When thinking of ways to describe Vancouver International Airport, do Oddish, Araquanid or Tyranitar come to mind?
If YVR were a Pokémon, the airport’s social media team bets it would be one of those three.
On Wednesday, YVR took to the weird and wonderful world of #AirportTwitter to start a fun game representing airports as Pokémon. It matched different airports to the much-loved characters, and soon other cities jumped on board.

Many of the Pokemon bore strong resemblance to the airports’ logos, but we have to wonder if YVR chose Magikarp for Dallas Fort Worth as a tongue-in-cheek chirp.
