They said: “You gotta find something that has Outrage as a charge move (e.g. Dragonite). That way, when you attack someone and do the charge move, it’ll show ‘Karen used Outrage.’ And you will laugh every time.”
Others were more critical: “Eh Karen’s are supposed to have short hair.”
What is the Karen meme?
The Karen meme is a pejorative term for white women, who are perceived as too entitled or too demanding – leading to associations of them complaining, looking angry, etc.
As you can see with this Pokemon Go meme, nobody looks angrier than Tangrowth.
