A United States Map Of Which Pokemon Each State Is Trying To Catch The Most

This is a United States map made by the folks at decluttr (who apparently decluttered so hard they accidentally threw some of the letters in their name away) showing which state is trying to catch which Pokemon the most. Their foolproof methodology:

We decided to find which states are looking for which Pokémon most. To do this, we took phrases like ‘where is…’ and ‘how to find…’, paired them up with the Pokémon in the game and measured the volume of searches in each state.

Sounds legit. The results are surprisingly varied except for a handful of Pikachu, Ditto and Eevee. West Virginia, where I was born, is looking for Growlithes. And it looks like Maryland is too but on the list it says Ditto. So which one is it? Because that Growlithe is clearly pointing to Maryland. That Ditto looks like it’s pointing at Virginia’s little dingleberry that hangs off Maryland’s ass. And there’s no DC listed at all so it can’t be that. Come on — you had one job. Man, I remember when people used to take pride in their map-making.

Thanks to POST ME, who tried to take over a Pokemon gym and got destroyed. Like, DESTROYED destroyed.
