This is a picture of some Lance crackers, specifically Toast-Chee, the most common and well known variety. Note the color of these crackers.

Image

This is Lance.

Image

And this is Lance's signature pokemon, Dragonite. Again, note the color.

Image

That's correct, ladies and gentlemen: Both Toast-Chee crackers and Dragonite are, in fact, orange! And both are strongly associated with Lances! Coincidence? I THINK NOT!

Thank you for your attention.

I fail to see. Sure, if the crackers had wings or something... Wait... Is this a funny?

That was only in the old days... Dragonite is a full-on oompa loompa in recent games. Maybe he spent too much time in Jersey between RS and DP.

Compare:

Also in the Disney show I'm in the Band, they have some pokemon suspicions also.

Like one of the band people, Ash, has same name as the famous pokemon character and even has a similar outfit:

And another band person, Burger, was once wearing a shirt that looks like Ho-oh:

Nah, he looks pretty Oompa Loompa in almost all the games except gen III. He probably spent a lot of time inside those years trying to complete the dex because it takes 57 different games to do it in those gens. then once gen IV came with the gts all he had to do was offer his bidoof, then go out and sun himself while someone gave him palkia.

Gen 1: light brown Image Image Image
Gen 2: an even lighter shade of Gen 3 Image
Gen 3: not orange, as discussed before Image
Gen 4: ORANGE Image
Gen 5: ORANGE Image

You sure about that?

Yes, but due to RBY's poor color palette, he looks brown (or tan) rather than orange, so it's still not the same!
