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…

pokeshaming

We’ve seen kid shaming, pet shaming and even D20 shaming, but thanks to a new Tumblr meme, we have Pokémon shaming — which may be the best shaming ever.

Head after the break to see some great examples.

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.

These matchups between Game of Thrones characters and Pokémon are the work of the very talented AWildSketchAppeared. He’s taken characters from Game of Thrones, like Daenerys and Brandon Stark, and made them Pokémon trainers. It’s not just a random match, but one where the characters are teamed with Pokémon who fit their personalities.

These Pokémon flower pots make for some adorable summer gardening. This Ivysaur pot was made by Instructables user chrisma0 who started with a downloadable papercraft model. Apply papier-mâché and paints and you’ve got the perfect Pokémon pot. There’s also a clay version of Ivysaur and even other Pokémon like Venusaur and Oddish.

Dan McCormack has created Lego versions of the Pokémon characters that look so good that they could be a real product. He was inspired to build them after revisiting Pokémon on his PC through an emulator. McCormack then dug out his old Lego bricks and got to work building these beauties. They’ve gone over so well that fans have even created a Lego Ideas Project page in hopes of making them official.

I have no clue if the people in the Pokémon universe actually read anything, but if they did, it would probably involve Pokémon, right? Nintendo seems to think so. The company tweeted out a unique hastag the other day— #pokemonbooktitles—and encouraged people to respond with their own clever Pokémon-themed book titles. The best ones came up with some fun book covers too, as you’ll see below.
