Viewers were not impressed with one comment on Take Me Out last night

Nothing gets past Pokemon fans. Nothing.

We were reminded of this yet again on Saturday evening, when Take Me Out contestant Sharlene was pounced upon for her shameful mistake.

Sharlene was one of the two remaining girls hoping to win a date with singleton Shaun. As is always the way, a question was thrown at the the pair to help the Shaun make his final decision.


Asked what animal they would be if they had to choose one, Sharlene explained that she'd like to be Pikachu, "because he's 'small and fiery".

Now, as we're sure you were already aware, Pikachu is not actually an animal. More importantly - and much to the disgust of many a Pokemon fan - he was never at any point fiery.

Her answer did not go down well with viewers at home.


Despite her embarrassing error, Sharlene did in fact win the date. Hopefully, she'll have a good week on the isle of Fernando's to think long and hard about her mistake.
