While I’m always impressed by papercrafting and those who are patient enough to do it, artist Akira Nagaya takes the skill to a whole other level. He uses Post-its as his canvas and cuts detailed scenes and characters from anime series into the tiny papers. He’s tackled familiar faces such as Totoro and Pikachu, and all of his creations are enchanting.

The internet has a penchant for turning things into animals. We’ve seen Disney princesses as sloths, manatees dressed like superheroes, and now we have all the original Pokémon as alpacas. Why not? DeviantArt user Lopaki came up with the Alpacamon, and I’ve got to say that the makeover makes the pocket monsters even cuter. I want Alpacamon plushes!

Grayson Hopper is quite the gamer and really likes playing Pokémon. Also, Grayson is a fish. He belongs to Patrick Facheris and Catherine Moresco who have created a grid with various symbols as an overlay for Grayson’s tank. Depending on where he swims, the symbols on the grid will activate different moves in the game.
They came up with the whole idea at the HackNY hacking festival and now little Grayson is becoming a Pokémon master. Although his progress has been slow, he’s already collected a Charmander named AAAABBK who defeated a Squirtle. Pretty impressive stuff for a fish.

Pokémon fusion (otherwise known as Pokémon splicing) is basically where you take two Pokémon and combine them to make a new, and all-together very unique critter.
Josi, a 19-year-old artist (she calls herself a “wannabe concept artist,” though I think she’s way too talented to be a “wannabe”) excels in this arena, as you can see from these Pokémon creations.
Take a look at some more examples after the break…
Pokémon are cute little creatures, no matter how destructive their powers. However, if you take those same adorable Pokémon and give them Attack on Titan makeovers, they’re horrific.
Really, this is your nightmare fodder for tonight, all thanks to deviantArtist Beth Emery. You’ll never look at Pokémon the same way again.

Do you recall that rather clever April Fools’ Day prank that Google and Nintendo pulled? The one where Google released that official-looking promo video which stated that if people completed their “Pokémon Challenge” they’d earn a position at the company along with a business card that said “Pokémon Master?”
Turns out that if you completed the “challenge,” you’ll actually receive a very official business card from Google. Redditor tinygrump posted the above pic, along with a letter that was signed by Google software engineer Tatsuo Nomura. While tinygrump did receive 10 copies of the card, she didn’t receive that coveted Pokémon position. Rats.
