Because Of Course “Drag Race” Queens Are “Pokémon Go” Characters

"Water off a Psyduck's back."

Pokémon Go is the summer’s biggest craze, so it was only a matter of time before gay fans began to merge the LGBT community and Pokémon together:

Now the RuPaul’s Drag Race fandom has jumped on the bandwagon and reimagined their favorite queens in the Pokémon world. First artist MAGAM has drawn the show’s queens as a new breed of Pokémon based on some of their most iconic looks:

World of Wonder’s Jake Thompson even paired the Drag Race queens with their Pokémon spirit animal, and the results are pretty on point:

They’re even reimagining the queens as Trainers!

Now how do we petition to get “Death Drop” added as an attack in Pokémon Sun and Moon?

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 2 debuts August 25 at 8pm on Logo.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
