Whether You Play Ariana Grande or Village People, These Dancing Pokémon Are Always on Beat

The Pokémemes keep on coming: The latest addition to this great saga is a video going around of Charizard and Dragonite dancing to a choreographed routine. In the tradition of Baby Groot or Oscar Isaac, fans have paired these dancing Pokémon with random songs to prove that no matter what song is playing, the dragon dancers are always on beat.

The detectives over at Stereogum seem to have traced the meme’s origin to a version featuring a song by GARNiDELiA, but the clip works with nearly any tune you add. Connoisseurs of Pokémon that we are, Slate has selected a few of the very best, below.
