While I was helping grandad with his garage door, the Sonic the Hedgehog theme started running through my mind, but the lyrics were changed to Werner the Herzog.

One little letter can mean a whole world of difference in search results. via paperandparticles:

thesylverlining:

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?



So, me being me, I couldn’t let this stand unexplained and looked into the data on Google Books. The one 19th century citation for “Pokemon” appears to be A Classical Dictionary of Biography, Mythology, and Geography Based on the Larger Dictionaries by the English lexicographer Sir William Smith. Was he a Time Lord, perhaps an alias of The Doctor? Sorry, but no. It turns out that this was just a simple OCR error in scanning. Google’s optical character recognition just misinterpreted the name of Polemon, a Roman client king who governed part of Greek Anatolia in the 1st century BCE, as Pokemon.
