What happens when you combine Pokémon Go and Dwayne Johnson? You get a profanity-spewing, muscled-up, badass new character named PokéRock. And he is ready to layeth the smacketh down on candy-assed Pokémon masters.
Seven Bucks Digital Studios, which is produced by Johnson and Dany Garcia, teamed up with YouTube stars MatPat—creator of YouTube series The Game Theorists—and Ali A to produce a video inspired by Pokémon Go.
In the video, MatPat searches for a new, ultra-rare Pokémon that he’s never seen before, and—surprise—it’s The Rock. Unlike most Pokémon, though, PokéRock has a bit of an attitude and talks back as MatPat tries in vain to catch him. No matter how many Pokéballs he the YouTuber tosses, The Rock refuses to submit. (“I could do this all day, you Weedle-catching bitch!" he snarls.)
Midway through the video, PokéRock belts out the classic WWE line from The Rock, but with a Pokémon twist: “Do you smell what the Rock is catching?” Then, because we've reached peak celebrity mashup, the video jumps into the anime style of the Pokémon animated series and shows PokéRock battling, kicking ass, and taking names—all set to a new theme song—as he schools an unfortunate Mankey:
Warning to all your Pokeman Go players out there. POKEROCK HAS ARRIVED! He's rare, uncatchable, bad ass and talks shit. LINK IN MY BIO for the full anime vid and documented sighting of the elusive and friendly #PokeRock. Special thanks to @MatPatGT and @Alia for attempting to catch him and above all joining me to have some FUN. And how bout our new dope and funny as hell PokeRock theme song? Need to thank the ORIGINAL voice of the Pokemon theme song himself, @JasonPaige for that! Have fun out there everyone and good luck catchin' them ALL! Except PokeRock of course because he will f*ck your day up and call you an a**hole! #PokeRock #SevenBucksDigitalStudios
