’s a waste of time, babies can play it, and how it really doesn’t promote exercise at all.
Are they a tad harsh? Maybe, but I don’t think they’re at all that wrong. Either way, there are some pretty hilarious references in the episode. If you want to catch the good parts, fast forward to when Homer and Lisa are talking in her room.
