    Fan-Made Pokémon Game Gets Shut Down by Nintendo

    After nine years of development by just two people, Pokémon Uranium came out last week — and disappeared almost as fast. Of course, Pokémon Uranium wasn’t made by official Pokémon developers Game Freak, nor did Nintendo have any hand in it.

    If Disney Princesses Played Pokémon

    In a world where Kingdom Hearts exists, is it really impossible? I don’t know if we’ll ever see the kind of Pokémon x Disney crossover these fan artists have dreamed up, but it’s good to know there’s a strong foundation for one!

    If Pokémon Popped Up in Classic Movie Scenes

    Not content to take over our world, Pokémon are now invading the world of film thanks to — what else? — the magic of photoshop. DesignCrowd, a site that links up freelance designers with potential clients, called for submissions of Pokémon shopped into classic films, and unsurprisingly, the crowd delivered. I’ll be honest, I was expecting to roll my […]
