    Play those games so many times, and never really noticed that before…

    You go soul brother!

    I think it looks more like a British royal guard's hat

    The guy in the afro isn't blocking the cave, the cave is IN the afro. Right beside all the pikachus that aren't in Pokémon Yellow.

    I always saw that thing as a British Police helmet, since I was 6 years old. And was really surprised it was a cave O_o

    this holds special significance for me… back in the day a bunch of my friends took a picture in front of our elementary school, and in the yearbook they put that picture in… but in black and white… and what started out as my friend positioned in front of a large round bush that was next to the entrance turned into the most perfect accidental afro we had ever seen

    The caves in Legend of Zelda didn't give me afros…..
    DAMN YOU NINTENDO!! Why give Pokemon the special treatment?

    When I played this, i thought he was wearing a British hat until he moved and revealed it was a cave.

    How awesome. This week I had found my old Pokemon games and decided to play through them again. I say we need this week to be declared Pokemon week and get it all out of our systems.

    That's what I always thought. Didn't realize there was a cave behind him until a friend of mine told me.

    Now I know why Marge Simpson has her strange hair!

  12. KingHoboVI on July 7th, 2009 3:57 pm

    But what was before 1998? Mohawks? Or did caves refuse to dispense afros until January 1st, 1998?

  13. G1drake on July 7th, 2009 4:29 pm

    deja-vu, i tthink i saw that before

  14. Badonk on July 7th, 2009 4:32 pm

    He's just chillin on the west side…of the river

  15. codemaster525 on July 7th, 2009 4:39 pm

    this was ruined in the GBA port.

  16. Hareoic on July 7th, 2009 4:41 pm

    Oi, guvna!

  18. TehVortex on July 7th, 2009 5:00 pm

    I hated that guy. He denied me my freedom to explore for such trival reasons. So what if my highest levelled pokemon is a Venusaur on lvl 38 and there are scary-badass pokemon in there, I wanna go!

  19. novicechief on July 7th, 2009 5:24 pm

    when i was younger i always thought that he was one of those guys that guards Buckingham palace and is not allowed to move

    partly because he never was able to move as beating the elite four in yellow was a lot harder that it is now a days

  20. ditto on July 7th, 2009 5:27 pm

    everyone forgot about me!

  21. xGRiMx on July 7th, 2009 5:38 pm

    i never noticed this…CANNOT BE UNSEEN

  22. Lemon on July 7th, 2009 12:44 pm

    lmfao thats what i always thought until i surfed over there and he moved over

  23. riot on July 7th, 2009 6:35 pm

    Cave closed.
    Due to AIDS.

  24. H Hog on July 7th, 2009 9:55 pm

    It's more like an Eraserhead, isn't it?

  25. Anony on July 7th, 2009 11:41 pm

    I've never looked at it that way before. I literally LOL'd.

    God I feel old, seeing that this game is a decade old.

  26. SexyLegs on July 8th, 2009 12:12 am

    Hehe :)
    <3 Pokemon Ah..

  27. anon on July 8th, 2009 12:29 am

    Attention trainers! My hair has the power to defy gravity!

    On another note, I always thought he had an afro.

  28. kirbyownsyou97 on July 8th, 2009 1:33 am

    must. find. cave. for. awesome. hair.

    *reads comments*
    I never realized how many other people thought he was wearing a Buckingham Palace guard uniform. I always thought that was just me. lol

    Also, that was part of the fun of old games -- it was so easy to misinterpret things and end up with stuff like this. :)

  31. Dean on July 8th, 2009 9:31 am

    He looks like one of the gaurds who gaurds the queen in England :P

  32. Zach The Maniac on July 8th, 2009 3:39 pm

    Approach Cave,Receive Afro

  33. HarmoniChaos on July 9th, 2009 1:52 am

    Old school pokemon is totally epic that way, just like this pick =D

  34. Buckethead2112 on July 11th, 2009 3:36 am

    I always thought that what is was until he moved!

    Everyone used master ball on mewtwo. I actually clompleted the pokedex for Y-version. Don't try it. You get NOTHING >:(

  35. NovaMan XP on July 14th, 2009 6:32 pm

    I always thought he had an afro too. Good to see I'm not insane… or the only one that is.

  36. masterjiji on June 7th, 2010 10:11 pm

    It looks like this gangster…
    (puts on sunglasses) …got a hair extension.
