Pokémon Parody a Joke

11/17/1998 at 12:00 AM EST

Every pheonomenon gets its parody and now's the time for Pokémon's. The Associated Press reports that a trading card company called Parody Cards Ink has taken on the successful Japanese import with Jokémon. "How many cute little monsters can one country take?" says company director, Clifford VanMeter, who cites the success of the Garbage Pail Kids in his decision to play around with Pokémon. Jokémon's 45 characters include Turdling and Beltch-a lot. "Our goal is to make fun of something that people are taking way too seriously."
