King Charles references 'Pokemon,' 'Hello Kitty' during state banquet


King Charles made a surprising "Pokemon" reference while hosting a Japanese state banquet attended by Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako on Tuesday.

“I am only sorry to report that I haven’t had any better luck with more recent attempts at fishing – the Pokemon phrase ‘gotta catch ‘em all’ may resonate with my grandchildren, but for me it is, perhaps, aspirational,” King Charles said during his speech. He also gave "Hello Kitty" a nod in his speech by wishing it "a very happy birthday," as the franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary.
