    1. unless your’e a kid, if you believed this i feel very sorry for you. seriously?! you can now major as a pokemon master in universities?!.. and i’m president barack obama here.

      1. Actually, its not too far off. And your very dull to think this is preposterous. You can take classes for skyrim in some colleges.

      2. When I went to College I took a class on Tolkien Mythology, so Pokemon mastery doesn’t seem to Farfetch’d.

    1. Spend money and time to take a university course that would be next to useless. Smart idea.

      1. Yeah no shit. Xbox and it awful online is for whiney, spolied kids who love talking shit on CoD.

      2. Wedding dress designer, advertiser, tattoo designer, cartoonist, architecture, art teacher, illustration artist, box art designer…. Yep, I’m flipping anger that you said Art is useless. Especially since I love art. DOESN’T LOOK SO USLESS NOW DOES IT?!

  1. I know this is an April fool’s joke, but if it was real I bet all the Nintendrones would take this course in place of something important like math and science.

    1. Have you even SEEN the formulas for different crap in Pokémon games such as catch rate?

      Lots of math in Pokémon

  2. If it were true, it would be time to cue the Nukes! I like pokemon, but this would be a tad bit on the ridiculous side.

  3. God damn it, actually fell for this… Oh well, at least one April Fools joke had to get me today!

  4. Lost University concept? Is funny how everything seems to have something from the Lost TV show.

  5. They’ll make it happen eve tually anyway…

    If Harry Potter and LOTR can, why not Pokemon?…

    You can learn things from each…

    There is an Optimus Prime religion aswell with over 1000 members so a Pokemon Degree is just as valid as these examples…

    And to be honest, you learn better values from Ash and Pikachu than the ever stupidity of the 3 Abraham religions…

    1. Maybe because Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings have stories worth analyzing. No one in their right mind woukd waste money and time on a Pokemon course.

    2. think I learned better values from my church than I did from pokemon, in fact they were really similar values, but the pokemon ones were far more brief while the church ones were more long winded, but what ever, HAPPY EASTER SEASON! :)

  6. It “could” possibly be real!?
    Damn I’m going to be glad when today is over with…

  7. I’m saddened that some people almost fell for this.
    Unless Pokemon existed, this would be a worthless degree to have.

    Makes me wish Pokemon existed.

  8. “Maybe because Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings have stories worth analyzing.”
    Oh please, both are derivative of iconic/ancient cultures. You better off studying those. Plus it’s all magic. Pokemon (more so the games) have an intricate system to learn. That bein said, all three are wastes of education funding. Happy Springtime :D

  9. Ash definitely isn’t going to be a pokemon master anytime soon, huh? Good thing Ash has amassed a crap load of money from trainer battles over the course of his adventure he
    won’t have to take out student loans.

  10. At first I was like. Wtf. This can’t be real. Then I remembered the date. This and the Xwatch are the best ones I have seen today!

  11. I forgot all about it being April Fools when I first read this. I feel like an idiot now.

  12. I have been exploring for a bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts in this
    kind of space . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this site.

    Reading this info So i’m happy to express that I have an
    incredibly just right uncanny feeling I came upon exactly
    what I needed. I such a lot for sure will make sure to don?t fail to remember this website and give it a look regularly.

  13. Hey! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading your articles.
    Can you suggest anny other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics?

    Thanks a ton!
