We love a good crochet project, and here’s another for you to try: a Pokemon Bellsprout in a Poke Ball pot. [click to continue…]

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 super posable, adorable, Vulpix Pokemon plush was handmade by Malina Toys and I’m stunned at how lifelike it looks. Malina used clay, faux fur, a wire frame, acrylic paint, varnish, and a lot of artistic talent to make it happen.

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…]

Freelance concept artist Joshua Dunlop created series dubbed “Pokémon Zoology” that features realistic images of classic Pokémon. We’ve seen realistic Pokémon concepts in the past, but these are, like…the realest. [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.

Artist Han Seok-bum recently blended Overwatch and Pokemon characters into one illustrated mishmash that’s both adorable and and eye-catching. His instincts on which characters to combine was spot on too. Yep, I think gruff ol’ Blastoise makes an excellent Soldier 76. Check out more characters below. [click to continue…]

Welp, this Pikachu Mario and Luigi plush combo really, really works. So of course they’re a limited edition item going on sale October 29th at Pokémon Centers in Japan.

But that’s not all of the awesome merch you won’t be able to get your hands on (without paying far, far to much for them on eBay). Torture yourself with more official Pokémon Company / Nintendo crossover items below. [click to continue…]

Internet artsperson The Vintage Realm has created a series of Poké Ball terrariums, each inspired by a different Pokémon. We’ve featured items like these before, but TVR’s versions are really top shelf. So, it’s not surprising that she can’t keep up with the demand in her Etsy store. You may have to be patient to catch one.

Check out some of our favorite Poké Ball terrarrium designs below. [click to continue…]

Badass Metal Hybrid Pokémon

Describing themselves as “a visual arts collective set in the Neo Terra Universe”, Frame Wars have created these amazing Metal Hybrid Pokémon concepts. Pokémon with metal armor and advanced weaponry, as though a biological creature that can literally kill you with its brain isn’t quite extreme enough. But they do look positively stellar, and we wanted to share them with you here. So we did! Aren’t we nice? Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]
