'Gravity Falls' creator turns presidential candidates into Pokemon

Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch tried to draw Pokémon while listening to U.S. election news, and we're all the better for it, because the result is this wonderful series that fuses presidential candidates with the little pocket monsters.

His "Presidential Pokémon" delivers Bernie Sanders as Charmander, Trump as Muck, Hillary Clinton as Butterfree, Marco Rubio as Diglett and Carson as Snorlax. Gravity Falls animator and storyboard artist Dana Terrace also stepped in with "HypnoCruz" ("Type: Creepy ATTACKS: Makes women sterile just by looking at them SECRET: Is the Zodiac Killer").

Alas, poor John Kasich didn't get his own Pokémon. Maybe that'll change if his courage pulls him through on Tuesday ...
