Pokemon Smile Lets You Catch a Pikachu While You Brush Your Teeth

This is beautiful.

I never thought I would see the day. Pokemon Smile is a new mobile game that allows you to catch pokemon while you brush your teeth. The best part: It is available today.

As seen in the trailer, you are the hero in this tale as you put your pokemon cap on and aid other pokemon in defeating bacteria in your mouth. That is not a joke. The app uses augmented reality to let you put on a hat of your favorite pokemon. If you brush thoroughly, you can actually catch the pokemon. It also features a more cutesy art style than the traditional Pokemon art we are used to seeing in the mainline games.

This is, by far, the craziest Pokemon game I have ever seen in my entire life on planet Earth. I thought Pokemon Sleep, the game that lets you catch pokemon in your sleep, was wild. In my eyes, on the scale of wildness, Pokemon Smile is slightly more wild than Pokemon Sleep. I just never saw it coming.

Jokes aside, I do understand what The Pokemon Company is going for. I have witnessed friends get their children to brush their teeth. This gives children a fun activity to look forward to when they have to do something as menial as brushing their teeth.

Who am I kidding, I am going to download this app as soon as I stop writing this bit. I need to experience fighting bacteria with pokemon, and then catching them while wearing a Squirtle hat. This is the life I want to live.

Pokemon Smile is not the only great announcement made during today’s presentation. A sequel to the beloved game Pokemon Snap was revealed. While there wasn’t a release date, New Pokemon Snap is currently in development and more details will be coming “soon.”
