An artist known as Lunumbra has chosen a very unique medium for her work—Pokemon cards. For the last few years she has been working with clients to transform their old, damaged cards into mini masterpieces using acrylic paints and a finishing sealant. Her work has made the rounds on the Internet in the past, but some new works have recently cropped up for those who might be interested in commissioning something of their own.

It’s always a good day when we get a new giant Pikachu video. Whether it’s herds of Pikachu in NYC, a Pikachu dance video, or an army of Pikachus in Yokohama, Japan, we’re all for it.

The most recent entry is this Pikachu at the Pokémon Center in Japan who heard the words denko sekka (quick attack) and busted an adorable move. It’s actually more of an agility move, but we really can’t nitpick something this cute. Watch the video below. [click to continue…]

This one already has a home, but you can commission your own or have her make another custom pet just for you. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

The odds that you have this rare Pokémon card lying around in your collection are extremely slim, but if you do then holy crap—it just sold for a world record $54,970 at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills.

“The Pikachu Illustrator Card was given in January of 1998 to winners of the CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest,” said Barry Sandoval, Director of Operations for Comics at Heritage Auctions. “Only 20-39 copies of this card were released, 10 of which are graded in top condition and it is unknown how many still remain with the public.”

You read that? UNKNOWN. It may be in a box in your attic right this second! Haha…no it isn’t.
