We asked people what Pokémon they wanted to date

Can I get a side of tentacles with that?

Let’s be real: If I asked you what Pokémon you’d date, you’d probably have an answer, right?

I went out on the streets of New York City to ask people their opinions on dating Pokémon. Answers ranged the gamut of human emotion, from eager to disgusted.

"They're supposed to be your friends," one Pokémon fan told us. Undaunted, I kept asking the hard questions.

Oddly enough there was no clear winner. Quite a few people went for Pikachu simply because they recognized it, or wanted Pikachu to be their friend. But it turns out, people's Pokémon dating preferences are just as diverse as their human dating preferences!
