Pikachu is ready for the boardroom in the business suit with glasses and a briefcase. He even comes with three different business card designs. The plushie celebrates the start of Spring in Japan and the time most Japanese companies have new hires begin work.

Unfortunately, Pikachu might not get far in the business world if he insists on not wearing pants.

He’s the first in a year of seasonal Pikachu designs that are planned. A new one will be coming out each month. In April he’ll be celebrating Boys’/Children’s Day with a helmet and carp streamers like the ones that decorate Japanese homes for the day.

Check out the business card designs after the break along with April’s Pikachu.

Guys! These may be the softest, most cuddly Pikachu ever, and they need a good home. Etsy shop xxNostalgic sculpts each needled felted Pokemon by hand and then affixes little glass eyes to basically melt your heart. The figures stand at 2.25 inches tall which is just big enough for a handful of a hug.

But Pikachu isn’t the only petite figure ready for adoption. Check out more of the sweetest Pokemon mini friends after the break.

This fantastic Lego Pokémon Center is full of all the things that a trainer could ever need. It was designed by Savath_Bunny and is currently up for voting over on Lego Ideas. The set comes with 5 minifigures and 5 Pokémon starters along with all sorts of accessories. There’s even a backstory on the Lego Ideas page that reads:

Our heroes have traveled to Kalos City where some much needed rest and relaxation is in store for this group’s Pokémon. Stopping at the local Pokémon Center the team bumps into the knowledgeable Professor Oak. He reminds the friends to always be kind to their Pokémon if they hope to see them evolve someday. After stocking up on essential potions, pokeballs and updating their Pokedex, this band of adventurers are off once again in the pursuit of more gym badges!

If you want to catch this Lego set, then cast your vote to help it get up to the 10,000 necessary for official consideration.

legends of the arena

Pokémon fans have been busy creating their own unofficial games with Pokémon characters. We just saw Pokémon Insurgence last month, and a new game developed by “Wackyturtle” is ready to play. Legends of the Arena focuses on a tournament with Pokémon Colosseum-style battles. You take a personality test to determine which Pokémon you’ll start with, and it will be one eight different Eevee evolutions.

It’s explained on Imgur:

The game begins with a prologue set five years in the past. You control a mysterious character called Bryce, whose battle against the legendary Dragon Master Aemon will have unforeseen consequences…

You then assume the role of the protagonist. The game revolves around a long-running, prestigious tournament which you and your brother decide to enter. There are eight rounds in the tournament, and each Pokémon Colosseum-style battle is equivalent to a gym battle.

It wouldn’t be a Pokémon game without an evil team. The Cult of Shadow has been dormant for years, but lately they’ve come out of hiding to manipulate the tournament for their own ends. They are the only trainers in the game to use the illegal Ghost-type Pokémon.

It’s finally happened. I’ve finally seen a take on Pokémon that isn’t adorable. Artists J. R. Coffron and Stephen Oakley teamed up and created a horrifying combination: zombie Pokémon. Just look at Pikachu! The pocket monsters become actual scary monsters in this art, and I do not want to catch either of them.

This little Pokemon bookmark is easy to make and looks adorable chomping on the pages of your favorite book. It’s the work of imgur user woemygod who made it from simple construction paper that was folded and glued together. You can decorate the face however you choose, so you can customize the Pokemon to your heart’s desire.

What you’re looking at here is a fan-made game called Pokémon Insurgence. It’s completely unofficial, but it just might be better than the real deal.

The biggest challenge in many Pokémon games is that the features come and go depending on the generation, often disappearing in later games. Kotaku notes:

Insurgence mashes together many of the cool features we’ve come to love over the years, like customization, mega evolutions, Pokémon following you in the overworld map, and secret bases—things you’d need to buy three seperate Pokemon games to experience under normal circumstances. Insurgence also adds a few quirks of its own.

These quirks include a darker storyline (its about cultists) and built-in challenges like a Nuzlocke run. There are even new Megas, Delta Pokémon and the option to deck out your Pokémon in armor.

The game isn’t out just yet, but the developer is hoping to have a demo out by the end of the year.

NicoNico user “A” has an incredible amount of patience. The builder took the word “miniature” to the extreme by making small dioramas of Pokémon Red’s Pallet Town, Super Mario 64’s Bob-omb Battefield, and Legend of Zelda’s Hyrule. How small you ask? They fit on a coin the size of a quarter. Seriously. I can’t imagine the precision required to make these dioramas look so great.
