People Are Renaming Their Pokémon Based On Hilarious Autocorrect Fails

Now that we've lost our jobs, friends, families and attention to basic hygiene in favor of committing ourselves to nonstop Pokémon GO-ing, our only support system is the collection of teeny Japanese monsters waiting for us on our apps.

Naming these lil' peanuts is vital, seeing as they're the only ones who understand us/how deeply depressing we are as a species.

When Twitter user @Adnelle, AKA Swamp Witch Glenda, was tasked with naming her Pokémon, she texted her remaining friends for advice.

As usual, autocorrect barged in uninvited and, according to Cosmopolitan, changed @Adnelle's text from “Hey guys what should I name my Meowth?” to “Hey guys what should I name my Keith?”

Not one to ignore a clear sign from the universe, she began assigning all her captured Pokémon autocorrected names.

The rest of the Pokémon-obsessed internet followed @Adnelle's lead.

Just think, after you're gone an Exeggcute named Debbie will deliver the eulogy at your funeral. This is the world we have created for ourselves.
