Random Child In Pokemon Looks Insanely Strong

The above image is from the recently released Pokemon the Movie: Everyone’s Story. Can you see why it would cause a debate? Look closely and you’ll see a young boy holding Larvitar, a Rock/Ground Pocket Monster that weighs 72kg.

As evident on Pokemon Matome, fans have been trying to figure out whether or not this Larvitar is real.

In the upper left, for example, a young girl holds what is clearly an Umbreon stuffed animal. The actual Umbreon weighs 27kg, but a plush toy version would weigh much, much less.

Is the boy holding a real Larvitar? Or is he holding a plushie? It sure looks like an actual Pocket Monster!

The surrounding Pokemon also appear real. Right next to the boy, a girl holds a Vulpix, which appears to be a living Pokemon and not a plushie. Vulpix weighs 10kg, which would be heavy for most kids but not impossible for one to carry.

A nearby man holds a Squirtle, which also appears to be real. That Pokemon weighs 9kg.

Those are conceivable for people to hold with relative ease. Larvitar is not.

So is this kid holding a real Larvitar? Again, it doesn’t look like a plushie. Of course, this is most likely a joke or a reference to the time Ash easily carried the Pocket Monster.

    You've missed your calling in life as an occupational health and safety officer. Two man lift for a Vulpix, this Larvitar will definitely require the forklift, hi vis vests and hard hats on everybody.

      And cones, it NEEDS cones around it all.

        and a spotter, you always need a spotter!

          and the union rep to make sure no one is working outside their designated profession.

    Do Japanese have trouble with the conception of weight? In MHW I notice that in the hunter notes, Zorah Magdaros's weight is only 25,000 lbs, even though it is literally the size of a mountain.

      Yes, yes they do, any game with weights listed for anything are usually hilariously unrealistic

      Thoooouuughhhh i think gravity is lower on the monster hunter series planet to explain how enourmous monsters dont just collapse on themselves and how people can carry guns and axes and swords their own size around?

    "In the upper left, for example, a young girl holds what is clearly an Umbreon stuffed animal."
    I think you mean upper right.

    You need a lollipop guy to direct traffic around them.
