Remember Harambe? You should remember Harambe. He was a gorilla who lost his life in a tragic accident back on May 29th. Essentially, it was because a child fell into his enclosure, and authorities/staff were unsure whether the child would be harmed or not. They decided to take out the gorilla in order to prevent the child from being in danger.
Of course, the proceedings went viral that day, and the entire world yelled at Cincinnati Zoo. Since then, things have died down a bit, but Harambe’s pretty much become some sort of meme god, now. Case in point:
Now, apparently, Harambe’s become a highly requested Pokemon for the next Pokemon game, Pokemon Sun and Moon.
The petition, which aired not so long ago, has already amassed almost thirty-five thousand signatures in favour of including Harambe in Pokemon Sun and Moon. The petition letter itself reads “I want Harambe to live on forever in everyone’s hearts. Please let this happen Nintendo.” How touching…
I’m probably going to sign it, just for shits and giggles. The creators included a few ideas in image format of what a Harambe Pokemon may look like, and god, they’re spectacular. They’re up above, in case you missed them.
Let’s hope they get their wish. Harambe – forever in our hearts. And soon, forever in our Pokedexes.
