Election time is coming. Politics. Debates. Awkward family conversations. I feel it in the water. I smell it in the air.

And if you're anything like me, you might be getting a little overwhelmed already. But what's never exhausting, and always delightful? What's been there for you since you were a little kid, made of happy thoughts and dreams, ready to sweep you up with sweet nostalgia?

Pokemon. Close your eyes and remember - and just for a minute, you're 10 years old, you're not in school for some reason, you have an impossibly powerful supernatural being in a capsule in your hand, and your biggest concern is the nagging voice at the back of your mind telling you that riding your bike indoors is against the rules.

It was a simpler time.

And now, through the magic of the interwebs and talented fan artists, we can combine this trip down memory lane with the wonders of being a Real Live Adult with the most mature and serious reality available... the United States Government. Yikes.

Yes, sure as death and taxes, but ten times more adorable, it's Presidential Pokemon! I dunno, I could be way off, but something about seeing real life being made cute and cuddly somehow makes the entire idea not seem so bad. I mean, elections and politics and Real Life are all still gonna happen. (Death and taxes, right?) But we can distract ourselves with cuteness in the meantime. Maybe that's just me. Oh well - Look! Pokemon!

And puns. So many puns. (Wouldn't be Pokemon without 'em, right?)

We have Utah-based artist Brandon Dayton to thank for this foray into patriotic cuteness. And while just yesterday I saw a couple for sale on his personal Etsy site, it looks like they've been popular enough to sell right out. Great news for the artist, but not so much if you were hoping to grab one of them. Too bad!

But fortunately, they're all still right here for you to enjoy. So enjoy!
