Pokemon is a Merlin and Arthur friendship vid by Ayrotciv8 (2:04 min). Arthur is a Pokémon trainer and Merlin is his Pokémon.

The vid is a fill for the kinkme_merlin prompt: Arthur/Merlin, vid request: the Pokemon theme song. "It's you and me/ I know it's my destiny! / Pokemon!/ Ooh, you're my best friend /In a world we must defend!" It's crack, but you cannot deny the truth. Merlin would make an awesome pikachu.[1]

Vidder's notes: "I was going for crack but...oops, couldn't. It turned out kinda epic instead."

The vid has been viewed more than 7,000 times (as of September 2010) and has more than 120 comments.


  • "THAT IS THE BEST THING I HAVE SEEN ALL DAY. I can't stop laughing, even though (I guess because, really) you've done a superb job with it. OMG. ILU. Especially loved the "destiny" and "you teach me and I'll teach you" bits. Well, the whole thing, really. EVERY BIT. :D"[2]
  • "Anon, this is seriously cool. I love Merlin's eyes flashing, how you showed his powers, Arthur training his other pokemons/Knights, and how you recreated the whole Pokemon universe!"[3]
  • "I laughed, and yet...it worked alarmingly well and was all kinds of epic. And also oddly touching. The love, THE LOVE! ~*true friends omg*" (cptgigi, YouTube comment)
  • "When Merlin was holding the glowing ball, I just wanted him to throw it and be all "Pikachu! I Choose YOU!"" (drumtap2792, YouTube comment)
