Geniuses Are Mashing-Up ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ with Pokémon Go

We gagged to the heavens when someone mashed-up the reigning queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race with the queer-tastic Crystal Gems of Steven Universe. So imagine our reaction when we learned that some Drag Race fans are crossing the queens over into Pokémon territory — GOTTA SNATCH ‘EM ALL!

First, we learned of World of Wonder’s Jake Thompson pairing former contestants with their complimentary Pokémon. You should really check out the full gallery for yourself (the Latrice Royale and Haunter image SLAYS), but we couldn’t resist sharing two of our favorites here with you.

Then NewNowNext turned us onto two Instagrammers who drew the former queens as Pokémon creatures and trainers. There’s MAGAM who transformed the queens’ most memorable looks into imaginary Pokémon creatures like Kim Chi’s crying French clown look from season eight, episode seven (named Chimik)…

… and Acid Betty’s killer look from season eight, episode four (named Viperacid)…

… and there are even more at MAGAM’s Instagram account. It’s also worth mentioning that MAGAM also has a YouTube channel and while it doesn’t have Pokémon, it does have some eyebrow-raising videos featuring a drag queen named Adana Quing.

Next, we learned about semehammer, an Instagrammer who drew Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi and Naomi Smalls as Pokémon trainers. Their page also has a bunch of other great Drag Race and Pokémon illustrations as well!

Lastly, NewNowNext found this hilarious chart of water Pokémon placed on a femme-butch spectrum (that coincidentally matches the colors of the bisexual flag) — they got it from the Pokémon Go Gays Facebook page.

OMG, it’s so funny that we’re passing out! Someone get Professor Willow to revive us because we are literally knocked out.
