5SOS' Album Update Is A Giant Pokemon Metaphor: Watch

5 Seconds of Summer have always been poetic dudes. So when I asked them about their work on their upcoming album, they used the most brilliant metaphor possible: Pokemon.

Yep, Ashton, Luke, Michael and Calum thought their transformation on the new record kind of resembles that of Squirtle's change into Wartortle. Maybe they'll reach Blastoise status in the future? In the meantime, grab your Pokeballs and try to catch all of 5SOS' Pokemon references in this video.

Once a '90s kid, always a '90s kid.
