"Get in the Bag, Nebby" Memes: This 'Pokémon Sun and Moon' character is going viral


Pokémon Sun and Moon has already spawned some great memes, but the best one may come from a rebellious little Pokémon that plays a big role in the new games. Meet Nebby, an adorable Cosmog that can't seem to stay out of trouble. 

Nebby belongs to Lillie, a key character in Pokémon Sun and Moon. Nebby also happens to be a very rare Pokémon, which is why it's usually kept hidden inside a duffel bag. Unfortunately, it refuses to stay put, often forcing its way out of the bag and into potential danger. Thus, the "Get in the bag, Nebby" meme was born.

Nebby hates bags. That's pretty much the extent of this Pokémon Sun and Moon meme. Pokémon fans still managed to get a lot of mileage out of the idea, though, and the results are hilarious.

You can think of Nebby as the new Pikachu for Pokémon Sun and Moon: Not only is this thing freaking adorable, but it also refuses to follow orders.
