Move over Espurr, a new memetic Pokemon as arrived! With the release of the new Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games, it seems that the second-stage starter Pokemon, Marshtomp, has become the latest meme to come out of Japan for its seemingly empty and confused look from the new games.
While Espurr from Pokemon X and Y has been made into a meme for its outright creepiness, the Marshtomp memes seem to have been leaning along the lines of the “Wat?” meme as the Water/ Ground Pokemon’s really confused look. Here’s a comparison between what Marshtomp usually looks like and what it looks like in the new games.
One seems like a happy camper while the other seems to have been hit with Haunter’s Confuse Ray. That blank look apparently was enough for some fans to go crazy and have a little bit of fun at poor Marshtomp’s expense. He even gets his own trending twitter hashtag,
