Comedy Bang! Bang! won’t be back on TV until the fall, but on the internet CB!B! never sleeps. So when we asked fans to create their favorite CB!B! Pokémon crossovers, it wasn’t long until we were able to catch them all. See some of the most legendary CB!B! Pokémon below, and tweet any new ones you encounter in the wild to @ComedyBangBang.

1. Lauren Lapkus

Lauren Lapkus is a fan favorite thanks to her crazy characters on the CB!B! podcast and TV show. Meanwhile, “Lauren Lapras” is similarly one of the most popular water type Pokémon and would fit right in alongside her CB!B! counterpart in Jurassic World.


2. Victor & Tiny (Not Willy)

When Victor and Tiny (Brendon Small) are guests on the podcast, it’s like they’re two peas in a pod. So it’s no surprise that in the wild, the Victor and Tiny Pokémon has two heads and they have each others’ back, literally.


3. Fourvel

Just like little orphan Fourvel (Bobby Moynihan), this Pokémon can be found wandering the streets looking for scraps and gristle. Although this one has been caught, if you find another in your travels, please keep it away from sharp objects. (Watch what happens when Fourvel hangs out with Tegan and Sara on the Comedy Bang! Bang! couch.)


4. Slow Joey

On the CB!B! TV show, Slow Joey (Haley Joel Osment) is always making grievous errors and is impossibly dim. While one of the rarest Pokémon, the Slow Joey is also one of the easiest to capture due to these similarities to its human namesake.


5. Hey Nong Man

Comedy Bang! Bang!‘s most prolific catchphrase is also one of the rarest Pokémon in the United States. It’s rumored that they often travel in threes, causing a reset before you have the opportunity to successfully capture one.


6. Werner Herzog

Famed director Werner Herzog (Paul F. Tompkins) has a well-documented relationship with nature. The Herzog Pokémon has a similar reverence for the environment and can be found hidden in the trees and bushes awaiting the inevitable demise of man.


7. Big Sue

The world was introduced to Big Sue (Lapkus) in the fifth season of Comedy Bang! Bang!. Unlike her human namesake, this Pokémon doesn’t own the store “Carpets and Rugs, Down There” but does spend its time down there: underground.


8. Tsk-Tsk

One of the original CB!B! Pokémon, Tsk-Tsk appeared early in the first season of Comedy Bang! Bang!. Tsk-Tsk is the polar opposite in temperament of its Pokémon counterpart, the yet-to-be-captured Attaboy.


9. Tim Kalpakis

When you’re out and about looking for new Pokémon to catch, you may hear the distinct call of Tim Kalpakis (CB!B! writer and star of The Birthday Boys). The call sounds eerily similar to the English phrase, “Hey, folks!”


10. The Timekeeper

The Timekeeper (Neil Campbell) is not a mythical creature; he’s 30 years old. But the Timekeeper Pokémon has a much richer and more mystical history. It’s rumored to be the oldest Pokémon of all TIME.

Catch up on full episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang! season five right now on IFC.com and the IFC app.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.
