Eevee Evolutions all about transformation, so I find it perfectly fitting that Little Paper Forest drew these incredible versions of the eight Pokemon Eevee Evolutions as goddesses.

Check out the rest of the series below.

What do you do if you have far too many Lightning energy cards in your Pokémon Trading Card Game deck? If you’re UK-based artist Quentin Devine you use them to make a ruddy great big Pokémon trading card.

Alright, that’s a slightly misleading opening that suggests Devine did this as a spur-of-the-moment independent project. Fact is, The Pokémon Company approached him to create this piece – a gigantic Pikachu card composed of 12,987 individual Pokémon cards. That was good enough to secure the Guinness World Record for largest trading card mosaic as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. The piece measures 32 feet by 23-feet, which has been described as “bloody huge” by me, just now, typing this.

Check out more photos of this monstrosity below.

While Ditto can transform into any Pokémon, that adorable little smile always gives him away. In the case of this new “Henshin! Metamon” (Transform! Ditto) plush series, I think it only makes these Pikachu, Clefairy, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle plushes and keychains more adorable.

You’ll be able to get them at official Pokémon Centers and the Amazon Japan Pokémon store after March 26th.

This past week, Pokemon fans around the world have been celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary in all sorts of fun and surprising ways. For instance, Twitter user @_gamemix_ shared this GIF which highlights the evolution of the series over time, beginning with the original black-and-white game on the old-school Game Boy and moving through time to the current, eye-catching version on the Nintendo 3DS. The GIF, in only a matter of seconds, manages to hit all the right nostalgia buttons.

snorlax bed

Attention. This is not a drill. Bandai made a Snorlax bed. Okay, maybe it’s not officially a bed, but it IS a 59-inch tall, two-foot thick, plush Snorlax that you can lay on and sleep, so there ya go!

My favorite part of this may be the “caution” images that tell you not to put the Snorlax in the middle of the road, or take it swimming.

When you’re a kid, there are few things you want more than the toys and games you can’t have. Nobody knows this more than Reddit user one23abc – he and his brother desperately wanted to play the Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card games, but they couldn’t afford them.

So they built their own card game from the ground up—and it’s fantastic.

“I only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials” is one of the most baffling things an actual human can say with their mouth, but those of you who enjoy the capitalism breaks in your sports events should be pretty bloody happy with this commercial from The Pokémon Company for… well, Pokémon. Specifically, the game’s 20th anniversary. Blimey, I feel old.

Japan continues to excel in making adorable things that you really don’t need but, somehow, desperately want. The newest contenders are these adorable Pikachu futons for your smartphone.

These little Pokemon beds come in those vending machine gashapon capsules and there are five designs, one of which is a mystery surprise.

crystal poke ball

Earlier this year we featured the amazing custom crystal Poke Balls made by PokeMasterCrafter and he sold out his inventory for six months.

Well, they’re finally back in stock and better than ever. But the store is only going to be open for a week.

Each Crystal is made of a high grade k9 crystal the same material used in high end home decor. The crystal is carved into a 80mm diameter(baseball size) ball and has fine point 3d laser engraving done to it. Using the latest in 3d engraving technologies we burn the image straight into the crystal. This laser is 5 times more precise than traditional 3d engraving to offer amazing detail and realism to each Crystal. We then hand press a flat glass button to offer a protruding effect to the ball and then hand paint black rings to offer more depth and detail to the poke ball.

Each ball also comes with a custom made display case and a USB power adaptor for the base. If you want one, you had better jump on it quickly.

Check out an additional image below.
