what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.

EDIT: The original NGram is a fake! So this makes Pokemon an even weirder coincidence.

Remember that time Neil thought he was just trollin’ the internet but then the “So Long As It’s Words” ladies pointed out that, in fact, he had accidentally chosen the exact moment when it was most likely that the word Pokemon had briefly (and completely coincidentally) been published in English literature?
I love you all!
