Some Legend Caught A Pokémon During Issues’ Pokémon Set At Warped Tour


Remember the news we brought you the other day: that US post-hardcore outfit Issues are pretty much the posterboys for the Pokémon fandom this year on Warped Tour? Well, someone found a Pokémon right in front their stage – the very stage that they had covered the Pokémon theme song on. Apparently Nidorans like to mosh, too.

The very fitting placement of the Nidoran was pointed out by a fan, who was witnessing Issues tear it up on their Pokémon-decked stage. For real: their equipment is covered in Pokémon skins and OG, BMO-toned Gameboy imagery. It really does seem like a Pokémon would feel right at home in amidst the post-hardcore chaos.

Even though they’re probably gonna be playing Pokémon Go for the rest of the year, being fanboys hasn’t been all that Issues have been up to lately. Their sophomore full-length Headspace dropped just a couple of months ago via Rise Records. Get a taste for it by scoping the clip for recent single “Coma”, featuring international model Shaun Ross.

Check out the Nidoran chilling in front of Issues’ stage in the screenshot below.


While you’re here, have a squiz of Issues covering the Pokemon theme song.
