What happens when David Attenborough comes across a Pokemon roaming free in the wilderness? All of the lols, apparently.

A video that takes the dulcet tones of the famed BBC wildlife commentator and mixes them with scenes from gaming craze Pokemon Go has gone viral.

"It is, of course, a bird"

"It is, of course, a bird, a red-tailed hawk," says Attenborough when he comes across a Pokemon called Spearow.

He goes on to discover a bat called Zubat and nabs him with a Pokeball.


"That is one bat who will not return to the roost tonight," mourns Attenborough.

The video has had more than three million views since it was posted on Facebook.
