Last night, Jeopardy had an entire category dedicated to Pokemon, and naturally the players avoided it until it was the only the category left, which often happens with video game categories. As a result, only four of the five possible questions were revealed, with time running out before the fifth question was read by Alex Trebek. That said, the category was enough to get many Pokemon fans to tune into the long-running TV game show, which teased the special category before the episode aired late last night.
As you can see later in the post, the questions were pretty easy. In fact, anyone with even slight knowledge of the series could probably have racked up the points. Of the four questions, three of them are worded in a such way that they are pretty easy to get even if you don't know a single thing about Pokemon.
As you may know, this isn't the first time Pokemon has featured on the iconic game show. For example, back in 2017 the series reared its head part of a "Video Games" category.
