Here we are, smack dab in the middle of the dead zone. That horrible time of year when the mean showrunners of AMC's The Walking Dead leave us with no new episodes. They claim something to do with summer break, it's infuriating.

But this summer has been somewhat different. For the first five years, it was as though we had nothing to fill the space left by The Walking Dead. I mean, what else is there, right? But not this year. Thankfully, the nice people over at Niantic have given us Pokémon Go to fill the void.

Granted, one doesn't appear to have anything to do with the other. But as far as ways to kill time to stay distracted from TWD withdrawal, walking, catching and evolving Pokémon is more effective than you'd think. It fits with Game of Thrones (see below).

Fear that Pokémon Go may not tide you over? Alright, how about a few photoshopped pictures infusing The Walking Dead with Pokémon? If The Walking Pokémon don't add another level to your gaming experience, you've only your imagination to blame.

It's the perfect hybrid for hunters of both walkers and Pokémon alike.

The Walking Pokémon

Not the kind of battle Pikachu is used to.

Fight fire, sorry.

Gotta catch some food.

Sort of miss the rustling leaves feature of the game, sniff.

That's breaking the code, Morgan.

Fall out!

Rattata are everywhere.

More than a few threats in these woods.

Well, I don't know what to do, I'm all out of pokéballs.

Aim for the head?

Just look at the Bellsprouts, Lizzie.

Any favorite TWD scenes you think would be better with Pokémon?
