Since Edison got into Pokemon his favorite has been Eevee, this little dog pokemon that evolves into a bunch of different types of stronger pokemon. I started dropping hints that our dog Kojak might be a pokemon. He wasn't buying it. I kept it up, eventually expanding the hints to include his origin as an evolve of Eevee. Now we're at the point where I call him Kojeon (to fit with Eevee's other evolves such as Flareon, Vaporeon, etc), and we actively debate whether it's possible that he's a Pokemon. Edison insists that Kojak isn't a Pokemon because he's never seen him in the show or on a card.
I can't wait to see his face when this card emerges from a pack at christmas :)
