RIP: Tombstone Statue Of Young Boy Playing Pokemon

October 3, 2013


This is the tombstone statue spotted by Redditor Paramorgue in Lund, Sweden. It features the likeness of a boy who passed away at the far too young age of five, playing Pokemon on a Gameboy Advance SP, which is propped in his lap by a Graveler pokemon. Rest in peace, little boy, hope you're catching 'em all.

Keep going for some closeups.




Thanks to me, for having the strength and determination to post two Pokemon articles in a row and not feeling too much worse about myself.

    I would just like to thank everyone for the support I've read through the comments here and it's really heart breaking to read through this. He passed away with a passion for pokemon at a very young age in a tragic accident.

    Best regard
    The brother

    As I am a father of a 14 months old, I cant even imagine the suffering of a lost child. It is very hard to keep my tears in at these times. It was pretty hard for this familly :(.. Hope all our childs around the world live and grow old in peace.

    I want to be the very best,
    Like no one ever was.
    To catch them is my real test,
    To train them is my cause.........

    There's a lot of shitty things about being a parent.

    Among the worst is reading about the death of a young child.

    Wow, touching and sad. :(

    While this is both sad and amazing, it's pretty clear the person who designed this has never held a gameboy... who sits their game on their lap and pokes at the buttons like that?

    Something is clear. You are a callous bastard.

    Never played Pokemon huh? At around the 6th solid hour your hands are cramping/sweating a little, any difference in posture really helps those conditions. It's not the most demanding of games as far as dexterity goes so it allows for the prod approach.
    Also, interesting that you've attracted a rarely seen band of white knights from the geekologie woodwork I see, well done. Usually only one or two will rear its head at a comment like this.

    Now I'm crying at work T.T
