Paul Robertson made a name for himself over the weekend by redrawing the original 151 Pokemon as if they were ... well, Australian. But while locals might have gotten most, if not all, of the jokes, fans from abroad might have been a little more confused by Pokemon such as "Yoyou" and "Criccet". So to help them out, there's a little explainer.
The annotations were posted overnight, although they weren't created by Robertson himself. They were made by another fan, Nib Oswald, and while there might be a bone of contention with some of them it's not hard for locals (particularly if you're over 30) to see the inspiration for many of them.
The explainers don't cover all of Robertson's Blokemon yet - only the first 57 are noted. But even then you might be surprised by some of the origins, like White Crow tomato sauce - I only grew up with Heinz or Masterfoods, and I spent plenty of weekends camping in Cubs and Scouts.

If you've got any international friends who have no idea what a Tim-Tam is, firstly, get new friends. Or send them a care package long distance. They'll appreciate it. Otherwise, just flick them these quick explainers from Oswald. Tell them it's a crash course in being Australian.
