Anita Gates, Prophet

A pokeman, probably.

We all laughed at Anita Gates back in 1999 when she wrote, “In the year 2015 or so, it’s going to be embarrassing. Young novelists and reporters will probably be using terms like Charizard-like or Squirtle-like in their work and insisting to their much older editors that everyone knows what they mean, everyone who ate and slept Pokemon as a child, anyway, which will be the vast majority of young adults.” But who’s laughing now? NOBODY.
